Advanced Putinology (Westerners REALLY don’t know Putin!)

MORE Putinology (Westerners really don’t know this guy!)

by Don Hank

I recently sent the following commentary and link to a Sergey Lavrov speech to a small reader group:

The anti-Russian hysteria is so thick these days that even Russophiles are laying low. They’re waiting for the Trump administration to end so that they don’t have to join in the chorus of anti-Russian jeers just to prove they aren’t helping Putin hack their neighbor’s phone.

I have not seen any signs of sanity in the West for a while, but Russia is still behaving like the only adult in the room. Recently foreign minister Sergei Lavrov gave a speech which, if you are looking for signs of rational thinking on planet earth, is here for you to contemplate:

http://russia-insider.com/en/incredible-speech-lavrov-says-new-centers-economic-power-will-end-us-global-domination/ri19331

It is a bit longish so if you’re short on time, here are the highlights:

Paragraph 4 dicusses how Russophobes have long attacked Russia for “expansionism.” But here Lavrov discusses the addition of Siberia to the Russian empire and, without bluntly stating it, he is alluding to the way the Russians accepted the different cultures in that region, in contradistinction to the brutality of the Americans who treated their native peoples as if they were lower than animals, slaughtering them when they saw fit or forcing them onto reservations.

In about Par. 15, he mentions Kissinger and how he takes into account the cultural and historical factors in relations with other nations, while others in our State Department simply rely on fire power to persuade nations to come over to our side or else. This is certainly why Putin has maintained a cordial relationship with Kissinger all these years. Many Americans tend to dismiss Kissinger as simply another NWO stooge. We simply don’t like details and nuances and are paying dearly for our lack of attention to detail.

Par. 22 or thereabouts:

The historical, geopolitical, moral foundations that shape the foreign policy of Russia are solid and constant. They set the tone of our day-to-day diplomatic efforts which, in keeping with the Constitution, are guided directly by the President of the Russian Federation.

When was the last you heard any US pol talk about foundations such as these? They can’t. A “progressive” nation is not supposed to have any such foundations. We ignore our history, deny morality, and substitute ideology for geopolitics. Our answer to any geopolitical problems: carpet bombing. If it weren’t for US firepower, we would have no friends at all.

Par. 24 or therabouts: A big truth here that America refuses to see:

ONLY through an international coalition including Russia can the growing terror threat be combated. We are doing just the opposite, inventing Russian “hacking” and smearing anyone who dares to state the truth, and Europe is now cowering before Islamic terror. America is next. Oh, but we’re now obsessing over Iran, which has never contributed one penny to ISIS and is in fact fighting it in Syria. We’ve got all that fire power but where’s the gray matter?

Par. 26:

QUOTE: The formation of a polycentric international order is an objective process. It is in our common interest to make it more stable and predictable. In these conditions, the role of diplomacy as a tool to coordinate balanced solutions in politics, economics, finance, the environment, and the innovation and technology sectors has increased significantly. Simultaneously, the role of the armed forces as the guarantor of peace has increased too.

To US Neocons, the idea that nations OTHER than the “exceptional” US (which has all but destroyed the Middle East and wiped out its Christian population) might do a better job of leading is blasphemous to the Neocons/Neoliberals who have us all in a stranglehold. The problem for them is that, while they may own the media and government, what Lavrov says here makes plenty of sense to people in other countries, who are sick and tired of being under the heel of Washington and NATO. We may have the bombs, but we have lost the propaganda war.

I received a fair amount of blowback on this commentary. Example:

This Russian government  media outlet [ http://russia-insider.com/…/incredible-speech-lavro…/ri19331 ] genuflects to Russian Foreign Secretary Lavrov, who mentions Henry Kissinger and how he supposedly took into account cultural and historical factors in interacting with other nations.

NOT QUITE: Putin and Lavrov have maintained a cordial relationship with Kissinger even though

1) Kissinger and Nixon were responsible for US bombing of Cambodia resulting in the murderous Khmer Rouge coming to power, which Kissinger and the U.S. then supported during the Killing Fields until ended by the Vietnamese army.

2) Kissinger supported the overthrow of democratically-elected Salvador Allende in Chili (9/11/1973) and the killing of thousands as  military dictator Pinochet was taking power,

3) Kissinger supported Indonesian dictator Suharto’s invasion and brutal East Timor holocaust. …

My response below.

