Putin's Jinni May Not Want To Go Back In Its Bottle!

Updated on April 27, 2014

Rasputin was a mystic. Is V. Putin a believer in jinn?

With the current leadership in the United States so leery of still another new and perhaps endless international commitment, it appears Russia's Vladimir Putin can retake any parts of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) he wants, if he is willing to commit troops, equipment, and rubles to his game of "people, people, who's got the people?"

If he really cares about his international reputation, he will settle for having energized support at home, and be satisfied with his first big Crimean gulp, while leaving eastern Ukrainia for a second morsel when his apparent hunger returns.

Let's face facts. Vladimir Putin is an unreconstructed Soviet communist whose sense of heroism dates back to his days as a rising KGB star who made it to the big time, even to the top where he presently presides as the latest in a long line of Soviet dictators.

He now has the full attention of better heads than mine, and he has all of them guessing at what his next move will be, and what he really wants.

I am most interested in how the old USSR's doctrine of atheism will play out.

Can Putin fashion a neo-USSR in which such a personal liberty as religion could be revoked at this stage?

Perhaps he might be able to, if he can become a new Cxar, with victory parades, and with new gulags to match those of Josef Stalin.

How appealing is that to a man who cannot even control Chechnya?

He may come to realize (and don't see him as any kind of an idiot) that it was one thing for the western nations to look on while he touted his physique and cult of personality; and even to wink at his U Turn on economic opportunities and the crushing of political protest; but it is quite another thing to expect that there are no Americans who have learned the lessons of The Sudetenland, Austria, Czechoslovakia, and Poland which plunged Europe into the Second World War.

God was mocked by the atheistic communists of Putin's scrapped USSR. Will God forgive Putin and others the classic 70 times 7?

The hypocrisy of a man who criticizes the present Ukrainian government for using its military to regain control of its country, is clearly evident when, at the same time, he is selling arms to Syria's dictator in order to enable him to drop barrel bombs on unarmed civilian women and children. Such hypocrisy labels Putin an enemy of God.

Adolf Hitler found out what happens to such hypocrites who think themselves destined for greatness. Ironically, it was the Russian people who were the instruments of Hitler's downfall, while the success of the Ukrainians' populist movement in ousting Putin's sycophant Yanukovich gave Putin his first frightened glimpse of his own handwriting on the wall. Push the Russian people and the west too far, and today's popularity will take on a very different form;.

My advice? Go back to trying to subdue Chechnya, Mr. Putin. If you can't even accomplish that, give up the idea of reconstituting the USSR and its vassal states. History has moved on, but it isn't forgotten or misunderstood.

      "Give a man a little power and he soon begins to use it unrighteously."

      "Handsome is as handsome does."

      "Fear God, and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of man." There is nothing else.
