  1. The details are here. It’s from a recent protest in Haiti against their prime minister. I’m not that familiar with Haiti’s inner politics, but from the looks of things, the prime minister wants foreign troops, particularly American ones, to intervene and crush the protest. The protesters want Russia to veto such decision in UN.

    1. Haiti is a typical example of a weak state. The state cannot be weak, this is a cardinal sin. The prince must be good and strong, lest the power vacuum will be taken over by lesser men, bandit knights, and grifters.

  2. Either way, I’m pretty sure you’re familiar with this by now: Russia is in fact gaining a lot of popularity among various parts of third world, while the first world is…we both know how it is. This is an interesting development indeed. I mean the right-wing populists within US, UK and EU, who kinda wanted to cut Russia some slacks as I put it, are now divided into several fractions when it comes to their view of Russia:

    -You have those staunch neocon types, who by no mean, wants anything to do with Russia.

    -Then you have those who’re saying, “if Trump is still around, Putin wouldn’t even start this war to begin with”. You know such talking point already.

    -Then you have the likes of Tucker Carlson, who actually want to restore relationship with Russia. Those are pragmatists, as we all have seen how the anti-Russia sanction have hurt the West. They’re an interesting case. I’m not entirely sure whether they really support Russia or they’re just insisting on carrying out the 2016-2018 talking points of “having Russia team up with the West so we get to corner China, while making sure Russia doesn’t have too much gains. Nord Stream 2 must never be restored.”. If that’s what they have in mind, good luck on trying to make it work. That said, Putin could very well accept some of what they offer but keep out the bullshit such as Trump’s stance on Nord Strem 2, or Pompeo’s stance on Venezuela, Iran and China – it all depends on how far Putin wanna go when it comes to being anti-West.

    All in all, not sure about EU, but I’d say Tulsi Gabbard may be the best thing within US politics as of now. She’s sensible, but I don’t think any big guys, left wing or right wing alike, will want too much to do with her. Then there’s the movement started by Lyndon LaRouche, which may stand a chance of gather support, given the economic situation as of now. But realistically speaking, I don’t think they’ll make it into government. They simply won’t let those guys to be anything bigger than just a small-time political movement.

    As for Putin, it really depends on what he wants, as I said. He has options now. One thing for certain though; the current leaders within US, UK and EU are wrong about Russia being cornered, and the anti-Russia civilians are straight up comedians. It gets to the level that I just yawn when they bring up their usual bullshit. I’ve also heard talking points such as “we don’t hate Russians. Russian people are awesome. We just hate Russian government and most of all, Putin”…same with what many are saying about China and Xi before they go on that China-bashing mode. Come up with something original at least for fuck sake!

    1. Over the centuries, the Western program for Russia does not change except for nuances. The West always viewed itself superior to the Byzantine East. Thus since the Middle Ages they aggressively projected their control over the eastern realms. The papacy would for instance enact a trade embargo against the Novgorod Republic because they weren’t mentioning the pope in liturgy. Does it remind you of anything?

      I have at home a mémoire of a French diplomat at the Grand Porte in Istanbul in the eighteenth century. His hostility to Russia is very similar to the general tone of Western media today.

      The agenda changes. But aggressive Papacy, or the Continental System, of the Transatlantic order of today have one thing in common. That is in that it demands of Russia to submit to whatever their demands are. They think they are acting from a position of strength, and the only time they will cut Russia any slack is when the Russians punch back and leave them with a bloody nose.

      1. They only respect strength. Russians keep making the same mistake by trying to be accepted in the West. They did in 1815, in 1945 and again in 1991, and the West reads it as a weakness to exploit.
