Senior Russian Diplomat: Moscow May Change Stance In Iranian Nuke Talks
CBSDC/AP ^ | 19 Mar 14 | Unknown

Posted on 03/19/2014 2:09:45 PM PDT by elhombrelibre

A senior Russian diplomat says Moscow may change its stance in the Iranian nuclear talks amid tensions with the West.

Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov was quoted Wednesday as saying by the Interfax news agency that Russia didn’t want to use the Iranian nuclear talks to “raise stakes,” but may have to do so in response to the actions by the United States and the European Union.

The statement is the most serious threat of retaliation by Moscow after the U.S. and the EU announced sanctions against Russia over the Ukrainian crisis.

Great news for Putinistas, Putin cheerleaders, wretches and others too brain dead to understand that Putin is a grave threat to the USA and anyone hoping to sustain really freedom.

Bear in mind, if you can stop praising Putin for a second and hoping he kills the Jewish/Neo-Nazis in Ukraine, that Putin is the MAN who is making Iran’s nuclear bomb a reality.

The disaster was when the American people showed they were so depraved they would elect the Obamanation, who reflected their depravity back to them. These are the consequences.

Putin a grave threat to us? Lol
The REAL threat is the obamanation which has allowed the us to be seen as weak and unwilling to act because it’s leadership no longer believes in the core principles that once guided us in the world.

“If you want peace, prepare for war.”
- Clausewitz

Obama is doing the reverse

This would just put Putin and Obama on the same side of the issue. Obama is running interference for the Iranians and making sure they get the money and time they need to finish the bomb. The only advantage Putin's stance would have is that it would be out in the open. Obama is going to just string the US and the Western world along until the public announcement of a nuclear armed Iran and maybe an announcement mushroom cloud over Tel Aviv. Israel needs to end this farce yesterday.

Roger that. America is finished. The America that was, is no longer. America has been taken over by the 1960 radicals and the voting public is now a bunch of whiners, who sit on their collective butts collecting free checks while they watch stupid reality TV. The working America, that got up and went to work every day, earned an honest living, paid their fair taxes, elected decent leaders, lived good lives, honest lives, is GONE. It will never come back. We of faith pray for a revival in America, but I don’t see it ever happening. After 9-11 people ran to the churches and asked God to help us. It was not a repentant help us, but a protect my sorry butt, but I am not giving you anything in return. No, America is gone. Over the edge, into the tank, into the dust bind of history. The first chance the Russians and the Red Chinese get to bury us, they will. I think, in the end, that is what will happen.

Just seeing his sorry face makes me want to puke. I have not disliked a politician ever in my life. I thought Klintons and Jimmuh Karter were bad, but this butt face takes the cake.

By the way, Si vis pacem, para bellum precedes Clauswitz by about 1500 years. It’s embarrassing seeing that conservatives can be blithe about Iran with nukes, cheerleaders for Putin (Putinistas), and philistines about history.

All along the road to Ezekiel 38 and Gog-Magog

It sure looks that way. War is most likely coming soon to Israel. It could be the prophesied Psalm 83 War, or a war that sets up the Ezekiel 38 War.

All the nations listed in Scripture for the Psalm 83 War are nations immediately bordering Israel. If she defeated those nations, and expanded her territory to more of Israel's Biblical borders, it is becoming increasingly apparent that the nations hostile to Israel would look to the reemerged Russia to aid them in their invasion (hence, we could see the much larger prophesied Ezekiel 38 War to follow).

These are the borders of Israel as laid out by God Himself in Genesis:

Another look:

These are the Psalm 83 nations who attack Israel:

A possible interpretation of the Gog and Magog invaders:

And what does America do? Will she aid Israel? No. From a news wire story posted 55 minutes ago:

Kerry Demands Public Apology From Israeli DM For Verbally Assaulting Obama’s Foreign Policy

If I were writing a Hollywood script, with a cast of villains, I could not author a more clear role for evildoers than Kerry and Obama.

First blood moon coming next month at the beginning of Passover:

Let us all pray for Israel. The God of Abraham is always at work.

