    He's backed the wrong horse. Only China can create his dream of a multi polar world. While Russia may have the weapons it doesn't have the cash. Cash never becomes obsolete.

    Ah, the multipolar world. When one bullying, ethically challenged superpower just isn't enough.

    I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that Maduro supports bombing civilians in Syria and stealing Ukraine's sovereign territory. Is he also hoping for another cold war?

    Nah, he's just fishing for a handout. He already ran through the one China gave him.

    Heh, I doubt Russia can afford to give him a handout with all those wars they're fighting. And it's not like they need the oil either, they have plenty of their own. I guess he's afraid of losing another ally now Castro is dead and wants to keep the ones he still has, although if Trump has his way Maduro will have nothing to worry about on that score.

    Haha, but then there would be no one to buy his oil. Perhaps he's hoping Putin will bomb a few more Middle Eastern countries, then the price might go up.
