    Allegedly.

    I seem to keep using that word in this thread.

    The NATO alliance has NEVER been weaker, though.

    Are you saying Putin was extremely aggressive towards the US?

    I believe it is still useful as I support in the spirit of co-operation among nations as it is beneficial to all concerned. I know, I'm a little out of step with the current trend toward isolationism.

    He elected Trump as our president, at least according to some people on the "Crazy Train".

    Surely you have heard that...

    Which is why Putin whines like a little bitch every time there is a suggestion that NATO expands and he tries so hard to destabilize it. Yes it is useful.

    Donald Trump doesn't think so. And I guess his opinion is the one that counts.

    After all, he IS the President. And Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States. And, at least allegedly, the 'Leader of the Free World'.

    'Allegedly'.

    That ship is close to sailing, or sinking if you will.

    I guess all of our intelligence agencies are riding on that 'Crazy Train' then, because they all say that Putin was certainly trying very hard to help Trump get elected.

    He kind of really, REALLY, REALLY hated Hillary, you know.

    I woulda argue That, at this point, NATO is creating a greater threat for nuclear war than it's helping.

    I invite you to elaborate on this 'interesting' thought.
