Putin prepares the Russian empire to strike back | The Guardian

As prime minister for the past four years, Vladimir Putin never really went away. But his looming reincarnation as the all-powerful, executive president of Russia – the country’s “paramount leader” in Chinese parlance – poses a stark challenge for which the US, Britain and other beleaguered western powers seem ill-prepared. As president, potentially until 2024, Putin has one overriding objective: the creation of a third, post-tsarist, post-Soviet Russian empire.

Elements of Putin’s strategy to make Russia great again are slowly coming into focus. Much of the plan is defined by Russia’s opposition to the US, the traditional foe. …

On his eastern flank, meanwhile, Putin is busy reviving the idea of a remodelled union embracing the former Soviet republics of central Asia,…

Putin’s third empire project also includes, crucially, a tightening of Moscow’s politicised grip on Europe‘s strategic energy supplies.

So now we have the return of the Russian empire. A new cold war is starting with China. A covert war between Iran and the west is full steam ahead. Syria is plunging into a civil war that could potentially drag in Israel. Israel’s neighbors are primed and ready for war. There is a global financial crisis that threaten to bring down a large part of the world. And finally the US has pretty much started to go into decline.

Did I miss anything important?

  1. The war with Russia and America has been building since March 20,2003 with the U.S led invasion of Iraq.
    The coming destruction of Damascus in Isaiah 17:1-3. will be the straw that will brake the camel’s back. The peace that U.N. Envoy Bill Clinton will mediate will be broken when a Russian led coalition will be brought from the north against Israel, America and Nato.
    This war will bring about the destruction of America as a world power.

  2. I’m with Melvin. Isaiah 17 would lead to the “hook in the jaw” event against Israel — the latter day tribes of Israel is what people forget, that is.
