When Putin Meets Kissinger, All Bets Are Off...
by AL MARTIN (AL MARTIN RAW.COM)
(2-9-16) Last week Henry Kissinger went to meet his old pal Uncle Vlad Putin. Why? The defense appropriation bill for 2016 which is a $742 billion bill is before Congress now.
What they need in a political election year when nobody wants to stick their necks out, the Republicans are going to have some excuse and that excuse has traditionally come in having one of the Old Gang like Henry Kissinger or George Bush Senior make a visit to Putin and telling Putin, who’s a player in the Game and he understands, to raise a little hell somewhere -- not Yemen or Syria necessarily, but around his own borders somewhere -- maybe make another push in Ukraine or reignite the conflict in Chechnya.
This would be something that would make headlines and can be used by Republicans to get another record defense spending bill passed. Since Putin is a player and has been in power for quite a while, the only thing that Putin is concerned about is that he doesn’t want an indictment coming out of the United Nations or the international tribunal in the Hague because of the billions he’s scooped out of the Russian state coffers and then had hidden in Liechtensteinian banks, the very same banks that Henry Kissinger uses.
