Re: Lindsey Graham on Putin's wanted list

LOL, Putin can have him. Aw. You don’t like Republicans. While I do have a low opinion of today's Republican Party, I said that because Lindsey Graham is especially noxious. Although I'll admit I couldn't help but appreciate that his response was 'See you in the Hague!' (Even though I know that wil...

Re: Toqaev 'Appreciates' Lukashenka's 'Joke' Proposal For Kazakhstan To Join Russia-Belarus Union

You may say the same has happened in other former colonial powers, but while most of them are just tolerated in countries like the UK and France, in Portugal they have fully integrated. Countries like the UK, where the current Prime Minister, Mayor of London, and First Minister of Scotland are all ...

Re: Toqaev 'Appreciates' Lukashenka's 'Joke' Proposal For Kazakhstan To Join Russia-Belarus Union

As you well know, that's a distinction without a difference, which is why the people who were dominated by the Soviet Union harbour ill will towards Russia and not the other constituent 'republics' of the USSR. But then, given the hilarious nonsense you peddle about Angolans being a happy part of th...

Toqaev 'Appreciates' Lukashenka's 'Joke' Proposal For Kazakhstan To Join Russia-Belarus Union

https://www.rferl.org/a/kazakhstan-russia-belarus-union-joke/32432874.html And apparently, Tokayev actually said that he "rates Lukashenko's joke really high", highlighting the absurdity of Lukashenko's proposal. But it's no surprise that Kazakhstan belongs on the long list of former Russian satelli...

Re: Russians Are Finding It Increasingly Difficult to Be Defeated By the Ukrainians

The Ukrainians are shooting down some 90% or more consistently, including the ‘hypersonic’ missiles. That is a notable problem for Russia, as Russia long ago stopped trying to deploy manned aircraft, that means they have lost the high ground inside Ukraine for the foreseeable future. You are right,...

Re: Russia's Wagner group operates its own private empire in Africa.

Sertorio is a strange fish. He fought in a colonial war and now lectures us to be nice to th people colonists. Hmm. I made a typo. I meant to say, “Sertorio is a strange fish.

No one man can run a country like Russia. Stalin did it, but at what cost? Putin is today's face of Russia, but once he is gone there will be other faces which will change very little in the manner of ruling Russia.
Sadly, this is probably true.

Re: The UK and US Violate International Law in Syria

I meant to ask, Milo: do you know whether the truck driver pictured (note the facial expression) was eyeing off the soda machine or the girl? Given Boris Yeltsin's experience at a US supermarket in the late 1980's, probably the former! https://blog.chron.com/thetexican/2014/04/when-boris-yeltsin-we...
