NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen is a US puppet paid to trigger a war against Russia by spreading lies over the crisis in Ukraine, says an analyst.
“Rasmussen is nothing but a paid puppet doing Washington’s bidding,” Finian Cunningham wrote in a column for Press TV website in reaction to Rasmussen’s recent threats of action against Russia following Crimea’s secession from Ukraine.
“His job is not to protect Europe, as the NATO literature claims. His job is to incite insecurity and, if need be, an all-out war, in order to serve Washington’s agenda of keeping Europe and Russia divided,” Cunningham wrote.
He said Rasmussen has been “telling lies” in a bid to “incite war in Europe with Russia” in the hope of pleasing the United States.
“Such is the busy life of a puppet on a string, bouncing in step with the tune called by his master. From here on, Rasmussen should be re-branded as the ‘Fogh of War’,” wrote Cunningham.
The analyst added that the Ukraine crisis resulted from the US-EU coup in that country in February.
“That coup brought a rag-tag fascist junta to power, which has openly threatened ethnic Russians mainly in the east of Ukraine,” he wrote.
“And thanks to European puppets like Rasmussen, the rest of Europe is now being forced into a contrived conflict with Moscow,” said Cunningham.
Tensions have been rising between Moscow and the West over Ukraine in recent weeks with Western governments stepping up pressure on Russia.
