Do unto Putin…


Putin has clearly over-extended into the Ukraine, and if he doesn’t realize it yet, he will soon enough.  Russia remains powerful, but they are not the super power they once were.  I’ve argued with many a neocon that Russia is no significant threat to us today.   My argument does not rest on an assumption of Russian weakness, however, as I know they are still powerful.  My argument rests on a realistic understanding of self-interest and power politics.  Russia has nothing to gain from conflict with US, and if anything, they could be a valuable ally against a rising China (assuming China recovers from recent financial woes).  But at the moment, they are flexing their military might in neighboring Ukraine, an important western ally in balancing out Russia’s power.  We can’t stand by and let this happen, because a Russian dominated Ukraine would shift the balance of power unfavorably for US.

Recent threats of sanctions and possibly removing Russia from the G8 summit are probably our best bet.  I am not a fan of long term sanctions against third world dictators, as such sanctions normally oppress the people of those countries while only cementing the power of the dictator.  Putin, however, is not a third world dictator.  He is a powerful president, clearly, but he has abided by Russia’s constitution.  Putin is also wise enough to know the mistake he has made here, and he will probably want a face-saving way out soon enough.  This brings me to my main point of this entry.

Not too long ago, pushed by the cacophony of neocons, Obama nearly over-extended us into Syria.  We nearly made a terrible mistake, as we were close to aiding the “Free Syrian Army” against the government of Syria (which is backed by Putin).  This “Free Syrian Army” is not the only force standing against the government – Al Qaeda is also.  By helping the “Free Syrian Army”, we would have indirectly aided Al Qaeda as well.  Neocons love to shoot first and aim later, however.  Once Obama took enough time to aim, he realized the big mistake we were about to make.  Of course, he never admitted to how close we were to actually helping Al Qaeda.  Instead, he wanted to pretend that we had accomplished something.  Our official reason for being involved was to stop the Syrian government from using chemical weapons, and if we were to stand down without egg on our face, something had to be done about those weapons.  Fortunately, Putin came in and made an agreement with the Syrian government that they would follow a schedule to decommission their chemical weapons.  We then stood down, and Obama was able to give one of his empty “victory” speeches.  The neocons still want conflict with Syria, and are so desperate to get their war fix that they attempted to pass new sanctions on Syria, which would have violated our end of the agreement.  Fortunately, the neocons are no longer powerful enough to fear-monger and red-bate us into more pointless wars, and their efforts have failed.

No matter how Obama spins it, the truth is that Putin saved our butts, and we should return the favor when the time comes.  I’d recommend that Obama be prepared to meet with Putin, and discuss how Russia can stand down from the Ukraine without public embarrassment.  Russia’s official interest in the Ukraine is the well-being of Russian nationals who live there, so any agreement must ensure their protection.  It will be good for US, good for Russia, and good for our western European allies.  The big loser?  Why the neocons of course!  This is why the neocons will loudly beat their war drums over the next few weeks.  I think, however, that Putin will see his error, and Obama will be happy to return the favor from Syria (mostly to spite the neocons and other chicken-hawks in Congress).


One thought on “Do unto Putin…

  1. WITHOUT A SHOT being fired, Putin has secured a thorough purge of Ukrainian authority from the Autonomous Republic of Crimea (ARC).

    As home to Russia’s Black Sea Fleet in the port of Sevastopol, Putin can now be assured that his access to Egypt, Syria, and Iran—wherein his opposition to the agenda of the Jew-ruled West is bearing fruit—will not be compromised.

    Contrary to reports by the Jew York Times, Putin NEVER “invaded” or “besieged” Ukraine. It has been proven, ironically by the SAME Jew York Times, that Crimean “provisional armed forces” of the ARC and NOT Russian soldiers are the ones guarding sensitive infrastructure entities in the peninsula. Indeed, the provisional army is made up of Crimea’s own home boys…in their apparently brand new uniforms bought from Russia.

    As for Russian soldiers patrolling sensitive areas in Sevastopol and Crimea, CIA Director John Brennan briefed lawmakers today that Russia’s military movements in Ukraine is “permitted” under a 1997 treaty between the two neighbors that allows as many as 25,000 Russian troops in the Crimean region. <<< WHY DOESN'T COMPLETELY CORRUPT JEWSNEWS REPORT THIS?

    “The number of Russian troops that have surged onto the Ukrainian peninsula in recent days remains well below the 25,000 threshold,” Brennan affirmed. The Crimean government, although it sacked the Kiev-based regional government, will remain part of Ukraine but will strengthen its autonomy as a “federated” republic.

    Until the amended constitutional referendum is voted on at the end of March, Crimea remains a provisional autonomous government.

    Here’s the lay of the geopolitical land in Ukraine:

    1) With Putin upholding regional and international treaties;
    2) With the Crimean government organizing its own Defense Ministry;
    3) With Ukraine’s Navy Commander Berezovsky pledging an oath to the Crimean people;
    4) With an entire Ukraine Air Force Base switching allegiance to Crimea, refusing to take orders from the new, self-appointed government in Kiev;
    5) With Ukraine military units refusing orders from the illegitimate regime in Kiev;
    6) With the EU unlikely to match the US in threatening sanctions against Russia;
    7) With Odessa and two other southern Ukrainian capitals expressing willingness to become a part of the ARC…all that’s left for Putin to do is to put the screws on Kiev and his work is finished.

    BOTTOM LINE: Kiev better make friends with Putin fast. Putin insists that the illegitimate regime in Kiev MUST comply with the EU-brokered February 21st Agreement which insures a lawful government until the agreed-upon December elections.

    The people of Ukraine need to prevent Yats the Yid, Nuland’s Yiddishe boy in Kiev, from enslaving them to the Jew-owned IMF. Better things are ahead for Ukraine with Christian Putin than with Christ-Crucifying Jews.
