The USSR is dead – The Party is Over

download (12)

The Soviet Union is not Russia. They are two completely different entities. This has been a difficult adjustment for the American Military Establishment. They want….absolutely must have…Russia as the same threat as was the USSR. It is not so.

Russia does not have the same territorial or political ambitions as those of the NOW DEFUNCT USSR.

If we act foolishly, without wisdom, as the Hillary Clinton Wing of the GOP/DNC wishes, we may create that existential threat. Our stupidity may lead to our demise.

Again, I’ll ask.

What war with Russia?

Why would we go to war with Russia?

Because we want them to be the USSR?

Because they want the same type regional sphere of influence that we have in the Western Hemisphere?

What would the intent of a war with Russia be? What would be their goals? What are our goals?

Exactly why would we go to war with Russia?

Because they took BACK the Crimea?

Because they use influence in Eastern Europe and the Balkans?

Would you war with Russia if they invaded Estonia or Latvia?

Think of the sheer lunacy of World War II wherein Britain and France declared war with Germany over the German invasion of Poland. End result of that stupidity was that the USSR occupied and took control, not only of Poland, but the whole of Eastern Europe.

So…exactly why are we going to go to war with Russia?

Should we prepare for war with Mongolia, Bhutan and Uruquay as well?

Russia is an ahistorical enemy of the US. We only came into conflict with them because of communism. Communism no longer exists in Russia. It’s a autarcho-fascism that lives there now. And we have no enemy therein. The people of Russia can decide for themselves what they wish to allow or tolerate in their own government. It is not for us to say.

There is not one single solitary reason for the United States to go to war with Russia.

AND….we should build down NATO and let the Europeans police their affairs now. They’re grown people who want to go their own way. We have no interests there. Europe is the past. Asia is the future.

When Russia builds a navy capable of spanning the oceans and carrying an invasion force large enough to invade and occupy the United States of America, I’ll be right there with you.

I see no reason to fight Europe’s wars with Russia when Europe is financing the Russian military might via petro/natgas purchases throughout the years and decades. This is foolish. It’s downright stupid.

Politically Correct “United Statesians” Annoyance

american-individualism-1-728

The United States of America is known around the world as AMERICA.

There is a country called America and you, dear Citizen of the United States, live in it.

That you, dear reader, personally, choose to refer to it in your preferred PC choice of wording does not negate the fact that America is a known entity.

Semantics and pedantry.

The correct term for a Citizen of America would be and is U.S. Citizen. The country is known colloquially as AMERICA.

Yes, it has much to do with one’s political bent. Only politically correct Americans who tow the Liberal Party line want to say that AMERICA is the incorrect manner to which one should refer to this country.

The citizens of the United Soviet Socialist Republic did not refer to themselves as United Soviets. The People of the Democratic Republic of China do not refer to themselves as Democratic Republicans. The people of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan do not refer to themselves as Islamic Republicans. Each respectively referred to themselves as Russians, Chinese and Afghans.

Mexico is the Republic of Mexico. People from Mexico are called Mexican. Canada is the, as far as I can tell, simply called Canada. Folks from Canada are called Canadians. It’s not difficult to follow this. If Canadians and Mexicans wish to call themselves America because they hail from the Americas, good for them. I have no problem with this. It would confuse the hell out of everyone and they’d spend half of their time explaining that they are Mexicans from the Americas and, therefore, Mexicans who are Americans or Americans who are Mexicans. However, that would be their prerogative and I’d not be concerned about it.

I refer to myself as an American. When folks ask me from whence I hail, I answer; “America.” Unless I want to be difficult and then I’ll say; “Thailand.” Because I live in Thailand now.

Every time that I have tried the Liberal Politically Correct usage of “United States” as an answer, I have received a blank look upon which I always have to expound by saying; “America.” At the stating of the word “America” in answer to my national origin, I am always rewarded with some semblance of  “Oh, OK. You’re American.”

To repeat, one can always tell a Liberal American traveling the world by how he/she refers to themselves. If an American uses the term “United States” in answer to “Where are you from?;” there is a 99% chance that that person voted for Clinton, Gore or Obama in the last few Presidential elections.

Having traveled all over the world, I can say this with certainty. Only a politically correct Liberal refuses to call themselves an American. Then there are the cowards who will tell folks that they are from Canada.

George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and James Madison all referred to themselves as Americans. I shall defer to their provenance in this matter over the latter day “shame interpretation” of our national identity by any Politically Correct Liberal “United Statesian.”

No, this is not an American. No self respecting native of the pre-American societies would refer to themselves as American. They called themselves “the humans,” “free people,” Iriqious, Shawnee, Mandans, Apache, Navaho, Algonquin, Seminole and a thousand other names. Not one of these folks were American and not one of them is American. Those descendants of these people who now call themselves American are not the same as the free peoples who inhabited these lands prior to European Colonization. A descendant of the pre-Euro-Colonization Natives of the Americas who has taken up the mantle of Citizen of the United States would be seen as traitors by the man pictured above.
