Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, October 12, 2016

Vladimir Zhirinovsky, a flamboyant veteran lawmaker known for his fiery rhetoric, told Reuters in an interview that Trump was the only person able to de-escalate dangerous tensions between Moscow and Washington. By contrast, Trump's Democratic rival Hillary Clinton could spark World War Three, said Zhirinovsky, who received a top state award from Putin after his pro-Kremlin Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR) came third in Russia's parliamentary election last month. Many Russians regard Zhirinovsky as a clownish figure who makes outspoken statements to grab attention but he is also widely viewed as a faithful servant of Kremlin policy, sometimes used to float radical opinions to test public reaction.

A Syrian No Fly Zone could lead to open hostilities with Russia.

Aside from it being such an obvious, ham fisted attempt to obscure the truth, what strikes me as being so weird about "playing the Putin card" is how out of touch it is.

You guys are acting like you want Cheeto Crotchgrabber to grab you or something. Putin says "boo,now jump" and you ask whether you need to wave your white flag on the way up.

Prolix is filling his Depends over a no-fly zone because the no fly zone in Iraq apparently started a war, millions have died at the Korean DMZ and on and on. Maybe we better stop intercepting Soviet bombers when they enter US airspace because it might upset that nice Mr. Putin.

Do you appeasement monkeys seriously believe Putin, who can't afford to keep the lights on at home will go to war over Syria? Did he go to war with Turkey when Turkey shot down his jets? No. Does Putin fly his jets near Turkish territory anymore? No.

Putin is a tinpot dictator whose country is heading towards the need for CARE packages and he needs to wave his dick around to look good to his folks. Like his other little-handed buddy, someone we apparently now need to be obsequious towards, according to you white flag wavers,Kim junk drawer.

Face it, your adoration of the Crotchgrabber have emasculated you and made you dumb as him.

Bad news on the appeasement front! Badass Putin bows to Obama:

An unexpected round of multilateral talks on the future of Syria is to start on Saturday involving initially Russia, the US, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and possibly Qatar, the Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov has said. The talks will be held in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Lavrov told CNN he hoped that a meeting involving only those "with direct influence on the ground" in Syria would allow "a businesslike discussion, not another general assembly like debate". It was not immediately clear whether Iran would be represented.

The difference between Bush's appeasement insults and mine are Bush called anyone who opposed his illegal invasion of Iraq an appeaser, I call anyone who supports Putin's illegal invasion of the Ukraine an appeasement monkey. Now go back to eating your freedom Borscht.

Syria and Russia have been allies for decades and it never harmed a single American.

Now we're arming all sorts of jihadists including Al Qaeda, who has harmed Americans, in an effort to take down Assad.

Now some of our local luminaries are barfing out the idea that speaking out against arming our actual enemies is somehow an appeasement policy towards their imagined threat.

Would be funny if not for the massive refugee crisis the amoral policies they support have created.

And the Trumpeter appeasement monkeys like Prolapse wet themselves. You know, and I know, that Putin is cornered and will do nothing against the US, but those monkeys are terrified that this guy is speaking God's Own Words. It's typical rightwing gutlessness, like Cheeto Childmolester's claim that ISIS can defeat America. We saw the same from them way back when they were claiming al queda was "an existential threat to America".

After Dubya's gutless non-response to Putin invading georgia in 2008, Putin was convinced he could do what he wanted with the Ukraine. He was wrong and Obama's sanctions are helping to crush his economy. These appeasers want to apologize to him for the inconvenience and make sure he can invade whoever he wants. And, of course, shoot down any airliner he fancies.

And appeasement for what? Assad has been in charge of Syria for years and years and Russia has been their ally the whole time. Our enemies in Syria are Al Qaeda and ISIS - one of whom is being armed through policies you seem to support.

I am so in your head NG.

You do realize the US is on the wrong side of Syria. If a no fly zone is established it puts us in direct conflict with Russia as they are the ones in the air.

