I think that Vladymir Putin fully supports some small or better big US invasion of Iran.

It is rumored that the Russians were really helpful in helping the USA to prepare for the invasion of Afghanistan

. Back then, there was big talk of strategic brotherhood in the global fight against terrorists.

In practice, the whole idea was for USA to get involved into the Afghan mess just like the USSR 20 years earlier.

Heck, you mean that with just 300m ppl (or 4% of global pop'n), the USA still has 16% of global GDP? And the mighty china only has same percentage despite having 5 times the pop'n? Oh my, what backwards lil buggers! And I hear that Russia is even worse? Has less GDP than Australia despite 3 times our population? LMAO. All your military spending has not got you very far has it? 5% of GDP? Australia alone could crush Russia if we wanted to. You think we are backwards but forget that it was Sir Mark Oliphant who is the father of the A-bomb? Australia contributed more to the defeat of both the Nazi's and the Japanese than any nation other than the USA. The father of one of my Physics lecturers was none other than Richard Butler, head of the UN weapons inspection team that helped us to depose Saddam Insane, the first major dictator that we decapitated. Then we got Gaddafi etc. Next up are Xitler and Putin. By the way, the hyper-cavitating torpedo was not a 1970's Russian invention. It was a 1990's invention based on my work as an undergraduate. My professor was foolish enough to show my work to his Russian Phd student. That is why I did not pursue a career in Physics. I also independently discovered the concept behind Einstein's general theory before learning about it. Am also the world leading market economist. Professor Keen owes his fame to my discovery but will never admit it. Anyway, the point is, you are a one-dimensional freak that is hell-bent on creating WW3 and I am the jack of all trades that will make sure you lose it. I have made up my mind now. I would have preferred to bring Russia inside the tent and kept them out of WW3 but have decided that it will be cheaper and easier to crush you at the same time we crush the Chinese. You have had 20 years to change your ways and now you have approximately 2 years to prepare for the consequences of failing to do so.

Russia may have less GDP according to established Western rules of accounting, but a much larger economy for real. It is a very simple case, really, Australian income has an even higher reliance on fossil fuel and a mineral extraction than the Russian one. Unlike Russia, you do nothing else. Lambskins  instead of space rockets and nuclear reactors. You get extra brownie points for being one of the brownnoser kids, and Russia gets demerits for being a brat.

As I explained to you already, you wouldn't be able to fight even a single strategic bomber of ours. On land, 10% of your forces are set up to knock out their own eyes before they get to any actual combat. On the accounts of being left-handers given a Steyr AUG as their service rifle. Pick somebody your own size. You biggest security problem is Indonesia and even they are going to be out of your league soon enough. Chinese already are. Way, way. You are freaking nuts to nominate yourself as the main decoy for the Yanks, who just want your gold. Should you really become a priority for Chinese, they will not be abe to bail you out. The logistics arm is much in favor of the Chinks around your parts. I recommend converting to shinto and preying to the spirits of the dead Japanese Nazis. They are your main cover. No way Koreans or Indians are fighting the Chinese on your behalf. The Koreans WILL turn on the Japanese at the first opportunity. Similarly, the NATO's southern flank is entirely bare due to having both the Turks and the Greeks on board. The incentive for Greeks to take the Turks out at the first opportunity is way too large. Only the residual afterglow of the British Empire, which they have been conditioned to respect, have prevented that from c during the Turkish Cyprus invasion. As in, they only played radio games, resulting in Turkish air force taking out two of their own destroyers. Everybody's favorite decoy. The score for Turkey trying to fight Russia on behalf of the Western powers is 15:2, with both instances where the Turkey officially won also ending with them losing all their men and all their stuff. For example, the Crimean War. Some have no ability to learn from the mistakes of their own past, yet the best can learn from the mistakes of the others. Be with the second crowd. You have not had the pleasure of encountering the Russians in combat. I advice you don't even try. The traditional Western activity of the last few hundred years involves trying to work out a scheme how they all simultaneously jump the Russians together and always ends up with them throwing each other under the bus.

