The Cuban Missile Crisis And The Monroe Doctrine Today (February 28, 2022)

. . .

K          “America failed.”

J          “Russia failed.”

. . .

K          “The American Foreign Policy Effete pushed with both hands to goad, badger, harass, disrespect and humiliate Russia and circumvent and undercut any reasonable and peaceful resolution.  They have blood on those hands.  They intentionally provoked Russia and cynically sacrificed Ukraine.” 

J          “Russia invaded.  Putin is a thug, a bully, a criminal and a psychopath.  Russia and Putin are responsible.”

. . .

K          “Let the record reflect that the U.S. decided to deploy nuclear weapons first.  The SWIFT system should be isolated from politics and serve as the neutral financial infrastructure for the world.  The U.S. weaponized SWIFT and cut off Russia’s ‘financial e-mail’ from the world.  Wait until the dimwits discover that Russian financial interests cannot be surgically excised from the world financial community without creating potentially cascading contagion.”

. . .

K          “If China and Russia agree to use the CIPS or the SPFS or some amalgam of the two, they can expand their efforts to circumvent the SWIFT.  The financial infrastructure is the ‘pipe’ and at this time PetroDollars are the ‘flow’ which could become superfluous if everyone is not forced to use the pipe.  And then America becomes Bulgaria.”

. . .

K          “What if Russia proclaimed that 1,000,000 Rubles can be exchanged for one ounce of gold.  And one ounce of gold can be exchanged for 1,000,000 Rubles.  Let the market respond.” 

. . .

K          “The U.S. decision to declare ‘World War E’ as they say could descend into World War Three.  The U.S. refuses to abide by a rules-based international system and instead does whatever it wants to do.  Russia may have declared war on Ukraine by default; the U.S. declared war on Russia and the world by design.”

. . .

K          “Don’t forget that when you have someone trapped in a corner, you are also in the same corner.”

. . .

K          “America no longer produces intellectuals.  Except for [Stephen F.] Cohen and [John J.] Mearsheimer and a few others [Michael Brenner], the American Foreign Policy Effete advances its own private, personal and professional interests even when those are contrary to America’s best interests.  They are treasonous.”

. . .

K          “Life presents many insoluble situations.  This was soluble.  This is the Cuban Missile Crisis played out in Eurasia rather than North America three score years later.  This is the Monroe Doctrine advanced in another region.  The solution was simple and obvious.  And remember that genius is simple and obvious.”

J          “Putin invaded.  Period.”

. . .

J          “China?  China owns the U.S.  Lock, stock and sinker.  Hook, line and barrel.”

K          “Okay, so we really do agree quite often.  What is the U.S. thinking when it antagonizes a country that should be neutralized and neutral and self-destructively drives that country closer to China.  Everyone should agree to leave Ukraine as a neutral buffer with NATO returning to the original borders.  Let’s focus on the real problem.”

J          “I know I am.  I am learning Mandarin so that I can interpret the conversations of the prison guards at the re-education camp.”

K          “This undertaking in Ukraine is a beta test for China.  They are taking notes.  When you are done with them, send over a few of the language tapes.” 

. . .

J          “Putin’s War.”

K          “Biden’s War.”
