That's great. It puts us squarely aligned with, and teamed with Iran. Oh, wait.......

Since Gorkie is sleeping:

House Passes Intelligence Bill Enhancing Efforts Against Russia

This part is definitely the r-word though:
Another provision of the bill limits the travel of Russian diplomatic personnel in the U.S. to a maximum of 25 miles from their official posts unless the FBI certifies to Congress that it didn't find evidence of wrongdoing by those individuals.

Not looking too good for the Turdnugget Twins.

The CIA concluded that Russia worked to elect Trump. Republicans now face an impossible choice.

This comment makes a lot of sense.

"The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes," Trump tweeted late Thursday morning.

The relations?

I'd say they are approaching a tipping point, personally.

With Aleppo returned to Syrian control, thanks in strong part to Russian intervention, a massive dent in US plans to "remaster" the ME has meant a total rethink...as well as a McCarthyite mentality sweeping the nation(Hi

gorkie... ). This is something the US hadn't counted on; Assad remaining in power rather than a US stooge in his place. And all because of Russia!

Prodding the bear repeatedly, unnecessarily, will end in tears for both sides. Guaranteed. America needs to stop these hostilities towards Russia because if Russia feels like it has nowhere to turn, it will, as a last resort, push back.

With America's belligerence towards Russia I fear the worse. I really do.

In summation I would say the relation is at a low point.

Are you so stupid as to believe that Russian only pushes back? Almost every nation pushes for things in its national interest, Russia included. They are acting mostly to protect their naval base on the Mediterranean Sea...they don't give a rat's ass for the Syrian people. That is not to imply that the U.S. government or Assad does either. Frankly, I'm not 100 percent certain that the U.S. government really wanted Assad out. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that the absence of Assad likely results in less stability in Syria. It makes more sense to say you want him out but to only provide enough support to the rebels to allow a stalemate.
