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....

Putin to Israel: if you start a war with Iran and Syria, it will also be seen as a US attack on Russia and China

The message is very simple that Putin has carried to Israel during his visit. It is the exact same one he gave directly to Obama at the G20 summit in Mexico last week. .... 'Don't start your war!' Is China solid in support of Putin's position for Russia? Here is how it seems from the Chinese pov...   'The Syrian opposition abroad has long called for a military operation in Syria similar to the one that helped toppling the Libyan regime of Muammar Gaddafi last year, but the United States and its European allies have shown little appetite for such intervention given the complexity of the Syrian situation and the repercussions it might drag, particularly on Israel. Syria's powerful regional allies with Iran and the Lebanese Hezbollah, along with its international ones, such as Russia, have greatly contributed in restraining the superpowers from considering a military offensive on Syria.' from Xinhua News Analysis: Syria's new government faces escalation of tension on international arena.

US military expansionism is BLOCKED by Putin at G20 Summit

Obama and Putin have just met in Mexico where the desires for the Pentagon to roll over Syria and into Iran were BLOCKED. Putin is not giving in to the US threats against Russia. Obama fails to secure support from Putin on solution to Syria crisis. Also see the BBC which covered the press conference after the meeting: Obama hits major road block for his Pentagon expansionism in Middle East.

Russia and Putin tell the US- No More of Your Pretend-to-be ‘Humanitarian’ Wars!

___ Vladimir Putin is telling the US and its allies to back off on fomenting war inside Syria. Syria conflict: Russia's Vladimir Putin stands firm Putin says that Russia is neither for Assad nor for the rebels but what it is against, is the US and its allies threatening Syria with war and its arming of the opposition to Assad. Why? Because Putin is no dummy and realizes the ultimate targets of the Pentagon are China and Russia. Further, the Russsian people back up Putin and the position he is taking. See a most recent Pew poll of Russian attitudes And further, China and Russia are united against the US military posting itself in Afghanistan forever, and both countries are making overtures to Pakistan to help that country break itself away from US control. Neither Russia nor China are for a US fomented war aginst Iran, with Syria being the opening battle. Barack Obama alongside the Republicans are playing a very deadly and unsettling geo-political game, that risks the start of a World War. The belligerence and arrogance of our corporate leaders can be seen in their now constant saber rattling over Syria. Now is time for common Americans to demand a stop to all this. Sitting still and doing nothing is really a suicidal approach. NO MORE WAR NOW!

The Russians kicked the Nazis’ ass; will they have to kick the US govt’s ass too?

May 9 is one of the biggest holidays in Russia, commemorating the day the Nazis got their ass kicked by the Soviet Union in WW2. See a film of this year's celebration in Red Square... Goodbye Nazis .. of some interest to us dazed and dozing Americans, have been the multiple threats by Russia's government in this month of May leading up to the celebration, to launch a preemptive strike against our own US government and its allies! Pay attention, Comrades! from article Russia marks 67th anniversary of victory over Nazi Germany. 'During a short speech to thousands of servicemen and guests, Putin declared that the country is a force for world security and that Russia will stand up for its positions in the international arena. "Russia consistently carries out a politics of strengthening security in the world and we have a great moral right to stand up for our positions in a principled and determined way,” he said. The comment comes a week after a top Russian military official threatened to carry out a preemptive strike in Eastern Europe if Washington went ahead with its controversial plan to build a missile system and refused to engage in constructive dialog over the issue.'

Russian Airport reaction: From the reactionaries.

