In China, Russia's Putin calls US a parasite

AP– 8 hrs ago

BEIJING (AP) — Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is likening the U.S. to a parasite following his meetings with Chinese leaders to push ahead energy deals and draw the once wary neighbors closer.

In an interview with Chinese state media released Tuesday, Putin said that the U.S. itself is not a parasite for the world economy but that its dollar monopoly is. Putin said his criticism was meant to help find a solution to problems in the world economy.

I suppose they forgot about the Spam and long underwear we gave them in WW II.

Headline says

‘In China, Russia’s Putin calls US a parasite’

Within a few sentence you read

‘Putin said that the U.S. itself is not a parasite for the world economy but that its dollar monopoly is’—

So he didn’t call the U.S. a parasite afterall....but to get your attention they have to make up a sensationalized headline, then deny the headline in the article.

This kind of brainwashing deceitfulness gets on my nerves...

We should have just let the Soviets reap the benefits of their failed Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, and when the Nazis invaded Mother Russia, just let them chase Stalin’s ass into the East until he was hanging by his fingernails at the docks in Vladivostok.

Patton was right, and FDR was too weak and senile at Yalta which is why we ended up with the post-WWII mess that we did.

While the US may be full of parasites, let’s see how Russia and especially China fare without American consumers and American investment.

The oil deal between Russia and China is the important economic news in the piece. Chinese production increases and inflation won’t be stopped by the squeezing of the West by those who recently stuffed our most risky treasuries after the downgrade of US debt. Crooks, crooks everywhere. It’s a currency fight waiting to be joined from our side. And in the end, natural resources and manufacturing will be recognized as being most essential.
