US on Russia Talks: ‘The Drumbeat of War is Sounding Loud’

U.S. Ambassador Michael Carpenter said that the West should prepare for a possible escalation in tensions with Russia.

“The drumbeat of war is sounding loud, and the rhetoric has gotten rather shrill,” Carpenter told reporters after talks with Russia in Vienna.

According to a report from Reuters: “Russia said dialogue was continuing but was hitting a dead end as it tried to persuade the West to bar Ukraine from joining NATO and roll back decades of alliance expansion in Europe – demands that the United States has called ‘non-starters.'”

Russian Ambassador Alexander Lukashevich warned of “catastrophic consequences” if the two sides weren’t able to reach an agreement but said Moscow hadn’t given up on diplomacy.

“The jury’s out on which path Vladimir Putin is going to choose. Is he going to choose the path of diplomacy and dialogue to resolve some of these problems or is he going to pursue confrontation and aggression?” Secretary of State Antony Blinken told MSNBC.

“Russia is a peace-loving country. But we do not need peace at any cost,” Lukashevich told the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).

“As we prepare for an open dialogue on how to strengthen security for the benefit of all, we must decisively reject blackmail and never allow aggression and threats to be rewarded,” Carpenter told the OSCE.

Russia criticized a bill unveiled by Senate Democrats this week to impose sanctions on President Vladimir Putin and other top Kremlin officials if Russia attacks Ukraine.

Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for the Kremlin, said sanctioning Putin would be equivalent to severing relations.

“We view the appearance of such documents and statements extremely negatively against the background of an ongoing series of negotiations, albeit unsuccessful ones,” Peskov said.

    Perhaps the question should have been: “Is the USA a peace loving country?”
    Let’s just remember that Russia didn’t spend $5 Billions to cause political instability and a coup d’etat in Ukraine! The US did!
    Did Russia do a similar thing on the US border with Mexico or Canada? Of course not!
    Those who answered “yes” to your poll obviously get their opinions from the corrupt MSM.

      ^ from the article. That’s probably why the poll question is worded that way…

      What are you trying to say? Are you suggesting Russia wants Ukraine or are you suggesting Ukraine wants Russia? Russia lost Ukraine who wants to join Nato ( a useless bunch) however it gives the idea of protection. Biden gave back Putin’s oil line which had reduced Russia’s finances which Trump had stopped, so frankly in real terms what is your position? Do you support Russia attacking? Russia has wanted to retain Ukraine since it broke away the people of Ukraine do not want Russia returning, so which side will you support?

  2. Nick Newton says:

    yes it seems the old story when Countries want to expand; They all say they want PEACE, but what they really mean is they want a peace of the land they want peace with! The Democrats want a war (they make billions) and Trump stopped the wars to the very annoyance of Democratic leaders (not Biden the imposter) Now they have a chance showing Biden is to weak to make any decision. Putin got his oil pipeline (thanks to Biden) and I feel they think they can do anything, however it may depend who has the most power in that useless organization NATO ! Will they defend or watch?

    The Deep State Neo-Cons that supported the 2004 ‘Orange Revolution’ in Ukraine are doing this.

  4. Xtech says:

    Our government is just as CORRUPT as the Russian government! The Deep State Military Industrial Complex is all about increasing their wealth at any means.

  5. CharlieSeattle says:

    The race is on!

    The Deep State Neo-Cons want to create a False Flag event …BEFORE the 2024 Summer Olympics on July 26, 2022 to make the Russians Ukrainian invasion plans look bad.

    The Russians want to create a False Flag Ukrainian invasion event …AFTER the 2024 Summer Olympics like they did before!
