Same old story, discredit & smear the opposition or those who oppose you, but in this case, because its the Russian government and not the US, it must be true

I flagged it for the news - not your sentiment.

American shills are pretty common these days - no?

I'm sure every first world country has them, but spotting a blatantly obvious smear campaign is another thing all together - No?

Smear campaign? Putins telling Snowden to STFU - so in your hypothesis Russia has contradicting agenda's?

If there's one thing I've learned about Russia - It's that they have highly consistent agenda's.

After certain point, money only becomes a numbers game. If these guys are actually looting billions then I wonder what is their motivation. The billions that they loot or steal cannot be put to use to fun acitivities. Money in the bank is no good except to feel good for a while but after a while this feel good becoming stale too.

I doubt Putin is looting but corruption is in the vodka and blood of the Russian culture. No wonder his defense minister was caught in $100M scan. Problem is when such people are not prosecuted then others get encouragement to do the same.

Huh? What?

Putin didn't send back Snowden. He's pissed he showed up at all because it put pressure on the delicate relationship with the US. He want's to pretend to be America's friend while spying on them. Frenemies. Don't get me wrong, the US does the same thing.

He wants all the info Snowden has, and probably has hackers working on any network Snowden connects to.

He doesn't want to give him sanctuary, because it there would be too much blowback. But this is the guy who gives welcoming parades to any Russian spy caught and expelled back to the Motherland.

Former KGB agent, continuing friend of Mobsters, Bikers, and anyone with bloody hands in Russia.

This isn't news.

Putin is no frontman for peace or civic rights unless they are brought by bloodshed.

It's not about who's a saint or a sinner.

It's pointing out who's in control and who's using that control for absolute power. If the opposition were in power, I'm sure the thread and article would be about them.

Good guys don't make it to the top. Somewhere along the line, being a "good guy" is career suicide. Or suicide by action. i.e., oops he careened into a tree and his car blew up. That sucks. What a freak accident...

Update



Putin critic Alexei Navalny:

released from custody



Anti-corruption crusader and Moscow mayoral hopeful free pending appeal


A Russian court on Friday released opposition leader Alexei Navalny from custody less than 24 hours after he was convicted of embezzlement and sentenced to five years in prison.

The release came after a surprise request by prosecutors, who said that because Navalny is a candidate in this fall's Moscow mayoral race keeping him in custody would deny him his right to seek election.

The release, under the condition that he not travel outside Moscow, will extend until appeals of his conviction are completed.

After the Friday decision, a smiling Navalny emerged from the caged-off defendants' section of the courtroom and thanked supporters who held protest rallies on Thursday after his conviction.

Hehehehe! Gota love an Ace Ventura reference!

But I agree with the main thrust of your statements. All of these people are trying to do the right thing, and getting boned over by forces of staggering power and reach. The vast weight of thier balls is probably making the Earths orbit less stable.

Oh my dear, which surely absolves Putin of any wrongdoing ever, for the rest of history. Of course.

Remember this started from the above post and reply.

Putin reaping what he sows.

Putin may indeed reap what he sows. And in any case, whether Navalny is backed by the EU, the black hand, the golden zebra donkeys... if his fight against those people is not above board, as is the rest of his legacy, he may indeed one day reap what he sows.

Nothing wrong with pointing out the other sides sins. Something wrong if Putin is suddenly an innocent victim in the story though...

You really made me chuckle. You think Putin is a voice for righteousness and he is not happy about Snowden being there? OMG this is so laughable. Snowden allows Putin to take a stance and appear like the good guy as America is shamed and troubled by Snowden's leaks. Can you imagine what he would do with a Russian whistle blower? This is all right in line with the old Russian General's, Demitri Manuilski's words:




"War to the hilt between communism and capitalism is inevitable. Today, of course, we are not strong enough to attack. Our time will come in 20 or 30 years. To win we shall need the element of surprise. The bourgeoisie will have to be put to sleep. So we shall begin by launching the most spectacular peace movement on record. There will be electrifying overtures and unheard-of concessions. The capitalistic countries, stupid and decadent, will rejoice to cooperate in their own destruction. They will leap at another chance to be friends. As soon as their guard is down we shall smash them with our clenched fist." The source for this is:

"Communist Reforms; Take Them With Salt," The Daily Universe, Provo, UT, May 25, 1989, p. 3. A more recent study reported, "The preponderant base of evidence in the Soviet literature designed for internal use calls for their striking first against the west with maximum surprise when the situation calls for war and when the factors are in the Soviet favor." (Joseph D. Douglass, Jr. and Amoretta M. Hoeber, Hoover Institute at Stanford, Soviet Strategy for Nuclear War, 1979, p. 106.)


I think Snowden is a set up. I think his professional reveal is a big clue. The elites who control the world need to tear everything down including America, religion, security to bring in their new system. Very little happens outside of their control and if it does they quickly take it over and manipulate it to their ends. We are such pawns and sheep lead about by them.
