US Senator: Russia just fell off the chain, something needs to be done

78
In an interview with FOX News, which, after Donald Trump came to power, turns into the first news US channel, Russophobe senator Lindsay Graham once again stated that Washington needs to tighten its policy on Russia. Graham said the US should "give a tough rebuff to Putin."


From an interview with Mr. Graham:
The problem, in my opinion, is that Russia has definitely fallen off the chain. We do a lot, but it doesn't work. And in a strange way, the president is having difficulty openly repulsing Putin.


US Senator: Russia just fell off the chain, something needs to be done


As can be seen from this phrase, the US senator recognizes that, in principle, no American measures imposed on Russia are working. And we are talking about the real tsunami of sanctions, restrictions and attempts to exclude the Russian Federation from the expanses of the world market. And this tsunami, as representatives of the American government circles dreamed, was supposed to “wash away” Russia a couple of years ago. More precisely - Vladimir Putin.

And still it is necessary to ascertain that in the USA they are accustomed to consider Russia "sitting on a chain".

Lindsey Graham:
We need to act more actively. For example, deprive Russia of oil revenues. How? We will offer alternative sources of fuel.


Apparently, Graham does not know that over the past 12 years, the dependence of the Russian Federation on the sale of hydrocarbons abroad has almost halved. At the same time, year after year, Europe marks new and new records in the volume of purchases of oil and gas from Russia, which in turn speaks only about one thing: American “alternative sources” from Europeans are not in high esteem.

    Another two-faced anus, it accuses us of allegedly breaking the chain and immediately offers what else can annoy Russia. A hard rebuff must be given to mattresses for all their vile dirty tricks.

                Ha! lol As the saying goes, the US senator is bad who does not narcissistically dream of taking Trump's place as president of the United States!
                And, as we see, the “idiotic” Russophobe senator Lindsay Graham is just one of them! wassat

                Trump needs to try to remove angry Senator Lindsey Graham from his path, otherwise this throaty rival completely trumps Trump!
                stop And just do not need to say at the same time that Russia is again “to blame” for this!

            Here, one more liberal myth must be taken into account, about the lag of the economy, GDP, etc.

            GDP structure:

            USA. Industrial production - 15%, agriculture and fisheries - 1%, construction - 3%. Total real sector - 19%. The rest is trade and various kinds of services: from manicure to transport and financial.

            China. Industrial production - 40%, agriculture - 10%, construction - 7%. The share of the real sector is 57%. It turns out that the size of the real sector of China's economy is almost three times larger than the American one.

            Russia. Industrial production - 30,5%, agricultural and fishing - 4,2%, construction - 7,4%. Total - 42.1%

            So, let's count. US GDP is 4,8 times larger than ours, and the specific share of real production in Russia's GDP is 2,2 times higher than in US GDP. This means that real industrial production in the USA is 4.8 / 2.2 = 2.18 times larger than ours. And if we take into account the shadow sector, which in Russia is much larger than in the US, the gap will become even less noticeable.

            A similar calculation for China shows that the volume of the manufactured product there is 7,44 times higher than ours.

            In terms of per capita, we come to interesting and unexpected conclusions.
            The US population is 2,2 times larger than ours, and the Chinese population is 9,38 times larger. It means that the volume of real industrial production in Russia and the United States per capita is approximately the same.

            The claim of much more efficient production in the United States turns out to be a myth.

            Similarly, in terms of per capita, We produce 1,26 times more industrial product than in China.
            That's all, why sanctions do not apply, the economy is not torn to shreds laughing

              Very beautifully and correctly laid out. To this we can add that the calculation and comparison of GDP per dollar at its price of 57 rubles per dollar is a complete crap in itself. In my opinion, GDP should only be watched in kind. Then generally amazing things will open.

              At the household level: a family of 2 people sows less bread than a family of 10 people. But living at the same time can be more satisfying, collecting more from a hectare. And if the head of the family also has a machine gun, then they can not be afraid that they will be taken away the crop. smile

          They still have a saddle of the wrong caliber to put us on a chain. But, sadly, in the 90s we put ourselves on a chain, in dreams of a "paradise" of Western life. And not on Amer’s, but on his own. I didn’t like it - they took it off. The word "broke" is just a rash substitution of concepts.

