The Dem's Neocon obsession with Russia is costing us dearly
Of the Democratic Party's many betrayals of it's grassroots base, uniting with the neocons, the same group that have never been right about anything, may have been the worst stab-in-the-back. It's not a coincidence that Democrats went nuts about Russiagate at the same time that neocons took over the Dems foreign policy.
So now we have the transparently bullsh*t story of Russia giving the Taliban money in order to incentivize them to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan. This is how what was formally a real newspaper, the WashPost, reports it.
Yep. The Taliban would never have dreamed of shooting U.S. troops had not Russia given them money to do it. Gah!
And this is despite both the Pentagon and NSA not believing this leak.
The Dems have become the CIA's biggest fans because the neocons love anyone that supports bloodshed and chaos.
The neocons are using this underhanded method because Trump appears serious about ending the endless 19-year old war.
Democrats and Neocons will never be satisfied with conditions in Afghanistan. They will ALWAYS find a reason why our troops must be there, in harm's way.
While neocons will always support sending our soldiers off to kill and die, they also strongly oppose anyone suffering consequences for these pointless wars. Especially when we commit war crimes.
Sixty-seven member states of the International Criminal Court have thrown their support behind the body, after an unprecedented US move to impose sanctions on its staff.
In a joint statement drafted by Costa Rica and Switzerland, more than half of the 123 of the ICC's members showed their "unwavering support" for the tribunal and the Rome Statute that created it..The signatories include Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, South Africa and Tunisia.
When is the last time Australia, Canada, and the U.K. have opposed the U.S. about anything?
Missing from this list is Germany, but they are on their own list for very different reasons.
The European Commission is preparing measures to protect the European Union as it faces threatened U.S. sanctions, which could break international law, on a link to carry gas directly from Russia to Germany, the EU’s foreign policy chief said.
“The EU’s position on U.S. sanctions against European companies that carry out legitimate and lawful activities under European law is unequivocal. They are unacceptable and contrary to international law, and the Union firmly opposes them,” Joseph Borrell said in a written response dated June 25.
“The Commission is preparing the ground for the adoption of an enhanced sanctions mechanism that will improve Europe’s resilience to the effects of extra-territorial sanctions imposed by third countries.”
How ironic is it that the neocons anti-Russia warmongering is the reason that Europe is distancing themselves from us?
