Russia Asks If America Is Still Fit To "Participate In Solving International Problems"

Tyler Durden's picture

Yesterday it was China slamming America's superpower status (and thus dollar reserve currency status) when in Sina News it stated the following:

Their various reconnaissance aircraft have been wandering around foreign airspace for decades and watching the military secrets of other countries like a disgusting thief spying over his neighbor’s fence. However, when the neighbor comes back with a big stick, the thief will turn tail and run away, blaming the neighbor.


When you show people weakness, they will bully you. When you show people strength, they will respect you.


We [the newspaper] believe the Chinese Air Force and Naval aviation should maintain a high level of vigilence and morale in southeast coastal region to prevent the further US action.


America has lost face and does not want to show the world they are sick. They have been lording over other countries for so long, and they will never let it go after they eat this loss.

Now it is Russia's turn, whose Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement on Friday, following the UN's delay in adopting a statement calling for a ceasefire in Ukraine after the US once again opposed Russia, which claimed among other things that "if the US opposes an absolutely non-confrontational, reconciliatory text, there can be no doubts that Washington intends to have the armed confrontation in Ukraine continued. It could be seen only as an attempt to ‘undermine’ the humanitarian mission." A mission which Russia greenlighted despite stern US opposition, and also concluded without incident as we reported yesterday, when the convoy returned to Russia after a brief stay in east Ukraine.  
Moscow believes that such policy is hypocritical, the ministry added. Of course, if indeed the Ukraine economic crisis is the direct result of US and CIA meddling as the Victoria Nuland intercepted recording validates, then Russia has every right to such an opinion.

The punchline:

"Cynical disregard for the fate of civilians and 'couldn't care less' attitude toward the international humanitarian law when it comes to geopolitical interests, becomes the core of the policy of the United States and its European satellites regarding Ukrainian," the statement read.

"More and more questions are being raised about the ability of the current US administration to participate in the development of realistic and pragmatic approaches to international problems, to adequately assess the situation in the various regions of the world," the Russia Foreign Ministry noted.

One wonders if based on his recent track record in the international arena, the president of the US wouldn't agree.

“Fit To "Participate In Solving International Problems" “ ?

If the solution is killing millions and plundering resources for the benefit of  a small group of international financial elite, well yes, of course.

I wonder how much money the US taxpayers are doling out for each time Barry has a round of golf. Look at the entourage of agents and bodyguards that has to protect Obama each and every week he has to set foot on a golf course.

Russia is only being polite and rhetorical.  Of course the current admistration in incapable of particpating in problem solving. They are too busy purusing their own agenda.

America is #1 whore to International Zionism, so I suppose the answer depends on your idea of the future "world order". If your goal is anything but the Talmudic World Order, then the answer is NO, America cannot offer/solve shit.

BTW Fuck Chuck Hagel, what an ass kiss punk.

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen,

As of August 12, 2014:

Obama has taken 20 "vacations" lasting 129 days on “vacation.”

The president has made 33 visits to the official Camp David.

Obama’s morning round of golf on Tuesday brought his total since January 2009 to 186, with 22 of them on Martha’s Vineyard.

At this point in George W. Bush’s:

He had taken 58 trips to his Prairie Chapel ranch near Crawford, Texas, for all or part of 381 days.

Bush spent 26 days at his family’s oceanside compound in Kennebunkport, Maine, over the course of seven trips there.

And the former Texas governor had been to Camp David 108 times for a total of all or part of 341 days.

Bush played 24 rounds of golf as president. He later explained his decision to stop in the fall of 2003 by saying he felt it was not appropriate to be seen golfing while American troops fought in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Butch was right: don't play golf while playing in the Gulf. Persian, that is.

He actually looks like he knows how to swing the club and doesn't look feminine doing it. Bravo GW!

This "vacation" stuff is going to be a meme from now on. It really took off with W, and I don't think (I hope! ) anyone will ever touch the record setting vacation days he took. It just hits a Jungian nerve with people. HOW CAN THAT BASTARD GO ON VACATION NOW! etc...

The non-verbal W vs the ultra-verbal teleprompter is a much more interesting meme because it goes from one end of the spectrum to the other, but both sides feel they gain traction with it.

Escrava Isaura's picture

It sure would be an interesting meme.

Another interesting meme would be the Constitution; after all, Obama is a Constitutional Law Professor, right? And doing exactly what our “Founding Lawyers” did, protecting the interest of the opulent.

Idiot.  Bush used Crawford as a 2nd White House.

- - - - 

When he was president, Bush used the ranch for vacations, meetings, and entertaining foreign dignitaries. In the less formal setting, dress code for meetings called for an open collar and no tie. Guests were typically treated to meals of Southwestern cuisine. When not holding meetings or briefings, Bush spent his time mountain biking, jogging, fishing, bird hunting, and clearing brush.

Bush made clear his preference for spending some time away from his official residence at the White House in Washington, DC. In 2001, he said, "I think it is so important for a president to spend some time away from Washington, in the heartland of America."[10]

Visits from foreign dignitaries[edit]

Visitors to the ranch have included:

Now, imagine if Obama had moved the White House to Chicago?

Setting up all the infrastructures and facilities necessary to make it safe and operational to run a nation.

Talking about improper and fraudulent behavior.

Why would any of you classy guys here "down vote" facts?

Great point Escrava Isaura...not that I like either...or not like they are so different....

Obama is a stooge and does not represent anything which defines the original US of A.

America fit to solve international problems?

Not that anyone is "fit" to do such a thing (just leave people the fuck alone!), but... NO.
