Relations between Putin's Russia and the United States

Civics, civilly. Post lifetime is 6 months.

Things seem to be escalating. I think this discussion deserves its own thread at this point.

So this isn't good...

Russia orders all officials to fly home any relatives living abroad, as tensions mount over the prospect of a global war

It doesn't. There are already too many political threads here IMO. Just ends up with you, Fredo and smith arguing with that dumbass troll.

Ga head though, uDOu.

It's within the politics section of the forums and the escalating tensions between Russia and the U.S./NATO are probably one of most significant political issues facing our world today. But it doesn't deserve it's own thread. OK. Got it!

By the way, I am not sure, but maybe there is a way for you to block a thread completely so you don't even have to see it? Maybe worth a looksy.

The Daily Mail is well known for being a fear mongering rag. I'm sure there are tensions, but I don't think we're quite on the brink yet.

Thanks for posting this. It was a good read. Had not even heard about the drills they had which involved 40 million until I read that Snopes entry.

Here is their entry covering that as well...

Rather than have a war the US/Russia issues will be resolved in the ring when undefeated former 168lbs champ Andre "Son of God" Ward takes on undefeated 175lbs champ Sergey "Krusher" Kovalev on November 19.

Look, we are all going to die anyway if Hillary gets elected. I just hope that she gets to drive a nuke up Putin's arse really deep before we are all vaporized.

Well played. :lol:

This is gonna be a helluva match-up in an otherwise very quiet year for boxing. Can't wait.

Luls. Always makes me chuckle when they talk about "Russian aggression".

Also saw on that same page that Steven Seagal is now a Russian citizen. Now that ain't no joke. He will deal with all 4,000 of those troops singlehandedly. Need to send more.
