At a press briefing last week with International Olympic Committee spokesman Mark Adams, there was stern talk about a country of cheaters so shot through with a gold-at-all-costs mentality that they countenanced the systematic exploitation of Olympic athletes.
The odious politicization of the Olympics by Washington with regard to Russia and Korea is an eye-opener of American destructive designs. Washington doesn’t just want to snuff out the Olympic torch. It wants to torch the entire region.
Considering that a nuclear conflict over North Korea appeared imminent in recent weeks, the winter Olympics at Pyeongchang, South Korea, is a most welcome distraction – and might even deter a major war on the peninsula.
The ethically flawed antics of the International Olympic Committee, the World Anti-Doping Agency and Western mass media at large, highlight a predominating anti-Russian bias that have a definite bigoted aspect.
