Kokesh is a combat veteran. His loyalty to the United States is not in question. Kokesh received the Combat Action Ribbon and the Navy Commendation Medal after his honorable discharge from active duty.

I suspect, much like stated above RT's sole purpose is to promote negative propaganda. Which in turn makes me feel a little compromised.
If I was Russia and I wanted America to withdraw from the Stans and I knew doing so militarily was not an option what would be the best way to go about it?

Al Jazeera-English and Sara Ganim, the reporter who broke open the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse scandal at Penn State, were among the winners of George Polk Awards in Journalism, announced Sunday by Long Island University.
Ganim is a 24-year old crime reporter for the Harrisburg Patriot-News whose dogged pursuit of a grand jury investigation helped her uncover one of the biggest scandals in the history of college athletics. She won for Sports Reporting.
The reporting of Ganim and some of her colleagues was instrumental in uncovering a lurid history of alleged sexual abuse and rape by former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, a loyal lieutenant of Joe Paterno.

Imagine we started suffering terrorist attacks based in Mexico and were told "any intervention in Mexican affairs will be regarded as a direct attack on Moscow".
This is what the United States has done with Kazakhstan/Uzbekistan, Ukraine and Georgia, respectively.
