U.S. Aims To Name Russia A State Sponsor Of Terrorism

Click to see full-size image

The US may name Russia a state sponsor of terrorism This is a new level of the deterioration of relations. If this is done, the relations will be damaged even further.

On December 11th, the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations is to consider a bill that could potentially designate Russia as a “state sponsor of terrorism.”

The bill was proposed by Republican Senator Cory Gardner on April 11th, 2019.

If it is approved and pushed forward by the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, “S. 1189: Stopping Malign Activities from Russian Terrorism Act” needs to be voted in the US Senate, and House of Representatives.

If it passes those steps, it needs to be signed into law by US President Donald Trump.

If all that takes place, then the bill would enforce the following:

“To require the Secretary of State to determine whether the Russian Federation should be designated as a state sponsor of terrorism and whether Russian-sponsored armed entities in Ukraine should be designated as foreign terrorist organizations.”

The term “state sponsor of terrorism” means a country, which the US Secretary of State has determined has repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism.

If the bill passes, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, currently, would have 90 days to submit a determination on whether Russia fits the profile of such a designation.

In addition to this, another designation would be that of the “Russian-supported armed forces in the Donbas region of Ukraine as foreign terrorist organizations.”

“Not later than 90 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of State shall submit a determination to the appropriate congressional committees that indicates whether armed entities that are physically present in the Donbas region of Ukraine and are controlled or aided by the Russian Federation, or armed entities that are associated or controlled by the “Donetsk People’s Republic” or the “Lugansk People’s Republic”, meet the criteria to be designated as foreign terrorist organizations”

This is a new level of deterioration of relations between Moscow and Washington and would further exacerbate not only relations on a global scale, but designating the military personnel of the DPR and LPR might lead to severe escalations in Eastern Ukraine.

Separately, on October 30th, US Senator Ted Cruz proposed legislation for the US to unilaterally withdraw from the Open Skies Treaty, because there was no way of knowing that Russia was “abiding by their international military commitments and agreements.”

Senator Ted Cruz claims that the US is on the losing end, mostly because Russia claims South Ossetia and Abkhazia are independent, but the US doesn’t believe that, thus they must be hiding something there, since the Open Skies Treaty bans flights within 10 miles from a national border.

At the same time, a 2016 State Department review found that the U.S. had conducted 196 reconnaissance flights over Russia by that point, more than twice the 71 reconnaissance flights Russia had conducted over the U.S.

If both or either of these bills were to pass and were put into law, this risks deteriorating relations even further between Moscow and Washington.

      Nowadays, they wouldn’t let somebody like on to CNN anymore…

  • JoeAlpha

    It looks like US / NATO is running out of ways to corner Russia. Every means is used to blame Russia. Are they aware that they themselves are the biggest terrorist supporters in the world today! Economic sanctions, sending weapons to Russian enemies, recruiting eastern European countries into NATO, surrounding Russia with military bases and anti-missile system, helping terrorists in the Middle East, creating a regime change demonstration, they seem to have realized that the methods they used to bring Russia down didn’t produce the results. NATO in panic mode after seeing Russia still standing strong, even stronger!

    • Pave Way IV

      I don’t think Russia’s enduring strength is whats causing panic in NATO or especially the Pentagon. What really worries them is that – despite all the desperate demonization propaganda – about half of al US military households still consider Russia an ally, not an enemy. They’re simply not buying the bullshit and probably never will. Among all other Americans (non-military, no skin in the game), you still have 28% calling Russia an ally.

      Demonizing a common, imaginary enemy everyone must defend the against is always the primary way psychopaths control the little people. After thirty years of dual-citizen, treasonous chickenhawk neocons’ efforts to conjure up Cold War II, they have failed to convince half of the US military that Russia is an enemy. The neocons have also exhausted all credibility of their mouthpieces, the MSM. The US little people are starting to get pretty skeptical after so many obvious false flags, so the neocons screwed that pooch, too. They honestly got nothing else left but war. If US soldiers won’t attack Russia, then they have to get US soldiers to attack the US. Civil wars are great for consolidating power and stealing everything in sight, but I can’t see the neocons having much luck there.

