Skip to comments.Putin calls for a new world order
Posted on 07/13/2014 2:34:15 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe
RUSSIAN President Vladimir Putin and his Argentine counterpart Cristina Kirchner have called for a multipolar world order as Moscow sought to boost ties with Latin America amid heightened East-West tensions.
The Russian leader is on a six-day Latin American tour seeking to increase Moscows influence in the region at a time when the Ukraine crisis has eroded East-West relations to their lowest point since the Cold War.
His itinerary includes meetings with a string of leftist leaders critical of the US and a summit of the BRICS group of emerging countries, an agenda that neatly aligns with his push for a world less dominated by the West.
After his meeting with Ms Kirchner yesterday, Mr Putin backed her call to curb Western dominance of international relations as they cemented a nuclear energy deal. The two also discussed military co-operation, including the prospect of Russia providing transport planes for use in Antarctica. Their delegations signed a series of bilateral deals, including a nuclear energy deal. .
He also voiced his support for Argentinas longstanding claim to the Falkland Islands, the British territory it calls the Malvinas, which sparked a 1982 war between the two countries.
We favour the principles of a multipolar world, which are equality, indivisibility and security. Russia continues to support the need to find a solution to the dispute over the Malvinas Islands at direct negotiations between Great Britain and Argentina, he said at a dinner in his honour.
Earlier, the former KGB spy launched his tour with a visit to Russias Cold War ally Cuba, where he met President Raul Castro and his 87-year-old brother Fidel, father of the islands communist revolution.
According to Russian sources, Mr Putin said they had a long and very interesting conversation of about an hour on international politics and bilateral relations.

WHAT? I heard Henry Kissinger say on the news in 2008 after Obama won election that Zero was brought in to ‘implement the New World Order.” Was Putin sleeping, or does he want to do it now that everything is screwed up, or is he mad that he’s not getting his share of undocumented illegals....does he need a new maid, chauffeur, or butler?
Putin and Obama seem to have the same goals.
A weak, useless USA
But Putin will still have a country.
Move on, nothing to see here, OdumBO working his magic.
Putin once again reminding us all how badly the U.S. and western Europe have underestimated him and his abilities. He’s re-establishing Russian influence in our backyard, and he’s likely to accomplish it in exchange for a relatively bargain price. 32 billion in Cuban debt isn’t chump change, but it isn’t that much in the grand scheme of things, either. That’s less than a month’s worth of Fed “quantitative easing” stimulus into the U.S. housing markets, to look at it another way. A few surplus tanks to this country, some industrial machinery to that country, etc.
This is also what happens when you embrace some cockamamie notion of “soft power” and pooh-pooh the idea of American exceptionalism. International politics, like nature, abhors a vacuum.
Let's get this one world government, one world religion and one world standard of living bill passed. We have to pass the bill to find out what's in it. Wait a minute . . . .
They are doing this without the AMERICAN PEOPLE....PERMISSION!!!!!!!! Where most of the worlds population are neutered and dont have a say WE STILL DO.
Please allow me to introduce myself.
He’s not alone ... the entire democrat congress of the US desires it also
What’s to negotiate, Pootie? It would be like my neighbor claiming my car because I park it in the street in front of his house.
“Let’s negotiate.” Let’s not and we’ll say that we did.
“New world order” Wouldn’t be prudent, not gonna do it ya jackboot.
“He also voiced his support for Argentinas longstanding claim to the Falkland Islands, the British territory it calls the Malvinas, which sparked a 1982 war between the two countries.”
Great, more fires being set.
Thanks, Obama. Well more like thanks, you idiots that voted for him TWICE.
"To treat Ukraine as part of an East-West confrontation would scuttle for decades any prospect to bring Russia and the West especially Russia and Europe into a cooperative international system. ....For the West, the demonization of Vladimir Putin is not a policy; it is an alibi for the absence of one." - Henry Kissinger
Meanwhile back at the white hut...
