    The anti-Russian hysteria in the US has jumped the Atlantic with the European establishment blaming Russia for almost everything gone wrong in their own countries.

    Journalist Jacques Schuster at Die Welt, believes Russia “behaves like it did 40 years ago,” actively updating its nuclear arsenal and thereby responsible for rising tensions with the West. As an example, Schuster cites the replacement of R-14 missiles by RSD-10’s.

    Russia’s strategic forces are “undermining of parity between Russia and NATO in Europe” Schuster suggested and added that NATO should “double-up”, in particular by placing nuclear missiles in Western Germany.

    German readers of the publication rejected the journalist’s anti-Russian notions, pointing out that Russia’s actions were actually only reciprocal measures. Also, readers warned about the inadvisability of the proposals by the fearmongering journalist:

    “What a war against Russia would mean – even a ten-year-old child can imagine that. The Russians need 7-9 minutes, and for Germany the story will end,” writes Robert H.

    In addition, commentators believe, the deployment of nuclear weapons on Germany territory represents a double standard, since the country had adopted a program to close down their nuclear power plants.

    The alleged “meddling” from Russia, would suppose a significant number of English speakers available in a Russian-speaking environment where English is not the native language – all with a significant interest in foreign affairs. Obviously such a supposition is nonsense, journalist Robert Parry says.

    In the US meanwhile, a recent Rasmussen poll showed 52 percent of likely US voters agree with president Trump’s statement that “… having Russia in a friendly posture, as opposed to always fighting with them, is an asset to the world, and an asset to our country, not a liability.” Only 27 percent disagreed, with another 21 percent undecided.

    Seventy-six percent of Republicans and 51 percent of voters not affiliated with either major party agree with the statement. Among Democrats, 29 percent agreed; 41 percent disagreed, and 29 percent were undecided.
