The British prime minister Theresa May is making some noise by expelling 23 Russian diplomats in retaliation for poisoning an ex-spy, but maybe she did not go far enough. There is compelling evidence that says Vladimir Putin had authorized this planned attack, however it seems that the whole world is afraid to poke the bear. Putin wants to maintain his power no matter what the consequences are, and along the way he would love to try to restore the old Soviet Union and reestablish Russia as being a great power. I am so sick of the Russians and despite overwhelming evidence, it seems that Trump is still not convinced that they were involved in any election meddling. He talks a good game, but to me it seems like he is afraid of the NRA and of Putin and I never trust a man that cheats in golf.
‘Poking the bear’ is an idiom for doing something that might provoke someone into becoming angry or causing problems and it is very apropos in this case, as the bear is a symbol for Russia, the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union and the present-day Russian Federation. I will probably provoke someone with this post and I am risking getting that Russian Trojan Worm Ransom virus again, but I needed to rant and I felt like making some noise and sometimes you just have to stir things up.
