Once Again, the USA Humiliates Russia
Well, it’s that time of year again, the time when Russia is forced to hang its head in shame before the awesome power of the United States, the time it dreads all year like the plague.
You know, the time when they hand out the Nobel prizes. Ouch.
Well, let’s see now. This year they handed out 13 Nobel prizes in the traditional six categories (physics, literature, economics, chemistry, medicine and peace).
And Russia won . . . exactly zero. Again. Does anyone remember the last time a Russian won as much as a share in a single Nobel prize (hint: think six years ago)?
As for America? It took down a whopping 9 of the 13 prizes including one in peace (making it two of the last three years for the Americans in this category), three in medicine, two in physics , one in chemistry and two in economics.
But America is a warlike nation that knows nothing about science and is populated by fat, Big-Mac-chomping slobs and morons, right?
Was the contest rigged to favor America by the world which, according to Russia, despises America and all it stands for? Oops.
So America wins 70% of the Nobel prizes available and Russia wins 0%. Anybody else think that’s a pretty telling insight into the relative levels of development, education and civilization of the two countries? We sure do. Meanwhile, Russians go on imagining that America knows nothing about such things as physics and chemistry, that Russians are light years ahead of America in this regard. One might weep if one were not so busy laughing. And vice versa.
Amazingly, Russian “president” Dima Medvedev (who couldn’t even manage to vote properly in the recent Russian elections) actually tried to take credit for U.S. President Barack Obama’s peace prize. In one of the craziest statements yet issued from the Medvedev Kremlin, Dima exclaimed: “I hope that this decision will serve as an additional incentive to our work to create a new climate in international politics and promote initiatives that are fundamentally important for global security.”
Our work, huh Dima? Yes, that’s what he believes. Kremlin lackey Vlad Frolov was even more unambiguous: “It is a pity that President Dmitry Medvedev will not share the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize with U.S. President Barack Obama. In my view, he deserves it no less than Obama, whose principal accomplishments are still in the future.”
Funny, we must have missed Dima’s speech in America rejecting Vladimir Putin’s seething anti-American hatred and calling for a new era of good relations in which America’s concerns would be more fully considered by Russia, as Obama did in the Middle East. We don’t recall him pointing out America virtues and strengths the way Obama did about the Arabs. In fact, to the contrary we distinctly recall Medvedev continuing to bash America and indeed sending aid and comfort to America’s enemies, like Venezuela, Syria and Iran, including nuclear weapons. Doesn’t sound terribly peaceful to us.
It’s always amazing how Russians are able to shield themselves so completely from anything remotely like facts or reality, just as they did in Soviet times. It proves, of course, that it is nothing but mythology that Russians have full access to facts via the Internet. Indeed, Russia remains just as backward and ignorant as it ever was in Soviet times.
Which is why, of course, Russia can’t win Nobel prizes. Instead of reforming, Russia denies the need to reform, and continues to languish in darkness.
