The Death of Stalin

Steve Buscemi as Nikita Khrushchev, and a cast of other wonderful actors.

 

Rev Pesky

From the Politico article posted by North Report:

Applebaum says. “I don’t think Americans realize the degree to which they are the main subject of Russian television news ... Every night, the United States is shown to be an enemy of Russia over and over and over again...

...“So, it puts us in an odd position,” she concludes, “where it’s almost as if the Cold War is back—except only one side is fighting it.”

If Annie Applebaum doesn't think the USA is not still fighting the cold war, she must live on some other planet. It's not just about politics, it's about a large part of the world's resources that are being withheld from USA capital.

Whether Putin is able to stabalize Russia is an open question, but when one looks at the condition of Russia when he took over, one can only assume that he's brilliant. In fact, I don't think it's going to far to say that history will see him as one of the most talented leaders of his time.

There was a Russian book published in 2000 about him, containing biographical information, interviews with associates and friends, and interviews with Putin himself. Required reading for anyone who wants to understand Vladimir Putin.

I totally agree with you.  

History will remember Putin for many things but I have his handling of the middle east masterful.

1.  Without Russia the US would dominate middle east through its proxy the Saudis.  While the Russians will never dominate the middle east like the US.  The balance of power is different the Saudis are vassal state of the US, while Iran will never accept vassalage to the Russians.  But Russia will work together Iran to displace the US infleunce in the Middle East.  I dare say that the Shia Crescent is almost achived or the intial stages are almost their.  The Land Bridge were shia will maximum control from Lebenan to Syria to Iran and quickly adding Iraq.  Russia dream of a warm weather port will become reality through diplomacy.  

2.  The elimination of the US power projection through the Saudias.  Right now Iran and Saudia Arabia are fighting a shadow war for dominate in the Middle East.  Saudias made a huge mistake attacking Yemen.  Yemen is the bleeding wound in the body of Suadia Arabia.  It will not bring down Saudias in year or 2 but 5-7years the Saudia will be in lot pain with the economy.  They writing some many cheques to bribe other Sunni countries that it is straining the primtive oil economy even with out Yemen.  Saudias started to borrow internaly through domestic bonds.  And I think floating international bonds as well, both conditions have become necessary to do so balance the interal budget.
