- This week the Russian
militaries are conducting a joint military exercise involving large numbers
of troops and combat vehicles. The former Soviet Republics of Tajikistan,
Kyrgkyzstan, and Kazakstan are participating. Other countries appear ready
to join the military alliance.
- This new potent military alliance is a real world response
to neoconservative delusions aboutUS hegemony. Neocons believe
that the US is supreme in the world and can dictate its course. The neoconservative
idiots have actually written papers, read by Russians and Chinese, about
why the US must use its military superiority to assert hegemony over Russia
- Cynics believe that the neocons are just shills, like
Bush and Cheney, for the military-security complex and are paid to restart
the cold war for the sake of the profits of the armaments industry. But
the fact is that the neocons actually believe their delusions about American
- Russia and China have now witnessed enough of the Bush
administration's unprovoked aggression in the world to take neocon intentions
seriously. As the US has proven that it cannot occupy the Iraqi city of
Baghdad despite 5 years of efforts, it most certainly cannot occupy Russia
or China. That means the conflict toward which the neocons are driving
will be a nuclear conflict.
- In an attempt to gain the advantage in a nuclear conflict,
the neocons are positioning<http://www.vdare.com/buchanan/070604_russia.htm>
US anti-ballistic missiles on Soviet borders in Poland and the Czech
Republic. This is an idiotic<http://www.vdare.com/buchanan/070212_putin.htm>provocation as
the Russians can eliminate anti-ballistic missiles with cruise missiles.
Neocons are people who desire war, but know nothing about it. Thus, the
US failures in Iraq and Afghanistan.
- Reagan and Gorbachev ended the cold war. However, US
administrations after Reagan's have broken the agreements and understandings.
The US gratuitously brought NATO and anti-ballistic missiles to Russia's
borders. The Bush regime has initiated a propaganda war against the Russian
government of V. Putin.
- These are gratuitous acts of aggression. Both the Russian
and Chinese governments are trying to devote resources to their economic
development, not to their militaries. Yet, both are being forced by America's
aggressive posture to revamp their militaries.
- Americans need to understand what the neocon Bush regime
cannot: a nuclear exchange between the US, Russia, and China would establish
the hegemony of the cockroach.
- In a mere 6.5 years the Bush regime has destroyed the
world's good will toward the US. Today, America's influence in the world
is limited to its payments of tens of millions of dollars to bribed heads
of foreign governments, such as Egypt's and Pakistan's. The Bush regime
even thinks that as it has bought and paid for Musharraf, he will stand
aside and permit Bush to make air strikes inside Pakistan. Is Bush blind
to the danger that he will cause an Islamic revolution within Pakistan
that will depose the US puppet and present the Middle East with an Islamic
state armed with nuclear weapons?
- Considering the instabilities and dangers that abound,
the aggressive posture of the Bush regime goes far beyond recklessness.
The Bush regime is the most irresponsibly aggressive regime the world has
seen since Hitler's.
- If only a sweet young thing would volunteer to give Bush
a blowjob so that he can be impeached before he leads us to Armageddon.
