Disinfo: The US wants to destroy the Middle East in order…

Summary

The US wants to destroy the Middle East in order to solve its economic problems through reaching gas and oil resources, and only Russia is fighting against terrorism.

Disproof

No evidence given for the claims. Western military action in Syria and Iraq has clearly targeted Daesh. In contrast, despite the constant Russian rhetoric that it is fighting Daesh, the evidence is that it has in fact done little; that it has fabricated some of the proof provided bit.ly/1YdW2QE;, and that Russian air strikes have been responsible for hundreds of civilian deaths bit.ly/1ZoAdiR, .

Europeans are very loudly calling for strong leaders like Putin, who can carry out unpopular policies in order to stop the current crisis. Now, the Europeans are faced with a choice: follow traditional cooperation with the US or breach it and cooperate with the Great Russian Empire.

Disproof

No evidence for these "very loud calls" given.

The US government is threatening Russian diplomats with criminal prosecution in case they attempt to be present at the polls during the US presidential election.

Disproof

No evidence given. Criminal prosecution of diplomats is highly unlikely as they are protected by diplomatic immunity. The Russian Embassy in Washington did issue a statement claiming that it received threats saying that presence of Russian diplomats at the polls could be seen as a criminal act (bit.ly/2ewYima), . This information remains unconfirmed by US authorities.
