Comments on: Russia drops the mic: Syria pullout comes at perfect moment http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2016/03/15/its-the-perfect-moment-for-russia-to-leave-syria/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: PersonFromEarth http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2016/03/15/its-the-perfect-moment-for-russia-to-leave-syria/#comment-1129197 Thu, 17 Mar 2016 22:46:53 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=46993#comment-1129197 @cautious123: You just couldn’t resist from posting your ludicrous comments on this website. The fact that Barack (or for that matter any politician in the free world) is ten-times more the diplomat than Putin or any dark-age, Putinist-inspired politician just isn’t quite good enough for paranoid Putinphiles/anti-Americans/anti-NATOers/ anti-Westerners like yourself. And by the way, we didn’t start the problems in the Ukraine — your fascist dear leader did when he tried to engineer a policy change after, hysterically enough, his lackey Yanukovych dared to stop being a Russian vassal state. And the Crimean referendum was a sham referendum, so don’t resort to the Putinist propaganda about there being no “Russian invasion” there. Finally, to not characterize Putin as “tending to escalation, confrontation and defiance” is just a lot of Putinist navel-gazing, cold war bunko. Given that Putin is systematically threatening NATO, every single NATO leader except Obama deserves a Nobel Prize for restraint in the face of an aggressive Russia whose foreign policy of regime change is run by warmongering neocons. A Nobel Prize for Toomas Hendrik Ilves would certainly be better earned than the one that Vladimir “Eston Kohver kidnapper” Putin got.

Driven by your mediocrity of understanding, starting these regime maintenance by the war-criminals – al-Assad, Putin and hardline Iranian strategists to foment these senseless conflicts around the globe to kill off about a million folks, displace 12 million people, strain relations with allies and worsen relations with enemies like the EU to the point of putting their heads to lose in subsequent elections and trillions of precious Russian tax payer dollars, time has come to hold these war criminals accountable for their dysfunction. The upcoming Russian legislative elections should send a shiver to folks like you but unfortunately the people who can go by line-items to bring some effectiveness to the otherwise corrupt Russian entities bringing more harm than help to the Russian public in the global arena have all left Russia so Putinists like you will be driven by your mediocrity of understanding into the ash heap of history .

Big foreign plans going nowhere. Failed economies at home.

They have been predicting the collapse of the Russian economy every day for the last 25 months. They have predicted blitzkrieg attacks to targets like Transnistria, popular uprisings in the streets of Moscow, mutiny in the Russian army, Tartar uprisings in Crimea, profound Russian misery in another Afghanistan type quagmire, and especially !A NEW COLD WAR! (and presumably improved employment prospects for Russia experts).

I don’t think Putin is particularly clever, intelligent, or devious, I think they are just really lousy Russia experts.

The fact that Putin is ten-times more the diplomat than any US politician just isn’t quite good enough for Russophobes. And by the way, Russia didn’t start the problems in the Ukraine — the neocons did when they engineered the coup against an elected government. And the Crimea voted to join Russia, so don’t resort to neocon propaganda about a “Russian invasion” there. Finally, to characterize Putin as “tending to escalation, confrontation and defiance” is just a lot of anti-Russian, cold war bunko. Given that NATO is systematically surrounding Russia, Putin deserves a Nobel Prize for restraint in the face of an aggressive US whose foreign policy of regime change is run by warmongering neocons. A Nobel Prize for Putin would certainly be better earned than the one Barak “kill list” Obama got.
