Russia Threatens Nuclear War To Drive NATO Out Of Baltics

Russia has threatened to use nuclear force against the United States and its allies if NATO moves more forces into the Baltic states or if attempts are made to return Crimea to Ukraine.

A meeting that took place behind closed doors between intelligence figures in the town of Torgau, Saxony (Germany) last month, reportedly revealed that the Russian President Vladimir Putin will view any attempt from NATO’s side to return Crimea to Ukraine or to step up its presence in the Baltics as declaration of war and threatened a “spectrum of responses from nuclear to non-military” to retain his control in the region.

According to notes seen by The Times and made by the US party at the Elbe Group meeting, Putin is also planning imminent “destabilizing actions” in the Baltic states in order to withstand NATO’s promise to defend pro-Western countries from Russian expansionism.

According to the notes, it would most likely be “destabilizing actions that would be even harder to trace back to Russia than those of eastern Ukraine,” and added that “the same conditions that existed in Ukraine and caused Russia to take action there” exist in the three Baltic states (Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia), where a large percentage of people regard themselves as ethically Russian.

Such disturbances could include cyberattacks and triggering local ethnic tensions in all three countries, which was done in Crimea by the Kremlin last year. The notes also suggest Russia would avoid “injections of troops and heavy weapons in favor of other tools.”

A year after annexing the Crimea peninsula, Putin admitted in an interview aired on March 15 that he ordered the Russian troops to execute a well-planned operation to take over Crimea. Furthermore, Putin admitted that “we were ready to do this” when asked about his willingness to use Russia’s nuclear forces.

“The United States should understand it would also be at risk”

The notes also said that Russia’s security experts tend to believe that the US wants to destroy their country at any cost. “In this type of scenario, the United States should also understand it would also be at risk,” the document said.

The Kremlin also believes that “Ukraine could be a launching point” to unleash fascist and Islamic extremist groups against Russia. The “fight for resources in the Arctic” was another Russia’s concern.

It was reported just two days ago that Russia has made a number of moves in the Arctic, including ordering its troops to increase presence in the region, carrying out military drills and developing Arctic rescue robots.

The Elbe Group forum was established to improve mutual understanding between the two countries’ military and intelligence experts, and has already met six times over the past five years.

According to the Russian delegation’s leader and the former minister of the interior, Anatoly Kulikov, the party was briefed by both the Russian president and Sergei Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister.

However, both delegations agreed that there was a high possibility of an accidental conflict between Russia and the West in eastern Europe, which could ultimately lead to “unintended escalation” and destructive consequences for the world, hinting at the possibility of World War 3.

Russia: “This is the ongoing hysteria to demonize us”

However, Dmitry Peskov, Putin’s press secretary, has recently described reports that the Kremlin is threatening to use its nuclear forces as “a classic example of Russia’s demonization.”

“This is a classic example of the ongoing hysteria to demonize our country. In fact, they blow the situation out of proportion in informational terms themselves, and they are doing this not based on any particular information, and then they themselves fear what they have written,” Peskov told reporters on Thursday.

“These reports can’t be taken seriously,” he added.

“Russia has never threatened to use nuclear forces over the events in Crimea, and those who allege this have apparently failed to familiarize themselves with Putin’s remarks in the recent film titled ‘Crimea. Returning Home’”, Peskov said.

On March 9, the United States transferred over 120 heavy military equipment to the Baltic states in order to prevent Russian aggression and not let Putin advance further into Europe. And according to NATO’s Secretary-General, Russian military flights close to the Baltic states’ borders were intercepted more than 400 times last year.

On March 6, NATO forces conducted military drills in Latvia, which included training to spot enemy positions, calling in indirect fire support, battlefield first aid as well as tactic training with their Latvian partners.

NATO forces conducted around 200 military drills in 2014, with the alliance’s General Secretary Jens Stoltenberg having promised that such exercises would continue. Furthermore, a spokesman for the US Embassy in Poland, confirmed that the deployment of US troops in Poland and the Baltics has been extended through 2015.

Russian annexation of Crimea in March last year triggered the worst geopolitical conflict with the West since the Cold War. The tensions have further escalated during the Russian aggression in eastern Ukraine that’s killed over 6,000 people over the past year and counting. Despite the cease-fire agreement reached in Minsk on February 12, the Obama’s administration is still considering arming Ukrainian forces.

  • Joe (Semper Fi) USMC

    And, could do the same thing to Russia if we wanted to. We just know that Russia would go nuclear out of fear. Putin aka puddin, just set it to where Russia could use nukes as a first strike capability to drive Nato off its doorstep, because they can’t do it with conventional weapons. Also, Putin looks like a Stalin with little man syndrome because he is a tiny little man, and a GIANT sissy. He only pushes around those he knows he can crush. He wouldn’t mess with a Nation that can defend itself. SISSY!!!!!

  • Joe (Semper Fi) USMC

    I disagree, America, if went to war with Russia, would also be at war with China, which in turn, would prevent China ever getting paid back for loans to America, thus freeing funds for America to fight. America, unleashed cannot be matched with its industrial capacity and on a war footing would be quite impressive. America cannot be beat militarily against China and Russia together. Thats not even including NATO getting involved. Pipe Dream!

    I agree with that. I really think the West wants to get along with Russia. Russia is an important country. But Putin needs to stop the rants about the “evil” West. Western democracies have always really only tried to make the whole world a better & safer place for all people. Making the Russian people paranoid & hating on Westerners is wrong. As I have said many times before; American’s don’t hate the Russian people, only the leadership.

    Comrade, I don’t hate Russia. But that quote by its self is Incorrect. At best Russia can put 1200 old tanks and 1.5 million of only 880,000 are fit! The US army not NATO, just the active duty army, can place 1.2 million combat troops with 4 million veterans in actual reserve. The question should be asked why would anyone like to take the Russian federation? Russians don’t want to live there why would we? Oil,,, no Russia has 10-20 years of oil. so vast frozen nonetheless. I have been to Russia, and I have Russian friends. If Russia pulled a 1939 on NATO. Not just the USA but all 84 allies will starve Russia and pound that bears a$$ like a [email protected] p0rno. it’s not the USA it’s every one who looks at Russia.I already cover WMDs I will say this the USA will not ever attack Russia first.

    The thing man-child Putin has overlooked is what the global interdependence countries really have when it comes to control…..

    Lest look at it this way….

    If Mr man-child Putin will not Play ball and play nice….

    Then global interdependence countries can turn the off your credit cards or we can make sure your German cars don’t get parts and don’t work just like your Lada never has worked LOL or we can turn off the Internet … Or your apple phones switch off or the swift system doesn’t work etc etc

    He can play with his nukes all he likes (don’t forget NATO has together more nukes then he does to play with ) ….. If he presses that button then Russians will need to learn a VERY different lifestyle go back too their ….. Nomadic Mongolian roots probably LOL

    I see Putin is now running to China like the little Mongolian boy he is with his cap in one hand and a beggar’s tin-cup in the other …

    Please please Mr C….=China give me some little money for food so I can feed my rotting nation.

    I have no money, my RUBLE’S are worthless rubble because I had some stupid grandiose paranoia and megalomaniac ideas, about taking over Ukraine and not following international law no one will play with me anymore …. LOL

    What a BIG MAN the man-child boy Putin is now LOL

    Lets look at Putins RuSSia and how it trying to take undercover control and run a divide and conquer tactic in the west..

    Mr. Putin has cultivated in Europe. Parties like fare right party s like Jobbik in Hungary and the Northern League in Italy see Mr. Putin as a bulwark against a tide of Western liberalism and the EU system.,

    But the appeal is more than ideological.

    In France, the leader of the far-right National Front, Marine Le Pen, recently acknowledged that her party had received a loan for 9 million euros, or about $11 million, from a Kremlin-linked bank.

    In the middle of 2011, Bulgaria’s prime minister, Boiko Borisov, granted usa Chevron a permit to explore for shale gas. Almost immediately, a well-organized campaign emerged to kill shale exploration in the contrey started before it began, fueled in part by loyalists for Ataka, one of several far-right parties in Bulgaria all well known good buddy’s of Putin…

    Why you ask well in Bulgaria start using its shale gas it will not need Russian gas shale.

    Bulgaria get today about 90% of its gas from Russia..and this is why Putin is become very good friends with neonazis and fare right party’s in EU too stop any fracking gas exploration…

    The anti-fracking anti shale gas movement in Bulgaria became so broad that in January 2012, Bulgarian Parliament banned not only the extraction of shale gas, but even exploration that would quantify the country’s reserves.

    This is why Putinis funding fare right party’s in the west like funding La Pen in France and the Greek far right party well know noenazi party Golden Dawn in Athens..

    The cherman of the fare right Ataka party in Bulgarias Mr. Siderov has undeniably close ties to the Kremlin. He kicked off his most recent political campaign in Moscow, where he was receiving the Fatherland Star medal for promoting what Putin calls closer relations between Russia and Bulgaria.

    LETS LOOK AT PUTIN ON THE HOME FRONT…

    One of the biggest advisory to Putin and the Kremlin is Alexander Dugin ..

    Who is this Alexander Dugin ??

    Well an old saying is one is the companion you hold and the friends you have…

    Russian fascist Aleksandr Dugin’s dreams of a RuSSian dictatorship and he is getting it with his good friend and leader Mr Putin..

    look at the link
    Anti-Semite and former leader of Ku Klux Klan David Duke is a very good friend of Dugins …..

    Putins Aide Alexander Dugin Visits neonazis in Romania, While the Far Right Forms an International Alliance

    revolution-news.com/putins-aide-visits-neo-nazis-romania-far-right-forms-international-alliance/

    neonazi forces are expanding their cross-border alliances in Europe, and far right political parties from EU member countries are reviving their efforts to unite under a so-called “Alliance of Patriots.”

    This is happening while Putin’s ideological prophet Aleksandr Dughin (one of Putins top aides) visits fascists in Eastern Europe in an attempt to build a base to resurrect Russian imperialism. Dughin has also been in recent communication with Nikolaos Michaloliakos of the Greek far right party Golden Dawn.

    Dugin’s career, has bean moving from his expulsion from the Moscow Aviation Institute for involvement in protonazi mystical circles in the early 1980s,to now being one of RuSSias top advisory to Putin..

    Dugin’s political and geopolitical ideology of Eurasianism and his continues maniac attempts of Repeating the ideas of oldnazi theorists Karl Haushofer, Rudolf Hess, Carl Schmitt, and Arthur Moeller van den Bruck puts the neonazi RuSSian Alexander Dugin and Putin in a very special place of hypocritical looniebins …

    Alexander Dugin says “””What Russia needs, says Dugin, is a “genuine, true, radically revolutionary and consistent, fascist fascism.”

    Dugins also says , “Liberalism, is an absolute evil.

    Only a global crusade against the U.S., the West, globalization, and their political-ideological expression, liberalism, is capable of becoming an adequate response. . .. The American empire liber must be destroyed.”””

    Dugin says that about his Euresia zone

    This “Empire of the End” is marked by the “dialectical triad” which combines “Third Rome — Third Reich — Third International.” All the expectations of historic Russian messianic delusions, combined with the Joachimite aims of neonazism and Soviet Bolshevism, purportedly find their highest expression in this new ideology, according to Dugin.

    Now who really has neonazis in power that is the question and Alexander Dugin is def, a neonazis high up the power tree of Russian yes he is in fact the architect of Putin’s now Eurasia Union ..

    look at the link
    anton-shekhovtsov.blogspot.com/2014/02/russian-fascist-aleksandr-dugin-is.html

    Russian fascism – whether disguised as neo-Eurasianism or anything else -should be stopped, and the free nations of Europe must help Ukrainians to preserve their democracy.

    Putin is against what he clams to be neonazis in Ukraine, but he loves his neonazis in Russia like Alexander Dugin,,

    It’s therefore more than a tad ironic that Russian President Vladimir Putin, while terribly concerned about Ukraine’s made-up “neonazi threat,” couldn’t care less about his own very real fascist thug problem at home.

  • Alexander

    I’ve been reading about Paul Roberts. His conspiracy theories are laughable at best:

    9/11, Paul Roberts: “He has reported findings who conclude there is a large energy deficit in the official account of the collapse of the three WTC buildings. He says that this deficit remains unexplained.”

    So, now in addition to making statements about foreign policy, for which he has neither the education, nor the experience, now he’s an “expert” in physics and construction engineering? Lol

  • Alexander

    “Washington promised Gorbachev that NATO…”

    And how’d Roberts know that? He was working at GU at the time! Note that he doesn’t say who has made the “promise”, therefore there’s no way to verify it. That’s a typical Russian propaganda masterpiece!

  • Alexander

    You lied before but at least you tried to cover up your lies, Russian paid troll. That’s another one of your bs posts.

    Dutch: “(written by dr.Paul Craig Roberts, former assistant sec. of State under Reagan):”

    Paul Roberts, known for his pro-Russian propaganda, has never been “assistant secretary of state”. What’s more – his stunt in the U.S. government ended in 1982, years before the alleged “promise”. Your inability to support your own statement with ANY evidence from high ranking statesman at the time only proves your lies, Russian paid troll…

  • Alexander

    Your “reply” doesn’t support your previous statement, Russian paid troll. So, if your reply is “just ONE of many, many sources”, you shouldn’t have a problem supplying any credible evidence, and by that I the lies of an author promoting his own book, should you? When did Gorbachev or Baker or ANY other Russian or U.S. official ever admitted about such a promise – that NATO won’t expand further?

    The Russian propaganda must be getting really desperate – now your only “evidence” doesn’t come from the politicians making the foreign policy but the writers like James Goldeier, who get pay for their books. LOL

  • Dutch

    Actually, here is one more. (written by dr.Paul Craig Roberts, former assistant sec. of State under Reagan):

    Iran should ask former Soviet president Gorbachev what Washington’s word is worth. In exchange for Gorbachev’s agreement to the reunification of Germany, Washington promised Gorbachev that NATO would not move one inch to the East and promptly took NATO to Russia’s border and is now working to incorporate former parts of the Russian empire into NATO.

  • Ernest Allen

    a) Russia’s been supplying arms before, during, and after the conflict.

    b) Russian bombs and artillery shells are kill Ukrainians, Georgians, and Moldovans.

    c) Soviet Russia destroyed far more of Germany than the US ever did of Japan. And it’s you Russians today who threatening nuclear war to wipe out Western liberal democracies. http://www.valuewalk.com/2015/04/russia-threatens-nuclear-war/

    e) The only Europeans who come to Russia “to see the truth” are right-wing crazies and neo Nazis. That is the true Russia – backward, angry, racist, and reactionary. http://tvrain.ru/articles/nazi_spb-384336/

    “According to James Goldgeier, author of Not Whether But When, the
    definitive history of NATO expansion, Baker promised Soviet leader
    Mikhail Gorbachev that if the Soviets allowed Germany to reunify,
    NATO—the U.S.-led Western military alliance that took form after World
    War II—would not expand “one inch” further east, not even into the
    former East Germany itself.”

    So, I’m supposed to believe an “author” who hasn’t even been a direct witness to an imaginary promise? lol

    But neither Baker nor Gorbachev has confirmed this lie. Therefore, Goldgeier’s story about a promise that NATO won’t expand is a cheap attempt to promote his book.

  • Joseph Exchequer Ohmann

    Yes you did have an attention problem in my class, But dear billy you can sk me questions and seek my help when you need it.

  • Dutch

    Ok, here is just one of many:
    It’s true that the Obama administration has withdrawn troops from Iraq and is withdrawing them from Afghanistan. But from where Putin sits, American power hardly seems in retreat. From his perspective, in fact, the reverse is likely much closer to the truth.
    Under Ronald Reagan, the frontier of American power in Europe was Berlin. Then, in February 1990, as East Germany began wobbling, Secretary of State James Baker journeyed to Moscow to discuss German unification. According to James Goldgeier, author of Not Whether But When, the definitive history of NATO expansion, Baker promised Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev that if the Soviets allowed Germany to reunify, NATO—the U.S.-led Western military alliance that took form after World War II—would not expand “one inch” further east, not even into the former East Germany itself. But as the year progressed, the White House developed different ideas, and by the fall it was clear that a unified Germany would enter NATO, no matter what the Russians thought.
    The idea of admitting other Eastern European countries into NATO, however, was still considered recklessly provocative toward Russia. The New York Times editorial board and its star foreign-affairs columnist, Thomas Friedman, strongly opposed the idea. The eminent Cold War historian John Lewis Gaddis wrote that, “[H]istorians—normally so contentious—are in uncharacteristic agreement: with remarkably few exceptions, they see NATO enlargement as ill conceived, ill-timed, and above all ill-suited to the realities of the post-Cold War world.” George H.W. Bush’s national security advisor, Brent Scowcroft, was skeptical of the idea, as was Bill Clinton’s defense secretary, William Perry….
    By 1997, it was clear Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic would enter the alliance. In 2004, NATO admitted another seven former Soviet bloc countries, three of which—Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia—had been part of the USSR. In 2009, Croatia and Albania joined the club. Six former Soviet republics—Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova, Kazakhstan, Armenia, and Azerbaijan—now link their militaries to NATO’s via the “Partnership for Peace” program. All five former Soviet republics in Central Asia—Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan—provide NATO countries with some basing, transit, refueling, or overflight rights for use in the Afghan war.
    From Putin’s perspective, in other words, the United States hardly looks in retreat. To the contrary, the post-Cold War period has brought one long march by America and its allies closer and closer to the border of Russia itself. But there was no reason to believe that Russia—which under Putin has been regaining its confidence on the world stage—would go on contracting forever. And by 2008, when Russia sent troops into parts of Georgia, it was already clear that NATO’s expansion onto former Soviet soil had come to a halt.

  • stephen koludrovic

    You are wrong. It has everything to do with both Nato and the EU.
    Nato was founded as a defensive alliance to counter ant threat that might come from Russia, it was not created to open up secret prisons for the CIA to torture people from other foreign countries, The EU is very demanding in its so-called laws about the human rights of people, and how prisoner should be treated. waterboarding is a basic denial of this right which the EU seems to have closed its eyes on.

  • Metal_Maniac669

    That literally has nothing to do with NATO or the EU. Members of those organizations are still free to dictate their own foreign policy and diplomacy independently of one another. If Poland and Romania have CIA facilities on their lands then it’s because of an agreement they made with the US specifically.

    They chose to lease the land to the CIA and they chose to accept the payment in return for doing so.

    Take the Czech Republic for example, it’s a member of both NATO and the EU yet they just barred the US ambassador from Prague castle.

  • margor

    Putin can rattle his sword without fear of the US given our lack of funding and backbone with regard to any conflict at this time. If we had Pres Regan in office we’d be doing far more than we are now. The main thing is to get EUROPE to WAKE UP and smell the roses. Russia is a threat to it’s Eastern border neighbors who lean toward the WEST and they can and must be supported. It’s not up to the US to deal with said threat, rather only to serve as BACKUP should an actual conflict arise. EUROPE SHOULD DEAL WITH RUSSIA ITSELF as a UNIFIED FRONT (if they can ever agree on anything other than sucking the US dry of $$$ for aid). PEACE!

    12 Baltic Nations, eh? The Balts never joined the USSR, they were occupied and illegally annexed as a result of the Molotov-Rippentrop Pact. Since they are independent countries, they do get a chance to decide their foreign policy: not some azz-hat in the Kremlin.

    If you do not like it, perhaps your Kremlin should stop invading independent countries and murdering its people.

    No, wait, the Soviet Kremlin did not order the murder of the Balts: they Liberated them from their lives!

