And during that time I'd be engaged doing something else.
10 minute videos is a minor commitment in this day and age, I sigh if someone sends me a video link that is over 2 minutes, I have a lot to read, a
lot to catch up on. Besides, I wasn't really complaining, I was merely informing him of this rule and asking for a quick summary, no harm done. Seems
fairly ironic to me that you would complain of me "complaining".
I happen to think that it is also done out of courtesy, not all videos are 10 minutes long, some of them are 2 hour long documentaries and having a
quick summary is therefore quite handy for people strapped for time.
Regardless, I did watch the video while having a cigarette and it's pretty straightforward, nothing new if you've been on ATS this last month. It
talks about the double whammy of the sanctions, the sinking oil prices and the crippling effects they are having on the Russian economy. Conversely it
also mentions Putin's so called "nuclear option", hitting the US where it hurts by undermining the petrodollar. Well, that's about it, or at least
what I can manage to remember for the moment.
