Honored Reader,
from my point of view, a worthwhile
addition to the geo-political events of these days.

in love

Washington’s plan to seize Ukraine and to evict Russia
from its Black Sea naval base has come amiss. 
But to turn around Lenin’s quote, “two steps forward, 
one step back.” Do you remember all the tough talk coming 
from John Kerry, the White House Fool, Hilary Clinton, and 
the lickspittle Merkel about the harsh sanctions that would
“badly damage” the Russian economy unless Russia prevented 
the referendum vote in Crimea? Well, it was all bullshit, more 
hot air from the White House sock puppet and the lickspittle 
German chancellor who is a disgrace to the German nation. 
As the Russians kept telling John Kerry, sanctions on Russia 
would destroy Europe and do little damage to Russia.
I wish the Russians had kept this to themselves. I was 
looking forward to the Washington morons destroying 
NATO by closing down the European economy.

Of course, after pretending that they were macho tough guys, 
something that Washington’s prostitute media could hype as 
sanctions had to be imposed, so Washington came up with 
sanctions, not on Russia, but on eleven individuals: the 
deposed Ukrainian president, an advisor to the deposed 
president, 2 Crimean officials, and 7 Russians.
The choice of the officials is an utter mystery. 
The seven Russians are a Putin aid, a Putin adviser, 
four members of the Russian parliament (Duma) and a 
deputy prime minister. What any of these people had to 
do with the referendum in Crimea, no one knows.

Moreover, the sanctions only apply to foreign bank 
accounts that these 11 individuals might have outside Russia. 
Most likely, that means only the deposed Ukrainian president, 
if we are to believe all the propaganda about him. Other 
reports say that the sanctions are only for the next six months.

If the Washington and EU criminals steal any money from 
these persons, the Russian central bank can replenish their 
stolen accounts.
The people who decided that Crimea would disassociate 
from Ukraine and return to Russia were the people themselves. 
Under the wording of Obama’s stupid sanctions, his sanctions 
should apply to the Crimean people who voted to disassociate 
from the US stooge government in Kiev.
Additionally, Obama’s sanctions apply to himself and 
to his regime and to its NATO puppets as it was the West 
that overthrew the elected government of Ukraine, not 
Russia or Crimea. The Americans, of course, never apply 
law to themselves.
In other words, the sanctions are totally meaningless. 
Yet, the White House Fool declared: “If Russia continues 
to interfere in Ukraine, we stand ready to impose further 
Obama’s hypocrisy makes a person want to puke. 
It is the White House Fool who is interfering in Ukraine. 
It was Washington that financed and organized the 
overthrow of the elected Ukraine government, using well 
organized and well armed Neo-Nazis to intimidate the 
unarmed police and ruling party, thus clearing the way 
for Washington to set up an unelected government of 
its well-paid stooges.
What the incompetent White House Fool overlooked is 
that southern and eastern Ukraine are Russian, not 
Ukrainian, so the fool’s coup has caused Crimea to depart 
and is causing widespread protests in eastern Ukraine 
against Washington’s stooge unelected government in Kiev. 
Washington’s stooge Kiev government has appointed unelected 
Ukrainian multibillionaire oligarchs, who have their own private 
security forces, as mayors of the Russian cities to put down 
the protests. If the oligarchs use violence against the Russian 
people, the likely result will be that the Russian Army will 
take control of eastern Ukraine, which in every essential 
way is Russian.

If eastern Ukraine returns to Russia, Washington will 
be left with the ultra-nationalists of western Ukraine, 
people who fought for Hitler during World War 2. The EU 
doesn’t want ultra-nationalists as the EU is busy stamping 
out nationalism and the sovereignty of European countries. 
Nevertheless, Washington will have gained a strategic 
advantage over Moscow, as Washington can place anti-ballistic
missile and other military bases on western Ukraine’s border 
with Russia, thus completing Washington’s encirclement of 
Russia with hostile military and missile bases.

Russia will neutralize the US bases by targeting them 
with Iskander missiles, which cannot be intercepted by ABMs.
All that the White House Fool will have achieved is to further 
make clear to Russia, and to China, that Washington has both 
on its target list, because both are in the way of Washington’s 
world hegemony.
One can only wonder why Putin doesn’t preempt the coming 
US military attack on Russia by destroying NATO economically
without firing a shot. All Putin needs to do is to cut Europe
off from energy. It would take Washington three years to 
create the capability to deliver US natural gas, achieved by 
fracking’s destruction of US water supplies, to Europe. By 
that time NATO governments would likely have been 
overthrown by mass unemployment and economic suffering. 
Putin could also seize all foreign assets in Russia and rapidly 
complete the arrangements with China, India, Brazil, and 
South Africa to abandon the use of the US dollar in
international settlements.

The US dollar as world reserve currency is the source of 
American imperialism. The five countries that comprise the 
BRICS have half of the world’s population. They can conduct 
their economic affairs without the dollar.
The world needs to understand that the neoconservative 
US government is the Third Reich on steroids. It is a
malevolent force with no sense of justice or respect for truth, 
law, or human life. Just ask the residents of Iraq, Afghanistan, 
Libya, Syria, Palestine, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Lebanon, 
Honduras, Venezuela, Cuba, Iran. Even the deluded western 
Ukrainians will soon catch on.

Obama himself declared that the US is “the exceptional nation.” 
This is the neoconservatives version of Hitler’s declaration that 
the German nation was exceptional and, therefore, above all 
others. The only difference between Washington and National 
Socialist Germany is that Washington has a far more powerful 
police state and nuclear weapons.
The hubris and arrogance that arises from Washington’s belief 
that it is the government of the “indispensable and exceptional 
nation” means Washington has no respect for any other country, 
nor for law whether its own or international. Washington can 
invade countries without cause, a war crime. Washington can 
kidnap and torture people, a crime under US and International 
law. Washington can ignore the self-determination of peoples, 
such as Crimeans. Who are mere Crimeans to vote on their
own future without Washington’s consent, without Washington 
determining the outcome? Washington declares the Crimean 
people’s self-determination “illegitimate and illegal,” and 
refuses to recognize self-determination, while pretending 
to be the home of “freedom and democracy.”

No government in human history can come close to 
the hypocrisy and malevolence of Washington. Armed 
with nuclear weapons and a military doctrine of pre-emptive 
nuclear first strike, Washington alone stands as the threat to 
life on earth.
