Ah, the pretending-to-be-deliberately-obtuse gambit.
Russiagate is all about amping up the illegal war of aggression in Syria (and also escalating the proxy war in Ukraine). At least that's how it's being used right now. Did you really not catch that?
Democrats oppose trump, regardless of whether it's a pro-war or anti-war policy.Democrats tend to be a little more lowkey in the way they pitch their pro-war platforms, because they don't get the same political windfall from it that the republicans do. Hence why democrats tend to like drone strikes whereas republicans prefer "boots-on-the-ground."
i'm totally calm. as an anti-war independent, i have absolutely no say in the political process, which is oddly liberating.False. And how did we go from you don't have to be a fan of Putin's in order to support the citizens to Russia to here? I think you need to calm down just a bit.
Lets not forget China too...Russia poses a serious threat. (And no, this isn't the 80's calling.) We need to be cognizant of that and on guard for it in terms of our elections. That said, we also need to be on guard and avoid chasing our tails over "Russia, Russia, Russia!" because that, in and of itself, serves their purposes, not ours. Russia (and Putin, in particular) relishes sewing seeds of discord and chaos. We needn't assist them in that.
Hillary Clinton explicitly ran on her desire to establish a no-fly zone in Syria, she mentioned it verbatim in at least one debate, and the pentagon was of the opinion that a no-fly zone in Syria stood an excellent chance of provoking a greater war in Syria, including escalating to war with Russia. (See the Guardian link I provided.)Well it certainly wasn't what Highway said, at least not to my knowledge.
Sure you can. But when average Joes meet Russians in the US and automatically assume they are "Putin Plants" we have a problem.You can be anti Putin/KGB and be pro Russian at the same time.
