Clinton Ally Begala: We Should "Debate Whether We Should Blow Up" Russia

Via The Daily Beast,

Long-time Clinton family ally Paul Begala on Wednesday evening seemingly suggested President Trump should consider bombing Russia in response to the Kremlin’s meddling in the 2016 election.

Speaking with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, the former adviser to Bill Clinton lamented how Trump supporters don’t seem particularly outraged about Russia’s meddling in American affairs.

“We were and are under attack by a hostile foreign power,” he said,


“and... we should be debating how many sanctions we should place on Russia or whether we should blow up the KGB, GSU, or GRU [Russia’s foreign intelligence agency].”


He continued: “If I was Trump, I would be mad because it has tainted his victory.”

Just what do you reckon the Russians are thinking when they hear these luns ?A sucker punch is the normal reaction between people.Are they trying to provoke a preemptive strike.Lavrov's comments on Russia cleaning up the international paedos running the west,if Trump didn't do  it,don't seem to have gotten any airtime in the MSM, but the hysteria its provoking is obvious.

Stackers, per your comment associating wars with progressives:

  • WW-I - Progressive - Wilson
  • WW-II - Progressive - Roosevelt
  • Korea - Progressive - Truman
  • Vietnam - Progressive - Johnson

You left out Iraq - Conservative - Bush IIBut I do get your point, and it was Nixon who got us out of Vietnam. Plus, Hitlery was instigating war all over the Middle East literally stirring up a hornet's nest under Obama.I hate all the neocons who want to perpetuate war in order for the military complex to benefit. They have now created the ultimate bogeyman in ISIS, who can essentially never be defeated, which is a neocon's wet dream.  Evil, thinly cloaked by the laughable premise of delivering 'democracy and freedom'.

Drop the blue pill and swallow the red one. The whole history of the US has been a history of theft, treachery, war, and tearing down treaties from the start : Indian wars, then french and indian wars, american revolution war (which was most of all a rebellion against the obstacles that Britain had decided to impose on the 13 colonies territorial expansion at the expense of indians), mexican wars, spanish war, ... etc

The US is just keeping on doing what it has always done, on a bigger scale since WW2.

And by the way, Hitler admired the US. His political program of conquering a lebensraum for the german race at the expense of the slavs was a copycat of the anglo-saxon territorial expansion at the expense of the amerindians.

That guy looks like a creepy, overgrown fetus. It amuses and scares me that in this day and age people talk so nonchallantly about bombing Russia, as though they are no different than backwater nations like Afghanistan or Iraq and incapable of retaliating in kind. Like we can just drop a few bombs on them and call it good, and think the Russians will just meekly submit to our rightous punishment. They also seem to forget our ongoing abysmal failure to subdue a bunch of dirt farmers living in caves in the Afghan mountains. Its madness.

Jews still go on pilgrimages and vacation in Ukraine, Belarus and Poland, searching out the areas where their tribe formerly infested.In some of these they must have been quite predominant. For example in Belarus there is a town called Zydkowicze. The word Zyd means Jew in many Slavic languages (Polish, Ukrainian, Czech, Slovakian). Given that this territory was part of Poland before being taken by Russia,  it makes sense that this was a Jewish town.The name of the town would be equivalent to Jewville in English. By the way I heard from a Ukrainian that hasidic Jews go to some place in Ukraine where they get completely wasted and fuck any and every prostitute in the area.

I have friends who travel the world and they get an earful overseas. The folks there think that MSM has damaged our image severely. Many, much to the chagrin of my friends who are liberal in thinking but successful in life, are a bit taken back when asked about (and they do ask), what they think about the sorry state of affairs here. Many ask my friends is they support Trump. They have a hard time answering and the local residents tell them they like Trump. This entails a good lot of Europe and they stay 6+ weeks there every year.

You can take my above statement to the bank.


Any other expats or travelers are free to weigh in on this...

Most of what you say is what I've heard too.  But, on the other hand, can you really damage the reputation of a whore?Once the EU and the UKs culturally-enriched wives cut them off or begin to gender-identify as interdiagonal females, these slack-jawed braggarts will be banging on our door furiously with their money in hand begging the US for whatever favors they can get. It doesn't matter that the shit pile is about to fall over.  What matters most is that we are still on top of that shitpile.Hedge accordingly, I suppose.
