July 29, 2017 | Russian Sanctions – The Start of World War III?

Martin Armstrong

Martin Arthur Armstrong is the former chairman of Princeton Economics International Ltd. He is best known for his economic predictions based on the Economic Confidence Model, which he developed.

The Russian sanctions being pushed by Congress demonstrates the most unprofessional comprehension of how to manage an economy I have ever seen. These sanctions are effectively economic war and will find that Europe will be forced to side with Russia.

This is all because of the press like CNN. To get ratings they are indeed laying the seeds of war driving the polls to 70% of Americans see Russia as an enemy when in fact the USA interferes in foreign elections all the time. CNN, New York Times, and the Washington Post will be responsible for creating World War III just as Pulitzer and Hearst were responsible for creating the Spanish-American war over fake news. The Fairness Doctrine needs to be restored ASAP and applied to newspapers as well as radio and TV.

    – The sanctions against Russia are part of the struggle between the socalled “Deep State” and Trump. And it seems the “Deep State” is winning, and Trump is losing. And CNN is merely one of those pawns in that “struggle”/on that (political) chessboard.
    – I have a slightly different view. US sanctions do increase the tensions between each of the 3 parties in this conflict (Europe, US and Russia). And I do think that Europe has to make up its mind in the (near) future. Europe Will be FORCED to make a decision what’s in it’s best interest. And the US “pushing around” Europe won’t help to improve the relationship between the US and Europe.
