Russian and Italian machismo...

Error message

Vladimir Putin did his looong press conference today and he blamed Russia's monetary collapse on the EU and these United States, saying we're conspiring to chain the bear...

(meaning Russia):

They won't give up because they will always try to chain it. As soon as they chain it, they'll rip out its teeth and claws.

Maybe Russia could be called a bear back when it was the keeper of the Iron Curtain, but now? Maybe a hyena. Or better a badger.

Russia's economy is the size of Italy's, and vodka and abortion declawed it years ago.
