With great sadness I read the news about the Russian_plane crash, leaving 92 people dead, including many members of the famous Alexandrov Military Choir, nine journalists and Elizaveta Glinka, member of Putin´s advisory human rights cousil. The plane was on its way to Syria where the Army Choir was to give a Christmas concert.
Alexandrov Military Choir:
My thoughts are with the victims and their beloved ones being left in great griev at Christmas.
But my thoughts also went to last August, when the former CIA deputy director and Clinton supporter, Michael Morell demanded the covert killings of Russians and Iranians on behalf of Syria:
Really an Accident?
In face of those words it doesn´t seem to be absurd asking such a question. The „Deep_State„ of the US is designing its own policy. It could be that this is meant as a sobotage towards Trump´s announced „Detente“ towards Russia – without the knowledge and consent even of the sitting US President. The US Power Elite is surely infuriated about the bloody nose they got in Syria. It should also be kept in mind that only a few days ago the Russian ambassador in Turkey was killed.
We shouldn´t also forget the strange events around the Snowden case, when Putin spoke some surprising words. What that CIA deputy director demanded were covert killings which could be clearly understood as such by the respective governments without being able to proof it. It is thus understandable that Russian comments ruled a sabotage out, not to be under pressure to react at once to a possible provocation.
If the suspicion I´ve expressed here should be valid that should really worry us since that would mean new escalations for the year to come!
