Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, March 01, 2018

Vladimir Putin used his state-of-the-nation speech to deliver a stern warning to the U.S. that Russia has a series of new high-technology nuclear weapons that he said can overcome any defenses. "Efforts to contain Russia have failed, face it," Putin said in a nearly two-hour address he illustrated with video clips of the new arms, which included underwater drones, intercontinental missiles and a hypersonic system he said "heads for its target like a meteorite." The unusual display of military might was the most dramatic element of the speech, which started with pledges to deliver a "decisive breakthrough" to boost living standards and raise spending on health and infrastructure. Putin used the annual address to lay out priorities for the fourth presidential term he's expected to win easily in the March 18 election. But the toughest language was aimed at the U.S.

He said Russia had long warned Washington not to go ahead with anti-missile systems that Moscow feared could erode its nuclear deterrent. "Nobody listened to us. Listen now," he said, to a loud ovation from the crowd of legislators, officials and dignitaries.

Nice headline fail on the transfer to the front page.

Russia has a series of new high-technology nuclear weapons that he said can overcome any defenses.

This coming from a guy whose flagship, the Admiral Kuznetsov, spews smoke and has to be towed into ports.

Didn't someone tell him he's colluding with Trump? Someone should really let Putin know he needs to get with the narrative.

Putin's trying to help his buddy trump by distracting the media with a scary story. Just like he released the DNC hacks hours after trump's --------- tape came out.

So here we go. America needs an enemy. An evil enemy. It helps with recruiting. We've got one again. Mere terrorists are no match for a State power. Best case another Cold War. Worst case Nuclear annihilation. The Military Industrial Complex couldn't be any happier. Did these nitwits really think everyone else will just roll over for them? Is that what the Viet Cong, Taliban, Iraqis, Iranians, North Koreans and Libyans did? Is that what China is going to do?

Putin thanks you for your useful idiocy.

Putin failed to bring his people butter so he is trying to cinvince them, with cartoon images, that instead he has brought them "guns." In reality, he has brought them nothing but depression. His economy is failing, his people are becoming restless and he has to somehow convince them that the power of Russia has been returned to super-power status and hope they will be so proud they won't notice that they are poor.

Unless you are somehow thinking that Ben, through his post, is somehow a communist sympathizer or spreading communist propaganda, that term isn't appropriate here:

Urban Dictionary

TOP DEFINITION

Useful Idiot

If you have never heard the term "useful idiot" it was the attitude held by Vladimir Lenin towards communist sympathizers in the West (America). While Lenin and the Soviets held them in utter contempt they also viewed them as tools for dispensing communist propaganda to other countries, thus infecting foreign cultures with their totalitarian tripe. After their mission was complete, they were no longer "useful."

It's a term the refers to brainwashed American marxists who blindly support any ideology that gets themselves out of real work and causes others to pay their way.

It also refers to useful idiots who post inaccurate definitions [or usages] of the term useful idiot on sites like the urban dictionary. While they believe that they are making some sort of statement, they are actually providing perfect examples of the term.

Lol...

Any potential collusion is over brother. Pooty Poot has already gotten exactly what he wanted out of the deal.

A weak minded simpleton in charge of the most powerful nation on Earth that he has some kind of leverage over.

Sounds like Trump's other idol Kim Jung Un.

He's a useful idiot because he thinks Putin is either with or against trump when Putin doesn't give a ---- about trump. Putin cares for Putin, which in 2016 meant getting trump the presidency.

On the other hand, Sniper, you're a useful idiot because you fall for the actual propaganda, not just the divisiveness.

That's exactly what I've been telling you ------- for over a year now. It should have been obvious to anyone observing our foreign policy in Syria. It should have been obvious to anyone who spent two seconds thinking about the motive of personal enrichment for literally everyone surrounding Trump, except Bannon.

You were convinced of collusion a year ago, and now you've got it all figured out. You're an idiot, and you aren't even useful.

Putin doesn't have to like trump to want to help get trump elected, he only has to hate america. He does whatever hurts america the most.

If charles manson ran against trump, he'd try to help charles manson. But when trump ran against clinton, he tried to help trump because everyone with a brain knew that would be worse for america.

And the more you say "no collusion" the dumber you look. Trump Jr's emails shows collusion was at least on the table.

Gotta love it when a dipstick like Trumplethinskin whose daddy sent his unruly ass to military school goes up against someone who actually did service to his country. No wonder Putin mops the floor up with his stupid ass.

Fear not, folks.

Our president has responded to Putin's threats with a blistering Twitter attack on Alec Baldwin.

If that doesn't scare the **** right out of ole Vladimir I'm not sure what will..

Putin nuked Florida in a video yesterday, the whole world saw it.

All donnie doll hands responded with was some tweets about Alec Baldwin that were filled with spelling errors.

What a frickin joke.

If you were honest, you would admit that you would be here criticizing any response, just like his lack of one.

Not me, I would have given him some praise for standing up to Putin over this specifically.

Something is far better than nothing. Trump's lack of response makes him, and by extension us, look weak.

Here's and idea, #29.

You should put together a list of things he responded to like an adult and then I will let you know how I feel about them.

Take your time and think.

I will wait..
