To Everyone Saying Russia Is "Isolated", Here's A Map

Tyler Durden's picture

While NATO is happy to provide Russia with geographical advice, we thought the following map of "the world" will help explain President Obama's increased use of the term "isolated" when it comes to Russia...

Obama is peeing his pants over the "Boomerang"

Color the BRICS nation green. I dare you.

....then circle the BRICS with red lines and have John Madden do the voice over explaining it all.

I am missing the point my man. Elaborate por favor?

It didn't "Pivot" or "Reset"

+1 BRICS of Gold...

YuShun's picture

In Chinese, BRIC is "gold-bars-four-countries" (jin-zhuan-si-guo).

@ YuShun, thanks for hinting on it, you're right, never realize that the Chinese put such high meaning on the BRICS organization.

I just checked the online dict for the Chinese word on "BRIC / BRICS Economic Bloc", it says "Jin Zhuan"; whereas "Jin" means "gold; metals in general; money" and "Zhuan" means "tile, brick"


so literally the BRICS is called out as GOLD BRICK in Chinese :-) so smart, so true!!

Color the British financial colonies green? Next everything blue, I presume?

The black must be ISIS. That Saudi king wasn't exaggerating.

I did, adding Mongolia (recent trade deal announces it has come home to Daddy), Venezuela, Iran, and I'm sure a bunch of other gaps could be filled in too, particularly in view of the influence China is building in Africa.  The fun thing will be to see how long it takes Europe to start going green.  Seems some German industrialists and senior/ex politicians want this.  Once the USD starts to wobble, it could happen pretty fast - like dominoes.  It is the inevitability is the future vs B-52s.

Also China and Vietnam just made up too ...

Why do you think he changed his suit color to taupe?

Actually it's more likely a Brooks Bros. summer khaki:  He fancies himself a preppy.

Wouldn't the cloven hooved sheep in the logo make it unclean for a muzzie like Barry to wear?

"Sheep chew the cud.  I think they're considered clean."

The way they eat garbage in Muslim countries, they are hardly clean.

only ATH for precious 500 or beloved 30 stocks on a weekly basis will bring Russia to their knees. That's all the US/EU central bankers can construct and control in the world.

Way out of her leauge....

I wouldnt fuck with Putin if I were you Jarret,,,,you fucking bitch!

disabledvet's picture

I would....AND I AMMMMMMMM!!!!!

(wouldn't phuck with Russia though. I respect Russia and the Russians...especially their Army way too much for that. As an American who is quite familiar with General Custer however I also understand the possibility of error. Custer was no pushover either. I think he and Putin share a lot in common actually. His glorious death pushed General Grant into some serious action...and changed the face of America forever.)

Putin F's back, with interest payable on demand.

You can add Germany, France and maybe the UK to Russia's partners soon too

smacker's picture

I can't see the UK Govt becoming a partner to Russia anytime soon. Cameron has burnt his bridges and Putin's got better taste.

When I lived in the UK way back in the 60's we were always chastised by our cousins for our bad "policies with your* Negros"; the cities up in flames during the summers of love, etc.  Then the UK announced that for some reason I have yet to remember because whatever reason it sounded ominous, that anybody who had a passport from a Commonwealth nation could come live and work in the UK.  Thereafter when chastised by the Brits, we'd warn them that they would be facing the Exact Same Social Strains as the US which they criticized so openly.  But oh no..... we didn't understand, it was different, we'ren't it, eh?.
Back then, most everybody in London was still English with some Scots, Irish and Welsh sprinkled here or there about and a few quaint Indian restaurants.  Big social conflict were the Mods and Rockers.  Oy!  Or the Chelsea and Spurs fans duking it out in some pub after a match.  And the Kray brothers.
Go figure

*note the language.... yes they were referred to as "your" Negros.  ....real nice.....

PacOps's picture

By the time I got to London - 72/73 the evening sport/social conflict seemed to have evolved into "Paki Pounding" - "their" Negros by then.

Rootin' for Putin's picture

By the time i got to high school in the UK  (81) the 2 Pakis in the whole school were completly untouchable (not just because of the smell)  They could do anything and never get in trouble for it.


logicalman's picture

1. You can't blame them for the system.

2. You may have smelled as bad to them as they did to you.

I guess you always fall for the divide and conquer techniques used against you.

I bet you have a favourite delusion, I mean religion, too.

Rootin' for Putin's picture

Nope, you should know that.  Im C of E, thats barely 1 step above no religion at all.

Dave's picture

I was there 76-79. Pakis were still their negros. Haven't been back since. I assume things haven't improved.

GeezerGeek's picture

The UK is having its own problems with Pakistanis and their preferred form of child abuse, er, I mean multiculturalism.

And by the time I went to grad school in London in the 80s, I knew some "Negro" guys from Brixton, who liked to hang out in the City of Westminster (London's fashionable West End).

Funny thing is, their appearance aside,  they were totally 'regular' guys:  No attitude, no chip on shoulder, no slave culture baggage.  Just regular guys to joke with and drink with.  I remember thinking how completely different they were from 95% of American "Blacks" I knew.  All other guys (from all over Europe and a few from the US) noticed the same thing.

OT:  The city of Chicago is changing all their German Shepard police dogs for coon hounds.  Seems they are not having trouble with Germans.  Yes, I know, but it's still funny for us old guys.

It's divide and conquer in the USA,  thanks to the puppet in chief.

The Krays.

If they'd gone into banking they would have been unbelievably successful - Their attitude to life would have been a perfect fit!

Lambretta and Vespa schooters vs Norton 750s, Triumph Bonnevilles and BSAs - memories are made of this!

Enoch Powell and Gerald Nabarro were right, and got pilloried for it.

Used to live with a woman whose ex was a Kray Bros. enforcer, she taught me Cockney,

along with a lot of other things.

There were a lot of other races there but they kept to their own patch,Poles,West Indians,

Turks,Greeks etc.Plus the visiting Aussies and Kiwis.,

Those were the days when Europeans with their homogeneous societies would lecture us about our 'negroes' (their usage, not mine).  I also pointed out that trouble was headed their way.

LOL.  Fuck them.

nmewn's picture

I always enjoy being lectured to by my inferiors as well.

It seems to give them comfort and me a good laugh ;-)
