There is a “neocon effort to go after Russia because Russia did not support the war for Israel agenda against Israel’s enemies,” said James Morris, an editor for America-hijacked.com, an anti-Zionist blog.
“So the neocons would like to weaken Russia and that’s what we see happening in Ukraine,” Morris told Press TV on Monday.
“It’s a very dangerous situation” because the crisis in Ukraine could cause another world war, he added. “The neocons…. have been encouraging what’s been happening in Ukraine.”
