It will fall...and so will the Russian economy.
Oh and your theory about Merkel is totally plausible, Gaff. I'm sure most 70 year old hags are ****ing anything that moves and she's been caught by the NSA in the bedroom.
I don't have a theory -- just questions.
Maybe you can explain why Merkel has rolled over for Obama.
