Putin and the tall wall against western mischief


Vladimir Putin must be doing something right because the USA does not want him to become President of the Russian Federation.  Whatever the USA does not want will be good for Russia, whatever the USA wants will do harm. It is as simple as that.

No higher mathematics is needed to figure out that Vladimir Putin presents a major obstacle to US world dominance.

The three allied countries Russia, China and Iran hold a significant part of the Eurasian landmass, forming a "tall wall against western mischief," as the Iranian media Press TV pointedly formulated.

With Putin as President, the West can expect Russia turning further towards Asia. He already announced that he will continue strengthening ties with the republics of the post-Soviet space and cooperate closely with SCO countries.

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) was founded 2001 in Shanghai, People's Republic of China. Current members are China and Russia as main driving forces, together with Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.
India, Iran, Mongolia and Pakistan have observer status. Belarus and Sri Lanka are dialogue partners, while the status of Turkmenistan is that of guest attendance.

SCO countries cooperate in security, holding regular joint military exercises in Eurasia.  As Iranian writer Hamid Golpira remarked, "control of the Eurasian landmass is the key to global domination, and control of Central Asia is the key to control of the Eurasian landmass." The SCO states are paying close attention to everything pertaining to the Eurasian landmass.China Daily wrote, "SCO member countries have the ability and responsibility to safeguard the security of the Central Asian region." Consequently, Russian and Chinese forces control the Eurasian periphery on a permanent basis. All SCO members except the People's Republic of China hold membership in the Eurasian Economic Community, with joint energy projects in the oil and gas sector, exploration of new hydrocarbon reserves and water resources. SCO Interbank has been created to be independent from international banking systems. Putin said at the SCO summit in 2007, "We now clearly see the defectiveness of the monopoly in world finance and the policy of economic selfishness. Russia will take part in changing the global financial structure so that it will be able to guarantee stability and prosperity in the world." Russia and China engage in a special relationship with many common economic and military interests, besides sharing a long land border. Both countries signed a "Treaty of Good-Neighborliness and Friendly Cooperation" in 2001.The main fields of cooperation are aircraft manufacturing, biotechnology, computer science, medicine, and nanotechnology.  On the 23rd of November 2010, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and China's Premier Wen Jiabao agreed on bilateral trade in their national currencies, ruble and yuan.  China is Russia's client for oil and gas as well as military exports, making up 30 percent of Russian foreign sales. With Putin as President of Russia, EU support for aggressive NATO plans will be curbed, as it is seen to be weakening already due to lack of fuel and funds.Putin might use pipeline diplomacy to knot the tie with EU. After the disastrous outcome of EU slapping sanctions on Iran and literally sitting in the cold, without Iranian oil, EU leaders will certainly think twice before angering Russia. If Russian gas supplies are cut off, the lights will go out in Europe.Oil prices are soaring high already. Should gas prices follow this upward trend, the EU might be pushed into the abyss of bankruptcy. It is already standing dangerously close to the edge of the cliff."Can you imagine what I would do if I could do all I can," Sun Tzu asked in his famous treaty for military strategy.Putin is an educated and well-read man. Besides Russian literature on military strategy, he might also have studied the works of the Chinese General and military strategist Sun Tzu who lived in the sixth century B.C.Putin emphasized several times that he would never use Russian gas sales as means of sanctioning the EU; yet somehow he managed to give his words such a supple twist that a variety of nuances in understanding were produced, reaching from calming appeasement to subtle menace. The western partners who have studied Sun Tzu's work will certainly know what he means."Invincibility lies in the defense," Sun Tzu knew. Putin seems to know this stratagem as well. He is modernizing and strengthening the Russian Armed Forces. Russian plans for the defense industry could sound like saber-rattling in western ears, but are deemed necessary for deterrence and Russia's safety, Putin pointed out. Russia has always been a superpower since its old days as an Empire. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Russia sank to its lowest point of no return, but has risen again, like a phoenix from the ashes, to its almost old status of wealth and glory.This has been no small feat. Russians are thankful to Vladimir Putin for having given them back their pride in Russia, their self-confidence as citizens of a great nation with a long history and proud traditions."You have to believe in yourself," Sun Tzu wrote. Putin certainly believes in himself, but above all, he believes in Russia. In the eyes of many Russians, Putin has become the symbol of Russia's return to power. Putin as President will toughen Russia's geostrategic stance, according to Mexican analyst Alfredo Jalife, who wrote that Putin "engineered Russia's geostrategic resurrection".The fury of the western mainstream media may be interpreted as a sure indicator of Putin's sustained success in strengthening Russia and "reorganizing the world from a multi-polar perspective," according to Jalife."The highest form of generalship is to balk the enemy's plans," Sun Tzu said. Washington's plans of world dominance will definitely be balked by Russia, a prospect that a great part of the non-aligned world is cheering. Putin is a "thorn in Washington's flesh," German-American analyst F. William Engdahl wrote."Opportunities multiply as they are seized," Sun Tzu advised.The tandem Putin - Medvedev will seize the opportunity of continuing their successful cooperation with switched roles, after Putin has won the presidential elections on March 4.This is another point of discontent for western observers who judge the role switch as being undemocratic. Washington is infuriated by the fact that Putin has a different way of defining democracy.To Vladimir Putin, it is not undemocratic at all to switch jobs with Dmitri Medvedev, but a very practicable solution. "Democracy East meets Democracy West."Putin and Medvedev are both members of United Russia and form an inseparable tandem. Washington is enervated because it has not succeeded in sowing discord between the two top Russians. Putin's training as a former KGB officer might partly be responsible for his clever toughness. In part, it is certainly due to his innate character. He appears to be an intelligent, level-headed, self-disciplined man, a true Russian patriot with a positive vision for the future of his homeland. He can neither be swayed nor bought. "Move, if it is to your advantage; bide your time if it is not," Sun Tzu admonished. Russia has been biding time. Now it seems that Russia will move, and the world is very much in suspense, regarding the direction of Russian moves.We shall wait and see. Russia with Putin as President might have plenty of interesting surprises in store.

