Pot – kettle
Our foreign secretary is reported as warning Russia off starting a new cold war. Or words to that effect.
Someone remind me: which two governments have been in the vanguard of every new international war since the end of the cold war? And the underlying reason: which two economies are most dependent on their armaments industries? Clue – it’s not Russia.
Someone remind me: who harbours and protects a billionaire from Yeltsin’s kleptocratic gangster era, who openly supports the violent overthrow of the russian government? Clue: it’s not Afghanistan.
Someone remind me: who appears to be trying to present an either/or choice to countries like Ukraine, and making it politically hard for them to maintain friendships with both Russia and the West without the one prejudicing the other?
Pot – Kettle.
Note – I’m not making any comment for or against anything Russia may be doing (that’s the business of russian bloggers, not mine). Just on the shameful hypocrisy of some nearer to home.
