hahahaha... same old euro bullshit... we are the civilised ones... until you cross us.
Muslim terrorists have nothing on christian crusaders for violence and ruthlessness.
911 was a responsible response to US actions around the world...
As for our answer to the terror attacks...our nations answer silenced ISIS. After those oeprations ISIS was no longer capable to operate in France. We targeted their families. They saw their families die and so did they.
Dick.... your bombing of Libya and Syria created tens of thousands of new followers for ISIS around the world... and the terror attacks in France keep coming...
As for Skripal, Gary nobody believes anything. Its diplomacy. Its in french interest to keep the conflict running. Maybe it was even done by ourself. Some details indicate this.
If it was my job, they would be dead... wait until they are on a bus with French tourists in London and blow the bus up... next mornings headline on page 5... a bus was blown up in London yesterday... we would have put it on page one but it seems it was not the IRA, and two Russians and some French people died... in fact we only mention the incident because it was a new bus...
It happened short before worldcup. It did some damage against Russia, it lost its value and is not pushed for any longer
It was excellent... they should keep doing that sort of thing... one english drug addict died so no harm no foul... the more the west separates itself from Russia the better it is for Russia... Russia is a huge resource, and it is also a shortcut transport route between Asia and the EU... but if the EU wants to follow US commands and distance itself from Russia then the rest of the world will only benefit... transport to Asia from Australia and New Zealand is relatively quick and cheap, and for the US, Russia is only a potential competitor... but they wont say potentially a huge ally of the EU... if the EU listens to the US it can continue to trade with the US and spend the extra costs to keep trading with Asia, and the US will be happy. Or it could tell the US to mind its own business (and by the way that is exactly what the US is doing... Minding ITS business...), and use Russia to trade much faster and cheaper with Asian countries... including China, but also Japan and South Korea and Malaysia and all the other growing economies there...
But the EU is Americas bitch... American sanctions have cost the US very little because there was very little trade with Russia and that which their was... still seems to be continuing... they still buy Russian rockets and Titanium from Russia still goes into US aircraft including Boeings and F-35s... On the other hand trade with Russia for the EU was something like 100 billion dollars a year and that has collapsed because of US SANCTIONS...
EU can't even lead itself and you think it can lead the world...
You want tell me Russia doesnt do such stunts? Thats naive.
Wish yu happy new year
New Year is already 10 hours old here...
You make a big mistake. Killing can be civilized if done with style.
The response to the terrorists was not pure bombing. In most cases kill team were send who dealt with them and their families.
And christian crusaders? Are you for real? You do know the crusades were a response to almost 500 years muslim agression?
As for Skripal...nobody wanted them dead. If you want blame someone, let them alive to tell the tale. You are rather ignorant about whats going on in the world.
Same about your bullshit about EU-Russia trade.
We still trade what we want. Gas and Titanium. Beside that Russia has nothing to offer. And the majority of transport is done via ship but also per train. Name me a single train from asia that was stopped from Russia.
Putin is in desperate need for money.
Australia and even more so small new zealand are no competitor for EU.
Too tell you how much bullshit you spew, is Russia going to build a channel from China to EU so cargo ships can go through Russia? I have a hint for you...trains can never be as cheap as cargo ships and also not as efficient.
You say USA still buys Titanium and rockets from Russia? Fine, We also buy Titanium from Russia. So you say we should stop buying Titanium from Russia or what?
What we dont buy from Russia is rockets, because we build our own.
To get your numbers right, Trade between France and Russia at no point was above one billion.
And recently it is rising.
You have the slightest idea why the Nordstream 2 pipeline is still under construction even so USA want stop it?
Its because France defends it. Because french corporations are involved.
France always stands for its own interests and defends it fiercly.
Who you think countered Trumps sanctions? Merkel was in pure fear and tried to calm things down, when trump put tariffs on EU products.
It was France that started the counter attack. Which forced the EU to answer. To take over 25 billion € from Google and Apple. To install counter tariffs on american products.
In the end Trump gave by, because we put our tariffs on his voter base. Punished small american farmers, targeted republican voting states.
Does that mean we must be friend with Russia? No, we side with Russia where it suits us and we use conflict where this suits us better.
It would be idiotic to drop the sanctions on russia in certain fields.
Want one example? We want Titanium from Putin. We drool over it...guess what happens to Titanium price since we put Russia under sanctions?
Vladi needs the income...to compensate for the sanctions and has to sell more Titanium. This drops the price.
Where do you see me say that i want EU to lead the world? The world is way below us. The EU must serve first and for all our own interests. France above anything.
The trade war USA-China for example is pure gold for us. The conflict with Russia adds positive aspects for that. We pick whats good, stay out of most of it.
As for Russias stunts, we all know them. It amusies me that you claim to be smart but believe that Russia as diplomatic player acts like a catholic nun.
Do you dont make new years party over there?
