He is winner. China is a winner. USA is the loser wasting money on wars that are not of their own.
Putin does not even dream of becoming a tsar, and Russia is Definitely a Christian Country Now. Have you been there, recently? Well I have about 14 times in last 10 years.
You obvioulsy is one of the hundreds of permanently concussed fools Pentagon brought home from Iraq. lol
Guido is a massive humiliation for the USA by the way after Kerry admitted USA was defeated in Syria the day Russia entered Syria on the side of Assad who is still the president of Syria by the way. Trump agreed with Kerry saying USA has nothing to show for the trillions spent there.
It's one of the most absurd things I've ever seen.
Your claim is something I often hear mainstream media in the West claim. But no one ever presents any proof. In comparison Wikileaks released proof that Soros finances leftist groups and tries to affect European elections towards the left/marxism. I think your (and MSM's) claims are simply you trying to group all your "enemies" together and paint the world black and white, ie. "either you're with us or against us" as George W. Bush Junior once said (ironically, since you hate Bush too but harbor the same mentality). Edit: Oh yes I forgot how you guys never want to mention or talk about Ukraine's neo nazis, post-Maidan. I guess "Nazi" is only bad for you when it suits your agenda, otherwise it's acceptable.
It is the US and the west that continually builds up Russia's position. It seems that no election in the world is not influenced by them, no opposition to them is brutally crushed. Yes Russia has a huge advantage due to large land mass and global warming is allowing more of that land to come into play, so it will always be a major player but it really just wants to deal with its own problems not the worlds.
Praise putin and god bless him.
Putin’s game is to play with the division of the western world. After all, the West led by US has tried to destabilize Russia with unending hostility. Look at all the pint-sized new NATO countries along Russian border. Look at all the fabricated propaganda like Skrypal affair, Navalny affair etc. To a logical person, this is nothing but an endless game of propaganda against Russia. Putin’s action is ’payback’. The western world always think that they could sell anything through their MSM and military muscle. Well, others have learned the basic tools of the trade.
West Led by the US in to irrelevance. 21st century is clearly Asian.
I think the "West" is too broad a term. The Baltic states will always be Russia's enemy as will Poland, the UK and the US. However, Russia has good relations with Austria, Italy, Greece, and some other European states.
I seem to recall that Poland tried to persuade Russia to join Poland and dominate the EU, not a Putin thing, thus it is cosing up to the US after being rejected by Russia.
TRUE !! We Americans had better start to worry. The world is changing very fast. In 1970, the only thing we imported from China was chop sticks. 50 years later the situation has changed drastically.
Today however with more than 600 million wealthy Chinese citizens in China's middle class that is almost twice the entire US population they cannot get out of China without losing the planet's biggest consumer market with much higher purchasing purchasing power than jobless and debt loaded Americans without any disposable income after repaying their massive personal debt to the bank.
Walter, I suppose you realize the only thing that keeps the USA afloat is its Military Industrial Complex. the USA has the largest defence budget in the world and its bigger than the next 27 countries combined (26 out of those 27 being allies of the USA)
you are right .... america should concentrate on their health plan, economy and stop always branding others as fools as well as their bullyings! Just look at the present internal turmoils, that speaks volume about US incompetency
Russians should be thankful for president Putin. He is one of the greatest politicians of the time.
Germany was on the way to becoming a superpower and then Angela Merkel happened.
Today the reality is neither the US nor UK has anything useful to offer to the world but their proven junk weapons even Houthis proved absolutely useless.
Germany maybe an economic powerhouse but that is where it ends. They have no military worth mentioning. They are still militarily occupied by the United States.
Germany is a strong economic power. However, it is not a super power, nor can it influence world events, being lodged in Central Europe, which is dangerous, as it will try to expand, something that goes back to the 13th century when German knights invaded Russia. Germany needs to be watched.
France and Germany are the two main countries that run the EU. It's only a matter of time before the EU forms an EU coast guard and defence force. They really should also adopt Australia's operation sovereign borders; it would be popular, and shore up support for the EU, improve safety, reduce tension, improve living conditions and make people happier.
Seriously ? The only credible European military would include Russia and Germany. As for France they can bring on board only their experience with White Flags.
What language would such a coast guard and defence force use to communicate? Do you think individual nations will completely surrender control of their armed forces to a novice EU Corps? Germany wants it because it can't have a large military of its own.
It is a bit pity though that no one followed up on this by asking wether he thinks this could mean some kind of de-coupling in between the US and the EU. There was talk about it, but on another pa
Germany has always been a super power. Just since 1945 an occupied and oppressed nation that cannot be held indefinitely down.
What makes a country powerful is the people; The US was powerful because of the industrial labour force. They were so trampled on for so long, their lives were exhausted on making very few ridiculously super rich. Germany is on the rice because of it's peoples ingenuity and sense of self respect; they will not allow it's working conditions to be pilfered by the Corporate Class!
They have been influential, no doubt; but not a superpower, and they won't be unless EU countries continue to let them dominate the EU.
The four largest national budgets in the World are the US, China, Japan and Germany. Germany is the only one with a budget surplus. If Washington forces BP to sell its 20% share in Rosneft, probably Wintershall will buy that share, as it has proven to be a reliable partner. Also ENI and Total could be reliable partners of Rosneft. Rosneft is the largest taxpayer in Russia, so there are more reasons for American sanctions against British Petroleum (BP) than against European companies building Nord Stream 2. Will Boris Johnson follow suit and force BP to sell its share in Rosneft?
How relevant is the UK today? The only news we are hearing from the UK today is all about the latest virus that has engulfed the UK!
They are knavish.
Please don't judge a people by its government. There any many of us in the UK that would prefer good relationships with russia than many western europe countries and certainly the EU. I can see a future (once Whitehall loses its obsession with the Muh Russia bogeyman narrative) where Britain and Russia actually become a guiding force in Europe.
