Recommended Posts

Is this one of those things where Trump doesn't believe that Putin would do that?

Iran is currently doing it even though they lost one of their head terrorists, oopsie.

China does it, North Korea does it, Germany does it and yep America does it.

Amazingly Germany wants us to continue supporting them with military personnel and funds from "RUSSIA" while they pay RUSSIA billions of dollars for oil!

LOL heard that,,,,,,,,,problem is that is supposed to be the difference in us and them. When you operate as though you are the underbelly of a third world, second rate, wanna-be militia. We lose the respect and credibility that the founding fathers worked so hard to create

We spend and send billions of Americans monies to fund, arm, support foreign entities across the planet and they aren't expected to be using them tho kill themselves.  They are supposed to be used to kill the enemies of Americans.  RUSSIA and all the other countries I mentioned have been doing this as have we, for over a century.

No argument that it is happening, The rub is that it is unethical to place a bounty on even opposing soldiers lives. We should be above that.

Trump seems unhappy that this got out. So his solution to Russian bounties on American soldiers is to try to punish the leakers?

Trump Pushed CIA to Give Intelligence to Kremlin, While Taking No Action Against Russia Arming Taliban

"The failure to push back on the weapons program signaled to Putin that he could press further, said Michael Carpenter, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense with responsibility for Russia in the Obama administration. “When Western powers fail to push back, the Kremlin keeps prodding and probing — until it meets resistance, or until the costs for President Putin and his regime exceed the perceived benefits,” Carpenter wrote in Just Security on Friday.

What we now know is that President Trump not only failed to push back against Russia’s arming the terrorist group. That extraordinary act of omission was coupled with the president’s effort to push the CIA to cooperate with Russia by providing U.S. intelligence to the Kremlin on counterterrorism operations despite getting nothing in return, according to former officials."

Pentagon chief confirms he was briefed on intelligence about Russian payments to the Taliban

Secretary of Defense Mark Esper confirmed Thursday that he had been briefed on information regarding Russian payments to the Taliban, seemingly acknowledging that Russia's support for the militant group in Afghanistan is not a "hoax," as President Donald Trump has claimed. However, Esper also made clear that he has not seen intelligence that corroborates claims that American troops were killed as a result of the "bounty" payments, walking a delicate line between acknowledging a well-known threat and potentially clashing with the President.

Weird how things go, In the late 70s we were arming the Taliban against Russia, Now Russia arms the Taliban against us, Wonder who will be arming the Taliban in 30 years?
