Since you are showing Pravda stuff did you see this one?


Bye Bye Miss American Pie: Pravda Chides Obama's Soviet Mistake

Pravda, Russia’s leading news publication, pointedly asserts that while Communism has failed miserably in their country, the recent U.S. presidential election demonstrates that it has scored a victory in America. A November editorial titled “Obama’s Soviet Mistake” observes that while Vladimir Putin’s re-election signified popular determination to keep the New World Order agenda out of Russia, President Obama’s did the opposite.

The commentary presents a very dim view of “the illiterate society” that voted to award Obama a second term, influenced by continuing “lies of less taxes while he raises them”, and “speeches of peace and love in the world as he promotes wars as he did in Egypt, Libya and Syria.” It goes on to say that Obama “plans his next war is with Iran as he fires or demotes his generals who get in the way.”

don't know about planning the war with iran.  it would be foolish to degrade your military and then go to war with iran...unless you wanted to lose?  but he has certainly re-ordered the military to more and more reflect his view of things.  it's dangerous and pretty scary for those of us with family still in.

I'm not agreeing with or disagreeing with that part it is just an ex cert from the Pravda editorial.
