Spiegel is toilet paper. There was never any agreement that NATO would refuse former Soviet-bloc states access to NATO if they wanted it. Frankly, we should have let Patton drive his tanks into Moscow when we had the chance. Would have saved a lot of lives and kept us from decades of Soviet subversion, the fruits of which we are reaping today.

Obama surrendered the Space Race and the Cold War, reversing decades of established history.

Cruz is a good guy but Putin isn’t Lenin, he’s Tsar Alexander.

Ergo, it ain’t the CCCP that Putin is rebuilding.

Its going pretty slowly so far.

Stalin had the help of Hitler and he inherited the Czarist Russian empire.

Russia wont be moving into Eastern Europe any time soon.

Sarah can see Russia from her window.

It’s not. Don’t forget Putin is a KGB man, the visible head of the soviet structures in Russia, a country that is still supporting communist movements and our enemies across the world. His posing as some kind of Czar with traditional values is merely a scam. His behavior, murder and abuse of his own people, point him out to be an atheist, or, perhaps, even an occultist, considering how big the occult is in modern Russia.

I agree with Cruz with just about everything except this, in which he’s just plain wrong. Communism and the USSR have NOTHING to do with Putin’s moves.

A distinction without a difference. The result is the same. Corruption to favour a ruling elite, persecution of all opponents and the suppression of free speech, and force to expand Russian territory. Putin may not have wild-eyed ideas of taking over the world but he certainly intends to create a Greater Russia and is willing to partner with anyone (i.e. the Chi-Coms and thuggish Middle East regimes) to weaken the influence of the old Western alliance.

As I see it Putin doesn’t have any particular attachments to whatever system of government Russia is using as long as it works to keep him in power and it keeps him on the TOP end of said power!

Russia is an historical enemy of this country. They relish that role and their foreign policy supports our biggest enemies such as Iran.

People should think twice about supporting one of America’s enemies.
