“If the rule you followed brought you to this, of what use was the rule?” - Cormac McCarthy, "No Country For Old Men"As a child of the late 1960's and 1970's, I was taught that the U.S.S.R. was evil and the U.S was good. It was the Russians and their cold-blooded leaders who wanted to destroy the world and "God's" country - good old "red, white and blue...baseball...apple pie...Chevrolet...yada yada yada" was here to save humanity.
But just like Obama and his band of Merry Democrats are now the blood-thirsty neocons running our God-forsaken country, it seems Russia has now assumed the role of global savior.
Shockingly, the NY Times published an editorial appeal by Vladimir Putin to the American public in which he pleads for caution with regard to how our country deals with the Syrian situation and he completely undresses the Obama regime and exposes it for what it is:
It is alarming that military intervention in internal conflicts in foreign countries has become commonplace for the United States. Is it in America’s long-term interest? I doubt it. Millions around the world increasingly see America not as a model of democracy but as relying solely on brute force, cobbling coalitions together under the slogan “you’re either with us or against us.”I was shocked the NY Times actually published this piece because, at some point during the Bush years, the NY Times transformed from a bastion of liberalism and intellectual critique into a war-mongering, neocon-promoting tabloid.
Here's Putin's piece and I urge everyone to read it carefully and think about it terms of just how rotten to the core the American Government has become: A Plea For Caution From Russia
