REVIEW & REBUTTAL BY
Paul: Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine is a gross violation of that nation’s sovereignty....
ANYT: Senator, Putin did not "invade" the Ukraine. The Russian soldiers and sailors stationed in the Crimean peninsula are legally there, by treaty. As for the paramilitary units that deployed after the violent coup in Kiev, those are CRIMEAN militias, similar to our own State National Guard units. Not a single Russian soldier has actually crossed the border into Crimea.
Paul: .... and an affront to the international community.
ANYT: Senator, how and when did China, India, Africa, South America, and Asia cease to be part of "the international community"? You are aware that there is much more to "the international community" than the deviously demonic dolts in DC, New York, Berlin, Paris, & London, right? Worldwide opinion polls have shown time and again that the true "international community" views America, not Russia, as the greatest threat to world peace. Most of the world either supports Russia, or is not commenting on the matter for fear of displeasing America.
Paul: His continuing occupation of Ukraine is completely unacceptable...
ANYT: Again, what "occupation" are you talking about? There is no actual occupation to even be "unacceptable" about!
Paul: ... and Russia’s President should be isolated for his actions.
ANYT: Isolated for what "actions"? Not only has there been no "invasion"; to the contrary, a careful reading of Putin's statements over the past two weeks reveals that he is the only player in this drama urging peace, calm, and the rule of law. Senator Paul, are you willing to say that Obama should be "isolated" for his Predator Drone attacks that have killed so many innocent men, women and children?
Good Luck "isolating" Putin. Outside of the degenerate Marxist West, the world loves him.
Paul: It is America’s duty to condemn these actions in no uncertain terms. It is our role as a global leader to be the strongest nation in opposing Russia’s latest aggression.
ANYT: "Global leader"? Randy boy, if not for the fact that your peace-loving father is still alive and well, he would be spinning in his grave at hearing such vile imperialistic Globalist puke spewing out of your lying stinking mouth. Before the great and good "Global Leader" lectures peaceful Russia about Crimea, perhaps it should clean up its own act first; and stop waging wars, staging coups, imposing sanctions, and bombing villages whenever some uppity nation dares to disobey the "Global Leader".
Paul: Putin must be punished.......
ANYT: "Punished"? Who the frickety frack are you to speak of the popular leader of a 1000 year old civilization in this manner, Putin's mother?
Paul: ....for violating the Budapest Memorandum
ANYT: Oh look. How cute! Randy Boy is trying to sound learned and esoteric. Been brushing up on your geo-politics have you dandy Randy? Did your Neo-Con buddies spoon feed you that talking point about "the Budapest Memorandum"?
The Budapest Memorandum of 1994 guaranteed the safety, territorial integrity and political independence of Ukraine, in exchange for its agreeing to get rid of its nuclear weapons. The signatories included Russia, United Kingdom and the United States. By any objective interpretation of that agreement, it is the USA, not Russia, that openly violated the Budapest Memorandum by financing, fomenting and orchestrating a violent coup in the Capital City of Kiev.
America violated the Budapest Memorandum by openly calling for the overthrow of an elected government!
(Left) Senator McCain rabble rouses the Kiev mob which later turned violent. (Right) Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland (Nudelman) proudly poses with her hand-picked Ukrainian puppets.
Paul: ...and Russia must learn that the U.S. will isolate it ......
ANYT: "Must learn?" Yikes! Go ahead and "isolate" Russia. They have more of the planet rooting for them than for us.
Paul:....if it insists on acting like a rogue nation.
ANYT: Senator, the only reason you were able to skyrocket from being an unknown Eye Doctor to a US Senator was because your father was the only politician with the decency to admit that warmongering America was a "rogue nation". Does the mass death and destruction that America the Rogue has visited upon the innocent people of Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Palestine, Syria etc. affect your conscience, at all? Do we see "Putin The Terrible" doing these horrible things anywhere in the world?
Who is the REAL "rogue nation"?
Paul: This does not and should not require military action. No one in the U.S. is calling for this.
