Developing countries such as China and India are ready to take Russian oil at cheap prices.

The G7 can do little to influence Russia.

And the winter of 2022-2023 will be extremely difficult for some European and Nordic countries without Russian oil.

Zelensky wants to negotiate but G7 wants to wait for better position to negotiate terms.

LOL, what about the gas money that Germany is sending to Putin every month?

And as if China and India is going to all of a sudden agree to join in this oil price cap, they're even more than likely to continue buying cheap Russian oil.

Basically the G7 have ran out of options, they know it, and mostly because of the other two people who aren't G7 that's in the room (the EU). The EU will continue to buy Russian energy, it's just a fact of life.

Thew anti-west, pro-Russian war-hawks are pleased seeing warmongering Russia prevail, reinforcing the notion that war is beneficial for the ruling caste and business.

If they're so pro-sanction, then maybe Russia can help them and ban all fuel exports to Europe. After all, USA can offer much cheaper fuel, right?

Buy Saudi oil, they need some more money to finance their little war in Yemen.

As. Long. As. It. Takes.

Go back home, Russia.

It's not about Russia, it's about the influence of this G7..which in today's world is close to none.. China and India now have far more influence than G7 combined.

And yet, somehow the influence of the G7 has resulted in Russia unable to pay its debts...

…and there they all sit, gloriously unmasked.

Seem to remember a certain Bad Orange Man warning them of this several years ago, but they were too arrogant to listen.

Biden gave away another 200 billion dollars of USA money at this meeting, this time to support "global" infrastructure.

I see why they seem to like to have him around, he brings money and then his gaffes/unintelligible speeches make everyone else look like superstars by comparison.

Well the US debt is around 23 trillion, it will never get paid, debts in most cases are re-structured and as such are never paid.

And yet, he hasn't been laughed at by the entire UN to his face...

Heh, the US makes their payments. Russia is a bum without a job. Not really a comparison is it.

Watch what happens when Biden travels to Saudi

Should be interesting

And yet, he hasn't been laughed at by the entire UN to his face...

Yeah, and he was right.

Germany DID become dependent on Russian oil despite his warnings and look at them now.

Oh and they are laughing at Biden behind his back, after they cash the checks he keeps bringing to make people like him.

The bad news was that Saudi has no oil for Biden, but he can still come beg anyway if he likes.

I find that picture of all of them seated together very telling....

Contrast that with the guy in the Kremlin who is so scared, timid, and paranoid that he makes everyone sit at least 20 feet away from him....

Orally..

Can we trust a "Five year" commitment from a 2-year-left US president?

Can we trust a "Five year" commitment from a 2-year-left US president?

No. If there is anything the last few administrations have taught us, it's that promises by America are maximum 8 years in length, and that's only if you manage to get the commitment at the very beginning of their first term.

America is notoriously unreliable for keeping its commitments when they change presidents. Just ask Putin - he had America in his pocket 18 months ago.

You're clearly very intelligent. It's why all the intelligent people are saying the same thing as you right?

 ...right?

absolutely. Germany IS dependent on Russian oil and cant participate in the sanctions as a result.

they said so publicly. so every intelligent person heard what was said and understands that it means Trump was correct.

he had America in his pocket 18 months ago.

yet he didnt invade at that time.

super strange, isnt it?

Really? Trump told the UN 4 years ago that Germany can't participate in sanctions that started this year?

Wow, maybe Trump really was the deity you guys think he is.

I guess everyone just laughed at him because they lacked his future telling ability.

By the way, got a transcript of this prediction of the future you're saying he made?

Or did you not realize that he was speaking of something entirely differently when the UN laughed at him. All the world leaders. In public. Unrestrained.

By the way, Trump was talking about American domestic politics when the entirety of the world leaders openly laughed at the American president during a UN speech, for the first and only time in history.

You don't even see to know what you're talking about.

No, he was laughed at by the German delegation when he was talking (correctly) about the risk of Germans depending on Russian oil.

Oh dear, it appears you haven't seen the video of every leader of the world openly laughing at the American president. Educate yourself, son:

"This administration has accomplished almost more than any administration in the history of this country"

[Entire UN laughs]

[Trump expresses confusion]

Trump advised Germany not to become dependent on Russia oil. bad idea.

German delegation laughed at him. nothing wrong with us doing that!

Germany became dependent on Russian oil, even after being warned.

Germany is asked to sanction Russia.

They cant because they are.....dependent on Russian oil.

Trump is proven correct as to WHY Germany should not become dependent on Russian oil.

clear enough for you? I didnt use any big words.

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

why the world leaders were laughing at Trump

The German delegation to the UN did. they are far from "world leaders".

And they have been proven wrong and are being laughed at themselves now, as Trump was proven right.

AGAIN.
