Psycho Russia, Qu’est-ce que c’est?

We simply don’t see how it’s possible to argue that neo-Soviet Russia is governed by anyone except a clan of barbarically ignorant madmen.  Given this reality, it’s impossible to imagine how Russia as we know it can survive.

Just last week, we reported how even the Kremlin is, dimly at least, aware of generally being on the verge of total economic collapse, and specifically of seeing its crucial energy sector implode like a house of cards for lack of investment.  Even the Kremlin seemed cognizant of the fact that it needed foreign investment, particularly American oil and gas expertise, if it wanted its ship of state to stay afloat. 

And yet, what was the big news coming out of Russia last week?  Paranoid, rabid anti-Americanism including an attempt to base strategic bombers in Venezuela and/or Cuba and even more nationalist crackdowns on investors, that’s what.  In other words, Russian policy was proceeding in the exact opposite direction from Russian interests.  It was almost as if Russia were being governed by a foreign spy bent on the nation’s ultimate destruction.

65% of all Russians, it was reported, see the U.S. as an evil nation, and half believe Russia faces a direct military theat from NATO.  Make no mistake:  this is not ignorance on the part of the population, is it policy imposed from the Kremlin, and it is used to justify actions like the recent seizure of assets from the Norwegian telecom firm Telenor by the Kremlin-controlled Alfa Group in a shamelessly corrupt manipulation of the Russian court system the likes of which only the Kremlin could orchestrate.

To all appearances, just at the very moment when it can least afford to do so, just as it has been shown beyond cavil that its economy depends utterly on the West, Russia has decided to wall itself off from the outside world in a childish tantrum of greed, paranoia and blind hatred.  This is exactly what happened after the Bolshevik revolution, and the ultimate result cannot be expect to be one bit different:  Russia will destroy itself, all the while issuing crazy denunciations of the evil foreigners who it imagines are obsessed with possessing the magnificance of the Holy Rus.

Vladimir Putin’s Russia is rapidly sliding into an abyss from which there is no escape.  If the people of Russia care anything for their children’s future, they will take a look at their recent history and then take decisive action to avert this apocalypse. They have precious little time remaining to make the attempt.

  1. “It was almost as if Russia were being governed by a foreign spy bent on the nation’s ultimate destruction.”

    Unfortunately, this might also apply to the United States.
    And the price of oil might rise in the next months.

  2. Great article and I couldn’t agree more. The recently announced rearmament plan and increase in military spending must rank as the most shortsighted financial stimulus package yet.

    We covered this theme in a recent post http://worldismycountry.org/?p=311

  3. Russia and much of Central Asia looks set to become a cold white Africa only with shrinking populations instead of growing ones.

    Can Russia look to the rest of Central Asia for replacements of its (educated) population which is vanishing? (He asked rhetorically.) Kazakhstan had a total fertility rate TFR of 1.88 kids per woman in 2008 high by European standards but below replacement rate (roughly 2.1 kids per woman in healthy societies). Afghanistan has a high TFR of 6.58 in 2008 but it was 7.2 in 2006 and urbanization has accelerated. While some nations like Pakistan still have high TRF there are lots of other regions in the area like Iran and across Europe which have below replacement.

    If high fertility nations like Pakistan, Afghanistan and a few others keep heading towards the replacement fertility rate and other regions siphon off the working age people and Russian style governments prevail the region, Central Asia could go into a total Dark Ages to an extent that would make today’s Central Asia look like a Utopia. A USWR: Union of Soviet Wildlife Refuges. But then, politics abhors a vacuum.

    Спасибо дорогая редакция! Наконец вы открыли мне глаза. Все эти годы меня мучили смутные сомнения по поводу неадекватной политики Путина, направленной на отстаивание национальных интересов. Я даже начал подумывать, что его заслали нам марсиане, но согласитесь это немного попахивает дурдомом. И теперь с вашей бескорыстной помощью, я понял, что Путина подослал в Россию Клинтон, с задачей развала политики Буша.
    Теперь успокоившись пойду выпить адикалону за ваш благословенный ресурс.

  5. Russia bans ‘bloody’ hunting of baby seals.
    Now if they (Russia – Putin’s KGB machine), would only stop killing defenseless journalists and freedom fighters, in Georgia, Chechnya, Ukraine, UK, this could be looked upon as a great achievement

    Russia said on Wednesday it had banned the hunting of baby seals, weeks after Prime Minister Vladimir Putin called it a ‘bloody industry.’

  6. as i said on your blog PONAH:

    exactly, in more specific terms, mass slaughter, with extra sadistic methods of chemical/biological gassing of civilians in Grozny, Urus-Martal, Xankala, etc, killing close to 300,000 civilians out of 950,000 population (if this is not a Genocide, than i dont have any terms to describe this process of de-chechenization of Chechnya). Mass rape, murder, torture and ethnic cleansing against Georgians, first in 1993 in Abkhazia and now in so called “South Ossetia” where not a single Georgian village or house remains. The list is too long, and what is more disturbing, the western ignorance is even deeper.

    Должен с вами полностью согласиться, Запад погряз в невежестве. Хочу сообщить вам непосредственно из логова врага о замалчивающихся Западом планах ФСБ наследницы КГБ. Массовое уничтожение газовым и биологическим оружием несчастных сводолюбивых чеченцев, было только испытание методов с помощью которых кровавый режим собирается уничтожить надежду всего свободолюбимого человечества- USA. Осуществить этот грязный план, Путин собирается с помощью дрейфующих на льду в Арктике заводах по производсву биологического оружия. А вы думали ему нужны полезные ископаеммые? Не будте так наивны, кровавый режим исключительно коварен.
    В связи с выше сказаным хочу добавить уважаемому POMAH, не живите илюзиями. В секретных лабараториях ФСБ наследницы КГБ учеными было достоверно установленно, что младенцы тюлений, больше всех ,по своему генотипу, близки к наиболее передовой части человечества, проживающей в Северной Америке. И по этому закон о запрете охоты на тюлений нужен режиму исключительно из за нехватки подопытного материала для оканчательной дороботки своего ужасного оружия.
    Все озвученные выше сведения обсолютно достоверны, потому что получены мною непосредственно от исполнителей за ящик адиколону, но во имя торжества справедливости я согласен побыть неделю трезвым.
    Будте бдительны!

    Are you the best poster on this site? Why yes, yes you are.

    You are who?

    I sincerely regret.

    ty Futility.Я кажется понял, что тут дело в некоректнном переводе моего ника.
    Мой ник, буквально имеет значение: слепой вдруг увидевший свет.

    • But surely you do not mean it literally? If not, then my translation is more than accurate.

      I could, of course, be wrong, and you have in fact regained sight where once there was none. Blessed be the ways of La Russophobe!

  12. Просветленный

    Amen

  13. пиндосы пошли нахуй

  14. На самом деле очень прикольный блог! Спасибо и… разумеется, пишите еще!
