Well, duh. The Russians started doing this when they were slaves of the Sultans and warlords of Central Asia. It's their thing. It's the thing they do.

Mind you, every country is full of propaganda-mongers and lawyers and Hollywood accountants. Every state does this, particularly to the bigger and more powerful and richer nations. It's older than Rome, Greece, Assyria, Babylon, Byzantium, and even Damuscus, Jericho and Aleppo. Places where I had ancestors thousand of years before the founding of Jerusalem.

You're a gormless idjit sucker if you think America is an exceptional target of kakistocrats and their spies, minions, lobbies and dirty tricksters. America has no friends, only frenemies and Canada. And I am not too sure about us. I wouldn't trust a Canadian as far as I could throw me, and I'm pretty hefty for my height.

Shenanigans. Email hadn't been invented yet when the Assyrians were kicking ass, taking names, and moving their capital around every other week to confound English knights.

Revolutions happen slowly, until they happen all at once.

In Russia right now, there are people chafing under Putin who are grumbling. A few of them are falling out of windows. More will grumble. More will fall out of windows. There will be an undercurrent of barely detectable restlessness.

And then, suddenly, all the pent-up energy of an entire country tired of living under a self-serving, autocratic regime will explode and before you know it, Vlad is buried shirtless in a shallow grave next to his hunting lodge.

Rinse, lather and repeat every 80 years or so.

Unfortunately there are (a) fibre trunks leaving .ru that don't run through friendly territory and (b) it's not *that* difficult to repair them.

It would indeed be a tragedy, though, if every civilized nation simply agreed to blackhole all packets originating from Russia. And anyone who refused was told that either they do so as well or join Russia in having their routing entries revoked.
 
2020-05-14 5:39:00 PM  
Remember when Russia supposedly had a bunch of unreleased Hillary emails, incriminating emails, and they were going to release them ... someday? And people voted for Trump because Russia was going to release those incriminating Hillary emails?

Whatever happened with that?

No. Putin used the underlying root cause to destabilize America:

Poorly educated people that became "economically anxious" from globalization...aka Trumpers.

Well, yes. There are more practical ways to accomplish giving Russia it's own private internet to trash away from the rest of us. Cutting cables as a matter of rhetorical flourish sounds much better though.

Keep telling yourself that 40% of America and 60% if white people are racist. You're helping to keep Trump in power.

And it didn't look at economic *decline* (people falling behind) as opposed to their income percentile.

If you used to be middle class and fell behind thanks to NAFTA and other bipartisan globalist events that decimated America...you'll find your correlation.

Hell, go ahead and do a Rust Belt correlation and you'll find Trumpers!

So show us the research to back up your claim, because the studies that found the racism angle also looked at things like economics and household income. They've been widely published and discussed. Yet you claim the exact opposite. So show us the facts. Show us where this non-racist economic anxiety exists.

Dancing around it and pretending they're not hasn't helped things. One. Farking. Bit.

Anyone who still, to this day, is supporting Trump and the GOP by necessity is either a racist shiatbag, or at best is just fine and dandy being on team racist shiatbag. Trump's persistent screaming the quiet parts out loud has become an excellent filter, allowing the garden to weed itself. I left the GOP after 20 years of being a card-carrying conservative Republican myself during the Obama years for the same reason. It was impossible to both be honest and yet not acknowledge the hideous racial animus the "conservative" movement was tacitly - and many times overtly - weaponizing against Obama. It thoroughly disgusted me, and opened me up to other sources of information besides the cult of "conservatism" ones.

And since then the GOP/conservatives have gone full pedal to the metal on all the nasty shiat that drove me out of the party years ago. If someone is still a Republican/Conservative today, May 14th 2020, after all this Trumpist bullshiat then by definition they are either a racist shiatbag, or don't think racist shiatbags are really all that bad. Period.

If that describes anyone and hurts their feelings, I'm not farking sorry at all. Quit that farking party. Quit that hideous stain of a political movement, and reclaim your goddamned humanity already. I did it, you can do it, and if you're a grownup you have no excuse not to know better by now and just farking do it. If someone hearing that so much wants to cling to that vile, poisonous, authoritarian, stupidity that they'll defensively be be mad at me instead, then fark them. Their hate only fuels my self-esteem.

They'd detect the launch and could target the warheads upon reentry. Instead, we should dust off some orbital kinetic bombardment plans. 2.25 tons of tungsten hitting the Kremlin, Duma, and Federation Council at Mach 10 would do the trick, and they wouldn't have any warning.

rant on

You will also find a hell of a lot of unrepentant racists.  I'm from the Rust Belt along with any number of other Farkers.  You have assholes up there that can go weeks or months without laying eyes on a POC in person, and it doesn't stop them from announcing to all and sundry that "those people" are responsible for the destruction of 'Murica as they know it.

Not vulture capitalism that tore through industrial sectors keeping those towns and cities alive for decades.

Not the gutting of educational systems. including scaling up STEM programs to develop new replacement industries and vocational/retraining programs to help displaced workers.

Not an agricultural sector that refused to change in the face of massive agribiz favoritism and a glut of their products.

Not the destruction of downtowns and Main Streets by big box stores led by WalMart and their locust migrations following the next community tax break.

Not a massive drug problem fueled by meth and opioid abuse.

Not the local politicos who's venial corruption and desire for another term in their shiatbox town turned a blind eye to all the aforementioned problems, and refused any attempts to broaden the tax base to mitigate some of the issues.

IT. IS. BECAUSE. OF. THOSE. PEOPLE.

It's because of the Asians, although many couldn't tell you the last time they ever talked to one face to face.  It's because of the Indians, all drunk on firewater and getting bennies and casino money on the Rez (no matter if there is a reservation within a hundred miles or not).  It's the blacks, who were redlined into segregated neighborhoods decades ago in the few places in the Rust Belt that are still doing anything economically.  It's the Hispanics, even if a good chunk of them were already citizens and much of the rest came to work for the same farmers that *still* haven't learned they either adapt or lose their land to a developer or ConAgra.  It's because of the Middle Easterners, shifty foreigners taking over small businesses as fronts for their next terrorist plot.

We can throw religion (or the lack thereof) and higher education on the pile as well.  You just can't tell by looking at someone.  Education is especially to be feared, because it can turn one of them into an "other" without notice; everyone knows you have to turn in your common sense to the Almighty when you accept that diploma - and you have been indoctrinated by commies for the last several years to do horrible things (things I tell you - vague dangerous things)!

The Rust Belt is full of xenophobic (mostly white) assholes using "economic anxiety" as cover.  I'm from an extended family full of it.  I lived half my life in the middle of it, and I hope like hell I never have to move back.  At least the NeoConfederate morons here in Florida don't bother with the pretense.
