    I'll bet you we did it when the Russians were in Afghanistan in 1980. Of course, they became experts with our RPG's when they fired at Russian gunship helicopters, APC's and the T55's.
    The Russians were smart to get out but we are there to make it our longest war. We should have got the hell out of that region decades ago.

    Trump has the attention span of an 8 year old. He doesn't read reports and he hardly listens to any reports either.

    He could do worse things and I expect him to do something worse. It's his shtick.

    I can't say it enough times, Trump is stupid. In fact, Trump is the king of the stupidest people. Now, before anyone gets in a twist, I'm not saying that all who support Trump are stupid but they really ought to reexamine themselves.

    The UV light has the same objective as drinking bleach. Not exactly high IQ activities.

    Intelligence that Russia was paying the Taliban to kill U.S. troops 'WAS in Donald Trump's daily brief,' official claims - as White House insist spies don't agree on whether it's true
    • White House said intelligence report that Russia offered to pay members of the Taliban to kill U.S. troops was not 'verified' and that is why Trump was not briefed
    • Kayleigh McEnany there was 'dissent' in the intel community over its accuracy
    • But source tells CNN that it was included in the Presidential Daily Brief, a printed compendium produced for the president
    • It is rare for intelligence to be presented as 100 per cent accurate with complete agreement among community, which is composed of 17 intelligence agencies
    • Trump has become notorious for not reading the brief, officials have said
    • The White House drew a distinction between him being actively briefed and it being included in the PDB
    • Speaker Nancy Pelosi is demanding the administration brief all House members
    • 'The questions that arise are: was the President briefed, and if not, why not, and why was Congress not briefed,' she wrote to CIA director and the DNI
    • Sen. Chuck Schumer wants similar briefing for all senators
    • Some lawmakers getting briefed at White House on Monday - all eight were Republican congressman
    • One revealed that the bounties might go as far back as 2014 or 2015

    It infuriates me that our country has to be world cop. We would bomb & waste foreign populations, occupy their land and maul their people. Then we send our military home dead or damaged. What the Russians did doesn't necessarily motivate the "indigenous enemy" as we had done our share of fucking over their countries. Nothing surprises me anymore about our country. Actually, I expect a daily fuck up. .
