[su_center_ad]MOSCOW – Russia has warned that it will revive its claim to a huge swathe of the Arctic in the hope that it can secure the rights to billions of tons of oil and gas. Moscow has long seen the seabed off its northern coastline as a mine of valuable hydrocarbons and is keen to fend…

      Obama doesn’t have the balls to stand up to Putin… He’ll just hand it over and go golfing…

        POTUS Obama, EU & UN sanctions plummeted Russia’s Ruble to record lows, imploded Russia’s economy into a depression losing -9% APR. Boom!

        Obama had taken 19 vacations totaling 125 days so far while in office; George W. Bush’s 65 combined trips to his Texas ranch and his parents’ home in Kennebunkport, Maine, which totaled 407 days at the same point in his presidency; Obama played 186 rounds of golf during his presidency through Aug. 12; Bush, 24, mainly because he stopped in 2003, since it sent the wrong message when troops were fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq, however, it didn’t stop his vacation time did it?; No. 1 on those lists is John F. Kennedy, despite his debilitating case of Addison’s disease; Dwight Eisenhower played almost 800 rounds during his eight-year presidency; Woodrow Wilson played nearly 1,200 rounds during his two terms. Wilson “played more rounds of golf than any president in history. what were you saying?

        And you don’t have the brains to get into a conversation with an adult so turn off your computer and ask mommy to tuck you into bed.

            Putin ruble fell to another NEW record low against the dollar and euro in early trading Wednesday despite a $2.5 billion intervention from the Russian central bank to prop up the currency. “The ruble has fallen about 20% since January.” As US & EU sanctions kicked GOP’s manly man in the balls.

            No, this is not a conversation. You have no facts, just a bunch of silly assumptions.

        That’s what we said about Bush as well.

        That’s what the opposition says about EVERY president.

        you Obama-haters do live in a fact-free fantasy land.

        you will recall that it was President Obama’s predecessor who looked into Putin’s eyes to see his soul.

        I have no idea what male reproductive organs have to do with anything. But the President will do what is best for this country, just as he has done for the past 6 years, despite what the professional liars in the right wing BS machine tell you.

    Maybe the north-pole and some of the surrounding areas should be given to the UN. Make it a permanent internationally owned piece of real-estate owned by everybody. If oil is going to be taken out of the ground there all the citizens of the world should get to profit from it, not just the few. It is after all, the citizens of the world that have to deal with the consequences of burning the hydrocarbons and the resulting pollution.

    • Nicholas Russell Harris November 1st, 2014 at 6:06 pm

      That is quite possibly one of the best ideas I have heard. ALL oil fields should be held by the UN and ALL nations. It might stop the damned oil wars. . .