No preaching needed from western quacks and charlatans


Vladimir Putin is not a man who can be bought, fooled, hoodwinked or silenced. That, in itself, is the major reason the western media, on behalf of its paymasters, seeks to demonize him and question his legitimacy as the next President of Russia.

Vladimir Putin knows a site more of what democracy is about than all the western leaders combined. No rational person sees the definition of democracy as "willing to do what you are told by Washington and / or Tel Aviv." Thus is the western concept of democracy, coupled with bombs from 30,000 feet up, bullets and blackmail.

Violence and force are what western-style democracy is all about. I am afraid that Russia and the world community are not receptive to that concept.

A democracy does not fund and support terrorists.

A democracy does not tell an offending group of armed insurrectionists to not negotiate

  under any circumstances.

A democracy does not go around expecting violence to end when they are covertly and

  overtly supplying arms to one side.

A democracy does not say NO to free and fair supervised elections (as they did in Libya

  and are doing in Syria).

All the insolent pig-headed calling of a true democratic procedure a mockery will not hold water.

The western media and leaders have been doing plenty of that.

America is now a crypto-fascist state, masquerading as a democracy. The European Union is a crypto-fascist entity, elected by no one, and certainly not acting according to the will of the people. No one elected NATO, either, to carry out foreign policy and world policeman duties.As the next President of the Russian Federation said, "Suspension of the West's military aid to the Syrian opposition will make the rebel fighters sit down at the negotiating's unacceptable to support one party to the conflict until it wipes out the other party." Pure and simple logic, obviously lost on the hypocritical, lying fascist western leaders, particularly the USA and despicable Hillary war zone Clinton.Vladimir Putin also points out that authorities should react quickly to the people's demands and remarks that not only have they made their demands known in Russia, but throughout all the countries of Europe and the USA.The Occupy Wall Street movement has spread like wildfire. All of this is basically a protest against the uneven distribution of wealth in the world, that one percent lives like stuffed pigs while the rest have to go without, hungry, starving, homeless, jobless, without health care.The west most certainly cannot teach anyone about freedom, democracy, liberty, equality and justice. Their total disrespect for international law has been duly noted, as well as their inability to keep agreements they make.But make no mistake, the western media has already been in full gear to discredit the Russian elections taking place tomorrow. They are so confident, arrogant and despicable that they have started the process well in advance.However, this makes it much easier to awaken more and more people to their true demonic, evil, dishonest nature.It would be wise to ignore their screaming, their lies, their machinations, their utterly repulisve noise, as they march in lockstep to their orders from the fascist privileged stuffed pig elites.Perhaps these media pigs would like to discuss Florida and Ohio.. and hanging, dimpled or pregnant chads or how only someone rich, with rich backers and the backing of strong lobbies can be elected in a most undemocratic two party system, where third party candidates don't stand a prayer of serious consideration.Vladimir Putin is the right man to lead Russia. Russia will serve as the vanguard of true democracy under President Vladimir Putin and the anti-fascist world movement which is gaining strength every day.