    You are the one who is attempting to express knowledge in opposition to obvious facts. It is people like you who are the reason there is a bible, you have no answer but defamation, lies, and ignorance. If you want war so badly go tot he front lines and put you life where your mouth is. John 8:44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

Time to lable label Russia as a “state sponsor of terror” for the FSB is doing to the Crimean Tartars, the Kharkiv bombings, Mariupol shelling, providing weapons to Assad who indiscriminately bombs his own people with barrel bombs.

    Ivan,
    In that case, I recommend a NEW LINE of WORK for you.
    Become a russian commentator!
    You MIGHT be good at THAT!

  • RushisWRONG

    Ivan,
    Maybe the REAL QUESTION HERE IS EVEN MORE SIMPLE!…..
    WHY DOES russia FEEL THAT THEY HAVE TO WAR WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD?!
    Are you guys back to that old stalinist / khrushevian “we will bury you” stage in your country’s pathetic “un-development”?
    Things not going so well in your novo-soviet union?
    Can’t keep your dissidents ALIVE?
    And the russian soldiers that you now admit are actually fighting (and DYING) in the Ukraine war that russia NEEDS to win, but so far HASN’T, is THAT bothering you?
    And the SANCTIONS you now pay for from your “adventure” in Ukraine!
    Tired of your roubles being worth about as much as POCKET LINT?
    Maybe if “pootie” takes off his shirt and goes horseback riding, THAT will RE- INSPIRE the people of russia to take NEW NOTICE of his LOFTY “LEADERSHIP”!!
    All it does for the rest of the world is to make russia as a country look like a pathetic,
    small-minded populace, easily mesmerized by what WE SEE as superficial shows of power.
    If its your kgb “leaders” goal to turn russia into a second hermit nation like north korea, then you’ve got the “perfect” person for the job!
    You guy’s are already REGRESSING NICLELY !!!!!

  • RushisWRONG

WAKE UP AND QUIT JUDGEING PEOPLE THAT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ACTIONS OF OTHERS just because they are from the same country. It’s like saying you had somethin to do with the terrorist attack in that school. Do you remember? Do you understand? If so, I am awaiting your apology. If not, either get someone that can properly understand written English or drop dead. If your political leaders are so good to your citizens why are so many starving and live so poorly and why are they constantly saying sanctions are not hurting and threatening nuclear war all the time? The US does NOT do that. Get your facts straight and quit confusing facts with loyalty to the motherland.

  • midnighteye

    There is no doubt the war against the Taliban was perfectly well justified and inevitable, 9/11 was the cause of it, not an excuse for a war. What does Afghanistan have that anyone else wants? Answer – nothing!
    The war against Iraq was an appalling strategic mistake that freed Iran to become the world-wide monster that it is today, as mistake that no real statesman throughout history would have made. I never said Bush was a genius, but I must remind you that the invasion of Iraq was supported overwhelmingly by both sides of Congress, including the present Secretary of State of the United States. Putin’s immediate objective seems to be to destroy NATO, after which he will be free to do much as he wishes and he sees Obama’s perennial retreating and apologizing as the ideal opportunity to do so. Let me rephrase my original message, just for you.
    If J.F. Kennedy was president today, Putin would be a far less dangerous adventurer.
    Unlike you, I do not see everything in a Left-Right context and perhaps because of this I can recognize Obama for the dangerous, communist-raised Islam leaning weakling that he is (No? Then read his book). Despite the mistake of invading Iraq, it could have had a reasonable outcome but Obama threw it away in order to fulfill his purely political promise to get out of there completely, now we see a hugely emboldened Iran which he is also legitimizing in its quest for nuclear weapons which it will use when it has them and he is still toying with the idea of making the same mistake with Afghanistan. Obama will go down in history as the biggest mistake the U.S. electorate ever made, twice. My only consolation is that I did not make it, even once.

    Why does Russia keep touting its nuclear capabilities? Do they remember MADD? It doesn’t matter who launches first, everyone loses. Russia has more territory, but there are far more weapons on NATO’s side. So, it is really just a waste of breathe unless you want an excuse to build more weapons (again, why?). The only positive I can see here is “WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Energy will take over the management of a proposed uranium-enrichment plant in southern Ohio in order to continue the project, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said yesterday.” we in Ohio get more jobs and investment. Three cheers for more enriched uranium! (I am being sarcastic, I’ll settle for a few less jobs, and a lot less nuclear saber rattling).

    Do not forget that JAPAN STARTED THE WAR. If there had not been an attack on Pearl Harbor, the atomic bombs would never have been dropped on Japan. Many more lives would have been lost if we had to invade Japan. It is also interesting to note that Russia did not declare war on Japan until AFTER the USA dropped the atomic bomb.

  • shawnee

    Sounds to me that a swaggering bully like Russia, making comments and threats such as this, is reason enough to PROTECT the rights of the Baltics. Putin is off his rocker and admittedly a bully. Wise up Russian trolls – this is not the way to get the respect you so desperately crave. A rich country like Russia has a history of needing to suck off countries around it to exist. Sick; can’t you figure out yet how little respect he has for your people and their abilities by backing this ‘leech program’ he and his communists have turned to over and over in your past?

    Russia’s existance is at stake will backfire on them too. The threats mentioned are created only by paparazies
    like you and the N.Korean fat boy , basically speaking both of you arr a bunch of idiots .

  • elswyr

    Russia is economically, politically, culturally and militarily weaker
    than the west. Nukes are Russia’s only trump card inherited from the
    soviet empire.
    Nuclear threats are a sign of weakness, not strength.
    Think about: If Putin threatens us with nukes right off the bat, what
    else is there he can threaten us with?

    Putin bluffs. It’s his
    only trump card and he’s not going to play it (same as North Korea)
    because when he does, there is nothing else he can threaten us with. Not
    to mention mututal nuclear obliteration. He’s not that dumb.

  • geets

    While Russia runs her mouth the west has been gearing up to repel and embarrass Pootin if he dares come out of his cave..
    Little green men wont work again in the baltics and Russia will cease to exist if they decide to go nuclear, Russia cant even to begin to estimate how much reach and power the US has Russia really does not want to go there, even if the nuked the US to ash the US will not only destroy Russia’s population with MAD but will strategically take over Siberia for western refugees to begin again..

Russian pride and political nonsense is causing this. the world would be better if russia would quit trying to expand. IF things were so wonderful in the USSR, people would not have wanted out.you dont see any Americans flocking to Russia because they can make a better living. How about we kick all the hockey and tennis players that have made millions here OUT. On the other hand. dont you find it ridiculous that the US and Russia travel and work together in space?

    The West has NO INTEREST in CONQUERING russia or its 9 TIME ZONES (more than any country on earth)! We also respect the right’s of russians to exist, EXCEPT when its BY FORCE OF ARMS and in country’s that DON”T WANT TO BE russian! Or don’t want to be russian any more!
    The concept of ‘gun-barrel diplomacy” went out (we THOUGHT) when hitler’s death ended World War II and when soviet russia died under gorbachov.
    It appears that CIVILIZED SOCIETY was wrong… we hadn’t thought that ANY modern political structure would ever be foolish enough to confuse power with strength and brute conquest with rightful self-determination!
    But novo-soviet russia, you make it plain that YOU STILL BELIEVE THAT MIGHT MAKES RIGHT~ and the end, even if its a NUCLEAR ONE, justifies the means….

Those big land based missles that he parades around DO RESEMBLE the ULTIMATE phallic symbol don’t they “poot-man”!?
    These INSANE THREATS make you wonder… Is there ANY territory or political goal that this grandstanding arrogant tyrant WON’T incinerate the earth for?!
    He needs his expressionless face sharing the cover of Time Magazine with that of hitler, with the header: “HISTORY’S GREATEST MADMEN”!
    Maybe the next best Time Magazine cover photo would be that of “pootie” sharing the space with his newest arch-ally, north korea’s kim dumb stoopid! The header here, could read : “DUMB and DUMBER TO”!
    I say this ONLY because the”poot’s” nuclear threats are sounding more and more like the hollow rants of the hermit king’s mostly amusing warnings.

Now, lets try to bring Russian military to US borders and do a regime change in Canada and Mexico in favor of Russia, then send more military there and call America an aggressor…

    from Sixpack: Get a grip on you propaganda. You are literally lying. DO YOU REALLY WANT TO SEE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE DIE? Sounds like you do to me.

    Russia is not the aggressor here…the WEST is.It would probably be hundreds of millions, not thousands. However, some things are more important than living. I don’t want to see people die and I don’t care if you think that I do.

    My respones: If Russia can not respect where the west has taken a stand then maybe they want to see hundreds of million die. If the west will not stand strong, then when where will Russia’s push back end? I would like to suggest that it will only end where and when the west stands strong. Russia’s recent behavior seems to be consistent with that of a bully. The Baltic’s inclusion with NATO was done a long time ago. It should just be left alone.

    If the west sends more forces there then Russia will react in undesirable ways? What guarantee is there that Russia will behave if the west does not send more forces there? Seems to me like it is in NATO’s best interest, or maybe just the Baltic’s, if the west strengthens it’s forces there.

    If we reverse this situation, we could go back to the days of the Cuban Missile Crisis, Granada, or the Nicaraguan civil war. The US dealt with the situations as they were happening. Several Communist or Pro-Russian entities failed to take hold. However, Cuba remained Communist.

    Russia’s entrance into Ukraine was accomplished by it and the west ignoring a treaty that that was signed in the 90’s.

    What they have accomplished and seem to want to accomplish entails ignoring treaties or agreements. For whatever reason, Russia currently wants to do, what it want to do, when it wants to do it. That shouldn’t be allowed with any country. Putin is on the march because the US currently has a weak president. Putin wants to have a large sphere of influence. I am becoming more convince that he wants to go back to the glory days of the Soviet Union. They were days of limited freedom and mass purging. The Nazis weren’t the only ones to kill Russians, Stalin did too.

    By the way, what is my propaganda? Is it that one country spending several times that of another country on it’s military should have a better one? That just seems like common sense to me.

    What am I lying about? That Obama is a weak president? That Netanyahu is a strong president? I really wish that we had one more like him.

  • TIMTOM

    Russia is worse then North Korea…a true evil nation by any standard !!!

    Why you ask ??

    Well in North Korea the People give there support to the regime because they don’t have any contact with the outside world and therefor have no access to information and only get the regimes so called truth from the regimes propaganda spin doctors..

    But in RuSSia all the people have access to information from anywhere they wish at any time they wish… But still they belive and support the evil of the regime of Putin…

    Russians mindset is all about what they thinks makes them as a nation look big and if that means they need to support evil regimes like Putin’s Russia then that is what they do freely and willingly …

    Look at it this way…

    Today in Russia ALL THE PEOPLE Yes all of them…. have access to more information within a minute at any time day or night then you will find in ALL OF THE WORLDS libraries all put together…

    And how do they have that you ask??

    Well its called the internet and all you need is a Phone to accesses it… And a phone is something ALL RUSSIANS HAVE with them 24 hours of every day 365 days of every year…

    … BUT THAT IS NOT THE CASE in North Korea for North Koreans ..most of them dont even have a phone in their homes and free accsess to internet in North Korea is not an option …

    RuSSia is a nation full of freewill brainwashed evil people called Russians…

    The Putin apologist will say that WE ARE ALL really missing the point Most of this Russians don’t read English and get only the Russian info and they can somewhat be excused for their fanatic attitudes..

    But I say to the Putin apologist …. That they can believe it or not the biggest support for Putins evil regime are in the big citys and and most of them read English and understand English websites they also have accesses to the internet when ever they want ..

    Just look at the support Putin has with Russians living in the west take a look at western media blogs and comments done be Russians living outside of Russia and from 2nd and 3rd generation Russians that in most cases never has even been to Russia and lived in the west all their lives THEY ARE THE BIGGEST supporters of Putin ..

    Russians have a mentality like fanatic religious Muslims.. NO MATTER where they live or where they was born they are fanatical about staying Muslim and promoting their fanatical action of changing the nation they are living into a stat they controll and work hard to implement that end game that is to take over of any land and nation they can..

    Just like most fanatics being Russian for Russians and promoting and exporting their culture,language and dominance with Russafacation of other nations is almost a religion for them ..and they have done it for centuries

    This has to do with Russian mentality ..and how Russians see things..\

    AND THEY SEE THINGS LIKE THIS

    1. Ukraine belongs to Moscow and Russia and so does the Baltic stats and Poland along with all other Slavic lands ..

    2. Ukrainian’s are under Russians in the pecking order just like all other Slavic nations and anyone else for that mater are and they must all understand their place in the world …

    3 Any Ukrainian that say otherwise is a noenazis supporter and must be put in their place..

    4 If they don’t understand their place in the world Russia will make them understand by any main’s necessary..

    You need to read more carefully, Every day NATO claims that they heard a threat, but you’ve never seen an interview with Putin where he threatened anyone, never heard a news conference where Russia stated an intention to blast anyone into nuclear dust or even heard from a reliable neutral source that they had been threatened with nuclear annihilation. You haven’t seen or heard anything like that because it hasn’t happened.
    It’s all deliberate misinterpretation, innuendo and sometimes downright lies. Months ago Putin was talking with a school class (the interview was still on YouTube the last time I checked) and some of the kids expressed fear that the US was going to attack them. After all, America was famous for attacking everyone. Putin assured them that they were safe because Russia is a nuclear power. The next day the America media screamed “Putin threatens nuclear war!”. He didn’t.
    Last month NATO ran out of scare stories so they brought up an unsubstantiated article in a Dutch newspaper that claimed the Russian Ambassador had “hinted” that Russia would target Danish ships if Denmark joined in a radar project and threatened Russia. By the end of the day, the fact that the story was unsubstantiated, un-witnessed and only said something vague about a “hint” was dropped from the media and every outlet screamed “Russia threatens the Dutch with Nuclear War”. They didn’t.
    This time we have an incredible fantasy about some “notes” from an unknown person attending a “secret meeting” in “secret place” with no mention of who was at the meeting – and another ridiculous claim that Russia is planning a nuclear war.
    Feel free to prove me wrong by posting any link to Putin or any of his staff threatening anyone with nuclear war – not a link to NATO claiming it, a link to them doing it.
    I’ll be an old man before you find one.

    Russia is mad. The Russian state has literally zero chance of defeating
    the NATO alliance. All this talk about nuclear attacks is ridiculous.
    Russia would be obliterated, quite literally “removed from the face of
    the earth” by 3 dozen (many nuclear armed) nations instantly. Any strike
    on one, is considered a strike on them all. Putin has no option other
    than false threats, as to follow through with them would be absolute
    suicide.

  • TIMTOM

    United States as a nation began with the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776 – as well as a century and a half earlier, when a group of English Puritans landed on Plymouth Rock in 1620.

    All nations have a story to tell how they came into being. Some are rooted in ancient history while others, including numerous new nations that arose on the ruins of European colonial expansion, tie their emergence to more recent events. But whether mythical or historical, those origins are always connected to the land those nations inhabit.

    Not so Russia. It may be the only major nation to locate its origins in a foreign country. Every Russian school kid learns that his country’s history began on the banks of the Dnipro, in Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine.

    It is as if Americans had decided to trace their history back in the time of William the Conqueror or the War of the Roses.

    This may seem like a minor thing, but it explains a great deal in the average Russian’s attitude toward Ukrainians. If Russia is a direct descendant of historic Kyivan Rus, how can another nation equally trace its origins to it – a nation, moreover, still occupying the same territory?

    Vladimir Putin recently declared that Ukrainians and Russians are “one folk” – meaning, of course, that Ukrainians are Russian. An extraordinary number of his countrymen share this belief. Imagine a prime minister of the United Kingdom insisting that Americans are not a nation but merely Brits with funny accents. But it is even more ridiculous than that: it’s as though the Italian president would lay claim on Spain – or one of Spain’s former colonies in Latin America – asserting that the Spanish language is a bastardized form of Italian.

    Russia’s attitude to Ukraine and things Ukrainian reflects deeply ingrained imperial complexes, revealing that, while the Soviet Empire collapsed in 1991, the Russian Empire still lingers in the minds of the citizens of the Russian Federation. And, one of the strangest things this past year has been the number people with Ukrainian surnames, many of them also born in Ukraine but now living in Russia, who spew hatred for their native land.

    What we know today to be Russians are nothing more than Finnish nomadic tribes that assimilated with the Mongolian horde in the 1200 They are not Slavic people like Ukrainians or Polish people even if they claim to be, and therefore have no real claim to Slavic lands or history .. But descendants from finish nomadic tribes that assimilated with the Mongolian.

    The Russians brainwashed and you just continue to brainwash everyone, when they
    assert that Kyivan Rus was the cradle of three sibling nations – Russians, Ukrainians and Belarus; and that because the Russians are “older brothers”, they have the right to the legacy of Kyivan Rus. To this day, Russian historians and officials make use of this woeful lie, which is repeated by Putin in his propaganda today .

    Here are the facts:

    At the time of the Kyivan Empire there was no mention of a Moscow nation in history Russia was not a part of history before 1721 when it was proclaimed be peter the grate It is well known that Moscow was created in 1277 as a subservient vassal region or ‘ulus’ to the Golden Horde, established by the Khan Mengu-Timur. By that time, Ukrainians city of Kiev and the Ukrainians peoples the Kyivan Rus had existed for more than 300 years.

    There are no indications of any connection of Ukrainians peoples the Kyivan Rus with the Finnish ethnic groups in the land of ‘Moksel’ what today we know as Russia or the later of the Moscow principality with the Principality of Kyivan Rus up until the XVI century. At the time when the Ukrainians peoples (Kyivan Rus ) had officially accepted Christianity, the Finn tribes in ‘Moksel’ today’s Russia was stilL living in a semi-primitive nomadic state.

    How can anyone speak of ‘an older brother’ when that ‘older brother’ did not first appear until centuries after Rus-Ukrainians? He has no moral right to call himself an ‘older brother’, nor to dictate how people are to live, nor to force his culture, language, and world views.

    Russians er nothing more then Mongolians with Down Syndrome thinking they are from Kiev Russ and Slavic background when the DNA study of today’s so called Russians shows that the historical facts are thay they are Mongoloid / Finno-Ugric descendents and NOT Slavic…

    The DNA evidence proves that Russians with out a doubt are Mongoloid / Finno-Ugric descendents ..

    1. Russians are not Slavic.

    2. Russians are Mongolians / Finno-Ugric

    3. Russians are lying about where they come from and how they really are

    4.The DNA study’s and results er inn LOL You can’t change facts, what we call today Russians are Finno-Ugric Mongolian descendants

    Result Russians are NOT Slavic and have no real clam to Slavic historical lands

    The Mongolian Y-DNA (paternal) haplogroup R1a and its offshoots are very common and the dominant gen among Russian men.

    Studies have found the ethnic Russian frequency of R1a ranges from a low of 19.8 percent to as high as 62.7 percent, with an average of 46.7% of Russian men carrying R1a. Russian men carry R1a at a lower frequency (33.4%) than other Russian men (49%). R1a spread throughout many areas of North eastern Europe because of with the migration, following the migration of some of them from West Asia (the northern Middle East). specific subgroups of R1a is found among Russians in the “Russia-DNA Project” include R1a1, R1a1a, R1a1a1g, and R1a1a1g2.

    The Association of Jewish Organisations and Communities (VAAD) of
    Ukraine responded with an open letter saying that President Putin’s
    assertions about the rise of anti-Semitism in their country “did not
    match reality”.

    Shmuel Kaminetsky, and The Association of Jewish
    Organisations and Communities (VAAD) told in this open letter that Mr
    Putin’s advisers “might have confused Ukraine with Russia where Jewish
    organisations registered a rise of anti-Semitism last year”, it added.