That is all true. The reason Putin and Lavrov are friends with Kissinger is not because of what he did in the past but because he does now take history and culture into account. What he did before or how many nations and lives he destroyed is beside the point for the eminently pragmatic Russia. What he is doing NOW is trying to avoid war (because he sees that his old sneaky method is a loser and has repented) and that is all Putin cares about. Because Putin is a winner, and you can’t let anything stand in the way of winning, not even emotions. In a nutshell, Putin understands the principle of repentance and utilizes it wisely.

Who in our supposedly Christian nation really understands this wise principle?

NOTE: Putin is NOT a Westerner and does not behave like one. ONLY a tiny percentage of us will appreciate or understand this.

In the West, if a leader screws you, you hate him til one of you dies.

Not Putin. You don’t have to like this MO but it is Putin’s, it works, and you need to be aware of it.

Example: Around the start of the war in Syria, a Russian plane was shot down by the Turkish air force. Initially, Putin reprimanded and warned Turkey not to repeat this.

Erdogan did not even apologize at first. The Russian people were angry.

So Putin slapped meaningful sanctions on Turkey, notably the ban on Russians getting visas to Turkey. Russian tourists had poured significant wealth into Turkey. Now that was over. Worse, he suspended the potentially lucrative Turkish Stream pipeline project, another major economic loss for Turkey.

Erdogan felt the pain. Eventually, he apologized — REALLY a hard pill for a proud Turk to swallow!

Then a while later,as you will recall, a coup was planned in Turkey and Erdogan was targeted for removal for office. It is believed he was to be murdered.

Here is where Putin did the unexpected (if you are an average Westerner). Putin’s intel service informed him of the intended coup and Putin got on the horn and warned Erdogan. It is believed he told Erdogan that his Western partners (US and NATO) were behind the attempt. Erdogan had no trouble believing that after what the US had done to Ghadaffi, Mubarak and Yanukovich. Treachery is the name of the Washington game. The only reason any nation still deals with us is fear. Raw fear of our firepower. Not respect, not love, certainly not trust. But now the Russians are neck in neck with us in weaponry… And, er, their allies respect them.

Erdogan believed that Putin had saved his life and that was no doubt true. In so doing, Putin also gave Erdogan an object lesson in the treachery of his “allies.”

So now, as a result of the stinging treachery on the part of the allies and the loyalty of his Russian friend, Erdogan turned against the West, incl, recently, Germany, with which Erdogan is at cold war.

Meanwhile, what does one do when someone saves your life?

Of course, you treat them special, particularly if you have been unkind to them before this. Thus, Putin has persuaded Erdogan to let the US and Russia team up to provide safe haven for the Kurds in Syria, even though Erdogan hates the Kurds (Kurdish terror was a problem in turkey). Putin killed more than one bird with this stone. He managed to secure a cooperation agreement with the US, which has been snubbing him. He did so by manipulating NATO member Turkey, which is very important to US interests. It is give and take, at which Putin is an undisputed master.

As a result of this wise maneuvering, the Turkish Stream pipeline project is revived and Russian tourists are spending their money in Turkey again. The US is also forced to grudgingly admit that Putin helped keep Turkey at bay because that country has gotten way out of hand lately in its behavior toward the US and Germany.

If this is all too complicated for you and you can’t figure out what Putin is up to, don’t worry. Putin knows. He doesn’t need love, or understanding, or respect from Westerners. He’s getting plenty of those things elsewhere, where it counts.

His attitude toward Erdogan is a reflection of his attitude toward Kissinger.

No Western leader would have the motivation and the intelligence to turn an enemy into a friend the way Putin does on an almost routine basis. But consider who has the $20 trillion debt and who has almost no debt — and who goes around creating chaos that destroys nations like Libya, Syria and Kosovo while who respects the sovereignty of nations and does not meddle in their internal affairs? Since both have comparable arms at their disposal (if you consider that Russia is backed up by China), who will win?

BTW, while RT is a Russian government outlet, Russia Insider — where the Lavrov speech is featured — is owned by an American who lives in Moscow. It IS pro-Russian, however.

