The fault, dear Vladimir, is not in the stars, But in yourselves

Filed under: Politics,Russia — The Professor @ 7:26 pm

I have heard that experts in Europe have concluded that the colossal failure of the Phobos-Grunt had nothing to do with extraterrestrial plasma waves exploding from the sun, or nefarious American radars, but something far more down to earth:  specifically, the craft was powered by faulty fuel.  Given how risible the alternative theories are, this one has the ring of truth, especially given the utterly shambolic nature of the Russian space program.

But of course admitting such a thing is unacceptable for Russian officialdom.  Hence the search for non-Russian scapegoats, no matter how ludicrous the story.

I wonder if they fool themselves.  They certainly aren’t fooling anybody else, and make themselves look fools in the bargain.

  3. Anders, you just linked to G. Edward Griffin, author of ‘The Creature from Jekyll Island’ and the guy who influenced Barry Goldwater back in the 1960s as to the global elite’s plans for an eventual capitalism-socialism marriage between the USSR and the West. And ironically enough, a regular on the Alex Jones Show. Any more amusing coincidences?

    I suppose given the fact that Edward NotHaus has been labelled a domestic terrorist for selling certificates backed by gold and silver that DO NOT pretend to be U.S. currency, that once gold bugs start getting promoted on RT and ZeroHedge (well they already are) SWP will decide goldbugging is now a neo-Soviet exercise, and Big Sis ought to luck up all goldbugs post haste.
