Next US Secretary Of State Is Going To Put End To 'Soft Policy' Toward Russia

CIA Director Mike Pompeo, who will be the next US Secretary of State, is going to tell the Senate that the “soft policy” toward Russia “is over”, according to his prepared remarks obtained by the Associated Press.

Pompeo will criticize Russia for acting “aggressively” and emphasize that the US considered Russia “a danger” to itself.

“The actions of this administration make clear that President [Donald] Trump’s national security strategy, rightfully, has identified Russia as a danger to our country. Our diplomatic efforts with Russia will prove challenging, but as in previous confrontations with Moscow, must continue,” Pompeo said in a Congress testimony.

However, Pompeo stressed that Washington’s diplomatic efforts “would continue” as the US had the “duty to lead” and the “war is the last resort”:

“If we do not lead the calls for democracy, prosperity and human rights around the world, who will?”

“No other nation is equipped with the same blend of power and principle”.

It seems that the main goal of Pompeo is to persuade senators that he plans to strengthen the State Department and to re-establish the national security policy. Pompeo is intending to harden the US foreign policy amid the complicated international situation.

This “hardened” policy, especially amid the developing crisis in Syria, will likely become another factor contributing to further confrontation between the US and Russia.

On April 11, the White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders clearly stated that the US does not rule out striking Russian forces in Syria. So, this is not hard enough, right?

    there never was soft policy. They were always pretending to be friends and were stabbing everyone in the back. Its just the empire casting away any illusion of a peaceful country. The wolf threw away its sheep clothing.

    So basically, the US will now double down on trying to politically, economically and militarily blackmail and threaten Russia into giving up their support for the existing Syrian political leadership and institutions.

  • Luutzen

    Well, until the first US aircraft carrier strike group sinks, Pompeo will have a BIG mouth.

    After that, he will beg for peace!

    The US has diplomacy? WTF? Since when? Unless you define diplomacy as shouting, shrieking, bullying, cajoling, threatening, generally being an ass to everyone. Including your own socalled allies.

    I reckon the art of diplomacy became lost in the US when Kissinger retired. Of course he was foreign secretary in a time when the US was considered weak.

    This Shabbas Goy is happy to fight to the last American Goy for his Jewish slave masters. Chicken hawk racist supremacist cowardly Jews always run away when they know they will die in any conflict they start, which is why they have not attacked Iran on their own years ago. Their talents are in lying cheating, stealing and manipulating the Goyims as Racist supremacist Jews can’t create or do anything themselves. Just let racist jews know they will be the first to go in any conflict they start and they will never start any such conflict , instant peace!
    See former congress woman says USSA Congress forced to sign loyalty oath to Racist supremacist global Jewish confederate slave empire Israel above their oaths to America, its Israel not America first. Its not an oath of loyalty to Britain above America. So its the Zionist empire not the Anglo Zionist empire.

    The only Member of the sitting US Congress we can document so far that has refused to sign the AIPAC Loyalty Oath to put Israel first even before America is Representative Walter Jones.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ImFMcbF2MYY
    Despite AIPAC’s efforts to get him un-elected he was re-elected Congress anyhow, unlike the great and fearless American Hero former US Representative Cynthia McKinney, a true American Patriot who tells the truth, the whole truth.
    Representative McKinney refused to sign this AIPAC Loyalty Oath to put Israel first even over America, which of course would be a direct violation of the Oath of Office any Member of Congress takes upon being seated.
    Why is it such a serious matter to get these signers of the AIPAC Loyalty Oath out of Congress? The reason is obvious, without these Traitors who are sellouts to AIPAC and Israel, America could not have been transformed into a virtual province of Israel.

    Pompeo;; Soft USA politics is the result of USA weakeness. Is not easy to be strong against other strong powers as China and Russia,

    I think everyone is sick and tired of the US smearing its filthy political system on otherwise innocent countries. The only thing that can describe US foreign policy is pure malice.

  • Justin

    i honestly believe this is all a bluff! Its what they call “posturing”! Yes an attack may occur but u dont say u will attack, u just do it! u dont give ur enemy time to prepare!
    I am telling u that this is all to do with domestic politics in the USA!
    Its a diversion from what is going down in Washington!
    I am certain that no attack will occur but if it does it will be small like the last time! (60 crusie missiles) maybe 100but defendable and changing nothing to Syria’s progress!
    I am certain of this!

  • You can call me Al

    Oh vey, it is all going to plan…hehehehe.

    The statements befor and during such an congressional hearing should not be taken reasonable. They need the congressional acceptance and always tell what the asking congressmen want to hear, how important the american values, free market, liberty and how shitty the Russians and Chinese are.
