So now the elections in Russia are legit? LOL. It just gets better and better.
I agree with that but saber rattling like Kim Jong Un is not rational or good diplomacy.
My understanding is Nikki is next to go. I hope its true.
He wears a size 8?
You finally shared something mildly interesting
I always knew when our local Putinists would be forced to choose between Trump and Putin they would pick KGB Vlad. They are as self loathing as any Democrat. Ha ha.
The inventor put the formula is his book that you can buy in a bookstore. UK MI5 & MI6 can certainly make it. They tried to keep Trump from being elected, too.
And keep him they will, no matter what neo-con warmonger idiots like Haley want.
Why not. Our guys do it all the time - even in this country, even U.S. citizens.
Pompeo has called for Snowden’s killing. He didn’t specify the method.
LoL “vote” yes...in fake elections.
Russians are stuck with Putin. They sold out to him (and this includes members of the so called liberal opposition) — They sealed their commitment to a new Cold War when they jumped on the Crimea annexation bandwagon. Which is why of course...the elections will be held this Sunday. March 18th. The 4 year anniversary!
But boy are they paying a heavy price. Economically especially. And of course their freedoms: as the Kremlin has gotten ever more repressive.
With Trump in power, they Russians are in way over their heads to screw things up further geopolitically.
If Trump wasn’t in office, things would be a lot worse. Especially in the Middle East. Israel would have been screwed with Assad and Iran ganging up on them.
There are several pro-West candidates. Grigory Yavlinsky who always runs and gets about 1.5% of the vote, and Kseniya Sobchak, who will get less than 1% of the vote. Vlaidmir Zhirinovksy will get more than 3 times their combined vote.
Now that its obvious the West is setting up Russia for a war on the flimsiest of pretenses and with great haste- they need a strong leader at the helm -.it probably boosted Putin to over 90%
His coolness makes the hysterical undiplomatic Theresa May look like an irate school principal
So we might say Britain and the US are meddling in the Russian election
The US openly interfered in the 1996 Russian presidential elections. It was even boasted about on the cover of Time magazine.
Of course I know many Putin fanboys who, if pressed, will more or less admit that Russias elections are not fair and the system is biased towards Putin. Usually they deflect by asking Who else is there? But you see- thats the problem. If Putin were ever a good leader, even during the years when things were on the up and up, he would have at least had the prescience to understand that hes not immortal and he should probably construct Russias state institutions so as to ensure stable, democratic succession long after his death, incapacitation, or retirement. In general, he would use his authority to build a system based on rule of law and some kind of values as opposed to a cult of personality surrounding himself. He barely toyed with the concept back in 2008 when he let Medvedev take the reins, but he was so paranoid and concerned with image that he decided to come back to the presidency early.
The ultimate result of this is that wherever you fall on the spectrum of Putin/anti-Putin, theres really no getting around the fact that sooner or later Russia is fucked, and theres really nobody to blame for that but Putin. Therefore I cant really understand why he still has Western admirers today. I do get the ones who just hate their own governments, have no experience with Russia, and just absorb a steady diet of bullshit from RT, Sputnik, and pro-Kremlin sites. But I dont get the people who work for outlets like that and continue to defend the man and his system. Even if we foolishly attributed all the positive things in the mid-2000s to Putin, all of that has either been negated or on the chopping block to be negated within the coming years. All I can think of is that the Western apologists do it for the money. Those who dont are complete idiots. There just is no other explanation.
I can't think of anything B. Obama did to promote Christianity in the U.S. However, I do recall him criticizing it.
All Putins ex- friends do here is beat themselves to death in Dupont Circle hotels
Because it is wrong? This is simple stuff. Countries cannot go kill people including innocent bystanders with chemicals whenever they feel like it is right. There are legitimate self-defense reasons to conduct drone strikes although those should be limited to situations where there is an imminent threat and it is too risky to do anything else. If Putin wants to conduct a drone strike on some ISIS target I would support that. I do not support Putin killing a spy and his daughter possibly along with other bystanders or police.
If you think the Russians didn’t do it, you are in denial. It’s a classic Russian operation.
McCain openly threatened “ Moscow spring” during their last election
Actually an interesting coincidence
The UK spy thriller show “ Strike Back” featured an episode on 31 Jan where an evil terrorist made novichok in an abandoned meth lab in Ukraine