ANYT: Senator, if the bloody history of the past 100 years has proven anything, it is that sanctions often lead to wars. You say, "No one in the U.S. is calling for this (military action)". What do you call the provocative deployment of missiles and the expansion of NATO right up to Russia's borders? America did not tolerate Soviet missiles in Cuba (1962). How much longer do you expect Russia to put up with it?
Paul: I recommend a number of specific and decisive measures to punish Putin for his ongoing aggression.
ANYT: And I recommend you return to your medical practice. What bloody "aggression" are you talking about? Are you aware that not a single Ukrainian-Crimean has been killed or injured? The only "aggression" that took place was that violent CIA-backed, State Department-backed, EU-backed, McCain-backed coup in Kiev!
Paul: Economic sanctions and visa bans should be imposed and enforced without delay.
ANYT: "Sanctions", "Bans", "imposed", "enforced" - spoken like a true Global tyrant!
Paul: I would urge our European allies to leverage their considerable weight with Russia and take the lead on imposing these penalties.
ANYT: Now Paul wants to dictate to Europe as well. And if certain European nations refuse to comply with the Senator's "urge", then what? Shall we "impose" sanctions on them as well?
I want YOU to obey the United States!
Paul: I would do everything in my power to aggressively market and export America’s vast natural gas resources to Europe... President Obama has left Europe completely vulnerable because of its dependence on Russian oil and gas.
ANYT: Like all good Globalists and Neo-Cons, Paul believes that Europeans should be America's little dependent children.
Paul: It is important that Russia become economically isolated until all its forces are removed from Crimea....
ANYT: Hey poop-for-brains! Has it occurred to you that a Russia-China counter move against the Dollar Reserve currency status could implode our own bubble stock market and crash the dollar? Are you so stupid and reckless as to think that proud nations such as Russia and China will accept abuse and humiliation at your hands?
Paul:....and Putin pledges to act in accordance with the international standards of behavior that respect the rights of free people everywhere.
ANYT: Senator, again, how exactly has Putin acted out of "accordance with the international standards of behavior"? Can you cite one example? Just one? Oh, speaking of "international standards of behavior", do you recognize these photos?
In violation of all "international standards of behavior", US jailers at Abu Graib were given authorization to torture and murder Iraqi prisoners of war. "USA! USA! USA!"
Paul: The U.S. should suspend its participation in this summer’s G-8 summit and take the lead in boycotting the event in Sochi. If Putin’s troops remain in Crimea at the time of the summit, Russia should be expelled from the group.
ANYT: "Suspend", Boycott", "Expel"...more "libertarian" language!
Paul: I would re-institute the missile-defense shields President Obama abandoned in 2009 in Poland and the Czech Republic.....
ANYT: You need not worry about Obongo, Senator. Truth be known, that cold-hearted bastard is as much of a warmongering bully as any of your new Neo-Con buddies are. He won't "abandon" the missile systems scheme; trust me! Now tell us Senator, what if Russia decides to blow up the missiles in justifiable self-defense? Are you prepared to go to war over the "missile shields"?
Russia will not tolerate missile defense systems (designed to give NATO a 1st strike advantage) to be deployed on its borders.
Paul: ....only this time, I would make sure the Europeans pay for it.
ANYT: More arrogant dictates aimed at our European children. "Make the Europeans pay for it?" How do you intend to do that, Rand? Europe is even more broke than we are! Will you refer their debt to a collection agency? Take Merkel and Cameron to Small Claims Court? File a lawsuit? Shake them down at gunpoint? Please explain.
Paul: America is a world leader, but we should not be its policeman or ATM.
ANYT: Sleazy Senator Paul is playing semantics here. Only "The World Leader" can act as "The World Policeman", and as World ATM. You can't have it both ways Randy Boy.
Paul: At the end of the day, I still agree with former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mike Mullen — the greatest threat to America’s security is our national debt.
