Putin the Rat Bastard
Vladimir Putin appeared on American TV last week, specifically on CNN’s Larry King show, and openly threatened the people of the United States. If they dare to try to protect the people of Europe with defensive missile technology, Putin said, then Russia “will be simply obliged to protect its own safety by different means.”
Russian “safety,” you see, depends on being able to wipe out Europe any time it likes, with impunity. Russian “safety” calls for Russia being able to blackmail any country in Europe, not just with energy deprivation but also with nuclear holocaust.
As we point out in our lead editorial today, there is no reason Putin should not think he can get away with this kind of bully tactic, because the current occupant of the Oval Office, Barack Obama, is a craven coward.
The spectacle of a proud, malignant KGB spy appearing with the doddering, incompetent has-been Larry King to threaten the American public into doing his bidding while the gutless President of the United States watches silently, and then urges Americans to adopt a nuclear treaty with Russia that is totally one-sided in Russia’s favor, is truly nauseating.
We urge the Republican Party to redouble its efforts to both block the Obama sham treaty and reassert the Bush nuclear shield policy in Eastern Europe, regardless of Russian “concerns.” It could not be more clear that the government of Russia is committed to the obliteration of American values and interests all across Eurasia, and it is time for the Republicans to seize the reins of foreign policy before the United States finds itself confronted by a consolidated, aggressive, imperialistic, neo-Soviet Russia running amok just as the USSR once did.
