As reported in the U.K. Daily Mail’s Mail Online story this meeting between Kerry and Putin was intended to help improve relations and pave the way for Obama to hold talks with Putin in September, when Russia hosts a summit of the Group of 20 nations. Obama and Putin are also to meet at a Group of Eight summit in Britain in June.
And… In case you have missed the Wall Street Journal article it has been revealed that Russia plans to sell Syria advanced weapons systems that could significantly effect the unstable military balance in the region.
So think about this… Syria’s Assad gang is basically counting down the days until he is run out of town on a rail and forced to stand trial in some international court for crimes against humanity. You know, genocide and lovely things like that. And Russia’s Mr. Putin is supplying him the weapons to carry out his dastardly deeds.
Last time I checked if you knowingly provide the means to criminal you are just as guilty.
This means that someone at the New York Times who has to be aware (it is in a major U.K. newspaper) of this significant insult to Mr. Kerry, President Obama, and the American people has decided to hide the story.
Scary times indeed.
A women I know was confused when her boyfriend at the time gave here a cheap “Travel to Michigan” T-Shirt as a birthday present. She asked me what I thought and I told her it was not a gift it was a message. They broke up shortly after that.
This Putin slight is a message Mr. Kerry (and Mr. Obama). Choose to ignore it and you will be the fools. The problem is that millions more innocent people will pay for your mistakes.
