India will NOT be destroyed. India will defend her successfully in WWIII.

India does not need to align with either Eastern or Western alliance.

You forget that India has manpower and a highly diversified industrial base that can sustain warfare for years.

India's problem is pseudo-socialism imposed by Nehru. Indians are very competitive and industrious by nature.

King dollar rules: Betting on the buck


Amid wild fluctuations in stocks and range-bound trading in bonds this week, the U.S. dollar marched ever higher.

The currency is set to finish another week stronger, which would mark 12-straight weeks of gains, the longest winning streak ever.

And pros say though the move has been sharp, the uptrend is still firmly intact.

It only proves manipulation of currency market. Nothing else.

The logical reaction is currency of a country goes down when economic conditions worsen.

A stronger USD only benefits those countries that export to USA. More money in the hands of China.

Clearly, you are talking about some imaginary India that does not suffer from religious and ethnic violence, corruption and overwhelming poverty.

Speaking of currency manipulation.

I do find it hilarious that you are incapable of giving an informed answer instead of your typical deflection.

By all means though p[lease provide your evidence and sources of currency manipulation. I would have figured you would have included it with your dismissal but I will give you the benefit of the doubt in that you forgot to include it.

or the fact there are almost 400 million people in India who do not have access to electricity. To counter that issue the new PM is pushing a program of building nuclear power plants (thorium as well) to change that. That would in effect reduce their reliance on China or Russia for energy needs.

I keep on getting a lot of messages in my email about possible currency movements. Most of these prove accurate. How come some people get such good information about a market that is supposed to be spontaneous and manipulation-proof.

Internet is full of evidence of currency manipulation. The big US banks building trillions of dollars of derivative positions is obviously true. What for?

India does not import its energy from either China or Russia. I think you are mistaken.

India imports its oil from the middle-east. India does have some interest in a Russian oil field but I think that oil field is in development stage.

India imports coal from Indonesia and Australia. Again India does have adequate coal but the extraction and processing units are inadequate.

The plans to build nuclear power plants have been formulated during earlier regimes. This is nothing new.

Sanctions work both ways and with winter on its way the folks in Europe might find it a little cold if Russia stops selling them gas and then they might rise up and tell the USA occupation force to sling its hook.

Putin is not the criminal here and it is high time after the truth about 9/11 was revelaed that Americans do a bit more to clear up the mess at home before allowing the criminals to piss Russia off and get you all killed

What USA occupation foece?

Putin has violated the sovereignty of its neighbors. Pointing your finger at other wrong doers does not make it right. Ultimately, Putin's actions will be disastrous for the Russian people; that is all that matters.

"What USA occupation force"

The one that has hundreds of US military bases all over Europe and not a single foriegn base on its home turf.

The one that uses bribes and blackmail behind closed doors.

The one that does a Dr Kelly if it does not get it's own way.

Having a military base somewhere is not the same as an occupation. The host countries generally want US bases because they are good for the economy. Foreign military do not need bases in the United States because they are not capable of projecting power as far an the United States can. Besides, when they have need of visiting the United States for cooperative exercises they are welcome on American bases.


The one that uses bribes and blackmail behind closed doors.


If using bribes and blackmail behind closed doors makes for a military occupation, every single nation on Earth is militarily occupied by every other nation on Earth.


The one that does a Dr Kelly if it does not get it's own way.


Now you're just sounding jealous.

I think US bases is not the big issue. The bases give more expense than benefit.

It is better to get back to the topic at hand.

You have no powers of prediction. You are just a paid poster. Don't try to glorify yourself.

I have told you Putin does not matter. Russia will stay steadfast even if Putin is replaced.

The issue is too fundamental to Russia than something Putin's fancy.

If you think Russia will allow killing and looting of Russian speaking people in Ukraine, you are dreaming.

So now we are back to the paid poster comments. Are you able to debate without resorting to name calling and false accusations?

Please stick to the topic and knock the derailment crap off. Its getting really friggin annoying when you guys do this.

maybe you can explain how Russia will go on if Putin does not matter? If Putin were gone Russia would not be in the current situation it finds itself. Everything occurring in Russia is a direct result of just how bad of a leader Putin is and will become if he is left unchecked.

Wrong again.

Please provide an example of me glorifying myself. If you cannot, please apologize.


I have told you Putin does not matter. Russia will stay steadfast even if Putin is replaced.


Are you a high raking member of the Kremlin?


The issue is too fundamental to Russia than something Putin's fancy.


What, exactly, do you think "the issue" is?


If you think Russia will allow killing and looting of Russian speaking people in Ukraine, you are dreaming.


If you think think the rest of the world will allow Putin to kill and loot at will, you are dreaming.

BJP= NAZI!

Battered Russian economy faces more pain over Ukraine: IMF


Moscow (AFP) - Russia's already battered economy will struggle to recover from the fallout of the crisis in Ukraine as uncertainty looks set to drag down growth around the former Soviet Union, the IMF warned on Tuesday.
Related Stories

"Risks to growth are largely to the downside," the international lender wrote in its World Economic Outlook released on Tuesday.

"An escalation in geopolitical tensions between Russia and Ukraine, resulting in a tightening of sanctions against Russia, could entail a serious setback for the region."

Russia's economy has been hit hard by the spillover from the Ukraine crisis, with the IMF's projected growth rate for 2014 slumping to just 0.2 percent.

The global lender has halved its 2015 growth forecast for Russia to 0.5 percent amid fears that Moscow's standoff with the West over Ukraine will continue to take its toll.

This article is typical disinformation piece.

Consider the following statements:

Statement 1: "Russia's economy has been hit hard by the spillover from the Ukraine crisis, with the IMF's projected growth rate for 2014 slumping to just 0.2 percent."

One side it says "hit hard"; other side it says growth of 0.2 percent. This is in the backdrop of Ukraine down 10%.

Statement 2: "The global lender has halved its 2015 growth forecast for Russia to 0.5 percent"

Earlier it say 0.2. Now it says 0.5. It is halved from 1%. What is the big statistical difference between 1% and 0.5%.

This is just a sampling from the quoted piece. Readers can make up their own mind for the rest of the article.

Please support your claim its disinformation when your post shows you don't adequately understand whats being talked about.

In a nations economic health even .02% changes can have massive impacts both in the short term as well as long term. Even a growth of 2.5% can be viewed as anemic.

Your comment about Ukraine would be an attempt to try and shift the conversation away from Russian woes. Yes, the Ukraine economy is in tatters thanks to Russia. The Ukraine economy will improve now that it is in the process of unhitching their wagon from Russia. If you bother to compare former SSR economies from when they were under Soviet occupation to the present you will see growth in all of those countries. If you look at the former SSR's who remain under Russian domination you will see a different story.

This is supported by Russia's temper tantrum with the EU agreement Ukraine just signed. Russia is upset because Russian products will face competition and are demanding the removal of 2000 products. Rightfully so Russia should but out since the agreement is between Ukraine and the EU.

The only disinformation I am seeing is coming from you and its because you dont understand what you are talking about.
