Wed Dec 3, 2014 11:1AM GMT
Former US congressman Dennis Kucinich has revealed that the House of Representatives is about to give a green light to another Cold War against Russia.Kucinich, former US Representative from Ohio, wrote in an article on portal globalresearch.ca that Washington has plans for restarting the Cold War against Moscow.
House Resolution 758, which cited a list of "grievances, old and new, against Russia" is "tantamount to a 'Declaration of Cold War'," Kucinich wrote.
He believes that if the resolution gets approved, it will effectively open the gates of global catastrophe. House Resolution 758 is up for debate last Wednesday.
"NATO encirclement, the US-backed coup in Ukraine, an attempt to use an agreement with the European Union to bring NATO into Ukraine at the Russian border and a US nuclear first-strike policy are all policies which attempt to substitute force for diplomacy," he added.
Kucinich also warned US Congress that the country’s treasury is being drained for Washington’s “military adventures.”
He noted that the resolution demanded Russia to be isolated and in other words, “let’s get ready for war with Russia.”
In an interview last week, hawkish Republican Senator John McCain rejected a possible conflict between the United States and Russia.
“There would never be an all-out war with Russia that I know of. I know of no scenario where that would happen,” he said in an interview with euronews broadcast on Friday.
Ties between Washington and Moscow have been deteriorated over the crisis in Ukraine.
The US and its allies accuse Moscow of sending troops into eastern Ukraine in support of the pro-Russian forces. Russia, however, denies the accusation.
The United States and the European Union imposed sanctions on Moscow. Russia, for its part, has imposed retaliatory bans.
