Napoleon... Yeah, that guy was nuts Smiley

I'm not that familiar with Napoleonic War history, but wasn't it the Czar who broke the peace treaty they had together?

It was complicated Smiley

Well, Russian government is fundamentally hostile to most branches of Christianity. Why should it be given a rest?

NATO and EU is what has kept Europe at peace, prosperous and free. Whether the US administration wants to participate or not, it is incumbent upon all decent people in this world to support these wonderful institutions. If they disintegrate, few of us will live to tell the story how we screwed up.

-Tell that to the people of Libya, Syria, and Serbia.

I am telling this to people in France, Germany, Poland and Greece. And, BTW, to those in Serbia as well.

This is stupid, and you're engaging in Russiaphobia. The stupidity is astonoshing, do you also seriously have a flag of Ukraine, with it's fascist authoritarian government.

Grow a fycking brain, you dense person.



And, of course, you should not be speaking about stupidity. When in a glass house, you know...

Learn something about the issues you are talking about before you do so. Russophobia, my ass! You have become a typical fascist appeaser and enabler, without realising it .

Ukrainian government is not fascist. And, most definitely, not authoritarian. It is a weak, mildly nationalist, somewhat liberal, not very ideologically-defined democratically elected government, that is unlikely to survive the next election. Few Ukrainians care much about their current (or past) leaders and they are pretty free to replace them. Poroshenko is no autocrat: he is barely capable of enforcing his will within 30 meters of where he happens to be standing. Neither he is a fascist, under any description. His PM is Jewish, his interior minister is Armenian, his Foreign Minister is Russian (the last two weren't even born in Ukraine: Avakov is from Azerbaijan, Klimkin is from Russia itself). Georgians and Lithuanians have played a strong role in the government in recent past. Naturally, many cabinet members speak Russian among themselves. If anything, it is an ex-Soviet internationalist regime Smiley The government itself is a weak coalition in parliament, and Poroshenko has not chosen it, nor will he be able to determine what will replace it.  

You can say a lot of nasty things about that government (some of them are corrupt, some are incompetent, many are both). But it is neither fascist, nor a dictatorship in any imaginable meaning of the word. All of you who continue mouthing this nonsense are just a clear illustration of how effective Russian propaganda may be. A real fascist authoritarian regime in Russia (and it is both fascist and authoritarian by any standard) managing to convince a big chunk of the world that a weak democratic neighbour is a nasty authoritarian fascist monster. It is incredible demonstration of the power of calumny.

We're also not in a world war with Russia and God willing will continue to not be in a world war with Russia. You seem uninterested in continuing to not be in a world war with Russia.

In every single act of conflict involving Russia, Russia has been the aggressor.

Mongols, Napoleon and Hitler were just minding their own business.

Well, Russia tried to partner with Hitler - it did start the war on the German side, you know. Did not work out, though, here you have a point. But not due to Russia's intentions.

Mongols: but that is before there was a Russia. There was a bunch of principalities, most of them (including the most important ones) now Ukrainian. Much of later Russian heartland was never even touched (Novgorod was not invaded at all). Moscow as such at the time of the conquest was a minor fortress/ not even a very firm provincial apanage seat. And, then, of course, Moscow got to predominance within Russia by subcontracting collecting the Tartar tribute and otherwise acting as a Tartar enforcer against the rest. Moscow, really, is a Tartar creation as a political force. That is the origin of the Moscow empire: never forget that.

Napoleon... Yeah, that guy was nuts Smiley

Kind of. But in Russian there is a single letter for it. Latin script should not be used for Slavic languages Smiley



Polish Cyrylic alphabet probably would need letters not used from centuries like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yus ...

Of course! That is the beauty of it! Get back the Yuses (I guess, both the lesser and the major, and the ioted forms of it). Cyril and Methodius have thought about all of that Smiley

Believe me, I tried to use Polish Cyrylic alphabet with yus and writing that letter is pain in the ass. Handwriting is much slower because of that. I prefer using Latin alphabet on everyday use.

Just invent a modern cursive version of it, for gods' sake. I mean, not that any of those letters are easy to print.

