US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is the representative of the US Deep State, which is determined to go to war with Russia, says E. Michael Jones, a political analyst in Indiana.
Jones, a writer, former professor, media commentator and the current editor of the Culture Wars magazine, made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Saturday.
US President Donald Trump has reportedly invited Russian President Vladimir Putin during a phone conversation for a meeting at the White House.
“On the surface, it seems a kind of paradoxical because it looks as if we are engaged in Cold War II, and Russia is the enemy. However, appearances are deceiving here,” Jones said.
“If we take a step back I think the invitation is perfectly consistent with the events of the past month,” he added.
“OK, what am I talking about? Two weeks ago President Trump announced that he was going to withdraw troops from Syria. This immediately created a huge reaction in the Deep State, which then launched this false flag gas attack in Douma. Nikki Haley, the representative of the Deep State, used it at an occasion at the United Nations to demand action against Russia,” he continued.
“At this point, Trump felt that he had to bow to public pressure and launched a missile attack, blew up three buildings in Syria,” he stated.
“What has come out since that time is a report from Sergey Lavrov that the United States coordinated this attack with Russia. In other words, it was all just a political theater,” the analyst noted.
“This means then that at the heart of this American foreign policy, you have this contradiction. You Trump’s desire expressed in the election campaign that he wanted to make peace with Syria. And you have the Deep State’s determination to go to war with Russia,” he said.
“So what we have here is a constant back-and-forth between Trump’s original intentions, namely peace with Russia and agreement with Russia, and the Deep State’s attempt to overturn those intentions and go to war,” the commentator concluded.
