Skip to comments.Marco Rubio: Russia is a government of 'liars'
Posted on 03/02/2014 9:05:53 AM PST by don-o
Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said Russia cannot be trusted to fulfill its international commitments because their government lies on a regular basis and is increasingly behaving like an enemy of international peace and international norms.
Appearing on NBC's Meet the Press, Rubio reacted to Russia's Friday invasion of the Crimea region of Ukraine by calling the Russian government liars that the U.S. cannot trust.
Let's call it what it is, Rubio said. They are lying this government is a government of liars, the Russian government. You see what's happening now in Crimea. I mean, they're claiming they're not there. You've got these individuals showing up in unmarked uniforms, wearing masks, but clearly they're Russian troops, even if they refuse to acknowledge it.

Yeah, well, Obama warned them. What more do you want? /s
This is the same Russia that Reagan stared down and other leaders kept in check. Obama? Bwahahahaha.
Well, he’s right, and what he should be doing is calling for a meeting of the US, the UK and Russia, who all signed an agreement guaranteeing Ukraine’s borders.
Mind you, I think the best thing might be to divide the country, since a large part of it actually is still Russian identified, particularly the Crimea. But this should be done through treaty and not through force.
Unfortunately we now have a government of liars as well.
2ndDivisionVet: USA is a government of liars, fools and dupes.
ALL governments are governments of LIARS, especially in foreign affairs.
LOL! And our isn’t? It finally dawned on me the other day. D.C. stands for Dunce Caps.
Marco, I appreciate your concern over the Russian invasion, but what about the MEXICAN INVASION!
“Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said Russia cannot be trusted to fulfill its international commitments because their government lies on a regular basis”
Wait a minute I thought he was talking about DC in general and Obama.
I don’t know which govt. lies more, theirs or ours.
If you like your health plan you can keep your health plan period.
The Obama regime is a government of liars.
Mr Rubio, may I introduce you to the American government (Mr. Pot) and the Russian government (Mr. Kettle).
Why yes, Senator, you are very astute to notice that they are both very much black.
Hey! I’m watching Netflix here. I don’t have time for this.
Thank God our politicians tell the truth!
This from a guy who calls criminal illegal alien invaders “Undocumented”
Well they have a long way to go to even approach anyway near the mac daddy administration as liars.
This opinion offers some insight
“3. Everything you think you know about Ukraine is wrong.
Everyone looking for a proxy side to support or oppose in the Ukraine political dynamic will be disappointed. Ukraine politics go by their own rules. Todays neoliberal ultranationalist could be tomorrows Kremlin ally, and visa-versa. Just look at what happened to the Orange Revolutionnothing. To wit:
a) One Orange Revolution leader, Yulia Tymoshenko, wound up turning against her partner Viktor Yushchenko and allying with Yanukovych to strip Yushchenko of presidential powers; later, Tymoshenko allied with the Kremlin against Yushchenko; now shes free from jail and the presumptive leader of the anti-Yanukovych forces.
b) The other Orange leaderthe pro-EU, anti-Kremlin Viktor Yushchenkowound up allying with pro-Kremlin Yanukovych to jail Yulia Tymoshenko.
c) John McCain has been the big driving force for regime change against Yanukovych, but McCains 2008 campaign chiefs lobby firm, Davis Manafort, managed Yanukovychs political campaigns and his lobbying efforts in the US.
d) Anthony Podesta, brother of President Obamas senior advisor John Podesta, is anotherYanukovych lobbyist; John Podesta was the chief of Obamas 2008 transition team..”
I don't disagree with you about dividing the country. But I would be more specific about your statement that "a large part of it is actually Russian identified...".
According to a 2001 Ukraine census 78.1 identify their ethnicity as "Ukrainian" while 17.3 percent identify their ethnicity as Russian.
Marco, McCain, and Graham have caused almost as much, if not more, damage to the US then obummer and his band of idiots.
LOL - that’s rich. Russia is a government of liars.
Pot - kettle.
