Should the Republic of Belarus join Russia?

Posted by: PetersSmith

The Soviet-like flag actually is supposed to represent the state, not communism.

  • Yes; there is already a "Union State" between the two and both sides would benefit. Belarus has a much weaker economy than Russia, and the creation of a common currency would be beneficial. Citizenship and freedom of migration between the two countries could also be beneficial, as well as military cooperation.

  • No; they may already join the Eurasian Economic Union in 2015, which would keep Belarus sovereignty but also improve their economy; the independence of Belarus must be maintained. Taxation will also be an issue, as well as popular support. We also can't risk Russia becoming the superpower it once was, as one annexation may lead to many more.

  • The two countries are very close and I do not agree with your other answer because its just wrong bro not to mention offensive

  • History will repeat itself. The soviet union was dissolved some 20+ years ago. We already saw what the soviet union has done with power. A counter power, NATO and the EU will only make another cold war. They might get stupid, because this annexation of territory is like Hitlers anschluss. They will keep wanting more, and more. Except Germany won't be there to help them invade Poland.

I think the Allies, no the Soviet unknown where the aggressors in the Cold War. Soviet Union was made up as the " Big Bad Wolf " in the Red Scare.

The Soviet Union planted its missiles in response to the American missiles in Turkey.

Hey, and look what the USA did went it got power, SkewBo. Look it up. You never hear about it, of course, but the truth is our country has assassinated, overthrown, fought in battle, or attempted to assassinate/overthrow nearly every democratically elected president of a third-world country neutral or allied with the U.S.S.R. In the Cold War. The reason we haven't caught the flak the U.S.S.R. Or Nazi Germany did is because we're the victors over here. You know what they say.
