Re: The Liberation of Venezuela

Maduro is doing no more than Chavez did, and things were quite normal under Chavez. Because by then Venezuela was getting all the money due it for the sale of oil. No, because at that point the regime had not yet run out of things to steal. Just out of curiosity, what precisely did the regime steal...

Re: Not since WWII: France withdraws Italy envoy

Interesting how you, for once, thought that RT was a reliable source of information... Could it be that they are right in respect of other issues?... :D I noticed that, and figured that, as one would expect from the Kremlin, the goal is less to be informative, and more simply to seize upon any oppo...

Most of those formations are not "islands" at all, that's why China has spent so much on building platforms to operate from.
And therefore, if I am not mistaken, they are not entitled to territorial waters or to an EEZ. Am I right?...

Re: The Russian Navy is in a sorry state

https://www.strategypage.com/htmw/htwin/articles/20190202.aspx So what? Russia is a terrestrial, not a maritime, power that does not need a navy to defend itself anyhow. Just an army and an air force. Then why are they in Syria? I thought they wanted the Syrian port so that they can claim to be a M...

Re: The Liberation of Venezuela

If Venezuela could get payment for its oil - which the US is mostly preventing - there wouldn't be any shortages in Venezuela. That's only your wishful thinking Sertorio. Had the regime not opted to impose a command economy on the country instead of retaining a managed market based economy those sh...

Re: PRC harassment abroad: the regime that will stop at nothing to get its own way.

I do not see any other major country acting in this manner. Yes, China "could" become a threat, but it isn't, at the moment. Yes, it is. It is laying claim to nearly the entire S China Sea. Also don't forget that it conquered Tibet. I believe we are all influenced by our history, among other things...

Re: The Liberation of Venezuela

Venezuela doesn't need aid, it needs the US stopping all sanctions and boycotts, which are the cause of the economic hardship. And if aid were needed, it shouldn't be used to further the fake president's pretensions, and should be dispensed by the Red Cross. But this is not about aid, it is about t...
