The cold war ended twenty years ago. They're no threat.--BO 2002
Hey Chris B -"And barack for years dismissed that Russia/Putin
were any kind of threat . . ."No, he didn't.Quit making stuff up.
Russians will manage to get plenty food without American products. In general, the American press has been one-sided anti-Russian, but the
situation is not one-sided at all. Ukrainian military forces have been bombing
and shelling civilian residential apartment buildings indiscriminately, which is
a war crime under international law. As a result, well more than a hundred
thousand civilians have been forced to flee their homes. They have fled to
Russia which has offered them assistance including getting resettled with jobs
in Russia. This has not been reported in the American media.
And barack for years dismissed that Russia/Putin were any kind of threat to
society. Wrong again barack!
Not eating western food might actually be good for the health of the Russian
people! What the headline should read is "Russia impeding its own
people's access to *American* food". A weak response from the US, as
is usual under this administration, and will only be laughed at by our enemies.
Vladimir Putin is his own worst enemy. With his support of the Ukrainian rebels
he's opening the door for the Ukraine to join NATO. While before the war
there was quite a bit of debate among them of whether or not they should join
NATO, Putin's actions have now solidified their future decision to join. I
don't think that's a bad thing for the US. The question
is whether or not Ukraine is going to win back the eastern 1/5th of their
country, but by their army's recent progress it looks like they will.
Thereafter I suspect that the trend of the ethnic Russians self deporting from
the Ukraine will increase. When the Iron Curtain fell the Poles kicked the
ethnic Russians out of Poland and they don't have any problems now. Right
or wrong, I'm sure the Ukrainians understand this and plan on doing the
"Russia impeding own people's access to food"What do
Russians need food for? Putin's rhetoric will sustain them.They
LOVE Putin, and they can survive very well by licking up Putin's spiel.. . . Or maybe they can't.I guess we'll see.
