The US needs a Britney Griner back just as bad as it needs a Viktor Bout loose. There's absolutely no rationale behind such an exchange.

Which is why it's going to take a Biden administration to do it!

#3 Gee, sounds like a fair trade to me. A notorious arms dealer for a two-bit athlete. There must be a first-round draft choice in there somewhere.

#4 I'm absolutely no fan of Rogan, but he makes a good point here. He does not extend the argument to the fact that there are Americans in foreign jails over drugs in countries other than Russia, and USGov doesn't break a sweat over them.

This is all about playing to the BLM crowd.

#6 I've seen alot of vids circulating around were black people are saying the same thing as Rogan. They don't want her ass back either.

#9 Good WNBA players go to Russia every year because it is a relevant sport there and the salaries are much higher.

This negotiation is a big mistake. It makes the world that much more dangerous for Americans who hate America. Now the Dixie Chicks won’t be able to leave the country.