Look at it this way. GDP is about making stuff. In your case, about selling minerals and lambskins to buy stuff somebody else made. War is about breaking stuff. Breaking stuff is a lot easier than making or buying it. Easier than selling lambskins, even. Russians GDP may be low, but we are really really good at breaking stuff. Somebody trying to break something has a significant leverage on somebody who is trying to fix. Say, I am trying to set your house on fire and you are trying to prevent this. Who is going to win? Both of us are unarmed and we both live in the outback with no police or fire department around? My favorite Australian, Ned Kelly, built a makeshift armor out of shovel and took out the local sheriff. My favorite American, Marvin Heemeyer, build the killdozer and took on a whole precinct. I am just some Russian engineer who went to college in US and know all your best tools. I desroy countries and continents alone. You have not seen it yet. All your dozers and lawnmover will be my soldiers. There will be burning napalm coming out of your showers instead of water. Your armor will rust away and turn into dust within days. The richer and more urban the combat environment, the richer in energy and information, the more powerful I get.

You are very confused. The European Nazis were defeated by USSR, with 11% share of materiel coming out of American lend lease. For which the Russians are grateful, but not too much. How many Australians fought the Nazis in Europe, two? I don't know any Sirs and don't feel like I am missing out on anything. Nobody home after 19th century. The fathers of the American nuke were who they tell you they are, like Mr. Oppenheimer. Except that they were really based in Berkeley, California. Los Alamos is one of the national labs alma mater managed.

https://www.atomicheritage.org/location/university-california-berkeley

The Feds had a bit of failing out with our physics guys on the account of comparing notes with the Russian colleagues. I still had the pleasure of meeting Glenn Seaborg at the Faculty Club and shake his hand. I said, "Thanks for the element, Glenn" He laughed in response. Didn't ask which one, which is what I expected to hear.

Who would have thought. You finished college? Where did you go. Didn't know they even had those down under, If you do, you are unlikely to have Russian PhD students in physics. There should be some Australian ones in Russia. If there are any in USA, a lot of their professors are Russian. Personally, haven't seen any Australian students at Berkeley, but there were a bunch of white South Africans, SA used to have an awesome up-and-coming nuclear engineering program. Australia? Not so much. I am pretty sure I know all the International students we had, because they all ended up in the same dorm

https://ihouse.berkeley.edu/

(which is not really a dorm, but a project of Rockefeller Foundation)

I much prefer the special relativity to general. It is a welcome addition to trig, but is unfinished. I once used it to discover a new fundamental physical constant. It is 6 x10^-17 parsec, which happens to be my own size. In terms of Australian units, about 1.85 meters. (verifiable by unit conversion built into Google)

There was no Richard Butler. A very common name, with most  famous of those being some kind of white supremacist. The actual guy in charge was called

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_Blix

and the UN agency in question happens to be IAEA, which is based in Vienna, Austria, where I live. My dad used to work for the guy. Blix (and the rest of IAEA) were actually vehemently opposed to planting any evidence on Saddam harboring secret nukes and none were found. US/UK and other Evil Imperials had to look elsewhere. This guy

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Kelly_(weapons_expert)

had to die for opposing planting biological warfare evidence. Take a look. It is forensically impossible for anybody to kill themselves this way. Bond, James Bond is as imbecile as ever, and never goes too far from his desk at Porton Down. So, Saddam was taken out on the evidence of some white powder Collin Powell showed to UNSC.  Chemical warfare it is, than. There is a whole corrupt organization setup for finding whatever evidence you need called OPCW which is actually not a part of UN if you read the small print and thus not subject to UNSC oversight.

You can find everything the "UN weapons inspectors" ever found in Iraq looking for the name of Peter Pavlicek, IAEA, on Youtube. Peter was the IAEA's works cameraman and there were no other camera teams allowed. The stuff is rather tedious, IMHO.