    Shmuel Kaminetsky, a rabbi in Dnipropetrovsk, home to one of the country’s
    largest Jewish communities, also rejects the idea that Ukraine is
    anti-Semitic.

    The Russians are still living under the illusion that the all Ukrainians are Banderistas and fascists.

    (Bandera was in a German KZ camp Sachsenhausen concentration camp from 1941 until 1944 )

    en . wikipedia . org/wiki/Stepan_Bandera#Relationship_with_Nazi_Germany

    In 1941 relations between naziGermany and the OUN-B soured to the point where a germannazi document dated 25 November 1941 stated that “… the Bandera Movement is preparing a revolt in the Reichskommissariat which has as its ultimate aim the establishment of an independent Ukraine.

    All functionaries of the Bandera Movement must be arrested at once and, after thorough interrogation, are to be liquidated…”.

    On July 5, Bandera was arrested and transferred to Berlin.

    On July 12, the president of the newly formed Ukrainian state, Yaroslav Stetsko, was also arrested and taken to Berlin.

    Although released from custody on July 14, both were required to stay in Berlin. In January 1942, Bandera was transferred to Sachsenhausen concentration camp’s special barrack for high-profile political prisoners Zellenbau

    Russians living in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. I really think that the Russians aren’t the ones to lecture Ukraine and Ukrainians about fascism, especially since they were the ones that signed the pact with the devil [nazigermany] and started World War II… and even today RuSSia are still glorifying Stalin,”. Hitlers good buddy in 1937-1941 Hitler and Stalin started ww2 together when the invaded Poland

    Molotov-Ribbentrop Treaty. Secret protocols of the treaty defined the
    territorial spheres of influence Germany and Russia would have after a successful invasion of Poland On September 1,1939 Hitler’s forces invaded Poland from the west. According to plan, Soviet troops invaded Polish territory from the east on September 17. Poland surrendered on September 27. The next day Poland was partitioned according to the treaty’s scheme, ending a brief twenty year period as an independent nation.

    What TimTom says is correct. While I don’t wish to denigrate the Russian armed forces the fact is that they are no match for that of the United States. Add in the European countries that make up NATO and the dynamics are even worse for Russia. Simply put, Russia is no longer a super-power. Yes, they have nuclear weapons but so does Britain, France and the United States–not that it will ever come down to that. In essence, Russia is a regional power with the economic might of Italy. The one thing Russia does not want to do is to get into it with the U.S. or NATO and that is why everybody is pretty much sloughing off all of the crazy talk of Putin and his buddies. They know it’s all empty rhetoric. The danger (for Putin) is that he cannot continue this reckless course much longer. As the “First Rule of Holes” goes: When you find yourself in a hole—-STOP DIGGING! And make no mistake, right now Putin has dug himself into a big hole. To that end he will either have to try to negotiate a retreat (from Crimea) or he will have to up the ante. But as anyone who has been paying attention for the last 100 years knows the U.S. is a militaristic civilization and wars are what it does best. Putin needs to be afraid…very afraid lest he finds himself in a situation he cannot get out of.

  • TIMTOM

    and more likely, you’re a Russian FSB troll cråck-heas d making a feeble attempt to discredit that dose not agree with your beloved ex KGB Putins ideas to restate the USSR in sheep’s clothing ..

    The thing man-child Putin has overlooked is what the global interdependence countries really have when it comes to control…..

    Lest look at it this way….

    If Mr man-child Putin will not Play ball and play nice….

    Then global interdependence countries can turn the off your credit cards or we can make sure your German cars don’t get parts and don’t work just like your Lada never has worked LOL or we can turn off the Internet … Or your apple phones switch off or the swift system doesn’t work etc etc

    He can play with his nukes all he likes (don’t forget NATO has together more nukes then he does to play with ) ….. If he presses that button then Russians will need to learn a VERY different lifestyle go back too their ….. Nomadic Mongolian roots probably LOL

    I see Putin is now running to China like the little Mongolian boy he is with his cap in one hand and a beggar’s tin-cup in the other …

    Please please Mr C….=China give me some little money for food so I can feed my rotting nation.

    I have no money, my RUBLE’S are worthless rubble because I had some stupid grandiose paranoia and megalomaniac ideas, about taking over Ukraine and not following international law no one will play with me anymore …. LOL

    What a BIG MAN the man-child boy Putin is now LOL

    Lets look at Putins RuSSia and how it trying to take undercover control and run a divide and conquer tactic in the west..

    Mr. Putin has cultivated in Europe. Parties like fare right party s like Jobbik in Hungary and the Northern League in Italy see Mr. Putin as a bulwark against a tide of Western liberalism and the EU system.,

    But the appeal is more than ideological.

    In France, the leader of the far-right National Front, Marine Le Pen, recently acknowledged that her party had received a loan for 9 million euros, or about $11 million, from a Kremlin-linked bank.

    In the middle of 2011, Bulgaria’s prime minister, Boiko Borisov, granted usa Chevron a permit to explore for shale gas. Almost immediately, a well-organized campaign emerged to kill shale exploration in the contrey started before it began, fueled in part by loyalists for Ataka, one of several far-right parties in Bulgaria all well known good buddys of Putin…

    Why you ask well in Bulgaria start using its shale gass it wil not nned Russian gass shale.

    Bulgaria get today about 90% of its gas from Russia..and this is why Putin is become very good friends with neonazis and fare right party’s in EU too stop any fracking gas exploration…

    The anti-fracking anti shale gas movement in Bulgaria became so broad that in January 2012, Bulgarian Parliament banned not only the extraction of shale gas, but even exploration that would quantify the country’s reserves.

    This is why Putinis funding fare right partys in the west like funding La Pen in france and the Greek far right party well know noe-nazi party Golden Dawn in Athens..

    The cherman of the fare right Ataka party in Bulgarias Mr. Siderov has undeniably close ties to the Kremlin. He kicked off his most recent political campaign in Moscow, where he was receiving the Fatherland Star medal for promoting what Putin calles closer relations between Russia and Bulgaria.

    LETS LOOK AT PUTIN ON THE HOME FRONT…

    One of the biggest advisory to Putin and the Kremlin is Alexander Dugin ..

    Who is this Alexander Dugin ??

    Well an old saying is one is the companion you hold and the friends you have…

    Russian fascist Aleksandr Dugin’s dreams of a RuSSian dictatorship and he is getting it with his good friend and leader Mr Putin..Anti-Semite and former leader of Ku Klux Klan David Duke is a very good friend of Dugins …..

    I don’t think either NATO or the US should imagine that it can use its military strength to intimate Patin into giving the Crimea back to Ukraine. The best the West can hope for is containment of Russian expansion. Economic pressure is the best way to achieve this goal. If in a worst case scenario, NATO were forced to use military assets against the Russians, then God help us all.

    More than a third of the country’s 143million population voted in the Name of Russia series.. NOW THAT SAYS WHAT Russians people are really like and what they look up too STALIN IS in their hearts and in their sole..stalin was pure evil…

    What other conclusion can one take then Evil evil evil people the world, will be better of with out …

    I mean what does the world say about the German neonazi when they look back a Nazi Germany with nostalgia they call them evil right……

    And I for one totally agree 100% ..

    The neo -soviets / Stalinist that support neo- Stalinist Putin (80% of ethnic Russian in Russia ) all look back and even proudly like to identify them self’s with the soviet history look back at this as that 75 years of soviet existence in time as a great proud time of Russian history….

    What a bunch of evil evil evil evil fools …..

    And on another note i think you will need to look long and hard to day to find a German look back to the NAZIS with proud memories of German history….What is not functioning in the Russians twisted evil little brains ?????

Immorality is a pagan ancient religion of failure and pagans always want to make it seem that their new attempt and Sodom and Gomorrah is something “modern”. Where did you cut and paste that line of ridiculous garbage from without validation. Pagans need to shut their mouth because all they do is provoke, desire, and cause war because they have no other goals beyond what their little brains can grasp in the here and now. Russia is nuclear genius, and if you destabilize them you have something you cannot imagine. You have no answer but chaos.

    most Russian are AND NUT JOBS LIKE YOU are victims of small small winner syndrome, and that is how the Russian nations nervous mental emotional disorder and physiological neurosis functions in Putin s Russia today it acts a bit childish, pathetic with a small small winner syndrome complex .. at to add too the paranoia
    they rant away about fascists in Kyiv and dark U.S. plots to purge Russian speakers from East Ukraine. It’s not just what they say but how they say it that is so disturbing: irrational spirals of paranoia, theories so elaborate and illogical one can’t possibly argue with them.

    And this is even before the CIA bombs start falling on them: the errand is always the same PUTINS propaganda goal is to keep the 140-million-strong population reeling with oohs and aaahs about homosex and God, Satan, fascists, the CIA and far-fetched geopolitical nightmares. And all because of Russian small small winner syndrome
    complex it works like a trick..

    RT News, Alexey Nikolov, told in a interviewed once to western media when asked What does Russia Today
    stand and what is the Russian point of view…

    He answered …“Oh, there is always a Russian point of view,” he answered. “Take a banana. For someone it’s food. For someone else it’s a weapon. For a racist it’s something to tease a black person with.”

    And there you have it: Russia’s opportunistic foreign policy, all wrapped up in a banana
    metaphor.

    Thus the Kremlin preaches non-intervention and sovereignty while defending Assad, yet uses the reverse position to justify the invasion of Georgia and annexation of Crimea. Thus it warns against American exceptionalism while claiming that Russia has a special mission to rule over and enlighten its “near abroad.” The Russian point of view is anything the Kremlin wants it to be.

    Putin is a KGB thug and atheist you religious dimwit…

    Reading Putin through that lens helps bring into focus why Ukraine has become such an obsession with Putin.

    Putin is like a shark: He has to keep moving in order to stay alive, meaning to legitimate his rule. The Maidan Revolution of Dignity in Ukraine threatened to halt Putin’s forward progress by posing an alternative, and potentially attractive, model of 21st-century social and political life among the eastern Slavs: not simply, or even primarily, because it promised access to the cornucopia of Western consumer goods, but because it promised a public life cleansed of corruption, violence, lies, and authoritarianism.

    Vladimir Putin is thus best understood as a Russian-based global Mafia don who has refined the mafia model with a Leninist political methodology, enhanced by the new propaganda methods of social media and by classic appeals to a stern form of Russian nationalism and paranoia

    Putin’s cronies’ are spreading Russian gold among cash-strapped Western non-governmental organizations and to cash-strapped governmnets to lobby for Russia in the EU has worked well for the Krimlin Moscow have significantly affected EU– relations and exposed sharp internal weeknes by trying hard to divide this EU nations internally
    this effect of russia divide-and-conquer’ tactics against the EU nations internally and with in the EU and with EU US relations is not to be doubted.

    Stupid western businessmen and financiers are as old as Lenin’s famous observation, almost a century ago, that the capitalists would sell him the rope with which he then will hang them with.Historically ill-informed and ideologically blinded politicians are a lot older than that.

    Those who fall into this trap were once known as “useful idiots.” Their utility som say may be marginal, in the larger scheme of things; the idiocy ought not to be in question.

    Greece and Greece’s new Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias and nations like Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia and other nations like finland are good exsampals of nations that have leaders that are ill-informed and / or ideologically blinded
    with in the EU…

    Russia has been courting Greece’s Syriza for some time. In May 2014, Alexis Tsipras—now Greece’s prime minister—was received in Moscow as an honored guest by Valentina Matviyenko, chair of the upper house of Russia’s parliament. Since then, Tsipras has echoed the Kremlin line that the government in Ukraine is composed of “fascists and neo-Nazis,” supported separatist referendums in eastern Ukraine, and this month repeated Greece’s opposition to more European sanctions against Moscow. Nikos Kotzias, a former professor at the University of Piraeus who is now Greece’s foreign minister, is also close to Russian philosopher Alexander Dugin, whose doctrine of “Eurasianism” combines a mystical, anti-Western philosophy with Russian ultranationalism. In December 2014, a Russian hacker group named Shaltai Boltai released a trove of emails linking top Syriza leaders with Dugin and Russian oligarch Konstantin Malofeyev, who has bankrolled the separatist movement in Ukraine.

    Russia’s new friends come from a wide—and bewildering—variety of backgrounds. But they all have two things in common: a disdain for the European Union, and a dislike of U.S.A Most are also social conservatives and eurosceptics
    “Everyone from Venezuela to China who believes the West is degenerate and rotted by homosexuality has Putin as their poster boy.

    Most Kremlin supporters, though, are on the other side ideological spectrum. Gabor Vona, for instance, the head of Hungary’s extreme-right Jobbik party, says his mission is “to liberate Hungary from the Euro-Atlantic slavery…and to expel liberal cultural policy and influence from the state sector.” He has praised Putin for defending and fighting for “traditional family values, Christian morality and our common Eurasian heritage,” and claims that the EU is supporting “ethnic cleansing among the Russian-speaking people in Ukraine.” “The strengthening of Jobbik is useful for Moscow,” says Peter Morvay, a political analyst at Hungary’s ATV television channel. “It is a win-win situation.” Prime Minister Orban’s Fidesz party is already pro-Russian, Jobbik even more so. “Putin is eyeing Vona as a possible future partner who could possibly lead Hungary out of the EU,”

    France’s far-right National Front is much closer to power, with its popularity growing by the day. It supports Putin, and last year the party accepted at least 9 million euros in Russia-backed loans, including 2 million from a Cypriot firm owned by former KGB officer Yuri Kudimov, who is also a former director of VEB Capital, a state-owned Russian bank. Party leader Marine Le Pen described the loans as “perfectly legal,” saying the party turned to Russia after being rejected by Western banks.

    The list of Russian-backed parties goes on. According to the website Political Capital, of the 24 right-wing populist parties that took about a quarter of the European Parliament’s seats in May elections, 15 were “committed” to Russia. Bulgaria’s extreme-right Ataka party, which has been one of the organizers of anti-NATO protests in Sofia this month, was suspected by the U.S. State Department of ties to the Russian Embassy in Sofia, according to confidential cables released by Wikileaks. Joerg Haider, the late leader of Austria’s Freedom Party, has been named by Austrian prosecutors in a million-dollar-residence-permits-for-bribes scandal involving Russian businessmen. Even Nigel Farage, head of Britain’s anti-Europe U.K. Independence Party, called Putin “the statesman I most admire” and argued that the EU “directly encouraged the [Euromaidan] uprising in Ukraine” that “led in turn to Vladimir Putin reacting.”

    “For many it’s a case of ‘my enemy’s enemy is my friend’: people who hate the EU support the EU’s enemies,”

    “Its a crazy failure of logic, of course—look at the euroskeptics who ended up on the same side as Soviet nostalgics in Ukraine. I am astonished how people who call themselves nationalists can be so quick to subordinate their interests to a foreign power.”

    Spying for Russia

    Hungarian government sought to revoke parliamentary immunity for Béla Kovács, a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) for Jobbik, in order to charge him with spying for Russia and accepting illegal Russian campaign contributions (Kovács, who worked as a businessman in Russia for 15 years and has a Russian wife, denied the charges and his immunity was not lifted).

    Winston Churchill famously remarked that, when the German High Command put Lenin in a sealed train in Switzerland in 1917 and transported him back to Russia, it was akin to putting a “plague bacillus” into the “water supply of a great city.” Corrupt and kleptocratic regimes are nothing new on the world stage, and, while they are very bad for their own suffering people, they are not necessarily lethal threats to world order. Putin’s Leninist kleptocracy is such a lethal threat. Because he must keep going, he must be stopped: not only for the sake of Ukraine, the Baltic states, and the dying Russian nation, but for the sake of the minimum of world order required to keep the post–Cold War peace.

    If ukraine and the EU is to survive Putins oligarchy mafia kleptocracy state know to the world as putin russian putin’s shark attack must be stopped..

  • pastor luke

    The fact is that we were all getting along very well until the U.S. government supported the illegal coup in Ukraine and the overthrow of a valid government. We need to stop this not so secret pagan regime change mentality. Putin is a Christian, so now we persecute Christians too because they are moral. Even Steven Segal likes Putin, and the Chinese support him and they have a long history of honor and integrity. So who is running the show if they don’t like Christ and persecute Christian pastors here too? Google “meiervmeggs” (just highlight what is in the quotes and press your browser) and see he biggest pro se lawsuit in U.S. History going before the Supreme court right now. You can actually read the petition. If you read anything in the next year you have to read the 39 page petition; it will shock you. So, now Putin is the bad guy because he supports the church, and defends his people against illegal aggression and economic attacks. Until now everyone was getting along great sharing the space station, a wonderful job hosting the Olympics, sharing resources. All of the sudden Putin is a demon…..open your eyes people to the facts. Pagans always demonize people rather than use facts. They even called Jesus Satan and crucified him so what does that tell you. We need to all be friends in Christ and stop this evil war mongering.

    Russia is worse then North Korea…a true evil nation by any standard !!!

    Why you ask ??

    Well in North Korea the People give there support to the regime because they don’t have any contact with the outside world and therefor have no access to information and only get the regimes so called truth from the regimes propaganda spin doctors..

    But in RuSSia all the people have access to information from anywhere they wish at any time they wish… But still they belive and support the evil of the regime of Putin…

    Russians mindset is all about what they thinks makes them as a nation look big and if that means they need to support evil regimes like Putin’s Russia then that is what they do freely and willingly …

    Look at it this way…

    Today in Russia ALL THE PEOPLE Yes all of them…. have access to more information within a minute at any time day or night then you will find in ALL OF THE WORLDS libraries all put together…

    And how do they have that you ask??

    Well its called the internet and all you need is a Phone to accesses it… And a phone is something ALL RUSSIANS HAVE with them 24 hours of every day 365 days of every year…

    … BUT THAT IS NOT THE CASE in North Korea for North Koreans ..most of them dont even have a phone in their homes and free accsess to internet in North Korea is not an option …

    RuSSia is a nation full of freewill brainwashed evil people called Russians…

    The Putin apologist will say that WE ARE ALL really missing the point Most of this Russians don’t read English and get only the Russian info and they can somewhat be excused for their fanatic attitudes..

    But I say to the Putin apologist …. That they can believe it or not the biggest support for Putins evil regime are in the big citys and and most of them read English and understand English websites they also have accesses to the internet when ever they want ..

    Just look at the support Putin has with Russians living in the west take a look at western media blogs and comments done be Russians living outside of Russia and from 2nd and 3rd generation Russians that in most cases never has even been to Russia and lived in the west all their lives THEY ARE THE BIGGEST supporters of Putin ..

    Russians have a mentality like fanatic religious Muslims.. NO MATTER where they live or where they was born they are fanatical about staying Muslim and promoting their fanatical action of changing the nation they are living into a stat they controll and work hard to implement that end game that is to take over of any land and nation they can..

    Just like most fanatics being Russian for Russians and promoting and exporting their culture,language and dominance with Russafacation of other nations is almost a religion for them ..and they have done it for centuries

    This has to do with Russian mentality ..and how Russians see things..\

    AND THEY SEE THINGS LIKE THIS

    1. Ukraine belongs to Moscow and Russia and so does the Baltic stats and Poland along with all other Slavic lands ..

    2. Ukrainian’s are under Russians in the pecking order just like all other Slavic nations and anyone else for that mater are and they must all understand their place in the world …

    3 Any Ukrainian that say otherwise is a noenazis supporter and must be put in their place..

    4 If they don’t understand their place in the world Russia will make them understand by any main’s necessary..

    The true Soviet Story very shocking do not click if you are not ready to be totaly descusted by the truth (2008)

    He can play with his nukes all he likes (don’t forget NATO has together more nukes then he does to play with ) ….. If he presses that button then Russians will need to learn a VERY different lifestyle go back too their ….. Nomadic Mongolian roots probably LOL

    The truth is that Russia is trying to bully its neighbors using anything they can….

