Putin setting his sights on Estonia?
#1
GENEVA (Reuters) - Russia signaled concern on Wednesday at Estonia's treatment of its large ethnic Russian minority, comparing language policy in the Baltic state with what it said was a call in Ukraine to prevent the use of Russian.

Russia has defended its annexation of Ukraine's Crimea peninsula by arguing it has the right to protect Russian-speakers outside its borders, so the reference to linguistic tensions in another former Soviet republic comes at a highly sensitive moment.

Doesn't surprise me in the least. He is taking pages from the playbook used by Hitler in the 30s and the USSR in the 50s and 60s. Send in special forces to foment problems, make noises about worrying about ethnic _______ (fill in the blank), then move in with troops to ensure the safety of those people and finally put a puppet government in place. This is what just happened in Ukraine, specifically Crimea, it is what happened in Belarus, Georgia, and it will happen in many former Soviet block countries. He is trying to resurrect the USSR in a "friendlier" vein. Then again what do you expect from a former KGB colonel?

Yeah, "Putin, stop or I'll call mommy!" lol Big Grin

Seriously though, I anticipate him making moves into the rest of Georgia, remember it was only two or three provinces in 2008, Moldova, Kazakhstan and finally he will end the rule of his puppeteer in Belarus. Kind of scary and most if not all of those countries do not have any treaties with outside nations that stand a serious chance of being able to help them.

Estonia will be a bit of a problem because of their relationship with NATO or he could decide to try to annex it just to prove that the west has no balls. After that Latvia and Lithuania will be in deep shit even though all of those countries are NATO allies.

Seems like nobody has the balls to tell putin no. Many European country's get the oil from Russia.

And if he gets his hands on Kazakhstan he'll have even more power because he'll have more oil. Crimea gives him extra ports for shipping, you can see where he's going if you care to look.

I almost forgot that Crimea also has oil and gas. It looks like he may be going for complete control of the petroleum industry in the region. Russian, Kazak and Crimean oil and gas fields and Russian and Crimean ports and processing facilities. Can you say starve western Europe out since the big O has put the kaybosh on new exploration in the US?

I did actually predict Putin's move a few years back on the other site before Resident Obama got re-elected.

Estonia Lithuania have nothing of real value. The labor force itself has issues. Thats why they aren't apart of russia today. Russia isn't making any monetary gains by annexing it. Actually, id guess they would be taking on a cost center. I think Russia had legitimate interest in Crimea. I believe their actions were justifiable after a clear revolution in the Ukraine

We will find in the none to distant future that the "clear revolution" was manufactured by Russian military or espionage personnel. It is the exact methodology that was used by Hitler to justify the invasion of Poland and it is the exact methodology used by the USSR for it's expansion into many of the countries that ended up behind the iron curtain. People need to study world history, not just American history, to understand what we see happening today. It is inter-related.
