They vary with regards to nuclear proliferation and opinion of the day during the time they were published years ago.
Following this publication I received an email from a reader asking me the following question: I am confused by Putins actions — does Putin support the Zionist entity, on the quiet like.
I would appreciate your feedback on this matter. Also — I have heard, but not been able to confirm, that the Russian Jewish immigrants to Occupied Palestines are the most ardent tormenters of the Palestinians — it takes quite some doing to get ahead of the likes of Netanyahu.
I often see that question in emails and in comments, so I wanted to address this issue today. First, we need to look at some critical assumption implied by this question.
Let me begin by saying that I categorically disagree with both of these assumptions, especially the 2nd one.
Russia can stop the Israeli attacks on Syria How? I think that the list of options is fairly obvious here. So talking to them is just a waste of oxygen.
What about threatening them? Actually, I think that this could work, but at what risk and price? In fact, their record is pretty good. Now if you look at where the Russian air defenses are, you will see that they are all concentrated around Khmeimim and Tartus.
Yes, an S has a very long range, but that range is dependent on many things including the size of the target, its radar-cross section, its electronic warfare capabilities, the presence of specialized EW aircraft, altitude, etc.
The Israelis are skilled pilots who are very risk averse so they are very careful about what they do. Finally, the Israelis are very much aware of where the Russians are themselves and where there missiles are.
I think that it would be pretty safe to say that the Israelis make sure to keep a minimal safe distance between themselves and the Russians, if only to avoid any misunderstanding. In this article Darius Shahtahmasebi writes: In practical terms this means this: There are also simply factual issues to consider: In fact, both Israel and CENTCOM simply have such a numbers advantage over the relatively small Russian contingent that they both could over-run the Russian defenses, even if they would take losses in the process.
So yes, the Russian probably could stop one or a few Israeli attacks, but if the Israelis decided to engage in a sustained air campaign against targets in Syria there is nothing the Russians could do short of going to war with Israel.
So here again a very basic strategic principle fully applies: Put simply this means: And this begs a critical look at the second assumption: Russia has some moral duty to stop the Israeli attacks on Syria This is the one which most baffles me. For starters, when is the last time somebody came to the help of Russia?
How many countries in the Middle-East have recognized South Ossetia or Abkhazia and compare that with the Kosovo case! Can somebody please explain to me why Russia has some moral obligation towards Syria or Iran or Hezbollah when not a single Muslim or Arab country has done anything to help the Syrian government fight against the Takfiris?
Where is the Arab League!? Where is the Organization of Islamic Cooperation?! Where do the Arab and Muslims of the Middle-East get this sense of entitlement which tells them that a faraway country which struggles with plenty of political, economic and military problems of its own has to do more than the immediate neighbors of Syria do?!
Putin is the President of Russia and he is first and foremost accountable to the Russian people to whom he has to explain every Russian casualty and even every risk he takes. It seems to me that he is absolutely right when he acts first and foremost in defense of the people who elected him and not anybody else.
By the way — Putin was very clear about why he was ordering a very limited Russian military intervention in Syria: At no time and in no way did any Russian official refer to any kind of obligation of Russia towards Syria or any other country in the region.
True, Russia did stand by President Assad, but that was not because of any obligation towards him or his country, but because the Russians always insisted that he was the legitimate President of Syria and that only the Syrian people had the right to replace or keep him.
And, of course, it is in the Russian national interest to show that, unlike the USA, Russia stands by her allies. But none of that means that Russia is now responsible for the protection of the sovereignty of the Syrian airspace or territory. Hassan Nasrallah is absolutely spot on when the calls all these countries traitors and collaborators of the AngloZionist Empire.
There is something deeply immoral and hypocritical in this constant whining that Russia should do more when in reality Russia and Iran are the only two countries doing something meaningful and Hezbollah, of course!I. Some of the best pushback I got on my election post yesterday was from people who thought Trump was a safer choice than Clinton because of the former’s isolationism and the latter’s interventionism.
Since I glossed over that point yesterday, I want to explain why I don’t agree. Trump has earned a reputation as an isolationist by criticizing the Iraq War. Anti-nuclear activists do not want the public to know the truth. Fukushima showed that a nuclear plant can take the maximum punch of nature’s brutality.
Yet . That’s a good idea about forbidding eminent domain. One should probably should put something into the Constitution requiring every State to levy taxes uniformly, or they’ll use . The main reason nuclear weapons should be banned is the simple fact that they kill or severely injure. The most remembered use of a nuclear weapon was during World War 2, when we, the U.S., used the bomb on Nagasaki and Hiroshima killing millions and destroying everything in those cities/5(1).
It seems that people are having a hard time understanding how the deception works when it comes to jews and their agents. Especially when people have been getting their information from these jews and jewish agents for such a long time, they come to a website like mine with a warped mentality, not unlike that of a child who is unable to discern fact from fiction.