        Great comment. I still think so. I must agree that in any country, its citizens are brainwashed. This is a function of the state, we have nothing to be ashamed of, it's like a vaccination. The only difference is that in Russia we are washed with brains of sacred water from a mountain lake of truth, and for our opponents, that in Russia and abroad, our brains were washed with liquid feces from a sedimentation tank.

    Can through the Foreign Ministry make an offer to this and other such senators and congressmen so that they, together with all their relatives, personally try to "put Russia on the chain"?

Apparently, for some, this is a deliberately chosen model of behavior, while someone is lulled to prevent panic. Although serious people probably stooped. They were shown that they could be quickly and unobtrusively destroyed by several different images, despite the trillions of dollars they had spent.

    To get off the chain, you must first put on it. Another thing, I don’t understand one thing, what are the Americans counting on with such speeches?
    It’s one thing to spread rot on Putin, officials, our oligarchs, another thing to spread rot on Russian citizens. Those. Before, people had enough sympathy for the USA (I myself like many things in this country, for example, states, as a separate unit in the state, with their own laws, etc., which gives competition between states within the country, this has a positive effect on the economy etc.), and now there are fewer and fewer of them.
    Those. instead of separating us and making us weak, they make us strong. And where is the logic then? :)
    You will attack us now, or take appropriate similar steps for this, as most of the citizens of Russia will defend it.
    No, to cherish us, hang noodles on our ears, and quietly quietly take our hands on everything, as they do in Europe. For making us an Enemy, they make us stronger. For the enemy, North Korea and Iran would be enough for their eyes.

    Americans in the "containment of Russia" are trying to adhere to the proven technology. It is already known since the collapse of the USSR, and then it worked. Now it is slipping and does not give a result. It is primitive and consists of three components:
    1) A sharp decline in oil prices.
    2) If possible, strong destabilization and collapse of the ruble.
    3) The buildup of the internal situation in the country under the slogans “it's time to get out of this country”, “Putin leave”, “bulk2018”, “Russia is all bad”. Well and so on, you know me better.
    Sometimes a fourth external factor is added for reliability. A small war or a sluggish conflict at the borders - Ukraine, South Ossetia. Here is such a simple mechanism for rocking the situation. Moreover, it is universal among Americans. It is not that it applies to Russia alone. It has also been applied to Venezuela, for example. True, they do not take into account one thing, that once the applied mechanism a second time may not work, since the means of stopping by the second side are also developed and applied.

      They do not understand that it was not they who destroyed the Soviet Union. They only helped this. It was ruined by the CPSU, who abandoned their ideology for the sake of the prospects of seizure. But oil prices helped this. And now the situation in the country is radically different.

    The problem, in my opinion, is that Russia has definitely broken the chain.
    It’s interesting, and when did they put us on a chain? Frozen .....

    Panic is in the ranks of the enemy. Or they thought that after the announcement of the sanctions, we would kneel and dance to their tune.

    Everything is like the classic of grandfather Krylov Fable Elephant and Pug read

    Through the streets of the Elephant they drove,
    Apparently, for show.
    It is known that Elephants are a wonder in our country,
    There were crowds of onlookers behind the Elephant.
    From nowhere, meet Moska them.
    Seeing the Elephant, well, to him to rush,
    And bark, and squeal, and tear;
    Well, he's getting into a fight with him.
    "Neighbor, stop shame,"
    She says to Shavka, "Do you fuss with the Elephant?"
    Look, you're wheezing, and he goes to himself.
    Forward
    And I do not notice your barking at all. -
    "Oh, eh!" - Moska answers, "
    That's what gives me the spirit,
    That I, absolutely without a fight,
    I can get into big bully.
    Let the dogs say:
    "Ay, pug! Know she is strong,
    What barks at the Elephant! "

    Russia has one, but a very powerful means of pressure on mattresses, if they completely cut off, and begin more serious actions against us in economic terms. . This is the cessation of fuel supplies for their nuclear power plants. Now Russia is a monopolist in this area, and it will be very difficult for mattresses. In this case, they punished us for huge grandmas, and so it’s probably worth at least a little return.
    That's just GDP and K * are unlikely to decide on this.
