Russia’s (i.e., Putin’s) crimes don’t need any explanations or apologizes. These types of things remind me of whenever the Soviets did something how people always blamed the West. Putin’s an evil bastard. That’s all.
The chickens from the bent one and Frau Albright's splendid little war have come home to roost. Anyone who had a brain saw this coming nine years ago.
Did anyone think Serbian analysts and politicians would say otherwise?
There is a difference between what the US did in Kosovo and what Putin is doing in Georgia.
Putin, at least, has the excuse that he is invading a foreign country and killing innocent civilians for selfish reasons—because he wants to expand Russia’s control over its former empire and control the oil, which in turn gives him control over Europe, which he can now threaten to let freeze in the dark.
Clinton had no such excuse. He attacked our allies, killed our friends, and handed Kosovo over to our enemies, drug smuggling Muslim terrorists. And, for whatever reason, Bush has signed on to it.
Both these invasions were criminal enterprises, but at least Putin has the excuse that he leads the Russian Mafia and expects to make a big profit on the deal.
What’s Bush’s excuse? Backing the theft of Kosovo from Serbia not only was evil, it was stupid, and flatly against our national security interests.
This is my take on it as well.
If the West is going to surround Russia with Muslim terrorist nations, the Russians are going to have to fix things themselves.
So does he also see Serbia as a US sphere of interest? That would be the natural assumption if the analogous nature of the two are correct as per this article.
