The Russians were told for decades during Soviet rule that the West was the enemy, and the Soviets still collapsed under sufficient economic pressure. Hopefully we can do the same here before it...

Wait, so is Putin wildly popular, or did he rig the elections to obtain office? Those seem to be contradictory claims (although they are being made by separate people). If he's wildly popular, then...

Yes, approval of him is running high at the moment. That will fade as things continue to get worse on the economic front. It's been repeated in history time and again: if you bring economic ruin on...

Especially since such a war would be at least as economically destabilizing as sanctions, if not more so. Yes, economic sanctions might be bad (emphasis on "might"), but war will definitely be bad...

When the alternative is military action against a nuclear power, I think sanctions are far saner. Plus, Putin has the power to end them at pretty much any point. All he needs to do is start...

If you think that US and Russian forces are going to directly clash in Ukraine, you're 1) paranoid and 2) delusional, that's what he's referring to. We simply will not do that - Obama doesn't want to...

The US has already increased sanctions as of earlier today (at least that's what the radio told me). As for this escalating into WW3, I think it's far more likely that Russia ends up as an economic...

Eh, depends on how active my kids end up being. If they're like I was as a kid, I'll be running all around town carting them from one form of practice to another all week long. :p

No, Final Fantasy 13 was the worst for this. Hour-long cut scenes (yes, more than one), and I'm not exaggerating. Putting all the cutscenes together is probably more time than it takes to actually...

I know my grandfather was either a member (or knew too much to be killed), but I don't have any current connections. Regardless, Purple's assessment seems like the most likely scenario.