Some of my right wing red necks mention from time to time how oil will not go away. I have no clue who they are talking to. The only large cut in oil I see is in transportation. Transportation is approx 68% of oil consumption. A very rough guess says 80% of that goes away to electric cars and other stuff. My god, the air looks cleaner already and grappa lives an extra 5 years unless he lives with unvaccinated idiots. He could drop at any time. Play this at his funeral.

https://youtu.be/3KxvwuZ7oEM

Increasing mining for lithium batteries from start to finish at least 100 times more and transport these, building infrastructures with lots of metal casting which requires very heavy energy density while battery is not even fitted for heavy truck yet.  Mainstream is not good source of education to laugh at others. Everything has pros and cons otherwise we were all on EV ages ago. 

The higher the tech, the longer the supply chain and the more energy needed. Along with more energy for new maintaining system or backup. That is why EV needed subsidies badly and again, this is on the future tax and US or EU's public debt may get  default before can replace all of their fuel vehicles. 

This form the infinite  loop that make oil go nowhere.

And most of the dirty mining are operated by China as they don't need to worry about the environmental impact in poor countries so Western country can have cheaper product to sell more.  Take China out of the pictures and everything cost double and government will double their rate of debt for subsidies. World supply chains  is a complicated matter and it would take decades for changing slowly.

Except that Iran will kick American's ass on their own turf. The Yankees are well aware of this and will not attack under any circumstances. Even though that there are apparently some Israeli idiots who thinks it is a great idea to do so together.

The art of being a Great Power is sitting on all the chairs at once. Russia was set to benefit from the excellent Yankee adventures in Afghanistan regardless of who won :) It was obviously a pointless lynching mob from the get go.

Do you read articles on oilprice?

Which of the world's economies derives the greatest profits from the commodity boom?

I think yours  Russian

First after today failure  I really thought that Putin now should play aggressively

But Gods forbid please no - no attack on Ukraine.

No  Coal, no gas in ukraine inventories.  Ukraine is said to be burning with wood.

Gas stocks in Europe is now below 50%.

Wait patiently its really good direction.

And in China, they have run out of wood and are now burning corn cobs. So much for "the Power of Siberia"? That pipeline only supplies 0.5% of China's energy needs. Australian LNG, about 2%, Australian coal was about 5% but now they buy from Indonesia so Indonesia's former customers now buy from Australia. And they are enjoying the higher thermal content. Whilst China suffers with low thermal content. LMAO

Hell we even sent some CEO’s from Silicone Valley to offer help to set up your own type high tech center. Putin is interested in power, not his citizens. He’s a bum like Trump. 
My personal opinion is Putin withdraw all forces on the planet to Russia and the US removes all forces from Europe. I would like to see China do the same thing. Just think of the savings of no Navy’s and very few troops. Keep the air forces, drones and subs to make sure we can kill each other but end the waste of these idiots on outdated weapon systems. Everybody’s new job is to make intercontinental lasers and rail guns. The cool shyt. But mainly just trade and talk your citizens into having fewer kids and consuming less. You know, to save the planet. 

The "Silicon Valley of Russia" was already setup by Medvedev administration and is called Skolkovo. It is as useless as anything Medved ever did. Every successful politician is in for the power. Is this really news to you?

Russia and China only've got one foreign base each. (in Syria and Djibouti, respectively) US got what, a 1000 at last town? You may count the Russian Syrian base as two, because the navy and air force are in different towns. "Intercontinental lasers" don't do much damage till they get to the terawatt range, turning into a device called

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrolaser

USSR does have an experimental megawatt-class laser in space

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyus_(spacecraft)

This was presumably done to deliver on a checkpoint Reagan's "Space War" (SDI) initiative has promised, but never delivered. The best US did was much later, in form of

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_YAL-1

It is also a megawatt class laser, mounted on a 747. Since US does not know/want to use anything nuclear-powered to pump, they are at a disadvantage here. The thing apparently burned some 5000 lbs of fuel per shot. Soviets did have something similar 30 years ahead, called

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beriev_A-60

Still so-meh useful. The latest version is mounted on a very heavy vehicle

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peresvet_(laser_weapon)

has unknown power output, but is claimed to be sufficiently powerful to harass imaging satellites from the ground. Rail guns fire projectiles which are very difficult to steer and thus also to hit anything in particular.

