There is a strong machine against his candidacy already but the competition is bankrupt. I do think after this experience however, if Brazil gets Lula, it will break harder from the West than before. It's a delicate dance to navigate but it will get done.
Russia and China do not have consensus on Iran - there is no Russia-China-Iran axis. China has many anchors tied to its back when it comes to Iran. Anchors Russia doesn't have. Mainly Saudi Arabia trade relations, and the biggest anchor of them all; U.S $600B trade volume. When Iran gets into the SCO, we'll be progressing.... for now...it's wishful thinking.
You cannot "Revitalize" BRICS.. Is an organization doomed to fail . With CHina and India
on the Brink on war , Brazil not politically stable and very vulnerable today to US pressure.
Neither the China Beltway have a chance to work.. either. The Big Major Problem BRICS
and CHina Beltway will face ,is the lack of cultural compatibility between the nations involved ,
the lack of Influence of China or Russia or any of its leaders to counter the American one.
As long Putin or China does not become influential nations with the west , any of their initiative
they do , either BRICS or China Belt ,will become a too little ,too do any difference thing.
Putin's Pivot to Asia ,while ignoring the west existence is a big mistake. He will never take
down Americans Empire ever ,not even if all BRICS nations drop the dollar ,or all ASIA ,
while he offers nothing in change. It will only reduce US spending a bit more or less ,but it will NOT Crash the US dollar.. and reason for that is their Influence in the world is too strong to take down by mere political moves here or there. .but it will not reduce their leadership and influence in the world in any way ,any form. What sustain the US dollar is the faith ,the influence that US have over the world. Those calling for Russia to nationalize the Russian bank ,
how is Russia going to pay for its Internet? Americans business only accept dollars? How is Russians going to buy computers? or Apple products? or Microsoft ? Intel or Amd? How ????
This will only help the 5th column on Russia ,turn Russia into another Venezuela or Cuba but with nukes... and force Russians to become pirates , and get any american technology at insane prices from neighboring nations. As i said before , Putin wants to reduce American domination in the world (which is a strong influence) to help nations to become more independent ,but the Moron is doing it the wrong way.
What putin is doing will be comparable to RUssia censor American music in RUssia by banning American bands playing in Russia , While allowing Russians to connect to internet.
Someone tell the midget thinker Putin ,that reducing the use of American dollars while CHina depends on American business so much ,is not going to do anything. Russia needs to offer an alternative to the American world is as simple as that..
So that if any nation becomes isolated from the western business ,(as Russia will eventually be
) that they can offer a clear alternative to their business. To their technology ,to their banking system as so on. But focusing so much in commodities ,energy and sport promotion bullshit and soviet parades to remember the good old days of Russia will not going to do it.. BRICS is only one small step in the right direction ,by creating a way to trade in their currencies , but is far from enough.
If he continues to ignore Americans Domination and influence of their system and their business ,then he will be guilty of allowing such evil nation to continue expanding in the world and doing nothing to stop it.. Putin promotes so called "independence" but is a Morons independence . Because while Russia is independent on its military and Politics.. it continues to depend on United States Business technology ,for entertainment ,for Internet on their solid computer and software industry and does not even try hard on the things they have a lot of potential like space , that they could use to steal the show of Americans , if Russia was really ambitious as soviets were in space , but the moron don't do it. He is totally clueless President
of what he is doing ,how he helps Americans become even more powerful ,by being so weak and with no vision of the future. Russia needs to transform its economy to a very Innovative Modern one.. an Intelectual Economy that ,from where Internet ,Computers and Television came and virtual reality came. Russian needs an Engineering/scientist based economy on modern things that will make the quality of life of civilians better and more fun. and not rely on easy low risk business that every third world nation ,can easily compete with Russia. as is Food or Energy. Putin should do better to privatize all their energy business to patriotic Russian citizens billionaires and Germany and France ,to make it impossible for americans to split Europe from Russia and ask taxes or a percent of their profits and instead focus in breaking
the US domination over the world with their modern and innovative business. Putin praise how superior are their nukes and missiles than the american ones.. he knows what competition is.. then why the moron don't do it ,with other Business too ,modern business where americans have no competition in the world and dominate.?
Now they are in an embassy fight of reducing staff and Trump will be unable to end the hostilities of US on Russia ,it will only get worse. and Putin believe that inaction and hope things gets better in the future by its own .
