I wonder if any of the 66 million American sheeple that voted for The One realize how much danger they just put everybody in the world in; strike that; I know they do not or they would not have voted for this seeming milk toast who I STILL believe has a hidden agenda.
MOSCOW (AP) – A Russian warship will sail through the Panama Canal this week for the first time since World War II, the navy announced Wednesday, pushing ahead with a symbolic projection of Moscow’s power in a traditional U.S. zone of influence.
The destroyer Admiral Chabanenko will arrive Friday at a former U.S. naval base in Panama’s Pacific port of Balboa for a six-day visit after carrying out joint maneuvers with the Venezuelan navy in the Caribbean Sea, navy spokesman Capt. Igor Dygalo said in a telephone interview.
Monday’s joint maneuvers with Venezuela, which brought the Admiral Chabanenko and the nuclear-powered missile cruiser Peter the Great across the Atlantic along with two support ships, were widely seen as a show of Kremlin anger over the U.S. use of warships to deliver aid to Georgia after its August war with Russia.
The Russian squadron’s voyage to Venezuela was Russia’s first such deployment to the Western Hemisphere since the Cold War era, aimed to showcase the Kremlin’s global reach and reassert its claim to great-power status. Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is a staunch U.S. foe.
The voyage coincided with a trip to Latin America late last month by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, who visited four nations in what he acknowledged was an effort to raise Moscow’s profile in a region he said it has long neglected.
And then there is this:
Israel is drawing up plans to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities and is prepared to launch a strike without backing from the US, it has been reported.
Officials in the Israeli Defence Ministry told the Jerusalem Post that while they prefer to act in consultation with the US, they were preparing plans that would allow them to act in isolation.
We have been watching events in the world escalate the closer The One got to being elected, (remember Georgia?), and now we all are cursed with the opportunity to be a captive audience. The most unfortunate part of all this is that the people that drank the koolaid will not wake up long enough to realize their complicity in everything that is about to happen, and the danger that they have wrought upon innocent lives all over the world. I am feeling a “Universe” bitchslap coming.
