    Tell me Vladimir, should US business invest in Russia before or after you jail businessmen who are your political rivals, eliminate the democratic election of Russian governors, inhibit democratic elections in the Ukraine, perform military exercises with the Chinese, ship nuke fuel to Iranian Mullahs, sell missiles to the Syrians, or close down yet another media outlet? Well, I guess that would have to be after, since you have already done all those things.

    If Russia was interested in trade, perhaps they should have avoided sabotaging the Georgian pipelines?

    I'm so sorry that you are victim of American television. You really believe that Russia attacked Georgia in 2008?
    I want to know what Americans think about Putin. He is great leader, isn't it?

    Trade turnover between Russia and the U.S. is the lowest compared with other economically developed countries and is primarily Russia's desire not to tie their economies to the U.S., such as China fully dependent on the fluctuations of the dollar. If there is a fall in the dollar Russia will suffer less than other countries.

    Russia does not want your investments and do not want to depend on you.

    He sure is. In fact, I think we should throw him a parade like the one we threw for his puppet, Kadyrov, in 2004. :eusa_angel:

    Remember?

    That's nice of you that you ask. It's even more nice that you suggest the answer. However in my opinion Putin IS NOT a great leader. He's a sort of semi-democratic dictator with blood on his hands (Chechnya, Georgia, etc.).

    Russia is a kleptocracy with rampant corruption and little respect for the rule of law. I invest for a living and there is no way I'd sink a dime into Russia.
