By the way, now we cant even get a socialized medical insurance web site to work and we are lucky if we can afford to repair a bridge let alone build new roads and bridges lol.

I never heard of a tribe in Africa speaking Russian, that's strange and kind of creepy. You don't want your culture being associated with cannibals.
Cannibalism has existed all over the world.

Now, over in Argentina there are towns where German and Spanish is spoken, as well as English and Spanish in other towns. In reality, somewhere around 40 languages are or have been spoken in Argentina through the years, but the most common are: Spanish, Italian, French, German, English, and Portuguese.

250 million people speak in Russian, and not all of them are Russian. So no, I do not think.

Yes you are right and this is evident if we consider the history.

Pretty much. The issue, for those who slept through HS, was settled in 1865.

Unless the USA goes bankrupt and sells it back to Russia. There is talk that in July there will be a planned devaluation of the dollar to try to prevent a total colapse.

Really? And this "talk" comes from whom? Let me guess, the same guys who have been predicting "a total colapse" for the last 50 or 60 years?

You must understand that Russia is returning to the arena and it means that U.S. domination will no longer one-sided. Not a good economy. The U.S. dollar held today due to the army. 50-60 years ago, the U.S. economy saved moving their production to China and Saudi Arabia alliance. Today things have changed. Saudi Arabia today cares about its citizens first and foremost.


Why do you think the U.S. is so eager to rid Europe from dependence on Russian gas and oil?

But in any case I do not think that Russia needs of Alaska and the U.S. allow it.

Of course ordinary Americans want to believe that their voice can influence policy. But this is not so ,101 years the United States does not belong to Americans

Yep thats true, the best thing one can do as an individual american is to have enough skills and expereince to be a valuable free agent in the world market and then leverage those skills/assets in what ever culutre you mesh with and who will give you the most favorable conditions to live and work.

If Russia is smart they will loosen the screws as america is tightening them causing a brain drain out of the USA. Most white american engineers and scientists wont go to china because well they are not chineese (and the living conditions are way worse in china) but Russia or germany is not really a stretch.

Also Russia needs to finish purging communism out of its system and start quitly getting rid of these old timer ex/KGB guys that are still fighting against the new Russia. I know Putin is ex KGB but I think he is smart enough to see that communism is what destroyed the solviet union.

Yes, you're right, but Putin does not have unlimited power as Stalin or Khrushchev. As for the communists, I do not think they can do some sort of harm today. Communists have worldwide including in the United States. There is no more chance of communism, although the idea is good enough. It's bad when all people are equal and almost brothers? As for the Soviet Union in the USSR was not communism or when. It was sort of communism. (Was only partially) I would not want to pollute the theme of Alaska. To destroy the US economy. Russia just need to start selling their resources for rubles. This will weaken the dollar the maximum will and crash. That is why the United States wants to rid Europe of Russian resources. But Russia has one more ally is China. if you notice that China is basically copy Russian technology.Because they are cheap and reliable.
