Putin Is Angry At EU

These are not the best of times, these are not the worst of times for Vladimir Putin and the semi-dictatorship that he runs in Russia. Last week a former trainer who worked with the Russian winter Olympic team revealed the entire team was doped up which led to their wining many Gold medals. Naturally, Vladimir was furious at this attempt to smear the noble, pure tradition of Mother Russia. There is no  question these charges stem from the EU and the American CIA.

So, yesterday, the Eurovision Song Contest added new evidence of an EU plot to overthrow the government of Russia. Jamal, of Crimean heritage who is from Ukraine, won the  song contest. Her song was entitled: “1994.” She is of Crimean heritage and the song recounts how  in 1944 during WWII, thousands of Crimeans were rounded up and shipped to Siberia by the Stalin dictatorship. The  Russian government denounced this “insult” to Mother Russia!

So, What About Syria?

Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have made income inequality the main issue in their contest to become the candidate for president, but one more terrorist attack and  many Americans will be more interested in physical security than financial security. Neither candidate has offered any sort of foreign policy program that deals with this key issue. There is a large segment of the American population that is scared stiff. So, what can Bernie or Hillary offer that might address this issue?

1. It is time to be realistic. It is time to call for a new anti-terror alliance that involves the US, Europe, Russia and Iran.

2. During World War II the US and England formed an alliance with the Soviet Union. Yes, the Soviet Union was led by a dictator who would make Vladimir Putin come across as a choir boy. But, VICTORY was the name of the game.

3. Iran has boots on the ground in Syria–the Revolutionary Guards and Hezbollah, so let the US offer Special Operations and air might.

4. It is time to make clear to Turkey the Kurds are part of the anti-terrorist equation.

Yes, terrorism can be defeated in Syria. So, Bernie and Hillary, offer a damn plan!

How The World Views Donald Trump?

Secretary of State John Kerry is concerned at the image of America being conveyed by the Trump quest for publicity–getting to become president.

France: Would you consider heading the National Front which seeks to send Muslims back to where they came from? Of course, we doubt that many French women would consider you to be a seducer with words of love and tenderness.

Germany: Herr, Donald, we regret that you were not around when the guy who shouted even louder than you knew how to handle inferior creatures of life. What a wonderful head of the SS you would have made!

Russia: Vladimir Putin wants to meet you man-to-man in a wrestling contest. Winner takes all- Putin wins, he is the candidate for president. If Ted born in Canada can run, why not a guy from Russia!

ISIS Land. Donald, we have to admit when it comes to bullshitting, you are the number one leader in the world. We will trade you one carpet bombing for a bomb anywhere in Texas.

China. Mr. Trump we are willing to offer you as many exports to China as you desire–tariff free. Of course, the goods will  have to be made in Vietnam, you know, the place where John McCain lived in the Hotel Hanoi while real patriots were fighting the Viet Cong.

Cuba: Donald, we are not Mexican peasants seeking to head for the USA. We offer you an entire country in which Spanish speaking people would welcome your Great,Great, Business ideas and keep them at home.

Putin Restores Law And Order

It is quite clear there are many bad people here in America and over in Russia who simply do not understand that President Vladimir Putin is really attempting to create a Russian society in which every single man and woman has the absolute right to praise their beloved leader without  any fear of being harassed or sent to jail. Putin understands Russians society is not being threatened so much by Islamic terrorists as by LIBERALS who seek to use words in order to end freedom and democracy in the homeland.

As Putin so clearly notes: “Even when Internal Security employees use repressive  measures against those who break the law, people see that it is done in society’s interests and will have the support of the people.” First, you allow criminals to shout,”freedom,” and soon you will discover that liberals and those seeking civil rights are really out to overthrow the nation’s interests and bring chaos and disorder to peaceful Mother Russia.

I would so enjoy listening to Putin and Trump discuss human rights.

So, What About Syria?

It has become increasing clear that neither General Trump nor General Cruz have much to offer about  the situation in Syria. I know they want to carpet bomb some place but just about every place in Syria has been bombed and bombed. At this moment, believe it or not, there is a strange quiet in this forlorn area of the world. The guns are sort of silent, trucks with food are creeping into isolated cities, and just about every group has reached the point of exhaustion. Al Nusra,the al-Qaeda group is furious at ISIS which stole its prominence, and the Free Syrian Army just is tired of the year after year attempt to overthrow President Assad.

The Russians are leaving, but the Iranian Revolutionary Guards remain to support President Assad. I do realize Republicans want to shoot someone, but there is simply no group around willing or ready to shoot anyone. The reality is that President Assad will be with us for the near future. About the only effective fighters against Assad remain the P.K.K. Kurds and they are hated by the Turks.

Anyway, all is quiet on the eastern front–at least for a day.

 

Vladimir Putin, The Tough Trump

We decided to interview Vladimir Putin on his observations of the American political scene.

