- US Military Establishment Risking WWIII to Maintain Hegemony: Analyst
The United States military establishment is risking the Third World War in order to maintain American hegemony, a political analyst says.
James Jatras, a former Senate foreign policy adviser in Washington, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Tuesday while commenting on a report which says the United States wants Russia to get used to American military presence on its doorsteps in the Black Sea. As part of its plans to counter what it calls “the Russian aggression,” the US has recently deployed two warships to the Black Sea.
The US Navy announced Saturday that Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Carney had joined USS Ross, another warship of the same family, in the international waters near Russian territories.
It has now turned out that the decision is part of Washington’s efforts to “desensitize Russia” to the US military presence in the Black Sea, which separates Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Western Asia, CNN reported Monday night, quoting an unnamed US military official.
