Humiliation in Bulgaria

Last week little Bulgaria, whose citizens live far longer than “mighty” Russians on average, poked a finger right in Russia’s eye.  It told the Russians it was no longer interested in hosting a pipeline to Europe, specifically Greece.

There were two truly devastating implications from this action.

First, Bulgaria announced it had repudiated the Russians because of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico at an oil well operated by British Petroleum.  The Bulgarians announced to the world that they felt Russia’s scheme for the pipeline was no more reliable, and therefore could not be trusted.  Once again, in other words, events in the U.S. prove to dominate events in Russia, just as the price of oil set by Americans controls the Russians stock market.  And the Bulgarians made it clear that Russia is at least as incompetent in managing oil resources as the US, if not much more so.  Ouch.

Second, Russian influence in the former Soviet sphere was once again exposed as pathetically weak.  In fact, in two more editorials we publish today we show how Russian influence around the world, from Kyrgyzstan to South Korea, has been exposed as wretched and negative in every aspect. With every passing day, more and more countries are beginning to realize that they simply cannot do business with the neo-Soviet state of Vladimir Putin, run by a proud KGB spy.  Every day, Putin reminds the people of post-Soviet space that his country is an abusive, manipulative, aggressive rogue state which fully intends to recreate the Soviet empire at the first opportunity.

This phenomenon was first fully on view with the Russian invasion of Georgia in 2008, when the entire planet rejected the annexation of Ossetia and Abkhazia and world leaders rushed to the aid of besieged Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili.

It was displayed most recently when then EU and the USA went forward to move beyond the UN sanctions against Iran which Russia successfully watered down to the point of insignificance.  Russia fumed and sputtered without outrage, and was ignored.  Well, not totally ignored. Some mocked the land of Putin as “schizophrenic” on Iran.

It is more clear now than ever that Russia stands utterly alone in the world, helplessly betrayed by the KGB lunatics who govern it, unable to sit at the table of civilized discourse and be treated as an equal by the major nations of the world.

In fact, even tiny, backwards Bulgaria sees Russia as beneath contempt.

  1. Well, with Greece messed up, Bulgaria feels like it would have nobody to sell the product to. I would not rejoice much about that ‘Gulf of Mexico’ justification. Which has nothing to do with potential security but all to do with finding an opportunity.

    South Korea was never in the Soviet sphere of influence. Besides I know of other projects Russians have there and they are just fine.

    You are projecting too much of your own wishes onto these events.

    • We wrote “Russian influence around the world” in regard to South Korea, you lying jackass.

      Mischaracterize our content just once more and you’re banned.

      “I know of other projects” with no source violates our comment rules. Violate them again and you’re banned.

      You are projecting too much of your own wishes onto these events. If Russia didn’t care about this pipeline, it wouldn’t have sought Bulgarian permission in the first place, idiot. Can’t you think at least a little before you let your childish emotions carry you away?

      • I get my comments deleted on regular basis, especially if they make you look bad already.

        • You’re an illiterate buffoon. We didn’t say we’d delete your lies, we said we’d ban you. We’re glad to know you don’t care about your privilege of commenting on this blog, so we can feel perfectly comfortable eliminating it.’

          Goodbye.

          • Leos point was absolutely correct. He`s not very optimistic about the importance of cancellation of this little pipeline, that`s all. Look at Greece now, who wants to invest in business with basically bankrupt state?
            I hope they cancel the south stream, that would be something!

  2. Note also that Russia will surely well compensate the moral and financial losses by dramatically increasing the gas prices for Bulgaria the next year (Bulgaria has no other major gas supplier). This will be a very understandable and fair step, taking into account that Bulgaria abandoned these joint projects AFTER signing all the mutual agreements. So, enjoy your winter holidays, bulgarian “bratushki”, and hopelessly wait when Nabucco will be built!

    • I think there must had been provisions in the contract that the Russians will now use against the Bulgarians.

      • Well Leos, there were probably provisions in the contract which the Bulgarians are using.

        Oh well, you Russophiles never were very good at logic.

        By the way “Amigo”, if the Russians are stupid enough to either cut off the gas supply to Bulgaria, or try and raise the price, well you will only watch Europe diversify away even faster from Russian gas supplies…..

        • You can try to “diversify” but how?

        • Germany and old Europe will support Russia anyways, as they invested money in the current/future pipelines such as North Stream. The main hysteric voices for diversification come from new “Europeans” (or sub-Europeans, to be more direct) like Baltic countries, Poland, and Bulgaria/Romania/Hungary etc. Russia has a winning strategy — not to speak with the whole Europe but only with several strategic partner countries like Germany and France. They like it as well — “solidarity” is only good for sub-Europeans, while the old Europe wants to divide and conquer.

            • You’re right, sunshine. That’s exactly what he calls eastern europeans. Ang guess what, Georgians are not even sub-europeans:)

                dimasha,
                the total contempt for russia is world-wide – russian eurasians that walked to the gulags like pigs to slaughter houses – this barbarity was done by russians to russians – now you deny that it ever happened. I have news for you , you will walk to the gulags again with heads down and no resistance – wait till 2012.

                Have you heard about white caucasian – the official name for the white people in amearica.

                Thanks you agree with the description of russians – eurasian, mongoloid, sub-human retard.

  3. Wow, amazing analysis. You got all of that from a small business week article….amazing.

    Maybe if I give you the last three weeks lottery numbers you can do an amazing analysis and tell me what numbers I should bet on this week..

    • you would get millions without giving her numbers – just name the lottery and she will analyze the numbers herself out of the name.

  4. I say ‘old chap’, at least those three make a hell of a lot more honest sense then the unbelievable garbage you keep on vomiting ad nauseam.

    Your oust F… S… B…, should result in a larger percentage of honest truth and sanity returning to LR’s pages!

    PS try pravda.ru, you’ll be a ‘moral certainty’ there, trying to “out do” each other with your blatant propaganda.

    • I’m posting here as the fatt-ass LR deleted my comments from the contents page.

      Nemtsov was very “famous” as governor of Nizhny Novgorod district (not mayor of Niznhy Novgorod — you’re lying here, LR) for stealing millions of credits jointly with his friend, banker Brevnov, and later on, for illegal prisoning Nemtsov’s competitor for governor election, Andrej Kliment’ev (who won the election and the next day after that the election results were canceled and Kliment’jev was labeled as a criminal and arrested).

  5. voce della ragione

    First, Bulgaria announced it had repudiated the Russians because of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico at an oil well operated by British Petroleum. The Bulgarians announced to the world that they felt Russia’s scheme for the pipeline was no more reliable

    God, Bulgarians compared Russians to the British! Wow, that’s a powerful insult.

  6. Bulgarian PM Boyko Borisov is the main opposition not the whole of the country and yes, they do have energy supply vulnerability issues related to Russia and Putin certainly won’t let them off easy that’s for sure.

  7. From a economical and political leader , Germany , is now reduced to a quaking , frightened russian lackey , ready to obey any
    and all demands of their russian masters. What
    a completely disgusting spectacle this has
    become ! France , Spain and Italy are not far
    behind tripping all over themselves to follow
    germany’s suit , lest they miss some of the
    crumbs falling of the russian’s table . The real
    leadership comes from England , the Baltic
    States and Eastern Europe , where people know
    who and what the russians are . The hell with
    ” Old Europe ” !
