    Vann7 I agree with much of what you have written here and in your previous post 343 also.  It would be good if Russia did what you said along with China.  The rest of the world would greatly benefit from a viable alternative to the corrupt US world order.  By living here in the US and knowing the American cultural and political mentality and personality; the Americans will NEVER change.   US influence in the world needs to be countered and the only country that can do that is Russia in partnership with China.  


    Indeed. Putin strategy will never work... NEVER.. he does not influence Americans , neither Influence
    Europe aside that with Cheap Gas discounts. And to make things even worse , he even praise US as the
    only super power and begged American companies in ST petersburg to help Him ,restore relations with
    America. If Putin shows weakness ,his enemies will only double down on their aggression. Unfortunately
    nobody near Putin explain this to him. No

    Just imagine someone give you transportation to your job , because you don't have a car , and then
    during the trip ,you complain about the car , that you don't like it.. that you don't like how he drive ,
    that you are upset about the travel route he picked.. etc etc..  then the driver will tell him.. them
    fine ,if you don't like my car , or how i drive.. then get your own FUCKING CAR.. and never ask again for transportation.


    So this is very similar to what Putin is doing.. he complains about the corrupt system created by Americans..
    but he does NOTHING to offer an alternative to it.. Putin don't create his own System ,his own world ,then Putin expect the west to change its hostilities.. just because Russia build a powerful army and modernize their nukes and then say please.  No  So what the west do is change the tactics.. Instead of fighting
    Russia directly with its military.. US fight Russia through economic sabotage ,through sactions ,to financing euromaidans in Russia and in any economic zone important for Russia as is Ukraine ,but also financing and arming
    of terrorism.    

    Russia,India and China ,BRICS countries united , can create this alternative to the US system..
    But to focus only in loans for roads and infrastructure is not going to do it.. they need a
    military /scientific alliance To create a new world. And a lot of diplomacy will be need so that India and China
    can solve their territorial issues.

    While I am skipping on the whole ''olympic'' clown-show (skeleton is free to watch on YouTube anyway...) I do take great pleasure in watching usual jerkoffs completely lose their shit after failing to shame Russian athletes and fans.

    And best of all it looks like OAR acronym (Olympic Athlete from Russia) is becoming badge of honor instead of scarlet letter it was intended to be. They are even making merchandise based on it already . Very Happy

    Snowflake are melting again. Did they really think that banning Russian flag will make athletes and fans forget where they came from?


    #RussiaInMyHeart: How Russia's Olympic fans are making a mockery of the IOC

    https://sports.yahoo.com/russiainmyheart-russias-olympic-fans-making-mockery-ioc-083658740.html

    GANGNEUNG, South Korea –From the packed rows of Section G1 here at the Gangneung Ice Arena, one of the most familiar chants of Winter Olympics past repeatedly rang out Sunday.

    “Ruse-i-AH. Ruse-i-AH”

    Russia. Russia.

    Officially, Russia isn’t here. The nation was banned by the International Olympic Committee in response to a wild, systematic doping and sample tampering operation at the 2014 Sochi Games that it hosted.

    The IOC, however, did allow 168 Russian athletes to compete here. They were freed because there wasn’t credible-enough proof they individually doped. That was occasionally true because the samples were already destroyed by the Russians.

    Regardless, it has created a bizarre and, at times, unbelievable mess, where there technically are no Russian Olympians. Yet everywhere you look, there’s what the IOC has dubbed “Olympic Athletes from Russia” competing with their usual brilliance.

    Here at the team figure-skating event, the Olympic Athletes from Russia are in second place behind Canada and ahead of the United States going into Monday’s medal round.

    The Olympic Athletes from Russia were, however, the unquestioned No. 1 in fan support here, where hundreds of their countrymen donned Russian flags, Russian colors and even T-shirts with a particular anti-IOC statement: “Russia In My Heart.”

    “Huge support,” said Russian ice dancer Ekaterina Bobrova. “Our citizens, you could see them in different spots of the stadium, entire slots, they were signing their songs in Russian, waving flags. We felt as if we were at home.”

    If the IOC meant to humiliate Russia, it’s mostly backfired, at least here on the ground. Instead, the Russians are here – and impossible to ignore – aiming instead to humiliate the IOC one song, one chant, one winning performance at a time.


    “You can stop Russia from being here, but you can’t stop the Russians from being here,” said Evgeni Kichigin, who traveled to the Games from St. Petersburg and wore a Russian flag as a shirt on Sunday.

    All over the first couple days of the Games, Russia has punched back – and shown the folly of the IOC expecting a split verdict (no Russia, lots of Olympic Athletes from Russia) to actually work. The IOC should have known it’s either one or the other. Russia is here or it’s not.