As for Kissinger “supposedly” taking culture and history into account, I think that is a matter of public record. Kissinger recently came out and warned the US about taunting the Russian bear. Yes, he did evil things when in office, but he has learned from his mistakes and is a whole lot smarter than any foreign service “specialist” in the US government today.

Does Russia have us outgunned? Part 4 (short answer: yes)

Does Russia have the US outgunned?

Part 4 of the translation of:

http://inosmi.ru/military/20170302/238812175.html

Obama officially ended the use of miultichannel missiles in US air defense missiles: http://allthingsnuclear.org/emacdonald/the-end-of-mirvs-for-u-s-icbms

He did not require Russia to do likewise. This unilateral disarmament is apparently ok with the rest of the government too. In other words, all this palavering about the Russian influence on US elections is just politics. It has nothing to do with real life and the elites know it. You can bet that if the pols and journos who infest our environment were really serious about defense, they would be protesting the unilateral disarmament tolerated by our government, not snivelling about Putin influencing our elections, without an ounce of proof. In reality, they know the Russians are not about to invade Europe. Only the fools who read their swill are dumb enough to buy that nonsense. So what is it all about? My suspicion is that they are simply playing to their clients, the Saudis and allies, eg,, in Tel Aviv, who donate to the campaigns.

The following article shows that the current strategy using ground based intercept missiles is a huge boondoggle, but congress is happy to spend your money on it as long as you are ignorant of this fact. Will Trump be the one to wake us up or will he spend even more of our dollars on the boondoggles?

https://www.extremetech.com/extreme/182175-the-united-states-missile-defenthese-system-will-never-work-which-is-why-were-spending-more-money-on-it

Expert opinions that I have read tell us that even the sophisticated multichannel Russian air defense systems used with the S-400, and soon the S-500 missiles, are probably not going to be able to stop a hypersonic missile. Both the Russians and the US had therefore best start being friendly. God knows, Russia has tried over and over again.

But what would the pols do without an inmaginary enemy? They’d have to start actually solving the problems they create daily in the inner cities, in health care, crime, gangs, foreign military engagements killing civilians for profit, etc.

One of the best weapons against ignorance regarding “the other” is to learn his language. What I have learned is that there is no “other,” none at all. But there is an enemy, and he is ignorance. I recognized that I had to fight this enemy first in myself and then in others. Once he is vanquished, the world will be a safe place — at least as safe as before the Neocons and the “Enlightened Ones” like Bonaparte, Hitler, Bush, Clinton, Obama, McCain, Graham, Schumer and all that gang arrived on the scene to “help.”

I’ve been in the language learning and teaching biz for over 45 years now and am still going strong. The most important information I can impart about languages now is HOW to learn a language. Linked below is Part 1, for you or your loved ones who may wish to learn a foreign language. Part 2 will explain a breakthrough method for learners on the advanced level that will boost their learning speed enormously. The advanced level is for me the most important. It is the level at which you start to read and understand foreign online newspapers, for example. If you are studying a language of one of the nations that the Western elites want you to hate and mistrust, eg, Syria, Russia or Iran, this can potentially take you light-years beyond the obnoxious lies and distortions of Western press and pols. You will even see that many of the activists who purport to be open to Russia are Establishment shills IF, that is, you are willing to doggedly pursue the objective facts.

The following is my translation of the next part of this Russian language article (Part 4 here). It pertains to subs and missiles.

Http://inosmi.ru/military/20170302/238812175.html

The Lada project is the latest attempt of the Russian fleet to create a compact diesel submarine that will be very difficult to detect.

© RIA Novosti, Alexey Danichev | Go to the photobank

Diesel submarine “St. Petersburg”

The submarine is quieter than its Soviet predecessor, the Kilo sub; it is also quieter than the engines of any of the modern Russian submarines.

Development of the “Lada” class began in the late 1990s. The first submarine of this project, the “St. Petersburg,” was launched in 2005. Currently, this submarine is the only submarine of the Lada class in production, but in the next few years  Russia plans to build two more of them.

Unlike the Borey class, the Lada is not designed to transport ballistic missiles. It is a non-nuclear combat submarine equipped with modern self-guided torpedoes for the destruction of other subs and ships. In addition, submarines of the Lada class are equipped with Vodopad torpedoes, created in Soviet times and intended to destroy other subs.