Which in their customary thought processes, comes out as confusion. For a long while they've been vacillating, our Dearest Redneck Leaders that is. They praise the Putin-Medvedev-KGB response to the theatre hostage situation, where they killed civilians to get at the terrorists, then a school with the same methods, same results... In response to REAL Caucasians who formerly had, until being rolled over by the Russians under the Tsars and kept a part of Russia under the Soviets and still are, much like the much booed Soviet takeover in Afghanistan which mirrors the Current NATO takeover, Where "our" current enemies were THEIR enemies... they had been sovereign nations. Then the Right Wing Reactionaries condemn the Russian government for being simultaneously too lenient and too hard-line. WTF? How Hard-Core Repressive Does One Have To Be To Satisfy These Jackasses? This attack occurred in the waiting area where people were queued up waiting to be poked, prodded, stripped, x-rayed and fondled by the Russian equivalent of TSA. So what next, what levels of "security" will suffice? a buffer zone around the buffer zone? Having to hire extra uniformed thugs to staff the new protocol and the buffer zones that will expand ever outward around them? A perpetually replicating concentric circle, what happens when the borders of the safety zone collide with the borders of other safety zones, do the uniformed thugs declare inter-agency war on each other? All that extra staffing, they'll need to hire extra Security Screen personnel to do background checks on the New Hires. And of course constantly monitor them. Spies to keep track of the other spies. If I were to write a computer program that does the same thing it would take all the space in each infected computer in a matter of hours. Trillions of bytes of replicated, duplicated effort. And this in the post-Capitalist economy wherein Ponzi Capitalism crashed and burned. Again. Perhaps in its final death throes. You on the Capitalist side of the argument, you can't afford the security measures that would make your stolen gold and stolen oil safe. You don't have enough money and guess what? Your usual method of securing extra capital, Conquest? ain't going to work either because you've already stolen all the money in the world. There's nothing left for you to steal. Now for the REALLY sad part. Remember World War One? Well, unless you're about a hundred and twenty years old you probably don't. But World War One was BEFORE there were any socialist economies active. All the belligerent parties were Capitalists who banked in the same system. And they ran into essentially the same problem, all the resources were locked into either your own account, or those of competing corporations nations. No new capital to sustain the unsustainable. Money borrowed from people who had in turn borrowed. No principal left, just an upward spiral of increasing interest. What are Bloated Capitalist Big-pigs to do in such a scenario? Exactly what they did in 1914, mobilize their hordes of Peasants to march off and slaughter

Georgian Saakashvili, the anti Putin

He rode to power on a CIA/USAID/CPD-backed colored revolution (Georgia's was Rose), he invaded South Ossetia at NATO's prompting, but Mikheil Saakashvili startled when Russian tanks immediately took it back, and the Georgian president hasn't stopped screaming for western support. He's still fretting over something the Russian Prime Minister had uttered during that engagement. Didn't it seem, last August, that Saakashvili wanted to give Georgia back and return to his safe American home? He dared let US special ops advisers give Georgian soldiers insurgency training, but when the people of South Ossetia resisted falling into the sphere of western oil interests, Saakashvili went crying to mommy. There is probably no denying that Russia will not abide a US puppet playing host to western terrorist subversives at its border. But Putin has been mum on the matter, choosing instead to parade about shirtless. We're laughing at the Fabio act, but Putin's foe in Georgia is shaking like he anticipates the pig scene from Deliverance in his future. Saakashvili is raising the alarm, explaining Georgia's vulnerability. Says he, “Putin has to break our neck. He has to fulfill his solemn pledge to hang me by a certain part of the body.” Last year, during talks to end the conflict in South Ossetia, Putin had told French President Sarkozy that he wanted to hang Saakashvili “by the balls.” Has the US no better contender to foist upon the newly westernized Georgians than sissy Saakashvili? They should have auditioned candidates with their shirts off.

Russian Copy Cat Capitalism to lend bankers a helping hand

All that 'Marxist Leninist' education that Putin had in his youth so that he could now do as Obama does, and hand out 'stimuluses' to bankers to protect them from pitchforks and hammers and sickles! Putin Says $90B Stimulus Plan to Ease Hard Year It's been a 'hard year' for the poor elites of Russia, so get out your hankies, Putin and friends. 'Putin also said he supported consolidation among the country’s 1,500 banks and warned lawmakers to support, rather than “attack,” bankers because they are vital to the economy.' And to think that many in the US still think of him as a tough, old commie! He's a pussy cat really, don't you think? Everybody will be guaranteed their usual caviar, and not just party bosses in this New Brave Russia! Yes, Russia's working class, just like America's, has never had to suffer like these poor managers of financial funds have had to, and Russia's leaders, just like America's, must come first. America first! Russia first! That's 'patriotism' no matter where these days? Certainly a noble value compared to that nasty idea of international solidarity among the working class, and other such backward, retrograde commie nonsense. It's just wrong to run out and help the worker when a poor, wealthy unhealthy banker is wobbling along in the street half crippled and all. They might even turn to alcohol if Obama and Putin don't get together and help these poor souls out? It's been a 'hard year'... Don't let the rich drown themselves in vodka! Give them a helping hand.

Putin once again to the US and Europe- ‘Fuck you, you are not going to turn Russia into a Third World rape victim!’

