Vladimir Putin and Russia

I get the impression the general western public is just completely fatigued by what is happening in Syria. It's awful, no matter who is to blame, but what can you do? Relatively speaking our own domestic affairs are shambolic and ever evolving, and of much greater interest to us. It's different for gloomy who does this as a job, but I tend to avoid this issue entirely if I can.

Reminds me of when Ali G is arguing with the bloke from the BBFC that 'vagina' is more offensive than 'cunt' because you could say to a lass 'you have a nice cunt' but using the word 'vagina' in the same context would sound horrible

Agreed, very interesting. If the Clintons hadn't fucked up the US-Russian relationship, maybe we wouldn't be where we are. It's hard not to have some sympathy with Putin as much as we want our Western hegemony to continue and for Russia to ultimately be absorbed into it.

 

We're seeing a bit of an 'Empire Strikes Back' moment presently it seems. Hopefully Russia isn't resurgent to the point it was, although the history here definitely has shades of 1920-30s Germany about it.

The Neo-cons will be looking at all ways to fuck things up. Kristal, Nuland (her husband Kagan) etc...

 

Might even try something just before Trump gets in. :lol:
