Putin Prepares For Invasion of Europe

Yes, Russia's czar has imperial ambitions — global ambitions. He wants war. He needs war and from the looks of it, that's exactly what he's preparing for:

Figures released by the Russian Federal Treasury have confirmed that Russia's defence budget has been cut by 25.5% for 2017, falling from RUB3.8 trillion (USD65.4 billion) to RUB2.8 trillion. :roll:

The reduction represents the largest cut to military expenditure in the country since the early 1990s. :o

As we type these words, the Russians are greasing their tank treads with the blood of Al Nusra and other moderates, LGBTQ-friendly knitting clubs in Syria. :x

The rape of Aleppo did not fulfil Putin's bloodlust. He's coming for Europe. And then the world. :x :x

I am prepared are you? We have a miniature Pincher cross Chihuahua ‘guard’ dog and when she is told ‘THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING’ she high tails it to the front patio doors and barks like crazy ......... until I tell her that everything is OK ........ it was just fake news. :D

Bloody good job she can't read the newspaper, she would never stop barking! :lol: :lol: :lol:

the same story repeated over and over again.
The Russians:



Rough and partial Google translation

I remember they were saying the Russians would come
to stretch blood on earth
burn the world, n 'grab, n' rape
but the Russians never came

Others were saying the Russians would come
peace to carry on Earth
for all to have some future under the sun
but the Russians never came

The only one that came in my life is you, only YOU.
forget them all
Hope is just to 'be together

This hope that I only
saw in posters and paintings
they took the fear and they threw it to the world
those in black uniforms
merchants of fear, rappers of hope

Given Russian perceptions of the threats arrayed against them, why would they cut defence spending so drastically? Image

Having nukes is the ultimate defense, no?

True, but not really a factor in this context.

Russia has increased its defence budget by about 20% a year for the past 5. With stated Armed Forces modernisation aims which should have seen that continue. Something's obviously changed.

I have yet to meet a Russian / Belarussian who dislikes and derogates the West. Before visiting Belarus I had a perception
Formulated by western press. I soon discovered that all that I had consumed was mere crap.
They love Coke, crazy for McDonald's and adore western music.

Most certainly I don't look Russian and have never felt uneasy or not wanted.
They are friendly and they have a sense of humour, they just do not laugh at a drop of an ....ushenka :lol:

Maybe, just maybe, Putin has come to a very obvious conclusion that, as US spending on ‘defense’ is more than the rest of the Planet put together and the costs of maintaining and supporting 800 – 1000 military bases in over 100 different countries just to defend US interests against threats from whoever .............. all this ‘defense’ could end up bankrupting the country and the whole hegemonic New American Century plan, will implode. :roll:

Or maybe Putin is covertly planning a ‘colour revolution’ of his own in the USA? There is the same discontent with the system in the US as there was in the old USSR and many smaller examples since, where the US has covertly (CIA) capitalised on this and initiated their own colour revolutions? :o

One thing is for sure Putin never does anything without reason, does not boast or threaten others and has an pretty impressive record in achieving results. :wink:

But all the time the Western populace respond just like our little dog to the message that “The Russians are coming!” then the US Military Industrial Complex has little to worry about at the moment, the NATO alliance should keep their order books full? :D

FWIW, I certainly don't lie awake at night worrying that "The Russians are coming". Although, I thought it was a good film. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IEWWRbn4zG0

You're probably right. Already spending about $600 billion a year Trump has of course decided that isn't enough and is increasing it by not much less than Russia's defence budget. :shock: I'm not sure whether that will break the bank. It didn't for Reagan though and having control of the World's reserve currency probably helps. But - you will know a lot more about that than me.

It's just as well that Don and Vlad are good friends I should think.

Well, if you're placing your hopes in a popular revolution in the USA, I think you've missed it. It's called Trump :D

I'm sure you know why the Russian defence budget is being cut though - really. It's to do with the drop in the price of oil, a collapse of the Rouble against the $ (with horrendous inflation) the cost of their Ukraine activities and the associated Western sanctions biting, rather than some sort of magnanimous peace gesture.

Speaking of Pavlovian responses to messages:

I can't speak for Paphitis. However, had he taken the trouble to look into it he would have found that:

The author of the article, Mr Riley Waggama, is the Deputy Editor of "Russian Insider". A Moscow based media outlet of which Wicki says "The website was criticized for its pro-Russian stance, considered to be alongside several highly visible partisan outlets such as RT, Ruptly and Sputnik." Funny ole fing. :wink:

Just to give a flavour to riveted readers for Mr Waggama. Some of his other articles are:

"Cambodia Receives $500 Million Bill From US For Genocide Services Rendered"

"West Shrugs as Ukraine Commits ISIS-Style War Crime"

"75 Percent of Americans Mistakenly Believe Russia, Not Diabetes, Will Probably Kill Them"

"Separatists Seize Assets of Two-Faced Oligarch. Donetsk Is Now a True People's Republic"

"Russia's Athletes Need to Lawyer up and Sue the Xenophobic Pants off WADA and the IOC"


Basically, the usual anti-West line to be found on such sites. Whether people regard it as "Russian propaganda" or - let's get trendy - "Fake news" is a personal judgement. What it clearly isn't though is an objective POV (albeit cloaked in satire).

Here's a picture of Riley. The one on the left. He looks about 18.
