Russian Vice-Premier Rogozin: Obama’s Mideast Policy Is Like A Monkey With A Hand Grenade

I will throw this at you!Russian Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin compared Barack Obama’s foreign policy in the Middle East to a “monkey with a hand grenade.”

His statement was communicated via Twitter on Tuesday:


The translation via Google is: “West Life refers to the Islamic world as a monkey with a grenade” or as the Telegraph translated it, “The West behaves towards the Islamic world like a monkey with a grenade.”

Obviously Rogozin isn’t afraid of being politically incorrect, and for that I commend him. Many in our society would be totally offended at the phrase he used, but he is right on.

Though Rogozin did not elaborate on his comparison, he has previously lambasted alleged plans of “Anglo-Saxons” to attack Syrian government forces.

The Vice-Premier’s tweet comes as Russia evacuates its citizens ahead of military strikes. The Telegraph reports:

A Russian emergency situations ministry aircraft carrying aid landed in Syria on Tuesday, and is set to take Russians and other CIS citizens out of the country on its return flight.

The Ilyushin-76 jet landed at the Latakia airport with 20 tons of humanitarian aid, mostly consisting of tinned foods and sugar, a ministry spokeswoman said.

About 180 people who “have expressed a desire to leave Syria”, 100 of them Russian, are set to leave on the return flight.

Russia said it had evacuated all of its defence personnel from Syria in June, but a foreign ministry spokesman said at the time that about 30,000 other Russians were still living across the country.

“The (government’s) military effort will not stop around Damascus. If the purpose is to limit the victories of our armed forces, they will not be successful,” Walid al-Moualem, foreign minister, told a news conference in Damascus. “We have two options: either to surrender, or to defend ourselves with the means at our disposal. The second choice is the best: we will defend ourselves.”

“If the purpose of a possible (foreign) military strike is to achieve a balance of power … it’s delusional and not at all possible,” he said.

He also said that it would further the interests of al-Qaeda, something we have been pointing out for quite a while now.

“The war effort led by the United States and their allies will serve the interests of Israel and secondly Al-Nusra Front,” he said referring to the al-Qaeda-linked jihadist group in Syria.

Russia warned on Tuesday that Western military intervention in Syria would have “catastrophic consequences” for the Middle East.

Ahead of a meeting of the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday, the Russian foreign ministry has warned the United States and Britain against repeating the experience of Iraq.

“Attempts to bypass the Security Council, once again to create artificial groundless excuses for a military intervention in the region are fraught with new suffering in Syria and catastrophic consequences for other countries of the Middle East and North Africa,” a foreign ministry spokesman said.

“We are calling on our American partners and all members of the world community to demonstrate prudence (and) strict observance of international law, especially the fundamental principles of the UN Charter,” said Alexander Lukashevich, a ministry spokesman.

The Obama administration, as well as Britain, France and Turkey, is considering an attack on Assad’s forces over allegations – which Russia calls unproven – that the Syrian government, locked in a fight against a domestic insurgency since 2011, used chemical weapons against civilians in rebel-controlled areas.

Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad maintains that Syria will never become a Western Puppet State. My hope is that there would be an “evolution” of sorts and member of Congress would stand up and challenge Barack Obama for going to war without Congressional approval. This move would violate the Constitution, which is a criminal act.

In fact, North Carolina Congressman Walter B. Jones provided a Congressional Resolution last year as a warning to Barack Obama about violating the Constitution and impeachment should he follow the same scenario he did in going into Libya. The Constitutional Resolution read in part:

Expressing the sense of Congress that the use of offensive military force by a President without prior and clear authorization of an Act of Congress constitutes an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under article II, section 4 of the Constitution.


It was created in preparation for a war with Iran, but it seems to serve the purpose in this scenario as well if only members of Congress would stand up to the criminal in the White House.

    Interesting, Obama wants to bomb Syria to stop current regime from using chemical weapons!
    30,000 Russians wandering around Syria.
    Kill many Syrians, few Russians, and start WW III.
    Not only starting a war without authority with Syria but with Russia also.

    What idiots in Washington do not understand simple logic.

    The “Monkey With A Hand Grenade” is a good portrayal of Obama. We know he acts on the Monkey principal (steal what he can – Chicago law) – but do we really know which damned direction he will throw the hand grenade? I think he will throw it at us here in the Constitutional United States (leaving out the Corporate US in Washington) – ergo the disaster preparation for that district.

    A bubba lesson for Obama:

    Bubba and Cooter stopped by on registration date at a local college to enroll.
    As they looked over the curricula, they saw a course on LOGIC.
    Neither knew what logic meant and they collectively could not agree on the subject.
    Bubba walked over to a Professor and asked him what Logic was.
    The Professor, seeing who Bubba was, had to think of a good example.
    Professor with example: Bubba, do you own a lawn mower?
    Bubba: Yes.
    P: Then I can logically assume that you live in a neighborhood you would like to stay neat.
    Bubba: That’s right – how did you know that.
    P: I can now logically assume that you are married and have several children.
    B: That’s right, Got two little kids and a nice wife.
    P: Then I can assume that you are heterosexual and not homosexual.
    B: That’s right. Now I understand Logic.

    Cooter: What did you find out Bubba.
    Bubba: Let me demonstrate what Logic is.
    Bubba: Cooter, do you own a lawn mower?
    Cooter: No.
    Bubba: Then you are a dirty cock sucker.

    Back to Bubba Obama Logic. Bomb Syrian regime in control. Kill off as many as possible and Russians can be collateral damage events; then help install the MB so they can join with IRAN and other’s of same cloth to win the world over to Muslim HOODS.

    With the hand grenade, his logic is to bomb in small increments, the schools and businesses of the United States. At this time, the very people that supported him twice in elections (Unions) have been screwed over. This has been the best UNION BUSTING EVENTs in the history of the Working United States population.

    Business, instead of Obama Care, go to less than 30 hour weeks, need no unions, hire low level educated slaves and struggle to be profitable under the Obama directives.

    Bubba Obama logic has failed with Unions. Unions appear (today news) to have awakened and found out that most of them own lawn mowers – which may be repossessed because many are now out of work.

    One more Hurray for Obama and his Bubba Logic.

    PS: I bet Obama does not own a lawn mower!

    Telegraph translation is incorrect and changing the very meaning of the text. The close translation would be as follows:
    “The West behaves towards the Islamic world like a monkey towards a grenade.”

    Mr. Rogozin really hit the nail on the head, he put it just like I would. Its time to get O’Bunky out of the middle east and really out of the WhiteHouse.Lets out source his job to Syria ,I’m sure the muslim brotherhood would want him ,maybe we could sell him to somebody over there that wants him. I know we dont !

    Just what are they talking about. High crime and misdemeanor , last time I heard of anyone killing someone was A FELONY not a misdemeanor. Are they planning on letting him get by with a slap on the hand because he is a black , murderous, piece of crap TRAITOR that needs to be hung instead of a slap on the hand. This WHOLE administration needs to be brought up on HIGH FELONY CRIMES instead of some lowly crime. We are talking of an ARMAGEDDON here…..what misdemeanor is in that. WAKE UP PEOPLE…..this THING in office is trying to destroy MANY LIVES in the process of becoming a dictator. He is the anti-christ and and he and his minions need to be dealt with and NOW before this gets out of hand and beyond the point of NO RETURN.
