I cant understand why any military leader would do this. Must be a personallity trait of the narcisstic. I would never tell anyone i was about to kill them or how.
he's not military , he's political science .... , he know the chinese , way better than the west does , this is big to them , they've not made a single comment back . look at what china has said about the 2500 marines coming here to Oz , about what vlad said ?, not one peep
despite china's communist ethos , its still very much ancestor respect warlord ideology in mindset , to target the leaders directly is a threat , to wipe out their hairs and succsesors and have no-one to remember them in ceremony for ever ( as top party people are now enjoying ) is hell to them ... that he said it openly as a leader who can do just as he states .. to them showed his resolve .. people at that level do not make statements like that , not to the Chinese ..
china wont go Russia with putin in charge , someone who would fight a conventional war limited nukes etc , yeah they are set for that , relying on numbers and politics and opinion to later sue for peace while they hold the advantage , , and once they have sibera to vladivostok they'll take out taiwan ..
despite his games i want him on our side ..
let Russia bear the brunt of the upcoming islamic alliances then uprisings against area's like serbia paris tajikistan and all the other little "stans" around there , and pakistan .. it'll fall to the islamists sooner or later
let him bring all the little stans under a new Russian union ,
worry if he does a back flip and pacify's china and the islamists ..
putins a target to many including the globalists
he wants a strong financial trading Russian Union ,
russian justice has always been harsh , big deal ..
but if your a average joe and not political theres no hassle besides crime and drunk drivers
i have a ball in russia .. love the place and the people and a lot of what they do
and how they do it .. it's a polite society
and one thing putin is doing is pushing the Christian ethos . helping the Christian church grow , while limiting Mosques ,
hard wark , pay for work , paying taxes ( almost no-one in Russia besides business's pay taxes) but the EU and Un are making it all hard for him .. so he goes Job tyovmat (sp?) the the world and makes $ from his three big cash cows , gas minerals and guns
if you cut trade with China , restart your own manufacturing and have a small outsource to Russia instead
he'd be a totally different puppy , just stay out of his domestic affairs .. and you'd be helping yourselve a heap ,
just my view ..
