The U.S. meddles in Russian elections, in 4-sentence news story

The U.S. media is very, very concerned about foreign governments meddling in elections. That's why it dedicated a whole four sentences to our meddling.

(Reuters) - Russia summoned U.S. Ambassador John Sullivan on Friday over alleged interference by the United States in an election, Russian agencies TASS and RIA reported, quoting a diplomatic source.

Russian news agencies reported earlier that Sullivan had been summoned over an issue with accreditations for Russian journalists working in the United States.

The agencies did not specify which election was discussed. Russia will hold a parliamentary election next week.

The second sentence actually didn't apply to our election meddling, so it's really three sentences. Plus, the third sentence showed that Reuters didn't really care about the details. That's it.

Our election meddling is funny and entertaining. So it doesn't require any examining.

@Raggedy Ann
There will be consequences.
Our current government will say "That's the cost of doing business".
When people have nothing left but to crash and burn, our politicians will approve.

Afghanistan After the US. Picking Up the Pieces

Premiered 7 hours ago

The new film by RT Documentary Afghanistan after the US dissects twenty years of American presence in the country following the troops’ withdrawal after the Taliban returned to power.

After the 9/11 attack, the United States declared “war on terrorism” and sent troops to Afghanistan to track and kill Osama bin Laden, who the Afghan Taliban sheltered. But it took ten years for Americans to finally capture and execute bin Laden and ten more years before they eventually withdrew from Afghanistan.

Mawlawie Jelaluddin Shinwari, former head of Taliban court, says, “the Afghans, like other peoples of the world, believed the Americans would come, and our country would flourish. However, as soon as they arrived in Afghanistan, the people immediately understood their real essence and the cost of American democracy.”

But the reality proved to be quite the contrary. There have been claims the entire US military campaign in Afghanistan was marked by torture, murder, and rape. Moreover, despite achieving the declared objectives, the western coalition continued to pursue the Taliban, seeming to ignore the resulting heavy collateral damage suffered by civilians. Very often the bombs, aimed at the Taliban hit schools, hospitals, and homes. During the US military presence in Afghanistan, the total number of civilian deaths is impossible to estimate, but it numbers in the hundreds of thousands.

What did the US and western allies leave behind?
