Hey guys, remember the other day when Comrade Prznint said, “The reason Russia was in Afghanistan was because terrorists were going into Russia,” Trump said. “They were right to be there. The problem is it was a tough fight.”
Oddly, the Republicans have been silent as Stupid disparages St. Ronnie’s signature war.
It seems that Afghanistan didn’t like that much!
“Afghan President Ashraf Ghani issued a statement saying that dozens of countries had denounced the invasion and that Afghans fought “to liberate their holy land.”
“Adding that “all U.S. presidents since” had supported the Afghan resistance that drove out Soviet forces, Ghani said his government had “urged clarification through diplomatic sources from our ally the United States.”
Good luck with that, buddy. Expect Putin’s puppet to counter-punch soon, in the most diplomatic way possible, of course.
At Crooks and Liars, there’s an essential background post up that kinda gives us a clue as to how the Russian Usurper came up with the talking point of terrorism. Spoiler Alert: Putin.
