WAKE UP, AMERICA! WAKE UP, WORLD!

Is this woman on the picture shouting "Putin, come!"? (http://www.vocativ.com/…/calls-for-texas-independence-surg…/)

I won't be surprised if this movement will be organized under George W. Bush leadership, a former governor of Texas and a former president of the US.

When W. was running for presidency in 1999, in his speeches, he used a phrase "if Texas were an independent state, it would be eleventh largest economy in the world". He knew what he was saying, weren't he?

Russian Putin would be the first to congratulate his "friend George" and to give him the best support possible, including lethal weapon and ammunition along with "polite green little guys".

...I was just kidding.

Now seriously. Brexit, Texit, etc. is a continuation of a process ignited by Russia's president V. Putin when he annexed Ukrainian Crimea and moved into Eastern Ukraine.

By the way, in early 2014, Putin started talkie about claiming back "historically Russian" Alaska and California. When I shared the news that day with my American friend John, he smiled and jokingly said: "Good luck!"

There will be no joke, when sooner or later we'll see and hear in news about ALexit and CAexit and some pro-Russian Alaskans and Californians will start shouting "Putin, come!"

Maybe, after that in Washington and London will finally realize that Budapest Memorandum had not to be just a piece of paper, and Putin had to be taken seriously as a danger not in February 2014, but much earlier.

When? Well, I would say, at the end of his second term as Russian president when he sent Aleksandr Medvedev, Gaspromexport's president, with a group of young Russians on a secret mission to Washington.

That mission was about promoting Dmitriy Medvedev, then Russian Prime-Minister and Putin's puppet, as Putin's successor - the next Russian president.

Those days, I did't know about this. I was just wondering, what A. Medvedev doing here, secretly (there was no single word in mass media) meeting four or five powerful senators, several congressmen and a Secretary of State deputy. The was talking that in a couple of weeks A. Medvedev will come to Washington again to have private dinners with each member of US Congress they met by that time separately. The visit was lobbied by... Capitol Police Association.

A month or so later, when Putin officially announced Dmitriy Medvedev as his successor, I realized, what was Aleksandr Medvedev's secret mission was about.

Usually, political circles and mass media in the US are very critical about appointing successors before elections. Not that time! Political leaders and mass media in the US in one voice started saying that it was a very good choice of Putin.

Gaspromexport and lobbyists did a great job to convince Americans that Russia is making a good step toward democracy. Pardon, "managed democracy".

At that time, nobody even suspect that it was temporarily - D. Medvedev was just a throne keeper, that Putin goes nowhere, that very soon he will be back to continue his dirty job.

With a situation in and around Ukraine, with Russian aggression spreading around the world, we have a lot to think about and even more to re-think.

I call United States of America, I call the entire World, if you want to live in peace and to prosper:

> STAND UP FOR UKRAINE!

> STOP RUSSIAN AGGRESSION AGAINST UKRAINE!

> DO NOT ALLOW KREMLIN PROPAGANDA TO INVADE YOUR HOMES AND COMMUNITIES! OTHERWISE SHORTLY AFTER THAT YOU HAVE TO EXPECT REAL INVASION OF "POLITE GREEN LITTLE GUYS", GROWN UP NEXT DOOR AND WITHIN YOUR COMMUNITY!

WAKE UP, AMERICA! WAKE UP, WORLD!

GLORY TO UKRAINE!

GLORY TO UKRAINIAN HEROES FIGHTING AND GIVING THEIR LIVES FOR FREEDOM!
