The Times Have Changed, And Not
One of my FB friends had this image posted on their page. This friend is an American. Except for the distinct lack of taste in choice of NFL team to be fanatical about, a damn good guy.
Quite the statement by an American isn’t it? A true Red, White and Blue to the bottom of his heart American.
You can see what I said in the comment field on my friend’s page. The word in Russian is, “Thank you”.
Wasn’t that long ago wishing the Russians or Soviets if you prefer anything good, well a week on the wrong side of the fence at Gunatanamo would have probably been a more palatable option to many Americans.
They’re talking about Syria here.
I’ve read some on the turmoil there. Made a few comments myself. What I’ve gleaned recently and with all the disinformation I don’t know how much I can really believe. What I’m getting, feeling, thinking is that in this conflict to some degree, the U.S. of A is fighting the Russians. and vise versa.
One thing I do know is that to many Americans before the fall, Russia and the USSR were the same thing.
I had actually moved this piece in to the trash. Wouldn’t you know about 5 minutes after I trashed it I saw something that made me retrieve this.
I saw that the Russians buzzed a US Navy Destroyer. This is pure stupid shit!
This is the mindset and behaviour that has to stop. Both Super Powers know better than this.
Peeing in the other guys soup just cuz. The mentality of a 6 year old on the playground. Someone “screws the pooch” when this thumbing of noses is going on and the world is going to have bigger problems than it already has.
While Russia and the USA are sorting out the mess that didn’t have to happen, those other problems will have an opportunity to grow and flourish.
