Disinfo: The Biden Administration wants to provoke a war against China, Russia and Iran

Summary

While the US is disintegrating, the new government wants to provoke a war against China, Russia and Iran. The US will either be militarily destroyed by such a war or will disintegrate first.

Disproof

This article combines two recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives: the narrative about the aggressive and dangerous nature of US and Western foreign policies, accused of pursuing a belligerent and hostile agenda towards Russia and China, threatening world peace and the claim that the US facing an imminent state collapse, disintegration or civil war.

There is no evidence, as the article suggests, that the Biden administration is preparing to go to war against China, Russia and Iran.

A priority of the Biden administration’s foreign policy, as outlined in the Democratic manifesto, is to re-establish diplomatic agreements that were abandoned during former President Donald Trump's America First foreign policy.

On 18 February 2021, the Biden administration took the first steps to restore the Iran nuclear deal that the Trump administration had abandoned. The Biden administration is expected to continue many aspects of Trump's tough policies towards China, though in a more moderate style and in closer cooperation with US allies. Also, Biden has signalled a willingness to extend the New START Treaty with Russia, describing it as an "anchor of strategic stability between the United States and Russia."

Moreover, there is no evidence that the US is heading for disintegration and civil war. Predictions about a disintegration of the US have been a common pro-Kremlin narrative since the fall of the Soviet Union.

Read similar cases claiming that the systemic collapse of American society is now obvious, the Biden regime will involve the US in a conflict with Russia, China and Iran.

Sweden has decided to obstruct Nordstream 2

Sweden has decided to obstruct the project of the gas pipeline Nordstream 2. A member of the Swedish parliament has appealed for this to the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Sweden.

Disproof

A recurring disinformation narrative about the Nord Stream 2. A question in the parliament does not mean that Sweden “will obstruct” the construction of Nord Stream 2.

The commotion around Navalny is a scheme to hide Khodorkovsky’s plans

Mikhail Khodorkovsky is at least for the moment, the most serious figure among the emigrant politicians, hostile to the Russian state and people. Without posing as a leader, he finances others, the most dangerous anti-Russian revolutionary projects. What we see is only the tip of the iceberg.

All the commotion that Navalny managed to create with his return and his arrest, all the illegal meetings with a participation of less than 200 000, all those torch lights 14 February and the discussions whether Yuliya Navalnaya is a Russian Svyatlana Tsikhanouskaya or even Winnie Mandela… These are facts. It is really a secret operation against Russia, well planned and maybe even with chances to succeed – but it is also an cover up.

Secure in exile there is a person, who has the possibility to invest from his own money in a new destructive Russian revolution no less recourses than Soros. This is also a fact. It is wise not to forget about this.

Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny was arrested and shortly after sentenced to prison following his return to Russia from Germany, where he was treated for poisoning with a Novichok-type chemical nerve agent. The European Union has condemned his arrest and demanded his immediate release.
