Putin Warns Against "Aggressive Nationalism", Says World Order Is "Very Fragile"

Just days after Vladimir Putin's inauguration ceremony marking the beginning of his second six-year term as president of Russia, Putin arrived in Red Square Wednesday morning to deliver a speech to commemorate the 73rd anniversary of the Red Army's conquest of Berlin - the day that marked the end of World War II in Europe.

And following a ceremony that included laying a wreath on the tomb of the unknown soldier, Putin stepped up to the microphone to warn about the dangers of "aggressive nationalism" and "claims to exceptionalism" that almost brought Europe under the control of Nazi Germany during the Second World War.

Putin

These issues are bubbling up again, Putin suggested, in a not-too-subtle dig at the US and President Donald Trump, who just the day before had disappointed Russia and the deal's other signatories by withdrawing from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (otherwise known as the Iran deal).

"We remember the tragedy of two world wars, the lessons of history," Putin said at a military parade on Moscow’s Red Square on Wednesday, marking the anniversary of victory over Nazi Germany in World War II.

"We understand how serious these threats are. All humankind and countries need to recognize that the world is very fragile."

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who had lobbied against the Iran agreement, is set to meet Putin later in the Kremlin after attending the parade and ceremony.

Putin on Tuesday said that Russia was ready to consider a French plan to create an additional side accord to address some of Trump's concerns about Iran's ballistic missile program and its funding of militant groups elsewhere in the region. Though Iran has rejected that idea, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has said the country will remain in the accord and try to work things out with its European partners.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Wednesday that the country remains committed to the accord.

Before the ceremony began, Putin stopped to invite a World War II veteran (presumably a retired major general) to join his entourage after the man had been brusquely shunted aside by a member of Putin's security detail.

Some 13,000 people marched through Red Square on Wednesday, joined by 150 military vehicles including the new Armata tanks. The event ended in an aerial display by 75 Russian fighter planes, including the Su-57 stealth fighter.

Trump used an obvious false flag to justify bombing Syria.  He must be a neocon warmonger and Iran is next!  WW3 is coming!!!

Or maybe not...

Syria false flag gas attack 2018:

Public story:                       

-Trump announces plan to leave Syria

-False flag gas attack: neocons and MSM demand Trump take action

-Trump blames “animal Assad” and bombs Syria. 

-Everyone with any common sense knows it was false flag to frame Assad.  No way Trump doesn’t know.  He is lying.

-Trump has sold out to the neocons & MIC and is complicit in the FF.  He’s all in on the PNAC agenda. 

-Putin maintains Assad was not responsible but does not retaliate or escalate.

If the public story were true Trump should be beating the drum for Syrian regime change which would invite more false flag attacks to provide him justification to escalate militarily.  Not happening.

 

Possible alternative explanation:

-Trump announces plan to leave Syria

-False flag gas attack: neocons and MSM demand Trump take action

-Trump knows it is fake and who really did it but he can’t say it publicly because then he’s “repeating Russian propaganda and conspiracy theories”.   More evidence he is a Putin stooge. 

-Trump pretends to blame Assad and Putin and bombs Syria to “show we will not stand for this”.

-One or more of the targets destroyed are black sites run by the true perpetrators of the false flag.

-Bad actors cannot publicly say Trump bombed their assets because then they have to acknowledge their black sites in Syria and risk their false flag being exposed.

-Bad actors say privately: “Oh shit, that backfired.  Let’s not try that again.”

-Putin and Assad know what was really targeted so they play along with Trump’s narrative blaming them.

-Trump: “Mission accomplished!” (Taunting MSM and deep state after turning their FF around on them)

Based on the reaction of Assad and Putin, the fact that no Syrians were killed in the strikes, there have been no more FF gas attacks, and the fact that Trump is still saying he wants US out of Syria and has no intention of regime change, I’d say this is more likely the true story. 

 

Any other theories?

Sorry, Vlad.  I usually agree with you, but "aggressive nationalism" is the only antidote to "aggressive internationalism (globalism)".  True "nationalism" - if successful - will close western borders to the third world... enact tariffs to protect a country's standard of living... institute standards of decency, morality and ethics according to a people's nature... and, hopefully, bring to justice those entities which have sought to destroy those principles.  I find it a bit hypocritical that you, Mr. Putin, would make such a statement due to the fact that you, yourself, have sanctioned such policies in Russia to counter your own culture's enemies.

Putin is concentrating on the Russian economy. The defense budget has been slashed to the point of being a signal to the Russian people.(US media failed to report this radical change.)

The Russians believe they have enough strength to handle an invasion from the West. The Russian defense build up alarmed the West but it was defensive.

The sanctions forced Russia into the development of critical industries. Investment in agriculture is paying off, Putin placed significant importance on food production.

However, the Russian support of Assad will continue because of the Russian naval and airbase in Syria are important for Russian security of the Black Sea. Syrian change of government could possibly cause a loss of the bases.

It's not something talked about in US MSM, but Russia is more concerned with economic issues than military issues.

Aggressive nationalism aimed at cutting down Israeli International New World Order takeover agenda. 

Both Trump and Putin are in this 'Israeli' dilemma. 

