Bush is gone and Mr. Change changes nothing at all. Obama supports secret prisons, he supports spying on citizens, he supports wars expanding, a bigger military, and wild domestic spending. Well, we now have increasing proof, not one thing in our foreign affairs is different nor are they changing at all, even slightly. Iran is still the Evil Axis of One or Many and Pakistan is still being illegally attacked by killer robot drones and the US still supports the Jews in Israel no matter how fascist.
I wish the Jewish people learned the real lessons of the German Nazi experience: ethnic cleansing is evil, fascism is evil, stealing stuff is wrong even if one has a god that says it is OK to steal. It is illegal in most cultures. Thank you. The US was founded on cheating stone age natives out of their lands and then killing them. So we are not exactly as shining example of morals. But we signed international agreements which now should stop us from invading other countries and stealing stuff. Not that we pay any attention to all this.
Clinton said Washington shared Israel’s concerns, denied by Tehran, that Iran was seeking nuclear weapons: “We intend to do all that we can to deter and prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons,” she said, while repeating Obama’s offer to engage with Iran under certain conditions.
On Russia, which opposes plans for a U.S. missile shield in Europe, she noted that she had met Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov briefly on Monday at an international meeting and would meet him again for longer on Friday:
“What we have said specifically in regard to missile defence in Europe is that it has always been intended to deter any missiles that might come from Iran,” Clinton said. “It remains our position. We have explained that to the Russians before.”
Here we go again: the entire stupid concept returns, this business of parking missiles in Poland, aimed at Russia, to protect Europe from Iran, a country that has zero history of invading Europe or attacking Europe. Anyone looking at a globe can see, the probability of Iran heaving missiles to Warsaw is pretty slim.
Even more obvious is why on earth would they do this? They have no political or economic reasons to nuke Warsaw. On the other hand, Warsaw has always been the open front door for sneak attacks on Russia! History is absolutely crystal clear about this. The last time was so recent, there are still many people alive who remember this event and some of them still live in Russia.
Why is the odious frump, Hillary, pushing this infantile notion in her tattered baby carriage? Like Rosemary’s Baby—where this woman has a demon baby of the Apocalypse—Hillary has picked up the cute little monster birthed in Tel Aviv and is peddling it to the Russians. People who are quite capable of blowing all of Europe up if the Europeans are too annoying.
Instead of embracing Russia and befriending Russia, Europe and America sought to weaken Russia and dominate Russia. Russia is still resurgent—remember, when all systems are going down to zero, the ones that don’t hit zero are ahead of the ones that totally collapse and Russia is not totally collapsing. Or worse, if Russia does collapse, Europe and the US will not win, we will all die. Keeping Russia from collapsing is hyper, hyper important.
Already, Pakistan is collapsing. This is due to the US undermining the government of Pakistan, a government that is about to fall into chaos and a government with nuclear missiles. Both Russia and China do not want a bunch of crazed Taliban using nuclear missiles. Why do we think, with this obvious future danger, we need to surround Russia with missiles? Shouldn’t we be cooperating with them to save Pakistan?
Russian President Dimitry Medvedev’s comments came in response to a New York Times report that US President Barack Obama had written a secret letter to his Russian counterpart offering to halt the planned missile shield, which would be located mainly in Poland and the Czech Republic, in return for Moscow’s help in stopping Iran from developing long-range nuclear weapons.
The Russian president welcomed the “positive signals” coming from the Obama administration with which he said he hoped to reach “agreements.” “Haggling,” however, was “not productive,” added Medvedev on Tuesday, March 3.
The Russian president also said Obama’s letter had not presented the issue in such a way.
Obama on Tuesday said the Times report did not “accurately characterize the letter” he sent Medvedev.
“What I said in the letter was that, obviously, to the extent that we are lessening Iran’s commitment to nuclear weapons, then that reduces the pressure for — or the need for a missile-defense system,” he said.
After Bush, the Russians thought the Americans voted for ‘Change’. Instead, they now realize that Obama is a changeling. He is Bush’s twin. They sent many a positive signal only to have Rosemary’s Baby carriage pushed in the Polish front door. Now, they are going to move even closer to the Chinese.
The Germans don’t want Russia angry with Europe. But they also fear Russia. They want the US to keep Russia away yet they know that the US is falling into bankruptcy. The only way the US can prevent this bankruptcy is for us to be very friendly with Russia, OPEC and China. As well as our masters in Japan.
The matrix of power is definitely shifting as the US goes off the financial cliff. We are not selling energy to Europe, we are competing with Europe for energy resources. China is competing with Europe for energy resources. So is Japan. The entire G7 will be at each other’s throats in the future. If industry revives, this is inevitable. The old systems are falling, fast. Car drivers in China will determine future oil prices.
Russia was going to work with Iran to placate the US. Instead of greeting this as a great way to start a new administration, Obama, himself, repudiated this and slapped the Russian bear on the nose. This is setting the stage for the need of a military confrontation I call WWIII. Why Obama wants this is pure insanity. The US will not be an outsider of this world war. It will hammer us at home, very hard. Most of this nation will not survive the first 12 hours of this war.
Why are we doing this? Are we expecting lots of small wars on China and Russia’s borders and them enduring this? While we are deep in debt to everyone? Especially, China, our #1 debt and dollar holder? How insane is this? From top to bottom, our foreign policy system is beholden to AIPAC and the End of Times theology of the Death Gods of Jerusalem.
WWIII will not make Americans richer. It won’t make industrial jobs reappear. It won’t fix our economy like WWI and WWII did. It will end us as a nation and possibly, end our existence as a species. Why push for this? Sigh.
