President sends troops to Russia!!!

President sends troops to Russia!!

That's not today's headline, that was 99 years ago in 1918. One of the three reasons that President Woodrow Wilson, a DEMOCRAT, sent troops to Russia was to help the Russians organize a new government. The reasons are detailed in Wilson's "Aide-Memoire".

In August and September of 1918, about 13,000 United States troops arrived in Russia. They remained there until December of 1919. We lost 137 killed in action and 216 dead from accidents and... disease. They accomplished almost nothing of value. Wait, they did bring home about 80 Russian brides!!

Those Democrats and Republicans in Congress expressing their outrage that the Russian would try to interfere with our elections and our government should pick up a history book and realize that we did it first.

Remember, "those who do not learn from history are condemned to serve as our elected officials."
