I'll admit, after the shoot down of the Sukhoi and then that failed coup attempt, things are spiraling over there and it scares me a little. There's a whole lot of Russian firepower just across the border in Syria right now too...
Putin is saying the right things, saying this is an attempt to destroy their relations by radical islamists. I'm guessing Turkey is a big prize for Russia in a new Warsaw Pact way? The Sukoi, Erdogan saying taking out Assad was always the goal of Turkey's incursion and now this blatant assassination on camera by a police detective and yet Putin is playing it cool. I'd like to know what the long game is here.
I always wonder what it would be like to "wear the shoe on the other foot", and not come at things from an American perspective. It's impossible, but it would be interesting.
We always worry about Russia and think what they're doing is wrong.. but to the Russian people, is it the same? Obviously Communism was bad, for us and for them. Post USSR hasn't been great either for them, but do they.. I don't know, want to #MakeRussiaGreatAgain too?
I worked with a guy who was from Russia. He always tried to get me to go with him because it was supposedly so awesome. "Being from America, the chicks will be all over you!". I never went, but probably should've taken that opportunity for fully guided tour. Would've likely been awesome.
Alex Jones *snickers* says that Putin is saying it's a false flag. The globalists assassinated the diplomat to start a war to remain in power. The only thing that makes this interesting is the fact it was the same day the electorate was voting which somehow slipped my mind.
Yeah it says they didn't do something within a 10-day window so they had to let them off. Some of them are still on the hook for the death of a 3 year old, so that's something. They did say they can have a grand jury indict them for the other offenses to get them re-charged.
