I thought from all the happy talk here that Russia was a friend who are kindly pumping gas to keep everyone warm.
My opinion is that Russia will just annex the EU because what was being set up was a mirror image of the old Soviet Union. The bully tactics seen over the last few days have awakened more. While reading my book on Mao today it made reference to how the Chinese Constitution guaranteed, this, that and the other as well. The reality is about to be seen now
