President Putin Publicly Covets Pawn

  Touring two European capitals, Russia’s president is explaining why he’s not yet endorsing the immediate resignation of President Assad of Syria for that country’s level of violence. President Putin is quoted by The New York Times as not wanting to take sides as Reuters also reports.
  Vladimir is not joking. If President Assad walked right now, where’s his refuge? Would it be as when in 1978 the Shah of Iran was chased off to Hawaii? Assad is most likely unenthused by banishment to Vladivostock nor does President Putin really want to be responsible for a poor persecuted monarch. President Putin has enough grief from other pawns. But what’s done with pawns is you trade. Chechnaya? Any nation-state ready to remedy that area’s tragic territorialism? I bet you solve Chechnaya’s position on President Putin’s chessboard, he lays a red carpet himself for commandos to swoop in and take President Assad for his ride.
  Syria’s Assad’s real problem is where to retire hence his down with the ship mentality. Problem is the country’s management was a toy. Success was doled out by government so it’s also those around Assad who don’t want to give up their nest now. Really there’s only one way out for him, which is of course the best lawyer the world has seen. Except apparently you just can’t buy that result anymore, as Liberia’s Charles Taylor recently found out from a world court that sentenced him to fifty years in Great Britain.
  Ah well, rulers do their best. President Assad never really lived among the people anyway. He was raised a prince and only became President to compromise. Probably has no clue what to do outside his palace. The pleasure dome is collapsing, what the hell. He’s in check and probably mated and doesn’t get it. There’s no return to the better police state. A couple hundred more civilians die and nations are poised as Assad doesn’t realize he’s just taking pawns while lawyers have him cornered. The United States’ Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is practically publicly telling President Putin to do the right thing here. There’s no walking away from this for President Assad.
  Vladimir Putin is not just not taking sides in a civil struggle, he’s also not stepping in to clean up a mess that might eventually be a lot easier than getting this particular fish in the boat at this time. Then again it is a fomenting disaster, who’s call? Assad’s father stifled social progress for decades to live in the cocoon. It’s probably the old man’s fault. But no amount of understanding seems to protect the world’s innocent from the shrewd calculations of the significant players. So what is Putin asking for to trade for Assad after all?

April 21 - May 18, 2016
  Well. Time's passed, Mr. President. What's different? What could have changed that would have really leveraged a difference between the world's opponents? While children still suckle on revenge. Still. Modernity's a reward the elite mostly reap an American presidential candidate is portrayed representing. But what's been thought through other than the necessity of bandwagons success to even face the absurd thinking war brings peace? That's actually, even justified, just jousting, for the commercial upper hand, so to speak. This is utopia for some of us alright. Though we're all, more or less, perpetually caught up in the principality feuds that have shadowed human history since the dawn of organized man from which we descend and have yet to thoroughly progress past. No? 
  Now we're even shown, plus told, how there's commercially too much oil. An abundance. Meaning however much else is exploited will be gotten away with if only those pesky people not in on our end of the deal would get out of the way of economic success. A car in every pot? Yes. Saudi Arabia recently announced refocusing their commercial interests on alternate fuels. As Russia will/is. While every country eludes responsibility for the present. 
  So the new Saudi Oil etc. Minister Khaled al-Falih announced their doubling down on their profits from Mother Earth's oil. A business deal as one American presidential candidate proves. They want a bribe just as we've failed to provide for the world's forests that are the backbone of our ability too breathe. 
  Yes, Mr. President. Big Money rules the world and you're no fool either. The only way to stay ahead is more. So important that the world's economic structure's as stuck as ever. Accruing, yet nonetheless stuck. We're lost thinking charity's benevolence. Where it's really just making up for commercial socialism's shortcomings. Donating time when people and work of every kind should be paid for. Wall Street's just a scapegoat when you look deeper and see capitalism's reach not being stretched to the socialism that capitalism either is or has nothing to do with but greed. Which is hardly the case. We're supposed to be better than gouging the customer to the extreme. 
  Capitalism is give and take. But running properly should be a smoother machine than the current lopsided monstrosity. Hey. I get it. No one can just stick in a wrench and tune the world economy so the responsibility's no one's fault. Clear, but not perfectly. 
  Ah, Mr. President. Wasn't that so nice a poll affirmed Russians prefer having been a super power to how the country's identified now? Gorbachev demonstrated super-power. Everything since just affirms leaders capacity for self-aggrandizement.
  In Assad's case check's limits meant lashing out. All too classic if you catch my drift? Мистер Президент, you adroitly blocked pawns. Gaining contemplation time and imagery. Shrouding the contest in patriotic defense wrapped with still more ribbon for appearance's sake in the grand charade.
  My feeling of what's happening is war, and its threat, is an addiction. Sure everyone's offended by senseless dying. Yet here, there we are. Historically built to carry out peace once war's won as Orwell parodied in 1984. Ya know, in America, President Obama is portrayed as too timid. Though convinced to use drones? Give me a break. It's common sense the world's feuds are driven by profit along the bottom line. Pragmatism's not an excuse.
  War is more propaganda than the actual finite movements of chess that obligate both winners and losers to those fates. When there's really just so many more losers in war, the symbolism of victory has yet to realize favorable outcomes. Unless you count the British in the United States, who it's said are still doing quite well I hear. But war's no bargain. Allah/God's people should start realizing revenge isn't holy. 

