Limited Military Intervention.

At the end of the 12th century
the king of England decided
to make a Limited Military Intervention
(via Wales) in Ireland.

At the beginning of the 21st century
the king of England still rules over
a part of Ireland.

Vladimir Putin, eat your heart out.

You are right, however, in seeking to resist
American Power.

But you are too stupid to realise that you can resist it only
with 'Soft Power', which through your military obscenities

you have ineluctably destroyed.
And America will continue profitably
infantilising us all to the very end.

Putin is merely the most immediate threat. Even though he has reigned much longer than Hitler, he has some way to go before matching Mussolini or Stalin. The real threat to people, animals and the planet started perhaps 100 years ago, more or less anonymously in Washington, Chicago and New York.

Putin is also an essentially capitalist creation – via the 'oligarchs' (monopolists) who seized control of Soviet industry as the USSR collapsed.
