    Basically nothing that will work with Obama in power.

    Heres where you say it wont work despite the limp wristed tactics of our POTUS already failing.
    Vladolf Putler over played his hand, the Ruble declines to record lows weekly as the US dollar hits record highs with the US actually starting to be a net energy exporter once again.

    Thats true but as I understand it he's still quite popular in Russia. And then there's that state run media.

    It's a cult of personality, once these people hit the bread lines "dear leader putin" aint going to put food in their stomachs. An undiversified economy can not stand up to random fluctuations in prices.

    The Russian Federation is a gas station posing as a nation-state.

    Its going to take quite a bit more before they get to that point. But also they are used to that-many grew up in the USSR.

    Thats right. The Russians seem predisposed towards despotic regimes all the way back to Ivan the Terrible. This for them represents 'strong' leadership. Genuine democracy is something they seem happy to discard because they've never really had it ,and so don't really understand it. This seems to be part of their national psyche sadly

    They have long been like that, seeming backwards and course to well before the USSR. Theres also some national insecurity over seeming this way, compared to the west.

    Serious question-what conflict do you not want to surrender to?

    I wonder if popularity and media can help with Russian hungry stomach?