Details about this boat are for the most part kept under wraps. According to some information, the sub, with a length a 72 meters, can dive to a depth of 300 meters, and carries a crew of 37 sailors and officers. The sub’s maximum speed while submerged is 21 knots.

The Lada project is also known as the St. Petersburg class, and its subs are adapted for operations in the Baltic Sea and other relatively shallow waters.

9K720 “Iskander” missiles can hit Sweden

9K720 Iskander missiles are short-range ballistic missiles that can carry a nuclear warhead. The Iskander missile system replaced the old Soviet Scud system.

© RIA Novosti, Yevgeny Biyatov | Go to the photobank

Missile system Iskander-M

In addition to nuclear weapons, the Iskander can be equipped with many different types of warheads. Examples include high-precision bombs capable of penetrating the walls of a concrete bunker, cluster bombs and even electromagnetic missiles for destroying enemy radar systems.

At launch, the Iskander missile weighs about 3.8 tons and travels at speeds as high as 2,100 meters per second, making it very difficult for enemy air defenses to intercept it.

The missile systems are located near Kaliningrad, the former Koenigsberg in East Prussia, which at the end of the Second World War became part of Russia.

Last week, Iskander missile systems were transported from Luga, near St. Petersburg, to Baltiysk. The range of the missiles is from 400 to 500 kilometers, which means that they can strike southeastern Sweden.

In Baltiysk, which is located about 40 km west of Kaliningrad, the bulk of the Russian Baltic fleet is anchored.

Next comes the Soviet-era missile system, which is still used in the Baltic states.

Tactical missile system OTR-21 “Tochka”

The missile system OTP-21 “Tochka” is a tactical ballistic missile that was introduced to the world back in 1976. When the NATO Military Alliance learned of its existence, it was given the classification name SS-21 Scarab.

© RIA Novosti, Igor Zarembo | Go to the photobank

Preparation of the Tochka missile system for launching a tactical missile at the Pavenkovo ??military training ground in the Kaliningrad region

In the ’70s, the “Tochka” was considered a revolutionary breakthrough, because it used inertial navigation, which favorably differed from the predecessor of “Luna-M”.

The most modern version, which NATO calls Scarab C, weighs 1.8 tons, and has a range of 185 kilometers.

The missile can be equipped with either a conventional warhead or a tactical nuclear head.

SS-21 is part of the 53rd rocket brigade stationed in Chernyakhovsk, Kaliningrad region, says defense analyst Jörgen Elfving, a former lieutenant colonel working at the National Defense Institute.

“Every year, according to the Russia’s plan, two rocket brigades are re-equipped and receive Iskander-Ms. When the brigade in Chernyakhovsk will be re-equipped is not known, but in the course of the debates in Russia it is often said that placing Iskander in Kaliningrad can be an adequate response to training activities of NATO and deployment of their forces in Eastern Europe, “says Jorgen Alfving.

The S-400 can pursue 80 enemy aircraft at the same time

The S-400 is the new star of Russian air defense. The mobile anti-aircraft system is considered the most modern version of defense against enemy missiles and aircraft, along with the touted Israeli system “Iron Dome”.

The S-400 has a very advanced tracking system that can target 80 missiles and planes simultaneously. The main task of the S-400 is to neutralize the enemy’s missiles and aircraft before they reach Russian territory.

The anti-aircraft missile system uses three types of missiles: the 40N6 with a range of 400 km, the 48N6 with a range of 250 km and the 9M96, a version with a range of 120 km.

The launched missile travels toward the target at a speed of just over 1,000 meters per second.

In 2009, the Russian Armed Forces reported the deployment of S-400 complexes near the North Korean border. This was done in order to destroy the nuclear missiles of North Korea in the event they should mistakenly approach the Russian territory. [Even as wild-eyed US conspiracy theorists claim that Russia and N. Korea are military partners. It is safe to say this is pure fantasy, but what’s new?—Don]

Production of the S-400 began in 2007, and the system was developed in the late 1990s. Since then, at least 152 complexes have been deployed.

These complexes are included in the at Gvardeysk 183rd anti-aircraft missile regiment  in Kaliningrad. S-400s were deployed in the Kaliningrad region in 2012.

