Retaliation of Russia Could backfire

So Canada, now down to a service country wwhen it sold off to Asia it's MFG base, is towing the bankrupt US line once more. Like it needs to throw inter-trade down the drain and start muscle flexing other nations. We are barely grovelling as it is trying to keep people employed at McDo,Wendys and Loblaws.

But who are these people we are trying to strongarm.? Historically, the character of Russia doesn't seem to be well learned by western nations. The last wars prove these people can take the most extraordinary abuse and self sacrifice. We seem to assume Russia will act in a typical 'western' pattern, but it never has. Kennedy spent harrowing months finding that out during the missle crises. I wonder if Putin will make up for the lost sales by selling off that (missing) 5 tons of Cesium 137 powder to the highest bidder, and build up arms sales to oppressed nations. On a recent docu the cameraman was taken on a tour of Palestinian streets and was shown the horrid electrical problems the homes were having and the constant outages. He may start studies on a new nuc reactor for Palestine, after first arming them with the latest military hardware, not one for seeing all that work going down the drain by Israeli attacks. The arctic waters debate is another round of sweating we are sure to come up soon, as if our kids need it now. A naval collision sure to be a spark for a potential conflagration.

Meanwhile, we have uninformed and unlearned post baby boomer ministers with no diplomatic experience playing with fire:

"Industry Minister James Moore said the world needs to continue to "stand firm" against Russia, despite the escalation of sanctions".

I wonder when Moore will suggest long overdue sanctions against the US for it's incursion of the USS Vincennes into Iranian waters and shooting down an Iranian airliner with 200 aboard. Or do we add the double standards trait to Canadians as well.

Who was it that said that when you start doing crazy things to nations, you should make sure they're not crazier than you are.

Russia is also contemplating removing access to it's airspace for commercial flights to asia. Hello higher costs, longer flight times, large environmental footprint. And it's still not going to stop Russia from doing what Russia wants to do.

While it may seem that we have post baby boomer ministers we don't, their allegiances are alien to Canadian interests. Other nations own and controll them Canadians do not.

What caught my eye was the sign on that building, a sign I have yet to see in all of Canada. But I guess it couldn't be about all that Russian gold,diamonds and oil Moore forgot to tell us about. If Rolex goes to the trouble to mount a huge sign on a building, and is so confident in Russia that it can sell Rolex watches there, then just how bad off ARE they really. Looks like Moore didn't do any homework. Just more misinformation the war mongers would feed to us.

More likely there will be a lot of flights to Aisa and none to North America and very few to Europe. Russia has the natural resources and the military might to hold onto them so she only needs new customers, that would be Asia/India regions. Pretty soon Canada won't need to be flying anyplace because we would not be able to do the contracts at a price that is competitive and profitable. We also just lost a lot of trading partners to the south. Obama better become dictator so we can manufacturer golf-balls for him and his friends.

LOL Last years crop hasn't hit markets. How would we get it there when nothing is moving?

We can flood the markets and make Russian grain worthless.