The first consignment of non-military cargo from the United States for its forces in Afghanistan has been transited via Russia, the Interfax news agency reported on Tuesday.
“The U.S. non-military cargo transited within the framework of the agreement on the shipments of non-military cargo for the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan reached by Russia and NATO last year,” Interfax quoted anonymous diplomatic sources as saying.
“All countries that are involved in this force can use this route to transit such cargo in line with the agreement,” the sources said, adding that this transit is “the first test case” in such cooperation with Washington.
Russia still helps us but I note that they will not let us use them as a military corridor. They do NOT want Afghanistan run by Islamic radicals. They are not afraid of Iranian radicals, there are no fears the Shi’a will overrun Sunni lands. But they fear the Sunni radicals. And for good reason.
The US is pretty cheeky, pushing Russia around today right on the heels of Russian cooperation. Russians have good reason to be very suspicious of the US intentions. We greet all cooperation as an opportunity to stomp on toes and make insults. I wish we grew up a bit and behave more diplomatically. HAHAHA. Fat chance.
A group of about 30 gunmen wearing masks and carrying machine guns entered the offices of Naftogaz and took control of every floor of the company’s building in the capital of Kiev, Naftogaz spokesman Valentyn Zemlyansky said….
The Security Service opened a criminal case on Monday into alleged misappropriation of 6.3 billion cubic meters of transit gas worth over 7.4 billion hryvnia ($880 million) by a group of Naftogaz officers, Interfax reported.
Gazprom said it was “worried”about transport though Ukraine to Europe after the raid, the company said in an e-mailed statement today.
Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko hammered out the Jan. 19 agreements, which doubled the price of imports for Ukraine this year, with her Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin. Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko, who picks the head of the security service, called the accords a capitulation. He supports today’s actions, according to his spokeswoman, Iryna Vannykova.
Timoshenko said Ukraine purchased 11 billion cubic meters of gas held by Swiss-registered RosUkrEnergo AG, the sole importer of gas into Ukraine from 2006 through 2008, after the accord was signed. Dmitry Firtash, who owns about half of RosUkrEnergo, said the trader made no sale to the government and the gas is contracted for delivery to Poland, Romania and Hungary. Gazprom own 50 percent of the trader.
Spring is here! Time to fight with the Russians over the pipelines and prices! Russia knows that Winter is their friend and protector and summer is their enemy. The games being played here will destabilize Europe. The rest of Europe has to figure out, they can’t control events unless they first embrace Russia and befriend Russia and show sincere concern about Russian needs and respect Russian power. This means, not following the US diplomats and our strange obsession with alienating Russia.
Opposition leader Ichiro Ozawa’s remark on Japan’s national security, seemingly questioning the need for much of the U.S. military presence in Japan, is making waves as friend and foe alike try to decipher its meaning.
While talking to reporters in Kashiba, Nara Prefecture, on Tuesday, Ozawa, president of Minshuto (Democratic Party of Japan), was asked his position on a treaty to relocate U.S. Marines from Okinawa Prefecture to Guam.
In his response, he said, “In these times, there is not much meaning to having the United States basing its troops on the front lines. From a strategic military standpoint, since the U.S. Navy’s 7th Fleet is here, that is sufficient for the U.S. presence in the Far East.”
This article explains why the US and the LDP are hysterically happy they can pin a corruption charge on Ozawa. They fear any change. Despite the LDP pushing the Japanese people into this epic, immense depression, they now want the people of Japan to change NOTHING AT ALL. Instead of revolutionary change coming to the world via the US voters, we see NOTHING CHANGING AT ALL. We see everyone trying to keep the US military stranglehold on world dynamics intact.
As Japan continues to fret over a planned test launch in North Korea, the military is preparing to deploy the “Son of Star Wars”missile defense system in case they decide to try to shoot down a North Korean rocket.
If it is capable of reaching Japan then it goes without saying that we will react,” says Japan’s Defense Minister Yasukazu Hamada, who says that preparations have been made in case the test fire malfunctions and poses a threat to Japanese territory.
Unlike Iran vis a vis distant Europe, Korea is right next door to China and Japan. And the Japanese can be wiped out easily in any nuclear exchange. So can Korea. But not China. Only immense countries like China, Russia and the US can survive a nuclear war…if anyone survives, a big ‘if’. Maybe the Chinese Dragon will allow NK to shoot a missile just to see how accurate the US and Japan is in shooting it down. Makes sense to me.
The US is not talking friendly at all with other empires. We imagine our allies will make us strong enough to defy Russia and China at the same time. But anyone looking at the numbers can clearly see, if Europe and Japan, who drove us deep into debt, are going to fund us, well, who has the most US debts? China! So I can securely say, we need China. China wants to trade with us, we have to cooperate with China. Moving all industry out of China will not bring peace and plenty. Unlike the US, the Chinese are very aware of this process and are prepared to counterattack. After all, they did listen to me in the past!
They understand the concept of moving factories into countries and then moving them out again. The Chinese will let certain industries such as toy-making move out but NOT autos, aircraft, ships, computers, etc. They know which industries they wish to keep and will keep them. Period. They can and will and PLAN to nationalize any important industry that tries to leave. They won’t mess around like in the US, whining about losing things. They will seize and control any important industries. This is part of the 50 Year Plan. Trust me on this.
These pictures are all about drinking, prostitutes and exactly the sort of stuff we like to do when we conquer nations. Just as we turned Vietnam and Korea into our whorehouses and drug addiction points, so it is with Iraq. This is insanity. The people we are fighting are moralists. They want to stop prostitution and drugs. The US encourages this even as we wage war at home based on morals saying that drugs and wild sex are evil!
This place in the WP story will eventually be blown up while our troops try to party there. This is an easy prediction to make.
