The Peak Stupidity staff would not respect ourselves if we didn't at least mention the stupidity of the Bai Dien prisoner trade between America and Russia.
This prisoner swap deal reminds me of WWII history, but even more, the Cold War of 1949-'89 and movies about the same.
The most famous prisoner swap of the Cold War may have been that for the downed U-2 spy plane pilot Gary Powers Powers on February 10, 1962. He, along with U.S. student Frederic Pryor*, was exchanged for Soviet KGB agent Rudolf Ivanovich Abel, aka, Colonel William Fisher. Regarding this swap, wiki has an interesting take on what happened during and after Powers' shoot-down (search for the heading "CIA opposition to exchange").
Those prisoners were exchanged at the famous Checkpoint Charlie. In the movies, it's often on some bridge in some classic European city where the prisoners get exchanged, each carefully coming out of a Mercedes. "Look for a black Mercedes." C'mon man, what other colors do they have?" With Brittany Griner, if he's not paid careful attention to this news, one may wonder where the exchange took place. "She'll be coming out of the side exit of the Popeye's Fried Chicken just south of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. Bridge."
During the Cold War, I'm sure there were plenty of mutually beneficial deals made, lots of politics involved on who's chosen, and I imagine a few stupid deals done.
On this one, I'm gonna have to channel Donald Trump. "This is a terrible deal." Instead of someone more worthwhile militarily, politically, whatever, we trade this big Russian arms dealer for a black tatted-up lesbian** druggie basketball player? You know that evil laugh that you see that Russians in the films viewed by the American rocket scientists on The Right Stuff? Yeah, they've got every reason to laugh like that and even bite their pinkies if it comes to that.
I call this whole thing stupidity, because that's the business model of this site. However, that's just how it appears to those who don't want to think about the souls of those of the Potomac Regime. If you think about it, what this really is, again, is the support for Wokeness. Brittany Griner checks a lot of boxes that indicate a non-traditional American The Regime is demonstrating once more its disdain for, and program to persecute, traditional Americans. The Russians, in the meantime, just want Brittany Giner the hell away from their prisons ... cruel and unusual punishment and all... for the rest of the prisoners.
* This guy was a Doctoral student in Economics in Berlin, caught in some confusion in East Berlin just days after the wall had been erected. He was likely a good guy, but was it so very important to get one of our vital Economists back? We'd have been better off trading for one of those Russian "Economist" mail-order brides who don't know the proper term "Home Economist", aka, housewife.
** BTW, a guy talking to me about this story mentioned "her wife". I am not used to hearing it like that, and I DON'T WANT to get used to hearing it like that.