Cuba could never pay that back anyway, so this "debt forgiveness" is as much a bow to reality as anything. I think the new figure Russia is asking for from Cuba is 4-5 billion which there is at least some reasonable way to work out over the long term.
I agree Putin understands that Obama is a feckless, weak US President, but Russia has so many deep problems of their own that they just can't come close to living up to the image Putin is trying to create.
Russia now has a Ukraine, which Russians consider their backyard and will never be an empire without dominating, as a near mortal enemy. This Ukraine, at the loss of Crimea in the short term, has turned completely to the West. And Russia's actions have hardened anti-Russian feelings amongst many of it's neighbors - again, neighbors it needs to be able to control if it ever hopes to rebuild anything close to an empire. In short, Russia is a threat but not nearly as tough as Putin would have folks believe.
In order to achieve ‘ a cooperative international system’, it takes more than one party to want that goal. Russia sees an opportunity to surpass the West in influence.
Yea that’s what was behind the reset button
Obama has caused a power vacuum since he has caused America to decline in stature. The vacuum will be filled and we won’t be able to do a thing about it.
That is exactly what is happening. And Obama probably doesn’t care to do a thing about it.
Putin a globalist? Who knew? What will the Paultards have to say now?
The cold war bipolar world ended so the question is what comes/came after that. A multipolar world or a unipolar world.
As we entered the post cold war period, the NeoCon republicans began to ascend advocating the unipolar world with the US at the top. The US won the cold war, was the last remaining super power, thus, the world hegemon.
For the NeoCons, multipolar/multilateral is weakness, is "leading from behind". Multilateralism as the UN or NATO are destined to failure and a world order based on a unipolar hierarchy of power with the US at the top is the only viable world order.
So we went down that road but things didn't work out for the NeoCons in Iraq and Afghanistan but they(Cheney, Kristol, Wolfowitz, Bremmer, et al) now are saying we need to re-invade Iraq. Or we need to invade Ukraine. Or Syria. Or Iran. Or blow China out of the water in the South China Sea.
And if we could just give up on Social Security and Medicare, we would have the money to do it.
Same as the GOP new world order puppets.
We have absolutely NO expectations that President Chickensh*t has ever heard of, let alone intends to enforce, the Monroe Doctrine.
Our liberal globalist folks, who cheerlead the EU in Ukraine...should be happy with Putin going Globalist
One ring will rule them all.
Putin beats Obama to the announcement.
BUT Ukraine supporters DON’T support Putin’s pro-Communist anti-American globalism, so maybe they’re not globalists after all?
Maybe our commie Putin cheerleaders are actually the real globalists.
After most of the great powers were destroyed by the great war, the multipolar globalist League of Nations bungled the post-war peace so badly that it led to an even greater war, the greatest war ever.
The ensuing bipolar Cold War world was far more stable and peaceful than the previous multipolar world. While the bipolar world did not prevent wars entirely, the limited wars the US fought in Korea and Viet Nam were nowhere near as destructive and cataclysmic as World War one or two.
The post-Cold War unipolar world has been even more stable and peaceful than the bipolar world. Many Americans have died fighting wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, but nowhere near as many as in Korea and Viet Nam.
The concept of a multipolar world is a backwards idea which has been tried and failed. A multipolar world has been proved to be far more unstable and dangerous than a bipolar world, and the unipolar world has proved to be the most peaceful and stable of all worlds.
We did it all without rolling back the welfare state at all. George W. Bush even expanded medicare. Indeed, neo-conservatives are known to be in favor of FDR's New Deal. The strongest opponents of social security and medicare are libertarians, who are also the strongest opponents of American global power.
Why would any patriotic American want America not to be the most powerful country in the world? Whose side should we be on if not America's?
The war in Iraq was carried out by a multilateral coalition made up of America's closest allies. The war in Afghanistan was carried out by NATO. Indeed NATO is hated by Putin and his motley gang of multipolarist communist rogue states, precisely because NATO is the most powerful military alliance in history, and therefore the cornerstone of America's global military dominance.
Death of the Monroe Doctrine.
