Cohen is an old man, so he is not worrying about his career anymore. He’s already tenured, and what seems to matter to him during this time is truth. He has recently declared:
“Vladimir Putin is potentially America’s most essential, valuable national security partner.”
Obviously that does not line up with the New World Order ideology, which basically articulates the incoherent and perverse idea that Putin is the “new Hitler” and a supporter of a brutal regime in Syria.
How can you really be a supporter of a brutal regime when in fact you are destroying terrorist cells such as al-Qaeda, al-Nusra, and ISIS in the region and when you are freeing the civilian population? As the Russian Foreign Ministry has recently declared:
“It has been observed for a long time that the current administration in Washington is ready to help any destructive forces in its bid for a regime change in Syria.”
The US, the Russian Foreign Ministry continued to say, “protects the Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist group [now Jabhat Fatah al-Sham], which is nothing else but a branch of Al-Qaeda, which carried out the most gruesome terrorist acts in US history.”
The Russian Foreign Ministry dropped the political bomb when they declared that the White House
“apparently forgot that according to American law, support for terrorists is a severe, criminally liable offense. If you or I gave money, weapons or support to Al-Qaeda or ISIS, we would be thrown in jail.
“Yet the US government has been violating this law for years, quietly supporting allies and partners of Al-Qaeda, ISIL, Jabhat Fateh al Sham and other terrorist groups.”
The Russian Foreign Ministry has said that the US has been playing this political game from time immemorial, and it is high time that they get serious. That makes perfect sense. It is high time that political mush-heads stop playing with terrorists and get real.
Cohen has also made the point that NATO has gone mad by building major military bases around the Russian borders. Cohen leaves the impression that not a single nation on the entire planet would appreciate this madness—not even the United States of America.
In other words, Washington is actually playing double standards, and we all know that double standards have no place whatsoever in constructive dialogue and the political order.
Obama has less than a month in the White House. Perhaps he needs to wake up when it comes to Russia. He still can make an impression before leaves office. Russia and indeed Vladimir Putin would almost certainly forgive him.
Will he do it? Even if he doesn’t, we can congratulate Russia for making the New World Order bleed this year.
