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?

al Tanf

In his tell-all expose, former United States national security adviser John Bolton suggests he played a central role in convincing President Donald Trump to keep a remote Special Forces outpost in Syria’s eastern desert after the president unexpectedly ordered all US troops out of the country in December 2018.

According to Bolton’s new book, during a meeting with Trump at Iraq’s al-Asad air base on Dec. 26, 2018, the former national security adviser prompted Lt. Gen. Paul LaCamera, then-commander of the US-led coalition against the Islamic State (IS), to voice support for keeping al-Tanf garrison.

which translates into a partition of Syria

The Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) might consider allying with Damascus only if it loses the US support once the US troops withdraw from Syria, Abdul Hakim Bashar, a co-founder of the Kurdish National Council in Syria and vice-president of the National Coalition of Syrian Revolution and Opposition Forces, told Sputnik.

Last week, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem said he hoped Kurdish forces in north-eastern Syria would soon come back to the side of Damascus to expel foreign troops together.

Bolton says that he told Trump about the Russians putting a bounty on US troops in March of last year. If he did and Trump didn’t act on it then why would he have stayed silent about it after he got canned? Maybe he wanted people to read about it in his book, but then he could be pointing out which page people could turn to and read it themselves?

Ray McGovern has a new article on this and he talks about how Russia wouldn’t want our troops killed because he is against ISIS getting a foothold anywhere close to its country. Ray says that Russia was helping us fight them in Afghanistan up to 2015 and only stopped after Obama overthrew the Ukraine president. Great job Obama. You’d think our intelligence agencies would know that. Ray's article is a great read.

The CIA’s democrat in congress are fully vested in keeping the war going. So is the Afghan government. Sorry to plug my essay here gjohn, but I posted Saagar’s video from today that talks about this. And posted the latest crap from the Slimes. Both worth looking at.

"It is remarkable that a sitting president would express less than complete confidence in the American democracy’s electoral process."

Hillary: "I'd be president today if Comey, Bernie, Bros and Putin hadn't stolen it from me."

@snoopydawg

It was Kimberly that talked about Russia helping us in Afghanistan.

This is a good read as is Ray's.

That is by having a military or spook history. Plenty of the 2018 new reps. met that criteria.
