Russia is only a 'threat' if you oppose a multipolar world
Speaking at the Atlantic Council in Washington on June 5, second in command of nonsense, trickery and other assorted dimwittedness, Vice President Mike Pence weighed in with his imaginings of Russia's map-making abilities:
"From Russia's efforts to redraw international borders by force, to Iran's attempts to destabilize the Middle East, to the global menace of terrorism that can strike anywhere at any time, it seems that the world is more dangerous today than at any point since the fall of communism a quarter century ago."
Evidently, Pence couldn't even manage a cursory check with Pentagon and military industrial complex hooligans and their efforts during the last quarter of a century and more to redraw borders, initiate regime change and decimate countries in the Middle East before casting fish tales about Russia.
Omit, lie, obfuscate - it's all in a days work:
Leonid Slutsky, chairman of the Russian State Duma's Foreign Affairs Committee, said Pence's comments "sum up dozens and hundreds of anti-Russian speeches" that have been heard in the United States since Trump was elected last November.
Konstantin Kosachyov, head of the Federation Council's International Affairs Committee, said Pence's remarks were "the pinnacle of absurdity," adding that Russia and Iran are only "dangerous to the [U.S.-dominated] unipolar world."
We could point Mr. Pence's attention to the hundreds of speeches from Putin, Lavrov and Zakharova offering cooperation and a willingness to work together but he's not interested in all that rot, as neither are the legions of bogus bureaucrats, government official hobgoblins, alphabet soup agencies and present administration con artists.
He's got a bag full of unfounded denunciations to tell the world about. Any type of cooperation with Russia, and especially Iran, Trump's current favorite whipping post, is not to be explored beyond the hearty handshakes and wily words from government snake charmers who have never yet, and never will tell the plain truth, the whole truth of all affairs both foreign and domestic.
We could also point to Russia's actions (still louder than words) that back up their speeches of cooperation and willingness to work toward peace and fight terrorism as documented on this fine website but that would require a belief that Washington, along with its partners, had any interest in peace. They don't.
The countless U.S. military operations in other countries, just from 1990 to the present, speak volumes of the monopolists' intentions of casting as demons any nation which doesn't adhere to their penchant for an end to national sovereignty.
Destabilization, destruction, invasion and occupation have been Washington's answer to noncompliance of the globalist dream.
The following day, Pence then did an encore in deep thinking, false claims and other idiotic notions at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast, with the Washington Post detailing some of his mensa-like quips with the headline, ‘President Pence’ is sounding better and better.
Dana Wilbank's article then gets down to some serious dreaming:
"The contrast between the reckless president and his responsible understudy has me thinking, not for the first time, how much better things would be if Pence were president. Trump shows no ability to correct course, to pull himself out of a self-destructive spiral. It may be premature to talk of impeachment or resignation, but Trump’s path is unsustainable. Republicans in Congress would be sensible to start thinking about an endgame, and the former Indiana governor may be the their best hope — and all of ours."
Sure, why not. Ranks right up there with Santa Claus, the tooth fairy and Easter bunny.
Pence concluded urging Catholics to “continue to be the hands and feet of our Savior, reaching in with love and compassion, embracing the dignity of all people of every background and every experience.”
Evidently, embracing the dignity of all people doesn't include the thousands of innocents who have died at the hands of Washington's endless wars nor the dignity of Russians, Iranians, Syrians and any other nation of people who don't subscribe to Washington's continued policies of decimation and destruction and their vision of a unipolar world.
Bush, Cheney, Obama, Biden, Kerry, Clinton, Trump, Pence, et al, reminds us of H.L. Mencken's observation on politicians: "the saddest life is that of a political aspirant under democracy. His failure is ignominious and his success is disgraceful."