    NATO is constantly having to scrambled its jets in response to Russian sorties and aggression, as Russian jets are flying into NATO airspace to test NATO response time. According to NATO it scramble its jets 150
    times more in 2014 in response to Russian sorties then in 2013 this is over three times more than in 2013.

    Moscow also held surprise military exercises in Kaliningrad, its enclave that borders Lithuania,
    in December, with 9,000 troops and 55 ships.

    We can go on and on and on and show evidence of Russia’s truly aggressive attitude towards it neighbors lately. Anyone that has half a brain understand what type of nation, Russia really is that elects a evil little man like KGB Putin.

    Putin that has stated many times, that the biggest geopolitical disaster in history, was the fall of the soviet union and goes on to call the fall of the soviet union a geopolitical Chernobyl… Now what does that really tell you about his mind sett and the mined sett of Russian that voted for him?

    The truth is that Russia is a failed state run by a flawed little man with a big HOLE in the middle of
    his face, where massive verbal propaganda EXCREMENT gets, pressed out on a daily basis to the half drunk masses of Russia, to swallow down with their cheep vodka.Putin with his even bigger ego sprout out
    this propaganda, so Russians can believe they are the power of the universe and Putin is the god to show them the way and take them to the promised land of the neoStalinist world, they will called Eurasian union
    with Moscow as its center of power for a new Russian world ..

    With your logic then Finland is a buffer zone for Russia for NATO Norway.. And Russia needs also to take over Alaska as it needs to have a buffer zone between then and use Canada… On the other hand with your logic Poland needs to take over and use Ukraine as a buffer zone agenst Russian ..

    Also the only the only nation exsept from Ukraine that had any armed force in Ukraine was and still is Russia so what NATO bases are you talking about …

    Also you say Russia had Ukraine as a buffer against NATO… Well her is a news flash Ukraine can do what ever they want with out asking Russia a nation dose not need to ask Russia what it can or can not do just because it borders Russia,,

    Does Norway , Finland, Sweden and the Baltic states , Poland and the USA ask Russia what the can or can not do NO or even better dose Russia ask any of this nation what Russia can do as it borders then let me answer you NO they do not ..

    SO WHY THE F%¤#&%¤#” must Ukraine as for any premition from Moscow about anything …

    and lest not forget the Russia agreed to the 1994 Budapest Memorandum in which the Russia HAS AGREED TO and agreed to Respect Ukrainian independence and sovereignty within its existing borders of 1994 ..

    According to the memorandum, Russia, the U.S., and the UK confirmed, in recognition of Ukraine becoming party to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons and in effect abandoning its nuclear arsenal to Russia, that they would:

    Respect Ukrainian independence and sovereignty within its existing borders.

    Refrain from the threat or use of force against Ukraine.

    Refrain from using economic pressure on Ukraine in order to influence its politics.

    Seek immediate United Nations Security Council action to provide assistance to Ukraine, “if Ukraine should become a victim of an act of aggression or an object of a threat of aggression in which nuclear weapons are used”.

    Refrain from the use of nuclear arms against Ukraine.

    Consult with one another if questions arise regarding these commitments

    This Russian invasion of Ukraine would not be occurring if russia and Russian stooges in Ukraine had not disarmed Ukraine of her NUCLEAR ARSENAL in 1994.

We are not talking about all the tin horn dictators the US has rolled over in the past decade, russia has as many or more nuclear weapons as the US and NATO and has no problem at all using them – understandably so – to protect their homeland. It really doesn’t matter who would “win” in this war that the neocons want soooo bad, millions will die and those small small Baltic nations will be crushed and destroyed, and most likely, uninhabitable for A LONG TIME! Don’t be fooled either, many european capitals, along with american cities, would very well bear the same fate.20,000,000 russians fought and died to keep the the uber fascist hitler from taking over their nation in WW2. Do you really think the russians, who over 80% agree, america is the aggressor and who approve of the way Mr. Putin is handling the situation, are just going to acquiesce to the US?NATO and allow american fascist to do it?

    Also, militarily, just base on how much we spend, our weapons and military are probably at least on par with the Russians. I believe that we would win a conventional war against them. Of course, no one would win if it went nuclear. That is not a reason to back down to bullying aggression.

    live and die in the cold streets I WILL TELL YOU RuSSians DO ..

    The Independent Street Children Center estimates that
    only six per cent of homeless children in the capital are actually Muscovite’s.

    Just in Moscow alone it is estimated 50,000 homeless children live like this
    in Moscow’s streets, slipping into lives of petty crime, drug-taking
    and prostitution and are kidnapped by Russian pedophile rings and
    Russian mafia sold to the middle east ect ect ect…. Yes ruSSians and Putin love their children don’t they ….

    It comes arose as a bit of a hypocritical paradox that Putins RuSSia is
    sending what he calls help aid to East Ukraine warm blankets and food
    to help his beloved ethnic Russians in Ukraine.. And at the same time
    he does not give a F….. about that one million ethnic Russian
    children are dieing in the Moscow and other Russian city’s streets every
    day because they are staving and cold…and they freezes to death…

    Over one million ethnic Russian street children daily are being terrorized
    by his own police force And kidnapped prostitution by pedophile rings
    and Russian mafia sold to the middle east…

    But street children don’t vote now did they and street children don’t make the Ivans,

    Those who fall into this trap were once known as “useful idiots.” Their utility som say may be marginal, in the larger scheme of things; the idiocy ought not to be in question.

    Greece and Greece’s new Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias and nations like Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia and other nations like finland are good exsampals of nations that have leaders that are ill-informed and / or ideologically blinded
    with in the EU…

    Russia has been courting Greece’s Syriza for some time. In May 2014, Alexis Tsipras—now Greece’s prime minister—was received in Moscow as an honored guest by Valentina Matviyenko, chair of the upper house of Russia’s parliament. Since then, Tsipras has echoed the Kremlin line that the government in Ukraine is composed of “fascists and neo-Nazis,” supported separatist referendums in eastern Ukraine, and this month repeated Greece’s opposition to more European sanctions against Moscow. Nikos Kotzias, a former professor at the University of Piraeus who is now Greece’s foreign minister, is also close to Russian philosopher Alexander Dugin, whose doctrine of “Eurasianism” combines a mystical, anti-Western philosophy with Russian ultranationalism. In December 2014, a Russian hacker group named Shaltai Boltai released a trove of emails linking top Syriza leaders with Dugin and Russian oligarch Konstantin Malofeyev, who has bankrolled the separatist movement in Ukraine.

    Russia’s new friends come from a wide—and bewildering—variety of backgrounds. But they all have two things in common: a disdain for the European Union, and a dislike of U.S.A Most are also social conservatives and eurosceptics
    “Everyone from Venezuela to China who believes the West is degenerate and rotted by homosexuality has Putin as their poster boy.

    Most Kremlin supporters, though, are on the other side ideological spectrum. Gabor Vona, for instance, the head of Hungary’s extreme-right Jobbik party, says his mission is “to liberate Hungary from the Euro-Atlantic slavery…and to expel liberal cultural policy and influence from the state sector.” He has praised Putin for defending and fighting for “traditional family values, Christian morality and our common Eurasian heritage,” and claims that the EU is supporting “ethnic cleansing among the Russian-speaking people in Ukraine.” “The strengthening of Jobbik is useful for Moscow,” says Peter Morvay, a political analyst at Hungary’s ATV television channel. “It is a win-win situation.” Prime Minister Orban’s Fidesz party is already pro-Russian, Jobbik even more so. “Putin is eyeing Vona as a possible future partner who could possibly lead Hungary out of the EU,”

    France’s far-right National Front is much closer to power, with its popularity growing by the day. It supports Putin, and last year the party accepted at least 9 million euros in Russia-backed loans, including 2 million from a Cypriot firm owned by former KGB officer Yuri Kudimov, who is also a former director of VEB Capital, a state-owned Russian bank. Party leader Marine Le Pen described the loans as “perfectly legal,” saying the party turned to Russia after being rejected by Western banks.

    The list of Russian-backed parties goes on. According to the website Political Capital, of the 24 right-wing populist parties that took about a quarter of the European Parliament’s seats in May elections, 15 were “committed” to Russia. Bulgaria’s extreme-right Ataka party, which has been one of the organizers of anti-NATO protests in Sofia this month, was suspected by the U.S. State Department of ties to the Russian Embassy in Sofia, according to confidential cables released by Wikileaks. Joerg Haider, the late leader of Austria’s Freedom Party, has been named by Austrian prosecutors in a million-dollar-residence-permits-for-bribes scandal involving Russian businessmen. Even Nigel Farage, head of Britain’s anti-Europe U.K. Independence Party, called Putin “the statesman I most admire” and argued that the EU “directly encouraged the [Euromaidan] uprising in Ukraine” that “led in turn to Vladimir Putin reacting.”

    “For many it’s a case of ‘my enemy’s enemy is my friend’: people who hate the EU support the EU’s enemies,”

    “Its a crazy failure of logic, of course—look at the euroskeptics who ended up on the same side as Soviet nostalgics in Ukraine. I am astonished how people who call themselves nationalists can be so quick to subordinate their interests to a foreign power.”

    Spying for Russia

    Hungarian government sought to revoke parliamentary immunity for Béla Kovács, a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) for Jobbik, in order to charge him with spying for Russia and accepting illegal Russian campaign contributions (Kovács, who worked as a businessman in Russia for 15 years and has a Russian wife, denied the charges and his immunity was not lifted).

    Winston Churchill famously remarked that, when the German High Command put Lenin in a sealed train in Switzerland in 1917 and transported him back to Russia, it was akin to putting a “plague bacillus” into the “water supply of a great city.” Corrupt and kleptocratic regimes are nothing new on the world stage, and, while they are very bad for their own suffering people, they are not necessarily lethal threats to world order. Putin’s Leninist kleptocracy is such a lethal threat. Because he must keep going, he must be stopped: not only for the sake of Ukraine, the Baltic states, and the dying Russian nation, but for the sake of the minimum of world order required to keep the post–Cold War peace.

    If ukraine and the EU is to survive Putins oligarchy mafia kleptocracy state know to the world as putin russian putin’s shark attack must be stopped..

    Solution; Get the media to report the world news extensively and cover it with learned journalists. Stop the bullshit reporting that ‘excites & stimulates’ just for the sake of it. Educate our youth in a manner that teaches respect & responsibility for themselves and community. I & others can certainly add more to this list as to how to turn America around but finally dump the current way congressional politicians get their election & reelection campaign money in favor of corporate free involvement that turns politicians into favoring business over it’s citizens.

Would you be satisfied, or would again fussed and attacking Putin? My land, my home. No stranger at the table, or at the door. The world needs peace and not fear. But fear suits.

    While Russia is showing the best political light. Pro-American media constantly spreading misinformation. Even in Slovakia, which sees politics of Russia, Europe and America, abolished the media debate. So in Slovakia feel democracy and freedom of opinion in the administration of anti-Russian politicians and the media for yourself. It is thus difficult to believe that America wants Europe well. I do not write about people, but politicians, businessmen, bankers :((((

    Russian logic’s to all “friends” is remember to be an accommodating
    friend, and I will pretend to be your friend.

    And always let me do as a want!!!!! OR I WILL brake your feet and stick them on your head
    and smash YOUR TEETH down your throat!!!!

    Who is the aggressor?

    NO doubt it is Russia !

    Putin continue talking about Russia’s nuclear weapons and hinting to the
    world, that they will blow up everyone if we don’t let Russia have
    their toys and let Russia take over any landmass from any nation it
    wants and let it rape the resources and sell to any nation including
    back to the very nation it stole it from ..(Russia selling Ukraine back
    the coal that Russia has stolen from Ukraine in the donbas)…

    Putin also likes to do this threatening and hinting act, about nuclear war as
    a reminder tactic about Russians nuclear weapons, just to show the
    world and his voters, what a big man he is and a big nation Russia is
    lol…

    What Russians and Putin don’t seem to understand, is that
    it comes off in the west, as a bit childish, pathetic and small small
    winner syndrome… AND NOT dignified, powerful and respectful like his
    Russian peanut brains think it does …

    But most Russian are
    victims of small small winner syndrome, and that is how the Russian
    nations nervous mental emotional disorder and physiological neurosis
    functions in Putin s Russia today it acts a bit childish, pathetic with
    a small small winner syndrome complex .. at to add too the paranoia
    they rant away about fascists in Kyiv and dark U.S. plots to purge
    Russian speakers from East Ukraine. It’s not just what they say but how
    they say it that is so disturbing: irrational spirals of paranoia,
    theories so elaborate and illogical one can’t possibly argue with them.
    And this is even before the CIA bombs start falling on them: the errand
    is always the same PUTINS propaganda goal is to keep the
    140-million-strong population reeling with oohs and aaahs about homosex
    and God, Satan, fascists, the CIA and far-fetched geopolitical
    nightmares. And all because of Russian small small winner syndrome
    complex it works like a trick..

    RT News, Alexey Nikolov, told in a interviewed once to western media when asked What does Russia Today
    stand and what is the Russian point of view…

    He answered …“Oh, there is always a Russian point of view,” he answered. “Take a banana.
    For someone it’s food. For someone else it’s a weapon. For a racist it’s
    something to tease a black person with.”

    And there you have it: Russia’s opportunistic foreign policy, all wrapped up in a banana
    metaphor. Thus the Kremlin preaches non-intervention and sovereignty while defending Assad, yet uses the reverse position to justify the invasion of Georgia and annexation of Crimea. Thus it warns against American exceptionalism while claiming that Russia has a special mission to rule over and enlighten its “near abroad.” The Russian point of view is anything the Kremlin wants it to be.

    When it comes to Ukraine, disseminating “a Russian point of view” has increasingly meant helping
    Russian military and intelligence operations. For example, after
    Moscow-supported rebels in East Ukraine shot down a Malaysian Airlines
    jet in July, RT spat out a multitude of conspiracy theories (from claims
    that the real target of the attack was Putin’s personal plane to
    assertions that Ukrainian fighter jets were behind the tragedy), in
    order to direct attention away from the real perpetrators.

    Some of these tricks smack of an updated model of Active Measures, the Soviet
    era KGB-run disinformation and psychological warfare department designed
    to confuse and disorganize the West.

    The aim is to confuse rather than convince, to trash the information space so the audience gives up
    looking for any truth amid the chaos.

    In the west their also remains a residual, 20th-century belief that Russian propaganda can be
    countered by delivering “real information” to audiences. But Russian TV
    doesn’t try to prove “the truth.” And what good is giving “the truth” to
    an audience that has been emotionally spun by the Kremlin not to
    believe it? Inside Russia today, there is plenty of access to
    alternative information online, and ethnic Russians outside the country
    have plenty of “reliable” sources, but their emotional allegiance is to
    Kremlin broadcasters. The West will need the type of programs that will
    give Russian audiences the analytical tools to understand how they are
    being psychologically manipulated by Kremlin media. Is there a media
    version of Penn and Teller out there—a program that could debunk
    propaganda the way the duo demystifies magic tricks?

    In the words of Russian media analyst Vassily Gatov: “If the 20th century was defined
    by the battle for freedom of information and against censorship, the
    21st century will be defined by malevolent actors, states or
    corporations, abusing the right to freedom of information for quite other ends.”

    Russians now see the west with their Russian childish pathetic kid like way where they see the boogieman (the west) under the bed and behind every turn…

    Russians will see the boogieman with a twist of vodka paranoia in the mix, so it fits with what they wish
    to believe, and that is that the bogie man is real and comes from the west and is out to get them..

    Yes a sort of Putin KGB drink mix propaganda of shaken not stirred where they see CIA, NATO, Mi6 James
    Bond bogie man under every stone and around every corner trying to take Russia down to the abyss of evil and enslave the Russian people and the evidence is on the net and RT – News channel with hard core hard hitting evidence that the Ukrainians and the CIA ousting Putin’s boy in Kiev Yanukovich …lol

    The only conclusion one can take from this is why Russians try to act big and powerful is to scare the so called bogie man off and that is why Putin is coming with small hinting tactics of nuclear war and talking about the so called massive stockpiles of Russia’s nuclear weapons… lol

    Like having nuclear weapons was some sort of spacial magic like a Russian voodoo protection trick that
    they now have against all their perceived evil that comes from the west…..

    Yes some very spacial magic nuclear weapons and with this trick Putin elude the Russians into getting them self’s to thinking, they are the only nation that have accesses to nuclear weapons…..lol

    This way the drunk vodka drinking nation and the drunken Boris the doggy Russian of this world can turn off the night light when he goes to bed and dream about the strong Russian bear Putin, riding half naked on his horse showing the world his massive Russian manliness, by flexing his manlike chest like a Russian real man does so Boris the doggy Russian of the Putin-world knows KGB Putin is standing
    guard with his nuclear toys so now the drunken nation of Russia can sleep safe tonight lol

    The funny thing her is at the same time KGB Putin and Russia claims it is a friendly brother to his neighbor and the western world, like Putin clams to be with Ukraine.. Saying Russian only wants pace with its neighbors comes over as a paradox when Russia has covertly invaded parts of Ukraine….

    NO friend invades or blows up another friends country and comes with hints about nuclear weapons and sounds more like a bully than a friend. A bully is NOT truly a friend, not in the real world the rest of us mortals live in..

    If that is the idea of what Russians calls a friend who really needs any enemies????

    The truth however that Putin propaganda likes to portrayal to the world and the drunken vodka drinking Igor’s and Natasha’s in Moscow something else than reality Putin likes to portrayal bigness with the help of
    barking loudly like the little dogs always do ….

    The truth is that Russia is trying to bully its neighbors using anything they can….

    NATO is constantly having to scrambled its jets in response to Russian sorties and aggression, as Russian jets are flying into NATO airspace to test NATO response time. According to NATO it scramble its jets 150
    times more in 2014 in response to Russian sorties then in 2013 this is over three times more than in 2013.

    Moscow also held surprise military exercises in Kaliningrad, its enclave that borders Lithuania,
    in December, with 9,000 troops and 55 ships.

    We can go on and on and on and show evidence of Russia’s truly aggressive attitude towards it neighbors lately. Anyone that has half a brain understand what type of nation, Russia really is that elects a evil little man like KGB Putin.

    Putin that has stated many times, that the biggest geopolitical disaster in history, was the fall of the soviet union and goes on to call the fall of the soviet union a geopolitical Chernobyl… Now what does that really tell you about his mind sett and the mined sett of Russian that voted for him?

    The truth is that Russia is a failed state run by a flawed little man with a big HOLE in the middle of
    his face, where massive verbal propaganda EXCREMENT gets, pressed out on a daily basis to the half drunk masses of Russia, to swallow down with their cheep vodka.Putin with his even bigger ego sprout out
    this propaganda, so Russians can believe they are the power of the universe and Putin is the god to show them the way and take them to the promised land of the neoStalinist world, they will called Eurasian union
    with Moscow as its center of power for a new Russian world ..

    The article states that Russia will retaliate with ” destabilizing actions that would be even harder to trace back to Russia than those of eastern Ukraine.” Such an unsubstantiated claim can be used to stifle legitimate defense by claiming that it is initiated by Russia. The reader may decide if such a claim is legitimate, but my analysis indicates it is a US/NATO-inspired salvo used to bolster the demonization of Russia and at the same time to thwart legitimate dissent in the home countries by blaming it on Russia.

    The Association of Jewish Organisations and Communities (VAAD) of Ukraine responded with an open letter saying that President Putin’s assertions about the rise of anti-Semitism in their country “did not match reality”.

    Shmuel Kaminetsky, and The Association of Jewish Organisations and Communities (VAAD) told in this open letter that Mr Putin’s advisers “might have confused Ukraine with Russia where Jewish organisations registered a rise of anti-Semitism last year”, it added.

