    It's literally the exact same message copy and pasted. And all of the accounts were newly created just before posting it. Come on now.

      I'm technologically ignorant but even I know you can pay a second party to start a botnet over a VPN and make it look like it's coming from anywhere in the world on social media. Shit, you don't even need a VPN, you can just say you're in Virginia. Just like Russians in St Petersburg can say they're black Bernie Bro turned Trump supporters from Detroit.

      After that great big clusterfuck the last 3 years on twitter with bots, you're still letting yourself get mislead by suggestion sans evidence.

      And yeah, we broke a lot of eggs when we were fighting the Soviets. We had to. If you don't stop them in Afghanistan, they'll just go to Pakistan and from Pakistan into India. They came pretty close to succeeding in India as it was.

      The Soviets were never going to stop.

      Look up how many countries the Soviets started coups in. Both failed and successful. Then look at a map of the Eastern Bloc.

      And that doesn't even include all the failed communist coups.

      Your mistake is that you blame America for having to fight a dirty war that we didn't want a part of but we had no choice but to fight it anyway.

      If we were the bad guys we would have just nuked the Soviets and Red China when we had the chance.
      Keep smoking that neoliberal copium buddy. The CIA has a long history of doing unforgivable shit. The fact that Russia also did some bad shit really doesn't justify it. Especially since the madness didn't stop once the Soviet Union fell. Remember that the CIA deliberately lied for the Bush administration to justify invading Iraq. Believing that the CIA has done inexcusable shit isn't parroting RT. It's being able to pull back from the nationalist fervor in this country and critically examine our least accountable federal agencies. What are you going to tell me next? COINTELPRO was okay? MK Ultra was important to the intelligence community? Operation Northwoods was a good idea we should be concerned about the CIA having to begin with? Jesus Christ I've never met someone in the cannabis industry that was such a dedicated bootlicker.

          Next person getting claw boarded is going to be a new hire. We're making it our company hazing ritual.

I have a hard time watching a show about the CIA playing fuck fuck games in Venezuela is a bit of a pill to swallow when they just sponsored a christofacist coup in Bolivia where the government is now genociding the local indigenous population. All so we can get access to their oil and lithium.

              I have not yet started on Jack Ryan's Office, or is it Jim Halpert's CIA? I did blow through the US Office, over the summer, that was a fun revisit.

                And how stupid Ryan can be for a combat-vet ex-Marine...
                Nobody's perfect. I suggest you rewatch Apocalypse Now: Redux, and then read Jim Mattis' autobiography.

                In that order only.

                  I don't aspire to be either. I'd lose my shit if I had to wear a tie and work in a cube farm coming up with ways to overthrow small Latin American companies on behalf of the United Fruit Company.

                    Jack Ryan is just an analyst. Field personnel who doesn't want to be field personnel.

                        Neither did I.

                        I did get an interview, though.

                        Woohoo.

                          One of the things they assess for is mental and emotional stability.

                            They're very bad at it. They still rely on the polygraph, which is basically witchcraft.

                            You applied once, didn't you.

                              No because I meat absolutely none of the requirements. I know they definitely force you to disclose forum accounts and I'm confident that alone would disqualify both of us.

                                Na.

                                I got disqualified for sweating, my heart rate, and my breathing. AKA, what I did at the gym tonight.

                                I didn't have a social media presence either time I was interrogated.

                                Correction: I was never disqualified, but that's what it felt like at the time. I told them goodbye.