BTW, some Mexican companies have already started declaring they will stop buying Ford cars: because Ford gave in to Trump. We are getting into a trade war (which, of course, we in Mexico will lose: but there will be no winners).

Realization, that because of people like you millions will die. And, in fact, that you, probably, want it.

-Guys, death threat or no?

From you, yes. From me, no.
12  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump Calls NATO Obsolete and Dismisses EU in German Interview on: Today at 12:03:58 am
How is ag not banned for repeated death threats?

Please learn English. "Death threat" generally means that somebody is threatening to cause a death. Not that somebody is warning you of a deadly danger coming from elsewhere (as I am doing, in this case). Or are you seriously suggesting that I am controlling Donald Trump?

These non-English-speaking trolls are getting tiresome.

I've seen this place many times in south Minneapolis near a grocery store but yesterday when I saw it I got enraged. Yes of course those vile place should be shut down.

No, of course. Though, judging from what I have been able to see on the web about it, it would not be a great tragedy: seems like crap. There are much better Russian art museums in the US.

Its site says it's the only such museum in North America.

Only in the sense of having no art other than Russian (even then I doubt). But, then, from what I understand it barely has any art.

This

http://www.zimmerlimuseum.rutgers.edu/information/visitors#.WHxKyVN9670

is a much better place, for instance. A serious museum, to begin with.

"non-existent Russia threat"

uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

-It is, indeed, non-existent.

I know you're a Russian internet troll, but you're like the third or fourth one we've had and at this point I almost feel like someone at the FSB is under the impression that the forum is a highly influential website.  If so, then you folks have made a terrible mistake Tongue

Not true.  The FSB should be made aware that this is a highly influential website, and that all admins here accept bribes.


I do not!

Imagine if he died because of it.

It was his choice. I will assume he wanted to die in this way.

Weirdly enough, trump being anti-EU may become the only thing holding the Union together.

Not the only thing, but it will definitely help. Anti-EU forces will be inevitably tied up in the public opinion with the orange overseas monstrosity.

Other than his "take out their families" nonsense (which hopefully others will block him from implementing), foreign policy is the one area where Trump is decent. NATO absolutely is obsolete, despite the fear mongering about a non-existent Russian threat.

It is his foreign policy that will directly result in deaths of 10-20 mln. Americans and, at least, 1 bln people worldwide. Happy you think that is "decent".

Source for this estimate?

Well, this policy will inevitably result in a nuclear WWIII. What do you expect the casualties be?

Um yes Russia should abandon the eastern Ukraine seperatists as they are F[INKS]ING SAVAGES, those vile terrorists SHOT DOWN A CIVILIAN AIRLINER, bomb them into annihilation. Also I've read about the oppression they are doing of underground Protestant churches. Those disgusting sick f[inks]s are no better than ISIS in my view. Ukraine should annihilate them and reclaim its rightful territory.

And Ukraine in no way oppresses ethnic Russians.

-You really are something out of a parody.

Well, you are far beyond the parody. People like you gave us WWII. You are hell-bent on destroying us all in WWIII.

There is a special place for those like you in Hell. I am sure you will have an eternity to think about it.

I wish there was a Russian consulate in Minneapolis. If there was I'd burn a Russian flag in front of it on Trump's inauguration day and hold up a sign that said "DEATH TO RUSSIA, LONG LIVE UKRAINE!"

As there isn't, I might just do so in front of this place instead.

There are a bunch of other Russian establishments in the area. Surely, you can find something a bit less inconsequential.

It matters to Bernie himself, and if the rift between the 2020 nominee and Bernie is more severe (Bernie endorsed and campaigned for Clinton; suppose Bernie pulls a Rubio and endorses the nominee but refuses to campaign for him) I could see more of Bernie's supporters choosing not to back that candidate.

Sanders himself will be much less of a factor in 2020. He will be even older, he will not likely run in the primary, and even if he does, he will lose the novelty feel. While it is not impossible that there will be another flag-bearer on that side, I doubt it will be Sen. Sanders himself.
