The United States is “fabricating all sorts of facts” about Russia as a pretext to wage a devastating war with the nuclear-armed country, an American activist and journalist says.
A resolution passed recently in the US House of Representatives condemning Russia, completely fabricated all sorts of “facts and factoids” in order to create a narrative with the intended outcome of war with Russia, Mark Glenn told Press TV on Monday.
Russia “is a very well armed nuclear power and the United States is getting itself involved in a fight here that she simply cannot walk away from this thing without getting severely wounded,” said Glenn, the co-founder of the Crescent and Cross Solidarity Movement.
In an article published on Sunday, former US Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul said American lawmakers are seeking to drag the US into a war with Russia by passing anti-Russian resolutions.
“Last week the US House voted overwhelmingly in favor of an anti-Russia resolution so full of war propaganda that it rivals the rhetoric from the chilliest era of the Cold War,” Paul wrote.
Tensions between the United States and Russia have escalated steadily since April, when the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea reunited with the Russian Federation following a referendum a month earlier.
Washington accuses Moscow of arming and supporting pro-Russian forces fighting in the predominantly Russian-speaking areas in eastern Ukraine. Moscow calls the accusations “groundless”.
The US-led military buildup in NATO member states bordering Russia has drawn strong objections from Moscow, followed by warnings of a well-measured response.
The United States plans to bolster its armored presence and keep rotations of American troops in Eastern Europe to provide “deterrence against Russian aggression.”
