    Right. Trump has never told a lie. (not)

    MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia denied on Friday that one of its navy vessels had come dangerously close to a U.S. Navy destroyer in the North Arabian Sea the previous day, Russian news agencies cited a statement by the Russian Ministry of Defence as saying.

    The U.S. Navy’s Bahrain-based Fifth Fleet said on Friday that a Russian ship had “aggressively approached” U.S. destroyer USS Farragut, which had then sounded five short blasts and requested the Russian ship alter course.
    ================================================== ====
    From the U.S. ship's video footage of the incident, it's not possible to tell who is right in this affair. It could be either version.
    mongols saw a huge value in successful lie skill

    Karl Marx : "The bloody mire of Mongolian slavery, not the rude glory of the Norman epoch, forms the cradle of Muscovy, and modern "Russia" is but a metamorphosis of Muscovy."

    That could be the case if one of the 2 countries was not Russia. If it was a ship between the UK and the US or any Nato ally/friendly navy vessel I possibly would listen to the other side, now that it is Russia I do not trust their explanation for one single second.
    I commend Iran for at least being honest about the downing of the airplane, Russia still remains the same old lying rogue state. MH17 Will never be forgotten!!!!

    Wasn't even close. True, a Russian sailor tried to bum an American cigarette from one of our sailors, but it's a damn lie that he asked for a light, too. Not even close.

    The Russians did the exact same thing in June of 2019.

    Shocking photos show Russian destroyer playing a dangerous game of chicken with a US warship


    It is extremely difficult to get a GOP Senator to accept something when their salary depends upon not accepting it.

    Simple rule: Nothing's true until Russia denies it.

    For days I thought they'd actually sent an advisor to Tehran.