“I really like this Trump guy, my only concern is who would win the Boasting contest as to who is the toughest guy. I realize Donald Trump pretends to be a tough guy, but the closest he comes to displaying toughness is to wave his arms as though that would scare someone. He shouts asking people to punch out a demonstrator, Vladimir Putin does not ask anyone to do his punching, me, I would go right into the audience and POW.

So, Donald wants to scare me and force Russia to behave. If I shook his hand, this bag of wind would collapse on the floor in agony. He is not only a fat head, he is so full of hot air, if he opened his mouth it would power a factory. Frankly, I would love this man to become President. High tariffs on American products means more sales for Russian exports.

I am a martial arts expert. So, tell me, how this fat price ever actually fought anyone with his hands, the extent of his so called tough act is to shout and scream at little punks such as Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. Please, Please, America, make this bag of hot air your next President.”

Putin Says Bye Bye

Vladimir Putin once again shocked the world by announcing that Russian personnel will be leaving Syria and heading home. He appears to have reached the conclusion that his thrust into the Middle East has been successful and it is time to leave the chaos for someone else or he may actually believe his short time   effort has really solved the mess in Syria. With Putin,no one really knows how his mind really works. There is no doubt the Putin thrust has resulted in:

1.Killing gobs of people.

2. Enabling President Assad to live another day.

3. Not really bothered ISIS that much since Russians were more interested in killing moderate Muslims.

4. Provided Republican candidates an opportunity to demonstrate they could take out Russians with their mouths.

5. Left a lot of cities with more bombed out buildings.

6.Increased the financial mess in Russia.

But, other than these occurrences, Russia once again proved it was a tough guy.

Tyrannosaur Reptile Did Live

I realize that many people actually believe we live in a modern era in which those  who attend school are smart. But, it was delightful to learn that millions of years ago, a distant life form roamed this planet who had greater intelligence than any person who attends Trump rallies. Ninety million years ago a horse like Tyrannosaur had an impressive sensory system. There is no doubt this animal could listen carefully and know when a noise in the distant was really a life  form shouting nonsense.

It appears this horse evolved into the dinosaur which grew  to a gigantic size and dominated the world. Today,  we have a  dinosaur  who roars and shouts and threatens the very existence of humanity. Imagine a President Trump with access to atomic weapons of mass destruction. Heck, this guy is ready to fight if someone shouts anger toward him, so how would he handle the Russian bully known as Vladimir Putin? Bombs Away!!

All Quiet On Syrian Front?

Believe it or not but we have now witnessed two entire days without massive fighting in Syria. I realize this sudden interlude is bothering Republican military heroes such as Donald Trump or Ted Cruz who want to carpet bomb someone to prove they understand how to win wars against terrorists. However, for the most part, rebels against Assad are enjoying the first quiet time in years. OK, so the cease fire agreement is not 100% satisfactory since Russia retains the right to bomb “terrorists.”

The real question is whether this strange interlude could result in something that is long term in Syria. So, what are the options for American leaders?

1. They must accept the reality that for the immediate future, there will be a President Assad in Syria.

2. They must accept the reality there will be areas set aside for various rebel groups.

3. The US must realize that Russian is now a power in the Middle East.

Any good news in sight?

1. It is now time for the US to work with Iran in order to get the Russians out of the Middle East. Sorry, Republicans, but Iran is the only hope right now to create some sort of quiet time.

2. It is time for Israel to shut up about the “Iranian menace.”

3. The people of Syria need PEACE AND QUIET so they will cease heading for Europe.

Such is reality. A concept that is foreign to the minds of those seeking to become president of the United States.

Let’s Explain Syria!

The other day I received a phone call from Donald Trump and Marco and Ted which requested my presence because neither of these Ivy League minds can explain who  is who or where in Syria. I was requested to explain this nation.

1. The original inhabitants of Syria were called Syrians.

2. The Awaite minority  is the homeland President Assad. The main occupation of Alawites is to make certain one of them is always running Syria.

3. There are ISIS groups in Syria who want to control tourist places so they can bomb them to hell.

4.There are al-Qaeda guys in Syria fighting somebody,sorry, it changes from day to day.

5. There are the Kurds who are liked by Americans and hated by the Turkish government.

6. The nice Kurds kill terrorists.

7. The bad Kurds, according  the Turkish  government want to take over Turkey.,

8. Turkey is an ally of the US.

9, There is a Free Syrian Army which wants to end the Assad government.

10. There is the not so free Syrian Army which likes President Assad.

11. There, as always, is al-Qaeda pursuing its own aims which are centered around the idea of power–keeping it, that is.

12. The Saudi Arabia planes kill bad Syrians who like Assad.

13. Then,there are Saudis who love Assad.

14. Then, there is Assad who loves the president’s job and the loot that goes with it.

15. Oh, US, French, UK, Jordan and assorted Europeans bomb Syria and have absolutely no idea who are the bad or who are the good guys. Just bomb and bomb, by the law of averages they are bound to kill at least one bad guy each day–along with a few other folks.

16. Then there are the Russians who just enjoy a good war they can maybe win.

I trust this clears up the  Syrian war.
