I am merely pointing out about Russian Interference as opposed to China, did not mention the US which I wholly agree with you.The Russians do love to act victimised indeed. Most of the 'Russia did it' it is a political witch hunt at its finest. It Depends who you believe on the Crimea situation, did they rebel and then Vote to join Russia or was it a seizure of territory at its finest? Undoubtably, the Annexation was rushed and against international law, however it can't be denied that the area is overwhelmingly Ethnically Russian And Tartar along with the fact that a bunch of Ukrainian troops defected to the Russians during it. Russia, unlike China in the Us of A still makes a decent scapegoat
The US has installed some awful regimes. This has been mentioned ad nauseum. But to call what Russia is doing, just a little bit of tweaking in US affairs, come on Dan you surely do not believe that. That regime has annexed Crimea, has meddled in the Brexit referendum and political opponents have died, not to mention the Salisbury attack on Russian Nationals on UK soil. and now that the US has pulled out of Syria, they are bound to exert their influence in that region. Yeah they are all merely tweaks! Michael
The Interference in Bexit is alleged, when I see hard proof i'll believe it, Like the USA Democrats, largely hysteria.
The Suspicious Deaths of political opponents and Russian Nationals however, I do condemn
Russia has been exerting its influence in Syria for years now, by propping up Assad and his government with military, already been happening for a while now.
Er, no, that might not be how it happens. Xi is prez for life there, what happens if he (for example) becomes mentally incompetent and another Gang of Four ensues; how does the Politburo fix that situation without a coup of some kind?Xi does not yet have a cult on the scale of Maos along with that fact The CCP Has been purposefully attempting to avoid something like the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution from happening again, people are aware of that era. Painting a picture eh? Highly doubt something like that will happen again, people aren't as indoctrinated as they were then.
Incidentally I wasn't surprised to read this weekend that the key Trump impeachment "whistle-blower" turned out to be a member of the Obama team who heard the conversation second-hand. The Democrats need to seriously stop digging the hole that they've made for themselves with this - Hunter and Joe Biden were clearly not helping each other out in a way that was at all ethical and yet somehow they're making this a matter to try and impeach Trump about? Again, how collectively dumb is the entire US Democratic party - they'll probably get so desperate for a serious candidate they'll invite Hillary to run again - they really are that stupid.
The Democratic Party at the moment is undergoing a power struggle between the Populist 'Left' Faction of Sanders and Co and the Establishment that wants a status quo candidate. The Elites in it only crave a candidate like Biden to keep it that way. Yes, They are Really that Naive.
