The Deplorable point of view couldn't be more clear, or more sympathetic to Putin's conquest.

Op Ed from Bank, a noted warhawk and drum beater. Belarus is already a CSTO member. Belarus is just holding out for more money and slowly allowing the Russian base buildout.

"Vladimir Putin threatened to hang Georgia leader 'by the balls'

Vladimir Putin threatened overthrow Georgia's leader and "hang him by the balls" during talks with French President Nicolas Sarkozy at the height of the war between Russia and Georgia."

Putin threatening another former Soviet state now that he has a puppet American President is no surprise.

Of course, once Trump hears that it is his red state Georgia, well, that may be another story.

Exactly how does Russia annexing Belarus adversely affect anyone other than the ruling class in Belarus...I understand there are some here who might have an issue with it for some bizarre reason...the end result would be far better for Belarus than what the US has been doing globally for the last 25 years at least. Fight me.

#11, read the article. Before this thread was moved to the front page, the summary here quoted the part which laid out how it would pose increased threat against Ukraine and the Baltic States. There's also the argument that any time countries start aggressively absorbing their neighbors it creates regional instability.

You're talking to ma Russian, or a form of Russian. Increased instability and threat are selling points, not arguments against.

Mikheil Saakashvili. He had South Ossetian towns rocketed with BM-21 launchers firing direct.

He's a great US ally. He bought all new military gear from us after the Russians blew up their last army.
