Comments on: Russia can only use the United States as an excuse for so long http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/12/29/russia-can-only-use-the-united-states-as-an-excuse-for-so-long/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Samantha-Rose http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/12/29/russia-can-only-use-the-united-states-as-an-excuse-for-so-long/#comment-1126830 Mon, 11 Jan 2016 05:10:39 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=45469#comment-1126830 “Obviously an imaginary piece of writing. When and if the Russian military shows up in Ukraine their done, finished, caput. As is the case in Syria, Russia has exposed the United Snakes, Turkey and the NATO gang of thieves as to what’s really going on there. The people of Crimea VOTED in mid-March 2014 to to secede from Ukraine and return to Russia. This guy obviously can’t get that straight. WESTERN PROPAGANDA continues,but will diminish only when the truth comes about. Horrible piece of writing.”

The Russian Military already has showed up in Crimea and Eastern Ukraine, the Russian government lied and later admitted that Russian Forces were in Crimea and in Luhansk and Donetsk, this was confirmed by the capture of numerous Russian soldiers by the Ukrainian military. Despite all its limitations and deficiencies, the Ukrainian Military is still here, they are holding the line. The Scottish Independence Referendum was free and fair, the referendums organized and held in Crimea, Luhansk and Donetsk had about as much legitimacy as a North Korean election.

You can only use this excuse so long as well.

Putin will be there as long as Uncle Sam keeps prodding the Russian bear, to which there will be no end. The US was born in adversity – with the Brits and the native Indians as enemies – so they can’t do without an enemy either.

Putin is certainly politically savvy within the Russian system, but his successes are more the outcome of high oil prices until recently, the distraction of the U.S. from the rise of the PRC on the world stage, (and in the U.S. face since early ‘2001), the entire time Putin has been in power, and, most importantly, the extremely weak, if not traitorous character and national security thinking and (in)actions of the obamanation, many other current and former Western leaders, and even the Bush empire’s and Clintons’ failure to put the nail in the communists’ coffins post-Soviet collapse, (as opposed to spending the supposed “peace dividend” on enlarging the U.S. federal bureaucracy, a pit nearly as black and bottomless in its gluttony as Putin’s/Russian leadership’s inferiority complex!
Putin’s agent obama is on his way out and the West, especially the U.S., has been awakened to Putin, so expect a re-set of the re-set in ‘2017, including actions against the evil empire’s clients, e.g. Iran. If oil’s collapse doesn’t wake up competing Russian players to oust Putin, there are certainly a lot of other forces that will work to that end, including ultimately the PRC, regardless of any covert alliance or détente they share.

Believe this is Mr. Lloyd’s Wiki biography. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Lloyd _%28journalist%29 My rule is to look up the background, ‘think tanks’ and academic associations and related organizations behind a contributor, here or in FT, WSJ, NY Times, or Guardian UK. As long as I know the bias, I take the writer’s views at face value and adjust as I see fit. Journalism should be enlightening (you’d think!), almost a 3rd person point of view with no ‘dog in the fight,’ so to speak. But guess that wouldn’t be so interesting, though :)
