Ukraine PM: Putin 'Has a Dream to Restore the Soviet Union'(LOL!)
Yahoo News ^ | April 20, 2014 | Dylan Stableford

Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk believes Russian President Vladimir Putin "has a dream to restore the Soviet Union" — and Putin realizing that dream would be disastrous for the rest of the world.

"Every day, he goes further and further,” Yatsenyuk said in an interview that aired Sunday on NBC's “Meet the Press.” “And God knows where is the final destination.”

That is the funniest thing I've ever heard. This Communist refrain, "I Had A Dream", uttered by Putin and fellow Communist, Doktuh Martin Luther King, that Putin thinks is some magical incantation to turn his imperialist power hungry aspirations into some political movement in the attainment of his "dream" that the Ukrainian People's Idealistic Freedom Dream will fulfill once it becomes part of Russia is so utterly naively dumb, it drops Putin down more than a few notches on the global Political Shrewdness score Card. How so very dumb, pathetic.

Soon, you'll see Ukrainians on YouTube singing "We Want Be Free", Putin as the recorded over lead singer.

Too late. The EUSSR beat him to it.

Putin’s “Dream” is of a greater Russia, NOT the return of the Soviet Union.

Putin is not trying to reestablish communism, where the state owns everything. His idea (and it is working so far), is to return Russia as a “World Power”. And doing that via the means the Communists were too ideological to do, like private enterprise, instead of state-direct production.

This really sounds like Obama administration-coached hysteria, to justify whatever comes next.

Remember the run-up to Libya, and the justifications for Egypt, Tunisia, and Syria?

Same playbook. Different victims.

If Putin really wanted to restore the Soviet Union, now would be the opportune moment for him to do so.

No one to stop him.

Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk believes...

That should read "Nazi boss/Soros puppet Yatsenyuk believes..."

The Ukraine does not have any sort of a government or prime minister or anything like that at present.

You think that there exists an evil empire like the Soviet Union in Europe?

How did the world miss that?

Remember who we are dealing with, here.

The Academic Radical Socialists currently in charge do not have the interests of America at heart. They have proven that numerous times over the last 6 years.

As I have said before, this is Alinsky vs. Machiavelli, and Alinsky starts the game with a serious disadvantage.

I don’t think he wants to restore the Soviet Union. Rather, I think he wants to restore the Russian Empire.

Yeah, the number if "experts" on this board and elsewhere, who claim that Putin is trying rebuild the Soviet Union, are demonstrating nothing but their ignorance of the man and Russia. Would any self-respecting Commie surround himself with Romanov trappings and embrace the Russian Orthodox Church?

This is not a laughing matter. Putin is very worrisome to his neighboring countries that part of the USSR.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk is a banking guy.

He received his PhD from

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ukrainian_Academy_of_Banking_of_the_National_Bank_of_Ukraine

the banking school of the

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Bank_of_Ukraine

Ukraine’s equivalent of the Federal Reserve,

except...

The National Bank of Ukraine is not YET a member bank of the

http://www.bis.org/

The job the elite bankers have given Mr. Yatsenyuk, like any other national leader, is to ensure that his nation repays its bonds, and, if need be, enforcing “austerity” in order to do so.

After recent events in Nevada, they -very- much need a foreign distraction. An excuse for continued economic failure and ‘security threat’ would be good too.

C’mon, you don’t find invading your neighbors and annexing their territories funny. A real comedian, that guy Putin is . . . .

People are saying that he wants to rebuild an empire, you are saying he doesn’t, the Communism isn’t the real issue his empire building is what is scaring so many nations as they scramble for protection from him.

That's not what I'm saying at all...in fact I believe that Putin is trying to rebuild the old Tsarist Russian Empire.

Also, there are a bunch of folks on this board and elsewhere who are claiming that Putin is a Commie and is trying to rebuild the Soviet Union. He's not...he lost his Communist ideology a long time ago, and is styling himself as a new Tsar of a revived Russia. I have not once heard him mention Marx, Lenin, or world revolution. Instead, he's trumpeting Russian nationalism to rally his country behind him. That is not Communism.

I think the issue is empire, but if your opinion is that the lifelong Communist and KGB official wants to be more of a dictator than the usual Communist, and that also goes for the largely KGB leadership of the state church, I haven’t seen any big arguments about that yet.

I don’t know how you can so sure yet what the long term goal is of the hidden KGB, but right now I guess it is just opinions, I haven’t personally noticed that Communism is the issue being focused on here.
