    Remember, according to QAnon Trump is secretly operating playing a game of 4D chess, it just looks like he's an impulsive and narcissistic idiot.

    Russia doesn't have a choice.

    if the US collapses into civil war, Russia and China cannot sit out of the conflict because the US has a gazillion nukes. The US could balkanize into 5 banana republics, each run by some tinpot dictator ready to fire off a slew a nukes at the rest of the world because they had a bad day. Russia and China absolutely must invade the US to restore order to prevent that. Russia and China also know that Europe will reject the idea of Russia and China invading the US. So that means Russia has to invade Europe as well to shut them up.

    So we have a situation where the US is on the brink of civil war and Russia is massing a huge army on the border of Ukraine ready to blitz Europe.

    How are they going to investigate without subpoenas? Trump achieves legal protection when he finishes this appointment.

    Pst, so does Russia.

    Skroe's posts about the awful state of Russia's nuclear and military arsenal and its utter unpreparedness for an actual stand up conflict with any other developed nation haven't changed just because he got banned. Lol.

    Again, it's very evident from the Republican posts in this thread that their view of the world is not reflective of reality and in fact appears to be a McCarthyist caricature wherein commies are hiding behind every corner and Russia is just one invasion away rather than the real world in which the planet is on fire and our biggest domestic threats are in fact a) capitalists, and b) white supremacists.

    Neither can invade the US, even without the US Navy standing in their way.

    They can’t afford to pay their nuclear scientists. The fear of terrorist getting their hands on nukes, is almost always based around Russian workers having access and no money.

    Edit: There is the Moscow Russia that you see on TV that looks like everywhere else... and then there is Russia that blows up pipe lines, because remote villages that it runs through, get jobs when people come to fix it.

    Russia still at least 1000 warheads they can deliver, so the meet MAD, but they would be unwilling to use them against Europe offensively as they are what keeps China at bay.

    Not in the current situation. But if the US collapses into civil war, Russia will immediately enter a pact with Trump and support his faction. China will probably be signing a pact with the Trump faction shortly thereafter. No one is coming to help the democrats. This is like WoW where 3-4 cosmic forces dogpile on the Void. Everyone is dogpiling on the left.

    There is no way Trump loses a civil war. A good chunk of the US military will back Trump. Trump will merge that with Russian forces and then Chinese forces.

    Trump goes out, Biden comes in, new Attorney General, investigates Trump and his ties to Russia and McConnell's with how they funneled money to his PAC through the NRA and to his state when they lifted sanctions. Then they take him to court with an ironclad case.

    He doesn't get legal protection in that sense and if they actually ruled in that fashion, then things are going to get very violent in this nation and they know it.
    Since we can't call out Trolls and Bad Faith posters and the Ignore function doesn't actually ignore it. Add
    "mmo-champion.com##li.postbitignored"
    to your ublock or adblock filter to actually ignore ignored posters. Now just need a way to ignore responses to them as well.

    So they claim. They also claimed the Skripals got sick off window poisoning...sorry, food window... Chicken poisoning? Whatever their latest nonsense is.

    What the why? Why would they do this? Why wouldn’t they stay out and make a fortune and become the dominant force in the world, rebuilding the mess your civil war created. You know... someone is going to need to rebuild factories, ports, airports and the entire economy... Why would China not be that country?

    If US falls to civil war, both Russian and China win, by simply pointing and laughing.
