Russia is a Bandit Nation
We can’t help but wonder how Russians would have reacted to an American president being photographed with, say, Shamil Basayev in the same way Russia’s Dima Medevedev recently was with lunatic Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez. And what if, during the meeting, the American president had declared his intention to supply Basayev with nuclear technology?
The New York Times reported: “Russia first offered Venezuela nuclear power in 2008, during an intense spell of anti-Western sentiment in Moscow after the war with Georgia. The agreement on Friday fleshed out that offer.”
Chavez certainly hates America just as much as Basayev hated Russia, and would like to do America just as much harm, or more. And America certainly could have justified such a move as Medvedev does, pointing to the need to counterbalance increasing Russian imperialist ambition.
Yet we doubt Russians would find such an American action acceptable. In fact, we think they’d probably storm the US Embassy in Moscow as they’ve done with much less provocation, for instance the NATO invasion of Yugoslavia, which was no threat to Russia at all.
This is Russian hypocrisy laid bare. It is Russian savagery, barbarism and self-destruction laid bare. It is a nation that cannot long survive, no more than could the USSR.
Let’s be clear: The United States of America is the world’s only superpower. It possesses the power to liquidate the whole of Russia in a heartbeat, and it boasts a wide range of powerful allies. Its economy dwarfs that of Russia, and its population is growing rapidly while Russia is shrinking. There is only one word for direct confrontation of provocation of the USA by Russia, and that word is suicide.
Yet Russians arrogantly continue this crazed policy, just as did the USSR, and when their nation collapses, again, they will again be “shocked, shocked” to see the ruins before their eyes.
