China must love this. Western nations continue to batter themselves to gain commercial benefits while China rakes in the pot.

What Ukraine needs is Putinism: a weird blend of war socialism, crony capitalism, and autocracy. Oh yeah, that was kind of like Milosevic’s reign in Serbia.

(Against Obama. Against Putin. Pro-freedom. Pro-US Constitution.)
We are so easily distracted, conditioned by decades of struggle against an enemy that no longer exists. While the European Union solidifies its socialist grip on Europe, we are led to believe that the real threat is a partially recovering Russia whose power is only a shadow of its former Soviet past. Anyone who listens to Daniel Hannan and Neil Farage should recognize that the real threat of tyranny comes from the unelected bureaucrats in Brussels who now rule by treaty above the constitutions of the EU's member states. The formerly sovereign nations of Europe, with their parliaments, courts and armies now subordinated to Brussels, will be powerless to halt the rise of next strongman. It is this threat that prompted English MEP Godfrey Bloom to shout "Ein volk, ein Reich, ein Fuhrer!" at the anti-democratic German MEP Martin Schulz -- and that was four years ago.
It is now the European Union which is on the offensive against Russia for the purpose of economic dominance, and we Americans are now mindlessly dancing to war drums pounded in Brussels and Strasbourg. How else does one explain the encircling advance of a once-defensive alliance to the western and southern borders of Russia itself? We are the muscle in this economic war for European dominance, and we continue to bankrupt ourselves for the benefit of others. America is being played.
