U.S. Embassy Luxembourg – Statement on Russian PM Medvedev’s Planned Visit to the Grand Duchy
The U.S. Embassy in Luxembourg, responding to news of the Russian Prime Minister’s planned visit issued the following statement:
“Luxembourg and its government find themselves at a unique time and in a unique place for advancing the right of all countries and peoples to “stay what [they] are”. It is a unique time as Russian Prime Minister Medvedev comes to Luxembourg just after the fifth anniversary of the illegal annexation of Crimea by Russia. Luxembourg is a unique place because Luxembourg was twice in the position of Crimea – occupied by a larger foreign power insisting it give up its identity to become part of a larger empire. Now, the world will watch to see if Luxembourg officials accept a different future for the people of Crimea than it insisted for itself, or will instead look the other way. To challenge illegal aggression, Luxembourg is at the perfect moment, in the perfect place, to forcefully call on Russia to reverse course and leave Crimea. After all, who in Europe or even around the world has greater standing to raise this issue?”
Comment: clearly there is no such thing as “US diplomacy” out there. All that’s left are a sad gang of illiterate ignoramuses who don’t even realize how utterly offensive and yet also comical they look in the eyes of civilized people. The local reaction was predictable:
“The Luxembourgish government does not need tutoring from another state or embassy about how foreign policy should be defined. This is unacceptable!”
Is this a German dialect, Plattdeutsch or Alemannisch?
Letzebuergish.. It is a hybrid language/ dialect. Mostly lower German but with lots of similarities to the Dutch dialect of the south of Limburg, the most southern province of the Netherlands.
Here’s the translation to English by Google Chrome
“The Luxembourg government does not need any help from another state (or embassy) as to how to define foreign policy here. In fact, from termination I wanted to sacrifice the official rendezvous with Russian prizes (because the government is well represented). Now I have changed my mind and will be here. That’s not it!”
My German suffices for me to understand this.
The last comment would be, in German, “So geht das nicht!”
Literally: “So goes it not!”
“Eff off, mate!”
Clearly Luxembourg has no understanding of how a ‘Hegemon’s vassal’ should conduct themselves in proper prostration before the hegemon.
Paul Craig Roberts has a fine rant below in which he mentions Australians Julian Assange and hag Julie Bishop:
Perhaps Julie Bishop, who appears as a ‘kiss up, kick down’ type much like John Bolton, could coach Luxembourg?
As evidence of her credentials for this read the following from March 2017 by another Australian- James ONeill:
“The Australian government’s selective view of history and capacity for self-delusion in its foreign policy was on full display when Foreign Minister Julie Bishop delivered the Fullerton Lecture to the International Institute of Strategic Studies in Singapore on Monday 13 March 2017.
She called on the United States to “play an even greater role as the indispensable strategic power in the Indo-Pacific.” “It” (the US) “is the pre-eminent global strategic power in Asia and the world by some margin,“ she said. The region was in what she called a “strategic holding pattern and waiting to see whether the US and its security allies and partners can continue to play the robust and constructive role they have for many decades in preserving the peace.” ”
It’s enough to make you weep -after heaving has exhausted itself.
Thanks God, Julie Bishop quits politics. But that’s not a guarantee that future Foreign Ministers (right or left – Australian politics is ambidextrous) won’t continue to embarrass themselves with the same kind of inane utterances.
You mean as per Alexander Downer?
I have no tears left and my stomach and bowels have long been evacuated. I live in Australia and feel shame on a daily basis. I do what I can in my small way to undermine the established order and bring about freedom for the people. Australians may be slowly waking from its coma – not sure but there are very small signs. Let’s pray that it grows at warp speed.
