Turner: KGB 'Honorable,' Iraq 'Naked Aggression' Like Soviets in Afghanistan
Newsbusters ^

Posted on 11/30/2008 3:04:21 PM PST by chessplayer

“The KGB, I think, was an honorable place to work” with “worthwhile” achievements, CNN founder Ted Turner contended in an interview aired on Sunday's Meet the Press in which he blamed the U.S. for starting the battles with Vladimir Putin “by putting the Star Wars system in Czechoslovakia and Poland” and, when host Tom Brokaw recalled that Leonid Brezhnev reacted to Jimmy Carter's outreach by invading Afghanistan, Turner retorted with moral equivalence: “Well, we invaded Afghanistan, too, and it's a lot further -- at least it's on the border of the Soviet Union.”

Turner is everything that is wrong with the media-industrial complex, focused into one concentrated point of idiocy, arrogance, and demonic evil.

Ted never had any marbles, just marshmallows and they've been burned beyond recognition! He's a full blown, unadulterated idiot!

I’m glad to see Ted out there making statements like this. He’s always spoken his “mind” and is simply putting into words what the rest of the media thinks. It’s not too hard for even a casual observer to make the connection from Ted to the MSM. Keep talking Ted.

Obviously, all those years with Jane Fonda have left Ted with a debilitating case of syphilitic psychosis.

Methinks Jane Fonda has both his stones and his marbles in her purse.

Ted lost his marbles a long time ago. He's been diagnosed as BI POLAR. What that means is that every now and then his medication levels get out of whack and he starts "cycling".

At the moment he's simply delusional and should be ignored.

They told me that if George Bush were re-elected, only the rich could afford lobotomies - and they were right!

I am listening to Turner on MTP right now. I never realized just how much of a Marxist he is.

On MTP this morning Tom Brokejaw was more respectful to TT than he was to Laura Bush.

“I never realized just how much of a Marxist he is.”

He’s worse than a Marxist. He’s one of the rich who is fairly impervious to the effects of big government and who wants the rest of the ‘masses’ to live indistinguishably from each other, away from him. if he truly believes in Marxism then let him give away all his money and turn CNN into a not-for-profit (I know it might not be pulling much of a profit now, but that’s not by intent).

Oh, just ask someone who knew Litvinenko before he was poisoned with Polonium 210 by a former KGB agent if the KGB is ‘honorable’.

How did such a stupid ass make billions?

He better rethink how long the communists would put up with his ramdom “disloyal statements” before he found himself up against a wall and offered a final cigarette and a blindfold by a KGB Officer.

This should come as no surprise to anybody, especially now:

That phuckwit Turner is just auditioning for a post in the 0bama politburo.

Maybe special envoy to the old Communist Party in Russia.

After all, Ted gave so many of their fellow comrades at Pravda and Tass jobs after the fall of the Soviet Union, I’m sure he would be most welcome there.

Nothing could be further from the truth, but poor Ted doesn’t have a clue. Don’t hate the man. Pity him.

Turner is proof that America is such a great country that even a flaming moron can become a billionaire.
