    The reality is that the attack was inevitable and Russia moved their ships out of the way so that neither side would have such an 'accidental' event. I believe the Russian AA batteries also stood down. Putin may be crazy but he isn't stupid.

    ROFL ... may I can Quote you next time when an American Claims my English is too bad to understand ... as proof that it isn't? :roflol:

    O dear ... you have first of all basic knowledge to learn, because this part of your post shows, that you have no idea and blabber only the mental BS of others like a parrot! First, learn about the basics of things before attacking someone like me.

    But to show you the total idiocy of the article, let's take this part here:

    "The motive was Putin's who wanted to show that anyone betraying Mother Russia would pay for it sooner or later..."

    Skripal was a double agent in the Russian secret service, was unmasked, spent 10 years in a Russian prison and lives in England since 2010!
    Considering that he could have died at any time in the Russian prison "by accident" and no one would have cared ... the guy lives unmolested in England for 8 years and all of a sudden Putin has to show that no one is safe from him?

    Why? Because of Ukraine or Syria? Come on, do not be ridiculous ...!:deadhorse:

    Really ... the whole world was worried after the end of the USSR what happened to the vast arsenal of weapons of mass destruction and how safe the items are, or even the laboratories that researched and developed it, to the underpaid experts regarding bribes ,

    Especially the one you mentioned, Ivan Kiwelidi, is the PROOF that exactly THAT happened to Nowichok in 1995. It's been in the process files since 1995, and in 1995, Putin was still a tiny light around Yeltsin only!

    But clearly, the fact that it was demonstrably sold to the underworld in 1995 or before by a chemist - Leonid Rink - is concealed by the witch Theresa May, is ignored by the other idiots and so it can only be Putin and officially Russia ... and guys like you think you can use this nonsense without your brain or even inform yourself!

    How did Trump say something analogous in another matter?
    My red "buzzer" is bigger ... and that's what scares people. It can be so big as he wants, the buzzer on the other side is big enough to die as second!

    The Western Democratic republics do tend to be institutionally rather stupid. And they are rarely led by shrewd presidents like Trump.
    But then Trump is not a member of a Western ruling political class.

    No, I didn't say that. It would have been disaster to have Russians and Americans in direct conflict. The bombing was foregone and Putin understood that. He did all his public blustering and then recognized reality and acted accordingly. I doubt we have seen the end of it.

    The MSM filters most of them out of politics.

    Oh, it's really interesting! So that's yours, and probably those of many other Americans rating and view on issue?
    Because Putin, unlike Trump, used his brain and the world did not want to trigger World War III for a completely idiotic US attack ... is he now weak and has any realities of alleged US superiority?

    Really now? O dear ...

    Yep ...

    This was a very smart thing to do for Putin as the Russian "Navy" is so completely outmatched it should not even be in the same ocean. Just imagine what would happen if someone "Accidently" fired a shot.

    My Answer on it was:

    How did Trump say something analogous in another matter?

    Now clear, or still any questions?

    It was a lot like that when I first went to Canada in the late 1960s, even when we had race riots and were divided over the Vietnam War. Today, however, Canadians are happy to be Canadian even though they have lost none of their affection for Americans. They see us as having serious problems and they like the peace in their own country.

    They know a lot about us because they have almost complete access to our TV netwotks and news. I find it amusing they like us better than we like ourselves. We're like a feuding family next door where many family members dislike each other while they like everyone.

    All they have to do is put tariffs on Russian manufactured goods. They don't need Russia as a market for their manuactures.

    As for petroleum products ... they could get along without Russian supplies if Russia tried to blackmail them by cutting off all oil and natural gas.
    Indeed. The last think Putin wants to do is become an unreliable supplier.

    Not clear unless you are trying to say something like "Trump says he has a big button so the Russian Navy is awesome"....in which case it has nothing to do with the topic or the commentary you replied to. It may just be your English but it makes no sense.

    Hmmm, huh? Where exactly were the Russians "applauded" and the populace happy to see them? Besides Syria?
    Wait... the russkis don't care about "applause"...they just invite themselves in:)),lol.

    What was your meaning and intention about "Just imagine what would happen if someone "Accidently" fired a shot." ???
    Was it some sort of fear that a war with Russia = World War 3 breaks out?

    If yes, my answer depends on this fear, because obviously your President has no such fears and still told that he has the bigger red buzzer (if necessary). Now clear?

    Taxes, even for those renouncing their citizenship, is extremely complicated.


    Any U.S. citizen living abroad who has a foreign bank account must file an FBAR for each account along with their taxes, and some higher-up business executives snag their foreign employer in the IRS net by virtue of having American citizenship.

    As you would know, taxes are a true nightmare for Americans living abroad if they have more than minimal foreign investments.
