Retired Lt. Gen. Yevgeny Buzhinsky told the BBC that for its part, Russia sees the West as the belligerent party, citing sanctions against Russia as well as thebanning of the Russian Paralympic from the Rio games for well-documented and state-sponsored doping as Western aggression against Russia.

"Of course there is a reaction. As far as Russia sees it, as Putin sees it, it is full-scale confrontation on all fronts. If you want a confrontation, you'll get one. But it won't be a confrontation that doesn't harm the interests of the United States. You want a confrontation, you'll get one everywhere," said Buzhinsky.

Russia seems to believe they're backed into a corner. Their opinion is the only one that matters here in some ways.

"A full-scale confrontation on all fronts." It sounds to me like there could be a lot more going on than we know. It's hard to fathom how serious those words are in my opinion.

If you don't find the article above to be disturbing, I can hardly imagine what it would take.

How much of it is rhetoric and how much of it is the truth?

Is the games such a big event? Or can it be something else that they are not wanting to let out. Much of the rhetoric that is being sent out, by officers and others in a leadership position is very much echo's of the past when Russia was the USSR and this was never surprising or shocking as it is now.

so you think Russia is the de-stabilizer and instigator or the US, or you think 'both sides' are equally to blame for the current tension...

i think i can guess your answer, but i could be wrong (.2% chance)

Look, the Obama/Clinton/Kerry foreign policy is a unmitigated disaster. From Russian relations to the mid east quagmire. An utter failure. Lead from behind has failed.

Are you taking the words out of context of everything else that's going on? Please see the list of things Russia has done recently in the article linked to in the original post.

When a mortal acknowledges that their meat-suit is dying anyway, whether it dies of old age or adjacent to a nuke; absolutely nothing disturbs a spirit who accepts the Blood of Jesus Christ as its Savior from this hell-hole of a planet anyway.

Bring it on, the sooner the better.

November 26th 2016 is probably the day of chaos anyway as it will be 5555 (Death & Change) days after Sept 11 2001.

He is a retired general. Nothing official.

My guess, the confrontation will be cyber and economic. Our government will act as if it isn't happening and hide the evidence of what's really going on.

Funny because the anti-Russian lobbyists are working overtime here in the west and this feeds into their agenda perfectly.

Here in the U.K the rhetoric has been ramped up calling for all parties to work together in agreeing an aggressive stance against Russia, regardless of personal beliefs.

Boris Johnson has called on people to protest outside of the Russian Embassy. Nice bit of diplomacy, what?

Let's call for the same outside of the Saudi Embassy and Israeli Embassy.

I'm always pro-US.

But these sanctions and other actions by the US and its allies have gone far enough.

Besides I'd like Kalashnikov Group to open up shop in the US so we can buy the AK 12 and other rifles they've been designing over the last 5 years.

Well what about this miracle?

Russia and Turkey sign gas deal, seek common ground on Syria as ties warm





Russia is making power moves while Obama sits on the bench. That's his foreign policy strategy.

Yevgeny Buzhinsky has been saber rattling and threatening the US since Bush. He was actually active back then, now he is retired and even less relevant.

Doesn't mean we shouldn't listen to him, I think the US needs to spend more time building bridges with Russia than the tit for tat exchanges. Different governments need to respect one another.

Retired Lt. Gen. Yevgeny Buzhinsky said that not Russia , he may have his finger on the pulse but he doesn't speak for the government.

Russia has ran it's mouth non stop for the last 2 weeks. Clearly they are scared, and need to talk tough to seem bigger. It's a good tactic until it's time to put up or shut up. If they were going to do anything they would have when 66 syrian soldiers were bombed. It's easy to say we'll shoot American planes out of the sky, until they realize they can't lock on an F-22.

in britain, the conservatives want to look into war crimes committed by russia in aleppo.
i know many here have a man crush on putin, however bombing hospitals out is generally frowned upon in the real world.

I wonder if Trump approves of this message?

Scary times I hope cooler heads prevail!

Why would Russia want a real confrontation with the US? They're struggling financially. They're military is very stretched right now, helping Asaad, and, it's far inferior to the US. Provoking the US would make no sense for Russia. Talking about provoking the US might serve their purposes at home. But saber rattling is typically for political shows.
