Russia is determined to oppose attempts to legalize the practice of replacement of governments in various countries by foreign intervention, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in an interview with Interfax on Thursday.
“Contradictory processes that are unfolding in the world mean that resolute action is needed on our part,” Lavrov said.
“We will continue to oppose attempts to legitimize change of regime operations under the flag of ‘responsibility for protection,‘ and to advocate the solution of problems by politico-diplomatic methods with respect for the sovereignty, territorial integrity and equality of all nations,” he said.
“This means more complicated and subtle work than brutal military interference, but that alone can ensure long-term conflict settlements and further stable development in conflict-stricken regions of the world,” the minister said.
“One can assume confidently that in 2013 the problem of conflict prevention and settlement will remain one of the priorities for the world community,” he said.
Conflict prevention and settlements?!!! How will arms manufacturers make their money? Bombs and missiles and billions of rounds of ammo aren’t just going to fire themselves!
So it looks like this Russia guy is saying that wars and instability and depleted uranium poisoning and refugees and failed states is, like, a bad thing or something. Dude, how will we make our money if we don’t use this stuff so we can make more? Think of the starving children of Raytheon and Lockheed executives!
I sure hope he means it this time. Kosovo. Iraq. Libya. You were like the kid who knew he should be defending these little brothers, but you stood by the sidelines and let it happen. I don’t want to see Russian men getting killed, but jeez. If there was ever a Good War waiting to happen, it’s now. The USA has become a clownish, tattooed, sexually perverse copy of the Hollywood version of the Third Reich. The USA is not even imitating the real thing; it’s imitating the Hollyweird Nazis. I guess the ultimate trap of slandering someone else, is that you become the reality of your fantasy slander.
It’s certainly possible that we will live to see the US government lose a world war and get Nuremberged. I can just see the German judges presiding over the war crimes trials of the neocons!
If I was the military occupation government, I would not execute the neocons. I would let them live out the rest of their lives in comfortable confinement with a family life if their family waanted to be in the confinement with them. However, I would require them to spill the beans about what they’ve been doing with their lives, the stories of their intrigues in excruciating detail. The defeated government would be required to tell its story in detail to the people of the world. The full archives would be freely available and copied to the world, and from these archives, books would be written and documentaries made.
Gott mit Rusland!
