Ok, physical destruction of the planet I can deal with. Militant Islam? Just another day at the office. Global finacial collapse? I'll get to it
after coffee. Human rights abuses that the US is not too concerned about? Still?
But I didn't think I'd be seeing these bad boys again.
Rueters provides the following story.Reuters
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said he wants to bring ex-Soviet states into a "Eurasian Union" in an article which
outlined his first foreign policy initiative as he prepares to return to the Kremlin as the country's next president.
I'm beginning to see
President for Life here. Remember the macho photos saying he's tough, won't be pushed around, and will probably live to 100?
Russia's relationship with its ex-Soviet neighbors has been troubled by trade and political disputes and even armed conflicts such as the 2008
war with Georgia. Putin said he saw the new union as a supra-national body which would coordinate "economic and currency policy" between its
members. It would also be open to new members.
A "supra-national body?" So was the USSR. And I bet it will be open to new members, open
arms, preparing for a bear hug.
But this was a wrong choice, he wrote. He argued that the Customs Union and in future the Eurasian Union would be the European Union's partner in
talks over the creation of a common economic space, guaranteeing its members a stronger voice.
The European Union and the Eurasian Union
creating a common space? I wonder who will lead it?
Ok, sure, I'm paranoid. Should I be? What is the US policy? Forget that, we probably don't have a policy. What should our policy be? What is
Russia's goal? Absorb Islam? Take Europe?Build the strength to take on China?
If we surrender, I don't even know who'd we surrender to. Split up the country and give pieces to the rest of the world?
Guys, help me with this one.
