Biden says clash between West and Russia is inevitable. --->
Vice President Joe Biden denounced Russia and claimed Europe and the US must stand up to Vladimir Putin to defend the “liberal international order” in a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos on 1/18
Biden said the West was headed for a clash with Russian ideals.
“Russia is working with every tool available to them to whittle away at the edges of the European project, test for fault lines among Western nations, and return to a politics defined by spheres of influence,” he remarked. “Simply put, Russia has a different vision for the future, which they are pursuing across the board.”
“They seek a return to a world where the strong impose their will through military might, corruption, or criminality — while weaker neighbors fall in line.”
The speech was clearly aimed at promulgating the leftist/globalist McCarthyite Russian conspiracy while normalizing the idea of a potential conflict with the nation at some point in the future. The vice president once again peddled fiction about Russia meddling in the US election despite the CIA admitting its own assessment on the matter yielded inconclusive results.
President-elect Donald Trump has been widely criticized by corporate old media outlets and political elites for promising to rebuild US-Russian relations and work together to defeat radical Islamic terrorism in the Middle East.
Biden’s speech was also likely a response to the undeniable (and growing) resentment towards globalist policies in the Western world.
