The West lies about Russia having invaded the Ukraine. America and her allies lie about the nature of the Syrian conflict and how the West built-up terrorist forces as a proxy army.  American-led NATO has been encircling Russia while claiming that Russia is a massive aggressor.  In exchange for the peaceable dissolution of the Warsaw Pact and the integration of West and East Germany following the demise of the Soviet Union and the so-called ending of the Cold War, the U.S. made verbal commitments that America would not expand NATO.

These are all facts that are not discussed in American and Western mainstream media in general.  America only took a brief intermission from the Cold War and continues to advance policies intent on creating containment and friction with Russia.  The Neocon and Atlanticist faction of the American foreign policy establishment is even in favor of outright destabilizing Russia.  America has an aggressive empire-protecting foreign policy and so-called liberals and progressives are now even duped by American propaganda.

In the following interview, Ron Paul Institute Executive Director Daniel McAdams correctly frames the issue.  Policy makers beholden to the Military Industrial Congressional Media Complex do not outright wish to see World War III.  But they want to keep empire and its spoils up and running.  Thus, the aggression continues, covered-up by propaganda that has some liberals thinking Putin is Hitler and conservatives blind to the boot that is on the neck of American liberty, prosperity and our very freedoms.  If you think I’m being over the top, you haven’t done your homework.

In the following 5+ minute interview, Daniel McAdams sets the record straight on the Senate’s vote to approve admitting Montenegro into NATO.  –  Eric Dubin, Managing Editor, The News Doctors.

TND Interview Spotlight:  RPI’s Daniel McAdams

The Senate vote to admitting Montenegro to NATO was not at all about US security or the US national interest, according to the Senators who voted for it. It was all about Russia. It was all about the “Russian threat.” It’s all about creating momentum for new NATO members even close to Russia, like Ukraine or Georgia. RPI’s Daniel McAdams is interviewed by RT America about the recent vote on Montenegro:
