PRESS TV Posted Tues., July 22, 2014
The United States, Europe and Israel are seeking to start a war with Russia over the situation in Ukraine, as such a conflict would benefit US and Zionist interests, a political commentator in San Antonio, Texas says.
US President Barack Obama and other American officials working on behalf of “Zionist and banking interests” are trying to facilitate a conflict with Russian President Vladimir Putin over Ukraine, Mark Dankof, a broadcaster and former US Senate candidate, told Press TV on Monday.
“The people of the United States and the entire world are being lied to in all likelihood by the President of the United States and by all these other American governmental spokesmen because they want a war, they’re seeking a war,” he said
“They’re trying to do everything they can to minimize Putin’s influence in the world as well as to retaliate against him for his diplomacy in the Syrian situation that prevented the implementation of Israeli war plan in that country,” he added.
In recent days, Washington and its allies have tried to indirectly blame Moscow for the downing of a passenger plane over the Ukrainian territory, where pro-Russian groups are operating against the central government.
On Sunday, former US Congressman Ron Paul defended the Russian government and slammed Western leaders for spreading “propaganda” after a Malaysian Airlines plane was allegedly shot down by the anti-Kiev groups.
Paul said the recent plane crash in Ukraine would “have the least benefit” for Russia, and Putin is smart enough not to participate “in an act like this.”
On July 17, Malaysian Airline Flight MH17 was reportedly shot down over Ukraine’s volatile Donetsk region, while travelling to Kuala Lumpur from the Dutch capital Amsterdam. All 298 people on board died.
