As Mein Kampf makes clear, Hitler sought to unite all the people of German speech and culture into one state, or Reich, preferably by peaceful negotiation, otherwise by war and conquest... Today's drift toward war with Russia seems like a replay of the past.

Well, you are wrong.
The Russian troops stormed the airfield against UN commands.

And btw, Strelkin has now been connected with the Visegrad massacres in Bosnia.
As well as with Chechnya, Transnistria and the Caucasus. The whole derzhavist package.
And the newly appointed deputy as well.

Are you surprised that they would use old reliable people, by the way I must say I have not fully known situation in your country before. Yeltsin did have 2000 troops stationed in Estonia back in 1994. Yeltsin, Meri and Clinton finally came to agreement and those people left. My understanding is that the American government funded appartments for those people and other form of aid. I just don't understand why would president Yeltsin try to keep a foothold in Baltics or was it that they simply had no money to provide housing for those troops.

Oh he tried to exert influence there too, it just that Caucasus was more important than Baltics or Balkans. Russians would have loved Yeltsin had he started WW3.

I am not surprised.
I am surprised that they killed Bassayev, he would have proved "handy" for Kremlin in Donbass, just as he proved "handy" fighting alongside Kremlin spetsnazis in Abkhazia in the early 1990s and just as he conducted false flag operations around Chechnya. I guess Bassayev was not as reliable as Strelkov and some others.

It was much more than that.
It used to be 100 000 soviet troops in more than 700 military bases.
The handing over of the bases was gradual, but I don't think that 2000 troops could have guarded 700 bases. Besides, everything valuable was either taken with them or destroyed - everything, including the kitchen sinks and toilet stands. Have you ever seen Russian troops walking away prematurely before taking all the valuables?

Yes, it was somewhat similar to the drawout from Eastern Germany.

One only needs to look at places which still harbour Russia's troops:
Moldova, Crimea, Georgia, Armenia.

Troops are used for leverage to keep those states from integrating with the West.

Vladimir Putin is a big KARAGOZ... It remains to be seen if Russians understand this soon enough, before Putins destroys Russia economically or otherwise.

I suppose Putinko didn't keep his end of the deal, that is if good ol Shamil was involved with blowing up those appartments back in 1999. Basayev proved particulary handy when Yeltsin exerted Russia's influence to Abkhazia. Didn't they officially even charge Basayev for the bombing. I remember reading how Abkhazians, Ossetians and some Chechens played football with Georgian heads after "victory" while Basayev and his GRU mentors sit there enjoying the view.

It wasn't so much of the bases but rather the fact that militarism always plays a big part in geopolitics among the superpowers.

Well, you got your way so what's the problem??
Is it NATO?
I also remember you people wanting to join NATO so you would provoke a war between the US and Russia.
Only Russkies want war in Ukraine, you lying fatass!

No they didn't, they hoped the nazi invasion would help Ukraine escape from the Soviet Union, Western Ukrainians hate nazis and commies equally. Already spoke German? Where did you get that from?

Putin the gangster just got put on trial for his extortion over yukos and he lost.

The court in the hague says he has to pay back $50bn that he stole.

Yup, that bassy sound in the distance, the one that is clearly getting louder, that's the sound of the russian economy collapsing.

So the question now becomes: After their recent attiutudes towards shooting down civliian airliners, will the rest of the world send people to rescue the survivors from the rubble of the russian economic collapse or will they just leave the russian people buried??

Fascist Nazi trash such as yourself bore me to death, hence my copy and paste.

Idiot Nazi trash like you come on Topix spouting a lot of garbage about Putin and Russia, to make themselves feel better but, the reality is that Putin is a very shrewd politician, is the most powerful man on the Globe.

Putin has made Russia the most powerful nation on earth, he makes American politicians look weak, dumb and a lying bunch of crooks.

This is the reality, which idiot Nazi trash like you rather not think about, well too bad, you bunch of Nazis just have to live with it.

I just read about Russia losing the court case in the Hague for 50 billion. The previous owner of the oil company has the right now to register liens or caveats against russian bank accounts around the world which will seriously harm russia
