    The trick to better foreign relations is for you to consider the lives abroad first and then expect reciprocity from that engagement.

    That's a great piece.
    Trump Derangement Syndrome, or TDS, affects millions of right wing Americans. Symptoms include frequent use of "whataboutisms," irrational rants about how the DNC, GOP, MSM, FBI, NSA, CIA, and FB are all conspiring to get Trump, blaming Obama and/or Clinton for things Trump has done or is doing, and a bizarre admiration for Vladimir Putin. Known TDS vectors are Fox News and the @RealDonaltTrump twitter feed.

    Maybe you should read.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Rank speculation on Sullivan's part, his crystal ball may be cracked. I think Putin will come out of this looking like he always does - a hero to his people. The people who hated him before will still hate him, and the rest will think he's a pretty damn good leader. The Ukraine will still be the pipeline nation inbetween the producer and the consumer and will remain brothers with Russia (they have common interests) and now they'll be wiping their asses with a billion dollars courtesy of our failed POTUS.

    This isn't the Cold War and Russia isn't the superpower it used to be. Bullying Ukraine gains him nothing but negative response from the global community. Younger Russians do not buy into this old school, Cold War muscle flexing mentality. They don't want conflict. They don't want Russian foreign policy written with a Kalashnikov. He looks desperate. His attempt to bag Ukraine politically failed and resulted in his man getting run out of town, now he has to resort to military force to try and coerce them.

    The image he built of himself, especially since Syria, is shattering on the world stage. He looks like thug with no options other than muscle. We can sit back and watch this spin downward for him and Russia and we don't have to do a thing.

    If there was anyone in the global community that had the nads to stand up to him, I would agree. However, there isn't and I doubt Putin really cares if he looks like a thug, because in his mind, he looks like a tough mother****er, that doesn't have to take **** off anyone.

    As with Guilianai's gushing praise of Putin, who doesn't have to live by those pesky rules of Democracy that Obama does.
    Nice to see Mr. Cantor's support of the POTUSA, which I don't see3 on FOX .

    Rank speculation on your part. Your crystal ball may be cracked.

    Khazakstan has already broken ranks with Russia - usually their most dependable satellite. I would assume all the other nations that now enjoy independent status from Russia will follow and agree. If you actually, you know, READ any of the stuff I posted you'd see that the Russian people are not too excited about this incursion and probably would really dislike an actual invasion of the main Ukrainian state. News reports are saying that Russia is blocking outside information to their citizens about Ukrainian reaction.. thats not real promising for them....Russians have many ways to get around a firewall, unlike, for example Chinese or Iranians. Its not going to look good for him as this unfolds, internationally or domestically.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
