Re: Europe's imports of US LNG are political, not economic.

1. It sends a clear signal to Putin and his gangsters to the effect that if you try any funny business we can take our business elsewhere. I find it a bit disturbing when someone refers in this manner to politicians one doesn't like. Maybe there are gangsters in Russia who try to get close to Putin...

Re: Trump's Revenge: US floods EU with oil

Hundreds of million of people all over the world trust Russia and Putin more than they trust the US. Citation needed. Which is quite understandable. Who can trust a country which denounces every treaty it has ever signed? And yet it's Russian policymakers, not U.S. ones, who have used gas supplies ...

Re: The Liberation of Venezuela

There'd be no need, since I'm not wrong about Venezuela. As everywhere it is tried, socialism there has led to misery, starvation, mass emigration, and death. That someone, who is clearly intelligent, can state that knowledge is useless, is truly amazing to me... You may say that you don't need to ...

Re: The Russian Navy is in a sorry state

Having a positive current account is all well and good: but I wonder what Russia's capital account looks like? Probably very much in deficit. I hear that Russia's oligarchs and gangster chieftains, who own or otherwise control the country's wealth, have been getting their money out of Russia for ye...

Re: Gas, guns and pragmatism

Well, it looks now as if Putin will gather a sizeable part of Eurasia together into a zone of shared penury. Shared penury? Explain, please. And prove your statement, if you can...