In short, you've identified two very likely dead ends in cool future weapons tech :)

Russia is talking its citizens into having more kids. If you want to self-eradicate, you'll have to do it alone.We'll take good care of your stuff.

You can safely expect the Russians to make all the gas they currently sell to EU to become re-routable to China and other Asia, if EU continues its harassment of Gazprom.

If the Chinese start to frack for gas, they have the potential to cover all their gas needs from domestic wells

Kazakhstan is the number 1 exporter of raw Uranium (56%  natural uranium of the world). So  it is safe to assume that the Coup is just business between China and Russia compete for influence in that country and Russia soldiers are inside Kazakhstan at the moment

Your ignorance is astounding. I suppose that is the difference between a Physicist and a mere engineer. The more you speak, the more convinced I am of how easily we can defeat your war machine. I am not even going to bother correcting you on all of your factual errors, except to say that if you don't know who Mr Butler is, then you are either so blind that you cannot watch a TV screen, or you were in nappies in the lead up to the Gulf War. You clearly have no idea what a gas laser is capable of, let alone the complexity of actually pointing a pulse laser at a moving target from a moving platform. Richard Butler was a nuclear physicist, and was present on a US Navy warship during the bikini atoll test. Hence he became chief weapon inspector for the UN. His son specialised in Lasers, and developed a TW laser in the 60's as his Phd. You know nothing about Australian physics yet claim to be an expert on the subject, as well as every other subject under the Sun. Oppenheimer would not have known where to begin without Sir Mark Oliphant's breakthrough and pleading of the US govt to actually set up the Manhattan Project. Indeed, without him, and My Uncle Putley who developed radar, there is no way we could have defeated both the Nazi's and the Kamikazee's. Anyone would think that Russia invented radar, nuclear fission, and cracked the Enigma code according to your warped view of history. From what I gather, Russia would be part of Germany now if the West had not have saved your bacon. You ungrateful lil poofter. Just as bad as the Chinese, who also don't appreciate the fact that their new-found wealth is a creation of the West. I know you are jealous of us, because our women are happy to show us their tits at the beach, and you know that we are still more intelligent and advanced than you will ever be, but please aspire to be better than just being good at "breaking things"?

I am just some Russian engineer who went to college in US and know all your best tools. I desroy countries and continents alone. You have not seen it yet. All your dozers and lawnmover will be my soldiers. There will be burning napalm coming out of your showers instead of water. Your armor will rust away and turn into dust within days. The richer and more urban the combat environment, the richer in energy and information, the more powerful I get.

You are very confused. The European Nazis were defeated by USSR, with 11% share of materiel coming out of American lend lease. For which the Russians are grateful, but not too much. How many Australians fought the Nazis in Europe, two? I don't know any Sirs and don't feel like I am missing out on anything. Nobody home after 19th century. The fathers of the American nuke were who they tell you they are, like Mr. Oppenheimer. Except that they were really based in Berkeley, California. Los Alamos is one of the national labs alma mater managed.

The Feds had a bit of failing out with our physics guys on the account of comparing notes with the Russian colleagues. I still had the pleasure of meeting Glenn Seaborg at the Faculty Club and shake his hand. I said, "Thanks for the element, Glenn" He laughed in response. Didn't ask which one, which is what I expected to hear.

Who would have thought. You finished college? Where did you go. Didn't know they even had those down under, If you do, you are unlikely to have Russian PhD students in physics. There should be some Australian ones in Russia. If there are any in USA, a lot of their professors are Russian. Personally, haven't seen any Australian students at Berkeley, but there were a bunch of white South Africans, SA used to have an awesome up-and-coming nuclear engineering program. Australia? Not so much. I am pretty sure I know all the International students we had, because they all ended up in the same dorm

https://ihouse.berkeley.edu/

(which is not really a dorm, but a project of Rockefeller Foundation)

I much prefer the special relativity to general. It is a welcome addition to trig, but is unfinished. I once used it to discover a new fundamental physical constant. It is 6 x10^-17 parsec, which happens to be my own size. In terms of Australian units, about 1.85 meters. (verifiable by unit conversion built into Google)

