Russia's Still Leftist

Russia's Still Leftist
Russia’s Still Leftist

In response to Biden’s Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s, somewhat tacky yet historically normal comment upon Russia and the rest of the Collective Security Treaty Organization sending troops into Kazakhstan, the Kremlin responded thusly:

If Antony Blinken loves history lessons so much, then he should take the following into account: when Americans are in your house, it can be difficult to stay alive and not be robbed or raped.

We are taught this not only by the recent past but by all 300 years of American statehood.

Now firstly, this is the normal sequence of snarky, belittling comment followed by an escalating-within-the-theme response that is the hallmark of US-Russian dialog. As such, it’s barely worth noting and I would completely ignore it if it didn’t provide strong evidence that Russia is still Leftist to this day.

If It Rants Like A Leftist…

This is the only thing I find interesting about Russia’s response to Blinken’s baiting. It is nothing more than a suaver and more intelligently worded version of the anti-American rantings that we’ve been peppered with the Leftists inside America’s borders for over half a century.

I guess it just goes to show that while their State Socialism was ended during President Reagan’s tenure, Russia is still Leftist in the ways that really matter to us Americans.

Nuclear Clock Strikes

President Obama’s January 1, 2010 Iranian nuclear weapons development deadline has been reached – and breached.  So, in the wake of Khamnei’s and Ahmadinejad’s rather laughing dismissal of President Obama’s rhetoric, what happens now?

Believe me when I say that this was  Obama’s deadline, not Iran’s. Obama had until January 1, 2010 to solve for the Iranian Question.  He and his words have failed – again.

President Obama spoke – he spoke a great deal – And the regime currently ruling Iran didn’t just ignore him, they laughingly defied him and accelerated their nuclear weapons development program.

They built clandestine, hardened uranium enrichment facilities near Qom, facilities too small for energy production use but very well-suited for weapons development.  Now it is reported that they are trying to illicitly purchase approximately 1350 tons of purified uranium purified uranium ore, aka yellow cake, from Kazakhstan. All  the time while doing this the Muslim regime ruling Iran has threatened Israel and taunted the Civilized World. They have also conducted very public tests of medium and long range missiles to carry a nuclear payload as far as Europe.

As of today, President Obama’s deadline to halt Iran’s dangerous quest for nuclear weapons has past and Iran continues on its hell spawned agenda to be a nuclear power. But does President Obama have anything but well-crafted but empty words and incomplete and ineffectual sanctions to answer Iran’s truculence with?

The Doomsday Clock of a Nuclear Iran strikes ever closer to midnight.  Khamenei and Ahmadinejad have called Obama’s bluff and now Obama has to show his cards – and whatever small measure of mettle he might have.
