Obama's Russia Remarks at Final Presser Cement Legacy of Stupidity in Foreign Policy

"The Russians can't change us, or significantly weaken us. They are a smaller country, they are a weaker country, their economy doesn't produce anything that anyone wants to buy except oil and gas and arms. They don't innovate, but they can impact us if we lose track of who we are... They can impact us if we abandon our values. Mr. Putin can weaken us, just like he's trying to weaken Europe, if we start buying into notions that it's ok to intimidate the Press or lock up dissidents, or discriminate against people because of their faith or what they look like... And what I worry about, more than anything is the degree to which, because of the fearless of the bipartisan battle, you start to see certain folks in the republican party and republican voters, suddenly finding, a government and individuals who stand contrary to everything we stand for as being ok because that's how much we dislike democrats."

Commandos Without Borders: The US's Elite Troops Partner With African Forces But Pursue US Aims

Al-Qaeda doesn’t care about borders. Neither does the Islamic State or Boko Haram. Brigadier General Donald Bolduc thinks the same way.

“[T]errorists, criminals, and non-state actors aren’t bound by arbitrary borders,” the commander of Special Operations Command Africa (SOCAFRICA) told an interviewer early this fall. “That said, everything we do is not organized around recognizing traditional borders. In fact, our whole command philosophy is about enabling cross-border solutions, implementing multi-national, collective actions and empowering African partner nations to work across borders to solve problems using a regional approach.”

Why does the U.S. need Russian military digital cameras?

The U.S. State Department has unexpectedly softened sanctions against Russia’s state arms exporter in order to buy new military reconnaissance equipment. Russian observers say that Washington is showing a pragmatic approach. Washington apparently wants to know if the Russians have created a digital reconnaissance camera that is better than its U.S. equivalents and has made amendments to the sanctions list in order to purchase the Russian technology. The information on the introduction of technical changes to the list of sanctions against Russia appeared on the Federal Register site on Dec. 14, with a series of OSDCAM4060 sensors used for aerial surveillance and aerial photography removed from the list. As RBTH reported on Dec. 15, a Washington official explained the decision by saying that the purchase of the equipment "will enable the U.S. to assess Russia’s compliance with the Open Skies Treaty better"...