Their predecessor, the S-300VM, was exported, for example, to the oil-rich country of Venezuela in South America.

Next on the list is a bomber that Russia has stationed near Sweden.

End of translation

I have just made a huge discovery. A comprehensive Wikipedia article shows that the US does not use MIRVs to shoot down incoming ICBMs (BTW, Wikipedia is mainly for an overview. It is like the skeleton on which the flesh is suspended. Of course, you will need to go farther, but it is a good place to start).

Obama officially ended the use of MIRVs on US air defense missiles: http://allthingsnuclear.org/emacdonald/the-end-of-mirvs-for-u-s-icbms

He did not require Russia to do likewise. That’s why Western and Israeli aircraft entering Syrian air space are taking a huge risk.

The following article shows that the current strategy using ground based intercept missiles is a huge boondoggle, but congress is happy to spend your money on it as long as you are ignorant of this fact. Will Trump be the one to wake us up or will he spend even more of our dollars on the boondoggles?

The key to stable governance: happy people

 

The key to stable governance is happy people

 

Yesterday, I reported on an attack on an innocent German woman by an angry “refugee,” showing how German women now have real reason to fear riding on commuter trains, given the large numbers of Muslim men now riding along with them. Every German knows that Merkel is to blame for the mass immigration that brought these men to Germany.

Thus, today we read in the German press that the AdF, a popular and growing anti-Merkel and anti-immigration party, is making major strides in the state of Mecklenburg-Pomerania, once part of communist East Germany. Those of us who have travelled in the “East Zone” and in the Soviet Union can more easily see what is going on today in East-West geopolitics. (BTW, I suspect that if I had been unable to speak the languages spoken there, I never would have grasped these things. I say that with all the humility possible — under the circumstances). Some can even see the systemic errors of their entire Establishment and the sheeple who support it.

A few days ago I saw a simply pitiful post by a pseudo-intellectual Neocon apologist at AIM (Cliff Kincaid’s site) stating that Putin was using “Marxist dialectics” in his politics. He was trying to rebut a post of mine and said “you don’t understand Marxian dialectics.”

No, my dears, that is wrong on two counts. First off, Putin does not use Marxian dialectics. Russia is well past that childish phase, which we are still mired down in here in the West. Secondly, I do know enough about Marxian dialectics and Putin to be absolutely certain of that. In an interview, Putin was once asked what his ideology was and he said he didn’t have one, and that he merely faces each problem as it comes up and works hard to solve it. His managerial style makes it clear that he was telling the truth. But Westerners are trained by their keepers never to pay a bit of attention to what Putin says or does, insisting that he – the only world leader who tells the truth – is lying. And of course, he speaks Russian (gasp!). This attitude is part of our government training and can best be described as Neocon – the new Nazism. All their lives, most Westerners have seen politicians deceiving, lying and betraying and have been conditioned to believe that such is the human condition. It is not. It is the Marxian dialectic at work ramming radical Enlightenment ideology (typified by Voltaire’s writings as opposed to those of the more moderate branch of the Enlightenment) down our throats. Politicians are absolutely convinced that they are morally superior to the little people because they are imbued with a fatally flawed ideology that originated over 300 years ago but is still thought of as the undisputed superior way that must be enforced by superior beings.

The shocking fact is that the only region still using the Marxian dialect is the woefully failing West, and that would be all major countries in the West, which are puppets that basically just follow, zombie-like, Washington’s dictates (no, my dears, the UN does not control the US, as many have been taught to dutifully believe. It is the other way around).

The Marxian dialectic is a method of persuasion by stealth and deception that was refined, for example, into the Delphi technique in the US. Although it is only a technique and could theoretically be employed for good, its aim for well over a century has been to overcome logic and reason so that people will accept things that they would not accept spontaneously. That would be, by definition, unpleasant things. The Bible calls this putting good for evil and evil for good. (All of this was concisely put into perspective back in 2009 by Cassandra Goldman, here.)

