    We are pretty much on the same side philosophically, and yes Bernie got fucked over, however he stood no chance to win. When the cards are laid down one must be pragmatic. I believe the whole "Bernie" thing fragmented the voting base and had a negative impact as far as electing Hillary. Right or wrong it is what it is.

    Exactly, and it resulted in Russia mentioning nuclear weapons. Imagine if classified intel were in the mix.

    Of course they lie. You think that a head of state, the Prime Minister or the UK, would openly accuse a foreign nation of committing an act of aggression on the UK soil without some degree of certainty? Out of curiosity, what does she gain from this lie?

    So much hostility dude.

    Don't know what you think was nonsense as a deflection. You're pretty lousy at actual civilized discussion and debate and I'm not interested in sifting through emotional rants.

    Offer up an interesting debate that we disagree on. The topic is fairly important, since showing you up offers me zero motivation.


    Why would I? It's childish of you to pick some completely unrelated topic in attempt to undermine my words here. Even worse, you're either too ignorant or dishonest to represent my views if you're trying to claim that I made any claim that Rich was killed by anyone working with the DNC or Hilary.

    Talk about weak shit. Step it up if you wanna be an arrogant ass and not just a fool. :cool:



    I'm sorry I asked for more than casual speculation. But it's clear you're married to the idea so continuing the discussion would be like me beating on an empty pinata.


    Can you quote that. Sounds like a misunderstanding. Maybe you're just confusing that with you not actually being convincing (that Russian aggression is caused by the presence of Trump).


    Not really.

    I don't pretend to be up on it such that I know what motivates Putin. Nor have I paid attention to Russia's behavior in the past to know this is any different. I asked for some logic and facts to back up the claim. Instead I got mostly insults. :(

    Yes, shes basing it on the fact that the nerve agent apparently can be linked back to Russia in the 1970s. Im skeptical whether that is even true but that alone is not evidence of Russian involvement.

    Beyond that she has said it "fits the pattern of Russian aggression", and that Russia would consider them assassination targets. There is no smoking gun here. Any number of intel agencies could have reproduced and executed this plan for reasons we dont know about.

    The Western Intel has been trying to blame Russia for everything, and there is a clear anti russian agenda in play. They tried to blame the election on the Russians, the leaked emails, 2 previous chemical weapons attacks etc.

    How can anyone take western intel at face value? They cant be trusted at all. Neither party can be trusted.

    I feel like its possible the Russians are being set up here. Its also possible they did it. Why do you think the headline was "Highly likely Russia behind attack", Highly Likely. They have nothing.

    I think heads of state do similar bullshit all the time and when asked to give evidence they never seem to have any.

    Gas attacks in Syria, U.S. gets attacked by Saudis and they attack Afghanistan, supposed WMD's in Iraq, chemical gas attacks in Lybia, etc.

    Pretty sure the Nazis were trying to destroy the Brits before they also turned on the Soviets.

    From reading this thread, Trump has convinced his cult that they should trust Putin over UK and USA intelligence. You need to remove your heads from your asses, good God how far can this go with you people. Everyone in the world, and USA government is bad, but not Putin. Its so odd.

    What the fuck are you talking about? Some Russian spook crop dusts Salisbury with nerve agent, and the UK responds by saying they consider it aggression and will respond appropriately, and that's the initiation of threats? Jesus Hell on a fuckbun, Sally.

    Im saying any interference into our election is the end result of previous administrations allowing far too long a rope with Russia. They haven’t really stopped being our adversary, even after the Cold War.

    No, the Brits declared war on Germany. For an understandable reason but the Nazi's tried to make an alliance with the UK against the Soviets.
    But I was just trying to be funny. All things considered, temporarily sitting with the Soviets to defeat the Nazis was the right decision.

    I just hope Germany stands close to the UK on this issues here. While the UK has some options to take against Russia.
    Germany has a lot more influence from an economic standpoint as Russias biggest trading partner.
    I could also see Germany taking a bit of mediator position because tensions between Russia and the West are bad for Germany.

    You think the British PM would start a confrontation with Russia if there was any way to avoid it? This is the last thing May wanted. She's been forced into it by Russia's callous, arrogant disregard not only for international kaw but the unwritten rules of the Great Game.

    I wonder if Putin is starting to lose it. So far he has pulled off everything brilliantly (chechnya, fucking the oligarchs, invading Georgia, fixing the Russian economy, annexing Crimea, etc.) but this latest stunt could go the wrong way.
