Marc Rubio has a change of heart. Previously, the political prostitute used to drum for unnecessary conflict with Russia:
“Rubio has in the past said that he would diplomatically isolate Russia by excluding them from all talks unrelated to the Ukraine crisis. His position listed on his campaign website is to ‘cease diplomatic engagement with Moscow on issues not related to resolving the Ukraine crisis.’
“He said the same in a speech in October and in a March 2014 column in the Washington Post, where the Florida senator wrote that Russia ‘should be removed immediately from every international forum not essential to resolving this crisis, including the Group of Eight.’
“It’s not just his record on Russia that makes it hard to believe that he wants improved relations. He has been a consistent opponent of diplomacy with Iran, he is bitterly opposed to normalization with Cuba, and he was an early opponent of restoring ties with Syria before the civil war there. Like most other Republican hawks, he has denounced the ‘reset’ with Russia, but for some reason we’re supposed to think he wants to copy it.”
Rubio used to call Vladimir Putin a “gangster” and a “thug.” He once declared that “Vladimir Putin is an organized crime figure that happens to be the head of state.”
Not anymore. There is a new Marc Rubio boiling up. He seems to have realized that Russia is actually the new sheriff in town. He seems to have noticed that Russia is literally obliterating ISIS and other agents of the New World Order in Syria. As the old saying goes, if you cannot beat an enemy, you might as well join him. Rubio wants to resume diplomatic relations with Russia.
This is another victory for Putin. It is also a victory for those who are against the New World Order and its agents.
