NEO – Putin’s New Mediterranean Strategy

Putin and Lavrov have continued their measured diplomatic moves with never a mistake or an open flank exposed. They have deftly danced around the US-NATO-EU neo-Cold War encirclement with a series of quick counter moves.

Rather than let the Southstream pipeline project drag out with the predictable slow death, Moscow just canceled it and announced a new Southern route through NATO's Turkey to the Greek border.

I would suspect these would be the new clean running ones that Russia is leading the world with.

The US and EU continue to flounder on the world stage like 50-year-old boxers and prostitutes way past their time, versus finding more dignified pursuits for their age.

The Age of Enlightenment for Europe is far in the rear view mirror, and the US claim as the protector of world freedom and democracy is a farce, well known now even in the illiterate world. The American people have had their country stolen, as if they were in a drugged stupor when it happened, but we labor on...
