Not only has this POS ( I am referring to Putin), outperformed and clearly beaten the US, now he's engaging in classic PRAVDA propaganda backup to his policies.
He is on a roll and why shouldn't he be? He KO’d Obama, 30 seconds into Round One.
Now comes the direct appeal to the American people...to hell with you Putin and when you descend down to Hades, take the POTUS with you.
Putin floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee.
I see it now. Obama on Russian TV; My fellow Comrades....
International politics makes for some strange positions. obamber arguing for American exeptionalism ?
Anyway, thats where vlady lost me.
If only we had a leader.
That said, don't think for a minute that you can now be "king" of America. Try to step into that role and the still exceptional, free, American people will give your cute little chest a titty twister to remember. Thanks again. And have a nice day.
"This internal conflict, fueled by foreign weapons supplied to the opposition, is one of the bloodiest in the world."
Putin is pointing the finger at the United States under the Obama Syndicate. The conflict in Syria is being fueled by U.S. supplied weapons. This is the area of illicit arms trafficking. It is this type of covert action that has set world opinion against the United States. There has been a move to curb the proliferation of military-style small arms to insurgent forces and other non-state actors. On 2 April 2013, the General Assembly adopted the landmark Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) to address the following:
"the international trade in conventional arms, from small arms to battle tanks, combat aircraft and warships. The treaty will foster peace and security by putting a stop to destabilising arms flows to conflict regions. It will prevent human rights abusers and violators of the law of war from being supplied with arms. And it will help keep warlords, pirates, and gangs from acquiring these deadly tools."
This is why Putin states,
"We need to use the United Nations Security Council and believe that preserving law and order in todays complex and turbulent world is one of the few ways to keep international relations from sliding into chaos. The law is still the law, and we must follow it whether we like it or not. Under current international law, force is permitted only in self-defense or by the decision of the Security Council. Anything else is unacceptable under the United Nations Charter and would constitute an act of aggression."
I believe under the definition of "force" comes the idea of weapons proliferation. It is the heart of Fast and Furious, the Benghazi scandal and its coverup. It is this action by the Obama Syndicate that is out of step with UN law and it could wind up blowing up in Zer0's face.
" There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. Their policies differ, too. We are all different, but when we ask for the Lords blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal."
I believe Vladimir Putin means to do good. I know he believes in Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. His father was a communist and atheist, but his mother was a devoted Russian Orthodox Christian. She had Vladimir baptized as an infant, and he attended church with her often. He attends church on a regular basis. Contrast this with the Obama family who rarely attend church.
I'm sure that Putin still misunderstands some things about the heart of American traditional beliefs.
However, it was a very mature and constructive communication.
Points made about who's who in terrorism are probably the most important part. It give credence to the Russian attempt to warn the US about the Boston bombers.
Not trashing Obama allows the American left to listen.
I see less posturing here than in nearly all American politicians, today.
Also, did he take a shot at Obama or America when he said this:
And I would rather disagree with a case he made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States policy is what makes America different. Its what makes us exceptional. It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. Their policies differ, too. We are all different, but when we ask for the Lords blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal.
Far be it from me to think that Obama considers America "great"...on the contrary, I believe Obama hates the Constitution, Christianity and capitalism.
What makes America great are those three things, not in that order.
Putin is wrong to think America is not exceptional...we are. Obama is wrong because he says we are exceptional, because he says this only to stroke his ego.
I reserve the right to oppose both Obama and Putin.
Putin’s Op-Ed and “appeal to the American people” says out loud what US State-controlled media dare not utter: Obama is too stupid to be U.S. President and an international leader. It is dangerous when an idiot takes the controls. It is very dangerous indeed when an idiot at the controls believes he is a genius.
Putin is no stranger to arrogance, but his is based on ruthless intelligence and longterm personal success. How galling it must be to see Obama strut about, chin jutted Il Duce-style, proclaiming himself exceptional, while he knows nothing about diplomacy and hypocritically jettisons the “international concensus” he used to champion whenever it disagrees with his jihadi agenda.
US arrogation of a unilateral right, even an obligation, to attack countries that suppress internal minorities (e.g., Chechens; Islamic militants) or even use WMD within their own borders, would be seen as an existential threat by Putin, and by China (which systematically suppresses Tibetans and Uighurs). Were Obama and Kerry too dim to know that before starting this fiasco? Do they have no experienced advisors? Or are they too arrogant to listen?
Zerobozo, Kerry, McAnial, and Grahaministry are now totally irrelevant in the real world outside of the beltway.
The chess player is taking the High Moral Ground and making Obama look like a the fool he is, and Obama can’t call him a Racist. We are being regulated to death, invaded by millions who are breaking our immigration laws but I dare not even get a parking ticket. And I’m sick and tired of being lied to, thieved from, and being spied on!
He has no respect whatsoever for Obama and this translates to no respect for the US.
Putin would never have written such editorial when GW Bush was president.
And I disagree with Drudge's bi-line. I do not believe he was mocking the US - I would expect any non American to hold the same opinion concerning American exceptionalism.
Putin is totally right on the above statement... Please God, let Hillary, Kerry and all the other liberal idiots understand the above truth...
The US Left is going nuts over this.
He has dared to speak some truth about Obama, and that simply cannot be allowed.
Putin takes leadership role. Putin makes Bambi look like a chump. Lots of headlines here.
