This is coming from a country that still has Lenin’s corpse on display.
Link to Putin’s blather, HERE.
“It is alarming that military intervention in internal conflicts in foreign countries has become commonplace for the United States. Is it in America’s long-term interest? I doubt it. Millions around the world increasingly see America not as a model of democracy but as relying solely on brute force, cobbling coalitions together under the slogan “you’re either with us or against us.”
Our military intervention in the Middle East post 9/11, should have been full on, no holds barred, kill them all and let “Allah” sort them out. Instead, we fought piecemeal battles. “With us or against us”…You’re damned right, Vlad. BTW: It’s impossible to take your shit seriously, especially when you’re arming Assad to the teeth.
“But force has proved ineffective and pointless. Afghanistan is reeling, and no one can say what will happen after international forces withdraw. Libya is divided into tribes and clans. In Iraq the civil war continues, with dozens killed each day. In the United States, many draw an analogy between Iraq and Syria, and ask why their government would want to repeat recent mistakes.”
He should be the last one to give lectures on Afghanistan. We helped the mujaheddin kick the Soviets out, after they were bogged down for 10 years. The only mistake we made was walking away. The power vacuum was filled by brutal Taliban thugs who made the country into a Sharia prison. That country was brought to its knees through brutal oppression. The people’s daily lives were turned into a living hell. No music, T.V. , or freedom of speech. Women and young girls were dragged out of school, beaten, and forced to live in the shadows. The Taliban dictated everything, including when everyone would drop what they were doing and bow to Mecca.
Russia’s invasion was for the purpose of propping up its puppet communist government. We invaded to go after the Islamic thugs who attacked this country on 9/11.
Big difference, Vlad.
“I would rather disagree with a case he made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States’ policy is “what makes America different. It’s what makes us exceptional.” It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation.”
Hey Vladimir: Just because a Marxist-leaning dimwit is in the White House, doesn’t mean you get a pass with your propaganda. You know it’s bad when a former KGB cutthroat is allowed to publish his crap in America and run our foreign policy. You may own B. Hussein, but you don’t own us.
As for your mocking U.S. exceptionalism, we are still exceptional enough to say that we defeated your Soviet totalitarian empire. It must really chafe your hide to realize that the former Warsaw Pact evolved into independent, sovereign states, free from that wonderful Communist utopia.
Obama has a lot in common with you. That “fundamental transformation” he touted during the campaign, was a vision to destroy America from the inside out; to rid us of our exceptionalism in exchange for global multiculturalism.
A comment from the site, which reflects most of the opinions:
In 2016, we have the chance to elect a real leader with the balls to know when to get involved when it’s in America’s best interest, decisively eradicate the Islamofascist threat, and tell you to pack sand in your Cossack ass.
