Kadyrov the Beast
We always know when the Kremlin is starting to panic, because the rhetoric of its malignant denizens goes from infantile to senile to simply bestial. With four major attacks on leading Caucasus Kremlin puppets in as many weeks, the Kremlin is getting desperate and its utterances are getting scary.
The Associated Press reports that Chechen ruler and Vladimir Putin puppet Ramzan Kadyrov has his own ideas about who is killing powerful government officials in the Caucasus region: “It is precisely from the side of America that work is being carried out aimed at the disintegration of the sovereign Russian state. It is not terrorists, not Islamists.”
Repudiations of Kadyrov’s insane remarks by Putin and his other puppet, Dima Medvedev, have been conspicious by their absence. Putin himself, of course, has blamed the U.S. for Georgia’s resolute defense against Russian imperialism in Abkhazia and Ossetia.
And Kadyrov wasn’t finished revealing his true inner soul. His next comment was even more revealing; describing his response to the recent assassination attempt on the President of Ingushetia, he stated: “We will conduct our investigation in line with the law of the mountains and our revenge for Yunus-Bek Yevkurov will be ruthless.”
Ruthless revenge? Is this what passes for statesmanship in Vladimir Putin’s Russia these days? Putin goes around proudly proclaiming how he’ll rub out his enemies in their toilets, and now this?
Yes, that’s exactly what we face. We face a Russia that is literally governed by barbarians, people who are incapable of perceiving how their own actions will be viewed by others because they get no genuine flow of information in a neo-Soviet state. They are free to say and do what they really think, heedless of the consequences, just as was the case in the USSR.
Reading these words, no reasonable person can believe that the West can have any policy towards the Kremlin other than cold war and regime change, the only policy that was possible in Soviet times. President Obama must make this just as clear next month when he visist Moscow as Ronald Reagan did.
