Bear on the prowl and the clipped eagle
Fred Weir, who has covered Russia from Moscow since 1998 for the Christian Science Monitor, says US support for the unelected Maidan Alliance’s February revolution in Ukraine has backfired, giving Putin an opportunity to reestablish control of the country. Weir writes: “…the West underestimated the depth of alienation in the East once Ukraine’s unelected government started making controversial decisions…Moscow also says that the US in particular erred by giving its backing to Kiev’s efforts to subdue resistance in eastern Ukraine with military force – even though Western leaders had strongly warned [the former] regime not to use police force against the Maidan protesters earlier in the crisis.”
In Arab Spring, the US president provided material support–US taxpayer funds and full weight of US political capital–for the Muslim Brotherhood- and al Qaeda-backed revolutions throughout Northern Africa and the Middle East. This allowed non elected Islamists to quickly organize and hold “kangaroo” communist-style elections. Today, two of his gemstones–Libya and Egypt–are in total economic and financial disarray because of this president’s support for terrorist Islamic Sharia governments. The dubious foreign policy antics to assist the reformation of the Islamic Caliphate (Muslim Brotherhood’s stated goal) is one thing, but the entire relationship with Putin is a different story.
Now, the US president will not assist the unelected government he helped install, and the Russian Bear is circling its prey. The once strong foreign policy of America that would have prevented the mere thought of a Russian invasion of Ukraine appears weak. This could, however, just be the face of two communists. Could the Islamist Marxist and the ex-KGB communist be secretly working together? Flashback to March 2012, the US president whispered to the Russian president: “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.” To which the Russian replied: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.” Jeremiah 17:9 says, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
