I guess they reopened, changed the name to "tasty" , and everything is exactly the same right down to the big macs, so all that happened is mcdonalds is losing the money they siphoned off in royalties/fees, etc. The russian people didn't suffer a bit.



and the 17% inflation in russia?

i read it;s going down, while ours is not.

The point is that sanctions have failed, their effects on russia were not nearly what we anticipated and they have adapted to them far more quickly than anyone thought.

In fact the sytemic and likely permanent changes they're making to their trade relationships will likely benefit them enormously in the long run. Meanwhile the US and especially europe are the only true victims.

wrong it is going down. Slowly. Sanctions are long term they don't happen in 1 day. You need a finance newspaper. Russia is in serious trouble with economy. Where were you in 1979-80 prices were much worse with no jobs. Stop going to the casino cut out netflix

Why a russian default doesn't matter anymore. They are never going back to the old days of needing western investments again.

Zelenskiy has said he is ready to consider committing to some form of “neutrality,” as demanded by Moscow, but only in exchange for firm security guarantees from Ukraine’s partners.
Russia will prob agree to that ...AFTER they finish taking 40% of ukraine - the important parts.

Well, we have the template - saudi arabia and the UAE will simply tell biden they cant pump more - sounds like a token 150K bbl increase a day - essentially meaningless.

This is an obvious lie since they've been holding production since covid to support the price...but it's good enough for biden.

Watch for a visit to SA. by russian foreign minister Lavrov after biden leaves.

you are right on south korea

wrong on japan. They have a big navy but not bigger than china

Japan holds the most plutonium in the world. They could have more Nukes than anyone. The US is holding them back



the most important service today is the Navy. The armies of today do not mean as much.

Did you see biden and nato promised a marshall plan to rebuild Ukraine. I guess it's good to be an optimist huh?

The down side it's deep state speak for countless billions of more graft and waste.

ukrane was never going to be in nato . Europe Uk and US going to give them more money . I think the US gave about 6.5 billion . The last count i seen . I don't know what the others gave.
Ukrane was a patsy to see what russia would bring to the table and get them to spend. China seen what happened to russia with sanctions. China wants no part of sanctions. They are too smart. They complain about tariffs. China will have to think another plan till the chip factories built in USA. Then they will do something with taiwan.
