Kofi Annan troops to Moscow on behalf of the Pentagon

Poor Kofi, it is not easy being the head of the ‘United Nations’ brigade of the US military. Here he is, trooping off to Moscow pleading with Putin to allow the Pentagon to continue to try to smash up the Assad government in Syria. Annan Finds Mild Response in Russia on Syria. ‘Russia, Help us out here!’ must have been Kofi’s plea.

‘Mild Response in Russia’? The Pentagon propagandists really know how to be mealy with their words, don’t they? Here below was the actual response to Annan, which was basically to tell Kofi to go to Hell!

‘Russia supports a simple three-month extension of the observers’ mandate. Western powers want language that could open the door to military action by outsiders. In Russia, that topic is taboo.

Fyodor Lyukanov, editor of Russia in Global Affairs magazine, says the Putin government will not budge.

“There is a red line which Russia will never cross. I will say never. This is legitimization of any kind of outside intervention, military intervention in Syria,” Lyukanov said.’

Will Russia stand firm against the new Pentagon aggressions in the Middle East? That still waits to be seen….
