The next time Dump makes an appearance and there are active duty or retired military present, they should all turn their backs to him and stand with their arms folded in defiance.

He's done nothing to earn anyone's respect, much less deserving it by virtue of his title.

Is anyone surprised at this?  After all he did to fark over our troops and allies in the middle east how is this at all unexpected?  He will happily sacrifice or surrender every life he has power over if it gets him praise from the dictators he looks up to.

Every time I fool my self into thinking maybe he has hit rock bottom he does something even more repugnant.

I'm tempted to print this out and tape or pin it to any Trump/Support the Troops yard signs I see in the neighborhood this year.

On my father's side, my great uncle died in Normandy during WW2, he was Cuban, 18 years old, spoke 5 languages and he volunteered to fight for the United States out of Havana. On my mother's side, my grandfather fought in Vietnam, my uncle fought in the gulf war, my cousin was a squid in a submarine over in the Pacific for a few years during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. My brother in law is a retired marine who did 2 tours as a machine gunner on a vehicle. The man who replaced him was KIA weeks after my BIL came home. He doesn't talk about it, but he's very proud of his service as are all of us. We don't ask about what he did or what he saw. Sometimes he tells us stories.

Millions of families in the US have servicemen and women in their family trees.

I cannot wrap my head around this, because it is so UNBELIEVABLE that the POTUS would sanction the killing of American soldiers by sitting on his hands. It's cowardly, unconscionable, and unforgivable. It's straight up treason, and yet people still support him. Is there ANYTHING these people won't forgive? He didn't have to shoot an American on 5th avenue. He let Russia do it for him instead.

But he didn't sit on his hands. In response, he fired the Director of National Intelligence, shut down counterintelligence operations, classified the report, and offered Russia membership in the G7.

Who do you think they are? NYPD after the president suggested maybe not killing quite so many unarmed black men

Listen, just because almost everything this POTUS does benefits Russia is no reason to think he's been compromised by the Russians since probably the 1980s.

So your narrative for the last three years has been "Putin is controlling Trump".  NOW your narrative is "Trump gave Putin permission to kill our troops"... and you people expect to be taken seriously?  WTF is wrong with you?!
 
2020-06-27 7:11:31 PM  
Remember when Republicans studiously ignored the time feckless Obammy pushed for Putin to be allowed back in the G7/8 after being briefed that Russia was paying bounties to those killing US service members?

I'm only going to say this because ive been around here long enough to know you're not this persona you're playing and most times, I enjoy your satirical portrayal of a MAGAt, but this is one subject where your particular schtick isn't needed, and it isn't wanted.

I appreciate you, but this is just a little beyond the pale.

Trump administration stopped releasing figures about Taliban attacks in April.

https://abcnews.go.com/International/​w​ireStory/watchdog-group-us-releasing-d​ata-taliban-attacks-70446489

Subtext: Not only was the administration silent about Russia, the silence was so Trump delivered on his "peace agreement" with the Taliban and looked good for his reelection campaign.

Sound familiar?

Well, seeing as how Putin controlling Trump goes, Trump giving him permission to kill American troops is not only plausible, but entirely likely.

So...yeah.

No one said Trump gave permission. They said he did nothing to stop it.
Putin controlling Trump, and Trump not responding to Russia have the same base reason.

Donnie* completely rebuilt the military in only 3 years! Who knew military R&D and procurement could suddenly start working so fast?!?!? And who knew the president controls the military budget?!!? No one, that's who.

I still have family serving in uniform overseas. I am completely numb with anger at the entirety of right wing America. Had Obama or Bill Clinton did 1/100th of the shiat that Republicans have allowed Trump to do, both Obama and Clinton would have been impeached and indicted on criminal charges. We all know this because Clinton was impeached over lying about getting head in the WH.

I don't give a fark if we have zombies roaming the streets in November, I will find a way to vote these motherfarkers out of office.

but remember, there is not difference between Republicans and Democrats. Hillary would be just as bad, so they is no point in voting...unless it is for Bernie or Warren or someone else who couldn't get enough votes to be on the ballot.

We all knew that he was under Putin's thumb after Helsinki.  Yet the GOP and Trumpers enabled him.  They all should wear this badge of shame.

Nice try, but no.  The narrative is that Putin does what he wants, and when he crosses any hypothetical lines in the sand, Trump shrugs.  The reason is because he is compromised at worst, and severely outmatched at best.

First you'll have to convince them that Hillary the unstoppable killing machine was the mastermind behind the whole operation.

2020-06-27 8:51:54 PM  
Someone in the comments where the generals are and why they let this happen, it got me wondering if the original leak for this story may have come from the military.
 
2020-06-27 8:53:14 PM  
first off, what a stupid tweet.. "he let them put a bounty on us"

second off, this isn't verified

if it is verified to be true, nuke russia. in the last few days there was a vote to allow putin to stay in power until 2036. russia and china are not our allies and they are going to be the existential crisis post "war on terror".

xi and putin can play the long game

There's a LOT of scummy things various administrations have done to the American people through the history of our nation, and specifically to the military too.

But this. THIS. This is so far beyond anything else I've ever heard of it's not even in the same league.

Putin is paying for militants to murder US troops and Trumps response is to hush it up, to send Russia aid desperately needed here to treat the pandemic here, and then go demand world powers let Russia join G7 while consulting with Putin on how to handle domestic issues.

Trump is going ALL OUT to reward Putin after finding he was financing direct killings of US troops in active service.

That's an act of war. Killing soldiers is an act of war. Financing killing soldiers is an act of war. Trump is rewarding and protecting someone who is committing acts of war against us.

Now we know why he's been tweeting baseless accusations of "Treason" all this time.

They fully support putin's slave trump in everything.

No word on breitbart yet. Something like this takes time to spin. I wonder how it will go? I don't see how they can ignore it completely.

The comments will be epic.
