There is much information in this article, which I found an excellent summary of what Putin said in his address at the Valdai conference in Sochi. I do see Mr. Putin as “one from the East” who is to assist in correcting the worlds systems, and bring us into a Higher Consciousness Age. Ones step at a time, I see him playing his role.
Thanks to RMN for posting this.
“Regardless of what you think or don’t think of Putin… this is probably the most important political speech since Churchill’s “Iron Curtain” speech of March 5, 1946.… Putin abruptly changed the rules of the game.
“Previously, Putin tried to play this game, expecting only that Russia be treated as an equal. But these hopes have been dashed, and at this conference he declared the game to be over, explicitly violating Western taboo by speaking directly to the people over the heads of elite clans and political leaders.
“Russia will no longer play games and engage in back-room negotiations over trifles…
“The builders of the New World Order have failed, having built a sand castle. Whether or not a new world order of any sort is to be built is not just Russia’s decision, but it is a decision that will not be made without Russia.
“Russia will not attempt to reformat the world in her own image, but neither will she allow anyone to reformat her in their image. Russia will not close herself off from the world, but anyone who tries to close her off from the world will be sure to reap a whirlwind.
[from Putin's speech] Today’s discussion took place under the theme: New Rules or a Game without Rules. I think that this formula accurately describes the historic turning point we have reached today and the choice we all face.”
Most people in the English-speaking parts of the world missed Putin’s speech at the Valdai conference in Sochi a few days ago, and, chances are, those of you who have heard of the speech didn’t get a chance to read it, and missed its importance. (For your convenience, I am pasting in the full transcript of his speech below.) Western media did their best to ignore it or to twist its meaning. Regardless of what you think or don’t think of Putin (like the sun and the moon, he does not exist for you to cultivate an opinion) this is probably the most important political speech since Churchill’s “Iron Curtain” speech of March 5, 1946.