Do you think Russia will accept a no fly zone after they vetoed the last UN resolution on Syria?

Do you think it is in our best interest to shoot at Russian planes?

Good question, ask Turkey. Shooting down Russians seemed to work for them. Then again, you seem to believe Russians (and I'm glad you admit it's Russians, not Syrians doing the cluster-bombing in Aleppo) would have the cojones to fly against the USAF. They sure don't against the Turks.

But you're probably right, Mr. Chamberlain. It's best to run up the white flag, kiss Poland goodbye and get used to Russian bombers flying over Wichita. Because that Mr. Putin is so he-manly. And scary. In the same vein, we better bug out of South korea, too. Don't want to make Little Kim all agitated, do we?

We could discuss our terms of surrender at that meeting that the Russians just begged us to attend.

To enforce a "No fly zone" would require "boots on the ground." If boots on the ground is now okay with formerly peacenik liberals, then they should support the "no fly zone" plans with full confidence in their Qween.

What "white flag"? Russia isn't threatening us at all. The US is the aggressor in Syria. We have no dog in that fight but here we come again with our ususal "bombing people and flooding the warzone with weapons is the right thing to do" bullcrap. If antyhing, Assad, Russia and the US all have common enemies in Syria in the form of ISIS and other assorted jihadists including Al Qaeda.

And how would stopping our warmongering in Syria be "kissing off" Syrians? Do you think that our bombs somehow fail to kill civilians? Do you think that propping up the weaker factions in a war brings it to an end sooner? Do you think arming people who behead children is a good things for Syrians? I can't muster the arrogance to pretend they "need" us as we heartlessly foment a proxy war with them caught in the middle.

Our involvement over there works against our own interests and is morally indefensible. This "appeasement" stuff is nonsense to me.

The No Fly Zone over Syria that Hillary so desperately wants is just a whitewash to attack Assads forces and help ISIS plow their way over the country. Libya all over again. We flew strikes in advance of tribal rebels against Qaddafis "flying" tanks, "flying"checkpoints, "flying" troop convoys. Rebels were complaining they couldnt get forward air support fast enough. And now look how peaceful Libya is. All those 30k people that decided to swim in the Med last year and drown.

Only problem is that Russia is involved here. Which means we would eventually go toe to toe with them. We try to provide forward air support for Jahab Al Nusrat (AQ in Syria) by attacking Assad and Russian troops and they are likely to respond by installing S400 systems in place. It was an S200 that took out our "stealth" fighter in Serbia. Eventually we will be shooting at each other. With boots on the ground. The MIC will be thrilled, as money pours their way for munitions and armaments. Of course they will doughnate nicely to the CF in return. Saudi Arabia will get involved, which means more money. Oil prices will spike, more money. Stocks of war material will spike, more money. The only thing lost will be American lives, but every administration in the last 30 years see no problem in that, so long as there is more money.

And the sheep will rejoice about how progressive and tolerant carpet bombing civilians and destroying hospitals and schools is.

Those aren't conflicting statements when taken in context, Slappy.

Russia currently poses no threat to us and we have no reason to fight a proxy war or air war against them in Syria.

However, if Hillary has her way and we insist on starting an air war against them, the chances of our being nuked by Russia increases greatly.

Did you really want to portray yourself as being unable to follow that? No shame.

And you've still failed to identify any actual threat to which our reaction could be considered "appeasing". Because it doesn't exist. As we both know.

Reagan,
I've always been for limited/no exemptions. Mandatory service of one form or another sounds like a great way for everyone to have skin in the game.

I saw some people discuss this a while back, and suggested that it would also give everyone a shot at some form of the gi bill. I think in theory that's fine, but feel it would result in schools charging even crazier tuitions....but I digress.

I view mandatory service and the draft as two separate entities. If the children of CEO's, Congress members and ministers were forced to join up for military service along with poor kids then our foreign policy might be shaped in a very different manner. Also, GI Bill and tuition increases would get a lot more scrutiny.
