Everyone’s known this for 60 years.

Also that there wouldn’t be much left of Mother Russia either.

Odd to be bringing it up as if it were news.

Kinda makes me wonder if the missing 777 is being painted to look like a US military jet or to broadcast signals like one just so the ROP can load a nuke on it and then detonate it in Russian Federation airspace to convince the Russians the US has just nuked them, all a follow up with the rhetoric about US threats yad yada yada.

Iran laughs its ass off while Russia then retaliates against US assets.

Sounds like Raytheon’s marketing department has been sending flowers to Russian State TV again.

"Americans themselves consider Putin to be a stronger leader than Obama," he added.

Why yes, we do actually. Spaceba to you.

Too bad Kerry is jokingly called Lurch, because there really is no comparison. The character Lurch was physically imposing, amazingly strong, morally good, and quite proficient at his work—none of which seems like Kerry.

Then they are predictable, for the most part.

Its the ones that go silent that are dangerous.

Who has the most silence lately?

He allegedly uses the show as a soapbox to promote the Kremlin's policies and denigrate the West[2] and is controversial for "maligning homosexuality and speculating about Western-led conspiracies" on the programme as well as using it to attack the political opposition to Putin.[3] In one televised commentary, he said "[Gays] should be prohibited from donating blood, sperm,... And their hearts, in case they die in a car accident, should be buried or burned as unfit for extending anyone's life,"[2] suggesting that the internal organs of homosexuals should be burned and buried rather than be accepted for organ transplants.[3] In Sweden, he became controversial in December 2013 when he criticized the moral values of that country in response to the 2013 Ukrainian protests, for which he partly blamed the Swedish political leadership and Swedish foreign minister Carl Bildt[4] as well as the government of Poland, accusing Poland and Sweden of fomenting the protests to avenge defeats in centuries-old Polish-Russian and Russo-Swedish Wars.[3] The Moscow Times has considered him as ″the Kremlin's New Chief Propagandist″ .[

this is so much better!!!

"In response to a CNN article detailing the uglier national monuments around the world — which included a Russian monument to World War II, Kiselyov hit America hard. He said that the Iwo Jima Memorial in Arlington, Virginia, a famous Marine Corps war memorial, was a tribute to gay sex."

The key words in your long link are...”to promote the Kremlin’s policies”

Yes, I know. Putin gave him awards, but still he is like a drama queen, no? Russian TV is very different than ours.

They can be really really out there. So this made me laugh.

In fact you can find Dugyn’s website on the net fairly easily and it is downright frightening. I am at work or I would pull it up....but not here.

The only sad thing is—he’s right. That’s something we should remember—They have the ultimate weapon and can fry us—just as we could fry them. In 1936 Hitler had no such thing—even in 1938. What does this say—Tread with care? No one wants WW III over a bit of land that should have been Russian in the first place.
