Russia’s really gonna do it.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on July 29th, 2007

In late June I posted the story of Russia’s claim to the mineral riches under the North Pole. It was titled, “Have you ever seen a polar bear’s jaw drop?”

Evidently, Russia is serious. Now there planning to plant an underwater flag under the North Pole ice to solidify their claim. Here’s a current article. More and more evidence points to the fact that we’re not done with Russia despite the fall of the old USSR. President Vladimir Putin is clearly leading a nationalistic effort that looks like trouble down the road.

Gorbachev, the former leader of the Soviet Union, has became a supporter of Putin’s assertive foreign policy and resistance to American power — calling occasional news conferences to praise Putin’s policies — but his criticism of the United States on Friday was especially harsh, calling us “Imperialists.” Where have we heard that word before?

“The Americans want so much to be the winners. The fact that they are sick with this illness, this winners’ complex, is the main reason why everything in the world is so confused and so complicated,” he told a packed news conference.

These two stories are just the tip of the iceberg. While the relationship between Russia and the U.S. appeared to be thawing, now it’s freezing up again into a glacier of opposite points of view.

For those who want a more complete picture of Putin’s influence go here. 

Putin’s even re-writing history and making Stalin look good.
