Comment Re:Politicians siding with big business? Naw. (Score 1) 265

If you side with the people instead of the businesses the media companies the businesses own call you a racist sexist islamophobe homophobe xenophobe and pay a bunch of whores to say you traumatized them with a kiss.

Do the what the businesses want and fuck you can do whatever you want. Threaten your husband's rape victims and they'll call you a champion for women, and steal money from Haitian reconstruction and they'll call you an advocate for the poor.

I'm not saying the leaks aren't from Russia. The leaks could be from:

1. Russian government.

2. Non-state Russian hackers.

3. Disgruntled DNC staffer/IT guy.

4. The NSA.

It could be any one or all of these. They could have been hacked by Putin for general spying/blackmailing purposes, but then also leaked by a staffer. We don't actually know.

So I'm not the one jumping to conclusions here. You're the one blindly believing the government, which has a long, long history of lying about foreign attacks in order to justify war. You have your pre-formed doctrine ("Dems r gud guys dey wuldnt lie!!!11!") and will not look at the evidence and speculate about what it means, since then you'd have to wonder if you're Obama and Hillary's dupe.

They lied to get us into Vietnam (the Gulf of Tonkin incident never happened). They lied to get us into Iraq. They're probably lying about this, too.

Do you understand the difference between shooting down an aircraft that continues to threaten your ships after warnings for them to stop, and creating a policy of deliberately seeking out their planes to shoot down, over territory to which you have no claim, in pursuit of a strategic goal?

Are you seriously trying to make the claim that Trump is more likely to start a war than Hillary?

Trump has said repeatedly that he wants to get along with Russia, and either leave them alone and let them bomb ISIS or join them in bombing ISIS. He would leave Assad (a bad dude, but better than Islamic terrorists) in place. Hillary has said removing Assad would be her number 1 priority and she would establish a no-fly zone in Syria. The only people flying in Syria are the Russians bombing ISIS.

I don't think it's possible to make a reasonable case that Trump, who's so friendly with Putin the left accuses him of being a Putin plant, is more likely to get the US into a war with Russia than Hillary, who is openly hostile to Putin and whose state department has a long history of working counter to Russian interests.

Which is why Russia is invading Ukraine and supporting terrorists when Ukraine wanted to go their own way and have closer trade relations with the West, right? Because the sovereign nation of Ukraine didn't want to live under the thumb of Russia any longer.

But the Euromaidan protests were sponsored by western governments and NGOs. Ukraine wanted to go their own way and have closer trade relations with Russia rather than the crumbling EU and the west said "fuck your shit" and ousted their elected government with violent protests they sponsored. Yes, Russia and the west are fighting over Ukraine but you can't act like Russia started it.
