Putin Post-Mortem: "Unipolar Model Of World Is Over... Give Us Our Money"

Tyler Durden's picture

Vladimir Putin has concluded his lengthy interview having covered everything from "the end of the unipolar model of the world" - i.e. de-dollarization - to US and Europe's responsibility for Ukraine's "full-scale civil war." The Russian leader noted that he's "trying to help Ukraine" but following the loans from the IMF asks "where's our money?" and warned that US sanctions have had little effect on the Russian economy but will have a boomerang effect. The following distills his 120 minute discussion... Putin "expects common sense to prevail."

Putin "expects common sense to prevail."

Now that's funny, expecting the numpties in charge of the west to demonstrate common sense...

If this was true in the US, we never would have elected Obozo.

strannick's picture

Yea, cause like Don Corleone, he has a Red Army behind him when he's saying it.

Could you imagine Obummer speaking intelligently like this?

Spastica Rex's picture

If the script was well prepared.

Headbanger's picture

666:  You beat me to it..

I was about to say, can you imagine Obama using the term "common sense" without getting a laugh?

Putin is making our ass hat president look more and more like the liar joke he really is!

StacksOnStacks's picture

Where's Slapdick?  He needs to get in here and really fuck shit up!  I bet he's on the course again.  That stupid fucker!

Thank you obama - you rat cunt.

thats what we deserve for accepting a series of manchurian candidates chosen for us against our best interests.

Tyler... that's a whole lot of Pootin there.

and thank ya!

Perhaps that isn't so much Obama looking bad as doing his job - run the Titantic into the iceberg as fast as possible. 

I don't know.  I wouldn't doubt it either way.

"I'd like to address you in your own language, but I don't speak Austrian."

another blooper.

He probably still does not know where "Ukraine" is on a map. Betcha!

Seriously, did Obama say that?

 

If so, can you reference when and where?

 

Sometimes it's tough to tell sarc from serious; thanks!!

.. and the teleprompter fully charged...

Easy to imagine.

Not fair, not legal.

That is 'american' speech...

BigJim's picture

In Chinaaaaa, AnAnonymous' masters don't understanding meaning of fair or legal, just blobbing up the when and the where they see are fit.

11b40's picture

Just as in the U.S., eh Big Jim?

Really too bad we pissed away the high ground since Y2K.  The 1900's were the American Century.  2000's, not so much.  

AnAnonymous's picture

But China is a trusty partner for Russia, that is much appreciated on this site.

Type to revise the song.

11b40's picture

My goodness, AnAnonymous.  Are you the new replacement for the old AnAnonymous?  

Your writing style seems to have undergone dramatic improvement.

Maybe what you don't quite grasp about many of the commenters on ZH is the amount of disgust about the CHANGES we have seen in our society and our leadership.  Few, if any, harbor any love and affection for other models of structuring societies.  We just want our model back.  We want our Constitution honored.  We want our nation to become a NATION OF LAWS again.  We want courts that respect property rights and liberties of individulas, and elected representatives that work for the citizens that vote for them.  

So, it is with with various mixtures of anger, disgust, resentment, and even fear that we call out the piss-poor, corrupt politicians, bankers, multi-nationals, and war mongers in the MIC.  We long for leadership that will be strong and honest, and try to restore some semblance of honor & integrity.  Humans will never be perfect, so no system designed and controlled by them could ever be without problems.  We had the best ever, though, in my humble opinion.  It has been gradually torn apart, however, as is visible to anyone paying close attention.  Don't expect us to kiss the asses of those we consider responsible, and don't misjudge when we express admiration for foreigners who show the leadership skills and sense of patriotism we wish to restore.

James_Cole's picture

Few, if any, harbor any love and affection for other models of structuring societies.  We just want our model back.

Exactly right, the good ole' days when children worked in coal mines, black people knew their place, standard oil ran the country, mexicans didn't want to immigrate and if you weren't born rich 99.999% chance on being dirt poor for life. Almost there again! 

 

11b40's picture

Aw, fuck off James.  You know we worked hard to overcome all of what you outlined, and admit yourself that we are going backward.  

James_Cole's picture

Sure, I generally agree with you - follow constitution & respect peoples rights...but don't go backward. You maybe weren't saying it but there's definitely a lot of people who have a narrow recollection of how much better previous decades were. 

TheReplacement's picture

Why don't you take people for what they say without interjecting your own bias into their thoughts?

DerdyBulls's picture

"...and elected representatives that work for the citizens that vote for them."

Isn't this sorta the problem we have now? That they ARE working for the citizens that vote for them. The citizenry needs a ideological enema and a dose of liberty re-education as do our "representatives". How about having representatives that don't work very much at all because there's such limited work actually necessary. We'd all be better off.   

TheReplacement's picture

Good catch.  They need to work for all.  They should work for much less as well.  How about $25K per year with travel, vouchers for room and board as well as health insurance and the like - for the time they are in office.  Tro in some term limits and we might have something.

DerdyBulls's picture

National governance is so far removed from my influence why bother? Half the voters don't pay taxes. The system is stupid. So are the people who run it. Many in Congress had successful, productive lives pre-government. Why is government a freaking promotion? They go there with "good intentions" and drink the kool-aid via beer bong and if not get by osmosis. What the...? Idiocy. 

Reaper's picture

Obama would need audio input into his ear so he could correctly pronounce the multiple words he doesn't understand on his Teleprompter. Questions would have to be provided in advance, so intelligent sounding answers could be provided by the Teleprompter.

Singelguy's picture

I was impressed with his deliberate responses to questions. No hesitation, no Teleprompter, and no um's and ah's. Love to see Obummer in a similar platform.

Monty Burns's picture

Never forget that Obummer wouldn't be there were he someone like Putin.  He's just a ventriloquest's dummy with the Permannent Government's hand up his ass.

lakecity55's picture

He can't do it.

His brain is fried from dope and homo sex.

I actually think he has about a tenth-grade education, and I am giving him a break here.

Common sense will prevail? When has that ever happened?

April 19, 1775 and July 4, 1776.

Putin is the only one on stage worthy of the term 'World Leader"

The rest, especially USA/EU asshats are basically bureaucratic thugs

Canadian Dirtlump's picture

Honestly I have alot of respect for him. He is Lucid, rational, succinct, thoughtful. IN other words, the exact opposite of the hysterical hyperbole we are used to from western politicians.

"*PUTIN SAYS 245 UKRAINIAN FIRMS PROVIDE DEFENSE GOODS TO RUSSIA"

That says a lot.  People think it is about Ukraine but Russia took in Snowden, foiled the plot in Syria, and possibly was behind the attack in Benghazi (as part of the Syrian drama).  Russia is being attacked more directly as a result.

Putin took off his translator headset early...to make sure all the subtle items were included in the discussion.

All pistons firing.  Tough.

Ancona's picture

Obama's just pissed that Putin actually has a set of balls, and doesn't need a female handler [Jarrett] to figure his shit out for him.

orangegeek's picture

It's when monkeys like Putin get the loudest that they get taken down, through whatever means.

 

The louder they get, the harder they fall.
