You can basically say that you are dealing with an epic beat down. Worse still, when that beat down exposes a community organizer, in way over his head, playing at being president, it gets pathetically ugly. And Vladimir Putin, old KGB boss that he is, just finished schooling the American left, and giving Obama an epic shoe to the nuts, when he used their own bullshit to kneecap their sorry asses. Of course old Vlad would know this shit like the back of his hand. The shit the American left spouts is straight out of the KGB training manual and part & parcel of the lingo used by all the worshippers of the almighty collectivist state. From the Spectator article:
There is an unspoken sub-text at play here: what President Putin said in his column is pretty much what American liberals and leftists have been saying about the United States since the 1960s. From the standpoint of American liberals, there is nothing the least bit new or controversial in anything Mr. Putin wrote in his column. He is merely hoisting President Obama and his liberal friends by their own ideological petard.
Putin made three general points:
First, it is contrary to international law for a member of the United Nations to attack another country without approval from the U.N. Security Council. A U.S. attack on Syria, he writes, would undermine the legitimacy of the United Nations and encourage other countries to resort to armed force to settle international differences. As he writes, “Under current international law, force is permitted only in self-defense or by the decision of the Security Council. Anything else is unacceptable under the United Nations Charter and would constitute an act of aggression.”
Second, the major powers should avoid armed intervention into internal conflicts and civil wars in other countries. Such interventions are likewise illegitimate under international law. They are also ineffective and typically result only in an escalation in the level of violence.
Third, the United States is not an “exceptional” nation, or no more exceptional than any other nation is, and this belief promotes a sense that the United States is not bound by conventional rule of international conduct. Since Americans believe they are exceptional, he suggests, they believe they can make their own rules. As he writes, “It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. Their policies differ, too. We are all different, but when we ask for the Lord’s blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal.”
Where have we heard Mr. Putin’s principles before? They are in fact basic articles of faith among American liberals who have been saying for decades that the U.S. should not use military force without United Nations authorization, we should not intervene in civil wars abroad, and the idea of American exceptionalism is a myth used to cover up crimes against women and minorities at home and the poor and oppressed abroad.
Barack Obama at one time or another has expressed support for all three of Mr. Putin’s principles. During the 2008 presidential campaign, he said that the intervention in Iraq was illegal because it was not authorized by the United Nations. In 2009, when asked about American exceptionalism, President Obama said, “I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.” In other words, we are all exceptional alike, just as Mr. Putin said.
If America and Americans were not et again getting fucked over by leftists and their stupidity, this whole thing would be comical. Being force fed the shit sandwich you have been telling everyone else to gobble up right before being sent to your room, is just priceless. Putin’s move was genius. He took the same shit these pseudo-marxist-nanny stater scumbags that are pile driving America into the shit have been spouting for decades, and used it to expose their hypocritical bullshit. That’s precisely why the WH had to dismiss the whole thing so fast and hope the LSM would help them bury the story.
Look, I have very little love for Putin. The guy is a scumbag. But he is dead to rights doing what he did to these idiots. It is fucking amateur hour in Washington D.C. It has been amateur hour for 5 years now. These scumbags lied their way into power, pretending they would do better. They made their predecessor, whom was not even close to the monster they made him out to be, and at best was a milder version of the usual nanny state loving politician without the right political branding, look inept and evil at the same time. Then they take over and they actually do the very things they made stories up about him doing. They are setting up the police state they pretend the other guy was doing, for real. They have turned us from a country of laws to one where there are different rules for them and for the rest of us. And the saddest thing of all is how many stupid people think that the government system these leftist idiots love so much, which constantly do dumb shit like this, is better than the alternative.
Putin is right to call out these bumbling idiots. He has done us all a favor. Now lets hope enough people wise up to the fact that the left is all bluster and lots of real stupid. This is Hope & Change, front & center, for us all to see. Obama’s idea of the fundamental change he wanted for America is now there for all to see. Hate to say “I told you so”, but yeah, I told you so. Lets hope we can walk back the damage these clowns have done. If we don’t the world is not going to be a better place: its going to be a much uglier one.
