AntiPrivateWestBankersRevival of Russian Church supported by the state speaks more.
So where are you getting your info from? Russia?
You know, I get that and I agree completely. However, there does come that personal values aspect I alluded to and this...
Doesn't outweigh or justify invading and (possibly) attempting to annex another country, and on that count I am judging Russia by their actions.
I will agree with you on this, Russia is not as sophisticated on "hidden hand" support like the western intelligence agencies are.
West would support Western Ukraine in a hidden way, and instead of Russia doing the same in Eastern Ukraine, they are choosing the military advance.
Russia sees how sly and how well NATO is taking away their allies, bit by bit, bite by bite.
AntiPrivateWestBankersI don't blame them one bit for forcing their hand in Ukraine, the big secret is that Russia is AFRAID, they act tough, but they know their victory over West Bankers and Military NATO complex is by no means guaranteed.
They are afraid of losing in the long run, and they are panicking, which is why they are so forceful when it comes to their base and Crimea.
For Crying out loud, US military has tech that boggles the mind. Who wouldn't be afraid that one day, ooops, there goes Russia.

After all who poisoned Alexander Litvinenko?
Oh I am sorry are you talking about Russian Spy who defected, betrayed his country and started working with British Intelligence.
LOL even his father later turned on him, do your research, don't expect CNN to do it for you.
Paul George Klebnikov
Pavel Trofimovich Morozov
That being said Russia has every right to not want a Nazi Facist Government controlling their pipelines. Reports about who is going to be running the New Ukrainian Government are already spilling out. The three wealthiest people in all of the Ukraine have been put place in three of the top positions.
IMO the people of the Ukraine are being abused by BOTH sides.

As for the rest of the thread. While I find myself cheering Russia more and more, I also understand that they have their own slew of bad problems that I want no part in like the rampant mafia corruption that resulted in the most expensive Olympics ever with shoddy and incomplete construction that could have been done at a fraction of that price.
You display a very good knowledge of MSM media, and I don't blame you.
For your information, out of 10 000 hotel rooms, 119 were unfinished and complained about, but of course leave it to MSM to find a fly in the ointment and zoom in LOL

Needs a bit more sizzle, zest and pizzazz at the end. Otherwise not a bad piece.
Your anti Russian comments regardless of the nature of the post has been noted, not just in this thread.
Living in Canada and not drinking alcohol, ##SNIPPED##, has left my memory and brain pretty intact.
Using my memory, I can clearly remember how things were in the 80s 90s and how things are now.
Make no mistake gentlemen US driven war and corporation machine is working on true world domination and Canada has fell into it along with other western nations. Organized Agenda has destroyed our food (gmo's), NATO geo-engineering is poisoning our skies. US Neocon Agenda has altered even our laws in Canada. Our Harper (just to give you example) has turned Canada into MINI USA. Soon we will be chanting USA USA.
Our Christian values are eroded, the new cool is to be wiccan or atheist, it is also popular to watch vampire TV shows.
Our Education is now laughable just like in the US and UK.
We now support NATO intervention world wide.
We support Israeli Illegal settlements.
WE are now just as bad ass as United States. And this is true for all other nations US and US banks have managed to usurp.
But guess what, there is hope, Russia may not be as powerful as US, but Russia is showing the Western Conglomerate that it won't go quietly into the night.
Russia stands for NO GMO, NO ChemTrails, Christian Values (although orthodox but Jesus is Jesus)
Russia has a national central bank which does not put Russia into unpayable debt, RUSSIAN FEDERATION HAS NO DEBT
Russians have no world De-population agenda, which is precisely the agenda of the Western Elite in the next 50-100 years.
So when you choose US - NATO - IMF - ECB - FEDERAL RESERVE.........over choosing Russia.
You are choosing the wrong side of history.
Now I'll admit, Ruskies are not perfect, in fact they are rough around the edges, but that roughness has decreased 50% in the last 10 years because of their standard of living going up and up. So as they modernize more, they will become more friendly to immigrants for example and things like that.
Of course, USA used to be nice too, and after US complex killed Kennedy, US went pretty bad.
So maybe in the future 300 years from now Russia will turn bad too. But for now, they are YOUR ONLY HOPEedit on Mon Mar 3 2014 by DontTreadOnMe because: (no reason given)
