NATO is setting up military bases on Russian borders. Russia hires a bunch of teenagers to troll US public. Russia is playing dirty.

And while we are on the topic...

Exum claims large scale cover-up of doping positives
The former director of the United States Olympic Committee's drug control administration, Dr. Wade Exum, has re-filed a discrimination suit that claims, among other things, that USOC has covered up a large number of doping positives in the last 20 years.
I am sure there is "Icarus 1" movie about it.

There is also a nice picture (drawn by the French) showing the number of athletes tested positive for doping in 2017. 73 Americans versus 24 Russians. Obviously Russians had to be banned. Many ways to win Olympic medals I guess.

More likely that there are ShareBlue/MediaMatters paid posters.

Russia invaded sovereign country of Ukraine and took Crimea. Ukraine wishes it still had it nukes. North Korea notes easy lesson.

I take it Iraq, Afghanistan, Panama, Colombia, Panama, Yugoslavia, Somalia (plus a few more countries) are not sovereign. Drone strikes (90% of victims of which are not the intended targets) happen in non-sovereign countries as well.

Never mind that, USA history of interference in other countries elections is on par with that of Russia, if not better.

The Russians had 20,000 people at Sevastopol, which the US coveted as a Navy base. If a newly independent Puerto Rico had the Russians set up a navy base at Roosevelt Roads people up here would shit a brick. Same is same.

The US under Obama and Victoria Nuland negotiated the 2014 Maidan after a phony color revolution helped out by "activists" trained in Poland and Georgian and Lithuanian mercenaries sent into Freedom Square to shoot Berkut police. Shaakashvili got his reward for his part with a Ukrainian citizenship.

Here is Porkoshenko talking about how he'll handle the "Russian Invaders", by driving their kids into cellars by shelling them. Anyone else heard of an invading army that brought their children with them?

Russia was not having the US set up a navy base at Sevastopol. So they did some political work, which the Banderites, the Right Sector pukes and the Oligarch funded Azov brigade made easy to do. When ninety percent of Crimeans speak Russian as their first language then a "Ukraine for Ukrainians" isn't very appealing. The 20,000 soldiers were already there as part of an agreement with Ukraine.

The NATO appointed Kosovo parliament declared independence. A Russia protected referendum in Crimea elected to leave NATO's sticky fingers. Don't like what happened in Crimea than quit engineering color revolutions in Eastern Europe.

The US is setting up a Navy base at Ochakiv. So much for the Budapest memorandum, huh?

Arguments about good guys/bad guys are futile. I like the metaphor in one Russian novel about vampires (mind you, it is a Zen Buddhist novel). One vampire asks: "But this politician is a good guy, isn't he?", to which the older one replies: "So calle political scene is guarded by three lines of soldiers with automatic rifles, and to get there one has to sell their mother several times over. So the question doesn't have sense."

Mothers or not, politics is a dirty business. Money and power. I say render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's. it's fun to argue about Trump, Putin and the Olympics. At the end of the day though, if you want the improve the world start with yourself. Meditate, bitches!

As the author of the above novel said in his other book: when you find the world to be absolutely horrible place where everyone is a dick and you want to change it - start behaving towards others as you would like them to behave towards you. Not pretend for five minutes, but do it indiscriminantly to everyone all the time. Which, of course, is near impossible. But then we shouldn't complain, should we?

That's all we can really control anyway, all the rest is just opinions that don't truly affect anyone.

Immigration talks and bullshit walks. How many Russians immigrate to the US, vice going the other direction?
