    "And it would be necessary, it would be needed to react to this war economically, politically, or, if needed, by other means. And our American friends need to understand this," he added.

    My question: is this what westerners really want?
    But Trump is in Putin's back pocket, right? Trump and Putin are BFF's!

    Westphalian neglects to mention that Russia has retaliatory sanctions against both the US and the EU.


    The GOP stranglehold on American government is over and accountability is now part of the governing equation. Hallelujah!
