The United States has a wide array of instruments at its disposal. The Austrian magazine named assigning false credit ratings as a prime example.
“Russia’s fundamentals are the best in the world. Not a single (big) state has better fundamentals than Russia. However, Fitch downgraded it to a 3B rating – just above junk level. The US has the worst fundamentals in the world. But the same rating agency has given it AAA, the best rating possible. It remains a mystery how the rating agency counts that,” the publication said.
The media outlet compared the US to a terrorist state that disregards general code of conduct and acts upon its whims and wishes, forcing other countries to participate. Moreover, Washington threatens any country that has chosen to act independently with war and sanctions.
US actions should be brought to the attention of the United Nations, the Austrian Contra magazine said.
