I simply cannot tell who is stupider anymore, Trump or Putin.

This just in.

Russia stupidly buys gold

Read.

Putin talks about a big new fiscal expansion, which will be "paid for" with spending cuts and new taxes even though he has unlimited spending power in ruble.

And we now find out Russia's been stupidly buying gold for years. Why??

This is a total waste of financial and real resources and an even stupider subsidy to the mining industry.

Then there's this...

Russia's empty threats about retaliation against U.S. strikes on Syria. "We'll shoot down the missiles and target launch sites."

What happens? Russia sits by passively and watches an ally, Syria, get bombarded.

Russian whining about U.S. and the West "not being fair and not subscribing to international law," as if the West could give a shit.

Russia allowing the people in Donbass to get slaughtered by the Ukrainian Nazi regime that the U.S. put in place.

Russia selling its oil bounty to the U.K, preventing U.K. residents from freezing to death, while the U.K. smears Russia with baseless allegations, false flags, etc.

In bed with China now? The two are natural enemies over the long term.

On and on.

Let's face it...Russia has no "long game." It's long game is subservience to the West and the neoliberals who are salivating over the country's vast resources.

Dumb. This country is so badly run. I used to stick up for Russia. I can't anymore. I can't support idiots, just like I am off the Trump train and now I am off the Putin train. This guy is maybe a bigger idiot than Trump.

I simply cannot tell who is the stupider of the two right now.

"Russia sits by passively and watches an ally, Syria, get bombarded."

Mike Trump probably called Putin and asked that they maintain the current deconfliction procedures and Putin did... so then Trump owed him one and killed the additional sanctions Haley was all excited talking about over the weekend... Trump changed his mind in the face of Putin's accommodations...

Now Trump is removing even some of the previous sanctions the other day:

"Prices of aluminum have fallen more than 12% since last week, when the Trump administration walked back sanctions against Russian giant Rusal Co."

Those 2 are taking turns stepping it down over there...

The whole "Russia!" thing is an Obama people LOSER policy from those leftist freaks Trump is trying to get out from under... he cant do it in a day...

Let's see what happens with Frau Merkel next week... maybe Trump pulls the whole Russia sanctions...

Wrong on multiple counts. Assad is still in power and Russia's weapons systems have been demonstrated for the bullies to see. Gold buying is a hedge for international dealings. Putin is a nationalist, not a globalist, and his interest is 1 - the survival of Russia (which means avoiding WWIII) and 2 - the improvement of Russia (which means developing Russia), both of which are in direct opposition to the globalist neocon cabal.

Putin is working geopolitics with caution and subtlety, as opposed to the US - which doesn't know the meaning of those words.

Without doubt. The only question is to what, and which set of idiots will be in charge.

“which set of idiots”

No argument from me there...

He spoke a lot of sense before being elected, but he didn't half look like the last person you would as president. But Hilary was so scary and Trump was an unknown so people took the risk. The choice was terrible.