      • JoeAlpha

        Yes, that factor also plays an important role. Increasingly more and more US citizens are aware that they are being led in the opposite direction of their will. Unfortunately there are still many of them who have been successfully brainwashed. One problem for most Americans (especially the current generation) is their lack of curiosity about the world’s geopolitical development. The current generation doesn’t want to know what is happening around them let alone for the situation of other countries across the ocean. If there is another civil war in the US, it will be the end of the neocons and the end of the zionist lobby on American soil, they are the masterminds of all this chaos! Hopefully more and more true American patriots will realize that their main enemy is right in front of them.

        • Pave Way IV

          They are the current masterminds of all this chaos, Joe. It would be a mistake to think that stringing up treasonous neocons today and banning any Israeli-linked lobbying under penalty of death would ‘fix’ the broken US state. Psychopathy infects organizations themselves (state or otherwise) and they will just produce new ones even if the current batch of psychopaths is removed. Americans (any nation, as a matter of fact) has to recognize the nature of the disease to ever be able to contain and control it. Casting out the currently infected is about as useful as trying to cure bubonic plague in a filthy rat-infested slum just by banishing sick people. Unfortunately, recognizing the disease seems beyond the critical thinking ability of most Americans, so I guess the best I could hope for is a purge and less annoying replacements.

  • Garga

    Of course they do.

    But we know what “state sponsor of terrorism”™ means in newspeak, don’t we? Russia dared to terrorize America’s cuddly little terrorists and there will be consequences.

    If done so, Russia will be the last recipient of this honour, reserved for only a handful of stubborn countries who routinely wreck America’s plans and $hit, dispatching their assets, the usual unforgivable stuff.

    Just like an “Anti-Semite” badge from “Iron Simon Wohl PhD” combination is considered a badge of honour.

      It is rare for anyone to witness the dying days of an empire and the US is certainly dying from within and without.

      The political morons in the US seem to have missed that China and Russia, and to a lesser extent ,Iran, CANNOT be dictated to by the US morons.

      Wars of words and cyber warfare will not win against a war with real blood against any nations that can also totally destroy the USA.

      The US today is totally bankrupt of money and ideas.
      Soon to be Zimbabwee 2.0.

        They are gettin’ more & more Ridiculous & Hilarious by the day..what a comedy…The only thing the Rest of the World has got to do is Neutralize any threat that these AngloZioNazi-Looney-Tunes-Comedians can pose…Just make sure that they are not able to Prey on a new Host to suck bone dry….The VEMPIRE is bound to fall…crumbling right in front of our eyes…

        • FlorianGeyer

          The US Empire needs to much blood now that small nations are unable to supply in big enough quantities.

          The US/UK have always coveted the Resources of the largest, by land mass, country in the world, Russia.

          The US/UK also covet the population of China as slaves. Yet they fail to accept that riots in Hong Kong and Gunboats are not able to subdue China as they did in the 19th century Opium Wars.

    • JustPassingThrough

      very true.
      i wonder who elected them?

      • Tony B.

        U.S. elections no longer have anything to do with how the people vote. They are totally fixed by the Rothschild cabal. The whole election cycle is total theater with the media doing the “bosses” wishes, following the script.
        Quit the nonsense of “the people elect these monsters into office.”

        Besides, even if the people actually had a real vote and voted them all out of office, those replacing them would be absolutely no different as the cabal owns the parties and every last person who is allowed on a ballot.

        • Hasbara Hunter

          Elections are the Illusion of having something to chose…who counts the votes?

          • Tony B.

            In most cases it’s doubtful that they are counted at all. Not required for media theater.

            As mentioned, different “winners” (all Rothschild prostitutes) would make no difference whatsoever.

    USA = state sponsor of terrorism of many forms worldwide
    1) unconditional support to israel (known human rights abuser/occupier of Palestine, a terror state)
    2) unconditional support to saudi arabia (known human rights abuser, waging starvation and war on Yemen, has strict wahabbi sharia law similar to ISIS, a terror state), mostly financial and military
    3) supported FSA,Al-Qaeda with TOW missiles,logistics,medical supplies, weapons in Syria since 2012
    4) supports former ISIS fighters now called MAT (FSA) in al-tanf
    5) supported mujahideen/Osama Bin Laden-led units during Soviet-Afghan War
    6) funds and supports the WhiteHelmets – known Al-Qaeda linked group that fakes attacks with actors
    7) allowed ISIS to take control of swathes of Syrian/Iraqi territory, provided them air support during battles against Syrian Government forces in Eastern Syria (2016 deir ezzor strikes)
    …… the list goes on and on

  • Long Nose Larry, Ph.D

    Spoke with current US Marines and Army soldiers, they both told me during training sessions, their superiors give them long lectures of the “Global Russian Threat” and the “Need to protect Israel from the Iranian Threat”. They were also told that Israel and Saudi Arabia are the two most important nations in the world needing US protection, and the biggest allies that must never fall no matter the circumstance, even if it means losing everything. All enemies of Israel/Saudi Arabia were shown as monsters, and the brainwashing was intense. I asked if they knew who creates these instructions, they told me that IDF Officers instruct their superiors on what to say and what to teach. There you go.

