Putin: Russia not ditching dollar, dollar moving away from Russia
Despite what you might hear on CNN, Russia's economy is doing great. The sanctions have made Russia stronger and the sanctions are strengthening ties between Russia and other countries to the exclusion of the USA. The USA cannot afford to be isolated economically and Putin makes a pretty good analogy to portray the reality of the situation.

I'm with you on that train of thought mrgreen. All the major economies are tied together. With that said economies can be used as a weapon and that is good and bad. I think like military weapons you better be careful how you use the economy as a weapon as it can come back to bite you in the ass.

Yep, Putin appears heartbroken over Trump cancelling their meeting. :roll2:
The more the USA tries to alienate Russia, the more we alienate ourselves.

Russian bomber touches down on America's doorstep
The USA has bases which more or less surround the country of Russia. It only seems reasonable that Russia would want to return the favor. Just sayin...
