John Kerry - Putin failed to develop a proper strategy to stabilize the situation in Chechnya
Pravda ^ | October 29, 2004 | Yevgeni Bay

Posted on 10/29/2004 12:05:43 PM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

The issue of relations with Russia takes an important position in the foreign policy program of the Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry. Kerry's advisor for Russia, Graham Allison, from Harvard University says that the program outlines the priorities of the policy with Russia. If John Kerry is elected president, he will pay special attention to the anti-terrorist struggle. Russia is said to play USA's most important partner at this point.

According to Allison, Kerry believes that Russia's wish to build the modern democratic society with market economy is important not only for Russia in particular, but also for the USA and for the rest of the world. However, Allison added, Putin's actions taken after the hostage crisis in Beslan showed that the Russian president wanted to put an end to democracy in Russia. The actions, for example, include the abolishment of free gubernatorial elections, the restriction of freedom of speech and press. Putin used to be open about his disagreement with the US-led incursion in Iraq. It was a correct position tot take for other leaders of friendly states. If Kerry takes the office of the US president, he will not be silent about the mistakes that Putin makes in home or foreign policies. Those mistakes, Allison said, take Russia away from its goal to become a respectable member of the democratic society.

John Kerry believes that Putin failed to develop a proper strategy to stabilize the situation in Chechnya, like Bush failed to find the correct stance as far as Iraq and the anti-terrorist struggle is concerned. When Bush stated to US military men that the mission in Iraq had been accomplished, it was nothing but wishful thinking. Putin also informed the Russian nation about the normalization of life in Chechnya. Graham Allison is certain that one should trace and destroy terrorists, although it is also vital to take active measures to deprive them of their financial sources and of the influence they exert on population.

John Kerry's advisor for Russia believes that Putin was wrong, when he said that terrorists would benefit greatly from Bush's failure to win the US presidential election. Allison said that Putin could probably promise Bush to support him at the election. However, the advisor added, Putin's statement brought more harm than good. Neither US intelligence agents nor independent experts believe that attacks against American soldiers in Iraq have something to do with the election campaign in the USA, Graham Allison stated.

Don't worry Kerry has a PLAN and will discuss it at a summit he will call, that no one will attend.

Kerry has been in D.C. for 2 decades and not once has he addressed any of these issues, national or international ones. Now he has a bunch of opinions and plans. I am so ashamed of my relatives who are voting for this phoney.

Does Kerry honestly believe he is the most intelligent person on the planet? If you listen to him NO ONE is competent except him.

The Putin Administration is a MISERABLE FAILURE. In this world there are two Russias. One Russia with a low class, and another Russia with no class. This is unacceptable, and WE CAN DO MORE.

I thought Kerry was going to get along with all the world leaders, he has kicked the heads of Portugal, Iraq and now Russia in the balls when does he pick them up and start being a diplomat?

So what is this now? Is this pitiful excuse of a Senator now running for Premier of Russia, too?

There are those that do, and there are those that just complain and back-bite. Senator Kerry falls in the latter group. Another comment.....lately, he's taken to saying, "I will fight for you -- vote for me." This is the same crap that ALGORE was spouting near the end. What he's really saying is that he'll 'fight OTHER AMERICANS for you' to give you something that you don't deserve.

Pravda was and continues to be the mouthpiece of the Communist Party in the old Soviet Union, the remnants of which are looking for a way to reseize power today. Kerry has already shown that he is willing to try and tinker with other countries' internal politics (he proved this when he sent his sister down to Australia to try and throw John Howard out of office), and he hasn't even beeen elected yet! Is he giving aid and comfort to the commies in Russia, promising to help depose Putin and put them back in power if he wins?

Of course he does - everyone else is an idiot. Sounds kind of like...Al Gore! Maybe John Kerry is actually Al Gore! They both exude the same arrogance. Hm...a conspiracy is hatched.

John Kerry. Kerry's advisor for Russia, Graham Allison, from Harvard University...

Okay, another airhead elitist...

However, Allison added, Putin's actions taken after the hostage crisis in Beslan showed that the Russian president wanted to put an end to democracy in Russia.

Stop right there, Allison is a complete idiot. Beslan was a massacre of Russian school children, along with grandparents and teachers. That %#@*!$@ Allison is criticizing Putin's actions afterwards?

I get the impression that Putin would rather see Bush than Kerry in the Oval Office, 2005.

I think Putin's endorsement made Kerry mad.

I don't think it's a good idea to make a megalomaniac mad.

Yet he exhibited zero leadership qualities in 20 years in the US Senate. Go figure, eh. And his Vietnam record of leadership is a fraud.

That's just about right. Have you ever heard him say ANYTHING about what he did in the Senate for 20 years? No way I would hire this guy - maybe to clean the gutters, but that's about it.

It must be nice to have the whole solar system revolving around you. John Kerry, the Life Force of the universe.

No "self esteem" problem here.

This is getting pathetic.

Bush is going to win this.

He's fighting terrorists while waging a super-human fight against the MSM/Kerry assault and staying ahead of both.

I can't believe the restraint Bush shows. I'd would have been ripping off heads long ago. Of course Kerry's continual attacking of Bush is like a mosquito going after a 747.

But still I feel like I need to go break rocks or something just to relieve the tension.

Curious minds want to know - what is the condition to be a "respectable member of the democratic society". To follow Milosevic lead and to let foreign troops in? Is the transfer of the rest of national assets into hands of "reform minded oligarchs" a requirement?

Does Kerry want Putin to negotiate with the terrorists and give up to their demands? Does he want Putin to negotiate with their bosses like bin Laden? Is he going to nominate General Clark to enforce his expectations?

I think Putin's endorsement [of Bush] made Kerry mad. I don't think it's a good idea to make a megalomaniac mad.

I think Kerry was first with his idea of Final Solution to the "Serbian problem" in Kosovo and treating Russia like Clinton treated Serbia. Putin only reacted.

As I posted before, with evidence, I believe that Kerry HATES Slavs!!!! That includes not only the Orthodox ones, but Roman Catholic Poles like you. (He's probably too ignorant to know that some Slavs are Lutheran--if he knew, for example, the good, orthodox, and mainly pro-Serbian Slovak Lutherans, he would probalby hate them with genocidal fury the way he and his backers hate the Serbs.)

Kerry's backers of the Soros/Halfbright/Biden/Holbrooke school, think that they ARE the "international community", and make "standards" for what countries are admitted to the club of "civilized" nations. They are of course BLATANT "human rightser" imperialist elitists. The Soros/Halfbright/Biden/Holbrookes, if they get into power through sKerry, plan to commit genocide against the Serbs, to break up Russia, and to use the islamists (including the Chechen bandits and the KLA savages, as well as the Bin Laden and Iranian types) as their goon enforcers!!!!

Putin knows this very well, which is why he is backing Bush. Those Americans who want REAL civilization, freedom, and true human rights should vote Bush as well.

In 20 years France will be Islamic and native French will be applying for the refugee visas in USA (as Lebanese Christians were doing for some time). So this will be a purely a Muslim summit.

One good thing - cheese and pastry will get much better here!
