    No, he is a god unto himself. You understand gods, don’t you? They can levitate and stuff.

    Putin offered Yanukovych $15 billion plus cheap oil and gas; Europe and the US are demanding that the Ukraine repay $13 billion to European and US banks and the World Bank and the IMF without getting any help from Russia (or anywhere else) and then the resources of what was once the breadbasket of the Russian Empire and the CCCP will belong to the Western 1% (and the leaders of the Western Ukrainian protesters will get a generous cut as well). And all the baseball bat carrying protesters from the bit that used to be Austria and was annexed onto the Ukraine by Stalin, strongly supported by the US, seem to be winning, so they’ll be handing the Ukraine over to the bankers very soon now (in exchange for a generous cut).

    I was reading up about something else when the following article caught my eye:
    Putin’s Ukrainian dilemma: the port at Sevastopol


    I thought it had some relevance to the cartoon since it mentions both countries in the cartoon.


    “The Ukrainian port, currently leased to Russia, is the heart of Russia’s activity throughout the eastern Mediterranean basin.”

    www.cnsnews.com has 2/28/14 article “Russia Seeks Access to Bases in 8 countries for its Ships and Bombers”;
    by Patrick Goodenough.
    -
    The 8 nations are strategic, worldwide. (Putin’s Empire?)
    Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua…..Algeria, Cyprus, the Seychelles…..Vietnam and Singapore.
    -
    “According to the British consultancy HIS Jane’s, Russia’s defense expenditure has more than doubled since 2007, and will have tripled by 2016.”
    -
    (The Bible says in several scriptures that in the end of this age, Russia will lead many allied nations in a concentrated attack on Israel, for the purpose of destroying Israel. Those will be the worldwide armies that Jesus Christ will destroy with a word when He returns to Jerusalem.)
