Does anyone else see the irony in that.
I mean it’s not like Russia spent 10 years fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan, losing thousands of troops, billions of dollars and major “face” in the process.
So now it is politically expedient for them to become their allies. Why? For the same reason that in spite of all of the sanctions, including more being called for, against North Korea, Russia is starting up a ferry service to the Rogue nation.
To spite the US.

Heck…….they might even start supporting this web page with donations just to put the icing on the cake!
