I’ll save ’em the trouble and comment first. Who cares?

BTW: Why so down on Luka for following the rules-based international order bylaws?

Bingo. If the US or EU do that it’s ok, anyone the US or EU is against then it’s bad. Hypocrisy at its finest.

They made the bed and left the door open. So a travelling bear decided to sleep over. Much ado about nothing. I’m sure he found the bed ‘just right’.

The do as we say and not as we do days are over.

I’m sure quite a few people found the Euros’ barking dogs quite amusing, led by the usual mutts. An unheard of ‘act of terror’! Unprecedented since the dawn of flight. Hundreds came within an inch of their lives! When will Belarus become a ‘normal nation’ that would never dream of such a thing. Sanctions, more sanctions. Pile on the sanctions!

Blah, blah, blah and a big yawn.

I’d like to see a more progressive Belarus myself, but not the way of these heathens.

If tomorrow Belarus held free and fair elections overseen by an uncompromised OSCE (big challenge there), it still wouldn’t have meant a damn to these heathen regime-changers. They need puppets.

Naivete is no defense for the simpleton and no disguise for the cunning.

If Russia should happen to agree to a summit, it should be set for a date after Nord Stream 2 has been completed.

Did you miss out the word “not” after “we’re”? That would make it honest.

It seems to be a case of the 2014 US destabilization of Kiev’s government has resulted in America getting a kick in the balls for their trouble. The check-mate Russian mobilisation of 100,00 troops, heavy armaments and even Field Hospitals to the border with Ukraine drove home the simple fact that, in that sector of the globe there is now and will always be only one geopolitical master.

I think it drove home the fact that Russia has finally had it up to its eyeballs with this western nonsense and isn’t up for playing any more games.