Austfailia is finished, Yuri. The ecological Holocaust is hitting hard already, and we ain’t seen nuthin’ yet. Our ruling elites must be among the vilest, stupidest, greediest, most pig ignorant, vicious degenerates ever produced by Homo destructans. Within a few decades, perhaps less than two, the uninhabitability of the Indonesian archipelago, caused by ecological devastation and rising wet bulb temperatures, will trigger a massive population exodus, and they won’t be going north. I’d love to see our current PM, the Pentecostal moron-thug, SloMo, stand on the northern shores, like some utter Cnut, and threaten those masses with his wrath. That would be worth the price, any day.
If you are right then Australians must be fully armed !
Why, Arthur? So that they can kill their neighbours and gain the privilege of being among the last to die?
I feel your pain and frustration. It is same here in Canada.
Julie Bishop is a 50-60 year old mutton-dressed-as-lamb airhead. She would say and do whatever was necessary to get her picture taken. She likes open-plan offices so she can look at her reflection in the glass. Thankfully she is standing down at the next election, which can’t come soon enough. I realise this description is not particularly damning given the current crop of luminaries. In fact, you could say amongst her peers she is an “intellectual” – whatever that is?
If Bishop was mutton, her advanced state of emaciation would require the humane intervention of a veterinarian, to end her suffering. Come to think of it, that’s not such a bad idea.
Mulga Mumblebrain: ha ha ha… Brilliant. The level of complete subservience by Aussie politicians is so cringeworthy, so over the top in how low they can lower themselves in their prostration to Uncle Sam, its just…. *@#*!€π*. Thats another reason I pretty much wiped mainstream media, seeing all that crap. Does Shorten still report to the U.S Embassy? Sad. Sad. Sad.
No! Bill Shorten was bought by Richard Pratt back in 2006.
Which is why Shorten led the putsch against Rudd when Rudd annoyed Shorten’s Zionazi owners by changing Austfailia’s votes at the UN to be less slavishly groveling to Talmudistan, and by expelling a MOSSAD agent from the Talmudistan ‘Embassy’, after the repeated theft of Austfailian passport identities by Israel, after they had ‘promised’ not to do so. This latter, ‘recommended by our ‘intelligence’ imbeciles, smells awfully of a set-up, to me. Which led to the installation of the Sabbat Goyess incompetent, Gillard, who set back female empowerment by decades with her sheer stupidity, doe-eyed adoration for Obama as he used our Parliament to declare war on Chjina through the US ‘pivot to Asia’, and utter political incompetence, which paved the way for Abbott, Turdball and SloMo.
You’ve forgotten the most important player.
Remember the Sydney born Israeli Mossad member who blew the whistle on Mossad’s assassination team in (I think) Qatar after they took out the Hezbollah member. He was apprehended and placed in an anti-suicide cell where he was promptly suicided.
And of course Julia Gillard did her pilgrimage to Jerusalem and had Peter Costello as her tour guide.
True, Andrew, save that the ritual killing in Dubai was of a Hamas operative, not Hezbollah.
Julie had jumped over the 60 hurdle.
IQ? It’s why they called her ‘Brains’ behind her back in the Liberal Party.
Are you trying to tell me Bishop was par with Martin Bryant?
I think that’s a tad unfair on poor Marty.
Australia will stop direct financial assistance to Palestine, media reported
July 2, 2018, 14:26
MOSCOW, July 2 – RIA News. Australia will stop providing direct financial assistance to Pal-
estine because of suspicions that the Palestinian National Authority may use these funds to
finance political violence, 9News reported, citing Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.
– The Foreign Minister reportedly announced on Monday that it had stopped annual deduc-
tions in the amount of 10 million Australian dollars (about 7.4 million US dollars) to the World
Bank Trust Fund for the reconstruction and development of Palestine.
“I’m sure that previously Australian funds provided by the Palestinian Authority through the
World Bank were used for its intended purpose,” Bishop said.
“However, the minister expressed concern that assistance to the Palestinian Authority” cre-
ates the possibility of using its own budget for actions that Australia would never support. ”
– Bishop reported that Australia will now help the Palestinians through the UN Humanitarian
Fund for the Palestinian Territories.
