US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov just gave as joint press conference after both men met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow. Naturally, the two spoke of a “productive meeting” on a broad range of issues from Syria to Ukraine, and the degraded relations between the two great superpowers. Here is my impression on their public remarks.
Both Tillerson and Lavrov exhibited expected professionalism in relaying the minutes and tone of these important meetings. That being said, anyone who has followed international policy these last few years can only come away feeling absolute hopelessness. Much was said about effective and pragmatic détente and actions by both men. It’s abundantly clear however, that the needful world that watches can have little hope things will improve anytime in foreseeable future. This low point in American-Russian relations is a punctuation on the epoch of disastrous foreign policies by all nations in the past 70 years. Since the end of World War II, a few nations and their people’s have prospered, while a score of others have been embroiled in war, crisis, famine, poverty, or social upheaval of unprecedented negative effect.
Tillerson and Lavrov touched on very few common goals as if bilateral cooperation on those were some glimmer of faint hope. At least this was my impression based on their body language and facial expressions, which coincide with the utter uselessness of quasi-accords like the “Minsk Agreement” hammered out for Ukraine. I’ll not dig deeper into the situation in Kiev or Donetsk, but my own sources there send candid images and news of almost continual killing AND the utter malfeasance of organizations like the OSCE. As I’ve personally uncovered before, foreign agents and players in the horrific Ukraine drama show us the dark underbelly of a regime change mechanism set in place for one purpose – the further containment of Russia along with the prospect of color revolution and regime change there. I am not nearly alone in this assessment.
For Mr. Tillerson’s part, he has the look of a man who had rather be on a more positive mission. But he his about-face rhetoric and the monolog of “trust us” assurances bespeaks of former Secretary of State Colin Powell and the WOMD fiasco before invading Iraq. Read this White House Background Press Briefing on Syria, from day before yesterday and discover Obama administration assurances on policy, with no evidence whatsoever attached. This circus act of smoke and mirrors is a Donald Trump administration redux of Obama’s dog and pony show. The American people are needful of assured evidence of policies more than at any time in our history, and mediocrity insults our collective intelligence. Let me quote for you on the actual meat of Trump White House intelligence before the launch of 59 cruise missiles into sovereign Syria. This is a senior White House spokesperson:
“So let me start with the narrative of what we think happened in the attack. And let me tell you, to start with — what we’ve done here is we’ve declassified a lot of intelligence with great thanks to our colleagues in the intelligence community so that we can be very forthcoming with you about the amount that we know about this attack and why we believe the Russian and Syrian narratives are false. And we think it’s really important for you to understand the depth of information that we have that supports this narrative.”
The Trump White house goes on to cite “Open Source” intelligence, videos, social media, and a ridiculous list of other “proof” that has led President Trump to “think” Assad attacked his own people! The idiotic nature of this statement bashes my belief system to pieces. Not even the most seasoned media analyst and policy expert could ever foresee such a pitiful state of diligence toward the American people. The Trump argument consists of this. Planes were overhead – munitions were dropped – people were gassed – it was Assad. That’s it. The office of the most powerful leader on the planet just says “trust us” at a time when trust is all used up. But let me move on.
The people of the world are all out of confidence and trust in leaders. From a distance or close up, this whole Cold War II game feels like a setup. In fact, looking back on the Soviet Union and the first Cold War, anybody with half a mind is thinking humanity has been the “mark” of a larger conspiracy. Seven decades of war, crisis, talk and more talk, and we are nowhere! Face it people, this is not even possible if we put Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck in charge. The time has come for real disclosure unless all those we’ve had confidence in are sold out to this New Democratic Order. Take Rex Tillerson and Donald Trump for an example.
Before German Chancellor Angela Merkel traveled to Washington, the American leadership appeared to be headed for a new nationalistic (even isolationist) doctrine. “America first” was a rallying cry that began to make sense for millions of workers in the US displaced by the globalist’s machinations. China and others reaped huge benefits at the expense of everyday Americans, just as the world paid for American prosperity for generations. America and Russia seemed a bit closer to reconciliation and forward progress before March 17th when Merkel arrived, then by March 30th Tillerson and Trump began to toe a familiar line. “Russia must give back Crimea”, and the US reversal of policy on Assad signaled something went very wrong. And now a new US Secretary of State speaks to us out of the side of his mouth. As for Lavrov, I’ve studied this brilliant man some years now – he looks more tired and confounded than ever before today.
In summary, I’m doing a series of analysis on what can be called a worldwide “mafia”, or as UK politician Nigel Farange called the EU contingent, “gangsters”. This new breed of “mafiosos” have had decades to dig down deep into our society, and to transform legitimate business and politics into a racket. As conspiratorial as this sounds, everyone knows by now that the conspiracy is the reality. The “back room deals” Vladimir Putin spoke of some years back, must assuredly involve life and death ultimatums. As for the monetary incentives from George Soros, Wall Street, and the technocrats, we’re fully aware of those as well. The problem now is, our angel of deliverance from Armageddon looks less like a savior and a lot more like a sinner today.
Around the world citizens of every nation, you can name suffer because of inefficiencies, corrupt officials, the elite manipulation of social and governmental systems. Eastern and southern Europe are most notably hit since the dream of EU assension first offered them a glimmer of hope. In Romania, where my wife is from, the US and EU promise of glorious democracy has served no purpose whatsoever. The image above from an Independent report is telling mostly because it is the children who suffer most. Seventy years, tens of millions dead or misplaced, hundreds of trillions in potential and resources squandered, and these paid politicians cannot simply squeeze out one positive for humankind? Right now disappointment is an unbelievable understatement.
The new American president is midway through the biggest policy “flip flop” in history and we’re left gobsmacked with uncertainty. What a disgrace and an utter waste of time. I’m reading the disgust on Sergey Lavrov’s face – we are in huge trouble.
