Re: an historical precedent?

Based upon that prehistoric precedent; I therefore wonder whether the Russian Federation will eventually have to sell off Siberia to the Chinese? Why do people keep saying that Russia is bankrupt?

Hypocritical and egregious? Where do you get the funny impression from that socialism means equality of wealth?
Do a search for "inequality" and see who bangs on about it. Go ahead, we'll wait.

Re: Putin is overmatched and frightened

Arms exports are important but do not determine the level of economic success of a country. For the last period concerned, Germany saw its arms exports decrease 14%, about twice as much as the decrease in arms exports by Russia. The difference is that arms aren't Germany's number two export. For Ru...

Re: Trump wants Arab allies to replace US troops in Syria

1. It's rank stupidity for non-Muslim entities to put non-Muslims on ME battlefields in futile attempts to prevent Muslims from killing Muslims. UMM... are you aware that there are long term political implications to who wins a war - even in the ME? Some possible outcomes are better for our Western...
