Putin Distrusts Biden
by Stephen Lendman
Hegemon USA can never be trusted.
Time and again, it pledges one thing, then goes another way.
In stark contrast to Putin calling Sino/Russian relations at an "unprecedentedly high level" based on shared interests and mutual cooperation, he distrusts Washington for good reasons.
According to international affairs Professor Li Haidong:
"Putin has no trust in the US government at all."
"Russia has been frequently betrayed by the US after the Cold War."
"So there is no chance for some US strategists to unilaterally expect any breakthrough from the upcoming Putin-Biden summit."
He called Washington's Cold War strategy against China and Russia an agenda doomed to fail.
The US "is playing the role of the (former) Soviet Union," not the Russian Federation or China.
Hardline US policy bonds both countries closer together.
On Saturday, Putin slammed Washington's imperial agenda, saying:
"As a former citizen of the Soviet Union could see, the problem of empires is that they think they are so powerful that they can afford small inaccuracies and mistakes," adding:
"But problems will keep piling up. And, at some point, they are no longer able to cope with them."
The US today is "walking the Soviet Union's path," a self-destructive agenda.
On virtually everything related to military, security and economic issues, the US-dominated West betrayed Moscow time and again — notably since the Soviet Union dissolved in December 1991.
"In the eyes of the US and its Western allies, Russia is a polar bear," according to an unnamed Chinese foreign affairs expert, adding:
"The bear, in their eyes, is becoming slimmer now, but these countries want to do more to harm Russia."
"They hope that the bear had better die one day so that they can eat the meat and take the skin."
The above remarks referred to Putin once saying the following:
Western nations are "constantly trying to sweep us into a corner because we have an independent position, because we maintain it, and because we call things like they are and do not engage in hypocrisy."
"They will always try to chain the bear. And once it's chained, they'll rip out its teeth and claws. They'll stuff it."
They want Russia co-opted. "They (falsely) think they have won."
"Do we want relations on an equal basis?"
"Yes, we do, but on the condition that our national interests are respected in the sphere of security and in the sphere of economy."
Russia isn't and won't be a "soft toy."
If attacked, it'll respond with formidable military might.
Lavrov said "(w)e have repeatedly stressed that attempts to speak to Russia (in) the language of ultimatums is totally unacceptable and will yield no results."
Dominant Western hardliners want Russia weakened, isolated and contained.
They seek control over the world community of nations.
No possibility exists for improved relations between hegemon USA and nations unwilling to sacrifice their sovereign rights to its interests.
In stark contrast to US war on humanity, Russia and China respect each other and the interests of other nations.
On Friday, Lavrov and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi pledged continuated close strategic ties on international and strategic issues.
They support multilateralism over Western-style hegemonism.
They prioritize world peace, stability, fairness and justice, according to Lavrov.
Hegemon USA and its imperial partners pursue a polar opposite agenda — especially under undemocratic Dems.
Biden regime hardliners pursue wrecking ball policies on the world stage.
Given three-and-a-half years to go in their illegitimate term and another one perhaps to follow by stealing the 2024 election, is global war 3.0 likely ahead on their watch?
