Is Donald Trump The Kremlin's Candidate?
Trump brushed off claims that Russia is trying to help his campaign by leaking thousands of emails from the DNC. Trump for years pursued business deals with Russian oligarchs. Edward Lucas' book "Deception: Spies, Lies and How Russia Dupes the West”, lays out the modus operandi of fusing “organized crime, big business, conventional diplomacy — and intelligence enmeshed subversively to guide and mold.
If that is the case, it just proves that Trump has better foreign relations than anyone has had for quite a few years.
Hillary Clinton's time as Secretary of State was to take out dictators like Quadaffi and Mubarack without thinking about who would take their place. In Libya, you get Muslim militias instituting the harshest religious law, and help for Boko Haram to enforce Shariah law in northern Nigeria. In Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood was big enough to organize as a political party, get voted in, and start implementing Shariah law before a military coup kicked them out.
Hillary did the same in Yemen, which is still in civil war so bad the Saudis have built a wall around the country to contain it. And she tried to overthrow several other dictators, assuming that the bad acts they did were out of spite or power lust, not realizing these mostly secular dictators were controlling even worse people.
Hillary was incompetent/ignorant to think that Russia would let her take out Assad, a dictator that let them have a large military base on the Mediterranean. Russia stepped in to defend the local leader who let them use a major military installation for free, leading to a bloody four year war - her fault, because we had no fighting in Syria or fighting with Russia. She looks at Russia as if it is the 1980s, the Cold War, while failing to see they are our natural allies against Muslim terrorism. They've been fighting in Chechnya and regular terrorist attacks for years - and we can use their help. Their Arabic translators, for example, are usually secular, not religious and prone to sympathy to fundamentalists.
But Hillary Clinton didn't even pay attention to the militias she armed in Syria to fight Assad were using the same weapons to fight us in Iraq to create the ISIS state. ISIS, and all its atrocities, only exists because she armed them under the foolish belief that the enemy of our enemy is our friend.
The proxy war we're having with Russia in Syria and the entire Middle East in flames is HER FAULT.
Trump did say that he admires Putin. Problem is, Putin is a longtime thug who could manipulate Trump quite easily. All he would have to do is appeal to Trump's ego. Let's face it, Trump is not that smart and certainly not sophisticated about world affairs.
Indeed. But to be fair, Trump is smart about some things, but he'd be in over his head with Putin.
And we should take your opinion because????

Why are Republicans in denial about Donald Trump and his many scams and lies?When someone engages contractors and agrees to pay them and then goes bankrupt on that promise it is basically a lie. When a man has a wife AND a mistress, he is certain to be lying to one, or more likely both of...

Today, July 27, 2016 Donald Trump first said: "They probably have her 33,000 e-mails. I hope they do. They probably have her 33,000 e-mails that she lost and deleted because you'd see some beauties there. So let's see," and "Russia, if you're listening, I hope...

I am really curious about what other women think; because I've only recently started paying attention to politics since the media is ramping up Trump so much, lately. Before that, I'm sorry... I was not even SORT of paying attention to any other candidate from any party. Hillary is my girl, and she...
