Russia just defending itself against an idiot.
Bomb them back into the Stone Age.
COD4 has renewed my conviction to kill Russians.
They better grow an economy first.
That's nice, Vlad. Now tuck the wee winkie back into your depends and fade away like a good old politician. That's a good boy.
Out of the starting gate before the gun fired.
All I said is "let him".
Edited for symmetry.
If American bases in Eastern Europe worry Russia, all I can say is that the Russians either should've (1) been a little kinder to their imperial subjects or (2) not lost the Cold War.
They're not getting that empire back and its really best if they hold no illusions in that regard.
Both sides are stupider than stupid.
Its like 2 big fat blokes bearing their chest and going 'grrrr' at each other
Grow the fuck up....
If Barney did an episode on international relations, I would expect it to sound something like this.
You think either russia or america is acting like an an adult over all this shit?
They ARE adults you dumbfuck.
You aren't living in Rodenberry's utopia and you never will. Balance of power is what has kept things from turning into another world war. Not your wishful thinking.
The arms race never ends, the USSR couldn't afford to compete anymore and had to drop out years ago. Don't see a reason to think they'll be any more competitive now.
There's no story here, just more garden variety hyperbole from a politician leaving office.
It's so cute that you think he's really leaving.
Spot the difference.
Why must we be decieved like so?
Whether he continues his reign behind the scenes is irrelevant. Vowing a new arms race with the US is a straight up nothingness, at best it could be considered political hyperbole.
Yeah i agree.
Its just the way these idiots go about 'balance of power' is comically childish
Claim the US is starting a new arms race then use that as a justification for Russia fielding new weapons in response.
What says the US? It's a missile system not directed against Russia.
But really there's no need for the US to even be a part of the discussion.
This is but another politician using fear to justify action.
Curious that when a US politician utilizes this tactic he is rightfully ridiculed yet when Mr. Putin does the same he is embraced by more than a few Wordforge members.
Simply put, there is no new arms race.
Oh of course it is, its global power play politics, the 'missile shield' (which wont actualy work) is just a card on the table in the poker game of global politics.
The idea that its there to stop the middle east launching missiles at the US is laughable Especialy as its all based along the russian border
Who has "embraced" Putin? I think he's a disgrace.
That doesn't excuse deliberately the thread title.
So we agree that this is only so much political blathering?
Hey if the thread title is your complaint fine. I'm not bothered by the thread title.
Mr. Putin is claiming the US is starting a new arms race then using that opinion as a justification for Russia fielding new weapons in response.
There is no new arms race.
Yes, very silly, very childish blathering, that makes everyone involved look daft
Well, the Americans are deploying weapons, and the Russians are responding with their own. Sounds like an arms race to me.
The only argument is over who started it.
Yeah we'll probably never know who the first human was who conceived of using a weapon.
Though I'll admit the beginning of 2001 seems an entirely plausible scenario.
Of course, so far, the only person involved with this foolishness is Mr. Putin.
