Here are the top 10 rolling on the floor, jaw on the floor howlers from Vladimir Putin’s July 22 address to the Russian security council FOLLOWED BY OUR COMMENTS.
“Any nation that is part of an alliance gives up part of its sovereignty.” EASY FOR HIM TO SAY SINCE NOBODY WANTS AN ALLIANCE WITH RUSSIA.
“At the same time, they present Russia with an ultimatum: either you let us destroy the part of the population that is ethnically, culturally and historically close to Russia, or we introduce sanctions against you.” HE’S SAYING THAT ANY TIME RUSSIA CAN’T PARTITION RUSSIANS FROM ANY COUNTRY, IT’S GENOCIDE; YET NO ETHNIC GROUP IN RUSSIA IS ENTITLED TO PARTITION.
“This is exactly why Russia supported the [UN] Security Council Resolution proposed by Australia.” RUSSIA OPPOSED THE RESOLUTION, DEMANDING IT MAKE NO REFERENCE TO ANY BLAME OF RUSSIA.
“However, attempts are clearly being made to destabilize the social and economic situation, to weaken Russia in one way or another.” HE’S SAYING THAT THE MH17 ATTACK WAS AN ATTACK BY THE WEST ON RUSSIA.
“We are particularly relying on civil society for effective help in improving the system of state governance with regard to ethnic policy and educating young people about the spirit of patriotism and responsibility for the fate of their Fatherland, which is particularly important.” HE THINKS THE ROLE OF CIVIL SOCIETY IS TO BE AN INSTRUMENT OF STATE PROPAGANDA.
“Our second important challenge is protecting constitutional order.” HE OBLITERATED CONSTITUTIONAL ORDER BY SEIZING THE PRESIDENCY FOR LIFE.
“We should finally call on the Kiev authorities to comply with elementary norms of human decency.” HE’S SAYING THE GOVERNMENT OF UKRAINE IS COMPRISED OF BARBARIANS.
“True, they held elections after the takeover, however, for some strange reason, power ended up again in the hands of those who either funded or carried out this takeover.” HE’S SAYING THE ELECTED GOVERNMENT OF UKRAINE IS ILLEGITIMATE BUT HIS OWN ELECTIONS ARE FLAWLESS.
“As I have said, we will do everything in our power, but this is absolutely insufficient.” HE’S ADMITTING RUSSIA IS IMPOTENT.
“We, on our part, strictly comply with the norms of international law and with our commitments to our partners.” THEN LIGHTENING STRUCK HIM DOWN!
