Well, Misha Flynn and the GOP HAVE to keep the lines of communication open, and some stuff can't be phoned in...

There's going to be another Russian Revolution isn't there?

Should be fun seeing who winds up controlling the nukes.

Tucker and many others believe they're living in Russia in the Qland Oblast.
 
2022-09-28 9:42:43 AM  
Except for you Snowden, you can stay there.

I'm sure their maintenance has been up to the meticulous standard of everything else in Russia.

I'd say given the sheer number of nukes that they have statistically at least one works. And it only takes one.

I mean At this point if the light bulb hasn't gone off then do we really want them to come back? Lol

Rest assured, they are still plenty of westerners trying to turn a healthy profit over there, and the potential profits are getting larger.
 
2022-09-28 9:46:42 AM  
At least we don't need to worry about Snowden.  They made him a citizen.
 
2022-09-28 9:46:45 AM  
I love that the pride flag is flying at the US embassy in Russia.

That's gotta piss off the orcs.

He's now a Russian citizen

Perhaps shocking to Subby, but some people actually leave the hometown where they are born and travel out into the world.

If I were an expat executive I wouldn't have fled Russia just because of the Ukraine invasion, assuming I still had my big paycheck coming in each month. The draft and door to door searches might change that calculus though.

I shouldn't be shocked, but I am.
 
2022-09-28 9:47:51 AM  
They need to issue the same warning to all the Russian camgirls. I'm sure Sweden or Denmark would take them in.
 
2022-09-28 9:48:08 AM  
Like the same idiots who stayed in Afghanistan until the bitter end then went wailing to their congressmen that we weren't pulling all the stops to rescue them, they can get bent.

Read the @&#%ing room, as it were. You're not safe there. GTFO. Don't pretend you didn't know or weren't told.

It's time to drop bunker buster bombs on Putin's "house"?

/let him die in a bunker much like Adolf Hitler

"Russian authorities have arrested US citizens who have participated in demonstrations."

What kind of dumbass go to Russia to participate in demonstrations? Is this a moron bucket list thing along with hiking on the Iran/Afghanistan border?
 
2022-09-28 9:49:05 AM  
Seriously though...  What does this mean?

Is this an indication of an imminent attack?  And by that, I mean either from within or without.

That's because you are not a good person. Or at least you pretend to not be one in order to get people smarter than you to reply to your stupidity. Weird way to spend your time on this planet, but you do you I suppose.

I agree. I don't think you would make a moral choice either.
 
2022-09-28 9:50:21 AM  
It's too bad the 4th of July isn't coming up soon - all the Republicans would be in Russia.

Some farkers actually leave the town they were born in. Now if I'm working in my mud hut, I'm not leaving just because the missionary next door got his head sawed off, I'm expecting regular direct deposits, right? Anywho

Long as you know that your choice to play fast & loose with your life doesn't create an emergency or obligation on our part, enjoy. We shouldn't do anything to save you if things go south though. Hard to enjoy a paycheck from a gulag.

Did Steven Seagal get conscripted yet? He should. He could take on the whole Ukrainian army all by himself!

Hi, I was born on another continent than I currently live. This is not unusual.
No amount of money would be worth being in Russia right now.

Any American in Russia chose to be in Russia. Which means they had uptions. Fark them all. Hopefully Vlad does us a favor and puts them on the front line.
 
2022-09-28 9:55:40 AM  
So, does that mean the GOP are going to have to recall their page boys?
 
2022-09-28 9:56:30 AM  
Ahow they going to leave now?  Aren't all flights booked for weeks do to Russians fleeing the country?

Seriously, if you are visiting a country, STFU about their local politics. You are a guest, act like one.

At best the locals get pissed. At worse the government gets pissed. Either one isn't good.

There are probably plenty of seats on flights to places where Russians need a visa.

I think that's one of the many points of this.

With how many widows there are soon going to be, the stock of Russian Mail Order Brides is going to drastically lower the entry price point as the supply level is able to meet or exceed demand.

/God I'm in a weird headspace this morning.

I'm sure he's flapped his gums to the FSB and the GRU making him a traitor.

You are aware that being able to quit your job and "start over" on the other side of the world because of a political decision which you have zero control over is a very privileged choice, right? One that 99.9% of people in the world don't have?

You sound like one of those libertarian types arguing that starving Ethiopians should just start walking until they find food. If you're a salary worker being paid to live in Russia, it would and should take a lot for you to abandon ship. It would have to be absolutely dire.

It does make me wonder, as Bulgaria and Poland sent the same warning to their people yesterday. It could be coincidence, or they know something we (the citizens) don't know.

I think they're more concerned by the whole "Welcome to partial mobilization" snatch and grab of people that is going on.

* Unless you're Anthony Bourdain.
 
2022-09-28 10:02:45 AM  
I would have gone for a vacation a few years back. Say when Bourdain was drinking around eastern Europe. I use to be able to finish off enough vodak to fit in. Wouldn't have wanted to live there no matter how much you paid me or how hot the women are... And there's some really hot ones.

the bbc are putting the emphasis on the possibility that people with dual nationality won't be immune from the draft. So if you're working there and have both a Polish and Russian passport, being Polish won't stop you being sent to the lines.
