I return back to my last week (or last several days--I don't remember really) figure of speech about somebody flipping the "switch", which I also mentioned today. The Russia's Foreign Ministry's response to UK with its threat to shut down RT due to Russia, obviously, committing the last poisoning of whoever he (she, it) was and being solely responsible for FC Arsenal not having any prospects, yet again, at EPL title, plus some other British calamities (dentistry?), was rather remarkable:
Maria Zaharova was explicit in explaining to London that:
“I can tell you right now that not a single British media outlet will be working in our country if they shut RT down,”
Lavrov's rebuttal to this stupid neocon former waste management company accountant turned "diplomat" Nikki Hailey was also rather straightforward:
Госпожа Хейли должна понимать, что одно дело — безответственно эксплуатировать микрофон в Совете Безопасности ООН, а другое — когда военные — и российские, и американские — имеют каналы общения, и по этим каналам очень четко сказано, что можно, а что нельзя. И американская коалиция это прекрасно знает
Madame Haily must understand that it is one thing to exploit a microphone in the UN Security Council, totally another is when military people, both Russian and American, have channels of communications and it is clearly articulated through these channels what is allowed and what is not. American coalition knows this very well.
Far from being idealistic on this issue but I always stated that if left to actual real military people in US, chances of Russia and US to settle would grow exponentially. It is also clear that US (and UK) political "elites" are irrational, corrupt and incompetent--a perfect combination for screwing things up big time and, as overwhelming empirical evidence shows, they were doing a swell job in destroying both their own (???) country and the world. Below is not a joke, but aspiration.
