    Putin says U.S. guided by 'The Rule of the Gun' in Foreign Policy.....

    Putin is now saying we are to caught up with.....our sense of being the Chosen ones. That we believe to much in our exceptionalism. What a joker, huh!


    Russian President Vladimir Putin accused the United States on Monday of being guided in its foreign policy not by international law but by the "rule of the gun."

    "Our Western partners headed by the United States prefer not to be guided by international law in their practical policies, but by the rule of the gun,"

    "They have come to believe in their exceptionalism and their sense of being the chosen ones. That they can decide the destinies of the world, that it is only them who can be right.".....snip~

    Well it looks like Putin is endorsing the Holy American Empire.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Let's see now. We have military bases in over 140 Countries. Our Military Offense budget is higher than the rest of the World's combined. We gave our largest banks our Treasury so they can try to buy the World's best assets before our currency crashes due to the weight of debt, our money system would crash without a cooperative East-West interactive dichotomy, we support insurrection wherever Large quantities of Energy are located, and, as a Nation, we have profitted handsomely from continuous wars. And that pesky Putin suggests we have a hawkish international policy. He's just being nice. We have put the lunatics in charge of the asylum and they'd just love a war, as long as they don't actually have to participate, but can supervise from nice safe locations. Western Reserve Banks can't seem to get control of Russian and Chinese Banks and that may be the root of the problem. Time will tell. I just read that Ukraine flew its' gold reserves to the New York Federal Reserve. Who'd a thunk it, eh?

    You certainly have a point there. But I get the feeling the current WH doesn't much believe in that exceptionalism - more of a belief in moving towards being a world citizen.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Heya DF .....I didn't pick that up on the gold being flown here to the US. But I did pick up on The Russians now saying they are concerned about the Russian Speaking Estonians inside Estonia. I put up a thread on it in International Politics, as it was trending.

    Considering what the US government has done since 2001, it seems a pretty accurate statement that we live by the rule of the gun.

    Or perhaps the rule of the drone.

    When Vladimir talks, people listen, especially conservatives.

    Yeah....and most liberals and Progressives don't even have half a clue as to what is taking place, with a good Percentage of them not knowing who Putin or Russia is. That's why they do say.....To be aware, is to be Alive!
