Now, we are told, the general calls Sergei Prikhodko, the Russian national security adviser, many nights. Gen. Jones believes that by regularly interacting with Prikhodko, he can better defend Americans from the threats we face today.
During World War II, Prime Minister Winston Churchill visited Josef Stalin in the Kremlin. Stalin was rude, even abusive. He told Churchill that if the British fought the Germans harder, they wouldn't be so afraid of them.
Instead of being quiet or more circumspect, Churchill raised his voice, telling London that if Stalin's abuse continued, he would be forced to break off negotiations and head back home. The uneasy alliance between the Communists and the West would be in jeopardy.

The next day, Stalin was quiet, polite, almost cooperative.

Everything that Gen. Jones says to Prikhodko is being recorded. Everything.
