  • Тогдашний не оскорбляйте России. Проблема заключается в том и Путиным и олигархической Думы. Не России или ее народа. В случае ты не заметили протестов.

  • Разве не обидеть Россию, вы неправильно поняли "обобщение", который даже не упоминает Россию, по очевидным причинам. Это опасное время для критики для всех нас, я понимаю, именно то, что вы сказали, нет неуважения было задумано.

  • "...a move economists estimate will add 3% to its economy in the medium-term and 11% in the long-term, in addition to enriching Vladimir Putin and the other assorted thugs who run the country by several billion dollars."

  • It would be nice if the WTO actually enforced its agreements. Trade is hardly free anywhere with Asia having massive barriers to entry. Likewise, all governments including the US meddle too much in the private sector giving anti-competitive benefits to certain sectors of industry. In the US its defense, aerospace, agriculture, autos (GM), banking, and oil. In Asia its memory, manufacturing, mining, solar, and computers. In Europe its aerospace, banking, and domestic consumer staples. This is just the tip of the iceberg.
