read it all here…………….The Jury is Out and the G20 Shutters at the Verdict

…….The implications of all this should have been clear to this writer
the moment Vladimir Putin stepped off his plane in Ankara. Sorry
to surprise you, but body language and human tendency can tell us a lot,
especially about Vladimir Putin. Let me explain.

Video of Putin’s arrival to Turkey and the G20 is not extraordinary
save one moment. Walking down the steps from the cabin door, Putin is
met by two children in traditional garb and holding flowers. Delighted,
as per usual (Putin loves kids clearly), the Russian president bends
down to embrace and kiss the little children. It is then, in a subtle
but noticeable gesture so uncharacteristic of him, that his excitedness
and anticipation of the meeting to come shows. Usually Vladimir Putin
would linger at any presence of children, in deference to adults or any
meeting etc. This time, albeit gently and tenderly, he stands to sweep
past the little kids. Head focused ahead, after shaking some hands,
Russia’s president boards the limo headed to his rendezvous. When I
noticed this nuance, it made no sense to me. It does now.

Speaking to the G20 audience, Putin rounds
up all the chaos we’ve witnessed these past 24 months. To Ukraine, he
offers postponement and a no interest loan extension on gas debts owed.
However powerful Putin’s play, and his message is though, the Washington
alliance has is resilient in efforts to salvage the new Cold War game.
Secretary of State Ash Carter voices the NATO bugle to draw European
nations to the banner of America over Syria still. New French attacks
on IS reverberates Hollande’s resolve, while Obama’s team shifts for an
apparent back stab on Putin again.

a vicious game of cat and mouse, school-yard nastiness played out on
the world stage. My contemporaries comment often on “how can Putin bear
to talk to them?” This brings me to the “why” of Vladimir Putin’s
superiority over all these western politicians. Amid all the muck and
mire of foreign policy recently, a simple truth emerges not many see.
Putin and Russia have been on the up-and-up mostly, and defending the
truth beats the shit out of defending a big, obvious lie. Russia
attacked no one, NATO and the western oligarchs put the thumb screws
to Russia, period. All the rest of this can be summed up in one sizzling
bit of imagery. Imagine a Russian airliner landing safely in St.
Petersburg. Then imagine Paris people leaving a concert, going out to
dinner, then going home after a pleasant evening out. Instead of them
being dead, gone, murdered by people America was supposed to be bombing
to hell in back for 14 months! Imagine a couple of million refugees
at home, playing ball, cooking dinner, maybe watching the TV.
Instead of seeing them on the  television from the comfort of your
home, cold, afraid, hungry, and alone, weary from having walked half way
around the world to find safety. Beyond this, try and imagine a Muslim
community in Western Europe that has been fully integrated, made part
of the whole of nations here. In Germany, I try and imagine a village
where the Turkish shop is not just some unique grocery shopping
experience for Germans. The Lebanese restaurant owner, or any so-called
“auslander” is not spat out like an epithet. Yes, an American in Germany
sees these not so subtle colloquialisms. Where I come from they used
terms like “nigger” or darkie, and more recently “wet backs” — oh how we
Americans hate when those subjects are brought up.

Now imagine Vladimir Putin did not give the order to intercede
in Syria. Imagine how powerful and far reaching ISIL’s reach would be,
once the Levant became a sovereign state. You realize of course this was
one reason for creating ISIL, don’t you? Syria partitioned a
divide-and-conquer for energy titans to take advantage of.

And Americans learned to fear and hate Muammar
Gaddafi. Thank God for Vladimir Putin. I pray he continues to win, the
alternative is unthinkable.
