Aww, That's a Shame - Soros Complains Russia Now 'Global Power' While EU 'Falling Apart'

Has the billionaire regime-change architect finally admitted defeat?

A dejected George Soros confessed yesterday that not all is proceeding according to his grand design.

Attending a London pow-wow with fellow Russia-haters, the world's most infamous private "democracy" promoter had this to say, according to Reuters:

Billionaire investor George Soros said on Monday he saw Russia emerging as a global power as the European Union collapses, in much the same way as the EU flourished when the Soviet Union started falling.

Soros added that he felt "more than ever" that the EU's destiny hinged on Ukraine's future, speaking in London at an event hosted by the Open Russia, a Russian opposition movement founded by Kremlin critic Mikhail Khodorkovsky.

So the future of the European Union hinges on a bankrupt, failed state run by oligarchs, Nazi militia, mafia and general psychopaths. I'm sure the French, Germans, and Italians are gratified to hear that. Somehow I think they probably disagree.

European nations have lost billions in trade with Russia since the introduction of sanctions - which they are apparently renewing once again at Washington's demand. 

If this is the future they will be tied to, all the more reason for the British to vote to leave the EU on June 23.

But Soros hasn't given up on the EU dream completely - he wrote in The Guardian today attempting to scare British voters that going through with Brexit will collapse the pound. 

Soros is probably growing frustrated at the increasingly hard time he is having at building the new world order he wants. Russia's not cooperating, and populations in Europe are supporting EU-skeptic parties while American voters are supporting Trump.

Here's hoping he meets continued disappointment. His misfortune is the world's gain.
