Schindler: "It's over except for the tears, the jail-time, and some mysterious deaths...

It's over except for the tears, the jail-time, and some mysterious deaths nobody will want to seriously investigate.



Wow. I wish I didn't believe you re: "mysterious deaths." I hope ppl - Dems and Repubs alike - put aside their goddamn partisanship for three days and investigate where they need to investigate.



When you Russify your country's politics at the top, you get the full package.

2. Sadly, the thought of mysterious deaths

has occurred to me. When you play with Russians, there can be dire consequences and they are really good at it.

9. Pat,

I have personal knowledge of only one Russian. He fought for US in Italy, WW2.

As for that diminutive oligarch with a big brain and judo belt, he is just another mafia crime boss.

12. I've known two Russian immigrants

One ran a shoe repair shop and the other cleaned houses. Very nice people, not exactly FSB types. I think Putin's thugs have resources and means that would surprise most of us. They seem to be able to move about the world rather easily.

15. In Phoenix?

I didn't know that. I can't think of any criminal enterprise that is more frightening and all that money makes them that much more lethal.

16. Real estate, drug dealing

and all things mafia related.. Please, no more details, horses' heads and such. The mafia is not dead in America. It has been re branded. The official word via Sheriff Joe is they are legitimate business people growing the economy.

"Legitimate business people growing the economy"??? Guess they got to Sheriff Joe!

20. Truly three out of four German soldiers died on the Eastern Front. The Red Army was a beast to

deal with despite their many problems with equipping men, etc. The fact that three out of four German men died on the Eastern Front is stunning ó and itís very sobering to think about what would have happened if Hitler hadnít ordered Operation Barbarossa and lost so many men in such devastating and costly (in every way) battles. Stalingrad was just unbelievable; the descriptions are like hell on earth.

Now Putin and his ilk are of a very different sort.

23. War is hell, then you have the Eastern Front.

Too few people understand how awful that situation was for everybody involved. I wonder how that perspective may have shaped the political culture of post-war Russia.

The history of Shostakovich's 7th Symphony says a lot.

11. Same here, and the Ruskies are very, very patient.

Their message toward defectors and dissent is effective, whether it takes 10 days or 10 years to kill.

Many people around the globe spend a lot of sleepless nights.......

14. Oh yes

It is the patience that is so unsettling. They play a long game and I'm sure that anyone who has crossed them, lives in constant fear, like trying to escape the Mafia, only much worse.

4. Nope

But then Putinís goal is havoc which Dumbass is quite capable of all on his own. No need to kill off anyone yet, havoc is still afoot.

22. What enrages me is that

tRump rages on about Mexican "rapists and thugs". How do his pals the Russians manage to emigrate, when many of them have underworld ties, and commit crimes before coming here? They come over here, join their comrades and form gangs that do despicable things, deal drugs, run prostitution rings, contract killings. Maybe we should restrict Russian immigrants, and let the Mexicans come in?

10. These inside Intelligence people have been consistent about this for a good 18 months

I'm still thinking they had it pegged all along and the Trump presidency was their chosen method of casting the widest net

but it's still unclear how the cleansing is going to occur

Obama did tell us the election interference would be answered at a 'time and place of our choosing'.

17. I just read an article that fits in with what took place here on Social Media

And it was fed and helped along by Russian bots.

I would like comments. From a former Republican.

if we get to the other side. I expect arrests, I expect killings, I expect it'll get much worse.
