    Was Hillary prophetic or what?

    WATCH Hillary at Oct 19, 2016 debate warning Trump will try to break up NATO because it's on "Putin's wish list." She also predicts Putin was hacking 2016 election to help Trump win which was just confirmed by GOP led Senate Intel Committee. Like today Trump denies Russia did it:

    And, you have to admit, "Deplorables" was a perfectly apt description of Trump supporters.

    The Russian leader will likely pledge progress on issues like Syria at their Helsinki summit. But officials from U.S.-allied countries say Trump should be skeptical.


    President Donald Trump will soon have the high-profile summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin that he has sought for years. But with days to go until Monday’s talks in Helsinki, Finland, the people with the highest stakes in the meeting — an American public still rattled by Russia’s 2016 election interference and key U.S. allies wary of Putin’s agenda in their neighborhoods — have less to celebrate.

    Trump’s “natural inclination is to admire Putin and to reach out to him” because of his affinity for autocrats, said Charles Kupchan, the top White House Europe official under former President Barack Obama. Meanwhile, the president is publicly critical of democratically-elected leaders in U.S.-friendly countries.
    =====================================
    Trump is drawn to strongmen. But people in the know are concerned that Trump will be ill prepared for his meeting with Putin.

    HOW SO ??????

    Russia has a smaller economy than the country of Italy, which has a smaller economy that the state of California.
    Putin does not have sanctions on the USA.
    Putin does not have Trump by the balls --- Trump has more economic leverage on Russia than the other way around.
    In case they have not covered in your world history class - the USSR which is Russia plus all of the break away republics LOST THE COLD WAR.

    Noting has changed to alter that dynamic.

    Same way Russians have always done, Kompromat.

    Putin has shoved millions at Trump, his people have flattered him, done nice things for and to him, and arranged for him to be president.

    Don't take my word for it, Mueller will be along before long to explain it all.
    There is a monster in the White House.

    The USA won the wars of the 20th Century. The 21st Century wars will have different adversaries. The two most visible enemies are China and radical Islam.

    Russia is a switch hitter. They can be on our side or the wrong side... it is up to the USA to decide which.

    "Fair" for who? None of the Eastern European states want to be Russian "clients". They all remember how much fun that was from the Cold War.

    You advocate abandoning US allies in the name of trying to persuade an inherently untrustworthy regime run by a former member of the KGB to do....what?
