Russian President Putin Writes Criticism of USA; New York Times Publishes

Vladimir_Putin_12015When did the New York Times become a propaganda mouthpiece for sitting Russian presidents? Today, actually. Here’s Putin’s op-ed:

MOSCOW — RECENT events surrounding Syria have prompted me to speak directly to the American people and their political leaders. It is important to do so at a time of insufficient communication between our societies.

Relations between us have passed through different stages. We stood against each other during the cold war. But we were also allies once, and defeated the Nazis together. The universal international organization — the United Nations — was then established to prevent such devastation from ever happening again.

The United Nations’ founders understood that decisions affecting war and peace should happen only by consensus, and with America’s consent the veto by Security Council permanent members was enshrined in the United Nations Charter. The profound wisdom of this has underpinned the stability of international relations for decades.

No one wants the United Nations to suffer the fate of the League of Nations, which collapsed because it lacked real leverage. This is possible if influential countries bypass the United Nations and take military action without Security Council authorization.

The potential strike by the United States against Syria, despite strong opposition from many countries and major political and religious leaders, including the pope, will result in more innocent victims and escalation, potentially spreading the conflict far beyond Syria’s borders. A strike would increase violence and unleash a new wave of terrorism. It could undermine multilateral efforts to resolve the Iranian nuclear problem and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and further destabilize the Middle East and North Africa. It could throw the entire system of international law and order out of balance…

    Makes a change from them being a propaganda mouthpiece for the State Department and CIA, I suppose…

    • Bluebird_of_Fastidiousness

      If you want their reply look through their handpicked comments. A lot of ad hominum and red herrings. So… not much of a change, really.

    Kind of nicely takes some pressure off the American government and let’s them save face with a public whipped a into war frenzy by the military industrial media.

    • bsackamano

      The public overwhelmingly is AGAINST more war or aggression. The despots in Washington, slaves really, don’t listen to the people much.

        except the ones in the NSA, FBI, DEA and CIA.

    It’s almost frightening how much that follows my own internal dialogue when trying to look at the society we belong to from an outside perspective… but I’ll go you one further Mr Putin. The underlining issue is that both nations have used chemical weapons for at least 3 generations, the US and Russia have also deployed chemical weapons quite recently in Iraq and Chechnya. Lets not forget that the US and Russia invented modern terrorism during The Cold War. The fatal flaws in that foreign policy of training and arming rebels is that they often have elements of extremism and have in turn used that training to strike within Russia and the US. This is what happens when you have KGB and CIA men holding the highest offices in the land.

    1. The UN is simply the NWO’s Trojan Horse, so no I WANT the downfall of the UN.
    2. The USSR, was financed and aided as well as given US technology BY Wall Street/International banksters as well as Communists like Alger Hiss and others IN the US government. This is standard Rothschild procedure of playing both sides. Iron Mountain Report stuff too. You ALWAYS need a viable enemy as a nation to them. War is necessary to them. Israel is the ENEMY of true Americans.
    3. I believe Putin is simply being manipulated and playing the game of the Zionist Oligarchs to APPEAR to be “resisting” the US but really WW3 is planned and being carried out. Sun Tzu(along with Machiavelli he’s there patron Saint other than Lucifer their God) says you need to be fluid with your plan so this may just be a bump in the road for them. ALL of the Oligarchs assets are in the WESTERN Banking system, there’s your clue.
    4. The Pope is no different he’s another cog in the wheel. Sad that so many fall for this game they play knowingly or not, like WW2 and WW1.
    5. Destroying sovereign nations is JOB 1 for the NWO/Illuminati/Zionist crowd so Putins anti-exceptional tirade fits in nicely with that message now that he’s the “good guy”.
    6. The American Middle Class IS the target. Once they are completely destroyed we will ALL have no hope. The BRUTAL NWO dictatorship will be upon us. Gulags, rations, world “money”, implants, forced population controls, eugenics, etc etc
    7. BUY GUNS and ammo, food stuffs etc Remember what Mao said about guns!!

      I’ve decided to turn your posts into a drinking game. I’ll let everyone just guess the rules.

      I’d just like to point out that #5 is a statist complaint.

  • Andrew

    I feel like I’m stuck in a restaurant while two mob bosses wave guns around and lecture each other on ethics.

    • Heath

      No kidding, except I think they are out back wrestling shirtless.

      • Rob Lai

        Its Putin. He probably WROTE this thing shirtless…

        I was once told an anecdote by someone from a TV crew that they were filming something in Russia and were forced by the authorities to stop because Putin was in the area. A security perimeter had been set up while he attended a bare-knuckle boxing match.

  • Ted Heistman

    I kind of like Putin the way I admire dangerous wild animals from afar…

    He’s right. War Inc. is wrong. The UN is the only chance for peace, and that was its purpose for coming into existence. Unfortunately it is powerless against states covertly funding insurgencies, which ours ramped up today in Syria. The CIA is now distributing weapons, as their Saudi, Turkish, Libyan and Qatari friends have been doing for years. If you think having our “allies” manufacture more Al Qaeda brigades to destroy the desired enemy is a good idea, then I really don’t know what to say. Analyzing what Putin actually said, he makes perfect sense, and I’ve pretty much been saying the same things.
