Putin Isolated? What about his new best mates France and Germany

Putin, Holland, Merkel - No Obama or Cameron, wassup? (image source)
Last summer I had a bit of a kerfuffle here with someone who tried to give himself authority by mentioning that he worked in a university. Well lots of people work in universities of course, janiors, mainteance staff, gardeners, porters, catering people and so on.

Given the knack this guy possessed for being wrong about everything he could have been a lecturer, or even a Professor, he was certainly crazy enough.

What I had done to piss him off was see the brewing Black Sea crisis from a Russian point of view rather than simply parroting the White House / Whitehall / NATO propaganda demonising Putin and Russia and claiming Russia was isolated in the international community and the leaders of all other nations were queuing up to have their cock's sucked by the Rent Boy President Barack Husein Obama.

It wasn't true then and it is less true now. While it might seem obvious to note that Angela Merkel has chosen to pass on that dubious privilege, the absence of China, Iran and half the African nations from the Obama fan club is also signigicant.

Since the election of Syriza last week Greece has pivoted towards Russia, Egypt, Turkey, India and Brazil have all been cuddling the bear too.

Isolated, I think not. In fact it seems our friend from Dumedown University is the last one to wake up to the fact that Obama's US Administration is the real warmonger, the aggressor state, the power that likes to meddle in the domestic politics of small nations.

And now we see France and Germany openly dismissive of Obama's eagerness to arm the neo Nazi thugs who were shoehorned into power in Ukraine after last years CIA engineered coup.

Well here's something to help him get a better grip on reality.

Following yesterday's summary of the utter farce that the Minsk Summit/Ukraine "peace" deal talks have become, the various parties involved appear to be fracturing even faster today. The headlines are coming thick and fast but most prescient appears to be: Despite John Kerry's denial of any split between Germany and US over arms deliveries to Ukraine, German Foreign Minister Steinmeier slammed Washington's strategy for being "not just risky but counterproductive."

But perhaps most significantly is France's continued apparent pivot towards Russia... Following Francois Hollande's calls for greater autonomy for Eastern Ukraine, former French President Nicolas Sarkozy has come out in apparent support of Russia (and specifically against the US), "we are part of a common civilization with Russia,” adding, "the interests of the Americans with the Russians are not the interests of Europe and Russia."

Even NATO appears to have given up hope of peace as Stoltenberg's statements show little optimism and the decision by Cyprus to allow Russia to use its soil for military facilities suggests all is not at all well in the European 'union'.

With France pivoting and Merkel turning her back on Obama's arms-for-Ukraine proposals, perhaps Vladimir Putin can be forgiven for an impromptu exhibition of "jazz hands" at yesterday's Minsk Summit preparations...
