Classified information

Jone Dakuvula, Suva

I watched CNN news recently and was shocked by the report that the Intelligence Agencies of US Government had alleged that President Donald Trump had revealed classified information at his meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov relating to the plans of ISIS Terrorist groups.

This is the first time I have heard that intelligence agencies that are supposed to serve and be loyal to the President, accuse their Commander in Chief of revealing secrets to the Senior Minister of another government.

The spokesman for President Trump said that the President had a discretion to give information to another Government if he thinks it serves a common purpose that each is pursuing.

In this case, the destruction of ISIS. The latest development says Israel Intelligence is responsible for the accusation against President Trump. Does this mean that MOSSAD had bugs in President Trump’s office? This is bizarre.

Although, I am not an admirer of President Trump, I believe President Trump had every right to use the information he had in a way that promotes the interest of the United States in fighting terrorists group in the Middle East. The Russians want co-operation in the fight against terrorists.

For some time, it has been clear that some disloyal civil servants in the US government system have disagreed with President Trump election promise to work with Russia in fighting terrorism and ending the wars in the Arab countries.

They have campaigned with the major corporate media companies like CNN, to revive the Cold war with the Russia demon and to heighten the conflict between USA and its Western allies against Russia and China.

It seems obvious to me that the campaign by powerful political forces on both sides of Politics (Democrats and Republican) to undermine President Trump is headed towards possible impeachment of President Trump for unproven allegations that his campaign team colluded with Russian Intelligence agencies in the Presidential contest in November last year that resulted in the defeat of Mrs Hilary Clinton.

What is more disturbing is that this political development in the US, is related to the heightened tension between the United States and its allies on one side and Russia and China on the other.

There, are information on some US electronic news websites that report statements by the armed forces commanders in Russia and China that they are expecting a surprise nuclear missile from the US against China and Russia first before they can respond. So, the armed forces in Russian and China are likely to fire off their nuclear arsenals at any time they are convinced that the USA is about to attack them.

Most of the world do not know the danger of a nuclear war breaking out is closer now than it was even during the Cold War Years of confrontation in the 1950s to 70s.

We ordinary people do not know because the major Western media are not reporting the “real news” that circulate only in some reliable electronic news media. It seems the USA is now ruled by mad men in the Pentagon, the CIA and the National Security Agencies who believe nuclear war is “winnable”.

President Trump, on some issues like climate change is mad, but his enemies who are supposed to serve him, are also mad with their opposition to Russia and China and plan for heightened conflict.
