After another failed “summit” attempt to turn the ASEAN countries against China, Barack Obama spent his Feb. 16 press conference denouncing and attempting to denigrate Russia, and particularly Russian President Putin’s success in changing the situation in the Mideast.
The Obama Administration is trying to insist, through the media, that the Syria ceasefire the U.S. Secretary of State negotiated with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov, will fail! This, because Obama cannot abide the successful economic and political roles that Russia and China are now playing in the world, and his own failures.
What Putin’s successful role represents, is the transfer of influence on human affairs from the British imperial system — for which Obama has been a willing factor — to the growing Eurasian nations.
It also represents a nearly 20-year successful fight against all jihadi terrorism, both in Russia and internationally — a cooperation which has been offered to the United States continuously since 9/11, and always rejected by Bush and Obama.
China and Russia and India have become the primary agents of changing the future of civilization. The nations of Europe and the United States are headed downward, and will go down unless they radically change their policies on the crisis enveloping their banking systems.
The United States has been, since the death of President Franklin Roosevelt, in a long decline of economic productivity; and since the murders of JFK and RFK, in an accelerating loss of scientific and technological progress, and of conditions of life for most of its citizens.
The issue is not what Obama says; it is what to do with Obama. Will the United States be intelligent enough to join with Russia and China in collaboration in space programs, in international credit banks, in great infrastructure projects, in defeating British-Saudi-spawned terrorism? If not, the United States will be destroyed as a power.
President Putin does not exercise great power, but efficient power, and exercises it intelligently. Increasingly, Russia, China, and India are directing the future history of the planet.
And the United States has — Obama! Were he dumped now, the United States has a historically tested policy of economic recovery which could restore its future: the policy of FDR. Shut down Wall Street’s failing casino banking system, then create national credit to restore productivity and productive employment. It’s the only alternative, and it will not be done with Obama in office.
