    Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, has condemned Russia for the UK nerve agent attack.

    Theresa May’s argument makes sense. Either russia used a cold war nerve agent in UK soil to kill a UK citizen or it lost an incredibly dangerous nerve agent which correct me if I’m wrong, but they shouldn’t even have as per the geneva convention. Either way it seems like russia fucked up big time. You’d think the white house wanted to appear strong against russia considering the present circumstances. I don’t see how the russians could have any wiggle room to not be to blame

    It will be interesting how long they can keep this charade up.

    Come 4pm tomorrow, shit will start to get serious.

    You will have Britain and its European Allies formally accusing Russia of conducting a fucking CHEMICAL WEAPONS ATTACK on its soil and on its citizens.

    This isn’t something Trump can um and aw about, he will face questions and he will have to give a response.

    What will he say? He cant both sides this argument.

    This is his first real international crisis.
    Fascinating stuff.

    *”Right now, we are standing with our UK ally,” Sanders said. “I think they’re still working through even some of the details of that, and we’re going to continue to work with the UK.”*

    *May’s remarks accusing Russia came hours prior to the White House press conference.*

    *Sanders was then asked a third time about the UK government’s assessment, and said only: “We stand with our ally and we certainly fully support them, and are ready if we can be of any assistance to them.”*

    Remarkable how this administration is so hesitant to condemn Russia in any manner.

    I understand erring on the side of caution until all the evidence is in, but it seems like any other administration would at least acknowledge May’s account, instead of just being completely evasive about it.

    >I asked Putin twice whether he did it, and he said no twice…I believe him. Putin says I am an intelligent & strong leader and I believe that too. – Donald J. Trump

    What’s funny is for literally any other administration this would be the easiest question ever. Side with Russia? Or our closest allies ever?

    The White House et al does not speak for the Citizens of the United States. When we were attacked on 911, you and all of Europe and Canada (NATO) rushed to our side to support, protect, and defend us. We, the People of the United States will never, ever forget. You are our friends and allies and we STAND resolutely with you.

    To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.

    All of a sudden Americans want actual real proof about WMD’s before acting? How times have changed!

    Trump: “Daddy says he didn’t do it.”

    UK: “Wait what?!”

    Trump: “I said Putin didn’t do it.”

    At this point Trump should just post the pictures of him and Putin in bed together, no one would be surprised.

    A vile attack against supposedly the US’s greatest and closest ally and what do they do? They wring their hands and turn the other cheek. In fact ith statements like this, they are going as far as passively taking Russia’s side against their once again supposedly closest ally.

    It’s like they’re going out of their way to prove that they’re sticking their heads in the sand to everybody.

    We know Russia is balls deep in this administration. The rest of the world does too.

  16. SmirkyTrick March 14, 2018 / 7:17 pm

    I don’t know why, but I have the feeling that the reason for this is because Trump has some sort of connection with Putin. I know it must sounds crazy, but I’m just giving my 2 cents.

    Not mention in this article that a Police Officer who was first on the scene is fighting for his life.

    Why the fuck are we siding with Russia over long-standing US allies

  19. RebelBully March 14, 2018 / 7:17 pm

    Never thought id live to see the White House run by the Kremlin. Sad time to be an American.

    Am I the only one who thinks that this is way more than a message? I don’t believe that Russia would nerve gas an old spy they legitimately released on foreign soil to frighten other defectors, too risky. this is bigger, they’ve moved donny into a position where he cannot criticise putin and cannot support the uk, this is about divide and conquer. they sowed division in the us with the election, division in the UK with brexit and are now maneuvering the wedge to separate the two transatlantic brothers. Russia is dividing the west on nearly every front with some extremely clever tactics and all we are fixated on Is this washed up retired spy

    I don’t like to say bad things about my boss in public either.
