    Russia Secretly Offered Afghan Militants Bounties to Kill U.S. Troops, Intelligence Says https://nyti.ms/3i2hvwS

    American intelligence officials have concluded that a Russian military intelligence unit secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants for killing coalition forces in Afghanistan — including targeting American troops — amid the peace talks to end the long-running war there, according to officials briefed on the matter.

    The United States concluded months ago that the Russian unit, which has been linked to assassination attempts and other covert operations in Europe intended to destabilize the West or take revenge on turncoats, had covertly offered rewards for successful attacks last year.

    This is sick ****. Stealing elections, murdering us servicemen. Mass death. Economic collapse.

    Are you tired of all the winning?

    So now Trump is supposed to step in between Russian and Taliban dealings - sheesh, he's supposed to be everywhere at all times, solving all possible problems! Meanwhile the Biden family is still shamelessly milking Ukrainan politicians/companies for money... An actual crime.

    This thread is a joke.

    Not "now" - he was supposed to start doing this in January 2017. In fact he swore to do this.

    Instead, you let that bitch do what he done

    Shame

    Clearly fake news. We know that the POTUS trusts Russian intel but not American. Next.

    Trump probably called Putin to congratulate him on this.

    Kneeling BAD.

    Bounties to kill US troops? ..... hmmm Let me talk to Putin about it.

    On a serious note I cannot fathom how any military or ex military can vote for Trump... from his chickening out of Nam... to his calling a captured soldier a loser... to so many ex well respected military generals calling Trump a monster... and now just ignoring bounties on US soldiers.

    This is American foreign policy without the Deep State behind the curtain, folks.

    The American people slept on our hegemon while "our betters" ran and fixed things.

    Tbh, i don't want to care about every single damn thing around the world, so Nero it is...

    So here's the next logical question... did the republican-led senate intelligence committee also know about this... and if yes, for how long? We may not only need to question trump's loyalty, but also republicans in the senate.

    If our President wasn't bought and paid for by Russia it would be fairly easy to, say, find out where this Russian intel unit lays their head at night and then, say, drop a jdam or tomahawk in their living room.
