Russia Roars, Washington Whimpers

Sanctions against Iran? Forgetabaoutit!

This is a staggering defeat for the Obama administration. Putin and Medvedev are eating Obama's and Clinton's lunch.

Russia now sets the agenda. Washington only reacts.

BEIJING (Reuters) - Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Wednesday warned major powers against intimidating Iran and said that talk of sanctions against the Islamic Republic was "premature".

"There is no need to frighten the Iranians," Putin told reporters in Beijing.

"We need to look for a compromise. If a compromise is not found, and the discussions end in a fiasco, then we will see," he said, adding that talks of sanctions was "premature" at present.

So how about that?

Vladimir Putin is not about peace. He is about Hegemony. By playing Iran against the West and setting himself up as Iran's protector, Putin secures Russian dominance in the European political sphere. The result? - No defense systems for Eastern Europe, no hope for a free Georgia, the Ukraine is screwed and even better, oil prices will go up.

Barrack Obama and Hillary Clinton are so outclassed . . .

How is that Nobel Peace Prize working for you there Obama?

It is an unfortunate fact of life that there are people out there in the wilds of the Internet that think it cute to post racist and Nazi garbage on other peoples websites. Some of these thugs are even enabled by people who should know better. In my opinion, both the thugs and their enablers are worse than spammers.

I have recently made enemies with a particular group of these people who have done just that on another website. I don't intend to make it easy for them to do that to me.

In light of that, comment moderation will be used here on this humble and very obscure little blog.

I will check in several times each day to approve appropriate comments.

For the most part, I will allow just about any type of comment except for spam and Kilgorian excrement.