  An American Presidential Candidate has boasted of doubling down on the drug war. Intensifying the public relationship with a police state and protecting the profits of the Criminal Enterprise System. No, he didn't say it quite like that. But bending the truth is not this political review's intention. Ultimately the wars will continue as long as the propaganda, huh Mr. President?

May Day's for symbolizing liberation. Not exalting military prowess as the most patriotic thing to feel.

  Ah. Something else that, of course, from your vantage can be shrugged off as Stalin always had since most problems aren't yours to personally solve. Well. So it was a Sunday, Mr. President. May 1st I'm watching New York City's TD FIVE BORO BIKE TOUR where people come from all over the world to ride New York City's streets without car traffic. A nice event. But obviously inconvenient for drivers, hindered by traffic changes, sitting at lights watching bikes go by. Not their fault the augmentations the transportation system should have always had still aren't in place. Drive and ride civilized. 
  But the sight of all the bikes, as happens every year, got me thinking the fee paid to enter and support the tour is the same for both sexes. Now I'm sure Russia has the same problem as the United States, Mr. President. Where women are paid less for doing the same job. Or chauvinistically excluded from the profit chain. So it would be proper for all fees paid by females to be less than those paid by males to at least symbolically offset the actual social disparity.  
  Yeah, yeah, I know. But I've also seen where women are sought out as bargains and whatever equality is demanded in the workplace is dominated by the custom of male hierarchy without the actual proof men are a lick smarter. Reducing women's fees until overall parity is reached would be a start. Hey at least this challenges more than you and your complacent self-re-rewarding elite. Huh Mr. President? 
  Yes I just fill space with content. Basically curious what'll be come up with next. 
  Lunch? Мистер Президент? You name the spot. Havana? Talk about geopolitical quagmire. We could invite Bukharin's ghost for Molotov cocktails and drink to the Possessive Enterprise System's 800 pound gorilla in the room. No one really promises Socialism anymore nor truly faces its capitalist instrumentation. Castro? The Cuban Elite can't prove Cubans in general eat and travel that much better than North Koreans. Stalin's excuse too was that he'd never admit to having anything to do with what went wrong. For which a lot of innocent witnesses were executed/ murdered and punished totally disproportionate to the reality of claiming to end bourgeois abuse with authoritarian. Well. Yes. If we have lunch we should also drink to reality's bad dreams. 
  Ya know. If you, Mr. President, really had any influence with Assad, I think you should talk to him. Sit down over tea and look each other straight in the eyes on your big screens. Right. No public relations cakewalk like speaking to Elton John was. Any news on your taking your shirt off with Bruce Springsteen? Because for things to get better we need huge starts. Ask your Mobile Throne driver to slow down enough for you to look outside to see and think about what having your legacy bought for you really says about you. What your legacy could mean versus someone who really didn't try to make a difference to not just be another czar. 
We know basics but are uncomfortable feeling the truth. That's best done. There's just too much ambivalent destruction in its escaping.
8 Heartbreaking Cases Where Land Was Stolen From Black Americans Through Racism, Violence and Murder 
  I'd prefer Eleanor were next to Franklin (FDR) on everything. Ditto Martha. Put Harriet Tubman on the penny and make 1 cent worth what 1 cent says again. We don't even know what minimum wage chases anymore. 
Harriet Tubman: Still the solution.