  • JustPassingThrough

    ” might lead to severe escalations in Eastern Ukraine.”
    who is going to do the escalating?
    the ukies?
    does one think that FR and DE give a s**t what the US escalates things to?
    does one think that nato now will have a reason to attack RU?
    get serious.

    RuAF SU-35 successfully intercepted a pair of Kike Airforce “stealthy” F-35s! They were detected from Hmeimim upon takeoff in Palestine. https://www.jpost.com/International/Russian-Su-35s-scrambled-to-stop-Israel-over-T-4-Russia-Iran-media-claim-610329

    • northerntruthseeker .

      The F35 is NOT ‘stealthy” at all, since “stealth” is a sham, a lie, and nothing more than a selling point to rape nations of money to buy such useless pieces of junk!

      • d’Artagnan

        F-35 is a total dud, both Russians and Iranians can detect it even with SU-35 and the IRIAF upgraded F-14A Persian Cats which now have new radars. 50 plus Persian cats that are being modernized to extend their operative life. Domestic upgrades include avionics, weapons (R-73E, AIM-54A+ “Fakkur”, AIM-54A, AIM-7E and AIM-9J are among the air to air
        missiles adapted to the aircraft’s fire control system). Iran has begun upgrading the Tomcats with new radar components, radios, navigation systems and wiring while also adding compatibility with R-73 and Hawk/Shahin missiles.

        Five decades in, Iran’s F-14s are only getting better and better. And more and more important to the Persian state’s defense.

    • d’Artagnan

      It was confirmed by Russian media as well. Looks like Russia is finally waking up. The Zionists are using Jordanian and Saudi puppets airspace, but both Iran and Russia have moved phased array long distance radars into southeast Syria and can now detect the Zionist aircraft. Jordan needs to be careful before drones visit Amman.

    The dollar bound sales of oil and gas is soon ending, and US dollar will face real evaluation and fixed value. Then US economy will collapse, starting with the banking system and government guaranteed debt notes.
    This is, what they try to prevent.

    Russia should do the same!…USA support terrorist in libya and Syria!

    • Hasbara Hunter

      Russia better lets the U.S. of A. Cry & Moan…Empty Words & Hollow Phrases…The AngloZioNazis are in Panic & are pretty desperate as you can see…

    • Ivan Freely

      The entire World needs to make such a declaration.

  • Dick Von Dast’Ard

    Exactly what one would expect of a country with a major sulk problem.

    • Ivan Freely

      Cutting off diplomatic ties can be tricky as it could lead to an actual hot war. I know the US is actively trying to find ways to start one but care needs to be exercised.

  • AJ

    So this will put Russia in the same bracket as Iran & I assume all the sanctions that go with that designation.

  • Mario Ceva

    Rusia has to declare USA sponsor of terrorism. And are telling the truth

    • Ivan Freely

      The entire World needs to make such declarations; not just Russia.

      • d’Artagnan

        Iran already did in 1979. US is the world’s prime terrorist sponsor.

  • verner

    ain’t russia already under all kind of sanctions but I guess this means that other nations can’t do business with the ruskies, or… not likely that the EU would be able to align itself with such a decree from washington dc. and not China, and not the Philipines and not India and not and not …..

  • chris chuba

    So Ukraine is in good standing even though some neo-nazis have been arrested both in the U.S. and Italy who were from western Ukraine but the people in Donbas are terrorists even though they have never left their tiny enclave.

    The U.S. Senate is the most deranged group of people on the planet, that is where McCain was produced.

    • Tony B.

      Not where McCain was “produced,” as you put it. But the whole of the U.S. federal government, congress especially, is now Israeli/Rothschild owned and does the bidding of the insane talmudists always.

