A much-ignored huge news report from Reuters on Friday, February
"Chinese diplomat tells West to
consider Russia's security concerns over Ukraine."
China's Ambassador to Belgium (which has
the capital of the EU) said that the "nature and root cause" of the
Ukrainian conflict is "the West," and that,
"The West should abandon the
zero-sum mentality, and take the real security concerns of
Russia into consideration."
By "real security concerns," he is
clearly referring to NATO's expansion right up to Russia's border,
and America's surrounding Russia with U.S. military bases, now
increasingly including the most strategic of Russia's bordering
In other words, this diplomat says:
"the West" has a "zero-sum" attitude
toward Russia, instead of seeking to move forward with an
approach in which neither side among the nuclear superpowers
benefits at the other's expense - the entire world moves forward
This is a direct criticism of
Barack Obama, and of all of the pro-Obama,
anti-Putin, EU leaders.
It's also an implicit repudiation of Obama's having repeatedly
referred to the U.S. as "the
one indispensable nation." (Another example of that
Obama keeps saying:
every other nation, except the U.S.,
He clearly thinks that Russia is.
That's not merely an insult: it's an act of provocation; it is
virtually asking for a fight. And all for what? For whose nuclear
This criticism of the aggressive nationalist Obama does not come
from China's top leadership, but it would not have come at all if
they had not approved of it in advance.
China thus now tells Obama: Stop it. Stop it in word, and
Implicitly, China is also telling Obama:
hina is not dispensable, either.
In fact, the entire mentality, which
Obama embodies, is not just callous and insulting; it's dangerous.
G.W. Bush, Obama is
increasingly an embarrassment to his country.
Shortly before Obama's coup in Ukraine, Gallup International issued,
on 30 December 2013,
a poll of 65 countries, which found
"The US was the overwhelming choice
(24% of respondents) for the country that represents
the greatest threat to peace in the world
This was followed by Pakistan (8%),
China (6%), North Korea, Israel and Iran (5%). Respondents in
Russia (54%), China (49%) and Bosnia (49%) were the most fearful
of the US as a threat."
More details of that poll were reported
When the U.S. Government is hankering for a war with the only other
nuclear superpower, such findings certainly make sense. And the 54%
of Russians who cited the U.S. as the greatest threat to peace would
probably be far higher today.
But Gallup International didn't publish
any update on that poll-question, perhaps because the original
financial backer (which was unnamed) wouldn't fund it.
Already, the finding was bad enough. But Obama keeps calling the
one indispensable nation in the world." He keeps telling
other nations: you are dispensable. He keeps rubbing it in - not the
fact, but his own nationalism.
It reminds some people of Mussolini, and of Hitler.
But Obama pretends to be a democrat,
not a fascist. Maybe he's just a bigger liar than they were.
Maybe that's what he is so arrogant about: his terrific
ability to deceive.
After all, he won the 2009 Nobel 'Peace'
Prize for it:
for lying. For
misrepresenting himself as being progressive, instead of
Well, now: anyone who doesn't know the
reality is deluded by propaganda - and it's not coming from Russia,
nor from China. It's coming from their own nation's 'news'
Which heads-of-state want to be publicly associated with a foreign
leader like that, one who tells the given leader's public:
your nation is dispensable.
Fools. Only fools...
Obama is encouraging other countries to oppose the United States.
Wow... He's the black
George W. Bush...
