Putin Accused Obama of Blackmailing World Leaders (Video)
Very insightful speech by Putin, who subtly doubts that America won the cold war (ridiculous) yet nails Obama on funding and building up terrorism around the globe, which is spot on.
He also says something I found extremely interesting:
"Recently we have increasing evidence that outright blackmail has been used with regard to a number of leaders".
This is intriguing in that it has been suspected by some (including me) that the Obama White House is blackmailing a number of Congressmen, Senators, Journalists and possibly Supreme Court Justices to hush them up about a number of things, including perhaps his real identity. In light of this allegation from Putin, who I trust about as far as I can throw incidentally, I have to wonder about German Chancellor Merkels' accusation of the NSA spying on her mobile phone. Not to mention another 34 world leaders who were spied on according to documents released from Edward Snowden last year. We also know that Congress has been spied upon by the CIA, as Senator Dianne Feinstein made clear when she lashed back in March of this year.
Has information gathered from NSA and CIA spy-a-thons uncovered enough "dirt" for blackmail as Putin espouses? Nothing would surprise me about the thugs in the highest levels of this corrupt government. Nothing. What about you?
Putin lashed out against America for its support of Islamic terrorists, and also for its role in providing weapons to the Afghans to combat Russia, which led to the creation of the Taliban and Al-Qaeda. As one report says:
Vladimir Putin lashed out at the United States and the West for destabilizing the world order of checks and balances for its own gains. He also accused the West of inflaming the situation in Ukraine and said Russia is not interested in building an empire.RT
The Russian President delivered a fierce broadside aimed at the United States in a speech for the Valdai Club in Sochi, which is an informal group of scholars. He hit out at Washington for behaving without regard to the rest of the world’s interests
“The system of international relations needed some changes, but the USA, who believe they were the winners of the Cold War, have not seen the need for this.” He added that the US has been trying to create the world “for their own gains.” The Russian President added that because of this, regional and global security had been weakened.
During his speech, Putin used the Russian version of the Latin phrase, “Quod licet Iovi, non licet bovi” (what is allowed for god, is not allowed for cattle,) alluding to the double standards used by Washington.
Putin also touched on the issue of the growth of Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, and also accused the West of, “turning a blind eye,” to the encroachment of international terrorism into Russia and Central Asia. Putin believes the US has played a considerable role in sponsoring the growth of Islamic extremism, using the example of Washington’s funding of the Mujahidin in the Afghan-Soviet war in the 1980’s, which eventually gave birth to the Taliban and Al-Qaeda.
“It never ceases to amaze me how our partners have been guilty of making the same mistakes time and again. They have in the past sponsored Islamic extremists who were battling against the Soviet Union, which took place in Afghanistan. It was because of this the Taliban and Al-Qaeda was created,” the president added.
Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) is the latest terrorist organization, which is destabilizing the world and Putin was scathing of countries that have been helping to fund the Islamist militants by buying cut price oil they are selling.
“Terrorists have been selling oil at really low prices and those countries who have been buying it and then selling it on, are financing terrorism, which will eventually come back to bite them,” the Russian President said.
