Bush vs Putin - Adults only...

by the Foreign Press Foundation Wednesday, Mar. 02, 2005 at 9:34 AM

Extra: FPF's Secret audio - 'For Your Ears Only' - 55 seconds soundtrack - (adults only) :-) - * Bushwhackers soundbite of 'bringing democracy'.

Not all that serious for once...

"The USA today acts as the worst kind of international vulture".

by Henk Ruyssenaars

FPF/Europe - March 1 - 2005 - It was a week ago, and Igor started it. Igor is not just anybody, in daily life he is the Commander of the Ukrainian Navy: Vice Admiral Igor Knyaz. And apparently Igor wanted to get involved in geopolitics: with Condoleezza Rice, some stolen missiles, the whole 'Air Force One Flying Circus', and the seriously flopped meeting of the American and Russian Presidents G. Bush and V. Putin in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia.

Igor's overture was quite embarrassing, because the 22nd of February, US 'Secretary of State' Condoleezza Rice and Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov

were supposed to sign (and signed) the so called 'Bratislava agreement', which - for good reasons - nobody has heard about.

Designed to toughen the control over shoulder-fired missiles like 'Stingers' and the Russian 'Strela'* (NATO name: 'Gremlin' - - which is capable of bringing down huge airplanes when in the hands of the 'wrong' terrorists, which are all other terrorists than 'ours'.

Sometimes our own terrorists, the Western secret services, our 'Dogs of War' and 'Special Forces' like the SSB - (SS-A was German) - in secret operations called PsyOps, bring down planes too, behead, kidnap, torture, jail, deny, lie and fake; blow up nightclubs or synagogues, banks etc. which then the other terrorists are blamed for, but which we have to do to reach our goals. The Roman empire wasn't build in one

day either...

Missing Missiles

And then, in the tense atmosphere of the Bratislava meeting, Igor walks in - the day before - and makes an official statement about how he's looking for one of

his Strela shoulder-fired missiles weapon systems and some missiles, which he just found out had been stolen. Strela's gone astray one might say. The

[nationalist] russian newspaper 'Pravda' ('the Truth') found Igor's behavior strange too, and wrote: ''It is noteworthy that Igor Knyaz released the statement a day


Apparently it has been difficult to explain to 'Russian expert' 'Condi' Rice, why the Ukrainian authorities 'found' the system missing only eight years after it was

'lost'... And why Igor blew it with his 'February Surprise'. But there's still hope: Igor has visited 'the site of the incident' and the proud commander chairs the

Special Committee for lost Strelas which has been formed to investigate it.

But Rice obviously didn't like Navy commander Igor's nasty news. [Probably preferring Strega [ to Strela] showing an appalling

'arrogance based on ignorance': ''so 'diplomacy' and 'tact' are two pages that Condoleezza Rice might wish to take from the Russian President's book'', the comment in Pravda read.

Was 'Intriguing Igor' just putting another log on the Russian/US bonfire? Trying to get the overwhelming and deadly mix of US ignorance up the chimney?

Because, according to Pravda: "The whole atmosphere already had been poisoned in advance, by insolent and intrusive comments from both Condoleezza Rice and George Bush in the days preceding the meeting.''

Colleague Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey, an editor and journalist since the year 2000 writing for this new Pravda, based in Portugal and Brazil, with 40 years of

experience - is quite worked up about the 'Naked Emperor'-behavior of Bush and his delegation.

According to him: ''George Bush raised issues which underline Washington's arrogance and lack of tact over Russia's internal and external policies'.

But, president Putin has after Bush's blatant insults become "the Chosen One" as 'Man of the Week' because - as Timothy writes: ''he was responding with

'diplomacy and tact'; two pages that Condoleezza Rice might wish to take from the Russian President's book.''

For Bush c.s. my European colleague Timothy explains today*: '' that Freedom of the Press in Russia is about responsibility, it is about curtailing the trend for millions of dollars to be passed around in exchange for state secrets. Surely, this is common knowledge? Surely someone in the US administration could have warned George Bush about what was really happening before he made an idiot of himself (yet again)?

So for the following four years, George Bush is going to have to read articles such as this one, pulling his speech apart point by point and receiving broadsides

from his interlocutors.

Moscow has to centralize certain powers, otherwise opportunistic states such as the USA today, which acts as the worst kind of international vulture, a scavenger, will try to foster dissent and take advantage of Russia's resources.

If George W. Bush considers "liberty" as invading a sovereign nation based upon lies, committing an act of mass murder, slaughtering tens of [Url.: - HR] thousands of civilians in the name of "freedom and democracy", winning "hearts and minds" through "shock and awe" tactics, it is evident that he is intellectually constrained to the table upon which he threw a record number of Texans.

[FPF - Bush/Texas - Url.:]

He is intellectually, diplomatically and legally moribund, he is limited to uttering Cold War Slogans and he has a retentive understanding of the dossiers. [Here all people with a normally functioning brain, like Nobel Peace Prize winner and former PM of South Africa Nelson Mandela and Timothy agree:]

So Timothy goes on, asking: "Who is governing the USA? It certainly isn't George W. Bush. He doesn't even know what he is speaking about. While we are speaking about freedom and democracy and so on, a couple of questions. Where are Iraq's Weapons of Mass Destruction? No, we cannot ask Dr. David Kelly,

because he was the one who knew they didn't exist and committed suicide. - (Or was he 'suicided' ? - - HR)

And how to justify the firing* of CNN journalists, criticizing the USA's act of mass murder in Iraq? Freedom and (BANG!!) Democracy (BANG!!) folks,

winning hearts (BANG!!) and minds by (BANG!!) 'Shock and (BANG!!) Awe tactics'.

Speaking about democracy, did George Bush's Washington use the processes of dialogue and discussion in the UN Security Council? Or did it launch a criminal act of mass murder against Iraq, against every norm in the book?

Certainly, Russia wants to have friendly relations with the USA just as it fosters good relations with all nations. But is this made easy by a Washington which

talks and practices the law of the jungle while pretending to stand up for the rule of law? [end item]

Anybody else who starts understanding why Bush said:

We don't need a fresh start in my relations with Putin?

Don't mix up two things: Colin Powell in this rather exclusive interview does not say he is 'sorry' for all the US/Israeli genocides, but says: 'I'm very sore'...

He who travels far will often see things

Far removed from what he believed was the Truth.

When he talks about it in the fields at home,

He is often accused of lying,

For the obdurate people will not believe

Inexperience, I believe,

Will give little credence to my song.
