Is not going to work with Putin.. is as simple as that. He is an Obsolete ,outdated leader..
And if he needs 20 years in power ,to fix Russia ,then is because he is doing something wrong.
What is Putin Legacy ?
1)taking back control of the oil industry and gas.
2)and kicking from the country all those billionaires that were stealing,plundering the nation.
3)Restoring the military power (something that anyone could have done by securing a stable budget)
So Putin is not Peter the great.. or Catherine...as many will like to believe.. he is very average
the only real unique thing Putin have , the only special ability that i will not take
away from him i, and that he is quite good.. is his ability to unite the country in the same train.
So this at very least keep the nation focused more on productivity..
So from 1-10... Putin is more like a 6 .. better than the average ,but is far ,far from what
I will not mind a weak President as long he was smart.. but he is a Fool ..Putin is Patriotic indeed but
,Weak and Fool too. he is indeed not a warrior. but a Dumb monk
.. and this is the problem.
that the moron don't counter the west.. Don't have ambitions
So Putin can be far better President if at least he was so dumb .
and what evidence there is that Putin is a fool ?
1)he spend in just 2 olympic events $65 billions dollars
in moments Russia is facing an undeclared war from US and UK. seeking to destroy Russia.
2)Putin told that sports promote "Friendship" nations to come along together ... Where is the friendship with the west?
If Putin was right . the world will be at peace already. with west and Russia in a honey moon..
perhaps Putin need more olympics? maybe hosting 2-3 olympics and $100bilions dollars will make it.. ?
3)and if he needs more money to host sports ,he can cut the budget even more of Space and the military..
4)Sports are healthy according to Putin. did you knew that?
Those lifetime injuries people get , pressure
to get a medal or people killed is only our imagination.
The way i see it.. Putin is very dangerous for Russia existence , he is the biggest threat to Russia national security.
Because he promotes disrespect from the west..with his teddy cuddy bear polite behavior , buts thats not the
real issue.. the real issue is that the west IS at war already with Russia
is a very slow ,undeclared stealth war .. the west simply is aiming at Russia total destruction and he do NOTHING to fight back.. understand?
Putin told.. "well you did not listened us.. now you will listen".. at the conference of Russia new weapons..
why the west is not lose their sleep at nights and not worried about Russia hypersonic missiles? Because they know Putin is a very weak ,teddy bear ,polite idiot that will not use the weapons ,as long Americans
don't attack directly and openly Russia.
So all Americans needs to do ,is to keep the war in an undeclared way. To fight Russia in an indirect way.
They attaked Russian military base in Syria ~47 times with drones controlled by Americans and what Putin
did ? NOTHING.. complain ,complain and complain.. say how this is going to damage relations.
And this is the most important issue..[b] The West will continue attacking Russia ,shooting down their planes ,bombing Russia military bases.,killing their soldiers ,aiding terrorist attack on Russia, kidnaping civilians, starting wars against nations friendly to Russia(Venezuela,Serbia next) ,(because Putin is weak and do nothing to them) and will continue the hostilities until they stopped or Russia destroyed.
So Russia needs a pro active leader ,that FIGHTS BACK..instead of just talking and talking and talking
How Russia can fight back?
1)Defeat Americans military in a calculated battle or battles ,Force them to Peace by the use of Force..
2)Or Russia can Counter American leadership and influence in the world and lead Europe away from the American Orbit. Garryb did not understand why " Pivot to Asia" will not work ,and why ignoring Europe will not work, why Europe is so important..even if you don't like them.. because thats from where NATO comes.. without Europe ,there is no NATO and no american order..
What i am proposing the idiot do? the #2 option.. The idiot needs to counter American leadership and influence
in the world.. This is not negotiable.. he have to do this ,if he don't want to face a nuclear war with Americans.
So all Russia needs to do ,is compete for the leadership of Europe place.. Putin can't expect to continue inside
the american system ,being a passenger of their Bus and expect fair results for Russia.
So instead of Putin wasting the money of Russia ,is foolish sports ,that help NOTHING ,to fix any problem
with the west.. instead of Putin seeking to break records in farming potatoes ,or more olympic medals ,or produce the bigger nukes.. Putin needs to promote a education revolution in Russia. a High tech innovative revolution and major ambitious space program.. All this this is what will put Russia in the race for leadership of Europe.. This is what will make Russia great again.. when was LEADING the world in space.. when was in the headlines for leading
for success. This is what Russia needs a President with vision with leadership. not an outdated man , that try to
influence the west with weakness ,with the glorious Russia past..with teddy bear politeness. combined with shinny new missiles.
What is NOT a solution is what putin is doing ,sit down on his hands and wait.. and wait and wait that americans "come back to their senses". To have HOPE is not a solution.. the west will never change ,by trying to charm their hearts.. Putin Weakness/Russia lack of influence in the west is the only things that ENCOURAGE the west hostilities and disrespect. . Since they feel superior ,and with the right to rule the world ,just for being the leaders of it..
The only thing the west respect is the USE of FORCE , or Leadership in things they consider valuable. (high tech +space) and putin is doing none of them. The way things are for Russia today are so bad.. that it will have been better if Putin instead of celebrating Sochi or Wold cup ,will have used that money to get in the moon and mars 10 to 15 years earlier than planned.. Shinny new roads or parks.. while nice ,is not going to influence the west. this is a local influence only. for civilians.. Space leadership influence EVERYONE.. not only locals but the entire world.
This is the kind of things ,that Russia needs to work. Business leadership in things that influence the entire world.
Putin idiocy , putin weakness and lack of leadeship of Russia have created a very dangerous world for Russians to live.. One that Americans or Israel can continue target Russian military bases or Russian soldiers or Russian allies at will with no consequences. a world where Russian citizens are kidnapped by the FBI every time.. a world that not even the families of Lawmakers in Russian Government are safe ,since taken Hostage by Americans. Putin is creating a very dangerous world ,for Russians ... and for any nation who is friendly to them.. this is Putin legacy.
after saving Russia from the oligarchs privatization ,now is destroying it.. by not countering US leadership and influence in the world.
my only hope is that Putin don't seek re election and someone else take power.. even Medvedev will be better
option , regardless of corruption at least he shows a major enthusiasm for Technology for Silicon Valley style business. So he will be far more Pro hi tech business oriented economy in Russia. than the farming and meaningless sports of Putin.
All Russian problems can be solved with INDEPENDENCE..
a Leader that transform Russia into a TRUE independence nation ,that leads the world..
Look how "smart is Putin"
depending in American business ...
A President that allows Russia ,to continue being dependent on Americans is not acceptable..
and accept the humiliation of their nation as a normal thing and do nothing to counter the western system.. is not an option. Russia follows the American system ,American business ,American Internet ,American COmputers ,American banking system and gets later burned for it.. and later he don't understand why Russia is not treated fairly , and hope the west "come back to its senses" .
What kind of message Putin sends the world.. when
Israel can shoot down Russian military planes and bombs its allies with impunity and get away with it? or when Russia can't sell planes to IRAN ,for American sanctions?
Putin short sight vision of Russia ,lack of goals and ambitions ,lack of Independence and Business Leadership is what holds Russia back.
