In an interview today with Politika, a Serbian newspaper, Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin, said that it is futile and dangerous for the US and its European puppets to blackmail Russia and that the Exceptional Nation and its vassals should consider the risks that are inherent in aggressive disputes between countries heavily armed with nuclear weapons. Putin noted that Obama took a hostile attitude toward Russia in Obama’s UN speech to the General Assembly on September 24 when Obama declared Russia to be one of the three threats to the world along with the Islamic State and ebola. President Putin said that unilateral and punitive actions taken against Russia can provoke a crisis, and that if Washington’s purpose is to”isolate our country, it is an absurd and illusory goal.”

Here are some of President Putin’s direct quotes:

“How can we talk about de-escalation in Ukraine while the decisions on new sanctions are introduced almost simultaneously with the agreements on the peace process?”

“Together with the sanctions against entire sectors of our economy, this approach can be called nothing but hostile.”

“We hope that our partners will realize the futility of attempts to blackmail Russia and remember what consequences discord between major nuclear powers could bring for strategic stability.”

If we don’t all die from nuclear blasts, radiation, and nuclear winter, it will be because of the humanity and common sense–both of which are missing in Washington–of the President of Russia.

Look around you. The economies and stock markets of Western civilization are in retreat. Stupid and incompetent public authorities have brought ebola into America. And what is Washington doing? The energies of the Exceptional Government are focused on combating the Islamic State, a creature created by Washington itself, and on demonizing Russia.

Has any country, anywhere on the fact of the earth, at any period of history been so totally misruled as the United States?

Americans need to understand that their government is not merely incompetent and immoral, but that it is evil. Washington hides behind moral language but is itself devoid of moral conscience. There is no evil of which Washington is incapable. Those who support Washington support evil.

    He’s spoken on other issues as well. In an interview for a Serbian newspaper Putin said:

    “Unfortunately, the vaccine against the Nazi virus, developed at the Nuremberg trials, is losing its effectiveness in some European countries. A clear sign of this trend is open manifestations of neo-Nazism, which have become common in Latvia and other Baltic states”…

    “Today, our common goal is to counter the glorification of Nazism, firmly counter attempts to revise the results of world war II and consequently fight any forms and manifestations of racism, xenophobia, aggressive nationalism and chauvinism.”

    The Guardian

    So what’s up next for the glorious anti-Nazi crusader Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin? A destabilisation plan for Latvia with more “little green men”? That will give PCR, American libertarians, and paleocons another chance to swoon for their hero.

    Dunno. A neocon-sponsored Nazi putsch in Latvia would likely happen only after a non-Russophobic government was elected. Does that seem likely to you?

  3. Kiza says:

    It is true that some countries can be used to start a war on Russia easier than others. For example, I could not imagine Poland being used in this way, because Poland has no Russian minority to my knowledge (expelled and killed long time ago). But Poland is already heavily involved in Ukraine fighting. Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania do have large Russian minorities, which already have experienced the heavy hand of the semi-Nazi pro-Western governments in those small area but big problem countries. If Ukraine does not do the job, then LEL is the next candidate for destabilisation. Russian “aggression” must be.

    PCR, like Bruce Fein, has gone completely nuts.
