The Empire Prepares To Strike Back
The Silent Majority ^ | 12-09-11 | J.D. Longstreet

The UK’s “The Guardian” has an excellent article by Simon Tisdall entitled: “Putin prepares the Russian empire to strike back.” (HERE)

Mr. Tisdall, right at the outset of his article, states what to Americans, on the right side of the political spectrum, is obvious. He says: “The reincarnation of the current PM as president poses a challenge to western powers for which they seem ill-prepared.” Mr. Tisdall is absolutely “spot-on.”

The recreation of the Russian Empire is another reason the United States MUST relieve Mr. Obama of his seat in the Oval Office and replace him with a realist – a conservative realist.

Remember when Obama was so proud of his “reset” of Russian/American relations? It seems as if it was only yesterday. It was so ridiculous, that when I read it, I actually laughed aloud. (I assure you, it WAS an incredulous guffaw.) The naiveté of the Obama Administration is just incredible.

Russia is an enigma to the left. They STILL believe that socialist Russia had it RIGHT – and they believe that THEY, the American left especially, can actually make socialism work if only they get the chance. They remain befuddled by the collapse of the old socialist Soviet Union, anchored (and enforced) by Russia.

Russia has an inferiority complex the size of, well, Russia. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia has felt naked and vulnerable. There was, for a very short time, a vacuum of leadership. And we all know that nature abhors a vacuum.

Always, prowling around the edges of a leadership vacuum are the political predators ready to pounce and claim the leadership role for themselves. Often these “alpha” types are more than ready to enforce their claim with force of will and/or force of arms —

Got it right. This article is spot on. Obama must be voted out ASAP not for The USA but for the rest of the world. When France has to take leadership and we dis old allies like the UK and Israel—something is wrong.

When the old Soviet Union began its collapse in 90-91 I told others in my unit that it would come back again in some form. I told them that the bear was only hibernating and regrouping. All of that crap about a “new era of world peace” and a “peace dividend” fell away quickly over the years. You have to remember that the Soviet Union as an entity did not spring up when the Russian revolution began; it took years of fighting and infighting to begin piecing it and holding it together and it became an empire during and after WWII when it brought in the eastern bloc.

Our enemies outside this country will want to take advantage of out wekened state before the 2012 election.
