US intel: Russian spies, saboteurs infiltrating Ukraine

There are 273 comments on the Hot Air story from Mar 21, 2014, titled US intel: Russian spies, saboteurs infiltrating Ukraine. In it, Hot Air reports that:

Think of this as a successful plan redeployed. After the Euromaidan protests overthrew the Viktor Yanukovich government, Crimea suddenly filled up with military forces without insignias that began seizing buildings, roads, and eventually the entire peninsula.

Norwegians enjoy the second-highest GDP per-capita (after Luxembourg) and fourth-highest GDP (PPP) per-capita in the world. Today, Norway ranks as the second-wealthiest country in the world in monetary value, with the largest capital reserve per capita of any nation.
The Norwegian economy is an example of a mixed economy, a prosperous capitalist welfare state and social democracy country featuring a combination of free market activity and large state ownership in certain key sectors.
The state has large ownership positions in key industrial sectors, such as the strategic petroleum sector (Statoil and Aker Solutions), hydroelectric energy production (Statkraft), aluminium production (Norsk Hydro), the largest Norwegian bank (DnB NOR), and telecommunication provider (Telenor). Through these big companies, the government controls approximately 30% of the stock values at the Oslo Stock Exchange.
When non-listed companies are included, the state has even higher share in ownership (mainly from direct oil license ownership). Norway is a major shipping nation and has the world's 6th largest merchant fleet, with 1,412 Norwegian-owned merchant vessels.
The country is richly endowed with natural resources including petroleum, hydropower, fish, forests, and minerals. Large reserves of petroleum and natural gas were discovered in the 1960s, which led to a boom in the economy. Norway has obtained one of the highest standards of living in the world in part by having a large amount of natural resources compared to the size of the population. In 2011, 28% of state revenues were generated from the petroleum industry.
Of course, China's per capitas are small compared to Norway. But it has such a huge population. I do not know the numbers. But it is nearly inconceivable that Norway has more revenue reserves than China. China just spent $44 billion on the Olympics. I bet nobody in Europe will even spend $1 billion. Ain't communism such an evil and bad system!!!

The top ten countries in the world have little or no blacks. Most are in Scandinavia like Finland and Norway, where people work and make things.
The top ten worst countries are all black, where people from other countries mine and drill their resources for them.
Liberal enviro-terrorism is not conducive to funding healthcare and education. You need an industrial base.
NYC would look like Detroit were it not for those evil, rich Wall St. bankers. If dumblasio gets his way, it will.
You obviously like capitalism. I like socialism (not welfare) So lets put the two together and get a mixed economy such as we see in China.

For all of its shortcomings, I do not think Russia is bankrupt. And people in Europe have sense enough to know this. And they know that in the long run, Russia will come out on top, economically. In other words, while we bury future generations in mountains debt, they secure their futures by making sure they do not have such debt. And the differences is even more pronounced under Chinese communism. The Chinese have a HUGE public and private surplus, not debt. Their surpluses are probably bigger than our debts.
.

I also think that Russia is in the black, unlike the West which is in the red all over,

and China is, economically in even better shape.

"in the black" - a term that means one is making a profit. See Capitalism.

My gawd it just gets better and better.
