Our Enemy

I recently heard an official denouncing Russia as our “Enemy”.

When and how did that happen?

I thought the cold war was over with the collapse of the Soviet Union.

“Russia threatens no U.S. vital interest” Pat Buchanan

Could this provide the answer:

“In order to rally people, governments need enemies. They want us to be afraid, to hate, so we will rally behind them. Andif they do not have a real enemy, they will invent one in order to mobilize us”
 Thich Nhat Hanh


Or this:

Unhealedpain creates a ‘victim’ mentality, in which we are constantly searching for an
external enemy to blast with our repressed rage. We project this rage onto a
convenient, easy target. If we haven’t forgiven and accepted ourselves, and
those who hurt us, and stepped into a true knowing of our own value, we will
keep seeking revenge over and over again. DavidWilcock

    “…At this moment, for example, in 1984 (if it was 1984), Oceania was at war with Eurasia and in alliance with Eastasia. In no public or private utterance was it ever admitted that the three powers had at any time been grouped along different lines. Actually, as Winston well knew, it was only four years since Oceania had been at war with Eastasia and in alliance with Eurasia. But that was merely a piece of furtive knowledge which he happened to possess because his memory was not satisfactorily under control. Officially the change of partners had never happened. Oceania was at war with Eurasia: therefore Oceania had always been at war with Eurasia. The enemy of the moment always represented absolute evil, and it followed that any past or future agreement with him was impossible.”
