What Are Motives Behind Alleging Russia Of Hacking US Election? – OpEd


In one of my recent articles, I stated that elections are engineered in third world countries, but in the US elections are engineered in an organized manner. After the victory of Donald Trump a debate has started in the US that Russia has hacked the election.

Accepting all my inadequacies, the following points come to my mind. I request my readers, especially the think tanks from the United States and those in power in Russia to help the world in understanding the purpose behind this propaganda.

My first question is, has Russia attained power to rig the elections of a country that has defeated the USSR in Afghanistan, which led to disintegration of the then second largest super power?

My second question, what is the motive behind this propaganda?

My third question, what are the motives behind maligning Russia or CIA and NSA?

My fourth question, why the movement to attempt to deny entry of Donald Trump in the White House?

My fifth question, who is the bigger war monger, Donald Trump, or the mighty CIA, NSA and Pentagon?

My sixth question, is the media in the US also subservient to military might?

As I have accepted earlier my inadequacies, kindly have some patience to read my replies also.

My explanation to the first question is that there is a clear motive behind accusing Russia, and the killing two birds with the same stone. While the effort is aimed at maligning Russia, it is also exposing the failures of the CIA and the NSA. I will abstain from raising a finger at Russia, but tend to agree with those who have been saying that CIA/NSA and Pentagon have been acting on false information, the worst being the presence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

The reply to my second question may sound outrageous, but I could not resist from saying it. Despite all the propaganda against Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton lost the election. This is a defeat of those who could be termed non-state actors. Maybe they believe that establishing a link between Donald Trump and Russia could stop his entry into the White House.

The reply to the third question is that lately Russia has defeated the US on various fronts, specifically in Syria. This has happened despite the best efforts and tall claims of the CIA and the NSA. Those believing in maintaining the status quo are not ready to accept their defeat. However, while accusing Russia they forget that they are also accepting failure of their intelligence agencies.

In my view, they are accepting the supremacy of Russia to seek more funds for the CIA and the NSA for their capacity building to open new war fronts around the globe, such as the next front in the South China Sea.

The possible explanation of the fourth question is the apprehension that Donald Trump’s cordial relationship with Russia may lead to a withdrawal of support for ISIS and the closing of the front in Syria. This is being taken as a victory of Iran.

Ironically, US military might, intelligence and ‘embedded journalists’, who have been counting the days of Syrian President are not ready to accept their defeat.

To find a reply to the fifth question readers should read my latest article, US War Mania. Over the years I have been saying that the US is the biggest arms supplier and to increase the sale of arms it has to create new rebel groups, provide them funds and training to sell arms to the incumbent governments of these countries.

Contrary to the impression created by the dishonest western media, I have a feeling that Donald Trump wishes to focus more on domestic issues, spend more funds on the creation and improvisation of infrastructure for the benefit of masses, rather than spending billions of dollars of taxpayers’ money on proxy wars. This policy of Donald Trump is not approved by war mongers and owners of the armament factories of the US.

The lesson of the story is that the US citizens are so engrossed in ‘other’ activities that they even don’t have time to question why taxpayers’ money is being spent on wars ,rather than on millions of US citizens still living below the poverty line. Groups that have a vested interest have been preaching a ‘change of regime’ in countries around the world must also do the same at home.
