You can check that Smug Superior American Attitude at the door.

I can remember as far back as kindergarten when people were scared to death because the Russians had launched the Sputnik satellite into space and the Americans had done nothing.

I will be the last person to denigrate Russian technology.


We were so far behind that Eisenhower sent Gary Powers in a U-2 spy plane to spy on the Russians to figure out what their technology was.

You're old enough to remember all this. Unless you have got a selective memory.

 

I don't have selective memory, it was the Soviet era.  Here's a story I've only heard about a couple of years ago.

 

The CIA's Bold Kidnapping of a Soviet Spacecraft.

Those Russian engines must be pretty good if WE are considering building them. :lol:
Excerpt..

US production of the RD-180

United Launch Alliance (ULA) announced in February 2015 that it is considering undertaking US production of the Russian RD-180 engine at the Decatur, Alabama, rocket stage manufacturing facility. The US-manufactured engines would be used only for government civil (NASA) or commercial launches, and would not be used for US military launches. This potential project is a backup plan to the new engine development work that ULA is undertaking with Blue Origin on the BE-4.

I've never been a big fan of Brian Williams. Something about him always seemed kind of phony.

But in reference to your comment, I remember very well when Trump dropped those bombs in Syria that Brian Williams just got absolutely wild with joy-- that's the way we would say it in the French translation but in English, I think you know what I mean.

You got it--kind of bizarre.

I never watched Williams, so I really didn't know that much about him.

Seemed like a good looking guy with not a whole lot upstairs, but who

knows. But his poetic paean to exploding projectiles just seems downright

weird. 


Curse Sir Walter Raleigh, he was such a stupid get.

One of the reporters on Washington Week thinks that Donny's

aggressive language has little to do with NK, but is just a

means to throw some red meat to the Trump faithful who

get a kick out of this kind of stuff. Sounds about right to me.

Remember when Russia was working to help the US, I guess we don't need them as friends anymore.  WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Russian authorities warned the FBI in 2011 about Tamerlan Tsarnaev, one of two Chechen brothers accused of carrying out last year's Boston Marathon bombings

Need footnote to clarify when 2 take Trump: 1. Literally; 2. Figuratively; 3. Seriously; 4. Sarcastically; 5. Humorously; 6. Just damn crazy
When I was in college, we used to call this a cop out.

As an adult today, I was just call it transparently stupid. But this guy gets a free pass all the time.

“I want to thank him because we're trying to cut down our payroll, and as far as I'm concerned I'm very thankful that he let go a large number of people because now we have a smaller payroll,” Trump said. “There's no real reason for them to go back. I greatly appreciate the fact that we've been able to cut our payroll of the United States. We're going to save a lot of money.”

 

Trump's answer was a tad tongue-in-cheek, but he gave no clear indication that he was joking or trying to be facetious in offering his gratitude to Putin....

It was noted on the news today the comment was sarcasm.

Russia expelling some US diplomats don't surprise me at all, are some naive to think Putin wasn't going to retaliate over the sanctions in some degree. :huh:
