What I expected was the government to dissuade the Russians from doing so in some manner, though I should have known better with THIS government.

1) Trump still wants Russia added to G8

2) Trump invited the taliban to camp David and even tried to negotiate a peace deal that would have released 5000 Taliban prisoners.

Trump is getting played for a sucker by both sides, but that's totally okay.

That was the last President.  This President retconned the relationship between our countries.

Run toward the crisis, Cornyn. It's your only hope.

Bootleg: What I expected was the government to dissuade the Russians from doing so in some manner, though I should have known better with THIS government.


Our compliance with the bounties, or at the very least tacit acknowledgement of their existence without any retaliatory actions speaks volumes. 
Of course Russia is doing this shiat and always has been, but WE WEREN'T COOPERATING WITH THEM BEFORE.
 
2020-06-29 6:04:47 PM  
So they're now aware of the issue, and they're going to do nothing.  Except maybe lift the sanctions on Putin and invite him back to the G7.

Nice.

What's next for Russia? Returning Alaska to the Motherland?
 
2020-06-29 6:18:43 PM  
After the Russians invaded Afghanistan we armed the mujahideen and warlords to fight the Russians.  We didn't offer cash bounties but we did arm them and they killed thousands of Russian troops.  Maybe this is payback and something that could have been foreseen the longer we stayed in Afghanistan.

We all know if it had been President Obama having done this and not Moron Trump, the entire GOP would have a cow a minute.  Cornyn is the worst kind of phony.

Of course the Russians want to kill Americans and of course they want to use Putin's poodle in the process.  It makes Putin laugh to know America is stupid enough to elect a moron.

Ambivalence: 1) Trump still wants Russia added to G8


Yep. That's one reason he wanted to host the in-person G7, so he could have the foreign policy "success" of getting Russia back in and making it the "Trump" G8.
 
2020-06-29 8:10:49 PM  
The surprise is in how it was handled, or would be if the president wasn't a f*cking Russian stooge.
 
2020-06-29 8:24:30 PM  
Thank you, Russia... for killing some of our American soldiers.

(After Nately is killed because Milo mad a deal with the enemy to bomb his own base for money):

1st Lt. Milo Minderbinder: Nately died a wealthy man, Yossarian. He had over sixty shares in the syndicate.
Yossarian: What difference does that make? He's dead.
1st Lt. Milo Minderbinder: Then his family will get it.
Yossarian: He didn't have time to have a family.
1st Lt. Milo Minderbinder: Then his parents will get it.
Yossarian: They don't need it, they're rich.
1st Lt. Milo Minderbinder: Then they'll understand.

The main difference was that Gorbachev was not a Reagan stooge.

Other differences include the fact that Reagan was not paying Bin Laden a bounty for every Soviet soldier killed; and there was never a situation where Gorbachev was briefed on such a bounty and responded by trying to improve America's standing on the world stage at the USSR's expense.

Plenty of differences between then and now, none of which reflect favorably on Trump.
 
2020-06-29 9:15:14 PM  
This is how Trump/GOP BS always evolves - first deny altogether, then say wasn't told, then pretend it doesn't matter anyway.
 
2020-06-29 10:05:06 PM  
The bigger story is that either Trump wasn't told or he did nothing about it. Neither make Donny look terribly good.
 
2020-06-29 10:39:36 PM  
This is typical conservative tactics: Pretend to misunderstand the issue. Claim the issue isn't a big deal. Cornyn knows this.

Russia is our enemy. Of course they're trying to stir up the Taliban to keep killing our soldiers. The issue is Trump's relationship with Russia and that he puts them above our folks in uniform.

Associated Press just reported that the White House knew about the bounties since last year.

Well, it's not JUST Trump's relationship.

It's the entire GOP's.

I mean we're all going to die someday anyway. We're all mortal. Why you libfarts are making a big deal about putting out bounties to kill people who were eventually going to die anyway is typical alarmism from the Do Nothing Hoax Radical Left. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go suck the bone marrow out of a chipmunk I found dead in my back yard because it turns out a one-time payment $1,200 isn't enough to live off of. Thanks, Obama.

I mean the guy has meetings with Putin with no one but a translator where he won't say what they talked about and won't release any kind of transcript or notes. Don't worry about it. A bunch of Republican Senators go to Moscow all the time for who knows what. Big whoop.

He knew.

I think the rest of the G7 knew also when they said no to Russia being reinstated. I think Trump threatened retaliation if they told the world about it. This is the reason why he was so huffed up after the G7 told him they didn't want to come to his summit.

"How long do you think you can keep it hushed Donald?" they told him.

I even think Putin made sure the bounties were traceable. He wanted everyone to know he has a Reek.

I just want to know if the bribe money came out of the same Russian military budget account as the funds that went to the NRA.
