Thanks to FuturisTrendcast’s long-time friend and supporter paleohippy for a nice catch!
Lada has always told us that Russia’s role in history is in being the ‘great balancer’. This is a central theme in her work. Recently the vice president of Iraq, Nouri al-Maliki visited Russia and requested more ‘political presence’ from Russia in Iraq.
In one quoted statement to his Russian hosts, he said that Baghdad wants to boost relations with Moscow as it believes “in Russia’s role in solving most of the key international issues as well as improving stability and balance in our region and worldwide.” In using the terms ‘stability and balance’, and relating it globally, he is obviously keyed-in at some level with a sense of what Russia is all about.
Thank you, Lada, for always being out in front of what is really going on.
