Stephen Cohen: We are closer to a nuclear war with Russia


…by Jonas E. Alexis

Stephen Cohen, professor emeritus of Russian studies and politics at New York University and Princeton University, is one of the best analysts the West has ever produced on issues related to Russia and its relationship with the United States.

Cohen is a contrarian. As such, he doesn’t care about what the mass media establishment and puppets of the New World Order say anymore. He is an old man, so he is not worrying about advancing his career for political or financial gain. He’s already tenured, and what seems to matter to him during this time is truth, not a wicked ideology which can have negative consequences in the political universe.

“There is a circumstance in this country,” Cohen said, “where we have had no debate about whether American policy has contributed” to the ideological conflict between the United States and Russia. Why is that? Well, the Powers That Be and the media do not allow people to have a clear thought in their heads. They want to keep the masses under their control. Cohen declared in 2016:

“The orthodox, consensual, political media establishment view is that only Putin is to blame. We are completely innocent. We never did a single thing in the 25 years since the end of the Soviet Union to bring about a cold war. That isn’t true. But if we try to discuss it…then comes the cries, ‘Puppet of the Kremlin, agent of Putin.’”

Cohen again declared: “This guy [Putin] gives more interviews, more speeches, it’s all available in English” and “no one paid any attention to what Putin said.” Absolutely correct. And if New World Order agents slightly pay some attention, they always end up twisting Putin’s words in order to poison the minds of naïve observers.

John J. Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago said almost the same thing back in 2014. Mearsheimer even argued that “the Ukraine crisis” is actually “the West’s fault.”[1]

Cohen has recently declared that the media establishment hasn’t presented a single evidence showing that Russia is responsible for hacking the US election and for poisoning Sergei and Yulia Skripal in the UK.

“Both blame Putin personally. And no actual facts have yet been made public… No forensic or other evidence has yet been presented as to the nature of the purported nerve agent used or whether Russia still possesses it; or, even if so, whether Russia really is the only state whose agents did so; or when, where, and how it was inflicted on Skripal and his daughter; or why they and many others said to have been affected by this ‘lethal’ agent are still alive.

“Nonetheless, even before the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons has issued its obligatory tests, and while refusing to give the Russian government a required sample to test, the British leaders declared that it was ‘highly likely’ Putin’s Kremlin had ordered the attack.”[2]

Blaming an entire nation for poisoning a former spy without the slightest evidence is not a good move, said Cohen, for it “increases the risk of nuclear war between the United States and Russia.”[3]

Russia indeed does not want to have a war. In fact, Russian officials have repeatedly reached out to the United States. But the Neoconservatives, warmongers and ethnic cleansers in Washington and elsewhere want to see blood in the West again. The Middle East isn’t enough. They have to drink the blood of the Goyim in order to quench their thirst.

That is obviously dangerous. As we said in a previous article, the best way to avoid a nuclear war with Russia is to “drain the swamp”—that is, remove the warmongers in the White House and replace them with people who are interested in reconstituting the moral order in the political landscape.

  1. “the media establishment hasn’t presented a single evidence showing that Russia is responsible for hacking the US election and for poisoning Sergei and Yulia Skripal in the UK.”
    If they had solid evidence for this THEY WOULD HAVE shown it. Few think along these lines and are convinced that what they hear on TV is “evidence”. Those are the fruits of the best education money can buy in the US.

  2. There are more than a few notables, such as Professor Cohen. They remain unknown to the public because, the MSM works as one. The media god sidelines them, their valid views, by not alloting any airtime exposure. This machine we work under is very good at acheiving it’s goals.