– According to the TV channel, this UN fund for the Palestinian territories helps 1.9 million Pal-
estinians by providing them with medical care, food, water, shelter and modern sanitary condi-
tions. About 75% of the fund accounts for the Gaza Strip.
– The situation with the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, which has been going on for 70 years, re-
mains difficult. The recent US decision to transfer its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem only
exacerbated the situation and provoked another round of escalation of violence on the border
of the Gaza Strip and Israel.
Azorka, when the local Zionazis say ‘Jump!’, our political vermin screech, ‘How high, Sir!’. When they say, ‘Starve some two-legged animal children!’, monsters like the, thankfully, childless Asbestos Queen, yell, ‘As you command, oh Great Ones (and don’t forget my cheque, Sirs’. And any politician that dares champion the Palestinians in their endless Hell on Earth of vicious, racist, oppression, will immediately be assailed, by the political vermin and the fakestream media degenerates, led by the Evil Murdoch hate-machine, as ‘antisemites’, but, then again, real respect for humanity is definitely ‘antisemitic’.
Well said, Mulga.
The ‘…robust and constructive role….in preserving the peace’, is such an Orwellian insanity, considering the several million slaughtered in Korea and Indochina, and the millions slaughtered by US favourites like Suharto, that only a graduate of the Belsen School of spiritual emaciation like the Asbestos Queen, Bishop, could utter it. No, sorry-such deranged sycophancy and total indifference to genocide is compulsory for all Australian political scum. The few exceptions, the occasional truth-teller on the Left edge of things, is immediately abused and harassed with vicious fervour for their ‘anti-Americanism’.
insane. This is really embarrassing and completely ridiculous. Is that supposed to mean that America should remain ridiculous, corrupt, fascist, hypocritical, tyrrants? Help me out here please.

I have to admit that I was surprised by that statement of the US Embassy, which was openly meddling in the foreign policy of another state. Somebody should explain to the Embassy that Russia never “annexed” Crimea, because it is impossible for Russia to “annex” it’s own land. Crimea was annexed by Ukraine in 1954 and reunited with Russia in 2014, where it belongs. The Embassy should also be reminded that in the 19th century the US fought two wars with Mexico, annexing huge areas of northern Mexico. Double standards seem’s to be the basis of US foreign policy, beefed up with gangsterism, as we are witnessing in Venezuela.
The US considers Luxembourg as a “unique place” because it was “occupied by a larger power” and “became part of a larger empire”..
Yes that is very unique. Never happened before anywhere.
Also, why does the US think that Luxembourg “should accept a different future for Crimea than it insisted for itself”? That seems contradictory..
I think the State dept needs to hire some better writers.
“I think the State dept needs to hire some better writers.”
No, I think the state department needs to fall on their collective swords, as all the trump quisling, war criminal/organised crime regime, to save us the trouble of hanging them.
They are just idiots. Don’t bother trying to make sense of their nonsense.
”I think the State dept needs to hire some better writers.”
Not really. The State department has actually created a new genre called litterature. It has got both the trashy writers and the amused readership it deserves. Really, in a Freudian slip, the owner of the erstwhile ”La Russophobe” blog, Kim Zigfeld, wrote ”The Statement department” — that’s something I believe is both funny and on point, ha!
Lewis Carroll: Through the Looking Glass.
“When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.’
’The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’
’The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master — that’s all.”
The US long ago ceased appointing career diplomats to fill the positions of ambassadors and counsels. Instead, what we invariably find are top donors and fund-raisers – or the persons that they choose – are handed these position as a kind of reward for helping to get the candidate elected.
So you have persons with little or no skills in diplomacy being put in sensitive positions around the world.
Just look at the State Department. The man currently heading it, Mike Pompeo, looks, talks and acts like a gangster. He knows zero about diplomacy and how it works, so he issues threats and ultimatums to friends and foes alike.
The fact of the matter is, the US is in advanced terminal decline and there is nothing that anyone can do to avert it – the lack of diplomacy is just one of the symptoms.
