G7 Leaders Reject President Trump's Bid To Invite Russia

US President Donald Trump has previously supported Russia's return to the group

Foreign Policy: G-7 members reject Trump's bid to bring Russia in from the cold

No objections raised to president's suggestion that India, South Korea and Australia also be included.

President Donald Trump’s pitch to re-invite Russia to the G-7 got a swift thumbs-down from fellow world leaders on Monday.

The U.S. president, who is hosting the next gathering of leaders from major industrial nations, suggested Saturday the group ought to expand to include Russia, India, Australia and South Korea. The current members include Japan, Germany, United Kingdom, France, Italy and Canada. “I don’t feel that as a G-7 it properly represents what’s going on in the world,” Trump said.

The G-7 nations agreed to suspend Russia's membership in what was then the G-8 after Moscow annexed the Crimean peninsula in Ukraine in 2014. Readmission would require unanimous support among members of the current group.

Russia is run by an oligarchy.

The US and Europe have competing oligarchies. If you believe James Burnham, this is so. The Democrat Part Oligarch is through competing for power. They are willing to imprison anyone, tell any lie flood the country with immigrants and worse. Is the Russian oligarchy worse than the American one?

I do not like the Russian thugs in their oligarchy. Bunch of thieves. That said, Russia is a good counterweight to China. You got to pick you battles.

So Britain is still upset about the Skripal nerve gas poisoning? They should be. They would get father faster IMO, if they assassinated a Russian in return. Of course Russia would retaliate. But they might not, if they knew it would be tit for tat, forever. Find out. Do it. If the Russians cease, they respect (not admire you) you some. Then invite them to the G7.

Giving the Russian the cold shoulder has not worked. After killing Skripal they did it again in Germany and Mama (Wir Schaffen das wunderkind) scolded Putin , but is still sucking on the Russian tit.

The cold shoulder has not worked The Russian are still making money so they are not hurt. But they did gain something valuable, who wants to defect? They are 2 for 2 in killing defectors and the Euro-Trash did shit about it.

So kill 2 Russian spies, invite the Russians into the G7. We tried the pussy foot way.

Oh, you can't kill 2 Russians and then relent. the Russian have to know that you are willing to kill more and when they look into your eyes, they have to see a crazy person.

"This is a mistake." I agree. Whether the "west" likes it or not Russia is one of the world's most important countries and Crimea is Russian. No amount of sand pounding or self righteous preening is going to change any of this. Trump is the only "western" leader who appears to have much sense right now. Unfortunately it may not be enough.

As to when the G7 invites Russia, I don't think it will be when Putin leaves. I would expect the next leader to be even more "hard line" than he is. As to when it happens is when "western" leaders are overtaken by events. Essentially there are a number of areas that need to be addressed and solved that simply can't be done without cooperation with Russia. At some point we would expect the common sense and the need to solve real problems will override ideology.