Despite what you are being taught by Neoconservatives of both political parties (Hillary is the arch-Neocon), nothing like this failed dialectic-based philosophy is being written about and studied in today’s Russia by major Kremlin decision makers, who have adopted a unique principle of their own, namely, a common sense technique of governance that can be boiled down to: avoid giving the people pain and make them as happy as possible. The decision makers stumbled across this technique because ordinary Russians, initially deceived by the dialectic fol-de-rol described above, were so profoundly unhappy that they spontaneously rebelled against it. (While in Cracow in the early 70s, I lived with a family where the daughter was a physician. I asked her how much a doctor makes in Poland and she said it was the equivalent of $30/mo, a salary impossible to live on. When I asked how she got by, she laughed and said “by selling doctor’s excuses”). At some point, vast numbers of workers throughout the Soviet Union and its satellite states had stopped going to their jobs, and it became impossible to discipline them because they were too numerous. (Note that the West is on the cusp of such a quiet revolution. Brexit is the best example but more are on the way. This is because the pain has become unbearable for many, like our German lady correspondent in the commuter train full of mean Muslims).

The simple fact. which most Americans are trained not to notice or believe, is that Soviet decision makers had found the limits of authoritarianism and were forced to find a new way.

The fact that Putin has had around 80% popularity for years is a clear sign that he is succeeding in making people happy.

The fact that Congressional approval is always below 10% in the US is a sign that Americans are deeply unhappy, and we all know we are. The only reason presidents have a higher popularity than this is because they have succeeded in convincing the gullible public that they are working hard to overcome the bad influence in congress, in Wall Street, and in whichever is the opposition party, and that prosperity (eg, recovery) is just around the corner.

There is no name for this new political philosophy discovered by the Russians because it is based on reason, logic and common sense so it’s been around forever. But Western pols shun it because it is not pseudo-intellectual enough for them (they can’t bear the thought that they are not far superior to the masses in terms of intellect and morality). Meanwhile, the elitist West is busy poring over philosophy books, writing new Libertarian, rightwing, Neocon and liberal tripe to find the solution that is right in front of our noses.

So why is Mecklenburg looking to the AdF party? Because, surprise, this party actually wants to give the people what they want, without any underhanded tricks. And the people there have lived under communism so they are not as easily fooled as the brainwashed sheeple in the rest of Germany.

Many Americans believe that is also what Trump wants to do, and that would seem to be the case a priori, although it is not always easy to tell what Trump is thinking or if he is thinking what he is saying. (But unlike Neocon Hillary, he certainly does not seem, by all appearances, to want more war, especially with Russia).

I got the story about Mecklenburg turning against Merkel from the German-language site of Der Spiegel.

Now while the Soviets and the rest of the East bloc were forced, by much pain and suffering, to admit that the old Marxist experiment could not work, the West is still a babe in the woods whose “leaders” believe explicitly in the Marxian-dialectic technique, not necessarily as a method of persuading the masses, but as an end in itself, namely persuading them that everything they hate is good and common sense cannot be trusted.

Most of us are so brainwashed – not only by the Left but also by the Russia-hating (racist) Neocons and nominal “conservatives,” who approach problems in a purely legalistic way (like the Pharisees in Jesus’ day)  – that we can’t see the obvious, namely, that the only lasting and authentic value that will enable a political body to govern in the long term is happiness of the people. If the people are happy with what the governing body is doing, that body can maintain its power over them indefinitely. If not, that power is fleeting and doomed to pass away sooner or later.

So how have we allowed ourselves to be so grossly misled? There are many facets to the process by which we are deceived, but one very important factor is that our “leaders” – on both sides of the imaginary aisle – are telling us or suggesting to us that Russia and Putin are the ones who are deceiving us and that whatever they are doing is wrong or evil, and therefore, we must do the opposite. Pretty convincing if one is a dimwit.

Incredibly, we keep falling for this malarkey, keep doing the wrong thing and pursuing failed policies, and like lemmings, are literally committing mass suicide, all the while thinking that a politician on the “other” side – be it left, libertarian, middle, vegetarian or right – will save us.

What we fail to realize is that we desperately need to be saved from ourselves – ie, from our brainwashed selves. And hence, we must be our own saviors.

To accomplish this, we must simply open our eyes and see again, using the common sense we have been taught to eschew. Common sense that the God we are supposed to not believe in, gave us.

