The problem you guys have is you can see the changes Russia has under gone since 2008. The country has a cold war leader whose intent is to restart the cold war with the hope Russia will win this time. Last when Russia lost the way of life in Russia collapse. This time maybe they will win and it will your way of life that collapses.



Texan, maybe you have been programmed to only see one side of the situation? Russia has nothing to gain by another cold war. Given that NATO has encroached on Russia to the point Putin had little choice but to reclaim Crimea, and to do what is necessary to secure their future.

Russia has more to gain by working with other countries, but uncle Sam and the western propaganda machine wants you to believe otherwise.

Just keep reading RT news and put head in sand. Then what do you call Donbas, Georgia, and Moldavia? If it was not for Donbas this thing with Russia would of ended years ago. Russia wants to keep carrying on the cold war but they do not want anyone from the west to respond until it is too late.

Many people here keep writing about how Russia is trying to end the US dollar so the US could no longer buy weapons. Now that is a cold war if I have ever heard of one. But what you guy do not see they do not just want to end the us dollar but all western currencies so NATO can not buy weapons or feed their population. You guys often say how poor I am going to become when the US dollar ends and I keep trying to tell you it will not be only me or us in the USA.

Donbas is no different situation to Transnistria in Moldova...

There is not a lot to it really and anyone with a few brain cells should be able to work out why there are problems in these places... the stupid dumb ass Ukrainian government just make trouble for them selves..

Can you imagine if a new government came to power in the UK and they decided to Ban the Welsh or Scottish language? if they decided to remove every thing to do with the welsh language, signs, TV channels absolutely every thing. And if they decided to give the Welsh and Scottish a really bad time.

Do you think there would be a civil war in the UK ? Do you think there maybe a few riots, maybe a few hundred or thousand deaths and probably a lot more!

Maybe Donbas is Ukraine.. but still the dumb ass Ukrainian government are not civilised people they are just ***** morons..

The Welsh already burn properties belonging to the English in Wales, you think they would be happy if they language and every thing to do with Wales was banned ?? :Zzzzsleep: :Zzzzsleep: :Zzzzsleep: :Zzzzsleep:


I support no government anywhere, ever, never. No institution, No religion!!

How USA and the CIA are fighting Russian interests
in Greece

Today following a link in a Greek paper regarding certain episodes that took place in Greece last week, I came across a very interesting article which shows, all the dirty tricks and how the USA and the CIA are fighting Russian interests in Greece via football and other business interests of one rich Russian - Greek businessman, Ivan Savvidis.

I am sure most of you will remember the US Ambassador in Kiev Geoffrey Pyat who together with Victoria Newman
(F.u.c.k the EU!) organised the coup that brought down the legitimate Government of Victor Yancovitch and you know what happened there.

Now Geoffrey Pyat , who has been working for the CIA, is doing the same in Greece.

The article is in Russian but easily translated by coogle and will give you another facet of how this charitable organisation is working for the American interests everywhere on the world.

What is really behind the scandal with Ivan Savvidi
in Greek football?

The football community is agitated by the history around the owner of the Greek club PAOK, Russian businessman Ivan Savvidi. However, the background of the scandal is not entirely a sporting component. The interests of Russia and the United States collided.



These two gentlemen are Billionaire oligarchs.

To get an taste on how dirty is the fighting.........take a look at the banner in Russian (Anybody can please translate correctly) with the threat for the life of Ivan Savvidis and his family!

And now the Facts for our clueless Wiz

1/ as proven in a subsequent election...Yanu' was not required as ' leader' ...even his own political party disowns him for running away from justice

2/
Ivan Savvidi is a Pontian (Black Sea) Greek....a Greek passport holder .....and was the cause for a game being cancelled ....as he ran on the pitch to protest a referee decision, wearing a gun...hence the posters....

Wiz.. if you want to understand...just ask
