Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me. Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me!" [John 8:42-45]
The 'Old Enemy' is starting to show its true face. Vladimir Putin comments on Western military intervention in Libya while visiting a Russian ballistic missile factory (hint, hint; wink, wink):
After Putin compared Western military intervention in Libya to the Crusades, Russian President Medvedev seemed to offer disagreement (per their KGB/FSB script):
“It’s unacceptable to use terms that effectively lead to a clash of civilizations like the crusades,” Medvedev said at his residence outside Moscow. “Otherwise things could end far worse than what’s happening now.” [Bloomberg]
Medvedev's words are foreshadowing IMO.
The West's "upset" draws near.
In anticipation of this, Vladimir Putin has said Western forces responsible for civilian deaths in Libya should "pray for the salvation of their souls." While this might seem like an odd comment from (Ras)Putin to most, anyone who frequents this blog will recognize the meaning.
The bottom line is this. There was far more for Russia to strategically gain by waging FALSE PEACE over the last two decades than by continuing with the Cold War and a foreign policy of brinkmanship with the West. Now Russia is in an advantageous position in terms of the perceived Russian military threat relative to actual strategic capabilities. About as much of the U.S. strategic nuclear capability as possible has been nullified using false peace, thus war is the course that's now appropriate to Kremlin domination of the world.
The Kremlin is playing a global game of chess while the Pentagon is playing checkers. The West simply won't realize what's happening as Moscow makes it final checkmate moves:
"Behind the mask of diplomatic and political cooperation and partnership with the United States and Europe, the current Russian leaders are following the strategy of their predecessors and working towards a 'New World Order'. When the right moment comes the mask will be dropped and the Russians with Chinese help will seek to impose their system on the West on their own terms..." - Anatoliy Golitsyn's Memorandum to the CIA: FEBRUARY 1993 - The Importance Of The Strategic Factor In Assessing Developments In Russia And Communist China
I simply don't understand why everyone continues to cooperate in their own demise:
"War to the hilt between communism and capitalism is inevitable. Today, of course, we are not strong enough to attack. Our time will come in 20 to 30 years. To win, we shall need the element of surprise. The bourgeoisie will have to be put to sleep. So we shall begin by launching the most spectacular peace movement on record. There will be electrifying overtures and unheard-of concessions. The capitalist countries, stupid and decadent, will rejoice to cooperate in their own destruction. They will leap at another chance to be friends. As soon as their guard is down, we shall smash them with our clenched fist." - Dimitry Z. Manuilsky, Chairman of United Nations Security Council, 1949
