Okay. Hiatus is over, but this is a helluva way to get back into the game. #russianterrortactics…again

These bastards just don’t learn. Do they? Or is it because they see the impotent, give-a-shit, limp dick presiding in the White House? As I think about it, I’m moved to believe the latter. Vladimir Putin doesn’t give a rat’s ass about Barry Soetoro (He who calls himself Barack Obama, these days), and has had his Foreign Minister deliver what appears to be the bottom line to our Foreign Minister (Secretary of State) Hillary

Russia on Saturday soundly rejected U.S. calls for increased pressure on Syrian President Bashar Assad to relinquish power. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton tried to prod Moscow into supporting U.N. action to end the crisis in Syria and she expressed hope that Congress would repeal Cold War-era trade restrictions on Russia.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, after meeting Clinton on the sidelines of a meeting of Pacific Rim leaders, told reporters that Moscow is opposed to U.S.-backed penalties against the Assad government, in addition to new ones against Iran over its nuclear program, because they harm Russian commercial interests.

“Our American partners have a prevailing tendency to threaten and increase pressure, adopt ever more sanctions against Syria and against Iran,” Lavrov said. “Russia is fundamentally against this, since for resolving problems you have to engage the countries you are having issues with and not isolate them.”

“Unilateral U.S. sanctions against Syria and Iran increasingly take on an extraterritorial character, directly affecting the interests of Russian business, in particular banks,” he said. “We clearly stated that this was unacceptable, and they listened to us. What the result will be, I don’t know.”

Okay, first things firstest. repeal Cold War-era trade restrictions on Russia. Umm, how shall I respond to that? The Scorpion, upon asking the Eagle for a ride across the river, replied “Oh, I promise not to sting you!” We all know how that story ended…and why… To ask the scorpion not to be who it is and to not do what it does is counter-intuitive and foolish. Our guy, Ronnie, may have gotten Micha to allow for the tearing down of The Wall, but that doesn’t change the nature of the scorpion.

Moscow is opposed to U.S.-backed penalties against the Assad government, in addition to new ones against Iran over its nuclear program, because they harm Russian commercial interests.

Sorry, bucko, but in the same way Bill Gates and company don’t give a damn about Corell and Novell, we’re (that would be the USA) are not the least bit inclined to give a damn about the once powerful bunch of bastards who either committed or suborned the slaughter of tens of millions of human lives around the planet. That’s right. I said planet, not neighborhood. Yer lad Vlad has too many years under his belt as a Colonel in the once fearsome KGB, to be considered anything less than a threat to peace loving nations anywhere. In other words, dear reader, I consider Vladimir Putin to be the Scorpion King. He who is one dangerous Muther Hubbard.

Our American partners have a prevailing tendency to threaten and increase pressure, adopt ever more sanctions against Syria and against Iran,” Lavrov said. “Russia is fundamentally against this, since for resolving problems you have to engage the countries you are having issues with and not isolate them.

Yeah, well, our playground…our rules. As for engaging other nations, we’ve found that at gun point is usually best. To the contrary, the belligerent ones don’t usually take us seriously. Were it not for the Linebacker II operation in Vietnam, how many more years would we have toiled fruitlessly toward “peace with honor”? Kick someone’s ass up around their ears, and they’re generally more inclined to pay attention to what you’re saying.

There’s more, but you can read it for yourself. Palaver welcome.