There was no Richard Butler. A very common name, with most  famous of those being some kind of white supremacist. The actual guy in charge was called

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_Blix

and the UN agency in question happens to be IAEA, which is based in Vienna, Austria, where I live. My dad used to work for the guy. Blix (and the rest of IAEA) were actually vehemently opposed to planting any evidence on Saddam harboring secret nukes and none were found. US/UK and other Evil Imperials had to look elsewhere. This guy

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Kelly_(weapons_expert)

had to die for opposing planting biological warfare evidence. Take a look. It is forensically impossible for anybody to kill themselves this way. Bond, James Bond is as imbecile as ever, and never goes too far from his desk at Porton Down. So, Saddam was taken out on the evidence of some white powder Collin Powell showed to UNSC.  Chemical warfare it is, than. There is a whole corrupt organization setup for finding whatever evidence you need called OPCW which is actually not a part of UN if you read the small print and thus not subject to UNSC oversight.

You can find everything the "UN weapons inspectors" ever found in Iraq looking for the name of Peter Pavlicek, IAEA. He was the IAEA's internal cameraman and there were no other camera teams allowed. The stuff is rather tedious, IMHO.

You are an intellectual pipsqueek. And you have absolutely no influence on global events, even your President has little influence these days. He made a big mistake bringing half his Navy to my coastline during the Australian G20 meeting. Which was not long after he had shot down the Malaysia Airlines flight carrying many Australians. I warned him that I would torpedo his boats if they came any closer and I meant it. The USA has every weapon system available based here in Australia, and any Russian bomber pilot knows that she would never make it home. How do you propose to defend yourself from B2 bombers? You are either insane, ignorant, or both. But very entertaining.

Maybe this will help you:

You can't even do a basic search you twat. How about you search Ernest Putley and Sir Mark Oliphant? And by the way, a lot has changed since the 70's when my pilot father pointed out the missile silo's in Indonesia to the CIA. He also showed the Murcans where all the gold was in PNG and Irian Jaya, plus did the survey flying that found the gas off the West Australian coast for Chevron. My mother created the maps from the magnetometer data. And guess what you lil ponce, when the AUD was worth $1.10 US a few years back, I advised my govt to borrow $10bn of em and park them in the RBA. With the AUD now fetching just 70cents, I have made a profit for my govt of $4bn, less a few hundred mill in interest. But the idea was actually to make our banking system bullet proof, which I achieved. I am quite poor myself, but am the $50 trillion man that saved the global financial system during the GFC, although Ben Bernanke takes all the credit. I don't care. When I advised Bush to let Lehmann fail in order to create the correct political conditions for the bailout, it almost got me killed. After a couple weeks of frozen trade due to the lack of international letters of credit, I was warned it better fix itself within a month or I was toast. Indeed, the first thing Obama told me some 6 months later was that I better have balls bigger than the Indian Ocean if I wanted to give him advice. Later, I asked him for a big dog (you know, the mechanical type), and he provided. Unlike you, I am not boasting for the sake of it, merely warning you that I am far more likely to do the necessary breaking of your warped ambitions and those of your country. I make Machievelli seem like a saint and I have just forgiven Biden for stealing the election so watch out. Do you think it is a coincidence that I am Australian and my country has been the most successful in reducing deaths from covid. Hotel quarantine was my idea, not only did it save our banking system from near collapse due to hotel property impairments, it also saved 80,000 Australian lives. In other words, my young soldiers can thank me for saving their grandparents lives. Heck, I even suggested we increase the limit on contactless credit card payments from $100 to $200, which significantly reduced the length of our lockdowns and saved many jobs, as did my protecting of the banking system. What have you done for your country Andrei? Or any other? What are your contributions to world peace? When I crushed Saddam, I created the US fracking industry in the process. And also gave Russia the chance to take market share from OPEC. Where would Russia be now if it were not for me? And this is how you thank me? By threatening to "burn my house". And break everything you can? If you are not careful I might ask Mr V Putin to have you silenced because he owes me some favours.

