Truly breathtaking. The Soviets spent the best part of 70 years trying to make inroads in the American left and got nowhere... Putin completely took over the American right in less than 10.

Can anyone imagine if the Soviets had stopped huffing their own propaganda long enough to realize that the American left would never join them, and instead Stalin or Brezhnev had begun a campaign of fostering totalitarianism on the right? *shudder*

And that leads us to a realization I had not long after Pelosi delivered that zinger memed above:

Trump and the GQP don't want fascism.

They want a Russian-style kleptocracy.  They just see fascist authoritarianism as the shortest route there.

The 70's? They spent the 50's, the 60's, 70's and some of the 80's trying to infiltrate not only the American left, but leftwing organizations all over the world. And just like you said, in less than 10 they were able to not only take over the American right, but most rightwing parties worldwide.

And it is so crazy. For decades rightwing parties in every government around the world have been screaming that the leftwing party in their country is unpatriotic, and still do to this day, when in fact it is them that rolled over to Russia in a heartbeat

It has been going on for a long time and didn't take hold until TFG** arrived on the scene. IIRC JFK warned Nixon about it. Johnson was also approached and told them to go to hell.

And, thanks in part to the public writings of a former Soviet intelligence officer, which the authors cite, it is believed that Russian operatives even attempted to contact Kennedy campaign officials during the 1960 election, only to be denied.

Russia's nuclear Arsenal is junk. It takes billions of dollars to maintain it, because it degrades fast. Russia now has the GDP of Less than Italy. All of their lakes are poisoned and toxic. They treated radiation like they were carrying it in a sieve. The average Russian peasant is starving and drunk. The military is in horrible shape, not to mention their roads, bridges and cars. The average russian lifespan has been falling.

Putin has bluster. He is not Stalin, he's more like baby doc Duvalier, a pure kleptocrat. Find his stash of billions of stolen money and confiscate it.

Obviously you're in the right place here at Fark.com. Indeed in long ago days of Fark he was dubbed "floor humping guy" after he unfortunately posed for a cringey sidebar ad on Newsmax stories Fark greenlit.

This also makes him VERY dangerous..Putin knows that this is the peak of Russia's ability to project
any power with feet on the ground..From here on out, their available population to serve in the military
will only get more small. The ONLY thing he can do, "for the betterment of Russia"  and of course,
his personal reputation in the history books, is to attempt to  maximize their available space and absorb as
many people as possible to bolster their position. Russia is HUGE..And yet,even if they swallow up Ukraine,
will have an incredibly small population. And as you have pointed out, their country is a mess. Alcoholism,
drugs, poor diet, terrible pollution, and a generally sickly. population on top of a culture of nihilism and
"hold my vodak and watch this!" is just making it worse. Nationalism is about the only thing holding the
country together...The last time their kids started coming home in bags (from Syria), people started getting pretty restless in Moscow..Killing off a chunk of their people in prime child making age range won't help
their situation either..

this is as flimsy as the Russian Collusion hoax. I'm guessing because it was 2013, not as many people in here were supportive of the marathon bomber's photoshopped glamour shot on the cover of the Rolling Stone and subsequent passing of the blame in the accompanying article...but someone decided to put that cover out there, and there were plenty of assholes OK with it.

Putin is saber rattling at the orders of Xi in China, to help China with the Taiwan saber rattling. Putin is basically Xi's biatch. Reason being, China has done to eastern Siberia what Putin has done to eastern Ukraine. If Putin objects, Siberia will explode with Chinese separatists.

There have been some wild shiat they have thrown out there.  They aren't known for being very creative. That leads to some dark conclusions about time travel and pizza shops on Mars.

Russian nukes pointed at Beijing beg to differ. Russia has a balanced trade with China. China doesn't control shiat.
