Czar Putin Resurrecting Old Soviet Empire
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
upon a time in the land of Russka, Czar Vladimir of Putin, perceived
himself of a notion, and was, thereby, convinced (easily and quickly)
that somewhere it was written that he, and ONLY he, would be the savior
of the glorious Empire of the Council of Soviets.

necessary to begin the sacred campaign to restore the empire of the
The army of Vladimir of Putin, stripped all insignia of
the tribe of Russka from their battle dress, disguised themselves as
local bands of freedom fighters dedicated to saving the Cossack's
homeland from the influence of the western devils led by the Black King
of a much diminished mongrel people from many tribes and many lands who
were forever fighting among themselves for favors of the Black King or
for the Black King's throne. His domestic weakness stemmed chiefly from
the belief by many subjects that he was/is an interloper in the royal
line as his genealogy is said to lead to a paternal origin -- and his
own birth -- in the Land of the "Mountain of Whiteness" or Kirinyaga in a
land far to the south of the Cossack's homeland and far, far, to the
east of the land he now rules.
gravitas and power of the Black King has been measured on the scales of
Czar Putin and has been found wanting. As the question of his
legitimacy damaged his value as a leader, so the fealty and allegiance
of the near vassal kings, whose thrones lie near upon the continent of
the Cossack homeland, wavered. Worry rests with varying degrees of
security upon the heads of the kings bearing the crowns of the great and
ancient kingdoms bounded by the vast cold reaches of the great northern
ocean. Though they treat together in a mutual protection pact their
hearts are troubled by the Black King's penchant for seeking refuge
behind a cascade of words that pour from his golden tonsils onto mere
plowshares and pruning hooks once employed in their original shapes as
swords and spears by the Black King's predecessors to win the freedom of
these very same northern sea kingdoms from such as Czar Putin.

slipping quickly away and the lights of a once great city on a hill

too little taste of freedom before it was quickly snatched from them by
the power hungry Czar Putin, leader of the great army from the North.
has become clear to all that this war is a game played between the
primary combatants, the Czar and the Black King. It is already clear
that the Black King has lost and is but marking time, marching in place,
while the tides of history wash past him.
Czar Vladimir of Putin
looks westward. He would lock gazes with the Black King, but the Black
King will not. A newly formed bi-polar world knows instinctively that
the rhetorical war over the Cossack's land has become a "Game of
With apologies to "Game of Thrones" American
author George R. R. Martin and all the producers, directors, actors and
everyone affiliated with the excellent production of HBO we have
attempted to show just how ancient the the origin of the war, (and that
is exactly what it is) in Ukraine really is and the causation, which is
even more ancient than the war itself.
It is extremely rare
that the US finds itself negotiating from a position of weakness rather
than strength and this lethal bargaining position can only result in
many decades of slavery and oppression for those caught behind the
digital(?) curtain soon to descend between the two spheres of free and
unfree peoples of the earth.
Many of those of us who fancy
ourselves students of history are convinced that Czar Putin is intent on
resurrecting the old Soviet Empire. (Note: I refer to myself as
"a student of history" as I am still studying it and learning from
it." Only a fool deliberately ceases to study and learn.) If we are correct, he is not finished, not by a long shot. he wants and will take the remainder of the Ukraine.
It is said that without the Ukraine, Russia is a country. However, WITH the Ukraine, Russia is an empire!
Ukraine was, for many centuries, the breadbasket of not only Russia,
but of much, if not all, of Europe, as well. Though Russia is afloat
upon a sea of oil, one quickly learns one cannot consume oil as a part
of the human diet. Therefore a source of bread must be secured. Czar
Putin is well on the way to doing just that.
securing the Crimea for Russia was a given. As sure as sunrise, Putin
would, and did, seize that fertile peninsula mostly populated by old
Russian families long inhabitants of that enclave. It is quickly
becoming a staging base of uniformed Russian troops readying for a
massive push into the Ukraine proper to the north and west of the
Crimea. Oh, those "freedom fighters" in nondescript unmarked uniforms
sans unit insignia and country of allegiance insignia appear to this
scribe as Spetznaz GRU troops, elite Russian special forces troops under
the immediate command of the Russian military much like the US Green
Berets and US SEALs. Their demeanor is far more akin to that of active
duty military soldiers than of loosely run, locally controlled, militia
units. No. Without doubt, they are active duty Russian military.
by a deep seated, DNA ingrained form of national paranoia, Russia has a
bloody history of attacking and invading its neighboring countries and
holding them at the point of a bayonet to create an empire. Reluctant
though the citizens of those enslaved countries have been, they were
held together by spit, hay bailing wire, gut wrenching fear, and 7.72
caliber ammunition belched from the barrels of those infamous AK-47
And now, Putin is dead set upon recreating that
pseudo empire. It's not real, it's not genuine -- but -- it does have
the appearance of the real thing though it is a fake, a mockery, and a
falsity. It serves its purpose -- and that is to fool the "useful
idiots" of the west.
Days before those Spetznaz troops showed up
in the Crimea, this scribe off-offhandedly mentioned the fact that they
would soon arrive. And they did.
So. What can the US do? The short and accurate answer is -- nothing. The
current leadership of the US has neutered our armed forces and left us
with hardly enough military strength to protect the homeland and
certainly not enough to project what used to be formidable power in
diverse places overseas.
No longer. Obama has transformed the US into that "paper tiger" we have so often been accused of being.