    Shmuel Kaminetsky, a rabbi in Dnipropetrovsk, home to one of the country’s largest Jewish communities, also rejects the idea that Ukraine is anti-Semitic.

    Putin is appealing to yours and Russians most base of instincts and fears.

    Many Russians harbour insecurities related to loss of empire and superpower status. Russia today is distinguished most by being a petro-state and source of lying propaganda. Nothing at all to be proud of. Ukrainians, on the other hand have made a new beginning. They are rejecting Russian-style autocracy, reforming the economy and moving against the pervasive corruption of the old regime. Ukraine naturally and rightfully belongs in Europe.

    Putin has used every means possible, including military aggression and terrorism to damage and subordinate Ukraine. He will not succeed. Ukraine’s whole history revolves around the struggle for liberty and resistance to foreign oppression. We are starkly different to Russians. We are not and have never been slaves.

  • TIMTOM

    United States as a nation began with the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776 – as well as a century and a half earlier, when a group of English Puritans landed on Plymouth Rock in 1620.

    All nations have a story to tell how they came into being. Some are rooted in ancient history while others, including numerous new nations that arose on the ruins of European colonial expansion, tie their emergence to more recent events. But whether mythical or historical, those origins are always connected to the land those nations inhabit.

    Not so Russia. It may be the only major nation to locate its origins in a foreign country. Every Russian school kid learns that his country’s history began on the banks of the Dnipro, in Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine.

    It is as if Americans had decided to trace their history back in the time of William the Conqueror or the War of the Roses.

    This may seem like a minor thing, but it explains a great deal in the average Russian’s attitude toward Ukrainians. If Russia is a direct descendant of historic Kyivan Rus, how can another nation equally trace its origins to it – a nation, moreover, still occupying the same territory?

    Vladimir Putin recently declared that Ukrainians and Russians are “one folk” – meaning, of course, that Ukrainians are Russian. An extraordinary number of his countrymen share this belief. Imagine a prime minister of the United Kingdom insisting that Americans are not a nation but merely Brits with funny accents. But it is even more ridiculous than that: it’s as though the Italian president would lay claim on Spain – or one of Spain’s former colonies in Latin America – asserting that the Spanish language is a bastardized form of Italian.

    Russia’s attitude to Ukraine and things Ukrainian reflects deeply ingrained imperial complexes, revealing that, while the Soviet Empire collapsed in 1991, the Russian Empire still lingers in the minds of the citizens of the Russian Federation. And, one of the strangest things this past year has been the number people with Ukrainian surnames, many of them also born in Ukraine but now living in Russia, who spew hatred for their native land.

    What we know today to be Russians are nothing more than finnish nomadic tribes that assimilated with the mongolian horde in the 1200 They are not slavic people like Ukrainians or Polish people even if they claim to be, and therefore have no real claim to slavic lands or history .. But descendants from finish nomadic tribes that assimilated with the mongolian.

    The Russians brainwashed and you just continue to brainwash everyone, when they
    assert that Kyivan Rus was the cradle of three sibling nations – Russians, Ukrainians and Belarus; and that because the Russians are “older brothers”, they have the right to the legacy of Kyivan Rus. To this day, Russian historians and officials make use of this woeful lie, which is repeated by Putin in his propagand today .

    Here are the facts:

    At the time of the Kyivan Empire there was no mention of a Moscow nation in hisrory Russia was not a part of history befor 1721 when it was proclamed be peter the grate It is well known that Moscow was created in 1277 as a
    subservient vassal region or ‘ulus’ to the Golden Horde, established by the Khan Mengu-Timur. By that time, Ukrainians city of Kiev and the Ukrainians pepoles the Kyivan Rus had existed for more than 300 years.

    There are no indications of any connection of Ukrainians pepoles the Kyivan Rus with the Finnish ethnic groups in the land of ‘Moksel’ what roday we know as russia or the later of the Moscow principality with the Principality of Kyivan Rus up until the XVI century. At the time when the Ukrainians pepoles (Kyivan Rus ) had officially accepted Christianity, the Finn tribes in ‘Moksel’ todays russia was stil living in a semi-primitive nornadic state.

    How can anyone speak of ‘an older brother’ when that ‘older brother’ did not first appear until centuries after Rus-Ukrainians? He has no moral right to call himself an ‘older brother’, nor to dictate how people are to live, nor to force his culture, language, and world views.

    Russians er nothing more then Mongolians with Down Syndrome thinking they are from Kiev Russ and Slavic background when the DNA study of today’s so called Russians shows that the historical facts are thay they are Mongoloid / Finno-Ugric descendents and NOT Slavic…

    The DNA evidence proves that Russians with out a doubt are Mongoloid / Finno-Ugric descendents ..

    1. Russians are not Slavic.

    2. Russians are Mongolians / Finno-Ugric

    3. Russians are lying about where they come from and how they really are

    4.The DNA study’s and results er inn LOL You can’t change facts, what we call today Russians are Finno-Ugric Mongolian descendants

    Result Russians are NOT Slavic and have no real clam to Slavic historical lands

    END OF STORY

    The Mongolian Y-DNA (paternal) haplogroup R1a and its offshoots are very common and the dominant gen among Russian men.

    Studies have found the ethnic Russian frequency of R1a ranges from a low of 19.8 percent to as high as 62.7 percent, with an average of 46.7% of Russian men carrying R1a. Russian men carry R1a at a lower frequency (33.4%) than other Russian men (49%). R1a spread throughout many areas of North eastern Europe because of with the migration, following the migration of some of them from West Asia (the northern Middle East). specific subgroups of R1a is found among Russians in the “Russia-DNA Project” include R1a1, R1a1a, R1a1a1g, and R1a1a1g2.

    I wonder if Putin’s threats aren’t really focused on China rather than NATO? NATO isn’t a threat to Russia in that they have shown no real moves that can really be considered aggressive. China has so many people that they need more and more land to feed them, and China is moving north by building new cities and bring new sources of water north. Sooner or later China will set its sights on Siberia and untapped natural resources in the Arctic. I am thinking Putin is just using NATO as a way to tell China that we will use our nukes if you try anything in Siberia.

    RUSSIAN MYTHS ABOUT CRIMEA AND UKRAINE

    Crimea has never really been Russian. any more than Norway is Swedish just because they was forcefully taking into an union with Sweden and for some time under brutal Swedish occupation dose not make Norway indo Swedish lands … Ukraine has bean from time to time under Swedish occupation and even some Norwegian city’s was built by Swedish occupier’s But that doesn’t mean that Sweden owns Norway any more then Russian owns Ukraine

    The Russian public has long been encouraged to view Crimea as native Russian land.

    The 2014 annexation of Crimea was actually the fourth Russian attempt to claim the peninsula in the past 250 years. On each occasion, these efforts have ultimately failed. This video is history of Russian deception about the Crimea.

    Reading Putin through that lens helps bring into focus why Ukraine has become such an obsession with Putin.

    Putin is like a shark: He has to keep moving in order to stay alive, meaning to legitimate his rule. The Maidan Revolution of Dignity in Ukraine threatened to halt Putin’s forward progress by posing an alternative, and potentially attractive, model of 21st-century social and political life among the eastern Slavs: not simply, or even primarily, because it promised access to the cornucopia of Western consumer goods, but because it promised a public life cleansed of corruption, violence, lies, and authoritarianism.

    Vladimir Putin is thus best understood as a Russian-based global Mafia don who has refined the mafia model with a Leninist political methodology, enhanced by the new propaganda methods of social media and by classic appeals to a stern form of Russian nationalism and paranoia

    Putin’s cronies’ are spreading Russian gold among cash-strapped Western non-governmental organizations and to cash-strapped governments to lobby for Russia in the EU has worked well for the Kremlin Moscow have significantly affected EU– relations and exposed sharp internal weakness by trying hard to divide this EU nations internally
    this effect of Russia divide-and-conquer’ tactics against the EU nations internally and with in the EU and with EU US relations is not to be doubted.

    Stupid western businessmen and financiers are as old as Lenin’s famous observation, almost a century ago, that the capitalists would sell him the rope with which he then will hang them with.Historically ill-informed and ideologically blinded politicians are a lot older than that.

    Those who fall into this trap were once known as “useful idiots.” Their utility some say may be marginal, in the larger scheme of things; the idiocy ought not to be in question.

    Greece and Greece’s new Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias and nations like Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia and other nations like Finland are good examples of nations that have leaders that are ill-informed and / or ideologically blinded
    with in the EU…

    Russia has been courting Greece’s Syriza for some time. In May 2014, Alexis Tsipras—now Greece’s prime minister—was received in Moscow as an honored guest by Valentina Matviyenko, chair of the upper house of Russia’s parliament. Since then, Tsipras has echoed the Kremlin line that the government in Ukraine is composed of “fascists and neo-Nazis,” supported separatist referendums in eastern Ukraine, and this month repeated Greece’s opposition to more European sanctions against Moscow. Nikos Kotzias, a former professor at the University of Piraeus who is now Greece’s foreign minister, is also close to Russian philosopher Alexander Dugin, whose doctrine of “Eurasianism” combines a mystical, anti-Western philosophy with Russian ultra-nationalism. In December 2014, a Russian hacker group named Shaltai Boltai released a trove of emails linking top Syriza leaders with Dugin and Russian oligarch Konstantin Malofeyev, who has bankrolled the separatist movement in Ukraine.

    Russia’s new friends come from a wide—and bewildering—variety of backgrounds. But they all have two things in common: a disdain for the European Union, and a dislike of U.S.A Most are also social conservatives and eurosceptics
    “Everyone from Venezuela to China who believes the West is degenerate and rotted by homosexuality has Putin as their poster boy.

    Most Kremlin supporters, though, are on the other side ideological spectrum. Gabor Vona, for instance, the head of Hungary’s extreme-right Jobbik party, says his mission is “to liberate Hungary from the Euro-Atlantic slavery…and to expel liberal cultural policy and influence from the state sector.” He has praised Putin for defending and fighting for “traditional family values, Christian morality and our common Eurasian heritage,” and claims that the EU is supporting “ethnic cleansing among the Russian-speaking people in Ukraine.” “The strengthening of Jobbik is useful for Moscow,” says Peter Morvay, a political analyst at Hungary’s ATV television channel. “It is a win-win situation.” Prime Minister Orban’s Fidesz party is already pro-Russian, Jobbik even more so. “Putin is eyeing Vona as a possible future partner who could possibly lead Hungary out of the EU,”

    France’s far-right National Front is much closer to power, with its popularity growing by the day. It supports Putin, and last year the party accepted at least 9 million euros in Russia-backed loans, including 2 million from a Cypriot firm owned by former KGB officer Yuri Kudimov, who is also a former director of VEB Capital, a state-owned Russian bank. Party leader Marine Le Pen described the loans as “perfectly legal,” saying the party turned to Russia after being rejected by Western banks.

    The list of Russian-backed parties goes on. According to the website Political Capital, of the 24 right-wing populist parties that took about a quarter of the European Parliament’s seats in May elections, 15 were “committed” to Russia. Bulgaria’s extreme-right Ataka party, which has been one of the organizers of anti-NATO protests in Sofia this month, was suspected by the U.S. State Department of ties to the Russian Embassy in Sofia, according to confidential cables released by Wikileaks. Joerg Haider, the late leader of Austria’s Freedom Party, has been named by Austrian prosecutors in a million-dollar-residence-permits-for-bribes scandal involving Russian businessmen. Even Nigel Farage, head of Britain’s anti-Europe U.K. Independence Party, called Putin “the statesman I most admire” and argued that the EU “directly encouraged the [Euromaidan] uprising in Ukraine” that “led in turn to Vladimir Putin reacting.”

    “For many it’s a case of ‘my enemy’s enemy is my friend’: people who hate the EU support the EU’s enemies,”

    “Its a crazy failure of logic, of course—look at the euroskeptics who ended up on the same side as Soviet nostalgics in Ukraine. I am astonished how people who call themselves nationalists can be so quick to subordinate their interests to a foreign power.”

    Spying for Russia

    Hungarian government sought to revoke parliamentary immunity for Béla Kovács, a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) for Jobbik, in order to charge him with spying for Russia and accepting illegal Russian campaign contributions (Kovács, who worked as a businessman in Russia for 15 years and has a Russian wife, denied the charges and his immunity was not lifted).

    Winston Churchill famously remarked that, when the German High Command put Lenin in a sealed train in Switzerland in 1917 and transported him back to Russia, it was akin to putting a “plague bacillus” into the “water supply of a great city.” Corrupt and kleptocratic regimes are nothing new on the world stage, and, while they are very bad for their own suffering people, they are not necessarily lethal threats to world order. Putin’s Leninist kleptocracy is such a lethal threat. Because he must keep going, he must be stopped: not only for the sake of Ukraine, the Baltic states, and the dying Russian nation, but for the sake of the minimum of world order required to keep the post–Cold War peace.

    If Ukraine and the EU is to survive Putins oligarchy mafia kleptocracy state know to the world as putin Russia putin’s shark attack must be stopped..

    Russia is worse then North Korea…a true evil nation by any standard !!!

    Why you ask ??

    Well in North Korea the People give there support to the regime because they don’t have any contact with the outside world and therefor have no access to information and only get the regimes so called truth from the regimes propaganda spin doctors..

    But in RuSSia all the people have access to information from anywhere they wish at any time they wish… But still they belive and support the evil of the regime of Putin…

    Russians mindset is all about what they thinks makes them as a nation look big and if that means they need to support evil regimes like Putin’s Russia then that is what they do freely and willingly …

    Look at it this way…

    Today in Russia ALL THE PEOPLE Yes all of them…. have access to more information within a minute at any time day or night then you will find in ALL OF THE WORLDS libraries all put together…

    And how do they have that you ask??

    Well its called the internet and all you need is a Phone to accesses it… And a phone is something ALL RUSSIANS HAVE with them 24 hours of every day 365 days of every year…

    … BUT THAT IS NOT THE CASE in North Korea for North Koreans ..most of them dont even have a phone in their homes and free access to internet in North Korea is not an option …

    RuSSia is a nation full of freewill brainwashed evil people called Russians…

    The Putin apologist will say that WE ARE ALL really missing the point Most of this Russians don’t read English and get only the Russian info and they can somewhat be excused for their fanatic attitudes..

    But I say to the Putin apologist …. That they can believe it or not the biggest support for Putins evil regime are in the big citys and and most of them read English and understand English websites they also have accesses to the internet when ever they want ..

    Just look at the support Putin has with Russians living in the west take a look at western media blogs and comments done be Russians living outside of Russia and from 2nd and 3rd generation Russians that in most cases never has even been to Russia and lived in the west all their lives THEY ARE THE BIGGEST supporters of Putin ..

    Russians have a mentality like fanatic religious Muslims.. NO MATTER where they live or where they was born they are fanatical about staying Muslim and promoting their fanatical action of changing the nation they are living into a stat they controll and work hard to implement that end game that is to take over of any land and nation they can..

    Just like most fanatics being Russian for Russians and promoting and exporting their culture,language and dominance with Russafacation of other nations is almost a religion for them ..and they have done it for centuries

    This has to do with Russian mentality ..and how Russians see things..\

    AND THEY SEE THINGS LIKE THIS

    1. Ukraine belongs to Moscow and Russia and so does the Baltic stats and Poland along with all other Slavic lands ..

    2. Ukrainian’s are under Russians in the pecking order just like all other Slavic nations and anyone else for that mater are and they must all understand their place in the world …

    3 Any Ukrainian that say otherwise is a noenazis supporter and must be put in their place..

    4 If they don’t understand their place in the world Russia will make them understand by any main’s necessary..

    By saying this, its like Russia bringing a gun to a fist fight. Only a coward would use the big gun. Let fight toe to toe Russia. No nukes. But notice Russia only threaten the U.S with Nukes and no one else because they know they will get their a$$es kicked in a conventional war.

  • Ian Elliott

    The natural consequences of Obama’s weak-kneed foreign policy. He himself admitted, as if in justification, that his long-delayed intervention in Syria was due to pressure from the Kremlin. The longer you wait to take down a bully, the bigger the price of doing so. The nuclear threat is an eleventh-hour challenge from Putin, illustrating that sanctions do not work.

They were a broke and ashamed country when they left Afghanistan. That and President Regan broke the back of the old USSR. Pussies the whole bunch of them. We are the greatest country on the earth right now and will be for a very long time. We will soon be gone from the clinches of President Obama. He only has two more years to f##k us over but he will be gone. New Orleans lol. That was a city that was flooded and the police department there was crooked at that time. They never took over crowd control very good. The Gov and the Mayor at that time was very lated in asking for Federal Help. That was the biggest problem those two polictical people not asking for help until it was almost too late.

I am so tired of people like you that are pacifists and dont want to fight back against people like Putin. Stand up man be a real man and a proud American.

    There has been an intense debate between capitals over how to bolster the alliance’s presence in Central and Eastern Europe. At issue, is whether establishing permanent NATO bases in the region, would violate a 1997 pact with Russia known as NATO-Russia Founding Act.

    Q: Some NATO members are against the permanent stationing of
    troops in Eastern Europe, arguing that it would violate the 1997
    NATO-Russia Founding Act. Are they right?

    Mr. Kornblum: The first important thing is that this
    is not a treaty. It’s not something legal. An act is an agreement of
    political commitments people make. It’s not legally binding. The Germans
    are twisting that around by saying ‘We can’t violate the act.’ But
    there’s nothing to violate.

    Q: If it’s so clear, why do Germany and other NATO members read it differently?

    Mr. Kornblum: The Germans are determined to continue
    following a political track. They don’t want relations with Russia to
    become warlike and they don’t want it to devolve into something
    resembling a cold war. Their view is that if you can hold onto the
    commitment you can still have a dialogue. So they want to avoid being
    seen as having violated the founding act.

    Wesley Clark is a discredited general in the US.

    If you actually “do” have those weapons, it is only because you stole the designs and technology from the West. The last thing the Soviets (aka Russians) designed of any use was the AK-47..the one good weapon in your supposedly “vast” arsenal. I guess your arms “superiority” is the reason you have to buy a navy from the French. Good luck with that! Same for your now discredited 5th generation fighter jet and make believe “super tank”. We laugh at your puny intellect. Death smiles at everyone; America and the West smiles back! Bring It!

    Your generals have foolishly exposed your plans, so if there is even a street disturbance in the Baltics, we will know it is Russia behind it. At that point, any aggression against a NATO member will bring war with the West.

    The Baltics are currently free countries. Russia tells other countries that they have NO RIGHT to interfere in her internal domestic affairs; yet Russia feels they have EVERY RIGHT to intervene in other countries’ domestic affairs. You can’t have it both ways Ivan.

    If there is even a street disturbance in one of these Baltic states, the West will see it as being at the hands of the Russians and the West will annihilate you while you are in such a weakened position that you have to achieve your goals through cowardly lies and deception.

    No they wouldn’t They’d be warmongers like when they used 9/11 to start 2 unnecessary wars against people who did not participate in the actual attack on the World Trade Center and convince a lot of people to blame the wrong ones for doing it instead of attacking the country responsible for teaching the anti Americanism and indoctrinating the hijackers in the first place. They used false pretenses to start both wars so you can not honestly say that they would make Russia more peaceful at all. Obama is not the reason he’s doing this it’s because he wants the Russian or Soviet Empire back and he’s made no secret about it and he was doing this when bush was still in office so that would not stop any of it because he’s going to do what he wants to regardless of who’s president of the US or not and to go out of their way to demean the office of the president of the US just because you don’t like whoever or their color is stupid and hurts American prestige because whether you like who’s in office or not the office should still be respected for their authority because our prestige goes down when the stupid Republican politicians are undermining the structure of our country by their actions against not only the president but the American people so the congress Teabagger conservatives would want to take over and act like Mr. Putin. Nobody needs another war be cause that hurts everyone in a lot of different ways so this threatening people with launching nukes needs to stop and the world has to take measures to make it so that Mr. Putin can no longer be a threat to his neighbors the same way they tried to with Hitler.

