i believe Putin is unpredictable only because we can't keep him in check. Trust me, having no money will keep him in check. I always here this talk about Russian Pride...what pride would that be? Russia can sure tell a lot of truly sad stories: such as their own ruler killing 30 million of his own people. Millions dead from wars and famine. That isn't pride, thats sadness.
Other than put that Billionaire in prison and take his oil company..what has he done to think he deserves some type of respect in the world. He's trying to take Russia back to what glory? please tell me. I must have missed this part in my reading. Are Russians talking about when they invaded their neighbors in the forties and subjected them to their rule? Is that the pride people speak of ?
You see anybody that wants to live in a dismal past is going to have a dismal future. Am I the only one that sees this.
Russia is and has always been a jealous country. The wall wasn't built to keep people in, it was built to keep people out. You werrye correct when you mentioned Russias corruption...they couldn't even trust each other so they put that wall up and scared their own people for the last 60 years. terrified of our spies going in there and taking whatever it was we needed (information).Theycreated the KGB to keep their own people in check...Always there watching..
They could have created big industry...auto manufacturing, tractors, textiles....but no, corruption and fear of their ghosts......MOTHER RUSSIA.
With their past, I wouldn't be bragging.
Our country at least at a moment in time did the right thing and made some sound choices....we had geniuses, inventors,vision,,,,,thats pride, this country produced many great individuals that made sound contrbution to the world.......that's the difference. I love individuals in our past in this country...not our government
