That said, all of his predictions never came true and always went on the news every week to revise his predictions so that after making hundreds of predictions, one would end up "true". The guy is a nobody and is simply pandering to liberalist economic ideas from US.
Vann at first didnt believe me. Now he is spouting off about it. Simply throw the guy in jail.
While the US is definately economically screwed, everyone says its "all right". In Russia, when things are getting tough, people cry hard. Wonder why.
Unfortunately you are right..
Because i don't think he is an idiot. When he began to compare Russia with other BRICS members ,
and use it as an example of "how you can be prosperous and without sanctions" ,i wanted to slap his face.
As if other BRICS nations were located in Europe. The western anglozionist elite simply cannot allow Russia and Europe to become close allies..because something like that will be the end of NATO and US ofence shield ,that will be like winning the game with a homerun with bases loaded for Putin. and this is the real reason of the sanctions and it have nothing to do with Ukraine or Crimea ,but simply with splitting Europe from Russia as much as possible. If nothing happened in Ukraine ,Victoria nuland will have done the euromaidan in Georgia and do exactly the same script that they did in Ukraine.. ie.. 1) Rusophobics comes to power 2)start bombing ethnic Russians in south ossetia 3)to provoke Russia to invade 4) and for US senate and congress justify the isolation of Russia.
Probably kudrin is racist or cannot imagine Russia becoming very close to China.. is suspicious how he did not mention china powerful economy and their readyness to help Russia.
For me.. This is a Huge opportunity for Russia to become 100% self sufficient.. which is the best thing in all this.
It will slow down their economy for couple of years but also will push them to really Compete with USA
like never they have done before.. Not only in space or its military technology. but also in modern technology
for business use,for health use and for entertainment. Russia need to stop spending in Nukes and fully concentrate in things that can get the world attention in great things they do and help attract countries to the Russian orbit and their trade block..
1)Accelerate their space program.. moon and mars travels with rovers not in 2030 but in 2016-2017
2)Triple the budget of Russia space program and have as Goals of a moon manned landing by 2020 with the construction of a base.
3)Compete with Intel , Microsft and Apple. what they sell. (yotaphone is a really good start)
4)heavily promote the Russian movie industry and gaming industry.
IF Russia government can do that ,in less than a decade it will have most of Europe on its orbit and without firing a single shot , the crimean way.. simply ,fully embraced and supported.
As a bonus sending unmanned rovers to Saturn and Jupiter moons before NASA with live videos.(a moon base too) that will truly steal the show and have everyone cheering Russia for months and years people discussing about how developed is Russia.. this will create a massive interest in people to know more about the modern Russia.. and Tourism will skyrocket to know more about Russia ,and also attract the best students in the world to move to Russia and help with their industry.
