Can't say I'm surprised. The Russians have the GOP by the balls...

“We are a warring country, make no mistake. We have a commander-in-chief. He collects territories, wins wars, and introduces new weapons," boomed Igor Ashmanov, one of Putin’s official representatives during the election campaign.

But let's continue to cozy up to Putin, not punish him and leave ourselves exposed to further cyber attacks....

With this outrage, Putin has managed to make killing dissidents with ricin pellets in an umbrella gun seem subtle.

BREAKING: The Times of London are reporting that senior UK government sources have said police and security services have established enough evidence to link Moscow to the attempted killings of Sergei Skripal and his daughter.


This is what Russian president Putin said just two days after Skripal was poisoned with a nerve agent:

"Those who serve us with poison will eventually swallow it and poison themselves"
____________

Here's state run Russian TV reminding viewers just last night that betraying the motherland can be fatal wherever you are:

"Being a traitor is one of the most dangerous professions in the world"

More Jim Sciutto Retweeted Natasha Bertrand
When I covered Litvinenko murder in 2006, some UK officials referred to it as the first radiological terror attack because the damage spread to hundreds of people via primary, secondary and tertiary contamination. Can anyone remember what penalty Russia paid?
https://twitter.com/jimsciutto/status/973260801728483328

Russia deployed a military grade nerve agent in a city of 40,000 people. Chemical warfare experts were sent to the scene and hundreds of people may have been poisoned. In England. In 2018.

Putin kills again in Great Britain. Trump will probabky say Glushkov's death was an accident from inadvertently running into a hypodermic needle filled with cyanide. He follows in the path og his boss, another Putin critic, Berezovsky also apparently died accidentally. It's all just a coincidence!

Russia has been at war with the West at least since Russia invaded Ukraine on 20 Feb 2014. Now that Russia has attacked Britain (on 4 March 2018) there is no excuse for any Western democracy to fail to come to the aid of Ukraine and Britain to defeat Russia and save civilization.

Modern kleptocracies like Putin's are built on laundering & keeping their looted riches in the free world. This is also their greatest weakness, one the West has not exploited, preferring the fiction of common ground & engagement.

So we have 6 more years of Putin to contend with. He has shifted the battlefield. He is targeting the American people, our infrastructure, our safety and our security. This POTUS (yeah right) and likely the next needs to have a plan for that.
