This will be the third or fourth time I have asked this question on this thread, but here goes, once again.

We are already in a war there.

We are not at war with Russia (Well, not directly, exactly)

What would you have the POTUS do, even assuming the information about GRU offering bounties on US Soldiers is correct?

What action is called for?

A strongly worded letter?

Unfriending on bookface?

Drone strikes on the Kremlin?

A full on strategic nuclear response?

Round up our Democrats and protesters and send them over there?

I mean, exactly what level of punishment would you recommend?

How about if Trump loses his mancrush on Putin? He could follow that with targeted trade sanctions against Russia.

Hell, I'm just spitballing here.

Why are we arguing about something we don't even know happened again?

   It's certainly plausible to me that Putin's GRU would be putting bounties on American Serviceman in Afghanistan, did we not pay the Northern Alliance to kill Russians there in the 80's?

This might be an option worth considering
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

@Smokin Joe I am just a smacked rump on a message board. I don't know the range of options available to the Commander-in-Chief.
But if I wouldn't have an attitude of effete, flip resignation if Obama did nothing, why should I have different standards for Trump?

I tell you what I wouldn't do.
Advocate, inexplicably, for Russia to be re-admitted into the G-7.
Offer them respirators to protect their citizens.
Take this moment to reduce troops in Germany.

I am fascinated why people don't have an issue with a sitting POTUS bending over and "presenting for Putin." An ex-KGB common thug who leads a regional power. That Helsinki abomination was a shock to the system. Trump doesn't defer to a single soul on this planet, except Putin. Why?

Yeah. He should have nuked Moscow.

What would you have proposed he do?

Ain't it funny... how it's always the anti-Trumpers that make statements like that.  Always sooo willing to believe that Trump is lying about yet another example of the excrement being thrown on the wall by the left ... hoping enough of it sticks ...just enough for him to lose the election.

Just more ssdd BS from the usual suspects, IMO.

Man crush!? Do your homework. Trump’s foreign policy has been tough on Russia together with appropriate inducements for cooperation where it benefits the United States.

But perhaps Trump will have more flexibility after the election /s

For you people who don’t care much for Trump but have declared you will vote for him, I have a question for you. When will you get tired of having your emotions yanked around by yet another anonymous NYT story and Nancy Pelosi and the democrats and republican NeverTrumpers playing politics with it?

Your only reaction after one of these phony attacks should be to say NO SALE—instead of running around wringing your hands repeating “But, if true, if true, if true...”

It’s a phony scandal, yet again. Buck up, we have an election to win in 129 days or the Marxists win.

Seriously? The first thing I do when I see something that smells like a hit piece is to check and see where it came from. WaPo and NYT both reek of swamp mud and BS. The burden of proof ever lies with the accuser, and "sources say" isn't enough. For all I know, they push polled some junkie on the steps.

I see they’re suddenly disinterested tonight.

You’d think they’d want to express relief that their president is innocent on this one.

Not to worry.   They will!!!

I just want to see their ugly faces tear up on the night of November 3....when Trump is re-elected.  I really "need" that schadenfreude.  In fact, I could use it right now... but nah...I'll wait.  Anticipation (as the song goes).   happy77

Based on comments on TBR tonight you would have thought that this has all been proven false.  And no further explanation necessary.  Not so.

PRESS RELEASEJeff Van Drew Consistently Voted Against Trump on Immigration While in Congress

Van Drew received an average grade of 35% based on a series of votes and positions. For example, Van Drew co-sponsored and voted for amnesty legislation, voted for increased visas for foreign workers, and opposed President Trump’s border wall.
Van Drew’s grade of D+ follows a long list of other liberal grades and endorsements. For example, Van Drew received a 100% rating from Planned Parenthood and is currently endorsed by the radical anti-jobs lobby, the Sierra Club.

Rubio nailed it (for once) --

“It is important to be cautious on intelligence writ large, because when it’s proven to not be accurate, it can lead to things like a war or other measures that proved to be counterproductive,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), the acting chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, told reporters. “You pull out one little piece and you put it in the public domain and you act like it was some smoking gun situation. So that’s one of the reasons I just don’t comment on reports such as these.”
I Believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution, to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.

Flynn had a routine phone conversation with Kislyak, and Trump called President Zelensky to urge sharing of intelligence—a “perfect” call. Yet, democrats tried to destroy them.

They will stop at nothing these democrats, including using dead soldiers as props to attack Trump, the Commander in Chief, using a security briefing as their hook. Again, they will not succeed. But these truly are very evil and dangerous people and must be defeated in November.

Bottom line... if there was a "bounty" on US soldiers in Afghanistan.... it sure as hell must not be much or enough $$$... since there have only been eight friggin US military deaths so far there.  Last year only 24.  Just more fake bullsquat from the lying idiot left and their stuckonstupid minions.
