No, the current leader in 2019 calendar sales at a popular chain store in Japan is not a fresh-faced young idol, nor is it a sexy heart-throb actor. Rather, Vladimir Putin, the 66-year-old President of Russia, takes the cake in that category. Thats right, the very same exercise buff that also has claim to a fragrance in his home country and a manga in Japan is currently contributing to an unprecedented number of calendar sales in a foreign country.

Not a total shock when you remember that many Russians appear to be asian or partly asian. Russia and China are close on the globe, separated by Mongolia.
Japan is very very strange.
I get a free one each year from my drugstore.
Each month has a different picture by Norman Rockwell. He was an amazing artist.
Ya. I thought that they were once enemies. They even fought against each other.
Russia and Japan are still at odds over some islands..................
They’ve just never been the same after Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and McArthur.
They developed a quiet, odd, aesthetic form of autism.
Pooty Poot is a hero to many internationally. He saved Eurasia from a Muslim refugee invasion initiated by Obama’s Arab Spring, by Annexing Crimea and drawing a line in Syria...no migrants to Russia or into former USSR Republics.
Instead the migrants were funneled into the soft underbelly of Europe to demographically invade Sweden, Germany, Italy, Spain , the USA and Canada and down into Africa. No demographic invasion of Russia or her immediate neighbors, including Georgia, by Muslims.
So there us reason to admire Pooty, even though he is a twisted politician, he IS highly effective. He beat Obama like a drum.
So they would have gone to Russia if Russia hadn't taken the Ukraine?
That makes zero sense.

That is where they were headed anyway.

Right. I'm sure they are all thanking Big Brother Vlad and inviting him in to take more of their territory.
I should have said “taken Crimea from the Ukraine”
In Japan, everything is like that.
Their fads are lightyears more meta than what we can create.

Erratum: [the Mongol empire west of 13th century Russian holdings]
Corrected: [the Mongol empire east of 13th century Russian holdings]
I recall Yeltzin and the tales of his drinking. His was not an easy job.
Funny thing is, as an old whitehaired man, Yeltzin looked more like his wife in that black & white photo, than the square jawed young man to her right.
Many Russians have “Tatar eyes”; almond shaped with blue pupils.
Age old question: are Russians a Western people?
I guess the Japanese have forgiven the Russians seizing the Kuril islands in 1945.

History is not taught in the schools in Japan, its too shame inducing you see. Its barely available in college.
Gee, that’s right, I forgot! To today’s Japanese, WWII began on August 6, 1945.
All that went on beforehand were a series of unfortunate misunderstandings about Japan’s “Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere” to unite all of Asia under the benevolent rule of their Emperor.
So they would have gone to Russia if Russia hadn’t taken the Ukraine?>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
That’s an entirely different issue involving an array of internal Ukrainian political issues. That was going on way before the millions of Muslim migrants resulting from Obama’s Arab Spring.
The Russian cauldron is very complex, and they have been fighting Muslim incursions for centuries.
No one is inviting Vlad the inhaler, but he is still doing what Russian leaders have dome for centuries, keeping out the Muslim hoards.
Keep this in mind as we watch future events in the Crimea and the Caspian Sea area.
