The US military lobby would prefer to lose $500 billion than to stop military assistance to Ukraine or lift sanctions against Russia.
The US military lobby is ready to allow the country to lose $500 billion, providing a military assistance to Ukraine, managing Editor of the Veterans Today online journal, Jim W. Dean, reported.
According to Dean, Donald Trump’s statements on the situation in Ukraine and the secession of Crimea frightened American congressmen so much that, recently, they have registered a bill according to which Donald Trump, if he becomes a president, and even next US presidents will not have a right to stop the military assistance to Ukraine or lift sanctions against Russia, as long as Crimea remains its part.
As Dean said, the main lobby of the bill is a military-industrial complex. But the most interesting thing is that if the bill is adopted, Americans will suffer more than anyone else. In this case, ExxonMobil will not be able to implement a $500 billion deal with Rosneft for development of the Russian Arctic and its innumerable reserves of ‘black gold’.
“This is the example of anti-Russian sanctions doing more damage to Western corporations than to Russia,” the American journalist concluded.