  • Andrei

    Unbelievable, USA Government are the main supporters ,financiers and creators of terrorism we all know this including American people.
    They think we are stupid…
    Or they are stupid.. if Us Senate will do this ..not only that relations between Russia and America will be devastating..
    More and more countries will come together and they will create an alliance that will destroy any hope that wont be a hot war between super powers…
    The elite of the world are the main enemies of humanity,…

    • FlorianGeyer

      The US and NATO are the main enemies of humanity today.

      • Tony B.

        Both totally owned at the government level by the Rothschild cabal in its “City of London.” And by its other agent, Israhell.

  • If this bill has the unintended consequence of distancing- and thus protecting – Russia from the Globohomo virus, I’m all for it. At least until the time that Globohomo runs it’s terminal course, or it’s eliminated from within.

    this is predicted–the USA is a morally rotten, economically desperate nation of shallow, soulless automatons—another desperate act of a collapsing empire…predicted to collapse in less than 10 years–Galtung, Jameson, Orlov, etc

    pffffffft, really.

    Seriously??? Here we have the REAL state sponsor of “terrorism’, aka the US itself, trying to label Russia which is not associated with any US/Israel run “terrorist” groups at all, with this fraud of being a “state sponsor” of terrorism??

    Honestly, what has the world become when true evil abounds, and it is right at home in the formerly free United States?

    • verner

      naked and abject desperation in washington dc – grabbing at straws while the world laughs (remember the nato meeting in london when trump left in a huff and a puff)

      • Jake321

        They laughed at Trump, NOT the US. Islamist Iran is not laughing as the US bankrupts them and blows them up with impunity in Syria.

  • d’Artagnan

    It is no great secret that the Jews and WASPS have totally turned on Russia as with Putin and his likely successors like Shoigu they see no hope of ever controlling Russia and its immense wealth. Russian perceptions of Zionist evil are also hardening as Russia builds strong alliances with China and Iran. The recent juvenile attempt to ban Russia from the Olympics will only strengthen Russian resolve not to cave in to bullying and backstabbing. It is time Russia take the gloves off and start really arming Iran and other allies. Even since the breakup of the USSR, Russia has never been in a more respected and stronger position as the NATO poodles and Zionists unravel.

    • Jake321

      And the US will do the same to Russia as they are doing so effectively to Islamist Iran. Russia will go bankrupt or the Russian people will have to live like those in North Korea. And China? All the US has to do is say China can have first dibs on Siberia if they join the US in doing in Putz Putin and his RF economically. Bye bye the RF. Say hello to the thankfully dead Russian Soviet Union in the dustbin of history. YEH!

    • cechas vodobenikov

      of course Russia, china, Iran, etc r becoming stronger, economically, educationally, culturally and militarily–ulike the USA which is declining in all spheres of development….the US is now too impotent to influence the power and development of Russia, china etc—-they cannot even obtain cooperation from allies to thwart, Nordstream 2, scheduled to be complete in 6 mos…..Turkstream will now proceed through Bulgaria (more US impotence) and the the huge pipeline from Siberia to China is now flowing…of course nobody wishes to purchase US oil/gas.

  • Davki

    Oh, haha – this is becoming more and more of an absurd travesty. They accuse everyone else of doing what they do themselves. Oh, and for those with a short memory, we’re not only talking about the recent MIddle East here… we’re talking Afghanistan, South America (Nicaragua death squads, aka ‘contras’, Cambodia, etc. etc.

    • Jake321

      Matters not. The US can bankrupt Russia but Russia can’t do a thing about it.

    • cechas vodobenikov

      poor little Jerky….perhaps a poorly paid CIA idiot…US sanctions have strengthen Russia—near zero foreign debt, while US debt is 23 trillion USD…US is impotent …of course, only a rotting desperate empire near collapse resorts to such desperation….

  • Jake321

    And this is with a Putz Putin loving lackey in the White House! When Trump is gone, there will be an all out bipartisan effort to bankrupt the Residual RF and deep six the Putz.

  • cechas vodobenikov

    fake empty threats—amerikans r too cowardly to designate a powerful nation such as Russia, China, etc as terrorist—if the did they would be required to ACT! amerikans do not act, they whine, complain and threaten, but do nothing!!!…as Mao observed, the US is a “paper tiger”…so impotent they cannot create a successful coup in Nicaragua, Cuba, Cambodia or Venezuela….an indebted nation of obese, uneducated, shallow, substance dependent automatons
