Latest US Thuggery is a Sign of Weakness, Not
September 05, 2017 "Information
- For a while already the Russian diplomats have
been openly saying that their American
counterparts are недоговороспособны or
“non-agreement capable”. This all began under
Obama, when Kerry flew to meet with Lavrov and
declared ‘A’, then flew back to Washington, DC
and declared ‘B’. Then there were the cases in
Syria when the US agreed to a deal only to break
that very same deal in less than 24 hours.
That’s when the Russians openly began to say
that their US colleagues are rank
amateurs who lack even the basic professionalism
to get anything done.
US has slipped even lower: the Russians speak of
US “hellish buffoonery” and “stupid thuggery”.
For the normally hyper-diplomatic Russians, this
kind of language is absolutely unheard of, this
happened before. You could say that the
Russians are naive, but they believe that their
diplomats should always be, well, diplomatic,
and that public expressions of disgust is just
not something a diplomat does. Even more
telling is rather than call the Americans “evil”
or “devious”, they openly express their total
contempt for them, calling them stupid,
incompetent, uneducated and their actions
Maria Zakharova’s statement to that effect on
me explain what is happening here how the
Russians interpreted the latest US thuggery
concerning the Russian Consulate in San
Francisco and the Russian diplomatic annexes in
Washington and New York.
the Russians fully expected the Americans to
retaliate after the Russian expulsion of US
diplomatic personnel in Russia. That, by
the problem. The Russians understand that Trump
is a cornered and weak President, that he has to
show how “tough” he is. Sure, they smile, but
they think that this is ‘fair game’. The
Russians also know that, as a country, the USA
cannot accept the biggest reduction in US
diplomatic personnel in history without
reacting. Again, they don’t necessarily like
it, but they think that this is ‘fair game’.
know what really triggered the Russians off?
The fact that the Americans gave them only 2
days to vacate the premises they would seize and
that they organized some kind of bizarre search
operation. Let me immediately explain that this
is not a case of ruffled feathers by the
Russians, not at all. But here is how they
would think about it:
would they give us only 2 days? Do they really
think that we cannot clear the premises from
anything sensitive in 60 minutes if needed? Or
are they actually trying to inconvenience our
personnel? If so, do they really think that we
are going to break out in hysterics? Do the
Americans really think that they will find
something? What? Papers proving that Trump is
our agent? Maybe a hidden nuclear device? Or
the computers we used to hack in every server in
the USA?” To a Russian, these questions
can only have one answer: of course not. So what
is going on here? And then there is the only
possible explanation left:
beat them is Syria, we are beat them in the
Ukraine, they lost Afghanistan, they lost Iraq,
their Navy apparently does not know how to use a
radar, their soldiers are terrified to fight
somebody capable of resistance, they failed to
impress not only China, but even the North
Koreans who are openly laughing at them.
Hezbollah laughs at them. Even Venezuela
refuses to be scared! The Iranians openly
threaten them with consequences if they back out
of the deal they signed. Even Pakistan is openly
expressing its disgust with the USA. Ditto for
Turkey. Heck – the Americans are losing on all
fronts and the very best they can do is try to
feel good about illegally harassing our
diplomatic personnel! Pathetic, lame,
they are 100% correct.
latest US thuggery against Russian diplomats is
as stupid as it is senseless. I think that US
diplomats of the era of James Baker must be
absolutely mortified to see the kind of idiocy
their successors are now engaging in.
also the end of Rex Tillerson. The poor man now
has only two options left: resign (that would be
the honorable thing to do) or stay and become
another castrated eunuch unable to even deal
with the likes of Nikki Haley, nevermind the
“spokesperson” for the White House declared that
Trump personally ordered the latest thuggery.
Okay, that means one of two thing: either Trump
is so weak that he cannot even fire a lying
spokesperson or that he has now fallen so low as
to order the “thug life” behavior of the State
Department. Either way, it is a disgrace.
also really scary. The combination of, on one
hand, spineless subservience to the Neocons with
intellectual mediocrity, a gross lack of
professionalism and the kind of petty thuggery
normally associated with street gangs and, on
the other hand, nuclear weapons is very scary.
In the mean time, the other nuclear armed
crazies have just declared that they have a
thermonuclear device which they apparently
tested yesterday just to show their contempt for
Trump and his general minions. I don’t think
that they have a hydrogen bomb. I don’t think
that they have a real ICBM. I don’t even think
that they have real (usable) nuclear warheads.
But what if I am wrong? What if they did get a
lot of what they claim to have today – such as
rocket engines – from the Ukies?
Outstanding Leader, Brilliant Comrade,
Young Master and Great Successor, Kim Jong-un
and on the other, The Donald, Grab them by the
xxxxx and Make ‘Merica Great, the Grand Covfefe
Donald Trump. Both armed with nukes.
scary shit. Really scary.
even more scary and depressing is that the
stronger man of the two is beyond any doubt Kim
see in the White House are vacancy signs.
