Bush Speech Continues Dangerous Brinkmanship with Russia

In the video here, Bush tells us Condi has met with the globalist cartel in Brussels and they have decided Russia needs to forget about the rape of South Ossetia by the “democrat” Saakashvili and remove their military pronto. Russia, of course, will not do this, even though Russian president Dmitri Medvedev has told Nicolas Sarkozy, president of the EU, that Russia will begin leaving Georgia on Monday. For the Russians, South Ossetia and Abkhazia are part of Russia. Sarkozy warned Medvedev of “serious consequences” if Moscow fails to implement the globalist brokered cease-fire deal. Sarkozy and the EU, the scowling Condi and Bush the Clueless, all are blowing hot air. Last week Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Georgia should “forget about any talk about … territorial integrity,” that is to say claiming dominion over South Ossetia, where Saakashvili’s goons and ethnic cleansers killed over 2,000 civilians.

In his speech, Bush said Russia faces a choice “to act in a 21st-century way, [to] fully integrate into the international institutions,” that is to say Russia should allow the banksters and one-worlders to trod all over her.

It should be noted that Russia has attempted to make peace with NATO and the EU, but to no avail. Russia offered to join NATO but NATO made it clear no such an invitation was offered. “If nobody expects us in NATO why should we be happy about the expansion of NATO and its movement toward our borders?” mused Putin after the snub.

In response, the U.S. declared its intention to place a radar base in the Czech Republic and interceptor missiles in Poland, part of a supposed missile “defense shield” to protect against what the United States calls “rogue” states, such as Iran and North Korea, an absurdity at best as missiles from these “rogue states” are unable to reach Europe. The missiles are instead designed to prevent Russia from responding to an attack.

Bush said Russia faces a choice “to act in a 21st-century way, [to] fully integrate into the international institutions,” that is to say Russia should allow the banksters and one-worlders to trod all over her.
“Russia is considering arming its Baltic fleet with nuclear warheads for the first time since the cold war,” reports the Sunday Times. “According to the report, under the Russian plans nuclear warheads could be supplied to submarines, cruisers and fighter bombers of the Baltic fleet based in Kaliningrad, a Russian enclave between Poland and Lithuania.”

Late last week, Russia warned Poland it faced nuclear attack if it allows the U.S. to place the supposed missile “defense shield” on its territory. “Poland, by deploying (the system) is exposing itself to a strike… 100 per cent,” General Anatoly Nogovitsyn, the deputy chief of staff of Russia’s armed forces, told the Interfax news agency. Medvedev said the deal “absolutely, clearly demonstrates what we had said earlier: the deployment has the Russian Federation as its target.”

As the corporate media tells us, other bankster fiefdoms carved off the corpse of the Soviet Union are worried about the emerging Russian response as well. “The sense of alarm may be greatest here in Ukraine,” writes the International Herald Tribune. “Since the Orange Revolution began in 2004, bringing the pro-Western Viktor Yushchenko to power after widespread protests, Ukraine has been a thorn in Moscow’s side, though perhaps not as sharp as the outspoken Georgian president, Mikheil Saakashvili.”

A planted thorn, no doubt, as Ukraine’s “Orange Revolution” was the result of concerted subversion by the likes of the Center for Non-Violent Resistance (otherwise known as Otpor, a Soros Foundation and NED project tasked with taking out Slobodan Milošević in the former Yugoslavia), Freedom House (another NED project funded by the Ford Foundation, Soros, USAID, and the CIA operative Richard Mellon Scaife), Soros’ Open Society Institute, the National Democratic Institute (chaired by the neolib baby killer, Madeleine K. Albright, and funded by NED, USAID, the Citigroup Foundation, the World Bank, and the United Nations), the International Republican Institute (created by NED and responsible, along with the CIA, for the botched coup in Venezuela), and a smattering of European globalist cartels and support organizations, including the European Union and the Council of Europe.

If Ukraine is “a thorn in Moscow’s side,” it was planned that way by the above enumerated globalist, one-world interests. In fact, the banksters, not satisfied with reducing former Soviet states to groveling peonage, want to carve Russia up into malleable vassal states and loot the country’s massive natural resources, specifically its oil reserves. The Ukraine thorn became especially apparent after the globalists went over Russia’s head and held private talks with oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky about arranging a sale to transnational Chevron of a large chunk of what was then Russia’s largest oil company, Yukos-Sibneft.

The following year, in 2004, after the arrest of oligarch Khodorkovsky by Russian police, Russia experienced CIA and U.S. State Department-sponsored and financed putsches in Georgia and Ukraine. “Seen from Moscow eyes, the attempt of NATO to take Ukraine or Kievan Rus, the historic heart of Slavic Russia for almost one thousand years, along with Russia and Belarus, was not only militarily a grave threat. It was also culturally and economically potentially catastrophic given the distribution of industry and infrastructure between Ukraine and Russia dating back to the 1930’s,” writes F. William Engdahl. “However, the proverbial ’straw that broke the Russian camel’s back’ was the decision by Washington to pursue nuclear missile defense installations in NATO members Poland and the Czech Republic.” An additional final straw was Georgia’s U.S. and Israel directed invasion of South Ossetia.

As Condi scowls for the cameras and Bush mangles his speech delivery at the compound in Crawford, Texas, the Russians are preparing a response to the South Ossetia outrage, NATO’s encirclement, and the installment of U.S. missiles on its border. “Russia must adequately react to the agreement signed between Washington and Warsaw on US missile defense shield in Poland’s territory,” declared Vyacheslav Popov, member of Russian Council of Federation and former commander of Russian North Fleet, on August 15. It is said Russia will consider new target lists in response to the latest provocations. “There is no alternative, we should enhance our security,” said Popov.

In other words, thanks to the heavy plodding of the neolibs and their faltering neocon cousins, your hometown in America may soon be a target for Russia’s thermonuclear weapons. Russia has more than 660 missiles capable of striking the United States. As F. William Engdahl noted last week, the “trigger for such a war is not Georgia ’s right to annex South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Rather, it is US insistence on pushing NATO and its missile defense right up to Russia ’s door.”