“The US long ago ceased appointing career diplomats to fill the positions of ambassadors and counsels. ”
Point well taken.
Buuuut, Jeez, you don’t have to be a career diplomat, or even have a college education , or even a high school education, to avoid putting your foot in a dog turd and then walking it about. Words fail to adequately describe the brazen primitiveness combined with hegemonic arrogance.
Among “simple” steppe tribes there is a sense of honor and awareness of proper comportment—especially when a guest in another’s tent—that is utterly beyond the mental and moral capacities of these Yankee yahoo to imagine, yet even perceive in a slight movement of the air the scent of disapproval.
Thank heaven some people nowadays speak plainly on Twitter.
Dont worry folks Bill Shorten is the son in law of the former Grand Prior of Australia. He has been selected to to a colloquial reboot of Brexit in the land of Oz. Little Billy Lickspittle is all for having a referendum on ditching the Royal family. He will lead Australia into its breakup phase…long overdue…accoding to global capital. With his republic venture the states of Australia will have their hands untied to declare themselves free from the Federation yoke. The Yanks have already prepositioned military assets in Western Australia and in the Northern Territory. As a guide for the timeline simply consider the date the UK’s aircraft carriers come on line. Shortly after that the Brits and the Yanks (aka septic tanks) will put Australia under the gun and divide it in their interests.
“how US imperial hubris has gone bonkers…”
Well, the trump regime is a likud colonial satrap. They represent likud interests and mimic likud arrogance. The same attitude. Look at how the netanyahoo regime behaves, look how their trump quislings follow suit.
Israeli Navy ready to block Iranian oil exports in transit – Netanyahu
“Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israel is prepared to throw the power of its naval force – and urges the world to join in – to block the Iranian oil shipments circumventing unilaterally imposed US sanctions against Tehran.
“Iran is trying to bypass the sanctions on it through the covert smuggling of petroleum via the sea. As these attempts expand, the navy will have a more important role in efforts to block these Iranian actions,” Netanyahu said at a navy cadets’ graduation ceremony in Haifa on Wednesday.
Failing to explain how exactly Israel’s relatively small naval force would impose the suggested blockade against Iranian oil tankers, Netanyahu only emphasized that Israeli sailors are well-trained and adept at carrying out sea missions against adversaries.”
The likud zionazi-gays don’t do diplomacy in public. They make threats and demands.
That typical european swineherder Frau Merkel gave the chosenites a handful of submarines fitted out to launch nuclear armed missiles.
Silly goyim dont get the notion they are not wanted in the future arriving shortly. Silly goyim dont even have souls.
Anonymouse-the former Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi of Palestine, Kook the Elder, still a ‘revered’ figure in certain circles in Israel, outlined the Talmudic respect for the goyim. He stated that, ‘There is a greater difference between the soul of a Jew and the soul of a non-Jew…..than there is between the soul of a non-Jew and that of an animal’. Talmudic, Rabbinical, Orthodox, Pharisaical Judaism, call it what you may, is certainly a cult of mutual respect and universal love, don’t you think?
Jeez, what happened to freedom of the seas?
Of course, Israel doesn’t recognize international waters.
Just as it doesn’t recognize international borders when they get in its way.
So, why should anyone recognize Israel’s right to ply international waters?
Why not just bomb Israeli vessels out of the water?
Why not apply the USA’s preemtive strike idea to Israel?
Israel has openly threatened Iran, so by rights Iran can preemptively strike Israel, defensively.
What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.
Obviously Netanyahu is trying to create an international incident to take eyes off his corruption trial at home.
Another pathetically obvious gambit.
A lesson of history is that the demented supremacists among Jewry never know their limitations. They are never satisfied with ‘enough’. Like Rocco in Key Largo, they exist to grab ‘More’ and more and more, until they, inevitably, provoke a hideous reaction, then the elite Jews escape, and leave the lumpen Jewish community to face the consequences.
