We Slept Through The Part – That We Lost The High Road…

“Our partners, especially in the United States, have always been formulating their geopolitical and state interests coherently and clearly, pursuing these interests in a steadfast manner, and adjusting the rest of the world to their [interests] according to the famous wording “Those who are not with us are against us!”” Putin said…

Once upon a time many years ago, back in the old days this fairytale was different. That “upon a time ago” was not that long ago and the U.S. was the one holding the highroad, so to speak. We were the beacon of hope and goodness. Maybe we had faults, but we held the highroad, due to our desire to do the best we can and be the best we can and be moral about it…

We got lost and drove off the highroad and now have found ourselves traveling the low road of life, we have found ourselves with many other “use to to be highroad travelers” and it seems that we could not study history very well…

I am not sure when the exact turning point was, but I do know that Vietnam was a major player in this game and we  could have learned from our mistakes there and changed our path to the betterment of the world. Though it seems that we did not study history well again and kept trudging down the path of lest resistance and destruction to humanity…

My dad would have told you the same about Korea, for he fought there and saw some terrible things…

Seems to me that we had ample opportunity to change our ways and path many times and it seems that history is not a strong point for Americans…

hot-cup-of-coffeeBottom line is; We have set the stage for Russia to be the new moral compass and China to be the new financial powerhouse…

Sorry it is too late to change the script now, we had our chance…

    ‘Non-interference principle must be fit into European realities’

    Western interference in Ukraine led to catastrophic consequences for the country, Putin said, suggesting measures to prevent the repetition of a similar scenario in other countries on the continent.

    “The task is to fit the traditional principle of non-interference into modern European realities, initiating a serious international discussion of the issue. We all need some kind of a safety net in Europe, so that the Iraqi, Libyan, Syrian and Ukrainian precedents won’t turn into a contagious disease.”

    ‘Blackmail wrong tool in international relations’

    President Putin criticized Washington, which already imposed sanctions on Moscow after the accession of the Republic of Crimea into Russia, for making efforts to scuttle Russia’s 1.12 billion euro deal on Mistral warships with France.

    “We know about the pressure that our American partners put on France to prevent the supply of Mistral [warships] to Russia. And we know that they hinted that if the French won’t supply Mistral [warships] then sanctions against their banks will be removed or, at least, minimized. What is this, if not blackmail?”

    However, he once against stressed the importance of close cooperation between Moscow and Washington.

    “We have absolutely no plans to shut down our relations with the US. It’s true that our bilateral relations aren’t in the best of shape now. But it’s not our fault, not Russia’s fault.”
    West should stop turning world into ‘global barracks’

    Putin said it was high time for the US and Western Europe to give up their political ambitions and start building mutually beneficial relations with the rest of the world.

    ‘Ukrainian president fully responsible for violence’

    A significant part of Putin’s speech was dedicated to the events in crisis-hit Ukraine, where President Petro Poroshenko decided to not prolong the ceasefire with the rebellious Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics.

    “So far, Petro Poroshenko had no direct relation to the orders to take military action. Now he has taken on this responsibility in full. Not only military, but also political, which is more important.”

    Putin repeated that Russia won’t interfere into Ukraine, but stressed Moscow’s readiness to help those fleeing the battlefield.

    “Everything that happens in Ukraine is, of course, the internal affair of the Ukrainian state, but we feel painfully sorry that the people, the civilians, are dying. You know that there are a growing number of refugees arriving in the Russian Federation and we’ll certainly assist all those in need.”

    ‘We mustn’t sacrifice our vital interests just to be allowed to sit next to someone’

    Russia has no interest in participating in formats for international relations where it’s only allowed “to play the role of an observer, with no final say on key issues,” Putin said.

    With Gazprom cutting off gas supplies to Ukraine, Putin warned Kiev that Moscow is aware of its illegal attempts to obtain Russian gas.

    “Well, [the Ukrainians] have been scheming with some of their partners. They, actually, get our gas, but pay to some European partner, which doesn’t receive its gas supply in full. We see everything. But, for now, we aren’t taking any actions in order to avoid aggravating the situation.”

    ‘Russia-China relations an example to others’

    Putin also praised Russia’s ties with China, which have improved as a result of the West’s restrictive policies toward Moscow.

    “It’s crucial that the Russian-Chinese friendship isn’t directed against anybody whatsoever. We don’t create any military alliances. On the contrary, it’s an example of equal, respectful and productive cooperation between the two states in the 21st century.”
