What Putin said in Sochi last year still applies: the US regards “Russia, because of its military might, China because of its rising economic power and Iran because of its nuclear program” as “enemies.”
What Lavrov said after that pathetic SOTU address, where Bamalama said that US “policy” over Ukraine left Moscow isolated and its economy “in tatters”, also totally applies.
Washington IS set on “confrontation”; “There’s just one thing at the heart of (their) philosophy: ‘We are number one’ and the rest should acknowledge that”. And yes, talk about a huge understatement; “This is a bit out of date and does not correspond to modern realities.”
Every drop in the ocean and every grain of sand in the desert know the US “wants to dominate the world.”
Lavrov was being TOO diplomatic. Time for Russia, China and Iran not to take Empire of Chaos blah blah blah seriously anymore.