Maybe. All I know is that if he is employed in psyops, then he is doing his country a great dis-service and having the opposite effect to that intended :)

PS: I think this article sums things up. Even the hard religious right like Ron know that inequality in the USA needs to be reduced and they need to find innovative ways to do it:

The F-35 has a large assortment of weapons. The missile I picked out for discussion peaked my imagination. Yes it can shoot from 40 miles away. In stealth mode it can carry 8 of these missiles. Each missile is capable of taking out a Russian tank which I believe is the most armored weapon they have. But range of the F-35 is 1,360/or so miles. Then you add the 40 mile. Several hundred of these planes available for Europe. Lol Enough nonsense, you called him a poofter? What is that. I’s that like a Texas cow chip?

And break everything you can? If you are not careful I might ask Mr V Putin to have you silenced because he owes me some favours.

Where do I claim to have an influence on global events? I do no such thing yet and you better not make me. You are the only one doing it a lot.

The Russian "bombers" fire Kh-101/Kh-102 missiles with over 5000 km standoff range. In that sense, they were ever bombers for the lack of a better word in English. Never carried any bombs. The B-2 ONLY carriers conventional gravity bombs on top of its targets. We intend to shoot it down before it gets into position just over the target, of course? Are you going to claim that it is stealth enough to get away with it? It is subsonic and cannot run away once detected. We have a propeller "bomber" called Tu-95 which is that fast. The Tu-160 bombers are faster than any plane you can send to intercept, so they can bomb a place like Australia with complete impunity. Technically, also the USA, which is what they built for. US has converted the last few operational B-1s and B-52s they've got to fire standoff weapons too in the spirit of Russian "bombers" did from the get go, but the B-2 is hopeless for that. In that spirit, the newer the US bomber hardware, the less useful it gets.

Russia's Sberbank is the 3rd largest contactless credit card processor, with some 11% of the market. There are two American companies, JP Morgan and FIS, who have slightly more each. Thanks for you contribution to the cause. There is no Australian company taking as much as a single percentage point in the space. I think the enduring competitive advantage of Australian customers, like your people the wombats, is fundamental inability to loose their wallets/pouches (originally intended to keep their miscarried fetuses and a single tit) because the wallets are attached. So, $200 limit, which is more than anywhere I heard, is appropriate. Hint - you can increase the security further by adding the biometric titprint.

The official position of the IAEA is that there were no secret nuclear weapons ever in development in Iraq. Case closed. There is no alternate/higher source of authority on nuclear safety issues and other things related to nukes anywhere inside the UN hierarchy. Any "UN weapons inspector" who claims otherwise has gone rogue. (There is a spinoff agency called CTBTO, also based in Vienna, which deals with detecting nuclear tests, but they don't have human inspector and use seismic sensors instead. The human inspectors are the IAEA Safeguards division)

What does Iraq have to do with US fracking industries? Correct me if I am wrong, but Iraq is in conventional oil extraction. Where most of the concession belong to Russian and/or Chinese companies by now, with Western share shrinking year by year. The US is not popular in Iraq and has been asked to leave by a unanimous vote of the local parliament, after commuting an act of state terrorism on Iraq soil, killing an Iranian government official on official diplomatic mission. In a middle of civilian airport and also taking a bunch of Iraqi own brass as "collateral damage" Yet, the US occupational forces are still there last I checked? So much for respect for rule of law and democratic governance. Lets see how long you can afford the continued occupation of Iraq now. My Russian sources inform that US had to remove the last remaining Phalanx CIWS from their Navy warships to protect one last quarter of Baghad where they keep their diplomatic stuff from opportunistic rocket and/or mortar attack. Hey, there is honesty among fellow terrorists.  As in being terrorists themselves, the Yankees have nobody to complain to about it now. Note that their ships have no protections against low tech treats at all anymore, offensive weapons only. Every Evil Empire seems to be destined to shoot itself in a foot by repeating all the misdeeds of the previous ones, and so will the US, aka the Nazis Jr., or the last best hope of the Western civilization to wisen up. It is destined to the scrapheap of history now.
