As I stated a couple days ago: There will be a lot of back-and-forth on this issue in coming days. It started, and Alex Christoforu and Alexander Mercouris discuss in no non-sense manner the meaning of the launch of the Power of Siberia. It is an excellent 35 minutes long discussion (listen to the very end) and it contributes greatly to an understanding of geopolitical dynamics.
Sadly, I cannot post here another interview, it is strictly in Russian with no subs, with a man whose change in strategic outlook in the last year or so is simply breathtaking from almost defeatism to now asserting Russia as a major power pole globally. I am talking about Captain 1st Rank (Ret.) Konstantin Sivkov, who was known in Russian internet as a man with grim views on Russia. Now he sings as a bird. That's a symptom, a positive one. But in The Duran's interview around 30th minute I finally heard from Mercouris the word which was waiting to be said--a synergy. This, plus, of course, pointing out that Obama and his cabal fvcked it up so badly with Russia that it will be viewed as one of the most catastrophic policies for the West in history. But then again, what do you expect from mediocrities with degrees in law. So, enjoy.
