"On Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin challenged U.S. President Joe Biden to a live debate just hours after a new interview in which Biden said Putin is a “killer.”
“I’ve just thought of this now,” Putin told a Russian state television reporter, ABC News reported. “I want to propose to President Biden to continue our discussion, but on the condition that we do it basically live, as it’s called. Without any delays and directly in an open, direct discussion. It seems to me that would be interesting for the people of Russia and for the people of the United States.”"
As loathsome as Putin is, the US ought not get into slanging matches about who and who is not responsible for deaths and killings. The US record of its military and its agencies is far from praiseworthy, whether or not American politicians, the mainstream media, or even Americans themselves would ever admit it. As always, when we -- the US and its allies -- kill, it's morally and legally justified, but when our enemies do it, it is criminal.