About that hammer and sickle on the Russian Army flag

About that hammer and sickle on the Russian Army flag

 

by Don Hank

Someone recently asked me why the Russian military has reverted to the hammer and sickle on their flag. I explained that this symbol antedated the Russian Revolution and did not necessarily denote communism. In fact the revolution itself was supported by a people who never dreamed it would turn communist. The hammer and sickle was rather used as a symbol of independence from the West and a kind of warning against Western meddling.

I think the fact that the symbol is back in place is a sign of just how angry and frustrated Russians are at the Western introduction of terror in Russia.

Just imagine how you would feel if another country introduced terrorist killers into the US and they occupied a school, as they did in Breslan, and started killing child hostages. Can you imagine a greater affront? Actually, the Saudis did something like this, killing 2-3000 Americans and our government covered up for them.

Meanwhile, the Russian intelligence services, including their ex chief Putin, knew the US was behind these atrocities and kept silent for 2 decades, as reported here.

You should be struck not that the Russian army has reinstated the old symbol of independence that affronts Americans, but that they sat silent for 2 decades nursing their pain from the death of those children and other atrocities committed by the US-backed and trained terrorists.

I personally have not a single doubt that everything a person or a country does to harm another will eventually come back to harm the offender. I have seen it happen too often to doubt it. It happens right around the time people wake up and recognize the treachery behind the event.

The EU bosses used trickery to induce the Brits to join them, but now, decades later, Britain has left the EU and the bosses are rightfully worried sick that another major player will leave. If Italy were to leave, for example, the EU could be crippled fatally. That’s the kind of justice I am talking about. It is divine and cosmic and it is unstoppable.

The US government lied about trade agreements for years, and now, Europe and Japan have stopped believing. Thus TTIP is all but dead. This is how it works.

In the early 70s the US made a dirty deal with the bloody Satanic Wahhabis in Saudi Arabia, whereby the US would fight all Saudi wars for them in exchange for the Saudis propping up the US dollar. The wars intentionally took the lives of innocents, including many Christians, and destabilized country after country in ways that ushered in groups like Al-Qaeda and ISIS. But despite the plot to save the dollar, last year already, almost all US allies joined the Chinese investment bank AIIB, despite desperate pleas from Obama not to join.

In compliance with unknown terms of the petrodollar agreement, Washington founded and funded, together with the Saudi Rat Pack, at least 3 major terror groups, all of which came back to bite us. Worst of all, our evil government is no longer trusted anywhere. And despite the desperate measure to prop up the dollar with murder, the plan is backfiring. The same Saudis who plotted with Washington are now grinding down the dollar with rock bottom oil prices. There is no honor among thieves they say.

Washington’s power is being drained little by little.

What went around came around.

And all the silly Neocons can talk about is a symbol on a flag. And yet, US embassies all around the world are flying the rainbow flag, no less an affront to good hard working traditional people everywhere and no Neocon utters a peep.

New low: Western Establishment picking on the handicapped

New Low: Western Establishment picking on the handicapped.

 

by Don Hank

NATO and Washington typically attack countries that can’t fight back. Symbolizing this is the disgraceful banning of the Russian para-Olympic team.

How low can you go?

And to show you how deep the Russophobia goes, I just heard this news reported on Deutsche Welle and the anchor mentioned only that the Russians are upset about this. They did not report any reaction by the West.

How do we interpret this?

Well, folks, by this kind of reporting, we are subliminally being told by our media that Westerners are not supposed to feel sorry for handicapped Russians, because they are Russian and therefore don’t deserve our sympathy. It would be unpatriotic to show sympathy to “weaker” races. That remark is not an exaggeration, not in the least. The more I analyze the Russophobic behavior and statements by the msm and politicians, the more I am convinced that anti-Russian attitudes are a blatant form of naked racism. Hitler also despised the Slavs, particularly the Russians, on the basis of race.

We are expected to be hard-hearted toward these poor souls who worked and trained so hard with major handicaps like lost limbs or partial paralysis, just because they speak Russian. If you think this is an exaggeration, remember that the US-backed Kiev government banned the use of the Russian language in public signs and discourse in the East of Ukraine where many groups have for decades spoken only Russian.

After all, by current Western standards, Russians are nothing but inferior beings who don’t deserve to live.

I see no difference between the West’s treatment and attitude toward the Russians and the way the Third Reich treated the Jews. Absolutely none. And I have lived in both countries.

I am beyond outraged.
