Well, in this discussion we're only focused on symptomatic responses to aggressive US strategic initiatives that jump-started this situation a decade
ago. Pres. Bush allowed the deployment of various (i.e. anti-ballistic and cruise) missile systems near the Russian border, which in essence tips the
scale of power toward the US to inflict heavy damage on Russia's critical infrastructure, thus allowing western allies the advantage of a "nuclear
first strike". Russia's natural (and sovereign) response has been to reset the balance of power through an expansion of its defensible territory and
resources in Crimea, Ukraine and Syria. Putin's aggressive strategic policies are now aimed at pushing back against allied initiatives in the Middle
East. Syria is a significant crude oil producing country in the Eastern Mediterranean region. And Syria has at least 2.5 billion barrels of oil in its
fields, making it the next largest Middle Eastern oil producer after Iraq.
If Mr. Putin is trying to tell Americans that we've been lied to, that's not propaganda at all. In desperation, he's attempting to avoid war by using
western media as his mouthpiece to get the message out there. I have to tell you that we are concerned and somewhat dismayed by the common American
response to this escalating situation, which only an informed public in a free society can quash.
Use your freedom to understand what you have to lose if you continue to allow the NSA and Pentagon to run the White House and all of the presidents'
strategic policy decisions. Think on who and what you are really voting for when you go the polls in November.
At least Pres. Putin recognizes the truth and acts on his own volition to defend Russia's sovereign rights. It is in the order of political heresy,
that the so-called free-west is doing just the opposite.