    It should be up to the Baltic States whether they want NATO or not to defend them selves against Russian aggression because back in the 1990’s Russia tried to prevent their return to Independence and their national sovereignty which was recognized by everyone except Russia. The Baltic States are not for Russia to take and Putin better think that just as he wants to lob nuclear ICBM’s at the US we can also lob the same and destroy Moscow and potentially take him out while doing it. He is just trying to play a game of chicken and posing trying to convince the Russian people that he can restore their prestige and all this is doing is restoring the old order and not bringing prestige to Russia at all. Earlier this week they had to have people off a Russian ship be rescued by fishermen they should have a Russian equivalent to the US Coast Guard to do the same things ours does. If they want to return to greatness stop the crap and the saber rattling that could destroy a lot more and stop doing the dictator thing you can be a leader without being a dictator. This shows why NATO is still needed to defend Europe’s people from would be dictators and the countries of Eastern Europe can vouch firsthand what life was like under Communist rule and being occupied by Russia and they don’t want it to happen again and they shouldn’t have to and this includes the Baltic States.

Putin is preparing to start a new arms race, and my fear is that Russian Nationalism is going met with American Nationalism.

    It takes two to tango. Putin has showed his hand as an aggressor. He may think he has valid reasons for doing all this, but he does not. One difference between Putin 2015 and Khrushchev 1962, is that Nikita visited the USA back in 1957, and got to meet it’s people up close. It humanized the whole thing for him, five years later. Vladimir has never spent any quality time in America. He hasn’t sat down and eaten barbeque with folks in North Carolina, or talked to steel workers in California. Maybe if he came to America, he’d get a dose of empathy. Same with Obama in Russia.

    Yeah Russia, like Korea and mos entities don’t want a nuclear war. everyone knows a war that big is just going to destroy the world, and the US also produces a large chunk of the world’s food, particularly for Russia. It’s just a scare tactic. But, on one hand, all of those places that Russia is trying to take over were already part of Russia during its soviet era. On the other hand, they chose to break off for a reason. Since there are a lot of people in those countries who are actually Russia and who probably want to join with Russia anyway, there’s not much that can be politically done. Even the UN could contact every person in that country to personally figure out what each person wanted, it would take a lot to stop Russia. Ultimately NATO is likely going to decide that the loss in resources from restricting Russia’s trade won’t outweigh the damage caused by starting more proxy wars.

    By reading & understanding the situation & actions of Russia under Putin, I really question his motives & way of thinking.
    Threatening Eastern Europe, EU & the US, will NOT get Pres. Putin what he wants.
    I hope there was a way to make Putin understand that his country & his legacy will be served better by stopping Russia aggressions against its neighbors & joining the world once again.

    If we still had a Reagan or even a Bush in the White house, Russia would be a more peaceful and, without sanctions, a more prosperous place. Only perceived weaklings invite disastrous wars.

  • lancemh

    My point is this: All of this talk about using nuclear weapons, let alone invading another country under the pretense that “we are not even in that country, just some of our countrymen volunteered” does not exactly inspire security and confidence that the world is any safer. To the contrary. I had hoped the insanity of the Cold War – which I grew up during that era – had passed. It seems Putin has all but forgotten just how dangerous a world we lived in.
    Just in case you are not familiar with the acronym, it was called MAD. As in Mutually Assured Destruction. What an appropriate name. The message was very clear: if either one of us fires a nuclear weapon, the other retaliates and the world comes to an end.
    It’s as though Putin is living on another planet. Does he really think that using nuclear warheads as a tactical weapon in a European theatre of war is not going to bring on the specter, Threatening Wall Street, Main Street or any other street in the United States with nuclear weapons is not a smart idea. Even if Putin or any of us survive, no one wins. I am NO ONE! I would not want to live in some post-apocalyptic world. Would you.
    So what is a more sophisticated retribution than sanctions which cut off funding for their country. If they want to live in a modern world where we all try to live in peace and prosper, they must play by a civilized set of rules where you respect one another’s sovereignty and right to self-rule. Putin has little interest in respecting those rules. So he doesn’t get to play in the sandbox right now. We have effectively put him in a “time-out” and now he is behaving like some petulant two year old.
    Sophisticated? I can think of nothing more sophisticated than isolating a child rather than physically spanking them. When they are spanked, they cry a little and quickly return to the world a bit shamed, but nevertheless present. Timeout (isolation) seems to leave a much more indelible mark on their minds. People do not like to be left alone from everyone else.

  • James Hagen

    Ok, go ahead turn the keys and press the button, otherwise put the saber back in it’s scabbard. We all get enough of that noise from North Korea.

  • Jim Kube

    I agree that we need to respond. We cannot back down in the face of such threats. But as with the 1962 crisis, cooler heads must prevail. Obama and Putin need to speak to each other, privately.

    One issue is that largely, the American people are completely ignorant as to what is going on with the nuclear sabre rattling. Too busy with the Kardashians, the Final Four, or whatever. The mainstream corporate media does not wish to report much if anything about this, as it’s bad for business. Nuclear war is a downer.

    Publicly, we may need to have Obama give a worldwide televised speech about Ukraine, the Baltics, nuclear war, and the West’s relationship with Russia. Obama needs to use every skill he has, to assure Europe and Russia that America means no harm to Russia; that we have no intentions of invading or launching a first strike against them.

    But- we have to defend NATO members under Article V of the NATO treaty, and that we will consider any attack of whatever sort- be it a conventional one or a Ukraine-style “hybrid”- a direct attack on the United States of America, requiring a retaliatory response on Russia. Move to Defcon 2, if need be. But carry on intense private conversations with Putin and others in the Kremlin. And hope that cooler heads will prevail. They have to. We all need to move on to other pressing business.

    However, such an action like a speech might cause panic in the USA and elsewhere, and that is one consideration which needs to be addressed, before such a speech is given. But I think public opinion needs to be galvanized worldwide, in order to force a tamp down on the rhetoric on both sides, both Russia’s and America’s.

  • James A. Burgin

    Actually, President Obama has played the hand he was dealt quite nicely. Slowly we have begun to build up our presence in the Baltic countries and Poland while at the same time we are training–and arming–those same countries along with Ukraine. Conversely, Putin has played his hand very badly as he has gambled for short-term gain (i.e. Crimea) at the expense of long-term problems. He has isolated Russia from the rest of the world, pushed Ukraine and the Baltic countries more forcefully into the arms of the European community, fueled an almost certain American military action sooner or later and has seriously damaged his economy. For what–Crimea? And this is only situations that have developed in the short term! The long-term problems will be even worse! So, until he realizes his mistake and gives Crimea back to Ukraine things are going to go from slightly bad to awful for Russia. Wait and see…

  • Stormy_Rebel

    Well, if they want no threats from outside; they need to stop threatening others. I like Russian people. But when it comes to war, we must always be ready to respond. And we are.

  • Jim Kube

    I know Putin is causing much of this. He and his old Soviet KGB buddies who never really accepted the end of the USSR. They are largely in charge of Russia today. But the West has some blame also. Our leaders in America have never stopped to think about the 30-50 million Soviet citizens who were killed in the war during 1941-45.

    Yes, Stalin was an evil man; he murdered millions more on top of that, and signed a pact with the Devil Hitler in 1939, carving up Poland. Nevertheless, the Russian people have suffered horribly in land wars over the last thousand years, and have developed a societal form of PTSD from it. They need to feel that they have no threats from outsiders. This is why they largely support Putin’s invasion of eastern parts of Ukraine, including Crimea. They are afraid of the West, especially the USA.

    I’m not justifying that feeling; only expressing it.

  • Stormy_Rebel

Rest assured that such end of days thoughts and emotion will not come to hand as I am sure a way to Mitigate such disaster has been already thought of

  • Crazy Horse

    Putin can’t get over the fact that Russia IS NOT the USSR Soviet Union. Doesn’t matter because he’s finished and has ruined Russia for the time being. Russia needs to get back to being a people’s democratically elected government and completely reset the failure and damage caused by Putin’s regime. Russia has all it needs to be a great country and be recognized as such. It’s hard to believe that in just over one year Putin has destroyed Russia and made it into a North Korea.

    Russia is paranoid and beginning to sweat. Following protocol this is what they do when they get nervous or caught doing something illegal, they start running their mouth. The Kremlin for whatever reason they have going on in their heads think that all other countries should bow down to them and fear them . and that is not going to happen. If Nuclear is their intent then that would be just as devastating to Russia as everyone else. What I am saying is bring it and everyone be prepared for destruction and the U.S. wrath that will follow. We must ask ourselves why Russia is budding up to North Korea and in my opinion is because all other countries are through with Russia so they have to kiss up to the little midget in North Korea for two reason both countries think on the same intelligence level and they are both crazy and misery loves company. ,I survive the 70’s and Woodstock so for many of us during that generation this is a walk in the park. So expect anything and everything that Russia tries to throw our way and it doesn’t hurt to maintain your belief of whatever your faith might be.

    By Putin doing all of this threatening, it is only going to increase the resolve of NATO countries to set up a stronger missile defense system. What Putin does not realize, is that when he launces a nuclear tipped missile, it has to get out Russia before it is knocked out of the sky from where it was launched and blow up there. Spy satellites can pick up launches instantly.

  • Andrew.001

    I see very strange statements in this article. No actual sources of information. Just some assumptions. Baltics, Russian people there, nuclear threat. It’s a kind of paranoid thoughts to make you to be afraid of Russian threat. Are Western nations so easily manipulated by such propaganda? This is a common pattern for all anti-Russian articles and allegations: Ukraine is the first, then theare will be Baltic countries turn and then Poland and other Eastern European countries will be attacked by Russia. So the West is doomed unless it takes anti-Russian measures and steps. Do you really believe in all this?

  • Jim Kube

    Nuclear war? Seriously? In 2015? I thought we got past this.

    The issue at hand, ultimately, is the end of civilization (such as it is), and likely the end of the human race. If we keep going down this well worn path, that’s where we are heading. And soon. Like within a few years, or even just months.

    A general nuclear war between America and Russia is insanity. There would be hundreds of millions killed instantly from heat, blast, and fire; as has been said, the living would envy the dead. Hundreds of millions of survivors would soon die from wounds, burns, and radiation poisoning, within hours or days. Fallout would rain down from the skies, further poisoning people and animals.

    In a matter of weeks, a nuclear winter take hold in the northern latitudes, eventually spreading into the southern lats. The temperatures would plummet; crops would fail, and those crops in the fields would possibly be too radioactive to eat, due to fallout. A further two to three billion would die in the next 24 months, due to starvation, lack of medicines, exposure to extreme cold, etc. The rest of the human race would dwindle to perhaps a few thousand, those with the resources to have found shelter deep underground in sophisticated, well-stocked bunkers.

    Do you want all of your children and grandchildren to die way before their time? Yes, everyone dies eventually- but don’t you want to grow old? Yes, I mean YOU, dear reader. We are now closer to the edge of a precipice than we have been since 1962. I’m too young to recall that two weeks in October- I was only 4- but it had an effect on society that can be called a form of PTSD, in today’s parlance. Nobody was the same by November, as they had been in September.

    I don’t pretend to know of a solution to stop the “war parties” in Russia, or the USA. Both seem to believe that nuclear sabre rattling works as a tool, and some of these folks apparently do think that a full out nuclear exchange is survivable, perhaps even winnable. That is madness.

    Cooler heads have to prevail. We need a JFK; we need a Khrushchev.

    Teddy Cruz may be a Canadian Cuban African alien whose father may have been a Boko Haram member who married a white girl in Kenya and was adopted by his present mother. This is going to be a challenge for Fox Top Trump to prove, but I am sure that he will come up with his African birth certificate. If not, he can hire Sherriff Joe Arapahoe from AZ to find something. In addition, he somehow got into Texas, maybe snuck across the border, but we don’t know if Texas is even a state anymore. They may have seceded to Mexico. Therefore he is ineligible because he no longer lives in the U.S. This will also cancel out Louie Goobles Gohmert to be his VP.

    To say that it is Bush’s fault or Obama’s fault is very short sighted.The destruction of a country is a slow and painful process until the final collapse..The society,the government ,the old way of life that America stood for is about to end. History will give you the answers.

    Its just not true….your country paid a heavy price during WWII….the history books of America my Russian comrade have never incited lies about your country. Stalin and Russia paid the price in lives against Hitler and too helped to save the world against Nazi Germany. Some American scholars also feel that if it were not for Hitler’s decision to attack Russia, Germany may have won the war. So I hope you can see NBAH NBAHOB that America has never incited lies…even back to WWII about your country. Yet, what we DO have,….different than your country, is an open world of information and the ability to garner it from anywhere in the world. That’s the difference between your country and mine. We have access to the world’s information database…while your country has state-run television. We have a CHOICE in the USA, while you do not. I hope this doesn’t upset you, I just wanted to point out that we have had access to Russia’s real history…many even enjoy your cultures and historical pasts….and I hope you can see that its not WE AMERICANS that are blinded….it is with unfortunate discovery….it is within you and your country due to lack of access to information. America has never tried to change the history books, we even collaborate around the world on them…while your country…..again relies on one source…..itself.

    he is right, my drunk friend, Russia is nothing and you all russians are going to pay for your stupid leaders acting like that, threatening everyvody, what exactly is your problem? you invade Ukraine and you think NATO will stay and watch? and now you are the one threatening everybody with nuclear war? to be honest with you i don’t even know why USA is not dropping 100 nukes on you all right now.

  • Thunder warrior

    We promised the Europeans freedom. It would be worse than dishonorable not to see they have it. This might mean war with the Russians, but what of it? They have no Air Force anymore , their
    gasoline and ammunition supplies are low.I’ve seen their miserable
    supply trains;mostly wagons draw by beaten up old hoses or oxen.
    I’ll say this ;the Third Army alone with very little help and with
    damned few casulaties,could lick what is left of the Russians in six
    weeks. You mark my words.Don’t ever forget them. Someday we
    will have to fight them and it will take six years and cost us six
    million lives. General George S. Patton

  • BogdanI

    Russia is the one that killes people and invaded Ukraine and still Russia is the one telling NATO what to do.
    On the contrary my drunk friend, you are the one who should listen to NATO from now on because you russians are not normal, you are primitive people, threatening everybody.

    Latvia is good farming land and Russia used it to feed Moscow in the cold war they invaded Latvia and kept the people on land work in the fields no matter what your profession. Slaves to Moscow so Latvian and Estonian alike hate Russians. Those who argued were shot and their relatives sent to salt mines in Siberia. Not surprisingly is it that fear of Russian threats to invade are every place here in the country I walk in now. I have gathered witness information for my new book.*The Iron Curtain exposed.” If like 1941 the world was at war and took no notice of what Russia was up to they ride again across the border they want no one as witness to the carnage proposed. That is what this is all about.Latvia and the rest of Baltic lands and peoples are venerable and now European so if Russia marches over it is in fact an act of provocation by attack and therefore thus an act of war according to the Geneva Convention rules.Therefore not just NATO allies but the whole world at Putin s door. USA here doing a sterling job of policing.I was UN in Bosnia so I can recall duties. Putin is sly and not that cleaver so beware. Wild dogs have long fangs but we know all that and are prepared.

  • disqus_F2aT6w6ASv

    Russia has threatened to use nuclear force against the United States and its allies if NATO moves more forces into the Baltic states.

    Now that’s interesting. By what stretch of logic can Putin make demands on what is done in the Baltic countries?

    The Baltic countries are not part of Russia (although I did see long lines of Russians crossing the border, by foot, INTO Estonia… maybe to build up the ethnic Russian population?) Therefore, Putin has no control over what goes on there.

    Talk about a Napoleon complex.

    More propaganda trash against the Russians. A bunch of lies and half truths. For starters, it was the West who destabilized the region by organizing a coup to depose a freely elected president while Putin was hosting the Olympics. Our new woreld order is “destabilization”.

    Very similar in fact to the coup we organized in Iran in 1953 to install the Shah and several other coups in the last 50 years. Not to mention the coup in Chile where Allende was assassinated.

    In fact if you want to look for aggression look at NATO’s behavior in the last few years and their aggression in Yugoslavia, Iraq, Afghanistan and Lybia.

    Really can we blame the Russian. I was reading something like over 95% of Russia oil comes through the Ukarine is it not odd that lately all the wars we fight are always centered around oil ? I find it extremely odd. It seems our intentions are to cripple another country financially. When we seek to hurt the people of another country we humiliate them. Even the Russian government is having to reduce pay even the President reduced his own pay. What does this tell people in Russia that America is hurting them.

    When I listen to the news and hear about people in America saying we should go to war with Russia I think to myself what absolute fouls don’t these people know the amount of bombs they have don”t they read books.I’m not for Russia or America because I am for myself I m sick of watching the news to hear about children dying for oil for the elite or for some Jews that are Americans should never trust they have proven to be some of the greatest enemies and terrorist .

    I say let the Russia invade Ukarine have all the oil they want and let America not be torn to pieces . Read the title to this article the people are not Iraq or some little desert country . These people if pushed will drop a bomb can you blame them if they did. I dont

    Sure Russia is a threat, but, in a conventional war.. They would be wiped out in a matter of a year or two. The only thing that they have that could prevent this are their nuclear weapons. That is it.

  • vitrohon

    @ Robert ; Like all Russian trolls , you are trying to frighten us with China . China has NO interest in having a war with the U.S. , especially if it were to help Russia . The U.S. is China’s largest market and trading partner , so to go to war with the U.S. , would be only a bonehead move that only Russia would contemplate ! Another important factor in this equation is ; China , has always had an eye on Siberia , so any war where Russia would be fully engaged in , would
    be a perfect opportunity for China to re-claim Siberia !
    No , If Russia wants a war , she would be pretty much on her own and they themselves know , that they have NO chance , otherwise they would have started already !
    As for the ” huge Russian army ” ; yes it is huge , but it is scattered over a huge territory , it is inefficient , it’s equipment and armament , for the most part , is outdated and it’s moral is nonexistant .
    Lastly , those nuclear strike threats , which Putin pulls out of his arse every so often , frighten the Russians more than anyone else , because they know , if the West would take them seriously , they would OBLITERATE Russia in
    a pre emptive strike !

Same story every time. If you think America has Christian values or is a true promoter of democracy, man you have been fooled. I think Satin is running the show in our land of the free gays.

    Man, if I were president, I would have gone ahead and continue the operation- In other words, Putin is all mouth. Putin does not own the Baltic, nobody does. Therefore, US is allowed in the Baltic and if Russia decided to attack on a knee-jerk reaction, it won’t be just US defending. Other countries, especially NATO countries will fight Russia.

    This also presents another theory. Putin clearly doesn’t want anyone there, so they’re clearly hiding something- This makes it all the more intriguing to find out what the Kremlins are up to.

  • skyscraper007

    Right not perhaps an idiot but a power mongering dictator he is like the many previous Russian leaders dating back thru the last 300 years of the regions existence. International Law established the regions borders, gave sovereignty to these areas so no encroachment of Russias borders is or was being attempted. Putin pushes for a socialist dominated power versus a Democratic led system obviously those regions that broke away from Russia did not favor originally the prior.

  • ???? ??????

    Corey, you will never understand!

