Of the Presidents most iconic and overused statement none hold a senior status to that of his “wrong side of history” comment. Anyone who knows and understands philosophic Russia and its history knows that Putin’s actions are, in fact, right in line with history. The neo-progressive revisionists here in the U.S. may very well successfully persuade Americans to buy it, the European theater will not.
Economic sanctions, really? Russia has no worry over a declining Ruble and for one very good reason: Putin’s Russia doesn’t accept payment for energy supplies, to the E.U. or from China, in Rubles. The whorish actions of Western Managed Commodities Markets are preying on crude and this is driving up the price per barrel which is to Russia’s advantage. Sanctions indeed! Weakness is not a position of strength.
A Presidential reminder:
“The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic”. – John F. Kennedy
