Sorry but your attempt at deception (Plain magic) brings about a...‘Suspension of disbelief’ shall we say.
A few (but only a handful) of posters purposely push the ‘suspension of disbelief’ to the limit. Your commentary history is a good example; where you expect readers to find your improbable presumptions & suppositions plausible and especially - nonpartisan. They are anything but plausible; they are anything but nonpartisan and they anything but the PlainTruth.
But I digress....
Re-read the second and third lines of my 2:28 post. Mmm K big fella.
I think we've beat this dead horse Plainly enough. Boing!
”When did I say it was?” What?!?!
You didn’t – specifically. But you are attempting to dance around your tacit (if not implicit then veiled) implication that the west (Plainny code for Obama) ’lost the Crimea.”
Plleeeze. I try not to suffer fools; but honestly, you push the boundaries of Credulity
It's none of our business Plainny.
There see - an answer. Simple.
I don't seriously hate opposing opinions. It's just that you have NO OPINION and proceed to spew invective and criticism as a substitute for reasoned debate.
It's as if when asked to build a drag strip, you construct a moto cross track and accuse the drag racers of being motorcycle haters.
"US taxpayer money sent to Ukraine will go to bail out the international bankers who have made (bad) loans to Ukraine."
Yup. Yeeaaa boyeee. Like I said, the banking cartels & multinationals ain't gonna take a hit.
Good post Nucanuck. Maybe that's what Plainny meant..Nah.
Plainny, ”I do?”. Yes you do. ”don't recall that.” I know you don’t recall; that’s your modus operandi, and there are plenty within this forum that would agree me on that count.
That’s ok if don’t have or wish to speculate an answer. Just don’t play so fast and loose with, ”just a fact,” before jumping to unsupported supposition/conclusions.
I disagree with your assumption re. PlainTruth. If that were so, he would have said so.
I understand what you’re driving at though. And you may be right. But, understand that the Crimea has been a semi-autonomous part of Russia for centuries. It's not like the invasion of Iraq.
No PlainTruth I'm not quibbling. You keep contending the Crimea is lost. Lost to Whom? You seem to be hinting it is WE that lost something.
Although the Crimea has had a tempestuous history, it has remained a semi-autonomous part of Russia for centuries.
So - I ask again. Who lost what to the ‘rooskies’?
There is the remote possibility of a fracturing of the Ukraine (but I doubt it), the Russians however will NEVER give up the Crimea and their access to the Black Sea.
"The Crimea is lost." Lost? Lost to whom?