ANYT: Senator, you are aware that your desire to build new missile systems and trigger a mutually destructive trade war will actually increase our National Debt, right? Oh, that's right. I forgot; the broke-ass Europeans are going to pay for the missiles. My mistake. (rolling eyes)
Paul: Like Ronald Reagan, particularly regarding Russia, I also believe, “Don’t mistake our reluctance for war for a lack of resolve".
ANYT: Dude! Newsflash! The Cold War ended nearly 25 years ago. The Soviet Union collapsed and disintegrated. Its largest Republic, Russia, has neither attacked nor threatened anybody since. Why are you talking like this?
Does Rand not know that the Berlin Wall was taken down and the Cold War ended?
Paul: I stand with the people of Ukraine against subjugation.......
ANYT: The "subjugation" of Ukraine's democratically elected government came at the hands of violent, western backed mobs, not Russia!
Paul:....and support their efforts to restore freedom.
ANYT: Senator, the only people whose "freedom" has been taken away are the Crimean Russians who are now being forced to live under an illegitimate government based in Kiev. Have you even bothered to spend so much as 15 minutes to research both sides of this controversy?
Paul: The Ukrainian people must be free to determine the fate and future of their own nation without unwarranted military or political intimidation from Russia.
ANYT: The Ukrainian electorate was free to determine its own fate and future; and they elected President Yanukovich. It was the "unwarranted political intimidation" from America and its EU puppets, not Russia, that subverted the will of the electorate.
Senator, are you aware of the fact that Yanukovich, in fear of his life, was forced to flee the violent CIA mobs of Kiev?
Paul: Putin’s invasion and occupation of Crimea certainly now go far beyond tweaking.
ANYT: Again, what "invasion"? What "occupation" How can Crimea be "occupied" when it is 2/3 ethnic Russian anyway?
Paul: The U.S., in cooperation with the international community, should respond to Russia’s aggression with action.
ANYT: Again, what "Russian aggression"? You want to see "aggression" Senator? Lets' have a look at what your Neo-Con buddies and Senate colleagues did to the innocent children of Iraq, and would love to do to the children of Iran and Syria next (if only big bad Putin would allow them to)!
"USA! USA! USA!"
Paul: The Budapest Memorandum said that Russia wouldn’t violate the integrity of Ukraine, but now it has.
ANYT: No, it hasn't. Again, it was the U.S. that interfered with Ukrainian politics, not Russia.
Paul: There is no realistic military option in this conflict, at least for the U.S. But this does not mean there aren’t options, many of which I’ve outlined here.
ANYT: Hey Dumb-Ass! The options you have outlined, in particular the missile deployments, would greatly increase the probability of a shooting war.
Paul: The real problem is that Russia’s President is not currently fearful or threatened in any way by America’s President....
ANYT: Ah yes. Putin must learn to be "fearful" of and "threatened by" the Great and Mighty America. "USA! USA! USA!"
Paul: ....despite his country’s blatant aggression.
ANYT: What "blatant aggression"?! Not a single Russian soldier has invaded Crimea. Not a single Ukrainian soldier has been killed, injured, or taken prisoner. Not a shot has been fired. Not a snowball has even been thrown! There hasn't even been any subtle "aggression" on Putin's part, let alone "blatant".
Paul: But let me be clear: If I were President, I wouldn’t let Vladimir Putin get away with it.
ANYT: No Rand, let us be clear: We who supported your honorable father in 2008 & 2012, will NEVER support such a sneaky, sniveling, ambitious, swaggering, arrogant, two-faced, lying little snot-nosed swine like you. What's ironic is that, in the final analysis, Putin is actually far closer to your father's philosophy and noble character than you are!
"There are individuals that have used offices of power and they believe in One World Government. And if you believe in One World Government, then you are talking about undermining National Sovereignty and setting up what you could well call a dictatorship."
- Ron Paul
"The UniPolar world refers to a world in which there is one master, one sovereign, one center of authority, one center of force, one center of decision-making. This is pernicious - At its basis there can be no moral foundations for modern civilization.”
Vladimir Putin and Ron Paul are more man than Rancid Paul will ever be!