That situation has been exacerbated by Zionazism, and the Jabotinsky, straight fascist, insanely aggressive tendency that Satan-yahoo so wonderfully represents. There the ancient ‘oldest hatred’, that of Judaism for the goyim, has been worsened by the typical Western colonists’ genocidal hatred of the Indigenous inhabitants whose land must be stolen by the European Herrenvolk for their God-ordained lebensraum, and scarcely lesser hatred for any goyim (like Corbyn) who dares to support them, and by the fear and increased hatred of the goyim that grew out of the horror of the Nazi Judeocide.
Add all that to the perverted personality of Satan-yahoo, backed into a corner by his corruption, and you have a sure recipe for a New Purim of aggression and genocide inflicted on Iran. Look out at Purim time, a favourite date for Zionazi aggression and blood-letting in recent years, usually inflicted by Israel’s puppet attack dog, Thanatopolis DC.
Netandyahoo’s statement is a vicious strategic attack on Iran’s oil trade in the form of a clear threat : ships carrying Iranian oil just might not arrive at their destinations. They might disappear en route. This will have, or is hoped to have a detrimental effect of insurance coverage of Iran’s oil. No one in their right mind ships billion$ of product w/o insurance. IMHO it will be effective. Unless some Big $ (Yuan? ;-) ) steps in to underwrite this trade. The point here for me, is that the insurance companies make out either way.
The US is the laughing stock of the world. A busted flush.
They are just a clown with a very large army (all they have left). And even that army is impotent when faced with Russia, China etc.
Poor old Luxembourg…. probably another colour revolution coming up soon in downtown Luxembourg City. I wonder how the nutters in Washington will spin it? Grand Duke Henri is a threat to peace in Europe? Luxembourg plans to invade Germany? Luxembourg is a totalitarian dictatorship threatening U.S Diplomats? Would the wonderful humanitarian George Soros lend a hand to help bring peace and democracy to this troubled little country? Seriously tho, how much longer is the World going to put up with these mass murdering thugs? How much longer is this madness going to go on for? Part of me almost wishes the entire freakshow would just implode, and go the way of all other Empire’s in history – tho none of the others had enough nuclear weapons to wipe the entire planet out.
The Americans had a former Australian prime minister, Harold Holt, in 1967, “eaten by a shark”
Holt was not keen on the US policy in Vietnam.
Since then, one of the people who kidnapped and murdered him owned up before dying.
Clearly, no Australian politicians want to be “eaten by a shark”
Here is some fake news:
“What happened to Harold Holt? Australia tries again to solve riddle of missing prime minister”
My understanding of the HH disappearance is that HH was “all the way with LBJ”
Senior people who wanted to stop Oz involvement in Vietnam organised for him to be strong-armed into changing his policy and he was accidented.
Not too many years later Gough Whitlam ended conscription and withdrew our forces from Vietnam.
I’m looking forward to Mulga’s commentary here.
I don’t knows Babs. As far as I’m concerned Holt drowned while showing off his late middle-aged fitness to some ladies, by diving into a rather rough sea. The local sea-lice probably finished off the cadaver-they’re voracious beasties. Gough, the Great, Immortal, only decent PM we have ever had, upset the Thanatopians, so they sent CIA coup-meister Marshall Green, the organiser of the genocide in Indonesia in 1965, as ‘Ambassador’. And then Gough made the mistake of appointing John Kerr as Governor-General, despite Clyde Cameron and others warning him of Kerr’s history as a US ‘asset’ since WW2. Gough thought he could browbeat Kerr, but Kerr was just the front-man, and was, no doubt, ‘encouraged’ not to bottle it. Then the descent into the current Hell of rule by Pentecostal imbeciles, began.
“Since then, one of the people who kidnapped and murdered him owned up before dying.”
Alfred C Who was this person?
Everyone – please stay on topic. Otherwise take this conversation about Australian politics to the MFC. Mod.
