#1 “It’s in our national interests to help maintain stability in Afghanistan,” he [Putin] continued.

Doublespeak. He and Obama (lecturer-in-chief) are meant for each other. What has Russia done to maintain stability in Afghanistan? They are hated in Afghanistan; maybe staying out is good for Afghan stability.

#5 I'm sure they'd love to make us lose and simultaneously sue us for losing.
