... russia is pathetic and is trying to stay relevant. We get it... the whole World gets it. You clowns aren't even bright enough to change the routine you've been pulling since the 50s. Archaic and pathetic... to be blunt.

Enjoy burning rubles to stay warm this winter... that's all they'll be good for.

"Kirby stated, adding that exercises could potentially expand into other countries. "

As long as they expand to other NATO countries - there should be no problem....?

How's the Ruble doing these days? Anyone? Finance trumps everything. What did the S&P do your Russia's credit rating recently? Why are investors pulling their money out of Russian investments? See for yourself.

Do this one simple thing. Sunday night mark down the value of the ruble and the volume of your market. And next sunday compare the two.

Truth -

1. The Dollar has gain 9.4% on the ruble this year.
2. S&P downgraded credit rating.
3. Bank Rates in Russia rose to 7.5%
4. 1 Dollar = 35 Rubles !!!

Nu ff Said....

Thats all nice and dandy, but I do not think Russia is shaking in their boots, because when the shot is fired, they are getting into it so fast you would think it was a invastion, That is what I saw happend in Georiga, And Russia is not going to be in it alone. There isn't gonna be just a US or NATO/US verses Russia. That is a pointless pipe dream..

The US has no business in the Black Sea.


Exactly. No buisness anywhere for that matter.

So if Russia were to go and strike a deal with Canada kick the US out and on its own start running, sending weapons and controlling what the new government said, did, and thought. Sent some mercanaries, payed them through the kgb and started riots while the hole time accusing the US of all they were doing. All this and REALLY> the US would sit back and watch. Leave. Just leave. Ive seen your ways up close. You make all around you sick. Stay home and print some more dollars.
