Putin Thinks The United States Is A "Parasite" On The Global Economy

Vladimir Putin said Monday that the dominance of the dollar was a threat to global markets and the United States was "a parasite", reports Reuters.

The Russian Prime Minister was talking to a Kremlin youth group while touring its summer camp north of Moscow.

"They are living beyond their means and shifting a part of the weight of their problems to the world economy," Putin said.

"They are living like parasites off the global economy and their monopoly of the dollar."

Putin later conceded that a default would have been a problem for the world economy, adding it would be "no good at all", reports RIA Novesti.

Not so sure about that, kind of doubt it.

Putin may be a lot of things, but fag and commie are not among them, and in this case, he is far more accurate than not, in his comments.

Putin has a point if he is describing our leaders.

You really think that we are parasites?

Every time there’s a global disaster the U.S. is the first to offer help.

When’s the last time you saw Russia or China offer more than $1000 bucks to aid some little turd world country through their latest tsumani, earthquake, etc?

His choice of words isn’t good - but YES - the US is able to issue debt in its own currency, has huge capital markets and can force the world to take dollars - at least for now. Indeed “seignorage” is a big advantage, but If we take it too far, the world will eventually force a change.

The USA now is like a rich teenager, living off the good name, strength and fortune that our ancestors built up.

He's making many of these statements to pick up his electoral base in the campaign against Medvedev. Kicking the U.S. is an easy goal for him. He'll sing a different tune in 2013. Let's remind him of all the nasty things he's said when he wants to make nice with President Palin, or Romney, or Perry, or Cain, or someone else not Obama.

Oh, I dunno.

Maybe something like "you need to eat your peas", or "the rich need to pay their fair share."

Totally agree with you.

Our jokers that made the decisions to go down this road are responsible. Hopelfully Putin's criticism would make them see how wrong we are.

i find myself agreeing with this commie more and more

99 weeks of unemployment pay

OK ... my post was an abbreivated attempt ...

xxxx is correct ... the U.S.A. is the best nation in the world for helping the downtrodden ... while the Commie Bolshevick bastards in Bejing and Moscow don't do a damn for anyone ... but themselves ...


To Putin's credit, he FOCUSED on America's horriffic appetite for BORROWING MONEY WE DON'T HAVE ... to spend on USELESS projects like Minority Gang welfare payments ... and damn Windmills and projects to protect the Green Snail Darter Fish ...


Polite non-racist Words can barely express the CONTEMPT for the XXXXXXXXX occupying the Whitehouse ... and the COMPLETE non-taxing Socialist LOONS who voted this ATROCITY into Office ...


Obama's goal is not simply to bankrupt America ... He lusts for a bloody civil war ... the kind of national catastrophe that Lenin dreamed of in the cold nights in 1916 in Russia ...


America's only Hope, besides Christ ?


Is that the LEGIONs of White-Guilt (now unemployed) Adult Voters will send this XXXXXXXXXXXXXX to the Siberia Gulag that he needs to ROT in ...

A fag that has the guts to tell the truth?

Well, Putin, we’re TRYING to do something about it, but apparently your comrades’ COMMIE TEETH SANK TOO FAR into America’s jugular for the nation to expel the parasites that
now make up our body.

We’re working on it from the ground up, which is something YOU, PUTIN, can never lay claim to. You had to be toppled from the TOP DOWN to get where you are today.

Who’s the parasite NOW, Mr. Nomenklatura!?

my god I sound like Quix

The overcharge reset button was Hillary’s idea. The arrows on the knob I think were Obama’s idea. Kinda like voting present.

Given Putin experienced first-hand the collapse of the Socialist system of the Soviet Union, maybe he has a point.

With the Republicans selling out (again) it might be quicker to just let them implement their stupid Socialist/Sustainable dream plan and let the whole economy fall apart.

Vladimir Putin is a soul-less, ruthless former KGB killer who would have killed his own mother if he’d been ordered to do so. He knows about as much about a market economy as a new born knows about quantum physics.

I don't know, but it looks like Putin loves his country. He probably looks far into the future and protects and grows resources.

Thank you for the reality check.

The only thing Vlad is saying behind the scenes is "do you realize most Americans really think I believe this sh!t?"

You’re welcome. Honestly, I don’t know how president Bush could have looked into this killers eyes and claim to the the ‘’soul’’ of a man he could trust? The only thing a Russian understand is strength, brute force and the willingness to use it.

He predicted the Balkanizing of America into 5 states.

Which means he’s PLANNING the splitup of the USA into five territories.
