» Is Washington Coming To Its Senses?

There is much speculation about US Secretary of State John Kerry’s
rush visit to Russia in the wake of Russia’s successful Victory Day
celebration on May 9. On May 11, Kerry, who was snubbing Russia on the
9th, was on his way to Russia, and Putin consented to see him on May 12.

As time passes we will find out why Kerry was snubbing Putin on May 9
and 3 days later was criticizing Washington’s puppet regime in Ukraine.
For what is known at this time, a possible explanation is that
Washington is coming to its senses.

If you watched the 1 hour 20 minute video of the Victory Day Parade,
you are aware that the celebration sent a powerful message. Russia is a
first class military power, and Russia is backed by China and India,
whose soldiers marched with Russia’s in the parade.

So, while the increasingly irrelevant West, absorbed in its own
self-importance, snubbed the celebration of the victory that the Red
Army gave them over Hitler, the three largest countries in the world
were present united. Russia has the largest land mass, and China and
India, also large land masses, have the world’s largest populations.

The celebration in Moscow made it clear that Washington has
failed miserably to isolate Russia. What Washington has done is to make
the BRICS more unified.

With the President of China sitting at the right hand of Putin,
the celebration also made it completely clear even to the morons in the
Obama regime that Washington is no longer the Uni-power.

Consider now the impact on Washington’s vassal states in Europe,
the crux of the American Empire. Europeans are aware that two of the
most powerful military states in history did not survive their invasions
of Russia. Napoleon lost the Grande Army in Russia, and Hitler lost the
Wehrmacht in Russia. It has dawned on Europeans that they are being
shoved into conflict with Russia in the interest of Washington’s claim
to be the World Hegemon. Europeans are accustomed to obey Washington,
but when it came to being forced into conflict with Russia, Europeans
began to express dissent. Signs of an independent European foreign
policy appeared with Merkel and Hollande’s meeting with Putin to resolve
the Ukrainian crisis orchestrated by Washington.

Faced with the failure of its policy of isolating Russia and the
emergence of an independent foreign policy in Europe, Washington sent
Kerry as a supplicant to Putin to work out a way to de-escalate the
Ukrainian crisis. Putin being a peacemaker will permit Washington to
save face. But this will not please the neoconsevatives or the
military/security complex. The former are invested heavily in claims of
Amerika Uber Alles, and the latter are lusting for the abundant revenues
from a new cold, or hot, war.

Obama, Kerry, and Cameron have to become magicians. They have to transition from demonizing Putin to working with him.

Having failed with force against Russia, the West is now
employing seduction. If Western peoples hope to escape from the Police
State that Washington has imposed on the entire Western World, we must
pray that Putin does not fall for the seduction.

There is no world leadership in the West. There is only
selfishness and hubris. Western “leadership” is exploitative. The West
loots the non-West and is now turning on itself with its looting of
Ireland and Greece, with Italy, Spain, and Portugal the next targets for
looting. The American public itself has been looted of its jobs, career
aspirations, and civil liberties.

The Western model of “democratic capitalism” turns out to be
neither democratic nor capitalist, but a form of fascism ruled by an
oligarchy. The United States is where regime change is most badly
