The Russians Cheat at Everything

The Olympics are a time for nations to shed power politics and engage in the wholesome competition of sports to showcase the brotherhood of Man. Well, there's always an exception.

Our friends the "reset" Russians:

A new report reveals that Russia has been systematically concealing positive drug tests since 2011, confirming what The New York Times once called "one of the most elaborate – and successful – doping ploys in sports history."

Now, with less than three weeks until the start of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, officials must decide whether to let Russian athletes participate.

Let's see if Putin employs the "Hillary Defense" by arguing he was unaware his team was violating laws and so the team can't be sanctioned.

But no problem, Putin can be totally trusted on Syria, Ukraine, Baltic security, or START provisions.

UPDATE: Lovely little base you have there. It would be a shame if anything bad happened to it:

Russian warplanes reportedly bombed a secret military base in Syria used by elite American and British forces last month.

The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that the Russian strike on the CIA-linked site was part of a campaign by Russia to pressure the White House to agree to closer cooperation in the Syrian skies, U.S. military and intelligence officials said.

I don't think we should cooperate with the Russians.

Our "reset" friends, the Russians, can't be trusted.

UPDATE: Oddly, Blogger stats show quite a surge of hits from Russia the last week or so. I assume these are spamming efforts.

UPDATE: Russian elites increasingly aggressive, militaristic, and anti-American. Reset!
