Governor Palin Start Paying Attention: Obama's State Department Throws the Country of Georgia Under Putin's Bus

A funny thing happened at the G20 summit and it is being swept under the rug.

Obama and Putin were horse trading on Afghanistan. The New York Daily News on-line had a small paragraph about it, then they pulled the section.

Obama is looking the other way on Russia's willingness to stay in Georgia while the U.S. was seeking to regain a foothold in parts of the Stans close to Russia in order to move military hardware into Afghanistan.

Remember the base that was closed?

The parliament of Kyrgyzstan voted overwhelmingly yesterday to close a key US airbase on its soil, dealing a blow to Barack Obama's strategy for Afghanistan and signalling a strategic victory for Russia in central Asia.

The US base at Manas, near the capital Bishkek, acts as a crucial transit point for US forces in Afghanistan, with 15,000 troops and 500 tonnes of cargo passing through each month. It has taken on added importance as continued instability in Pakistan hampers alternative transit routes.


Let's see if a base nearby opens up and if it does; one should ask, at what cost did we pay Russia and how much military hardware will get "lost" in the back market. And what will be the cost to democracies in countries that want their independence from Russia?

There is a lesson to be learned in how wolves make their kill on large prey. Wolves hunt in packs and take down their larger prey. Russia and China have proxy countries that will eventually run in packs, attacking at a large country like the U.S. and will deny any connection.

What you see in the protest below, is just a smaller scale of prey and it is how Russia operates.

US urges calm ahead of Georgia mass opposition protests

The US has called on participants of an anti-presidential rally in Georgia scheduled for Thursday to remain reasonable and composed during the action, as Tbilisi prepares for mass public protests that many fear may turn violent.

“We call on the Georgian government and on everybody who is going to take part in the April 9 demonstration to do their best and ensure that the action is peaceful, and no violence brakes out,” State Department spokesman Robert Wood was quoted by Novosti Gruzia as saying.

“As Georgia’s friends, the United States stand by all of its citizens making an effort to build democracy,” he said.

The opposition accuses President Mikhail Saakashvili of an authoritarian streak that has stifled democratic reforms promised in the 2003 Rose Revolution that swept him to power in the former Soviet republic, Reuters reports.

War in August, when Russia crushed a Georgian assault on breakaway South Ossetia and sent tanks to within 40 km of Tbilisi, has emboldened critics who argue the president has made too many mistakes to stay in power until 2013.


The pro Putin protesters are out in force and this gives cover to Obama on his horse trading with Putin. He can just say it's democracy in action.

The New York Times today, the writer indirectly and unwittingly stated the same underlying mantra.

It is worth noting, too, that demonstrations against a government are a hallmark of democracy. Allowing demonstrations is a sign of Georgia’s commitment to democracy. It also is clear evidence that Zourabichvili — herself a vocal opposition leader who is often on TV making tough allegations against the government — is wrong to suggest Georgia is faltering on the path to a free and open government.


The writer has in the past, supported Georgia's efforts to fight Russia, but writes in a manner that while trying to prove there is democracy, weakens it by legitimizing the protest.

Are the protest a sign of democracy?

No, it is not a sign democracy, it is thuggery/anarchy in action, disguised as democracy and is an abuse and a mockery of freedoms with an intent to destroy it.

That is how Putin operates. And we get to see how our President Obama gets rolled over by Russian, Valdimir Putin.

As some know, Putin protesters are never peaceful, they like to riot. They do it in the Baltics, like Latvia.

The riot in Riga broke out in the evening, when Lithuania made tribute to the victims of January 13th. More than thousand people, mainly the youth, tried to storm the building of the Latvian Saeima. When policemen moved in, fighting started between then and demonstrators. Young men robbed liquid stores and fired several cars.

People who decided to storm the Saeima building, split into two groups (one of them consisted mainly of the Russian speaking persons). A.Stokenbergs, one of the organizers of the campaign, was glad that society supported the campaign „Society for Different Policy“. At the beginning of the meeting A.Pabriks, former minister of foreign affairs of Latvia and leader of the party „Different Policy“, dictated the phone number f V.Zatler‘s chancellery and urged people to call president and require dismissal of the Saeima.




The young folks you see in the video are Russians loyal to Putin and the Kremlin. I spoke to this before; there is a growing tension among certain Russians in Latvia and they are being supported by a pro-Kremlin underground.

In Georgia, there are accounts of subversion and assassination attempts by pro Kremlin forces and as I pointed to in a previous thread; Latvian officials expelled the Russian who was alleged to have been linked with an attempt to assassinate the Georigan President.

Sound like a country we want to do business with? That's Chicago politics and Obama is in his game. He knows how to play it. You just go along for the ride while the driver does the dirty work. And Obama is riding that bus, right behind the bus driver Putin.

As I said before, Governor Palin, it's time to step up and govern Alaska and make trading partners with the Baltics. Our economy here will benefit as will the Baltics.

The common denominator with Alaska and the Baltics is freedom from oppression and the chance to succeed without fear. That is something worth standing up for.

Revoke The Games

It starts with one belief in something great and then grows.

Being of the same mind set I appreciate the emotional ardor of your blog but lets keep the facts straight.

" More than thousand people, mainly the youth, tried to storm the building of the Latvian Saeima."
INCORRECT
Following a peaceful demonstration of about 10,000 about 200 chose civil disobedience after the rest of the crowd dispersed.
Yes, violent attacks on police and destruction of private property did take place which I'm afraid the authorities were not prepared for.
Because Latvian citizens ar not prone to violent demonstrations it can be assumed that the ethnic Russians chose this as an opporutnity to cause havoc.

Good to have someone on our side in the USA. Just keep the facts straight

Understand, as pointed out there were a segment of pro Kremlin factions that were causing the rioting.
