#1 Many in the US Expert community spent 4 years blaming Russia for something it didn't do. I can understand Russia hating the US expert community but the reverse seems insane.

#3 I'm inclined to think not many Americans love their 'expert' community either. In some countries, the moment experts form a community, it's time to disappear 'em all and appoint new experts.

#4 I have had several contacts with Russians and so far I have found them to be so much like ourselves. I find the Chinese far more war oriented. The closer you get to Finland the Russians look like Americans. When Trump was in office I saw a great opportunity for mutual cooperation but not so with the Chinese. The media and Democrats fought Trump at every opportunity. Space program could have increased greatly but now Russia and China are shooting to the stars at our expense. Now with the Ukraine Putin has no respect for Biden. It is his time to act freely. Always working to restore former glory and pride.

#5 I was standing in the ATM line (University town) and heard two postgrads talking about their mutual acquaintance's Bad Luck: "He had spent a college degree and Masters in International Politics, focused on Kremlinology, and the blasted Russians had overthrown Communism! There went his cushy government job!!"

How many Leftists can't forgive the Russians for betraying Communism are employed as 'Experts'?

Not all, but all the "experts".

#7 Yeah yeah, Russians blindly follow orders just the same and may look the same as Americans but don't smell the same.

#8 magpie, actually that explains a lot as many seem to have a vested interest in keeping the Russia on the enemies list.

#9 Russia has four killer satellites that can shut destroy GPS satellites essential for civilian and military navigation on a massive scale. Russia can do what it wants to as far as invading Ukraine and the world will not do a thing about it and Putin knows it.

#11  Ebbomoger Speaking for Boskone4589, Back in the 90s I worked for a mapping company that depended on GPS to align our maps with the road network.

Then everyone had a smart phone and had a map app in their pocket, and you know what Apple did? Instead of aligning maps to aerial photos they tracked the movement of the phones to get far superior road maps that doesn't require GPS.

Taking out GPS might effect planes and ships and war in the wilds but it really won't make much difference to the civilian transportation network.
