Moscow, May 30, Interfax - The U.S. congressmen's delegation intends to meet in Moscow with Russian special forces' representatives and to discuss with them the terrorist attack in Boston as well as the threats Islamic extremism is posing.
Head of the U.S. congressmen's delegation Dana Rohrabacher said on Thursday at a meeting with members of the Federation Council's International Affairs Committee that the U.S. delegation had arrived in Moscow to discuss a very wide range of security cooperation. The U.S. officials will hold a separate meeting with Russian special forces' representatives and intend to discuss the events in Boston and what connection Russia and the U.S. had in this case, Rohrabacher said.
Rohrabacher said that Islamic terrorism, responsible for the deaths of U.S. citizens, was posing a real threat to the U.S., Russia and the entire world.
The U.S. and Russia have a wide area for cooperation in this sphere related to information exchange and coordinating efforts.
The situation in Syria was specifically discussed at the meeting. Rohrabacher said that he did not share the stance that a part of the U.S. establishment had on involving the U.S. in the internal conflict of Syria amid the threat of the situation's radicalization.
The US and Russia have many things in common.
We seem to have evolved extremely differently, but on one hand, there are a great many similarities between our two nations.
We should try to resolve some of the things which keep us apart.
Just saying. We send our industry to China, despite the fact that Americans cannot even immigrate there unless they are of the correct race.
We meanwhile, do nothing with Russia.
Sure I know Russia is poised to wipe us off the face of the earth, but we are also poised to wipe Russia off the map.
We need to work with Russia a bit.
That’s all I’m saying.
There may be such a thing as Islamic Extremism but Jihad in all its forms is not it. Jihad is part and parcel of Islam. It is basic to Islam.It’s in the Book!
I concur. We bend over backwards to help countries that want to murder us but have seemingly no time for potential Christian allies.
