WP: Trump does not notice the main thing - revenge from Putin


In his relationship with Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump does not notice the main thing - the revenge of the Russian leader to the United States for Afghanistan. This is written by the authors of the American publication The Washington Post.


Russians wish the United States evil in this Central Asian country. The generation of the current owner of the Kremlin harbors a grudge against the Americans for the forced withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan in 1989, which served as a prelude to the collapse of the USSR. During the nine years of a bloody war, the Soviets lost about 15 thousand troops there, while the United States lost only 2372 soldiers for a much longer stay in Afghanistan.

Thoughts about the Afghan war are also painful for the Russians because the balance was not in Moscow’s favor there began to fall with the appearance of the Stinger MANPADS from the Mujahideen - they were supplied by the CIA. Portable systems shot down helicopters and planes of the Soviet troops and caused the death of many Soviet soldiers.

In 2018, information began to appear that the Kremlin was helping the Taliban in their fight against the Americans. So, in March of that year, General John "Mick" Nicholson Jr. told the BBC correspondents about the help secretly provided to the Taliban from Moscow. Trump did not demand from Putin to stop helping the enemies of America, and the Russian authorities continued to do so.

The owner of the White House generally perceives his Russian counterpart in the "pink color", and the head of the Kremlin eagerly takes advantage of this. Perhaps for this reason, Trump was not informed of intelligence reports in early 2020 about the Moscow offer to Taliban militants of a generous reward for the killing of US troops in Afghanistan. Probably the presidential aides were afraid to upset him and preferred to remain silent. Meanwhile, Putin continues to take revenge, and Trump does not notice this.

Recall that Russia, the Taliban movement and even the Pentagon itself have denied the conspiracy of Moscow and the Taliban to kill the US military.

    Trump is wearing pink glasses, so he shouldn't be upset ...
    What a perfect nonsense, and given the refutation of the Pentagon, it’s just a lie.

      It does not suit the "Reporter" to spread the obvious ROT!

        How, then, do you know what the "honest" American media is doing? After all, many of us also need to take off their pink glasses, which is what the last paragraph of the article does. It is not in the original.
        So this Washington Post does not suit to create and spread lies.

    Nonsense. Why take revenge, 30 years after the collapse of the USSR? Another fake of American Satanists to drive a wedge between Washington and Moscow on the eve of US elections.

      It seems that there is no need to look for something behind the hill, that no "expert", then one ... If WP itself has sunk to this, then what can we say about the rest ???

      Here, too, I don’t see anything so terrible if I paid. On the contrary, I would be glad for those who finally have eggs in the industry, and who, on duty, had to charge them with such a return. Pacifism is not a topic here, I personally knew guys who did not come from there. There were normal boys, now I would have already nursed my grandchildren.

    An American judges people by himself, they are vicious and vengeful. They don’t understand that it’s possible not to take revenge.

    Or maybe it was the Democrats against Trump who muddied the killings to blame him?

    The Russian special services (at the direction of the Kremlin, of course) are trying to do everything possible so that the Americans and NATO troops remain in Afghanistan forever. Otherwise, the Taliban will regain power over the country and begin a "sly" creeping expansion to the north, to the republics of Central Asia of the former USSR. Entering the soft underbelly of Russia. And it will be horror, horror! Therefore, the organization of additional killings of Americans by the Taliban for the money of Moscow is completely logical, clear and understandable. You just can’t get caught.
