@hawkeye10,
hawk, It's not about Putin's bank account. Don't you even have a mind to think with?

That one, and the one who launched a Russian reset, wants to lead from behind, and announced an Asian pivot...catch phrases of a fifth grader all, and all of which never happened.

Garbage not only from the point of grammar, but from what you're trying to say.

NATO sees 'high probability' of Russian invasion in east Ukraine, Moscow says sending aid convoy

Dont they know how the resulting further isolation of Russia would deplete Putins bank accounts??? There is no way he would want to do that, Putin is all about the money...or so we are told here at A2K.


No, that's not what anyone is told here. In the first place, it is your unsubstantiated claim that Russian isolation would deplete Putin's bank account. I suspect that, as is the case with the other Russian plutocrats, he has gotten as much cash out of the country as he is able to do, and still maintain his princely life-style. At all events, Putin, just because he is cynical and corrupt, cannot be assumed to be as short-sighted as you are. Just because your ability to assess the situation is limited doesn't mean his is.

From the BBC, not exactly sabre rattling.
Quote:
Ukraine and Russia say they have agreed to a Red Cross-led humanitarian aid mission to the eastern Ukrainian rebel stronghold of Luhansk.

The Kremlin earlier announced it was working with the Red Cross to send a humanitarian aid convoy to the region.

The EU Commission chief has warned Russia not to carry out unilateral military action "under any pretext".

Ukraine and Western governments had previously objected to Russia sending any aid into the region.

The Red Cross has not yet commented on the latest announcements.

Subject to confiscation by Western governments, if it can be found. A lot of that money is in Europe, in the form of real estate and companies, and though it has been run through a bunch of shell companies investigators should be able to sort it out and take hold of the wealth.

@hawkeye10,
First you deny that Putin has looted Russia, but now you know where the money is. Don't you realize how obvious it is that you must make this sh*t up s you go along?

Jesus christ, not you too, another inhabitant of fantasyland. The way Obama is gutting the defense budget " will" is actually "would" which is actually " when Hell freezes over would"........there is no money to make the plan happen ( see the plan to sent men to mars for illustration).

I do not agree that Mr. Obama is gutting the defense budget.

The sequester is a bit of a problem, but important programs like the F-35 are being shielded from the cuts. I expect that the restructuring of our nuclear arsenal will go ahead exactly as planned.

Plus this shouldn't be all that expensive. We already have the pieces fabricated for nearly 500 of these warheads. All we need to do is disassemble existing warheads and reassemble the pieces differently. And when we reach the point where we do need to fabricate new parts, we have ample supplies of refined material to fabricate them from.

It isn't like we'll have to breed/enrich all the plutonium and uranium from scratch.
