It's Always Russia! Russia! Russia! Russia!

So, the latest shit-for-brains conspiracy theory that many of you have swallowed is that Vladimir Putin was paying bounties to Taliban fighters in Afghanistan to kill US troops. And, supposedly, Putin's gay butt-boy lover (in the homophobic parlance of our times) Donald Trump knew all about it but didn't do anything about it because, ... I don't know, ... maybe he hates America or he likes the taste of Putin's jism or something.

Let's break this idiocy down: Vladimir Putin, dealing with US sanctions, plummeting oil revenues, a costly war in Syria, and all sorts of other enormous pressures on his inarguably weak position, thought it a good use of his time and resources to get involved with having the Taliban kill low-level US troops in Afghanistan.


I mean, sure, the Taliban has been shooting at their US-American occupiers for almost twenty years now, but supposedly they needed Moscow's money to get them to continue? Or is it kind of like how people like me THINK that Black US-Americans are angry about racist police brutality all on their own, but "Resistance" (tm.) fighters like Hillary Clinton and James Carville know that all this "Black Lives Matter" activism is really just the result of Vladimir Putin's sociopathic, evil desire to create divisions in US-American society (divisions that wouldn't otherwise exist) through Facebook ads and online memes and giphies. So, the only reason that the Taliban is shooting at US occupiers of their country is because Putin is getting them to do so.

Vlad did a cost-benefit analysis you see and decided that the likely catastrophic diplomatic fall-out from being implicated in the deaths of US-troops in Afghanistan was totally worth it, because, ... because, ... um, .... because .... Let me get back to you on that one.

Anyhooo, so, supposedly Donald Trump was informed about this totally not-fake program of bounties for US soldiers' scalps in Afghanistan and he did nothing about it.  I'm going to go out on a limb here and speculate that if Donald Trump was genuinely told anything that it was a bullshit story with zero evidence (which is where we all are now) that he rightly disregarded; or that it was put into a briefing package that he didn't read (because he's got a lazy brain and doesn't like to read) and that nobody referred to it explicitly and out-loud.

Anti-Russian hysteria is so easy to sell to all of you gullible saps. Even after you've been had you continue to cling to the lies that you were told. Even after "Russiagate" was PROVEN to be nothing but lies and stupidity, you insanely believe that Putin installed Trump in the White House, with the able assistance of Julian Assange, and that Trump has been selling out the interests of the United States of America to Russia ever since.

The oligarchy, the Military-Industrial-Complex, the bullshit foreign-policy "think-tanks," ... they all dine-out on selling anti-Russian xenophobia to you gullible fools.
In its ongoing slow-motion third world war against nations which refuse to be absorbed into the blob of the US power alliance, this tight empire-like cluster of allies stands everything to gain by doing whatever it takes to undermine and sabotage Russia in an attempt to shove it off the world stage and eliminate the role it plays in opposing that war. Advancing as many narratives as possible about Russia doing nefarious things on the world stage manufactures consent for international collaboration toward that end in the form of economic warfare, proxy conflicts, NATO expansionism and other measures, as well as facilitating a new arms race by killing the last of the US-Russia nuclear treaties and ensuring a continued imperial military presence in Afghanistan.

Even though Trump has actually been very bellicose to Russia, and has torn-up arms-control treaties and has sanctioned them and they work at cross-purposes in Syria, in Venezuela, in the Ukraine, in Poland, etc., ... Trump is the "bottom" to Putin's "top" and he just can't help offering himself up to that semi-Asiatic stud.

Don't you ever get a twinge of embarrassment whenever the obvious insanity of your delusions occasionally bursts into your consciousness? As it inevitably must since most of you aren't genuinely mentally ill. You just have allowed yourselves to be manipulated and deceived.
