The 21st Century Is Finally Begun
by Bodwyn Wook
It is probably fair to say from to-day & henceforward that Russia ‘is back’ indeed on the stage as a contentious player & power-driven factor that must now be considered by North Atlantic chancelleries in the case of virtually all policy decisions; the key is Russian national interest, indeed, and President Putin in the last analysis is at least as canny a Russian nationalist as was Old Stalin, before him. Once again, the Baltic states, Poland & the hither Slavic states & Hungary will — must — revert to the Russian orbit & this is now the form of the Eastern European world probably for the balance of the twenty-first century.
The one great good thing to come out of this may be that from henceforward other territorial & constitutional states will resume behaving as states & not simply as a system of central banks, being milked in support of a would-be emerging & starkly unaccountable colossus of so-called ‘market states’.
But, for a mercy, the reassertion of Russia in the World marks in any case & for good & all an end to the New Antisemitism of these highly bogus & strictly made-for-Tee Vee ‘terror wars’ & other figments of the historically failed western Baby Boom generation that was so badly misled emotionally in policy by the essentially fallacious ‘reparative’ claims of a tragic, doomed Zionism.