Alfred, you have two things wrong. Harold was dead before he hit the water as Simmons told us, and it wasn’t the Vietnam War that Harold objected to, but rather Pine Gap which Harold believed would make Australia a target in any foreseeable war.
Did you know that there were more Australian conscripts killed on the Hume Highway that in Vietnam?
Please take these off-topic comments to the MFC. Mod.
I think you can’t follow the opinion of the US-gov. Everywhere where they give recommendations is war, and everywhere where they helped is later only dust and ruined economics.
Seriously how is it possible that theUS-Embassy can do statements like that?
My opinion to US: Make US great, but be smart don’t touch on other’s success.
”It is a unique time as Russian Prime Minister Medvedev comes to Luxembourg just after the fifth anniversary of the illegal annexation of Crimea by Russia.”
Haha, it’s always very pleasurable indeed to note that Russia’s good ol’ annexation has been neither forgiven, nor forgotten. Crimea suffers horrendously from not being protected by the philanthropic society of NATO.
Go Cri-me-a river.
In light of the fact that Putin followed all international Laws regarding autonmy of any given peoples, there is no blame nor any reason to reverse the voters decision to become under the umbrella of the russian Federation. It was the only Humanitarian thing that could be done to avoid serious repercussions had Kiev had its way.
This smells of stevie mnuchin’s trying to get his greasy fingers on some of the offshore loot stashed in Luxembourg.
”To challenge illegal aggression, Luxembourg is at the perfect moment, in the perfect place, to forcefully call on Russia to reverse course and leave Crimea.”
In exchange for what, exactly? A Nobel peace prize?
Likely that most Americans probably think Luxembourg isn’t a real place and exists only in fairytales. Almost none could place it on a map. Likewise I remember reading in one of their own propagada articles on Bloomberg or Washington Post, that a survey of ‘educated’ Americans answered ‘yes’ to the question ‘should the USA support the rebels in Kyrzbekistan?’- of course a fictional state! These people are the result of decades of glorification of state sponsored violence in media.
The rest of the world is now under no illusions about America and its ways. The British element of the Anglo empire are a bit more knowledgable about geography but they want their Empire back, ruled by homosexual private schoolboys and will use their classic divide-and-rule psyops and manipulation perfected over centuries. Right now they are trying to break up the EU because Germany is getting too close to Russia with Gas deals etc. EU need to break free from the Ocean powers and quickly align with Russia and China. Before it becomes the next Kyrzbekistan.
I have to say that I am somewhat surprised. I didn’t know it was that bad in Australia. Never read about it before.
Mulga’s actually understanding the conditions within Australasia. It’s worse! Welcome to the 54th State of the USA
America dictates, Russia and China negotiate.
Guess in Washington they will like this even less –
“Russia and Luxemburg will hold negotiations on signing a framework agreement on cooperation in space research and use, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Tatiana Golikova said on Wednesday.
The vice-premier who heads the Russian part of the joint commission for economic cooperation between Russia and the Belgium-Luxembourg Economic Union noted that Luxembourg had been the first country to adopt legislation in the extraction of natural resources in outer space.”
And they will not be pleased about this either -.
“Italy is planning to officially announce its support this month for China’s Belt and Road Initiative, the Financial Times says, citing comments from Michele Geraci, undersecretary in the economic development ministry”.
What with the Korean talks wrecked by Bolton and the laughable “coup” in Venezuela, things are just not going the way the empire would like, possibly because fewer and fewer people are listening to them.
Luxembourg should have been part of Germany. Or France. Or Belgium. It’s a vestigial trace of the Bergundian KIngdom left over from the Carolingian Frankish Meltdown
Crimea is a complex issue where both Russia and Ukraine have claims for various historical reasons.
But what we must more be looking at is whether all this African and Mid East immigration that the EU Globalists elites have let flood in to the EU the past decades is going to be used to recruit an army to suppress native people in Europe, and or embark on yet another war against Russia (aka 1810 & 1941).
