Comments on: The dying Russian bear strikes again http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2012/07/18/the-dying-russian-bear-strikes-again/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Neil_McGowan http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2012/07/18/the-dying-russian-bear-strikes-again/#comment-57576 Mon, 23 Jul 2012 19:56:35 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=13573#comment-57576 The main problem is that American Foreign Policy since WW2 has hinged on a patron-client model.

The USA doesn’t want allies – it wants puppets it can control and use. My own country of birth, Great Britain, is the most loyal and toe-sucking of all such puppets. In a country where they’ve said even health and education must be slashed to survive – they are paying $5M PER DAY to support American wars in countries which no-one in Britain could even find on a world map, and which don’t matter one iota to Britain.

I’ve lived in Russia for the past 12 years, and it’s my home these days. Partly because I like it. Partly because my family is here. Partly for my career, but mostly because I despise my own country as a gutless, spineless yankee puppet warmaker, and I refuse to live there or pay its taxes.

The big difficulty yankees have with Russia is that IT NEEDS NOTHING FROM AMERICA. Nothing, nada, niente. Russia doesn’t need your oil, it has plenty, thanks. It has high standards of education (waaay better than yours, I’m afraid). It has excellent State health-care, which frees its citizens from the tyranny of health insurance scams. It has a developed scientific community which is respected and appreciated. It has symphony orchestras, ballet companies, opera houses, drama theatres, art-galleries and liberaries in even its smallest towns.

Every day in Russia, 141 million people wake up to Russian-language tv and radio, to news delivered independently of what Rupert Murdoch believes. They go to their jobs and their schools and colleges. And they don’t think about America at all – nor should they have to.

And that is what America HATES. Americans hate people who don’t eat hamburgers or watch the Disney Channel or worship Paris Hilton.

Get used to it. We are not obligated to like you, admire you, follow you, or envy you. We have our own lives, and we don’t need yours.

Get out of our faces, because we are sick of your hatred, sick of your warmongering, sick of your gun-nut massacres, sick of your lame, lame ‘comedy’ shows, sick of your worthless movie industry, sick of your boasting, and sick of your lies.

Russia has a terrible Communist history, with the tradition of radical, hateful animosity toward the West. It has finally emerged from this Hell, but in difference from the (previously Nazi) Germany, without the Western help.

It does appreciate today to be included in the current international working structures, alongside the USA and China, but it has no interest in the Western civilization as THE model and, even less, as THE ideal. And it might be right, taking into account the international disasters created and maintained by the USA, going its lonely way into the lion’s maw of the violent national and international future.

When one objectively looks at the world, unlike Maxxy, you find a Western society in both financial and moral decline, a system that is corrupt from head to toe and fools like this kid completely caught up in the globalist propoganda.

The US and its allies (AKA the financial elite) run the world through the financial system and uninformed commentaries like this quoting the perpetrators of these crimes serve no purpose at all except to their financial masters.

Wake up from your hypnosis my friend and get with the real program that is going on in the world.

Such countries can tend to be VERY dangerous, wanting to strike out at others to prove their worth to themselves. Beware of Russia.

Joining the WTO means nothing since the creation of the China strategy. You just do whatever you want, wait for someone to find the balls to say something about it, deny it and call for an “investigation”, drag your feet in court, claim you’re going to fix it and then drag your feet doing that too. You can buy years of illegal subsidies doing this. I predict Russia will be even more blatant in doing this.