    Instead, you get scenes like Sunday, entire sections of the stadium waving flags and chanting pro-Russia slogans. A large group organized themselves across three rows, wearing printed T-shirts to spell out “Russia in My Heart,” so no one could miss it. The phrase adorns stickers, signs and has become a social media rallying cry for those who didn’t come but are cheering on from back home. Other Russians walk around and put a finger to their lips in a mocking “be quiet” sign, like their presence is all a secret.

    If you understood Russians, this was predictable.

    Regardless of the overwhelming facts of the case, when backed into a corner, Russia was going to come out swinging.
    It was never going to quietly accept a full ban from the Winter Games. If you count its various itineration (Soviet Union, Unified Team, Russia), it entered these games with more medals (336) and more golds (134) than any other country.

    “When they first announced they wouldn’t let us do what usually we do, I had the impression that when we come to the Olympics the support will be twice as much as usual,” Bobrova said.

    The Olympic Athletes from Russia have coaches and support staff, many of whom usually work for the Russian Olympic Committee, which adds to the farce. Their uniform colors are the familiar red, white and blue, just slightly different shades from the official Russian colors. While they marched into the games under an Olympic flag, the IOC has already said they may lift the ban on the final day and allow the Russian flag to fly at Closing Ceremonies.

    If an Olympic Athlete from Russia wins gold, the IOC won’t play the Russian national anthem from the medal podium.

    Russian fans said it won’t matter. They’ll sing it so loud no one will be able to miss a word in a scene that promises to be even more attention-grabbing than usual.

    It’ll be one IOC humbling after the next.

    “We need to be here now,” said Roman Bykov, of Moscow. “We have to support our athletes and our country. Our sportsman are heroes to just compete in this situation. This is even more difficult.”


    Many Russians disagree with the IOC verdict. This despite admissions from numerous individuals who carried out the scheme. It included not just doping, but constructing an entire building next to the Sochi testing lab so that after-hours dirty samples could be slipped out and clean ones slipped in via a hole in the wall. After the scandal was uncovered, two high-level authorities who were said to be involved mysteriously turned up dead.

    Russian media has taken the ruling as fake news and evidence of the world being anti-Russian.

    No matter the facts, fans argue, when you consider the history of performance-enhancing drugs in just about every other nation, who cares? Why punish Russia so harshly?

    “State-sponsored system?” said Bykov as he stood by his friend, Dmitrii Burkurov, who nodded in agreement. “We don’t believe.”

    What they believe is the IOC’s corruption. That and the heart of the Russian athletes. So here they are, full of Russian pride, singing Russian songs, wearing as much Russian gear as they can drape over their frames.

    They’re making a mockery of the weak-kneed IOC and turning the Olympics, even conservative figure skating, into a Russian pep rally.


    “It’s great,” pairs skater Alexander Enbert said with a smile.

    “Absolutely huge,” Bobrova, the ice dancer, echoed.

    Ruse-i-AH. Ruse-i-AH.

    And just wait until men’s hockey takes the ice.

    more interesting information..
    Everyone knows how Putins promotes a lot "healthy life" ,
    "healthy sports."

    Don't take my word about it.. my criticism of Putin ignorance ,
    about how unhealthy are sports.. and dangerous is sports..
    take the word of RT documentary.. Sports are not healthy in any fucking way.
    People get lifetime injuries or even die in Olympics trying to get first place and a  medal.
    Youth very early in life getting broken arms and legs.. Good Job for Putin. Rolling Eyes



    If Putin was educated and not a complete ignorant ,he will NOT be promoting
    any sports in Russia.. ZERO..  Going to the gym and exercises.. or running bike ,yes..
    education yes and day light exercises for health yes.... but epenis competition for medals no.
    Only promotes Ethnic Superiority of one nation over another.. this is what Sports promotes..
    divisions ,radical nationalism ,racism and lifetime injuries or even people lives too and for nothing.

    Sports are only good for skilled people who wants to make easy money... good for them.
    but any Government role should be to promote education and science. and to take care of health.
    and not to push your body to its limits and beyond.. that is what sports really do. It will make
    people get lifetime injures for bragging rights ,of a nation .about a totally meaningless competition.
    that in no way makes the nation more advanced or developed.

    Russian gets an arm or leg broken for money and to give a stupid medal to their president.



    The "wise President" should be told ,that Russians get lifetime injuries ,or even get killed..
    only because money and to try to proof how worthy their nation is to the world in a
    total meaningless competition. that does really do a difference at all in their nation.
    Judo is not healthy , Ultimate fighting that Putin promotes is not healthy.. people die there..
    Olympics is NOT healthy.people get serious injures very early in life for nothing .

    Now this doesn't means that sports should be banned... There will be always people
    that like easy shortcuts ,for fame and money , but that the government should stay away
    from sports.. 100%.. and give private business to take care of it..
    Instead Putin should promote education and science which is what really matters and will really
    help the country to move forward..
