There's little doubt that Putin has imperialist ambitions. Let's hope he stops at Ukraine and doesn't try messing with NATO. That wouldn't end well for anyone.

The real story here is the withdrawal of BP, Shell, and especially Exxon from partnerships to develop Russian oil and modernizing its creaky oil infrastructure.

BP and Shell were both lessor presences on Russia, after both companies were victims of Russian unwillingness to honor their commitments. Basically, the Russians stole the investment and technology that the western companies had suplied.

Exxon came into the mix in a big way, when BP reduced its role.

Why do you think that Trump made Exxon’s CEO his Secretary of State??????

It was a clear signal to Moscow at the time.

Of course, it was after Flynn blabbed Trump’s intention to lift Russian sanctions after his election.

Now the Western companies are withdrawing.

Which will make the Russian economy dependent on Chinese technology, and Chinese, Asian and African emerging markets as an outlet for their oil, and their major source of hard currency.

But that relationship will be a dependent one. Russia will be driven in Beijing’s arms, on Beijing’s terms.

The rest of the world is tired of oil wars, and the kinds of brinksmanship that the Russians engaged in with their gas supplies to Europe, or the machinations of OPEC.

Renewables erase these concerns, and devalue the influence of countried like Russia and Saudi Arabia.

That will be one of the long term effects of Putin’s invasion.

I saw that on the news last night. I doubt that the average Russian soldier has the stomach for war-especially against the stiff resistance which they were not expecting.
Russian "soldiers" in planes must be very scared of pop guns when they destroy buildings and everyone in them from the air. Meanwhile, in America, Biden's message is: Let's take away guns from law-abiding Americans.

What does one have to do with the other?

Broad statement that is BS.

I was talking about the claim that Biden wants to take guns from Americans.
The NRA gets the idiots on the right to rally around that every time there is a D in office. So far no D president has ever attempted to ban all guns from citizens and most likely never will in our lifetime. However idiots will still claim it every time......

It's pounded into them by the radical right wing media daily. It's a party built on lies.
