As passed Interfax, St. Louis police shot dead a man with a knife. The murder occurred during the ongoing protests in Ferguson (a suburb of St. Louis).
Sam Dotson, who heads the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, confirmed the death at a press conference. According to him, the man who was shot dead threatened with a police knife.
It is also reported that law enforcement officials were not injured.
The riots in Missouri gave reason to American satirists, prone to black humor, to ridicule the double standards of the government and their complete inability to peacefully resolve the conflict that broke out August 9 in Ferguson.
According to one of the fantastic scenarios of the future, the conflict can go beyond the state. Against the background of the upcoming military coup in Missouri, Comrade Lavrov will make a special statement in the UN Security Council, and Beijing will decide to arm some "moderate forces" in the US. In addition, the situation in Missouri will attract the attention of Al-Qaida, which has its own interests there. Well, and then there will be a Russian invasion ...
In the material on the portal "Vox" Soshir Joshua Keating's satirical point of view on the unrest in Ferguson is cited. After all, the American media would have covered the events in the town quite differently, were Ferguson, for example, in Iraq or Pakistan.
However, note that Joshua Keating chose to keep the town in the United States. He fantastically changed something else: he made a non-typical attitude to the events in Ferguson of the international community. Simply put, he allowed something that could not be, because today almost the entire “developed” world is dancing to the tune of Washington.
The "report" states that "Chinese and Russian officials are warning of a possible humanitarian crisis in the troubled US state of Missouri." In the city of Ferguson, tensions "escalated into full-scale violence."
“We must use all the means at our disposal to put an end to violence and restore calm in the region,” the journalist quoted the “statement” by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, allegedly made in the commentary after a meeting of the UN Security Council on an emergency US state of Missouri.
The analyst recalls that the humanitarian crisis in Ferguson was caused by the actions of the American security forces, who brutally massacred participants in peaceful protests.
The United States, the author continues, in recent years has been agitated by a wave of political instability and protests. Analysts warned that unrest could create "fertile ground for extremists."
Far from Washington, the state of Missouri is led by a "charismatic but unbalanced official named Jay Nixon." This man, the journalist continues, was unable to successfully resolve the conflict: he not only failed to cope with the situation, but also refused to mediate from the federal authorities.
Further, Keating introduces another factor of instability in the town: according to his idea, the matter is complicated by the fact that even President Obama, in fact, supports the minority in Ferguson, since the overwhelming majority of “white people” are in charge there.
Then absolutely fantastic motifs are woven into the material of the journalist.
He writes that analysts who study the "non-transparent American political system in which all provinces are given semi-autonomous self-government" warn that Mr. Nixon can take advantage of this situation to organize a protest in Ferguson against "weakened municipal authorities."
The legislature of Missouri, according to journalists, is the traditional “Shura Council”, in which “opposition factions predominate”.
True, few people believe in the reality of the military coup, and it is still not known how the Nixon allies in Washington will react to the crisis if it continues.
As for the international arena, the leaders of the leading states say that they fear the spread of the crisis.
According to Xi Jinping, who spoke at his country house in Hainan Province, American society should find a language of reconciliation. Also, as part of a long-term solution, the security of the state of Missouri should be strengthened.
As for China’s reaction, Xi Jinping said that Beijing “can and should support moderate forces that can bring stability to America. Thus, we will continue to implement a broader strategy that will help the Americans overcome this crisis. ”
From these comments, the journalist writes, it became clear that China plans to arm the moderate factions in Missouri, thereby curbing the “lascivious regime” and preventing the “rooting of extremism”.
The military "advisers" of the Kurdish Peshmerga have already visited the turbulent American region. Their task was to promote security.
Sales weapons in the United States since the beginning of the crisis reached its maximum.
Analysts warn, the journalist fantasizes that violence can spread to oil-producing regions (Oklahoma). Moreover, the crisis may adversely affect the supply of American beer, as well as provide fertile ground for extremists. Although it is not yet known whether al-Qaida was entrenched in the state of Missouri, but its leaders have previously hinted at some "assets" there.
The Chinese Embassy in the US officially refuses to comment on the tense situation in Missouri, but urges all parties to show restraint and respect for the rule of law.
As for Moscow, the journalist fantasizes, then local military strategists, according to some reports, are preparing for a possible military intervention in the United States, assuming that political instability may threaten even the oil-producing state of Texas.
Now it becomes clear, add to this, why in the United States there is a collection of signatures for the country's entry into the Russian Federation. The US joining Russia will begin in Alaska, and Vladimir Putin will head the new superstate. The criminal and corrupt oligarchic regime of Obama will be over.
