You can't see it, but we can.

I suggest reposting.
good. thanks. not sure what happened that's why i wanted to ask before i had any sort of free speech rant or hissy fit. sometimes posts disappear or are not posted properly due to an innocent mistake by the poster themself.

here is an example of censorship, but from the other side of the argument. it's ugly.

Russia to expand its worldwide military presence:

http://news.yahoo.com/russia-expand-...5TQxwAqu_QtDMD

At the time, our CinC and SecDef start cutting our military capabilities (while leaving the pork in place, as Gone Postal has noted)

As long as these guys are in office, we are doomed.

it seems that the guy who banned them is pretty full of himself, based on the article you posted.

banning discourse, especially on controversial issues, is the sign of a cowardly intellect in my book, providing that the debate is presented in a civil fashion.

the other major powers all sense weakness in the leadership. it was exposed as early as the iraq war, although obama's recent foreign policy failures don't help matters much. the other powers are beginning to think that those in charge over here are inept and have been for quite a while. i don't think that putin "hates" the US but there are certainly other areas in the world where they do, with murderous rage in some cases (we could go on about just why that is, but it's a different issue). the american military and intelligence agencies are the only thing keeping these wolves from the door.

putin is obsessed with returning to the glory of the soviet union. during that time, they had ships and bombers stationed at various places around the globe, including latin america. after the collapse, the soviets/russians were forced to withdraw from much of their overseas bases. putin wants it back. in putin's perfect world, the soviet union would be reconstructed just as it once was, and he is going about trying to get that done (minus physical occupation of the satellite countries , which he seeks to control through economic domination instead). i can't help but imagine putin chuckling to himself when he hears john kerry making threats against him regarding ukraine. russia, and even the principalities that preceded the existence of russia, are deeply connected historically to ukraine. imagine if there was a serious military conflict brewing in mexico that could spill over into the US, where one of the factions was vocally anti-american, and sergey lavrov (russia's equivalent of john kerry) warned the US that he would not allow it to interfere in mexico. it's hilarious to even imagine. that's how the russian leadership regards ukraine. this is completely obvious to anybody who studies russia and russian history, but the current crop of fools in charge in the US just don't seem to have a clue (about anything!).

With your view of Russian motives, why did you disagree so vehemently with my post about the current situation in the Ukraine being Vlad's shot at Anschluss.......which is the peaceful takeover of a foreign government, which is essentially what Vlad managed in the last series of Ukrainian elections?

I don't either. However, I think Putin would like to HAVE the U.S. He longs for the glory of the Soviet Union (imaginary as that was), and is trying to put the band back together. We're helping him achieve that with our lame foreign policies and stand-down attitude. Our administration acts like they are unaware that Russia is gearing up. In addition to the Russian Army, who may go practice in Ukraine soon, their naval forces have been undergoing modernization and upgrades for years. They have all our communications cipher keys, thanks to Snowden. And Putin still has a whole stable full of road-mobile SS-25s that were returned to Russia from Belarus under Nunn-Lugar, in operational condition, not to mention all the stuff in the ground than landed on Russia's books when the USSR broke up. Wonder what kind of condition that stuff is in...
