US vs Russia
« on: March 18, 2021, 05:21:33 PM »
Is it just me or is Putin summoning his Ambassador for consultations and then begging Biden for a (zoom) meeting a total capitulation on his part?

In Israel the media is discussing a Zoom meeting, but when looking into it further it appears Putin is calling for a public zoom debate. Still seems desperate if not as conciliatory.

Russian President Putin has reacted to President Biden calling him a "killer" by challenging Biden to take part in a conversation with him broadcast live online.

“I’ve just thought of this now,” Putin told a Russian state television reporter. “I want to propose to President Biden to continue our discussion, but on the condition that we do it basically live, as it’s called. Without any delays and directly in an open, direct discussion. It seems to me that would be interesting for the people of Russia and for the people of the United States.”

Nope, he’s trying to make Biden look like a fool. He knew that Biden would never do a face to face, his handlers would never let.
Putin also wished him “good health”
Biden is trying to be Mr tough guy and he has no clue what he got himself into.
 It would be funny if it wasn’t sad

Yup, basically Putin is calling his bluff and upping the ante.

Not too difficult when dealing with a senile.

Lol, Biden boldly called Putin a killer, then said again that he doesn't regret it. There is nothing remotely senile or bluff about it, he knows exactly what he's doing. Putin is nervous and fidgeting. He called his Ambassador back and is trying to shift the pressure back to Biden, but it won't work.

I actually don’t mind if he’s tough on Russia, but I don’t think he’ll win.
I wouldn’t mind if he’s tough on Iran and China too.

Let’s see how it plays out. I’m all for a Biden who’s tough on foreign policy, but I’m not as hopeful.

The question is what's better, talking tough while giving Putin everything he wants (Biden's approach) or talking nice but being tough (Trump's approach).

There is nothing remotely senile or bluff about it, he knows exactly what he's doing.
Reminds me of a bunch of people betting on horses.

"Will he try to outmaneuver the one in front??"
"Oh, he's calculating his maximum speed against the distance separating them!!"
"He will try to use his velocity to throw off the center of gravity!"
"He seemed to be aiming for calculated approach, but to everyone's surprise, he didn't take the opportunity."

Guys, it's a horse. He runs, he eats, he sleeps.

Not saying Biden is a horse, but to imply profound genius in his choice of words when it's been years since he spoke a coherent paragraph without gaffing, it's a little more than I'm going to concede to right now.
