While it is rare for countries to recall ambassadors the mere fact of doing so doesn't mean anything more is pending or that escalation will follow. My understanding is that it is a move that lets the targeted country know there is a problem at some point.

Exactly. Shuffling around diplomats (and embassies) is a rather standard diplomatic move to say "we don't like what you said" or "we don't like your latest policy."

If you're a news junkie (like me) you'll recall many of these incidents in the past.

Yup it's a regular nudge wink thing to attract attention but avoid confrontation about a situation.

One is tiny. After the Skirpal poisoning Trump expelled over 60 Russian diplomats calling them spies and put sanctions on Russia, Russia expelled 150 western diplomats in retaliation and threatened the UK with action. The US shut down the consulate in Russia and Russia recalled all Embassy staff and amasadors before shutting it down.

It went on for weeks with around 1000 total expulsions and recalls in the Russia vs West tit for tat games but fizzled out to nothing and there was never any threat of war.

Biden's comments were prompted by a U.S. Intel report earlier this week stating that Russia attempted to ruin Joe Biden's election chances.


Ruin his chances for WHAT????

To get more dead people to vote??? To get 200% of the voting public rather than just 120% What election chances, exactly, were "ruined"??????????

"Clown-World to Earth...come in, Earth. This is Clown-World calling Earth; do you hear us? Repeat, this is Clown-World calling; do you read us? (They just keep hanging up, sir. I don't understand it.) Come in, Earth; this is Clown-World calling! We need your help up here, Earth; please answer us! Repeat...Earth, this is Clown-World calling..."

You have to remember that Joe Biden has a huge ego. Dementia has not humbled him one bit.

Russia are a busted flush. Militarily they would be tucked up and put to bed in short order IF things stayed conventional. They remain a big player though due to their vast stockpile of old and new nuclear weapons. Putin is a tough guy, but he knows that one stray nuke would see the whole of Russia glassed. So as long as he is never staring conventional defeat in the eye then he has few teeth to worry about.

Sure he has people poisoned and assassinated. He plays the game well and is not to be underestimated.

The real issue here is idiot Joe behaving like a political novice. Putin reacts far better to having his ego stroked. If you act like a jerk who can’t even walk up stairs without falling over you can expect Putin, and some others, to take advantage. a reply to: M5xaz
