Re: What's Going On In Russia? Reply #50 – 2014-12-06, 21:42:19 There are times when you talk sense Sanguinemoon then you drift into the loopy side of America brainwashing nonsense. May I remind you that it was the people IN Crimea that decided on a Referendum because they had once been part of Russia during Soviet times. For some odd reason the USSR moved it into the the local Soviet Republic of Ukraine. Do you understand that simplicity?? Why do you think most of the population spoke Russian and did not want moved to Ukraine in the first damn place? There are Russian military who have been stationed in Ukraine for ages as it was brokered in a money agreement and Russia paid much for the provilige . The two south eastern provinces again have Russia as the number one language and again were part of Russia long before the USSR time. in fact they were part of Imperial Russia and the Tsar. Show either how much you don't know or like Republicans get brained into anything your controllers tell you - or maybe you don't want to know.To try and show Russia as outdoing America on world imperialism is so damn laughable it makes you look a fool.What country has hundreds of bases across the globe, spends have the planet's military costs, has a long history of interference and political intrigue against countries? It isn't Russia and since WW2 you lot have been destroying countries that you cannot control or have your corporates make a fortune while so many Americans starve, homeless and dying due to no insurance.You are a brilliant example of those over the water who if they cannot control a country will have it invaded and damaged. It is still the Cold war mentality that has never drifted from the US and must remind you that because you have a nation you cannot control espeically for making money you will snipe it. The Crimea referendum was properly run and you cannot take that. Those 2 provinces were kept out of the Kiev loop and serve to lose them. Your political bosses and system is the No 1 bad boy in the worl and Russia is most defitnitely not in the same league as your imperialism, arrogance, and hypocrisy.
