    You exposed your lack of knowledge when you incorrectly thought that one can just fly into Belarus unannounced. You snowballed from there.

    I said I'd fly to Europe and then make my way to Belarus overland. You seem to be forgetting lots of things. There's plenty of trains and roads from other European countries to Minsk and other smaller cities in Belarus. As I'm sure you're doubtlessly aware.

    Heck: even if you flew to Belarus, it's not as if they have the resources to track every foreigner in their country, even if they are cozy with Russia.

      Hardly, I’ve just had to operate in the country you chose... you’d have been better off saying you woulda tried a “Mathias Rust.”

      The Russians tracked him from start to finish. Your question asked how would one get to St Petersburg without them knowing. Guess your memory on both topics isn't quite as sharp as you like to believe.

      Which was exactly my point on your Belarus "plan." Guess you're not quite as sharp as you like to believe.

      You're either vastly overestimating Russian capabilities or moving the goalposts and changing the question: are they on the lookout for you or something?

      Because if not, they don't exactly track every person who goes in/out of every single country on their border (as ludicrous an assumption on your end as I've ever seen). Russia has the largest land borders in the world and borders the most countries. You really think they keep a tab on every person who flies in and out of Turkey or China? That's millions of people. Get real.

        Yeah but they shoot you for it there. They don't slap you on the back and give you welfare and a auto fraudo voter's reg.

          Just a brief Google search of "Illegal Immigration in Russia" proves this wrong. The Wiki entry on there cites up to 4M illegal immigrants in Russia (mostly from former Soviet states) and there's plenty of articles on the topic: tried pasting the links, but they auto-correct to an embedded media for some odd reason.

          A far cry from "shooting everyone they catch" and even further removed from Detroit's assertion that "Russia knows the precise travel movements of every single person within their country AND every foreigner who travels to their neighbors."

            That you can't seem to give credit where its due. It really isn't that hard. He did it when the other 4 Presidents failed. All 5 said they would do it, only 1 accomp[lished it.

            I am not sure why you can't grasp it - but thats cool bro, you go ahead and have the last word. Cuzz I'm done bringing you to the water. Go thirsty for all I care.

              I've given lots of credit to Trump and what he's been able to get done. Heck: I *support* him on this topic, as I've made clear.

              But it isn't a noteworthy accomplishment to be lauded or given plaudits for. His work with NATO is; his work in Asia (specifically against China) is; etc. Those are all vastly more significant in *changing* policy or by changing the geopolitical situation.

              Building an Embassy to keep a minor campaign promise is fundamentally different from keeping a far more impt promise to combat China's mercantilism. It's like celebrating the punter kicking the ball inside the 5 yard line on one punt and wanting to highlight that; as opposed to noting the defense gave up 150 yards and forced 3 turnovers.

              We listed those things... you fixated on the embassy as if it were the only item and wanting to highlight that; as opposed to acknowledging it as one of many

              Indeed. There's no law of diminishing returns on how stupid that sounds when repeated, either. Kudos.

                Because it isn't something to be put in the same category as the others. It's blind cheerleading for the sake of blind cheerleading. Focus on his other--more noteworthy and more significant--accomplishments.

                After rereading your post, I agree, you sound stupid.

                  After reading there's 4M illegal immigrants in Russia, my initial impression that you're too cowardly to admit you're wrong has been proven spectacularly accurate.
