I agree with neo, it's not that it isn't a valid term, it's that its a subconscious strategy of belittling the entire country in the eyes of the American populace.

I don't want America getting involved in foreign conflicts like that of Ukraine and Russia. Let them sort their own mess out. That being said, I can't ignore the utter garbage Putin apologists here are trodding out. Really now this is suppose to be ATS for goodness sakes.


LOOOOOOOOOOOL !

So now I am a Putin apologist!

Too funny.

Except the little green men aren't mercs or contractors. They're GRU. The term has become so prevalent it even has its own Wikipedia page.

The term was being used by Russian media before Biden or Western media ever used it. So was Russian media using it to disparage their own country?

No, but black people can use the N word & I can't. Same concept. Whether RT calls their own soldiers that or not, it still does nothing but subconsciously sway american public opinion towards the negative.

Guess i have to state the obvious, but I share my contempt equally between Biden, his boss, and Putin.

But I'm an Putin apologist.

Never been called one of those. I am going to have to add it to the other list of things I get called.

Only being in existence for a year explains it.

I don't think the american people need this government to sway them about what's happening in Ukraine. It's pretty darn apparent, Russia's involvement is pretty obvious. I find it amusing how some people are getting all up in arms that this administration has an actual position on what's happening in Ukraine. What you expect them to ignore what's happening there, not say anything? Don't be coy.

LOL It's alright, I've been called a shill, a libtard, a neo-con, a nazi, and probably a number of other things on here that I can't remember. Wear those accusations like badges of honor against ignorance.

I don't think I'm being coy, & I definitely don't think think anything changes between one administration & the next.

I do, however, think that the human construction of politics is a laughable representation of our service as willing slaves & to truly care about anything done by TPTB is an effort beyond futility.

Why are you guys surprised he is calling them little green men??
Or did you not notice them being called this from the VERY beginning??
I swear people have zero memory these days.

July 7th 2014



When Moscow-backed troops appeared in Crimea earlier this year, the media dubbed them the "Little Green Men." Now NATO members should ask themselves how they will respond if the soldiers begin appearing in Estonia and Latvia too.


April 17th 2014



For the first time, Putin acknowledged that the well-armed soldiers in unmarked uniforms who took over Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula were Russian. He seemed annoyed, however, by the widespread description of them as "little green men"



March 11th 2014



Another phrase used by reporters in Russia and Ukraine alike is "little green men", which refers both to the colour of their uniforms and their unconfirmed origin.

"Little Green Men" is what the Russian special forces that entered the Crimean peninsula were called. In this case, it was not a gaffe.

Really Joe ? Putin is sending little green men into Ukraine? I don't know whether to laugh or cry at this. Such an asinine way to describe Russian troops. Biden has made some epic mistatements in the past. Often being over looked because Biden is so loveable. Hey everyone ? Russia is sending little green men in to Ukraine! What's next ? Aliens, reptilians, and chubacabra's ?



Vice President Biden is questioning Moscow's committment to peace, accusing Russian President Vladimir Putin of sending unmarked soldiers known as "little green men" into Ukraine.


Source

Obviously I don't think Biden seriously meant little green men from mars. It's just the way it sounds. Biden gaffes are well known to most people paying attention to American politics. Hell maybe even Putin himself got a chuckle from dear ole Joe.

Biden Gaffes.

It deeply disturbs me that Biden is one heartbeat away from being the president.

I think Biden has a little green brain................the size of a pea.

Rather than laugh or cry...maybe read/search a little? Biden did not coin the term "Little Green Men"...

Not a Gaffe...a term used by Journalists and Citizens aware of the conflict.

You need to turn-down your freak-out meter a little IMO. Their seems to be a spate of knee-jerk "gotcha" OPs that turn out to be embarrassingly false with the slightest amount of research.



It was first used during the 2014 Crimean crisis, when said soldiers have occupied and blockaded most military bases in Crimea. Due to the green colour of their uniforms and modern weaponry local people started to call them martians too. An expert from Suomen Sotilas, a Finnish independent magazine, recognized them carrying a complete suite of equipment exclusive to Russian special forces, such as Pecheneg machine guns.

en.wikipedia.org...(GRU)

BBC..
"Little green men" or "Russian invaders"?

"Another phrase used by reporters in Russia and Ukraine alike is "little green men", which refers both to the colour of their uniforms and their unconfirmed origin. "

The ignorance is either genuine or feigned...either way it is the same old irony of rushing to falsely call someone ignorant...due to the fact that you don't care to recognize your own or remedy the same.

I don't understand people that rush to broadcast a claim without investing at least the 60 seconds of googling required to educate oneself first about the topic you think so important that it is OP worthy.

It pollutes intelligent discussion IMO.
