    Indeed it doesn't, both show progression in her views of the 2016 and subsequent election.

    That does not make a bit of sense

    Clinton and the DNC via Perkisn Coie colluded via Steele as a cut out with Steele's "Russian sources" to fabricate the Russian dossier.

    Trump sanctioned Russia.
    Trump pushed NATO to spend more to defend against Russia.
    Trump deployed US troops to Poland.
    Trump thumped Assad twice despite Russian protection.
    Trump blocked Nordstream II and pushed for US energy exports to Europe to counter Russia.
    While Trump was POTUS, the US smacked the hell out of the Russian mercs in Syria.
    Trump pushed for modernization of both our nuclear arsenal and means of delivering it to counter Russia's Posieden doomsday weapons.
    Trump provided lethal aid to the Ukraine

    Trump was a disaster for Russia

    My original statement: Honest question, we have cash payments from the wife of the mayor of Moscow to Hunter Biden, pics of Joe meeting with other foreign "business" partners of Hunters, the request made to the Swedish House to make a key for Joe so he could meet privately with Hunter's Chinese "business" partners, Hunter's emails saying his dad was in on the take, the unreported income from Hunter shelling out cash to fix up Biden's home, the sudden inexplicable US reversal on Nordstream II, the virtual abandonement of Afghan interpreters including the deportation of at least one already here, kids in cages on the border, Mayorkas signaling Hispanics on the border are welcome, but Cubans fleeing a communist regime are not, the Biden Administration working with social media companies to control the discussion about covid on the internet, Hunters blow straw nose art, at a minimum hundreds of voters were double counted ballots in Fulton County GA, inflation is out of control, young families can't afford homes or find cars to buy..... the list goes on and on and you are still stuck on Trump? Biden is Potus..... He has been for several months, and his entire admin is shady and is a train wreck in fast forward speed..

    And considering the last time you gave a list like that, it was just the usual "Here's Trump's Accomplishments" copy-and-paste nonsense and exaggerations that I've seen dozens of times from Trump's followers, I'm pretty sure that the above laundry list is equally non-credible. For starters, the very first item on that list is almost certainly bullshit, but you're parroting Trump's accusations and presenting them as fact.
    No, Hunter forgot where he dropped off his laptop. The NYPost has an imaged copy (not hacked, after being abandoned it became property of the computer repair shop). So does the FBI which is why the main FBI child porn investigator signed a warrant to seize it. I already provided that link.


    Furthermore, Trump has not gone away, the former Republican Party is still firmly in his grip and he has never been held accountable for the crimes he committed while in office, starting with his inciting of the January 6th insurrection that you care so little about. So yeah, I'm still "stuck on Trump".
    How many times do I have to say I want those who engage in political violence to be held accountable; All of them. You seem to be engaging in a pattern of excusing one side but not the other. It doesn't matter if you are for Marius or Sulla, it will not end well for the Republic. Political vengeance and double standards of justice kill representative government. What you are actually advocating for by only wanting one side held to account is the death of our country. The only way out is too hold both sides to the same standards of law and justice.

    Anyway, I linked every claim with a valid media or edu source. I'm sure you will find some reason to reject them, cognitive bias is a bitch, but they are all supported by evidence most damningly that laptop.

    Cold Warrior speaking here. We ALWAYS assume the end result is a nuclear exchange anytime shooting occurs between the superpowers. Putin is a Cold Warrior.

    No, we did not. If only to learn whom our friends are and whom our enemies are.

    Yes, they did. They were far too busy choosing sides than worry about intel work. The fact that they've let Beslan happened after Moscow Theatre slipped through should tell you how focused they were.

    That's the point. There was a line that Putin would not cross.

    Clark went to Shinseki (who refused) and then Clinton (also refused) to insert an American task force into Pristina. The point is that had it been an American taks force instead of a Canadian Battle Group, there would have been shooting. Putin was aware of that fact and WOULD NOT commit to an operation as suggested by that article.

We gave Obama a list of targets to hit to cripple Assad's chemical strike capabilities.

    OK, but...that point has never been in dispute, certainly not by me.

    Probably because it's all completely within the character, capability and motivation of Putin.

    Sir, Putin put exactly as much effort into interfering with the election process of the United States as he needed to in order to destabilize and sow doubt in that process. Such black propaganda efforts are age-old KGB tactics and goals.

    With Trump taking office, he succeeded beyond his wildest dreams.
    No shit, Sherlock. The point remains that Putin DID NOT EXPECT Trump to win.

    Sir I remember Pristina Airport quite well. And nowhere in the historiography have I read how Bill Clinton was the one stabbing his finger on a map of the airport yelling "I don't give a damn how many Russians are there, punch a whole through their lines and take that damn airport!". All fingers instead point to overreach by a particularly asinine and insistent SACEUR, who was subsequently and justifiably sacked as a result of his idiocy.

    I'm sorry Sir, but your assessment of Hilary Clinton initiating a nuclear war against Russia for interfering in the U.S. election simply is not credible.

    Well, to be fair she did put direct military responses on the table

    Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party presidential nominee and former US secretary of state, has said that if she becomes president cyberattacks against US interests will be treated "like any other attack" – and that includes military action.

    The candidate, who has been investigated by the FBI over use of a private email server to store classified material, was speaking on the campaign trial at the American Legion National Conference in Cincinnati, Ohio on 31 August.

    "As President, I will make it clear that the United States will treat cyberattacks just like any other attack. We will be ready with serious political, economic, and military responses," she told the attendees, largely made up of veterans and their supporters.

    "We are going to invest in protecting our governmental networks and our national infrastructure," she continued. "I want us to lead the world in setting the rules in cyberspace. If America doesn't, others will."

    The speech made a number of references to the rise in cybercrime – and the various rival nation states that Clinton asserted are currently attacking the US. Most recently, Kremlin-linked hackers were suspected of hacking into the computer networks of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

    "We need to respond to evolving threats from states like Russia, China, Iran and North Korea," Clinton said in the speech. "We need a military that is ready and agile so it can meet the full range of threats and operate on short notice across every domain – not just land, sea, air and space but also cyberspace.

    "You've seen reports. Russia's hacked into a lot of things, China has hacked into a lot of things. Russia even hacked into the Democratic National Committee, maybe even some state election systems. So we have got to step up our game. Make sure we are well defended and able to take the fight to those who go after us."
