Re: Russian imperialism?

It's not as simple as that. The US and some European countries have been using the Ukraine to destabilize and weaken Russia, namely by having tried to prevent Russia using its naval facilities in Crimea . :? That puzzles me Sertorio. What you describe as "Russia's naval facilities in Crimea" were o...

Re: Evo Morales resigns and socialist everywhere claim US backed coup

Evo Morales cheated in the election. That sparked the protests Sertorio. It is a good day for democracy. https://www.google.com.sg/amp/s/www.bbc.com/news/amp/world-latin-america-50370013 Why are you supporting a cheat? Bolivia holds elections once every 5 years.
