Letter from a simple American: “We are going to war with Russia, but the people of the United States are silent”

On the eve of a possible aggravation of the situation on the Russian-Ukrainian border and the involvement of Russia and NATO in a major war, many policy, and ordinary citizens call on countries to step back from the dangerous edge and not plunge the world into a nuclear apocalypse. The Herald-Times newspaper published a letter from a simple resident of the United States on this subject.

We present it in its entirety.

According to a recent poll by the Gallup Organization, people on the planet understand that the greatest danger to the world comes from the United States, and not from Pakistan, China, North Korea, Iran or Israel.

US military operations in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan cost the US budget huge sums and caused the death of a large number of civilians. Now we regret having started these wars, but this would not have happened if we understood the true state of affairs that America faced.

Now the US is going to go to war with Russia, which is a much stronger adversary than all the previous ones. At the same time, the use of nuclear weapons cannot be ruled out. Those who treat this superficially have forgotten the history of the world, during which the planet several times found itself on the very brink of a nuclear catastrophe.

In this case, the point of view of Russia deserves attention. During perestroika in the late 80s and beyond, Russians saw waves of NATO expansion to the east. At the same time, we remember how the United States reacted to the deployment of nuclear missiles within 70 km of our borders. In this case, can Moscow be blamed for being concerned about its own security? The Russian Federation demanded NATO guarantees that Ukraine would not become a member of the alliance. However, Washington emphasizes that this issue is non-negotiable.

The world is now on the brink of destruction. But why do the people of America, who supposedly want world peace, not express their opinion and remain silent?

    I understand. The second hot phase of World War III has almost begun. I send my army to the EU to fight in Europe with us. They send soldiers, tanks and so on. They hope for the last chance and with their troops they will push the beginning of the hot phase of the war in Europe. Again, they are going to sit out across the ocean until there is messilovo in Europe ...

    The answer is simple.
    The representations of the representatives of the "chosen nation", as well as of this "average American", do not correspond to reality.
    They do not want world peace at all. They want peace in their pocket. Even if what does not enter there, they will have to destroy.

    I must tell you that we do not want to conquer any Cosmos at all. We want to expand the Earth to its limits. We do not know what to do with other worlds. We don't need other worlds. We need a mirror... We are struggling with the contact and will never find it. We are in the foolish position of a man rushing towards a goal he is afraid of, which he does not need. Human needs human! (c) Solaris
    Instead of "space" substitute the Earth, instead of the US land, well, or any other country with imperial ambitions.

    There are a lot of tales on the net. Incl. videos where the Kremlin superimposed completely different texts in Russian on well-known videos. One of these was sent to me yesterday by a friend. I doubted the authenticity of the translation. Found the original on YouTube. There, the entire dialogue is completely changed.
    If someone tries to publish the so-called. "original" letter, why not add the original too. There are people here who are fluent in English, Arabic, Chinese, etc.

    John - "wife, daughter, husband of an officer." Fine. They write in all languages, even in Chinese.