  • skyscraper007

    The point is that any outbreak of nuclear war would involve the whole world not just two adversaries. Obviously Putin cares not for the devastation of land and people such actions would create. Smaller countries that have established independence from Russia like Estonia, parts of Georgia, Lithuania and others have a right to defend their borders. Again Putin tries to encroach in these regions , applying political and cultural genocide to remove dissenters to his wishes in favor of reseeding Russian populations thus warranting in his eyes the defense of the Russian people like he has in Crimea , Donestk and Lugansk regions also controlled by his lackie Yanukovitch.

    Putin has been seeding his lackies and puppets into Ukraines infrastructure for a min of 10-15 years making back scene deals with the implanted Ukraine leaders actually traitors to Ukraine who merely filled their pockets with the bribes atypical the lease of the Sevastopol port signed by Yanukovitch. Odd also is it not that Yanuko had Yulia Tymenshenko imprisoned to silence her by claiming she made an illegal gas deal with Putin which actually was within her powers to assure Ukraine would have heat in the dead of winter. Putin caused this chaos also by allowing his Gasprom Company to goudge Ukraine with over-pricing , signed the deal with Yulia then stood back and let Yanukovitch imprison her which served his purposes to maintain control over Ukraines direction. Why the need to try to subvert economic pressures by establishing a Eurasian Market in direct competition with the EU rather than negotiate deals with EU where Putin would have to be concillitory but instead he veers off to dominate the markets .

    Reliable sources have confirmed that america’s nuclear stockpile is far less than most people realise. Studies also show that up to 60% of that diminished stockpile are duds.

  • ARTICLE IS UNTRUE

    She wrote in this article that “exist in the three Baltic states (Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia), where a large percentage of people regard themselves as ethically Russian.”

    Totally UNTRUE. No wonder that her name suggest she is Russian origin.

    So this article could be indeed Russian propaganda to west people, because if you just go to any online source like wikipedia, you would find that in Lithuania there are ONLY 5.8% Russians, and LARGE PERCENTAGE are indeed true LITHUANIANS – 84.1 percent.

    Soviet Union has occupied Lihuania after WW II, and Held country in terror for 50 years. Since then Lithuania is going one way – WEST. No more Russian terror and lies for this country.

    Russia threatened to nuke Denmark, Russia is trying to tell us who can and who cant be a part of what we do. Russia is the one that invaded and annexed territory that belonged to a sovereign nation, Russia is the one that spit in the face of the UN and used military force to change international borders, Russia is the only foreign country that has gone into Ukraine, Russia is the one that’ keeps threatening to Nuke US, Russia is the one that keeps testing other countries airspace with bombers, Unlike Russia, some of the countries in the region have asked the US to send them some troops, Russia is the one on the border of little nations that used to be part of the USSR that could not defend themselves in Russia invaded…….. The only thing the US and the rest of the west has done is call Russia on their bull shit and warned them to back down….the US is not trying to bully anybody, the US and the rest of NATO are doing nothing but putting themselves inbetween Russia and people who are scared of Russia and letting Russia know that he better not think about crossing their borders………no one said the planet was US property…we have never go to war to gain territory and claim something as out own….Russia and China are both making land grabs and bullying small countries and we are defending them……..but don’t get me wrong and act like I am some super over patriotic brainwashed idiot…we are doing nothing but protecting out interests and if protecting our interests involves us defending some small country than so be it………After the cold war we were without a doubt the most powerful military on the planet, it would have taken the combined force of many militaries to even stand a chance. and our economy was many many many times greater than everyone elses….nobody was even close….the power and the wealth that we had, we could have prevented Russia and China from becoming what they are…..Their economies and their militaries grew while we sat back and watched…if we wanted the world that never would have happened….but still, we are in a position to intimidate and do whatever the hell we want to do and until someone can do something other than talk about it that is the way it will remain…..

  • Robert

    Truth Russia is not a little Iraq the Russian Army is huge another thing we have to worry about is the Chinese in the future because they have more oil in the China Sea than probably Saudi Arabi and its seems that many of our wars are in oil rich areas. Its a scary time. The only thing that separates people from starting a war is mere air lets pray that people leave Russia and China alone . I heard McCain mention war with Russia any person that declares war against Russia or China in my opinion is crazy we would lose . We would lose fellow Americans people would be hurt we do not need war. Look at China do they build bases all around us do Russians. We need to leave these enormous war machines alone and build better jobs that actually pay alot of folks are hurting .

    We should be trying to help the giants not go against them. If we try to play world cop in this day of age it will come back to us the technology is just to vast god knows our system can be penetrated by outsiders.

Wake up lad and check records before you tackle a British military man who knows more than you will ever know about what Russia is up to. I have eyes and ears in Latvia and Russia too .People inside city limits of Moscow are terrified to speak out.

Oh, they have a lot of dirt on their hands, there is no doubt about that. They’ve made a huge mess in the Middle East. But the choice between them and Russia is no choice at all, especially here in Europe.

    Russia is a bully, plain and simple. And nobody likes a bully in their backyard. Sooner Russians realize this, the better. And if you want me to change my view, you should write more convincingly. All I see is pathetic Kremlin propaganda written in abysmal English, with no fact as to why “Russia is the only hope for the world today”. In fact, looking at the facts on the ground, Russia seems to be hell bent on plunging us into another disaster of global proportions.

    Those post-soviet states do not want you. Leave them alone and leave Ukraine alone, for God’s sake.
    They are scared of Russia, with good reason. I have seen the Russian Occupant video. It is garbage. The Ukraine version is accurate. THEY DON’T WANT YOU! THEY JOINED NATO TO BE PROTETED FROM YOU! RUSSIA HAS JUST INVADED AND ANNEXED TERRITORY FROM A SOVEREIGN COUNTRY. MIND YOUR OWN GODDAM BUSINESS, FIX YOUR OWN PROBLEMS! Then maybe other countries will want to make deals with you.
    Why does Russia need to threaten its neighbours with military force? Nobody is threatening Russia, despite Putin’s silly propaganda. The civilized world does not function that way. America does not threaten Canada when we don’t go along with them (which happens more often than you would know).

    Russia is acting like a big bully who thinks he can take whatever he wants. Is that how the world should be? Does might make right? Putin threatens nuclear war more often than Kim Jung Un. If Russian men are like that it is no surprise that Russian women are fleeing to other countries (thank you).

    Sounds like unsubstantiated drivel. Show me a direct quote from a credible source supporting what is stated in this article.

    Russia does not want a nuclear war with the United States. Doing so would mean mutual destruction. Putin is not an idiot. This article is nothing but fear mongering.

    I am sorry but you are obviously not one of those normal americans who should evacuate. I am not saying Russians are good but they are lot better than Americans. Innocent victim count says everything…You pushed Nato borders further to Russia for years…what did you except to happen. We people are animals, we fight for territory and if we feel threaten we respond. Although Putin is mild version of dictator(he was elected every time though), he did what was expected of him. If you stopped expanding Nato nothing would happen. Although you have every right to do so, you should have known what would happen…maybe you did but decided to do so anyway. You vote for old warmongering senators who are one foot in the grave, and let them decide future for the young. They don’t care about you. They have the agenda, who knows what it is, but it’s bad. You said Russia would be in stone age. USA and world have a lot more to lose if Russians drop bombs on you. USA has been mover in tech, medicine and generally science for decades now. Destruction of US would be disaster. Also, everything you have is easily accessible to nukes. If they destroy Yellowstone or drop bomb near coast of California that would be disaster and you would hardly recover. Russia is enormous. Their main resource is oil and gas…there is nothing you can strategically destroy that they wont recover from very fast. It’s just plain fields of snow. They will rise very fast and you wont. Be smart and vote for normal people. Don’t bring world to sh#t because old warmongering fools want to satisfy their ego

  • corey

    lol….Russia is a country full of cowards. Russia is resorting to tactics used by another weak country, North Korea. Russia is resorting to nuclear threats and that is a pretty obvious sign that your government is fully aware of the fact that they are up against something they can not defeat with convential weapons…nukes are a last resort. its Pathetic..USSR collapsed and Russia is but a shadow of the USSR……Russia is no the military powerhouse that the USSR was and you need to realize that because when push comes to shove, Russia is a regional power at best with virtually no means to projecting their power outside of their region using outdated technology and whose only real deterrant is their nuclear weapons and I can promise you that the only reason Russia is anywhere near Ukraine’s border is because of their nukes…..keep in mind that if your government tries to use a nuke, it means that they are willing to sacrifice the lives of every man, woman and child to prove a point and believe me…..the USA has just as manu nukes as Russia does, and our are already in Russia back yard so if Russia launches one Putin wont be around long enough to know if it hit its target….instead of talking though, why doesn’t the almight putin see what happens when he tries step over the border into a NATO country

    What independence? Soviet Union collapsed and it’s member states went their own way. Even in the the times of Soviet Union Russian SFSR, Latvian, Estonian and Lithuanian SSRs were separate members of USSR. Russia dominated everyone, but according to the letter of the law they were not uniform territory. Just like Yugoslavia was comprised of six republics. Of course, the latter was a lot more decentralized.

    What could have Putin done then? Nothing, because USSR was over and done economically. And it was Gorbachev who presided over the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Yeltsin came later. And Putin? He was Yeltsin’s protege and a member of his government.

To spread democracy? If we did not win, who did? Our real goal was to go over there and topple their governments and replace them with Pro-western governments…and that is exactly what we did. Spreading democracy has nothing to do with anything. we took out their governments and replaced them and that is what we wanted to do….so say we lost because we did not officially do what we said we wanted to do, but we still accomplished what we really wanted to accomplish and even today we can still come and go as we please and do whatever the hell it is that we feel like doing…

Don’t make me laugh. They would be first to roll into Russian Far East if Putin started nuclear war.

    Russians mistake restraint for weakness. No one in Europe wants a war, so everyone is careful. U.S. doesn’t want war with Russia as well, so they are acting the same. But push someone too far and they will respond. Learn some history. Putin is acting like Hitler in 1930s. He pushed and Europe gave way. Then he pushed some more and Europe appeased him. And then he wanted some more but went too far and straight into disaster. Well, Baltic states are Putin’s Danzig and Poland. He already got his Anschluss and Sudetenland.

We have the same GDP as Russia from one quarter as many people. And we have the freedom to say and write almost anything, protest, start a business. We are virtually free of corruption. I have no fear of being robbed. I have yet to meet a bad policeman. Putin sees this better way, too. But Putin does not want Russia to be a part of the world. He wants to control it and he wants to control you. I wish you could see this better way, but Russians have never experienced it. We have the rule of law.

    Why do you talk of events of 75 years ago. America and Japan are friends, have been for decades. In WWII they were hated enemies and during war terrible things happen. Stalin starved millions of Ukrainians to death a few years after America had fed 11 million every day for 2 years in the Volga Basin.
    Today America is friendly with almost all democracies. The countries on Russia’s borders have invited NATO defense forces because they have experienced Russian occupation, they see it recurring, and they hated it.
    America has done some terrible things in the past. So what. Putin is doing terrible things today. No European country has annexed territory since Hitler. The parallels are amazing.

The same in Crimea, Kruschchev gave the territory to Ukraine in 1954, if the population didn’t want to be a part of Ukraine they could always return to Mother Russia, but the Russia they would have returned to was too OPPRESSIVE as it is today!

  • Martin Macdonald

    When I was there I found Russians to be guarded, but ultimately very friendly. But I know many of the evil things Putin has done. He is better than Yeltsin, but that does not exhonorate him. Our news does not speak of the good that Putin has done, that is the nature of news, to not speak of good. Mostly, our news does not mention Russia at all. It is more concerned with plane crashes, Obama, ISIS, Kim Khardassian.
    And I Google “Strelkov admits” and I see that without Putin’s actions the war in Ukraine would have “fizzled” and 7,000 or 10,000 people would be alive who are not. And I fear Putin is taking Russia down a dark path. He is concentrating political power to himself, and that never ends well. In the west we do not trust politicians so we divide their powers among different branches. We support a free press which acts as a critic of government and a countervail against its power. And our legal officers are vastly less corrupt than yours.
    I hope Russia gets a true multi-party government some day where, as our Prime Minister says of the opposition, “We may be opponents, we are never enemies.”
    Anyways, I don’t really believe he will bother me or my wife and I would like to visit again. I must learn your crazy language. Thank you for your welcome.

  • notdumb

    Dear Polina and valuewalk

    Peskov coments trashes your “evil Putin” article. It should have not been included. You should remove it, and while you’re at it try adding these facts. US plutocrats dropped nuclear bombs on Japan for hitting the US equivalent of Crimea. US plutocrats have trashed agreements made with Russia to stop their aggressive military expansion towards Russia. US plutocracy have currently Russia surrounded and ready to invade like they did to Iraq where they committed one of their many genocides for resources. US plutocrats conquered Ukraine, Crimea’s annexation was a reaction to it.

    In a conventional war, Russia would not be able to stand up to NATO for very long. Russia’s borders are too big to defend. It’s population center is too concentrated. They have no aircraft carrier. The navy has no amphibious landing craft. Russia has no missile defense capability.

    To protect the Russian who lwill not get out of Latvia? How about the thousands of Russians who live in Brooklyn New York USA. Germany and England who would all tell Russia to leave them alone. Those who stay in Latvia will not integrate or even speak the language yet are upset they are not accepted as citizens? If Putin comes over that border the first thing done must be to remove all spies as under the articles of war is the proper thing to do. The Baltic is Europe and historically always owned by the Latvian peoples whom have put up with invaders because they are peaceful and unarmed. Russia loves a soft belly and a walk over and will not face NATO without real worry. Putin is a liar and his people must surely see it themselves.

  • tonystarkAJ

    There is a lesson to be learned for sure. However, the situation is different in a lot of ways. Germany was a dominant power with a growing and diverse economy. Their military could stomp over most of Europe (and did) and most of Europe knew that. Political leadership was tired from World War I, which saw MILLIONS of lives lost, and did not want to lose millions more. Russia is strong, to be sure, but they are a second tier power on the way down, not up, thanks to Putin’s leadership. Their population is shrinking, half the nation are alcoholics, and their military, while stronger than small potatoes like Ukraine, is no match for France or Britain, let alone the US. Our current actions would be mirrored by any US President in office. We have no treaty with the Ukraine which requires any action on our part. There is a red line in the sand over which Putin cannot cross, and that line is called Nato. And most Americans agree with me on this. Even with no treaty with the Ukraine, we have still provided increasing support for Ukraine with each move Putin makes. Also with each move he makes, the sanctions are increased. So his actions have consequences, unlike Hitler who was given a free pass with no sanctions and no support for the nations he conquered. The weak link is Europe, not the US, and many of the US actions have had to be slowed down in order to achieve consensus, which is far more important than unilateral action, as per our actions in Iraq. It is Europe who live next door to Russia, not the US. And the US is continuing to push Europe along reluctantly, as the stakes are raised. Putin IS a bit crazy, since Russia’s economy has already lost hundreds of billions of dollars thanks to sanctions, and he still keeps doing it. But make no mistake. The moment ANY action is made, even small actions (his threats notwithstanding) against ANY Nato ally, Europe and the US will be united in action against Putin, and it will come down like a bag of hammers.

    This man Putin is really mad. He knows Latvia is accepted EU. NATO our guardian must protect us from the peril that is at Latvian borders. As a large percentage of public are in fact ex pats from Britain, Japan,USA and far west it is only a few hundred Russians whom cling to Latvia as enemy. We want only peace and Putin is s land grabber with no legal hold on what is a republic and a European nation. Latvia is s free land of the LETT tribes with Swedish roots and German ways yet as always only real Latvian from thousands of years ago in their own land. Russia invaded ,tortured ,murdered and now want the same thing again.No Latvian will stand for it. Can the world not see the way that Russia works, Can not work the land as Russia owns millions of acres full off mineral wealth but wants the Baltic as slaves to do their work as it was in 1941-1962. when children taken from their beds and parents shot in front of them when thousands of Latvians vanished into Siberia slat mines and never came back.My wifes family suffered hard and like all Latvians hates Russians through vast experience.

  • Martin Macdonald

    I’ve seen this comment before, from another troll name.
    Look, the countries bordering Russia have ASKED the US and other NATO countries to help defend them against Russia because they have experienced decades of Russian occupation and they did not like it.

    Funny how the russian trolls say we in the west are brainwashed when their leader is busily gaining control of all media in Russia. All major TV is controlled by Putin and most Russians get their news only by TV. Dear Russian people: Why do you think that Putin is trying to control all the media? So he can tell you the truth? So he can present different sides to different events? No western leader can control even one TV station. This weak Putin closed the Tartar TV station in Crimea. He harasses Dozhd TV constantly. He has put his director in charge of Echo Radio. He has forced out the creators of VKontacte and Klassmates, the two most popular social media sites. He has opposition speakers and journalists beaten, jailed, and killed. All this in order to bring the truth to you? His journalists will think for you, you do not need to use your brain. He has stamped out (ie, murdered or Imprisoned) almost all opposition. He will never be content as he is becoming as paranoid as his idol, Stalin. All power resides in Putin. He has convinced you that formerly friendly nations are your blood-thirsty enemies. America, Ukraine, Europe, even Canada is on your hate list. We want to enslave you? Bringing cheap, tasty fast-food and providing jobs in American companies is a bad thing?
    Russia ranks 148th of 180 countries on the Press Freedom Index, behind Zimbabwe and Burma. And that ranking will drop this year. Corruption indexes place Russia similarly.
    Most Russians have never travelled outside Russia. When they do travel it is usually to Turkey. Most speak only Russian so they are easy prey for Putin’s never-ending propaganda.
    But we are the ‘brainwashed’ ones?

  • Colonel G

    If there is a lesson to be learned from history, it is that to do nothing in the face of aggression only insures more aggression. Putin is not crazy, to the contrary, he is an experienced and daring gambler. He can sense weakness (no real trick when dealing with most of the West and Obama in particular) and will push right up to the limits. Hitler had the same sense and faced a similiar opposition i.e. the “peace at any price” crowd. But today’s Russia, though well armed, is not the old USSR and is near her critical stratigic limits. Russia’s economy is imploading, her navy is a mere shadow of its former self, her air force is good but has definite stratigic and tactical limitations, and the army needs modernization and expansion if they expect to take on NATO. Of course, Putin knows all this, but pushes anyway because our leadership appears both weak and inept. He will continue to push as long as we put up with his nonsense. At some point our leadership will improve and Putin will have to call it quits or risk Mother Russia in a war he can not win.

    There goes the Midget again to use his nukes and we know that moron is not suicidal so Putin take your nukes and stuff them up your A-s as far as stating tension in the Baltic like he did in the Ukraine maybe it’s time we give the Midget a taste of his own medicine and arm the Muslims on his border they would love nothing better and start blowing up and killing Russians and you know that ISIS will join them,lets light up the Caucasian Region again it will give the Midget something something to keep him occupied.

To keep the world in order we have to look as if we are foolish while we are trying to keep the peace. War and fighting is not the answer right now but reasoning is. Obama and his advisers have failed to reason like the way George W. Bush used to. I never saw Bush in any conflict with Putin but instead they had a common interest to keep the peace of the world.

The Israelis could easily kick their ass, think that aint in the cards. They left the keys in their Tanks when they fled the country. All Vodka talk, and why in the world would their kids ever want to go back to Russia ? Putin will retire in California or New York like Gorby, why would he bomb it ? Assinine

  • evrika105

    Go for political science classes too to see who was a bad guy this whole time. They teach you openly about this without any hesitation. Unbelievable.

  • Archibald_Bomwitz

    If Conservatives were in charge there would have been no stealing of Crimea and war by Russia against Ukraine!

