Reports: Russia wants 'Merchant of Death' in exchange for Brittney Griner


America: “Eh, that’s okay. You keep her”.

The Merchant of Death? Yikes. That doesn’t seem like a fair trade at all.

If she was my sister/brother I’m sure I would want all the stops pulled out to get them back. As a disinterested observer I have little sympathy for carrying drugs or drug residue across borders. It’s infantile thinking to not understand the inherent risks involved.

WNBA needs to go away anyway. It’s boring. Like watching bad high school basketball. I just injected sports into a political thread. Is that allowed? lol

Don't do it. We always get the shitty end of the deal and it only encourages Russia to continue this behavior.

The "behavior" is Griner's, not Russia. She broke the law, Russia didn't break the law for her.

This. She thought she'd enjoy the same white black, female, lesbian, athlete, privilege in Russia. Apparently the law in Russia applies to her like it would you or me. I'd bet she's surprised, but hasn't learned much from it.

Edited to add: I imagine the Russians take great pleasure in this. Especially as she's "American" albeit in name only.

I really wanted to believe this was satire. Some Duffel Bee shit or something, right? They want us to give them a war criminal in exchange for... a basketball player?

Yeah well, look who they're negotiating with. I wouldn't be surprised if we threw in the Brooklyn Bridge for free in that deal.

Viktor Bout..Maybe we could throw in some high level Russian spies to sweeten the deal. He is currently doing 25 years at USP Marion. Not a nice guy.
Reminds me of the trades we used to make as kids. Your bicycle for a my cool rusted knife.

Well, if you don't ask, you may not get. Apparently this guy was the inspiration for the Nicolas Cage's character in the movie God of War

Not only will Biden make the trade, he’ll invite her to the White House, heap praise on her, she’ll make all the propaganda shows, get commercial deals from Nike and Disney, and a book deal, suck it up a little longer fella, the pay day will be huge.

I was at a funeral and a woman w the WNBA was there. We talked about this "poor poor American Hating victim" and she had mentioned she was going to be part of a prisoner swap. I don't know how high up she is in the organization, but she brought it up, not me.

Remember the one asshole that was in the White House? You know the one who made the exchange of a few really bad terrorists for a fuckin Traitor?

Don't underestimate the power of stupid in this regime.

The pandering to the woke crowd will continue.

We'll see. That's a very serious thing, letting go of someone like like Bout. The Biden administration probably is that stupid, confused and biased with all their ridiculous "woke" bullshit, but swapping off someone like Bout is no small thing.
