Oh, yeah, I'm mostly thinking in the military/police apparatus and in the right wing political sphere. Goals would be more along the lines of complete sabotage than intelligence acquisition; Russian goals right now seem to be to cause the US to implode, leaving Russia and China as the only world superpowers while America Balkanizes and devolves into in-fighting. Literally the 50s-60s NATO Cold War strategy, but flipped around to target the US.

And yeah, you increase the surface area and someone's going to end up evaporating off and blowing the whole op. My feeling was that these people are not working together, or even towards the same goals necessarily, probably with totally disconnected handlers, most of whom don't necessarily work for the Russian state per se (oligarchs, etc). The risks remain, but the damage someone flaking can cause is greatly reduced.

But I trust your judgement on the matter more than my own, and if you say it seems like an American problem, I can accept that.

Yeah, the outsourcing of certain parts of the Russian intelligence appartus does certainly complicate matters, when it comes to attribution. Especially since some of them have their own complicated relationship with the Russian state.

Also it turns out Mike Flynn's brother was the one who turned down the Capitol Police

Jesus Christ.

This whole Jan 6th thing is looking more and more like actual planned insurrection.

I'm not a LAWNORDA type normally, but I kinda hope everyone involved goes the fuck down. Hard. Jailing all these major political figures for /literal attempted overthrow of the US/ will kind of fuck up their messaging, and maybe they'll have to pivot away from being the Nazi Party 2.0. Yes, yes, laugh all you want, I'm allowed to be optimistic once a month goddamnit.

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

Say it out loud with an absurdly strong southern accent.

Oh no. I'm not falling for that one again. Last time I evoked half of the Lesser Key and had a dickens of a time sorting everything out on a bus without getting arrested or any untoward agreements being made.

Since this is my default, I'm just confused as to why you momentarily stopped typing in that weird accent.
Formerly something else...

Wheel, ah rek'n 'at's a-coss ah en't from dan sath. Ah'm wunna 'ehm NORTHUN fokes.

(side note, I haven't figured out a good way to type out the softened "th" so I just omitted it which means this is like, one of the BAD British accents meets Alabama and I apologize to both Alabama and Britain for this)

You needn't worry about it causing any eldritch entanglements.

I mean, sure, you'll trigger every person of Chaotic alignment within earshot, and some of them might take a swing at you -- I clenched my teeth just reading it -- but you're not likely to summon anything from Outside.

Unless you mangle the pronunciation.

I'm not quite that far south. Tennessee, which is a little less Foghorn Leghorn. If you ever wanted to hear my specific dialect, just listen to Scott Baio's wife. I went to elementary school with her.

Also, "Zombie Farmer" on youtube. Those guys are everywhere around here, and they all drive the biggest white truck they can get their hands on.
