RFERL: U.S.-Russian Differences Brought Into Sharp Relief In Munich


… U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden told the international gathering of top diplomats and defense officials that Washingon and Moscow “have serious differences on issues like Syria, missile defense, NATO enlargement, democracy, human rights.” …

Well, well, why wouldn’t Moscow be all for ‘NATO enlargement’ and for Russia being encircled by NATO’s missiles? Duh!

… “The United States will not recognize Abkhazia and South Ossetia as independent states,” Biden said. “We will not recognize any nation having a sphere of influence. It will remain America’s view that sovereign states have the right to make their own decisions and choose their own alliances.” …

VP Biden wants it both ways, i.e. His USA ‘having spheres of influence’ but Russia not. So very stupid of Biden. But, then, Biden is known for not being all that intelligent.

… He said Washington would continue to support the Syrian opposition and that the United States currently provided it more than $50 million in nonlethal assistance. He predicted that the “days ahead will be difficult” for Syria but that the “Syrian opposition continues to grow stronger.”

Lavrov said Moscow has many questions about the Western approach to the Middle East, including the Arab Spring and Syria. …

No wonder the DOW is humming along these days, because the military-industrial complex is doing its best to prop up the humming process. Regardless, Lavrov figured it out long ago. All sane individuals should have ‘many questions about the Western approach to Arab Spring’, Summer, Fall and Winter.

The other reason the Dow is rising is because of inflation. The Federal Reserve is pumping money into the US economy.

What infernal arrogance!
The US government presumes to instruct Britain to know its place as an EU province.
In fact, the CIA funded theEuropean Movement to subvert our constitution to get us in to it in the Seventies..
The USA sponsored the original Coal & Steel Community as a means of rendering German rearmament acceptable. This may prove to be a slower acting poison but just as deadly as their sponsorship of of the Taliban against the Russians.

We may well need a strong Russia soon as a counterweight to an over mighty German Europe.
