Have Obama & Kerry Lost Their Minds? Russian Deputy Premier Calls West ‘Monkey With Hand Grenade’

MOSCOW, August 27 (RIA Novosti) – A firebrand Russian nationalist-turned-senior official said Tuesday that the West was acting in the Islamic world like a “monkey with a hand grenade.”

Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, Russia’s former envoy to NATO, did not elaborate on his comparison, made on his Russian-language Twitter page.

I don't think other countries hate us for our freedom

but the elites sure do. Our elite owned media is designed to make us sleep thru the destruction of America so we can have a nice 2 class society just like Russia after their socialist revolution. So of course the media is beating the drums of war.

I have an uneasy feeling that

Americans will be bombed on their own soil in this war with Syria and Iran.

If we attack Syria....

Americans will finally understand what Dr Paul meant by "BLOWBACK"!

I can't believe all the

I can't believe all the psychopaths news reporters and pundits on MSM constantly beating the drums of war.

Not one word mentioned about possible retaliation and what that might look like.

The winds of war

The winds of war
The winds of war
Are blowing, are blowing

The winds of war
The winds of war
Are growing, are growing

No depth, nor ceiling
No heart, nor feeling
The winds of war
The winds of war

Like fire gone wild
Consuming mother and child
The winds of war
The winds of war

The earth does shake
The heart does break
The winds of war
The winds of war

Yet from above
Shall come that Love
To make all new
E'vn me and you

No more, no more
These winds of war
No, Never again
These winds of war

Regardless of your opinion of

Regardless of your opinion of the man, his analogy does seem like an apt description of John Kerry, the Obama administration, and the lunatics like McCain and Graham in the US Congress.

I think he meant

a DRUNK monkey stung by a bee with a hand grenade.

There's a Hindu description of the mind as a drunk monkey stung by a bee and this sounds similar.

If I were Russia id draw a

If I were Russia id draw a red line over US intervention in Syria. Obama would poo himself and go find a corner to wallow in.

One thing to remember......

They do not unseat Presidents in times of war..... Everything since WW2 has been a "police action" (undeclared war), even Nam, Iraq, and the big poppy field.

War may be just what this admin wants, and with "I'll stand by the Muslims" in office, it could drag on for years!

That would also give them the Martial Law FEMA has been prepping for, thin the population, end the scandals and destroy the constitution and bill of rights!

"Papers please!"

The poor Muslims may become the next "Jews" for slaughter!

Heaven forbid!

A valid point I suppose but

A valid point I suppose but too conspiratorial for my taste. I think this is nothing more than Obamas incompetence on display. US is not far gone enough for him to get away with what you suggest, even if he were smart enough to conceive it.

2 out of 3 ain't bad? 8)

But you see, you and I are free thinkers. There are many who will sacrifice another to save their own skin.

Do you believe the Germans of 1933 we're any different than we are? Perhaps we have progress in skills and ability, but consider those in DC and the actions we now face..... we are in a police state!

The Patriot Act, cameras everywhere, Spying, restricted travel, Real ID, cell phone and car tracking, credit and bank cards, indefinite detention and warrantless searches, a POTUS who believes it is ok to kill Americans.... how far do you really think we have to go to relive Hitlers Germany?

Our only real hope of prevention is that the military would side with the people and not become the gov't brown shirts!

When you look at New Orleans during Katrina, and again at Boston.... what are the odds?

Soldiers are trained to follow orders. How many would die before enough would question their loyalties?

While what you say is true in

While what you say is true in the technical sense it's taken out of context. Don't misunderstand me, I agree, those powers can be abused. They are of concern, at this point though, those things aren't happening. Obama isn't locking up his political enemies.

Obama isn't locking up his political enemies?

Tell that to Bradley Manning and Snowden!

But you are partially right....he drones most of them or sends in Holder or the IRS to fix the problem!

Then Kerry, Carney or his media whores will either hide it or defend him

Like a commercial I saw at the VA Hospital today.....

A baby in a stroller is saying something about being surprised a mime is talking....

Does it surprise anyone that Russia is actually showing more sense, and making a better show of freedom (Snowden) than our "Sweet land of liberty, our land of the free and the home of the brave"?

Just wait til the race

Just wait til the race baiters get ahold of that one.

Umm...

Since I find myself in total agreement with Dmitry Rogozin, we must be in the Twilight Zone.

This guy knows what he is talking about from personal experience...

But Rogozin, who used to head a popular nationalist political party and now oversees Russia’s military industrial complex...

Commented about that here.

I hear you..

I keep finding myself rooting for the Russians lol

This is my third day of making calls and knocking on doors

and catching people in parking lots to ask them to call their congressman and senators, as well as sign a briefly-worded petition in opposition to war. I even give out a card with the politicians number and addressed envelopes with a few copies of the petition to have them get signatures and send them in. Anyone else have any suggestions?

Hero

You are the true hero.

Perhaps put up some simple how to videos so that others may follow your important lead.

(Yes sometimes people need to see others doing it to take action. It's a mental barrier.)

God bless you.

Not a hero

Just a regular guy performing a simple task. How odd that disturbs you.

Actually I have been doing this on occasion for the last couple of years.

!= Disturbs me

I was paying you a compliment.

I appreciate there is a truckload of sarcasm on this site, so it can seem to look the same.

I applaud all those that are out there actioning where others merely talk.

So again, well done ! Keep up the good fight.

OK

It's hard enough to get people to sign without trying to film them. Many will agree and tell me that they hate the idea of more war, but when I lift my pad and pen up they take a step back--uh uh....

I would never try to film someone that I am trying to get help from without informing them. The cops are another story--they work for me and I don't trust them much.

Try to get first post in

On major newsgroup such as newsvine for MSNBC for example.

Your post will be well read, and it will work the shills into a rage since you are beating them at their own game.

Just check for new articles on the major news sites and be the first to comment.

Even better, pre-write your comment for any Syria warmongering article, so you need only copy/paste and BINGO! First post in.

And Kudos to you for your efforts. Keep up the good fight!

This may actually be the

This may actually be the tipping point. Americans are pissed and not down on this war at all. In mainstream news comments people are openly discussing false flag operations and how this was set up. Is the administration really that arrogent thinking they can shove this down our throats? Even hardcore Liberals cant support this kind of action.

Let this be Obama's bridge too far...

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

They're on the verge of

They're on the verge of getting caught, the chemical attack was the work of US allies. Kerry coordinated it and Obama approved it. These people need to be brought up on international war crimes immediately.

Or a monkey with an

Or a monkey with an AK-47?
