VERY odd announcement in the middle of all of this. This group they took down in Russia on the US request is the huge hacker group responsible for the recent widespread ransomware attacks on US business.


I wonder if the US made a deal with Russia? Take down your own funded hacker group targeting our businesses with Ransomware in the US and we look the other way while you invade Ukraine ???

This is what happens when the World's main superpower has disunity, can't ties it's own shoelaces, has a cognitive degenerate as POTUS and an arrogant narcissist as it's previous POTUS (causing the dis-unity). Man we need a Reagan...or at least a GWB..or even an Obama with less socialism. Both parties suck right now, neither has any moral high ground nor standing with the American people who are decent... good...bright...light...friendly...caring... and above all, honorable...yet we continue to elect buffoons' who are none of those things. We need a correction...especially in the area of foreign policy...either lead or lose what you gained after WWII...this is where we stand at this post Afghanistan crossroads.

That would revel the lack of moral fiber in our government right now even more than I thought...I hope you are wrong.

What a deal, stop the ransomware and we will let you invade a country we have been supporting as a free and democratic state and people will die....

I know.

But what would bring us to such a speculations from this administration?
This Admin? Didn't even think about the Admin...just Washington in General. We have been playing these stupid games with Russia since the end of WWII. Washington and Moscow have been doing this for 80 years now. You shouldn't think about any one particular Admin at all when this kind of thing happens with Russia. It is business as usual via the Industrial Military Complex both countries created after WWII

Or Russia could have done it on their own in hopes that it is good leverage to convince US to stay out of the Ukrainian dispute. Wouldn't actually require a "deal" being made up front.

So US Presidents for 80 years have been making deals with Russia to benefit themselves politically?
