The message is that vassals will keep kowtowing to their master... The usual thing... :(
:o It means nothing of the sort Sertorio!

I know that you would not mind seeing Portugal, along with the rest of Europe, become a vassal of Russia by preference but that does not mean that others have such a high regard for the prospect of living in the shadow of the China-Russia rogues' alliance of convenience. :)
I am afraid that the far leftists like Sertorio are so determined to see Socialism prevail or at least its arch enemy, America, fail that they are willing to support the most odious regimes, including one that persecutes religious minorities and harvest their organs.

That is why in Singapore's early precarious days, our LKY could not afford to take chances but arrest people like Sertorio. Their sympathies and actions will help the most evil regimes. To this day, there remains a small core of very dangerous people in the western left.

Does it not amaze you Cass? Putin's authoritarian regime in Russia is allegedly the political arm of the Russian mafia: the gaggle of gangsters and business oligarchs who have taken over the running of the Russian Federation since the demise of the USSR. The closest Russian society seems capable of coming to approxinate a mixed economy with a mainly private enterprise (capitalist, if you will) mode of production and distribution. Yet Sertorio views this jerry-built colossus as the source of Europe's salvation from the clutches of those awful Americans. ( :roll: sigh!)

Well, you know what Vladimir Lenin is reputed to have said about useful fools?

The only Gulag I know in our days is Guantanamo and all the secret CIA jails abroad...

The analogy does not match. The Soviet Gulags were forced labour camps whose inmates were worked to death as slaves. At Guantanamo the prisoners are not worked; merely "kept on ice" indefinitely as non-paying guests of Uncle Sam.

Unlike the USSR, the USA is affluent enough to dispense with forced labour as a cost-ineffective means of getting work done.
