Russia Picks a Fight with the Entire World

Time magazine has a feature in this weeks issue that shows a map of the world where Russia is ringed by nations, painted blood-red, that it has aggressively attacked and alieated during the Putin years -- just like in the bad old days of the USSR, Russia is friendless and isolated because of its own crazed policies. Here is Time's verbal description

BELARUS In early '07, Russia shuts off crude oil supplies, alleging siphoning of oil meant for other nations

GEORGIA A serious geopolitical fight gets weird, with a Russian ban on Georgian wine and mineral water

JAPAN Fishermen and Russia's navy clash in a long conflict over control of Kurile Islands

UKRAINE A major gas standoff; unrest over Russia's Ukraine-based Crimea fleet

MOLDOVA Long fight over Moscow-backed breakaway territory Transdniestria

AZERBAIJAN Halts oil shipments to Russian Black Sea port after sharp gas-price hikes

CHINA Russian nationalists worry about Chinese migrants taking over borderlands
