The US expels 60 Russian diplomats, followed by Europe

President Donald Trump ordered the expulsion of 60 Russian diplomats from the US and the shutdown of the Russian consulate in Seattle, in response to UK prime minister Theresa May’s appeal for international backing against the nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy and his daughter in Salisbury. Poland, France and Germany, each ordered 4 Russian diplomats to leave their capitals and Latvia, one. Canada and Ukraine also came on board. The Russian ambassador to the US responded: “Washington has destroyed what little is left of relations with Russia.”

    I think that this is childish. Breaking communication means war. Surely, there must have been other ways to show discontentment.

    Ago a cave man wrote madness onto parchment that survives in the minds of mad modern cavemen to be recited like their monkey ancestors. What no end times prophecies from the cave men?

      “Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it” (Tehillah 127)

      A voice is saying, ‘Call,’ And he said, ‘What do I call?’ All flesh is grass, and all its goodliness is As a flower of the field:

      Withered hath grass, faded the flower, For the Spirit of Jehovah blew upon it, Surely the people is grass;

      Withered hath grass, faded the flower, But a word of our God riseth for ever.

      Kefa Alef

      1:21 ../.believe in Eloah, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him tifereth; that your emunah and tikvah might be in Eloah.

      1:22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Ruach unto unfeigned love of the brethren, [see that ye] ahav one another with a pure lev fervently:

      1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the dvar of Eloah, which liveth and abideth le Olam Va ed.

      1:24 For all flesh [is] as grass, and all the tifereth of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:

      1:25 But the dvar of YHWH endureth le Olam Va ed. And this is the dvar which by the goodnews is proclaimed unto you.

      Malachi – Chapter 3

      And they shall be Mine, says the Lord of Hosts, for that day when I make a treasure. And I will have compassion on them as a man has compassion on his son who serves him.

      And you shall return and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him who serves God and him who has not served Him.

      For lo, the sun comes, glowing like a furnace, and all the audacious sinners and all the perpetrators of wickedness will be stubble. And the sun that comes shall burn them up so that it will leave them neither root nor branch, says the Lord of Hosts.

      And the sun of mercy shall rise with healing in its wings for you who fear My Name. Then will you go forth and be fat as fatted calves.

    Yes,looks like they want a war.Why?Because of the DEBT.Nobody has money,its all CREDIT!
    But the only NATO armys who have enough people and power are USA,Turkey,perhaps Britain and France.

    Why a war?Just cut the money of the 10000 richest familys and all is ok.Also if USA think the Europeans are going to war against Russia i must laugh.Only 10% are ready to fight in an INVADER come.But thats are saying.So you can think 5% are real.But Invade another country?Hahaha!Nobody sees Russia as a danger.Nobody wants to die.

    Expelling these equivalent of modern-day Cossack after their having planned state-sanctioned murder in a foreign land is the very least assertive thing we can do.

    Putin only understands naked force and until the West shows the resolve to stand up to Russia’s uber-aggression, Putin will continue taking all that he is permitted.

    It’s a shame the UN won’t also expel the Russian delegation, since Russia’s action violate every single precept in the UN Charter. Putin has been on an absolute rampage ever since his South Ossetia gambit won and we might as well accept that it will come to blows with him sooner or later.

    Skulking around in the pantry, wringing our hands and wailing “Can’t we all just get along” will get you absolutely NO WHERE with this ex-KGB murderer.

      Russia’s “uber-aggression” is like a tiger in an open field, while Western manipulation is more like a snake in tall grass. Which one is worse?

      And by the way, Russia is nowhere near as aggressive as the US.

      Who have the Russians invaded? you could make a vague case for Crimea, but even that would not hold water. The USA on the other hand has a much richer warmongering history, all the way to modern day famous WMD in Iraq, Libya and Syria…

    The Germans should be quiet here as they should thank the russians for their reunification. But Germany is still not a souvereign country which is good. As at least the US have some power here (last of the 4 forces that did not withdrew).
