Has anyone noted that Putin keeps making bold statements about open conflict with the United States.
I question the fact that "He is not exactly stupid" even if he is a bit arrogant.
Does anyone have any insight or thoughts on why Putin would make open threats when it would not to be to his advantage to do so if he REALLY intended to attack us?
My "Logical" mind says he is making such statements just to intimidate our politicians and NOT to forewarn an actual invasion.
Well, in Russia they have a flat tax of 13%. May not be so bad after all, plus all of those hot Russian and Ukrainian women...
I think I would prefer the Russians...
Obama messaged him thru Medvedev that he’d “be more flexible after the election.” So now they are testing his flexibility...
Part of it is bluster for his Russian subjects....Russia is still a Second World economy with a male population either drunk or dying from alcoholism.
Part of it is also Putin knowing full well that Obama is a weak leader....with an even weaker GOP refusing to act like an opposition party. Putin knows he is not dealing with a Ronald Reagan

Well, I’m certainly not going to say that Putin and Obama are in cahoots. Not me. No way. Not in the good old USA.
Nobama is not a weak leader, he is the best mole commies ever had. He is going full speed converting to USSA.
My gut instinct agrees with you. Putin doesn't like obomas arrogance. I think he likes tweaking him. It's fun. We should all do it (because "The devil, the proud spirit, cannot endure to be mocked" ).
From what I’ve seen in the news, Putin has never struck me as stupid.
I actually have not derived any idea of what his core beliefs are, or his goals or intentions. Just that he is a savvy politician.
I think he can easily outmaneuver Obama, and that worries me as an American.
He seems to hold his cards pretty close to his vest, whereas Obamna’s are face-up on the table for any observer. Not a very effective poker strategy.
Does anyone have a guess at to what cards Putin is holding?
For instance, if he maintains Russia’s military and diplomatic strength, while the U.S.’s wanes under Obama, and if Putin were to forge an understanding with Israel, where would that leave us?
I often kicked around the idea of rewriting Red Dawn where the Russians come to help us. B-P B-)
All of them. Putin is ex-KGB. oboma is a little girl with a penis.
Putin is the best of Russia: vigorous, hard, manly and utterly diabolical. Obama is the worse of the US: emasculated, drugged, sexually compromised but also diabolical. O will become ever more obviously and willingly P’s b**ch. That is the only game Putin cares about.
I think we should offer Putin a trade. He can have DC and most of the Northeast, plus California, if he supplies the South, Plains, MidWest and Western Basin with MiGs, Hinds, training and supplies.
I think it’s a fair trade.
The thing with Putin is that he actually LOVES his country and acts in it’s self-interest. Is that always in our best interest? No, but it’s not something we can say about our current regime either.
Hmmm! Are you sure? If he does have one, does he have any balls? He is terminally arrogant, he feels his masters will protect him from anything. Ultimately, he serves the father-of-lies.
Well, at least we’ll still have traditional marriage.
The primary reason for any anti-US bluster is for Russians. He has more “low information” voters than even we do and they eat up this “super Russia” shite with a spoon.
Even with politcal turmoil between limp GOP and limp-wristed nobama, Pooty knows history and knows even in our weakest moments we ain’t someone to really mess with.
