US Political Schizophrenia

May 18th, 2017

Stephen Lendman

The Mayo Clinic calls the disease “a severe mental disorder in which people interpret reality abnormally, (including) some combination of hallucinations, delusions, and extremely disordered thinking and behavior that impairs daily functioning, and can be disabling.”

It’s “a chronic condition, requiring lifelong treatment.” Symptoms include beliefs not based on reality - bad enough in people, potentially catastrophic for nuclear powers afflicted this way.

Vladimir Putin called America “political(ly) schizophreni(c),” - an out-of-control monster threatening world peace, my comment not his, though no doubt we’re likeminded.

On Wednesday, he diplomatically ridiculed the phony accusation of Trump providing Sergey Lavrov and Russian ambassador to Washington Sergey Kislyak with classified information on ISIS.

“(W)e are ready to provide the (US) Congress with the transcript of the (Oval Office) conversation between” these officials to prove no US state secrets were revealed, he said.

Claims otherwise were falsified to bash Russia and Trump, an insidious plot continuing endlessly, the outrageous way Washington operates.

Kremlin aide Yury Ushakov explained no Russian audio recording was made, a written transcript alone available, yet likely to be just as accurate, revealing exactly what was discussed and language used.

On Tuesday, Trump tweeted, “(a)s president I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled WH meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining…

…to terrorism and airline flight safety. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism.”

Having delegated warmaking to neocon generals, it’s unclear what he knows or doesn’t know about US military operations - before or after events occur.

According to Putin, hysteria is America’s problem, not Russia’s. Reason won’t resolve anything given longstanding US hostility toward Moscow, inventing reasons to vilify its policies and leadership.

Throughout the presidential campaign, Trump was bashed for wanting improved relations with Russia, opposition to how NATO is run, and criticizing the “mess” from US interventionism, among other reasons.

Now it’s largely for invented reasons instead of legitimate ones. He’s in trouble, fighting for his political life.
