A Lot of America bashing on TV. They are not perfect but most of the free world has slept well under their watch. Can anyone here honestly say the world would be better under China or Russia? 

Exactly. People forget that it is human nature for people to want to be on top of the power pyramid. Some country is always going to wield the most power. 

 

US is definitely not close to perfect, but there is not much scarier than the idea of totally corrupt Russia or worse China ruling the world.

Hope the Chinese join the party too and get rid of the American wannabe Gods.

Clever move by Putin. He is streets ahead of any other leader on the world stage. I do worry though that the Neo-con nut cases, like Bolton and Pompeo running the US would rather start WW3 than lose face. 

To me this is similar to Libya and Syria. Maduro has strong support among the populace otherwise he would have fallen already. Similarly Assad has huge support among Syrians which is why the US was unwilling to allow him to enter any post-transition election. Also Gadhaffi would have fallen if he lacked popular support, it required direct US/UK participation in airstrikes to turn the tide against him in the civil.

Well said!

I actually feel quite relieved that today Russia, China, and Iran are serving as a counterbalance to the USA's bullying.  Lets face it, they surely couldnt possibly be as ruthless and self centered as the USA.

Agree with smedley it will require leadership Donald?

I doubt if it will happen. US has lots of short term oil and gas reserves as does Russia.

 First you deplete and cost the Russians to find out the cost to ship to Russia is astronomical ( not that either country needs it in the short term)

 Then you put pressure on countries like India to stop importing oil from Venezuela because it is cheaper from Arabia.

Russia and Venezuela choke. Big input, no output. Russia demands corruption but its host has oil but no facilities.

It is a win for US, because Russia is nearly bankrupt with the effort in Syria and Ukraine. It is called attrition.

The west did it in the cold war (which under Putin never stopped) Russia is economically poor. US wins and

 while a gang of criminals in Russia rule, they always will.

The gang in US has a larger resource base. And a tiny bit of democracy to support it.

why only a 100 if they really want to help the Venezuelan people?...

Advisors perhaps, not fingers on triggers? How many do they need to establish themselves? how many would have to die, to invoke a huge Russian build up? This is symbolic, at the very least, and a forewarning of what might happen if the US ramps up its meddling in Russia’s sphere of influence.

 

the US could have incorporated Venezuela more firmly within its sphere, but chose not too.... this is a repercussion.... it’s not quite as close as Cuba.... but way better positioned.

 

what a failure by A45!

Don't blame Americans for what Bolton and DEEP STATE does. These are globalist hold overs from previous sold out presidents. There sure is many here that point fingers at Americans ( many who are well aware of the detrimental effects the the globalist"s imbedded in our government same as your's. If you want to sling <deleted> at us I would suggest you go look into your own mirror ( mess ).

After reading some of the posts by Americans making claims about the altruism of their country, I'm reminded that, once again, George Orwell is worth reading.  No, not 1984 or Animal Farm, but Burmese Days:

 

'Our burra sahib at Mandalay always said', put in Mrs Lackersteen, 'that in the end we will simply leave India.  Young men will not come out here any longer to work all their lives for insults and ingratitude.  We shall just go.  When the natives come to us begging us to stay, we shall say "No, you have had your chance, you wouldn't take it.  Very well, we shall leave you to govern yourselves."  And then, what a lesson that will teach them!'
 

Didn't happen quite like that. Instead, the "natives" went begging to get into the UK, apparently in such numbers that they almost now rule the place.
