The United States could possibly wage a war at a global level in the new year, says political analyst Stephen Lendman.
“America is the rogue state that literally risks the possibility of a global war that could even erupt this year,” Lendman, an author and a radio host, told Press TV on Thursday.
He made the remarks when asked about new US threats against Russia and its plan to deploy more than 150 tanks and armored vehicles in Europe.
Lieutenant-General Ben Hodges, commander of the US Army in Europe, has said the Pentagon had planned to deploy the tanks and vehicles by the end of 2015.
Lendman said “the possibility of the world’s two most formidable nuclear powers coming to some kind of conflict together possibly in the new year” is something that scares everyone.
The US is making new threats amid media reports that Washington and Moscow are holding talks aimed at reducing tension between the two states.
However, Lendman said “Don’t look at the statements that come out of Washington or in the major media, look at the policies that have been instituted and judge America based on that.”
“While these talks are going on, America gets increasingly belligerent against Russia,” he said.
He went on to say that “the so-called Ukraine Freedom Act…authorizes lethal and non-lethal aid to the fascist that America installed running Ukraine giving them weapons so they can wage war against their own people so they can saber rattle against Russia.”
“The US-dominated NATO is to pull in increasing numbers of US forces in eastern Europe together with other NATO countries, Eastern European countries, all of these extremely belligerent, extremely hostile to Russia,” he noted.
The US and its allies accuse Russia of sponsoring military activities in Ukraine. The Kremlin has firmly rejected the accusations.
