    What did people expect to happen? That they’d be thrown from a window? Poisoned with an umbrella tip? They gave him a lovely little opportunity to look cuddly and reasonable, not that I blame them for trying.

    Russophobia? They’re amassing troops on the border of Ukraine and doing military testing in our waters, we’re not supposed to treat them like the dodgy totalitarian state they are?

      How different are they really? Snowden, Assange.. ? This is a proxy war over who controls Europe’s energy.. no more, no less..

        Different? From what? From who? Do we want Europe’s energy controlled by a kleptocratic totalitarian state who seems pretty committed to undermining and dismantling the EU? I mean, a big chunk of it already is, but is that a good thing?

      Amassing troops within their own borders and doing military testing in international waters. The hyperbole by some is astounding.

        The media provides a Boogeyman and some plebs will lap it up. A pavlovian response that shows they’re incapable of their own thinking.

    i caught a bit of it picking up the kids from school. joe was banging on about ‘did you not ask him if the russians will be armed with nuclear weapons’ or somesuch. fair play to the fisher lad – i’d have told joe to ask me bollix.

    The Putin-licks phoning into Liveline in the last few days are very strange men. Russia is one of 4 christian countries left in Europe according to one of the thicks. Less than 50% of Russians are even Christian.

    The Russians are right to put it up to NATO. They’ve seen the Brits and Yanks destroy Iraq and Afghanistan, and then run away. Best thing they could is pull back from the Russian border and concentrate on killing shepherds in Yemen. Much safer past-time.

        It was the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics that invaded Afghanistan.

        But don’t let the facts interfere with your Potato.

          To help the actual democratic vote of the majority of people in Afghanistan. Taken down by the Americans. There are copious materials which set out the US plan for Afghanistan.

          Some invasions are significant and deplorable. Some are to be dismissed as irrelevant. Protect Putin!
