Being a “defence ” force and not an offence force, having to support 800 overseas bases must also be a considerable factor in the relative efficiency of Russia vs USA budgets

Yes, the US Department of Offence’s 800 overseas bases must be very expensive to maintain.

I have heard before now that certain individuals in the US have been of the opinion that Russia is too large and that it’s “not fair” for one country to have so much in the way of land and natural resources. What they really mean, of course, is that they would like to see Russia divided into many small nations so that they can pick them off one by one and pirate their natural resources. It’s interesting that these US politicians never speak about Canada being too large and too rich in natural resources for one country. Canada is the… Read more »

The US Corporations already own Canada,so there is not much point in splitting it up.Same for Australia.

As quick look on the www establishes that Canada is owned by the Crown Estates on behalf of the people of the United Kingdom. QEII is merely Head of State.

All roads used to lead to Rom. Now it appears all roads lead in the end to the City of London.

The US has nothing to fear from Canada. In fact, Canada is a US asset. It’s pretty brainless obedient boy ruler is fully under Uncle Sam’s control.

The question of the reliability of GDP as a measure of an economy is an interesting one. Please come back to it.We use it because it is pretty much all there is and it is easy to quote. Alexander’s ‘hunch’ about Russia is backed up by another adjustment that should be born in mind – the size of the informal or black economy. According to figures quoted on the net, in Russia it is believed to be 34% and in Germany and Japan 8%. If the PPP figures are adjusted accordingly Russia becomes quite a bit bigger than Germany and… Read more »

“Western media and politicians love to quote nominal GDP for Russia’s economic size because it confirms what they want to believe.”

Never a truer phrase but one that applies across the political, economic and social board across neo-liberal Western so-called democracies. Neo-liberalism is an ideology that has its own elites living within their own virtual world. A virtual world that they’re constantly trying to project onto the real world, with all the disastrous consequences one would expect from that.

With the U.S dollar declining in purchasing power, and an eventual U.S dollar collapse, the U.S will have to have a realistic defence budget.
This will mean U.S bases and aggression around the world will disappear on a massive scale.

I’m sure many of us would like to think so, but whether it will ever come about, remains to be seen. The banking dynasties have control of all the money, and somehow, I cannot see that they will let America lose its position in the pecking order of the world. The global elites are the ones pushing everybody about where they possibly can, via the puppets in the White House.

I’m sure the global elites view the US military as their own personal military for carrying out their wishes, they surely wouldn’t want to lose that. After all, their wealth can only do so much on its own.

This is just the stupidity and arrogance of the West in trying to contain Russia and China either in Crimea or China sea, so that the USA can still be the EMPIRE OF THE WORLD. Well all that is finished. The world is becoming Multi-lateral and WWIII is the end of Humanity.
