Russia is still super poor (more poor than the US) and has an inferior military in comparison to us. I'm more worried about another pointless trillion dollar ground war happening again, or a world where the draft is reinstated.
Yeah, worried about the latter.
Mikey, Russia doesn't stand a chance against the US and Putin knows that. Russia and China allied maybe but that's not going to happen.
You guys don't think this is just to distract from the Congressional investigation into the close ties between Trump and Russia?
possibly. I always wondered if those rumors of Putin giving the U.S trump by hacking and shit was real. who knows
I don't think there's much of a question whether Russia interfered with the election in terms of spreading fake news, etc. I haven't seen it claimed that they literally hacked the voting machines or whatever. I highly doubt the entire Trump administration is Russian spies - But, however in league they were/are with Russia, Trump as president was in Putin's interest. That said, there is undoubtedly a lot we don't know.
Npret, I think that's a possibility, but I doubt it was the only motivation.
People said the immigration ban was just a distraction from putting Bannon in the National Security Council, too. Among other things, I think that might be over-estimating how strong Trump's smoke and mirrors game is.