Delayed Obama call speaks volumes to Russia and Putin

Late congratulations from Obama, at last, he phoned Putin...

by MK Bhadrakumar, Indian Punchline

When you delay for a whole week to get on the red telephone and enter the number, you have already said much. Especially if it was supposed to be a congratulatory phone call. The delay tells the caller that you, in fact, are not bursting with happiness, that it is just a matter of following the rules of protocol, communicating with someone with whom you may be forced to negotiate.

There is no doubt that President Barack Obama said much in missing an entire week, from Monday-Friday, on the last working day of the week, and only then calling Vladimir Putin, elected president of Russia, to present congratulations on his election victory on March 4th.

In short, Obama made it clear that he was in no hurry, and therefore had little interest in that election. However, Moscow understood the message very well.

Obama's western counterparts had already phoned a long time ago. Of course, the State Department spoke out immediately after the election day on the 4th. Interestingly, the State Department congratulated the Russian people. Putin's name is not even mentioned in the declaration.

Washington made it implicit that U.S. interests will guide its policy towards Russia, that men make no difference. Then the State Department began to demand investigations into irregularities in the elections - despite the fact that the results pointed to "a clear winner with an absolute majority of votes." In short, Washington continues to give "sermons" about the slow progress in Russia on western-style liberal "democracy."Washington was mindful of the public reaction in Russia. It must have been finally convinced and hugely disappointed that there would be no 'color revolution' there. Even the western media, which shows démodé (old fashioned) an archaic attitude, with a Cold War-style hostility against Putin, conceded, unwillingly, that anti-Putin demonstrations are by day getting more and more depleted.This being the case, as one can suppose, Obama decided that he would have to go back on the offensive. The demonstration by the White House was cold, without even a trace of the heat that is always seen on those occasions considered festive, such as elections, in the world of "democracy."Even prime minister David Cameron, of Great Britain, was more personal and warm, in spite of the fact that relations between Great Britain and Rússia have reached temperatures below zero.The reference to "future cooperation" in light of the admission of Russia as a member of the World Trade Organization is interesting. Has Obama promised, yet again, that he will work for the cancellation of the Jackson-Vanik amendment to the trade embargo in 1974? Now, with Russia admitted as a member of the WTO, such an amendment is even more untenable.Again, the differences between the U.S. and Russia on Syria and on the missile defense shield surfaced. And there is a clear reference to "an obstacle to better relations." But Iran and Afghanistan were listed as areas of cooperation. Hmm... Apparently, the 'reset' is very selective.Putin will visit the U.S. at the G-8 meeting in May at Camp David. And Russia was also invited to the NATO summit in Chicago in May. Moscow responded that the decision to go or not to go will depend on advances in the discussions on the missile shield. But the official 'declaration' does not mention the NATO meeting.Even though Obama took so long to welcome the election of Putin, the U.S. will be among the first countries that Putin will visit on trips abroad that he will make after returning to the Kremlin. But is that to be his first landing? My guess is that Putin will send a message, also, by visiting some of the former Soviet republics, before heading to Camp David.This has left no doubt: Obama made it quite clear that Russia is not a priority of U.S. foreign policy. Moscow understood. It was a phone call that several others were also waiting for. People, for example, in Beijing, Tehran, Damascus and Islamabad.