  • evrika105

    You don’t need to listen to politicians and their tales! All you need to do is to dig the history of each country: the pattern is all the same. Watch what the US looks now and what it was before. Open up your eyes. I just left the US where I have lived for 15 years and never regretted. Its a white slavery country. You work all day to pay bills, cops shoot at people, education sucks, food is full of GMO, people are angry and jealous, no fun there at all….

  • Carrie Barber

    Just like Russia does now.

    Then why do you read it? Is it part of your work at Putin’s troll factory?

  • Ioannis Paleologos

    No actually duffus the Russian economy is expected to grow by a small percentage. GROW duffus. Check on it on financial Yahoo you duffus. But I think the loser you are you do not have a dime to think about reading financial Yahoo. What about your sanctions hmm? Whoa weren’t they supposed to destroy the Russian economy hey? Guess why they did not nor will they do it ever. You smarty guy the best in the world! Ha ha ha.

  • Carrie Barber

    I’m not blind, I was smart enough to leave Russia 16 years ago. You’re the one that’s dumb for believing all of Putin’s lies.

  • Jeff Parkerpetersen

    The fact that Yahoo posted this on their homepage just shows what a TOTALLY CORRUPT organization it is. You can’t believe ANYTHING on here.

  • Carrie Barber

    Go take you some ESL classes.

  • stephen koludrovic

    Americans love to assassinate their own presidents, So what happened this time? Did you guys turn chicken??

  • evrika105

    I think you meant YOUR president turned the US into a psychotic country. Ppl go nuts there, lots of normal ppl leave the country. You are so blind.

  • stephen koludrovic

    one of the conditions placed on all eastern European countries that want to join the EU is that they have to join up in NATO..

  • Carrie Barber

    haha…get Putin out of your mouth and go take ESL classes before you get kicked out of his troll factory. I’ve been living in the US for 16 years so I’m sure I know more about American slang than you do punk. You’re the kind of idiot that’s giving the Russian people a bad name.

    Did an American idiot said that by the name Mc Insane? Yeah the American loser of Vietnam. Even with armor, airforce dominating the skies and immediate air support the Vietnamese still beat the crap out of him and the great (sic) american army. What a loser. A gas station that has far superior space technology than usa and a 1000yo nation with a great civilization compared to a barely 200yo american turd that already started going down the tubes. Yeah BTW duffus talking about uneducated. Read about SWIFT. Russia will never get thrown out of it without SWIFT getting destroyed. Find out about it moron. Google it duffus. Google it. Ha ha ha.

  • Carrie Barber

    Ah!…another worthless Russian that works at Putin’s troll factory lol.

  • Bob

    There is no need for war though, this is ridiculous. I don’t like the fact that the US govt doesn’t seem to give a s##t about its people but I don’t like the fact that Russia is bullying or land grabs. I think there are bad parts to both sides, but this definitely comes from leaders on both sides. The people are all just along for the ride. Sad.

    “The Soviet days” were amazing.
    We had everything phat america had except putty and ikea which was bad anywway.

    I was born and raised in Russia so don’t try to give me a history lesson on it.

  • Brian A

    Have you ever been to Russia or even met a Russian? During the Soviet days I would have agreed with you, but I know and have worked with Russians who are very bright people. Their scholastic achievements at the high school level are higher than anything the US high school system can produce. So please comment based on factual information and not some brainwashed narrative fed to you. Oh I forgot you probably are a product of the US education system.

  • Jackson Rjakanov

    English is my second language, forgive me american poser.

    Sounds to me like she’s from Ukraine and she is pissed at the Russians and posting this blog to stir up the idiots so they will write stupid post blaming Obama to feel good about themselves. I don’t speak Russian but for those who do. Have you heard Putin say any of the things she is attributing to him ? Personally I think Putin is very busy trying to find a decent suit. Who is Putin’s tailor anyway , he should have had him shot.

  • Carrie Barber

    Did they not teach you ESL classes before they let you go to work at Putin’s troll factory?

  • Jon Peters

    haha Russia isn’t all that scary if they were why haven’t they invaded the US if their so scary.

  • Carrie Barber

    Why I use carrie barber is none of your business and with your limited English I’m sure it would confuse your pea size brain even more.

    Oh great worthless degrees. I have a degree in mathematics, a degree in physics and a degree in engineering. And as far as Greeks are concerned. The west is still barbarian she was too brute to get civilized. She only took what she would use to dominate the weaker others and she created fascism, colonialism, communism and almost destroyed the world twice. You are clueless about Aristotelian logic and Greek civilization. It is intrinsically eastern not western. But you would have no clue about that. Your degrees indicate that. As far as debating is concerned you are already biased and under educated. Besides there is no room here to develop full arguments. Also your “facts” are a joke.

  • Jon Peters

    hmm I see it Russia invaded and took over Ukraine we and Europe sanctioned that move. I also see a lot of the communist countries trying to flex their muscles like china wants to own the south china sea. Russia wants their land back, and N. korea trying to have a voice

  • grumpyolman

    Hey, look! Indiana has passed a gay-hating law. Meanwhile, our POTUS took it upon himself to practically “give” Iran nuclear weapons, without ANY Congressional oversight or what a majority of Americans deem foolish. Russia may SEEM like the enemy, but the REAL enemy is radical Islam and an administration that caters to it. Everyone has been so caught up in Ferguson, gay rights, Black lives matter, mysterious airline crashes, and everything else that they didn’t notice that this administration has been quietly reducing OUR nuclear, chemical, and biological stockpiles. In addition, they have “replaced” many high ranking military leaders across the service spectrum for somewhat questionable motives. Wake up and do some research instead of worrying about who Paris Hilton’s next BFF is.

    @ baldwin, little john you got some problems if you think obama /the Kenyan knows what he’s doing.

    Yeah blah blah blah by a frightened american loser. One thing is true Crimea and the Eastern Russian territories of pukraine became back part of Russia as they always were before they were given away by Russia for reasons not clear or applicable today or before they were snatched away from Russia by western interests. They will be from now on part of Russia for ever and ever and unto the ages of ages amen to the detriment of the American losers and their paid lackeys the pukrainian bastards. Only an idiot (and that immediately is satisfied by most americans) would believe that Crimea, Odessa, Kherson, Kiev and most of pukraine all the way to the Dnieper river is not Russian. The Europeans know it already very well but they don’t have the balls to admit it.

    I have two undergraduate degrees in Political Science and Economics. I studied Foreign Policy during the Cold War. I also have a degree in Law. I can see you have used argument ad hominem numerous times throughout your comments. You still refuse to answer my questions. Which tells me that in spite of your “Greek” name, you know little or nothing about Aristotelian Logic and valid argumentation. Or debate. Sad. A Greek who doesn’t even know the methods taught by the one philosopher who gave rise to Western Civilization through logic and reasoning.
    How utterly pathetic.
    Please do not write me anymore. It hurts my brain to read your nonsense . . .

  • steve

    This is what happens when African American voters didn’t listen a damn word what Obama said during his campaign. They voted for Obama for one reason CAUSE HES BLACK LIKE ME! You see George Bush and the Republican party really do care about our world and protecting America. It was George Bush who installed the Missile defense system all over eastern Europe. But when Obama got sworned into office day one he removed the Missile defense system. African American voters are really stupid. If Black democrats really care about you why didn’t they indicte police officers who kill black children? Sure Democrats care about you.. Sure they do,, You really think Hillary is gonna make things fair and equal to women? THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU PULL THAT LEVER DOWN FOR THAT WITCH! She doesn’t care about women’s rights all she cares about is being in that oval office and screw N.O.W over just like Obama and Eric Holder screwed their own people over jobs and cops beating them and killing them. At least Martin Luther King cared about his own people AND HE WAS A REPUBLICAN! Abe Lincoln freed African Americans from slavery AND HE WAS REPUBLICAN. Ronald Reagan signed Martin Luther Kings birthday into a national holiday AND HE WAS REPUBLICAN! Democrats could care less about African Americans . Sure they’re give you welfare,food stamps and free housing THATS THE TRICK THEY MAKING YOU SLAVE VOTERS TO KEEP YOU RE-ELECTING THEM!! Its like a used car salesman laughing all the way to the bank cause they made a sucker out of you! THATS WHAT DEMOCRATS ARE..YOUR SUCKERS! So you got two choices Vote Republican or stay home and don’t vote. If you don’t like the GOP then DONT VOTE! So that way the GOP would be looking after America,The World and you!

  • john Baldwin

    It’s all part of the plan you idiot. you think it’s messed up because you think there’s a difference between a liberal and a conservative. The things you read in the news are designed to make you think stupid and your post is proof they have succeed . The conservative and liberal politicians and the right wing and left wing media are owned by the corporations and paid to keep you stupid and divided and you blame Obama. Obama knows what he’s doing. It’s you that don’t have a clue.

  • Ioannis Paleologos

    USA is lucky Russia was around in WWII. Otherwise the nazzis would have eaten her alive. Russia is the only reason that nazzis were defeated. The Bear beat the crap out of them and she will do it again even if the barbarian visigoths are allied with the americans. The Bear will maul the americans together with the Visigoth barbarians and they both know it. That is why they stay put and only threaten with loud noise from safe distance. Ha ha ha.

    The F35 is a joke also because it is technologically inferior. It shows what great American ingenuity is all about. When things get tough the idiots mess up. America typifies this phrase.

    If Russia launches nukes they will also get nukes back! …. Is like committing suicide for your people.
    By the way the United States has 4,804 Nuclear warheads, Russia has 4,480 Nukes, the U.K has 225, France has 300, Israel has 80. I really don’t see Russia at an advantage here. Plus if you just take the Unites States has nukes all over the world to come at you! Remember there are U.S bases even coming out of your A$$.

  • Tomas

    You know whats funny? Is like they don’t know or they are stupid to understand that the U.S and NATO allies have tons of Nukes too. Is like if they launch nukes they will also get nukes back! …. Is like committing suicide for your people.

  • otaybob

    Yeah. me too. I had hoped that when Gorbachev and Yeltsin were president that the U S and Russia could, if not become friends, at least not be enemies. And, perhaps we missed a good opportunity to do that. We kind of ignored Russia when we no longer feared them. Funny, but Reagan and Gorbachev seemed to have a good relationship. Too bad Poo tin wants to be another Hitler. Ironic that Russia and the U S defeated Germany. Now, it could be Germany and the U S that has to defeat Russia. If it becomes necessary. And, of course if we get a president with brains AND a pair. Obama is a used car salesman., period. He’s a salesman and he lies like a rug. He sure sold a lot of Americans a bill of goods. And, many of the morons still think he is a good president. I guess they are content to sell their country down the river for a monthly government check.

  • Ioannis Paleologos

    As I said idiot there are several Russian educated engineers in the states because they are far better educated than the American idiots. They came for graduate school and the american retards would lick their shoes and suck their winnie to keep them here. There are not many American born engineers because your country is one of the top in stupidity. There are many reasons they do not go back to Russia. One is greed and immorality that your worthless country has plenty off. The standard of living in Russia is pretty good if not as good as in the states. But the difference is not that big. Only uneducated morons like you that they did not travel further away from their village they grew up to see the world (america has plenty of those) think that the standard of living in the states is 1000% better. You moron do not even know what that means. This, even the size of your number indicates your village stupidity because you are a typical american ignoramus. The states is more ahead financially speaking because of the financial system in place and the time that it had to develop. Russia hopefully will not reach such a worthless cultural level but she will reach a financial condition (in addition to being far better educated than the americans that she already is) as good as in the states. At that time you guys will be toast because you will have nothing to compete with. This time is coming fast. Maybe you will reach it sooner in case you make the mistake to mess up with them and they annihilate you on the battlefield. Like it seems they will do pretty convincingly looking at your worthless and joke pasture you present in the world today.

  • Ing

    There is nothing “illegal” about Russia’s repatriating Crimea and Ukraine. It has been said that the man who is the strongest gets to make the laws, and gets to be the authority. Putin has all the power, which makes him the supreme authority. A weakling who tries to tell the strong man he is wrong will soon experience the law of the jungle. Just look at how the entire world has it’s eyes and ears on Putin, the greatest leader the world will ever know. Look at all the frightened imbeciles talking trash here in an attempt to allay their anxiety. Even your pathetic god bows in humility at the feet of almighty Putin. All hail!

  • Yuri

    In 1991 Russia had 90% of Soviet Union military capability. Russia has always was the last barrier to the absolute world domination by the USA. If USA could they would destroyed Russia. Only strong nuclear forces has saved Russia from that.

    This article is another piece of propaganda filled with lies. It passes an opinion for a fact. Russia never threatened nuclear war to drive NATO out of Baltics.

  • lancemh

    I notice you did not answer my questions other than make some statements without backing it up. I will concede one point. The F-35 is a waste. Not because of the lack of technology. Because the politicians who receive contributions from the corporations who built it will give them endless funding not matter how incompetent they are. You give anybody endless money and they will steal it. Just ask Putin and his thugs. They couldn’t make it on their own so they just steal it from the national treasury or the business owners.
    And as you pointed out, there are some Russian engineers in the states. Why don’t they go back and work for the Motherland? Because they know the standard of life is a 1000% better and they can learn more advanced technological methods.

    Putin is either bluffing or a madman. No sane man could believe Russia would survive a nuclear war. At best the survivors struggle terribly in a post-apocalyptic world.

    Actually no; America never threatened nuclear war during the
    Cuba crisis. It was more:

    JFK: Nikita bi7c4 you got nukes in Cuba. Get them out or we will invade Cuba.

    JFK orders a blockade
    and the chess pieces in place for the invasion.

    NK: John if you invade Cuba that will be an act of nuclear
    war and we will nuke you.

    JFK: OK bi7c4 nuclear war it is!

    JFK orders America
    to be ready for a Russian first strike, and continues the plan for the invasion.

    NK: You know I really don’t want a nuclear war, and the nukes
    in Cuba is because of your bay of pigs and the nuke in Turkey and Italy, if you
    remove them and agree never to invade Cuba, we’ll remove the nukes from Cuba.

    FK: Oh ye—you f’ng bi7c4 stop interrupting, me and Norma are
    busy, when she done I check with the advisers to see if something could be
    worked out.

    Just a little heads up, even though it should be obvious. Any relatives that may live in the west can easily leave at the appropriate time. Isn’t Twitter marvelous?

  • The Joker

    Even Dick Cheney stated publicly that he didn’t trust Putin- This is from a Playboy magazine interview in the most recent issue. Yes…I read it for the articles!

  • Yuri

    Bravo Ed !

  • Dejan Borjanic

    This is nonsense-Russia have enough conventional weapons to react and wipe out any treat from Nato…and-what if Russia plant some rockets on Cuba or Nicaragua-just like Nato does in Baltics…?!

  • The Joker

    How can NATO invade the Baltics if the Baltic states are willing NATO members??? The citizens of the Baltics have been greeting the NATO/US troops with open arms during the recent military drills- There are pictures all over the net that show this-

  • john Baldwin

    Why ? Just to make Russia look bad ? That’s childish.

  • 00411392

    Not even Putin is this mad or stupid. An all out nuclear war would be the end of EVERYONE. Not just the West not just Russia. He’s just making empty threats now because he doesn’t like the way the West is C-blocking.

    I don’t believe there is a single person on Earth who’s stupid enough to start a nuclear war.

  • AJ

    What?

  • Yusuf

    And then what are you going to do? Fire photon torpedoes?

  • The truth

    You make it sound like the “proud sons of Russia” are a bunch of rapists-

  • dale brandner

    Earth to Putin. We will bury you.

    It wasn’t Hitler who couldn’t be trusted. It was the British, French , Russia and Poland. It was them who went back on their word and didn’t honor the Treaty of Versailles. They didn’t disarm as the treaty required , Hitler did . They refused to give back German lands as the treaty required. Hitler even went along with that. The problem was that the Allies wanted to dismember Germany Hitler refused. History is not always what the reality was. The Allies did not want a strong Germany , that’s why world war two started.

  • Magnum G.I.

    Tell me Elroy, you get paid with Vodka or Peas? Yep, Putin is so smart and an effective leader that he’s crippling the country’s economy. I bet you have a shirtless Putin poster who’s wrestling a bear hanging from your bedroom wall.

    Idiot. Please do the right thing and go an hero.

  • Ioannis Paleologos

    Russia can build these ships with no problem whatsoever. But idiots like you would not know it. Would you? You have no idea that such deals have political dimensions not just technological ones. Keep praying the Russians will not drop you out of the ISS you duffus. You do not lead and are behind them in space technology by miles. As far as you naval pos technology it looks more and more like the toy F35 flying buses that you are wasting your stupid brains and money for. Russia has better engineers than you by many miles. That is why a lot of them are already in the states. Stealing the jobs from the American idiots like you and creating their technology. Which of course the Russians know all about it. But the best and most patriotic of them stay in Russia. The greedy ones stay in your worthless country and waste themselves in your stupid culture. Ha ha ha.

  • teedub

    What happened to the Hikdabeast’s reset button?

  • If Russia wants nuclear war, let’s get it on! Do you want to live forever?

  • teedub

    Maybe but, they are drunk on vodka always.

  • lancemh

    See. You are as stupid as Putin. Wall Street finances the vast majority of Russian oil projects. And the Russian oil companies have had to partner up with American oil companies to learn our technology. Cutting off Wall Street is like cutting your nose off in spite of your face as the old adage says.
    Why do you think the Russian economy is in a free fall, and they are having to tap their currency reserves? Why is the Ruble only worth 40% of what is was a year ago? Because they cannot borrow from Wall Street to finance their projects, or refinance their national bonds, or do anything. You bit off your own nose. You can have Crimea and Donbass. You broke it. You own it. Good luck financing that rebuilding project or drilling for gas and oil without Wall Street. Russian oligarchs are pooping down their pants legs right now as I type.
    What a moron . . .

  • Ed Johnson

    No worries. You will be overrun by the mongols in short order.

  • Nighthawk 572

    He wants to pull the same stunt on the Baltic nation, NATO troops would prevent that.

  • John

    Russia is highly educated ranking 12th in the world in 2014, where the U.S.A. is ranked 18th. The reason why the U.S ranks so low is because poor high school graduation rates and have weak early childhood education programs. I did not know Russia was still so highly educated after the soviet collapse. The ministry of education has done well educating the Russian people. There is no communism just a strong leader in the eyes of the Russian people who has almost all news outlets under his control through the control of oligarchs. Russia has been a police state for hundreds of years, It has had lots of secret police and intelligence organizations in it’s history to quell unrest and possible rebellion by the Russian people.

  • dennismcbk

    I repeat my earlier comments regarding Russia & Putin: F….k Putin and Russia. Pathetic gangsters. They want nuclear war let’s go to it.

  • Ioannis Paleologos

    Russia can build these ships with no problem whatsoever. But a retard like you would not know it. Would you? You idiot have no idea that such deals have political dimensions not just technological ones. Keep praying the Russians will not drop you out of the ISS you retard. You follow and are behind them in space technology by miles.

    FFS, why haven’t cut them off swift yet?

  • AJ

    HAHAHA! I can’t wait for Russia to attack Europe and North America!

  • john Baldwin

    The world is standing up against Putin, that is what he is complaining about. He sees the world as being anti Russian.

  • fungusthebogeyman

    During the so called “cold war” the nuclear option was not viable. But this not that time. It is now 2015 and everything has changed. USA has lost it’s edge and all the military studies have shown conclusively that Russia will destroy the usa in 30 minutes, and that’s not even figuring in the help it will get from China and other allies. The US has sadly become cancerous, and Putin is the surgeon who will remove the cancer.

  • Fedya Oduvanchikov

    Don’t pretend to be friend. Russia has only one real friend – its army. The author is biased and I don’t want to know why. It was rhetorical question.
