US President Biden calls Putin a "murderous dictator, pure thug"

Source: CNN

US President Joe Biden called Russian President Vladimir Putin a "pure thug" while speaking at a St. Patrick's Day event Thursday.

At the annual Friends of Ireland Luncheon on Capitol Hill, Biden said Putin is a “murderous dictator, a pure thug who is waging an immoral war against the people of Ukraine.”

Biden also said Ireland has “stepped up” in the face of Russian aggression against Ukraine. He said the relationship between Ireland and the United States was “taking on an even more intense and cooperative forum than it ever has because of Ireland's neutrality.”

Is everyone stocked up on Guinness, Jameson, and Irish Mist and Baileys?

I'm not Irish, but I love how the Irish and Irish-Americans party.

And I'm missing an Irish-American friend who used to throw the best St. Patrick's Day parties...and then ask his friends later if they were there.

Oliver Stone has found a new home for his pro-Kremlin propaganda

OANN just announced they'll be airing Stone's "Ukraine On Fire" tomorrow night.

Shame that Russian- and RW-propaganda network won't be dropped by DirecTV till next month.

YouTube has flagged the documentary, so of course the RWNJs at Rumble welcomed it.

Wondering how long till we see Stone as a regular contributor for OANN and Newsmax and Fox News...

Btw, do NOT confuse Stone's pathetic excuse for a documentary with the excellent 2015 documentary "Winter On Fire," which is on Netflix, and which has been nominated for, and won, awards.


Stone's documentary was a year later and possibly has a title chosen to cause confusion.

"Winter On Fire" -- which I hope everyone will see -- is now available FREE on YouTube, thanks to Netflix:

And Now Russia Is Threatening Bosnia and Herzegovina Over NATO, Too

Source: The Daily Beast

Russia is now threatening to repeat the aggression it unleashed against Ukraine in Bosnia and Herzegovina if the country joins NATO. In comments made to the broadcaster FTV on Thursday, Russian Ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina Igor Kalbukhov claimed the country could do as it wishes in regards to the alliance—but warned that Moscow would respond. “If [Bosnia and Herzegovina] decides to be a member of any alliance, that is an internal matter. Our response is a different matter. Ukraine’s example shows what we expect. Should there be any threat, we will respond,” he said in comments carried by Euractiv. ...

Euractiv story and an excerpt from it:


According to Kalabukhov, the West is posing a threat to Bosnia and Herzegovina’s security by claiming that Russia “is allegedly preparing a plan.”

“We do not have any plans. We will respond having analysed the strategic and geopolitical situation,” the ambassador said. NATO membership is not a reality for BiH given the current lack of consensus on the matter in the country, he added.
