Will Russia take over Kazakhstan ?


Hi,

The big question is what comes next considering this beautiful country: Kazakhstan.

Russia would have favorable advantage to take over Kazakhstan.

What do you think?

edit: * considerable advantage

Personally I can't say I care. If the EU or Africa or South America cares then they can send money and weapons.

Of course they will. Putin wants to reconstruct the Soviet Union.

You should back up these kind of (often repeated) claims with something credible - as it stands, this is clearly just your opinion. Only western media/governments are making such claims for obvious reasons. Most of this theorising and speculation followed the creating of the "Union State" with Belarus in 1999.

Putin does not appear to be a communist, nor is he affiliated with the communist party, so it's a big leap to go from that, plus the the situation in Ukraine, to conclude with a supposed strategy of rebuilding the USSR...

I don't see what Putin being or not being a communist has to do with the war as it certainly isn't necessary to start a war.

I doubt he will start or want a war with NATO for obvious reasons discussed by a British Admiral in the link below.

The "Union of Soviet Socialist Republics" was governed by the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. Putin is not attempting to rebuild that.

I agree with this, and plenty of people who watch international trends do also. Only Putin disagrees with what the pundits believe.

I would assume "reconstruct the Soviet Union" means expand Russia's borders until it holds the same geographic area as the USSR. Obviously he's not going to bring the Communists back into power. It's kind of silly that you would think anyone meant that.

As far as I understand, Kazakhstan is cooperating with Russia at the moment, so they have no reason to invade though. It's not like Kazakhstan could join the EU or something. Also, I doubt China would be happy having a war at their doorstep, and Russia cannot afford to make China unhappy. Moldova seems a more likely target (non-NATO, already has a breakaway Russia-aligned region with Russian troops in it), if they can get through Ukraine.

Exactly! Sorry if I didn't make myself quite clear.

I see... so a lot of western news media are spewing this propaganda, so therefore it must be true...

I found out at my own expense: the communists were way better than the rothchilds.
I for one, I hope Putin does bring back the URSS with the communists in power.

It is a shortcut for people who did not follow the political development since Putin came to power. There are more than one possible ways to explain anything that “Putin” does. But haveing nothing to say but a lot of fear to work on, people sometimes jump on anything credible as “truth” and sometimes less credible stuff, too.

It is, BTW, completely unimportant if Putin wants to restore anything and it should not occupy us as much as it does. Ideally, Putin should be doing what he wants, without bothering to kill anybody in the process. This appears to be out of the quesetion, for now.

Apart from that, I hear that “The War” is wanted by more than one side of a future conflict.

Put it all together and here is my own (conviction|obsession|belief|interpretation):

Truth Is Dead


enjoy.
