    I remember getting under my desk in air raid drills. Do you? Will our children have to learn to do so?

      Who told you that hiding under your desk would protect you in the event of a nukular holocaust? I suspect your children would not be that gullible - and - probably a bit on the large size to squeeze under a school desk. lol

      Odd - I thought you wanted the Russians to get Capitalism. Now they have more money than the US - they are pushing you around some.

      How does that feel Big Boy? Oh yeah - scared. lol

        None of that bluster there Sparky takes away from the failure of this administration to improve relations with those who would vaporize us.
        Now does it?

      The country is run by an ex KGB assassin and spy who really dislikes the US.  There never was any reset, Russia was weakened by the collapse and thus didn't want a confrontation.

      But hey I suspect Putin is the best thing for the US at the moment, it's his personal popularity that is keeping the communist party out of office and in the opposition. If he dies or his popularity takes a really big hit (it's declining pretty fast) things will get interesting.

        That is an interesting thought. Hope you don't mind agreeing with me?

    I am not at all surprised that an agreement from the era of the USSR/empire does not fit the remaining single country of Russia.  It is most likely time to make a new agreement.

    1. JSChams profile image57
      JSChamsposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      It is most likely due to the fact Vladimir Putin is not intersted in the agreement. He is old school Soviet. He was KGB. So much for the "new Russia".

      Go to your history tab and there should be a link. Or go to explore and it's in there.

    Wow, so Putin wants to live in state of 'combat readiness' - for what? he honestly thinks people of democracy would genuinely want nuclear war? that's some serious paranoia. A symptom of some sort of illness, possibly? hmm

      alright, I stand corrected lol seems all those in defense industry need to get a medical check tongue good gawd. I thought we were 'dismantling' or least, putting weapons to rest hmm whichever nation is 'supportive' of any nation that 'deploys' - should bear full responsibility of the action, make full attempts to dissuade 'combative' behaviors from such 'friends' and provide 'consequences'. No expert here but do have common sense tongue  hmm 

      @knoly smile click on explore and then scroll to forums.

        You really don't want to dismantle if you aren't certain that they are. Are you?

    "Washington is walking a temporary tightrope hoping to weaken al-Assad fatally while not appearing directly involved. Russia for its part is playing a life and death game for the future of its most effective geopolitical lever—its role as the leading natural gas supplier to the EU. This year Russia’s state-owned Gazprom began delivery of Russian gas to northern Germany via Nord Stream gas pipeline under the Baltic Sea from a port near St. Petersburg. Strategically vital now for the future role of Russia as an EU gas supplier, is its ability to play a strategic role in exploiting the new-found gas reserves of its former Cold war client state, Syria. Moscow has long been engaged in promoting its South Stream gas pipeline into Europe as an alternative to the Washington Nabucco pipeline which was designed to leave Moscow out in the cold. [23]

    Already Gazprom is the largest natural gas supplier to the EU. Gazprom with Nord Stream and other lines plans to increase its gas supply to Europe this year by 12% to 155 billion cubic meters. It now controls 25% of the total European gas market and aims to reach 30% with completion of South Stream and other projects.

    Rainer Seele, chairman of Germany’s Wintershall, the Gazprom partner in Nord Stream, suggested the geopolitical thinking behind the decision to join South Stream: “In the global race against Asian countries for raw materials, South Stream, like Nord Stream, will ensure access to energy resources which are vital to our economy.” But rather than Asia, the real focus of South Stream lies to the West. The ongoing battle between Russia’s South Stream and the Washington-backed Nabucco is intensely geopolitical. The winner will hold a major advantage in the future political terrain of Europe."
