SATIRE, you know funny-ha-ha and not to be taken seriously, although the basis of it was in fact correct. Maybe you should have checked that out rather than the life history of the author?

But it's not mutual. The US under Trump have just declared an increase of about $50 billion a year to almost $650 billion. To put that into context the total current Russian budget is about $65 billion, projected to reduce to $48 (for reasons previously outlined). If I were Putin that wouldn't leave me with a warm feeling.

Russia has realised that they will go the way of the U.S. unless they behave themselves in the hope that said beings will treat them with respect, which is likely. I am merely reporting what I have witnessed, like the pan-dimensional beings I have no interest in aiding the psychopaths with technology that they would abuse.
