    LONDON: The United States is building secret bases in Afghanistan from which they intend to attack Russia, said Kremlin officials.

    According to the Daily Express, the claim has emerged in the wake of the most elaborate spy swap since the Cold War, which saw 10 Moscow-controlled sleeper agents traded for four Russians spying for the West. "As part of Barbarossa 3, the US government is building 13 secret bases in Afghanistan as part of a forward push towards the eventual war against Russia because that war is simply unavoidable," investigative journalist Daniel Estulin said.

    Operation Barbarossa was codename given to Hitler’s failed attempt to conquer Russia in 1941. "Putin proved to be an apt negotiator and he has out negotiated both the Americans and the Europeans, but what we are seeing right now, in geopolitical terms, is that they’re still at it," he added.

    Childish that both these countries always try to outdo each other. If these two join hands, half of the world's problems would be solved.

    Absurd is what i can think of. Russia does not share border with Astan anymore. CIS nations would not want to become pawns in any big war. Why exactly would the US need base in Astan when it has floating bases all over ready for MAD??

    Whoever thinks of such things.Duh!!

    Wow. Never expected this rhetorical BS from Russia.
    If anything, those bases might be used in the event of a military push into Pakistan.

    China is a bigger threat to USA then Russia economically, idealogically and as a competitor for resources, if anything these Afghan bases are meant for China.
