Opinion -Vladimir Putin and the madness of humanitarian imperialism – English pravda.ru – John Gelmini

Dr Alf makes interesting points and his belief in democracy is commendable.

However, the world is not run by people who are as idealistic or as passionate about people as he clearly is.

Pravda RU selectively quotes from history because Czarist Russia and its successor has hardly been a model of studied indifference in the world, having created revolutions all over Africa and Central America and the ice storms and harsh winters of the 1970s with their weather warfare capabilities. They are right about the Bilderbergers, who last year in my own county of Hertfordshire met at the Grove Hotel near Watford on the 6th, 7th , 8th and 9th of July and decided as they have done every year since 1954 what the policy on peace and war was going to be; their approach to Eurasia (Russia and China); the “Arc of Crisis ” in the Middle East; and who is going to get elected in Europe and the USA.

The 1 million residents of Hertfordshire got the policing bill for this “private meeting” and despite representation from Hertfordshire County Council, the Chief Constable of Hertfordshire and the Police Commissioner for Hertfordshire, Prime Minister, David Cameron, who attended on the Friday of that week and George Osborne the Chancellor both insisted that the policing bill of £963,000 gbp($1.6 million USD) be paid by the people of Hertfordshire.

One of the things they ( the Bilderderbergers) decided was to create more “colour revolutions” in countries surrounding Russia and what is now happening is the result of that.

The shooting down of the Malaysian airline and the present sanctions might not have happened without the earlier situation becoming inflamed.

In my view, Mrs Merkel’s wise counsel needs to prevail – she has the political skills, stamina and experience to make a lasting difference.

Dr Alf is right, the ratcheting up of sanctions will produce a new Cold War and tip most of Europe back into recession. It is by no means certain that the sanctions on either side would work or create any particular advantage for anyone other than armaments firms, investors in defence stocks and the bankers who provide companies like Raytheon, Gruman,the Carlyle Group and BAE Defence systems with money.

It might be good for those interested in buying gold and for those involved in its sale.

Other than that, it is going to mean costlier foods, more expensive airline travel, higher fuel prices, greater unemployment and misery.

This is how it will be for the bulk of ordinary people, who always get the short end of the stick.

Should things turn ugly with say the annexation of Eastern Ukraine, the result will be deaths in the ensuing war and occupation, global uncertainty about the future, and China and the rest of the BRICS increasingly wanting to do their own thing and get progressively out of the Dollar.

How any of this is in our collective interests I fail to see but I am willing to be enlightened.