"You will arise and have pity on Zion; it is the time to favor her; the appointed time has come."

Psalm 102:13

The miscalculation was to violently overthrow the freely elected government in Ukraine, thereby posing a threat to Russia’s vital interests, at the same time that we need Russian help on a lot of issues, including Iran.

Now lots of other problems can develop unfortunately.

Just remember this is all by design. Obama’s goal, long before he ever became president, is to weaken our country and promote other countries to balance our power. This is going according to plan.

I guess the key question from Ezekiel 38 is this:

“‘Have you come to take plunder?”

Now what exactly does Israel have to “plunder?”

I know the usual answer is they will have a great oil or gas find, but Russia has that too and so do the Arab ME countries (most of them at least). So for me, the above about what is to be plundered is key.

Surprised? Don't be! And hey, did you see:
Obama is doing TWO fundraisers for the Democrats in Florida this week, partying it up with the 1%...and he turned in his NCAA bracket to ESPN! So let's ignore that nuclear stuff, baby...party time!!

Let's tell the truth: Putin is doing what he is doing because HE KNOWS THERE IS WEAKNESS IN AMERICAN LEADERSHIP.

I also believe, whole heartedly, that if Mitt Romney were in the Oval Office, these actions--if Putin took them at all--would have been followed by real, true, consequences.

My gut feeling, though, is that Putin wouldn't have done anything like this...because Romney, whatever else he was, wasn't promising to be "flexible" for Putin.

It wouldn’t be my first choice for sound strategic doctrine. Russia is already building reactors for the Iranians. And anyone with a map and a set of dividers can see how much of Russia will be within the Iranian range circles before anything in the U.S. will be.

I posted on another thread regarding the same subject that it looks like it’s coming down to neo-Eurasianist ideology as the guiding impetus to Russian policy.

You need to understand neo-Eurasianism, which seems to be, more or less, the guiding philosophy behind what we’re seeing now.

As an example:

-The book (The Foundations of Geopolitics) stresses the “continental Russian-Islamic alliance” which lies “at the foundation of anti-Atlanticist strategy”. The alliance is based on the “traditional character of Russian and Islamic civilization”.

-Iran is a key ally. The book uses the term “Moscow-Tehran axis”.

-Armenia has a special role and will serve as a “strategic base” and it is necessary to create “the [subsidiary] axis Moscow-Erevan-Teheran”. Armenians “are an Aryan people ... [like] the Iranians and the Kurds”.

-Azerbaijan could be “split up” or given to Iran.

-Georgia should be dismembered. Abkhazia and “United Ossetia” (which includes Georgia’s South Ossetia) will be incorporated into Russia. Georgia’s independent policies are unacceptable.

Amongst other things. (I should note that ‘Foundations of Geopolitics’ was written before Erdogan and the AKP assumed power in Turkey, so it’s possible that ideas regarding Turkey may have altered somewhat. They seem to be siding with the Eurasianists; I tend to ignore Erdogan, and pay more attention to the Turkish Foreign Minister.)

‘The Foundations of Geopolitics: The Geopolitical Future of Russia’ is a geopolitical book by Alexander Dugin. The book has had a large influence within the Russian military, police, and statist foreign policy elites and is used as a textbook in the General Staff Academy of Russian military.

I seriously believe that Dugin’s ideas - and those of the neo-Eurasianists - are the guiding ideology of Russia.

Operation IVY (1952)
https://archive.org/details/OperationIVY1952

“Above all, we should acknowledge that the collapse of the Soviet Union was a major geopolitical disaster of the Century. As for the Russian nation, it became a genuine drama. Tens of millions of our co-citizens and compatriots found themselves outside Russian territory. Moreover, the epidemic of disintegration infected Russia itself” (Vladimir Putin, Annual Address to the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, April 25, 2005).

Nuclear exchanges between nations might commence, after Republicrats elect Hillary in all of their Euro-political triumph. They're so smart at their work in partnerships with governments to keep the debt recirculating. That's why they're rich.