That little fucking country (MASK FOR THE SUPRA-NATION) is going to get put in order.  All it is is a symbol of the Jewish Supra-Nation that wants to rule it all. 

They will find that it is much harder to keep a country then it is to rule a country from an International non-country Supra-Nation with stolen banking money. Their New World Order is dead out of the gate. The Supra-Nation is dead out of the gate. 

Israel first. Refugees? Flood Israel with them. 5 G kill technology? Flood Israel with it. Vaccines? Flood Israel with them. Poisoned water with fluoride? Flood Israel with it. Heavy metals poured into the air? Send them over Israel first. 

ISRAEL FIRST.

we all need to remember that these 'messages' (irrelevant where they originate...they are all elitists, right?) are 'triggers' to excite and agitate the under-educated sheople of the world...so more 'freedoms' are infringed and more control 'willing' given to TPTB...

 

closing the windows and doors before a storm makes common sense, right?  when the storm blows over, you go out and pick up the trash and toss in the bin...

I think you are wrong here.

"Aggressive nationalism" does not mean only "loving your country" ,it also means " hating the other countries".

Nazi Germany had aggressive nationalism ,see where it got them.

Israhell has it too.  The current Ukraine has it too( and see where they are).

The word you are looking for is patriotism =love for your country ,which does not mean hate for the rest. It's OK to do everything for your country ,but up to the point where you do not harm the other countries. Pursuing the interests of your country does not imply the destruction of other ones, because you think your country is " superior, exceptional or chosen".

There is a fine nuance to this ; I think this is what Mr. Putin was talking about.

Alas, history shows that these occasional bouts of nationalism never seem to end well. But I'm all for tariffs. At one time taxes on goods coming from outside the country was the main source government income (External Revenue). Since the advent of the income tax in 1913, however, and especially during and after WWI, that changed to Internal Revenue sources (the income tax). Hey, if we could dump the income tax and use tariffs instead, that would solve a lot of problems. It would free up cash that is currently being paid by taxpayers to the government, helping the economy. And, it would bring back and protect jobs. But I don't hold much hope of that happening. The globalists are in control.

He was probably talking about the hilberry / macon / merkal version of in-group globalism. Since it's flipped now, and commitment of the eelshits to each other has the narrative, a minor language misinterpretation could easily mislead when Vlad most certainly respects nationalistic individuation.

Sure. And 150 years from now there'll be a whole nother set of em.

As for the article and Mr. Putin's public comments at the "celebration" of the historical event being commemorated, I can agree the world is a fragile place and all, but it's also extremely resilient, in that it has a capacity to heal after being inflicted with extreme trauma, thankfully.

It would seem to be an unwise action to place an inordinate amount of power / authority in the hands of any one human being for any extended amount of time so any system which could peacefully transition / dilute said power over the backs of many persons having proved themselves to be seasoned and well thought of / willing to be held to be accountable to not only their own constituencies, but the constituencies of others for at least their period of service, should be sought.

The USA's triune system at this time may be in need of some tweaking, but for our day and age, it appears to be the cleanest dirty shirt in the hamper.

Like everything under the sun, the world is

extremely resilient, until some force, like heat

or gravity, makes them less resilient.  Often

with no warning.

 

The USA's triune system at this time may be in need of some tweaking, but for our day and age, it appears to be the cleanest dirty shirt in the hamper.

'Tweaking',   eliminating the senate and

term limits in the House

 

cleanest dirty shirt',  bury the dead

Vietnamese, Iraqis, and Syrians in

your clean dirty shirts.

(((DAMNATION WITH FAINT PRAISE)))

If Goebbels had been a PR guy for the American PTB,

he might have said the same thing.

... 'Tweaking', eliminating the senate and term limits in the House...

I beg your apologies, but are these two different tweaks, or are your suggesting to eliminate the Senate altogether?

Term limits are likely an important tweak and I'll leave someone at a higher grade than me to determine what they should be but when the originators called for 2 terms on the Executive, that might be a good place to start.

The Senate as one half of the Legislative might also benefit with such a limit and as quickly as 435 Congress members change their diapers, a couple of terms would likely be sufficient as well, but who am I for cryin out loud? I think boxed Merlot is a suitable beverage!

As for the sobering comment of the many, many lives cut short because they happened to be born into this life in a geopolitical location that certain individuals had vested interests / power, and / or temporary jurisdiction over, I wish I had an answer for.

Sorry.

Your Creator is mine.

Yes.  Eliminate the Senate altogether and try

democracy. I know we were founded as a

slave holding republic, but isn't that the 

part of our past that has made us and

our history just a phony, land grabbing

undemocracy?

 

The slaves we bought to work our fields are

inflicting their revenge on America 160 years

later.  And two votes for each state regardless

of their populations has nothing to do with the

real democracy we are shoving down backward

nation's throats along with our weapons and a 

debt to our banks which will be impossible for

them to repay.

Er, was he not JUST holding hands with ultra zionist and Jewish Supremacist warmonger Netanyahu?  

Funny how ‘white nationalism’ is a scourge (want Sweden to stay Swedish - you’re a ‘white supremacist’ and ‘nativist’) but Jewish ethnonationalism is so above reproach they can bulldoze homes to force another people out to build summer homes for Polish Jews from Westchester?