Russia-Ukraine gas talks collapse --like when the US tried to pull off its little con game using Georgia to bomb South Ossetia. Vladimir Putin has responded to the US and its Klan of Western European allies, that Russia will not be dragged further into the Third World by capitalist imperialism. That's what it's all about, too, as both the former Chinese and Russian 'socialist' bureaucrats were promised full partnerships in the imperialist capitalist world if only they would tag along quietly behind the US and its world allies. Instead, the Pentagon has been trying to push both countries backwards and not forwards. The USA government has been having its own way for the last three decades doing it, too. Colonialism 101 is something that the former 'Marxist-Leninist buffoons running China and the Soviet Union back then never learned for themselves, let alone taught to others in their pantomime of playing 'Great Helmsmen' cartoon roles for the world public. Both Russia and China drifted away from internationalism and solidarity with the oppressed of the poorer and exploited Third World masses of destitute laborers, and instead began to ape assholes like Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan in their politics. They wanted their places on the big table alongside their capitalist associates of Great Britain and the US, Germany, France, and Japan. The dummies were conned, and Putin is quite aware of that by now. Further, he understands Peak Oil is a reality, as well as Peak Gas. In his words, 'Cheap Energy' is over for you guys, and now we're not just going to sit by and let you pillage everything from our country, Russia. Sadly, our own US 'leaders', from Obama to Clinton to Bush to all of the schmucks up there are nothing but criminal robbers and murderers, and world war is soon in the cards if the common folk don't begin to wise up in the US and Britain, Germany, France, and Japan quite soon. Not to mention the utter ecological destruction of our planet in the cards for all of us quite soon, too, if we continue to fail to act. That picture is of the university in Gaza being bombed by the US... Oh, I meant Israel. Sorry.... Happy New Year.

Putin accuses Georgian government attack of being part of McCain campaign

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has accused the US of provoking the conflict in Georgia, possibly for domestic election purposes. Putin blames US for Georgia role Good luck, Vladimir, but not even God can revitalize Obama's campaign at this point, not with Joe Biden on board. Besides, Barack and 'Joe' are just as much as trying to get a nuclear war going with you as the next 'John' is. Most of us Americans are too stupid to care about nuclar matters anyway.

Russia rejects NATO, refuses to be dismembered like Yugoslavia and Iraq

When the Russian Communist Party re-established capitalism in the former Soviet Union, its top misleaders at the time(including Putin) thought that the place that Russia would be granted in the new world disorder would be somewhat akin to the position that Germany, France, and Italy are granted by the US. These Russian top dogs thought that they would become the new capitalist politicos of capitalist junior partner national governments underneath the broad US Empire's umbrella. Poor students of Lenin these guys were indeed. Things started to look very sour as living standards plummeted everywhere in the fSU, not least of all in Russia itself. Then the US began to play off bits and pieces of the fSU against itself, kind of like they are now doing in Iraq. These sad sack formerSoviet Union leaders looked on sadly as they saw Yugoslavia dismembered piece by piece after piece. Divide and conquer, not assimilate and assist as they had rather simply believed would be the case. Putin is now a leader of a bloc of politicians, generals, and other assorted big wigs in the new Russian capitalist state. They now have lost their previous delusions entirely. They correctly see that it was never meant to be that they would be offered integration into junior partnership with the US and its Western European Klan. The US-Brit kingdom wants only to turn Russia into a gigantic, but utterly divided colony to better plunder the natural resources there. Russia has had its back against the wall and it has not been able to consolidate an alliance with India and China against the US Empire. The US has so far successfully managed to divide and play off these 3 countries against themselves. Russia is backed against a wall as the US occupies Iraq and Afghanistan and is set to do the same with Iran, and has moved the missile systems of US-NATO into forward positions everywhere. Russia knows that the US government thinks and wants that it can win a nuclear war against them, and has funded and worked to do so for the last 2 decades, not to mention the many decades when Russia was the core of the fSoviet Union. Further the Russians know that the forces for Peace inside the US and its allied countries are weak, play stupid, and are largely ineffective barriers to the war drive of our governments. They cannot look to these forces as brakes on our own governments. We are at a scary moment because Russia is starting to refuse to be pushed around any further, yet the thugs that head the US government up have convinced themselves they can bully Russia down all the more, and not less. They think that they can destroy 'the enemy', independent countries everywhere. and their arrogance can very well become the fall of us all.... the cause
