Nothing could be more exceptionally American than the shock and arrogance expressed by the US political class in the aftermath of Russia's annexation of Crimea. They are outraged, I tell you, outraged that the loathed and demonized Russian President Vladimir Putin would call their bluff and refuse to sniff the glove. They had just pissed on his prized showcase of the Sochi Winter Olympics and then with the assistance of fascists, neo-Nazis and assorted other anti-Semitic miscreants toppled the democratically elected government that sits on his border yet there was up until Monday still an expectation of capitulation in the face of US threats. The nerve of Mr. Putin to not submit to having yet more NATO missiles parked next to Russia and then to dare to sign off on the absorption of Crimea followed up by a major speech where he delivered one applause line after the other in blasting western hypocrisy, just who in the hell does this guy think that he is?

Nice job to the neocons who managed to push all right buttons of the idiotic over-matched dupe that is President Barack Obama. Truly it was just as easy as it was in having Cheney and Rummy goading Dubya into attacking and invading Iraq over resentment towards his old man. Now like the 2003 "Shock and Awe" campaign that brought chaos and sectarian vengeance to Baghdad and its surroundings, where the stars and stripes flew proudly over Saddam's torture gulag at Abu Ghraib prison next to an under new management  sign the can add the support of an illegal government backed by savage neo-Nazi thugs to their list of accomplishments. Obama sucks and does it absolutely, never was so much expected of a man who delivered so little. He was never ready for the big leagues as his early efforts at appeasing the American version of the Svodoba party, his foolish assembly of a "Team of Rivals" to fill his administration, the failure to hold the Bush regime accountable for torture and war crimes and the strange decision to retain Bush figures like Robert Gates, John Brennan, Ben Bernanke and Victoria Nuland among others all would come back to haunt him. 

In international affairs, despite the completely undeserved bestowing upon him of the Noble Peace Prize his policies have been a catastrophe. There is the failure to deal with the Palestine situation, getting played by Israeli bully Bibi Netanyahu and his American fifth-column and again, NSA surveillance, the drone murders, the Syrian debacle in which war was narrowly averted and now the very real problem in Ukraine that is mushrooming into something very dangerous. He has been goaded at every point by a corrupt neocon infested media and classic type of liberal killers who conceal their warmongering in the language of promoting human rights at the point of a gun. 

In the Ukraine fiasco Obama has proven once again what a truly shitty poker player that he is and brings to mind the old saying from the gambling movie "Rounders" that "Listen, here's the thing. If you can't spot the sucker in the first half hour at the table, then you ARE the sucker." Alas real life isn't just a movie and Teddy KGB's tell of eating Oreo cookies has nothing on sitting at the big people's table of power geopolitics especially when dealing with the real KGB iceman in Putin. Obama and his foreign policy team were fleeced and sent packing, shorn of all but the most skimpy of fig leafs.

And as for the neocons, now the very same cadre of mouthy embedded deep cowards who have declared war on American values since September 11, 2001 have gotten us into the mother of all messes. They have no shame about it either, the chickenhawk leader of the movement William Kristol, a modern incarnation of Joseph Goebbels just published a screed in his vile propaganda organ The Weekly Standard that called out Americans for not being sufficiently enthusiastic about starting World War III. Like all of the others with the exception of the fanatical war criminal John McCain whose acts of wartime bravery consisted of dropping jellied fire on Vietnamese women and children and Lindsey Graham whose USMC service consisted of flying a desk ALL neocons are chickenhawk cowards. Kristol likes to toot his own horn, especially when advocating for the children of American mothers to be fed into the meat-grinder for his own self-aggrandizement yet his copious biography is strangely (or not so) devoid of military service. 

I excerpt the following from Kristol (whose amazing proclivity for being wrong about every aspect of American foreign policy just landed him a gig at ABC) and his piece "War Weariness as an Excuse":

Are Americans today war-weary? Sure. The Iraq and Afghanistan wars have been frustrating and tiring. Are Americans today unusually war-weary? No. They were wearier after the much larger and even more frustrating conflicts in Korea and Vietnam. And even though the two world wars of the last century had more satisfactory outcomes, their magnitude was such that they couldn't help but induce a significant sense of war-weariness. And history shows that they did.

So American war-weariness isn't new. Using it as an excuse to avoid maintaining our defenses or shouldering our responsibilities isn't new, either. But that doesn't make it admirable.

What a preening little shitbag, if he is so hellbent on war then give the man a rifle and send him to Ukraine, or Iran, Iraq, Syria, Venezuela, Somalia, Egypt, Libya or any of the other countless dozens of countries that the American war machine is meddling in. I will tell you what is definitely not admirable and that is driving the US of A and its citizens into a state of indentured servitude to continue to finance the splendid little wars of cowardly bastards like William Kristol and his ilk. Included in his company is the current stammering ass of a Secretary of State John Kerry who is doing his damned level best to create the conditions for a global thermonuclear war when Russia fights back - this is not some crappy little country like Iraq and they are not going to just roll over.

The longtime member of the cabal of elitist swine that is Yale's Skull and Bones society, Mr. Kerry has that certain sneering contempt that is common with the elite. It is  particularly evident in his ongoing asinine threats of economic sanctions and his snobbish revisionist history that fails to include the United States out of the list of countries who illegally invade and occupy countries while killing their inhabitants for the spoils of war. It is the same sort of flagrant dismissiveness that in a previous historical era led a similarly holier than thou reprobate ruling class being marched off to the guillotines. We could never be so lucky as to have such a sentiment manifest itself within the television addled hive minds of the lethargic lemmings that populate this woebegone land of war and dumbness.

"Yats", our man in Kiev, acting every bit the pencil-necked little bureaucratic lickspittle who hit it big isn't helping matters either. The unelected puppet of the western backed global finance mafia has ordered Ukranian troops to shoot to kill. Infused with a serious case of hubris over his recent visit to the White House Arseniy Yatsenyuk, a typical four-flushing little dipshit risks an ugly fate if he is unable to deliver to the global predatory capitalists the prize of Ukraine without the very lucrative chunk of Crimea missing from what was to be an enormous bounty. It would be nice to see him suffer the same fate of Nicolae Ceausescu or better yet the prototype fascist Benito Mussolini when economic hitmen/women the likes of Victoria  "f*ck the EU" Nuland are passing out cookies to the crowds outside his window. When you make a deal with the devil you had better be damned sure that the man gets paid.

Now just when you would think that it couldn't get any worse that moronic a**hole Joe Biden has shown up in Lithuania to commit the US to engaging in Baltic region war games  to further push Russia into a corner.

Now about those guillotines.....
