Tell me, please, how cute and cuddly were they?? Where they just as cute and cuddly as us when it came to backing the dictators guilty of some of the worst crimes against humanity and mass killings as us?? Because I cannot accept anyone being more cute and cuddly thaan us when it comes to destroying societies all around the world .... no seriously, I need a 1 - 10 scale of how we compared to each other in the cute and cuddly days of the Cold war??

Please enlighten us. What did Russia do during the cold war to the US, which was not first provoked by the US?

How about stealing the nuclear weapon design plans?

Who is doing that? No one. Stop exaggerating. We're saying Putin is bad, the Russian government is bad and it's oligarchy is corrupt. I don't think anyone is claiming the nation is bad. And I know no one is saying all Russians are bad.

Because they end up poisoned if they don't.

I worked with Russians back at the turn of the millennia. They loved the Rodina(motherland) but their gov't? Um, no. Don't confuse the two. Probably why they were here.

Great read!


I sincerely hope the majority will read it. But sadly, any constructive criticism against the US, is quickly being duped "america bashing", which in this case is far from the truth.

Who who? I don't get the question.

Moving the goal posts are you? The request was to name an event the Russians did that was unprovoked by the Americans. Seeing as how Germany's problems aren't Russia's problems, I'd say that your point is irrelevant to the discussion at hand.

Enough already with the victim thing. Your Russian foreign policy is to undermine your society to boost its own. It's politics and WE don't matter.

You are right. It is just politics, and we have been accepting the BS for so long that they don't even make any real attempt anymore to seem credible.

Everything that Morgan Freedman accuses Russia of in the video, has already been in full swing in America by the media, the government, and the people in positions of authority, for years.

The majority of Americans have been taught to distrust the media long before they started spewing this garbage about Russia influencing the elections. The news has been nothing but, lousy propagandized entertainment for far too long. They think if they say it is Russia's fault often enough and loud enough that someone will buy it. Most won't. They can clearly see all those trees making up that forest.

The truth is, if they polled everyone that voted in the election, very few if any, will tell you that Russia had anything to do with their decision.

The sad state of our American government had the the greatest impact on how the American people voted. Maybe the sorry state of our government is Russia's fault as well.

They have lied, cheated, abused, and disenfranchised the American people long enough now, that they are waking up and they are breaking free of their captures. It is taking a hell of a lot longer time than it should, but most people at least, are not buying as much of the bull.

Yea.

Once again your failure to actually read what I wrote has caused you to step in it. My comment was a rebuttal of the claim that there's some sort of push to make Americans hate Russians as a whole. So in your attempt to argue what I said, you actually buttressed my point.

Well I guess many nations cannot be defined as a race of people, but I think it's pretty clear what I mean. Nice diversion from my point though. Oh yes and I must be a snowflake for feeling some sense of offense when a high level celebrity is used to portray an entire nation as bad guys from a movie script...


I agree with what point you are trying g to make. However Russians CAN'T be victims of racism, because they are Caucasian (white)(sarcasm). Yes, I saw the picture of the black guys in Russian uniforms, but at some point in their family tree someone migrated there. The picture also brings me to another point. The ones making the witty proclamations about Russian not being a race also have to admit that being African is not belonging to a race or determining color either.

"Russian" isn't a race.


Neither is 'Mexican', but it didn't stop the crazies using the race card.


Let's just call the Russia bashers xenophobes - more accurate.

Of course, but since the Russians are under attack you just have to step up and defend them right?

I love this!

The Russians are all horrible people because Trump won the election and we've been told over and over the Russians made it happen.

But boy ... don't let anyone ever catch you ever paint any Middle Easterners who pray to Mecca with such a broad brush after one of the numerous terror attacks we often hear about these days because, you know, not all Muslims are terrorists and stuff.

The Irony is indeed delicious.

Hey since you apparently see the irony in your statement, maybe you can point the rest of us to all the people who are saying all Russians are bad?

We keep asking, but nobody seems to want to answer. Can't imagine why.

 I think The GOP, DNC and the MSM are doing a far better job at making America weaker than the Russians


Sounds like the Russians got you. Hook line and sinker. You believe everything they set out to make you believe.


Really , so please eloborate on how the GOP, DNC, and the MSM have done a bang up job in bringing people together within the last 3 decades.

But nobody in the US or UK should have an opinion on that considering the assassinations and "enhanced interrogation techniques" that their lifestyle and freedoms are owed to.

Bottom line. A higher population of Russians support Putin than any American or British leader has had from their own population, probably ever.

And your only come back is that they will die otherwise?

If your speaking for the Russian people, there is no data to support your claims.

A vast majority of the Russian population supports Putin. All you can produce is lies and speculation to object to that. So by default your saying the Russians are evil for supporting Evil Putin. Unless your NOT saying Putin is as bad your saying he is...
