While most focus on and some suffer from Palinoia and Obiden, Russia marches forth.
Yes we are 48 days away from the 08 Presidential Elections. Obiden continue to play the comic routines, committing gaffs nearly every time they open their mouth. McCain is free be himself, and the Far Left Loony Fridge suffer from Palinoia. It is quite entertaining to watch.
However, remember what I have been warning you about? Back on August 11, 2008 I posted this. Russia Georgia War Not a Surprise I said this.
Once again, I have to sit back, take a breath, and think. This is another time that I WISH I was wrong. Another time when the signs were all there, and some just either failed to see them or purposely chose not to. Some are still not seeing what is right in front of them.
The Russia / Georgia War is NOT a surprise. They want it back. They do not like America being allies with Georgia. Nor do they like the fact that they CHOSE to break away from the Mother Country.
I keep telling you that Putin, wants the old Soviet Union back. First was Azerbaijan. A former Soviet republic that borders the Caspian Sea, and lies just north of Iran. This is where we discovered another Islamofascist terrorist attack being planned to be carried out against the U.S. Embassy in the capital, Baku.
Then we have Russia invading Georgia. And seizing control of the oil pipelines there. Now we have this. From the AFP - Ukraine's pro-Western ruling coalition collapses by Anya Tsukanova Tue Sep 16, 4:15 PM ET
Ukraine's governing coalition collapsed on Tuesday in a crisis that threatens to knock the ex-Soviet country of 47 million people off its pro-Western course and back into Moscow's orbit.
Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko said his country's young democracy was resilient and would not accept any interference from Moscow in a crisis sparked by Russia's war with Georgia last month.
"I officially announce the collapse of the coalition of democratic forces," parliament speaker Arseny Yatsenyuk told lawmakers.
"I would not call this an apocalypse. It is a challenge for democracy," he said.
Less than four years after President Viktor Yushchenko and Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko united against a Moscow-backed presidential candidate in the Orange Revolution, their political marriage lay in tatters.
Tensions between the president and prime minister came to a head last month following Russia's war with Georgia, with Yushchenko's allies accusing Tymoshenko of "high treason" for not supporting Georgia enough against Russia.
Tymoshenko has rejected the charge, saying she is no Kremlin ally.
European officials have warned Ukraine could be the next target for interference by Russia because of the high proportion of Russian-speakers and tensions over Russia's Black Sea fleet, based in southern Ukraine.
You do remember that Ukraine's foreign ministry threatened to prevent the warships from returning to their base in the Ukrainian port of Sevastopol? That did not sit well with Russia.
But Yushchenko on Tuesday said his country could withstand any pressure.
"Ukraine's democracy will not give up... The nation is on the path to democracy and it won't accept any scenario that is imposed from far away," Yushchenko said in a thinly-veiled reference to Russia.
He also accused Tymoshenko of plotting with the pro-Moscow opposition against him to form a new governing coalition in negotiations that had a "cynical, behind-the-scenes and treacherous character."
Reacting to the collapse, Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, a close ally of Yushchenko in trying to integrate with the West and particularly with the NATO alliance, said he was "worried" by the events.
"There are also signs of lots of outside interference and meddling," Saakashvili said, apparently referring to Russia.
The prime minister could now start trying to build a new coalition, possibly with the pro-Russian Regions Party.
Tymoshenko said at a meeting with regional leaders: "The government is going to work for a long time and is going to work successfully despite all these storms... Because this is a storm in a teacup."
The political crisis began when Yushchenko pulled his Our Ukraine party out of the coalition on September 3 after Tymoshenko sided with the pro-Moscow opposition to pass new laws rolling back the president's powers.
Yushchenko bitterly described the vote against him as a bid by Tymoshenko to establish a "dictatorship" and complained of a parliamentary "coup."
Tymoshenko in turn accused the president of having "destroyed" the governing coalition by pulling out of the alliance with her party.
Fresh parliamentary elections would be the third in two years for Ukraine.
Tymoshenko and Yushchenko were the icons of the 2004 pro-Western Orange Revolution, but since then have been embroiled in persistent and sharp disagreements on domestic political issues.
The political crisis comes ahead of a key presidential election due in 2009 or 2010, which is expected to pit Yushchenko against both Tymoshenko and Viktor Yanukovych, who leads the Regions Party, and will be closely watched in Western capitals.
Ukraine is a key transit country for Russian gas exports to Europe.
The crisis has set back Ukraine's NATO and EU aspirations as well as raising eyebrows in Washington. US officials badly want Tymoshenko and Yushchenko to work together to bring the ex-Soviet nation out of Russia's orbit.
US Vice President Dick Cheney urged unity during a visit to Kiev earlier this month as he toured the region trying to bolster America's ex-Soviet allies following the conflict between Russia and Georgia.
That conflict and the ensuing fallout have served as a reminder that Russia finds it hard to stomach NATO or EU encroachment eastwards into what it sees as its historic sphere of influence.
People in the southeast of Ukraine are mainly Russian-speaking, while those in the northwest predominantly speak Ukrainian and are more oriented towards integration with the West.
Yushchenko last month earned Russia's wrath by imposing restrictions on the Russian navy. Under a lease arrangement, Russia's Black Sea fleet is based at Sevastopol on Ukraine's Crimean coast until 2017.
Folks, you REALLY need to listen to what I'm telling you here. Putin WANTS a NEW Cold War. He WANTS the glory days of the Soviet Union back. Then of course, we have Little Hitler, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, continuing his Nuclear quest. The IAEA showed documents and photographs on Tuesday suggesting Iran secretly tried to modify a missile cone to fit a nuclear bomb. Pakistan troops ordered to open fire on US troops, and of course, let us not forget North Korea, China, and Venezuela. Not to mention those in our own Government that want to keep us dependent on some of these foreign Governments for our energy.
Now is not the time to play games. Now is not the time to allow a puppet, that works for a VERY small, yet well funded minority of Loons in this country. Those that HATE this country to begin with. No. What we need is a Leader. A TRUE Leader. Someone who understands just how dangerous the times are, in which we live. WE need people in the White House that HAVE experience in running things. That have a history of doing what they think is right, even if that means going against their own Party. Someone who GETS THINGS DONE!
Sorry, but a FAILED Community Organizer who spend 148 days in the Senate is NOT he. A life long Politician that attempted to help us lose the War for political gain, is not he. Sorry, but the days of Pipe Dreams and Moon Beams are gone. We need those that see the World as it IS. Not how they envision it becoming with just their mere presents and personality.
