With all-due-respect to Stephen Cohen [who may be “left-leaning” but was also an adviser to Bush 41 (https://www.minnpost.com/politics-policy/2010/11/understanding-us-russian-relations-conversation-stephen-f-cohen), has been called out as a Putin apologist* more than once (https://newrepublic.com/article/116820/vladimir-putin-defended-american-leftist) (http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/foreigners/2014/07/stephen_cohen_vladimir_putin_s_apologist_the_nation_just_published_the_most.html), and hence — surprise — feels this way about the Donster: http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2017/05/17/princeton_russia_expert_stpehen_cohen_slanderous_assault_on_president_trump_is_greatest_threat_to_us_today.html)], STILL not seeing how a bunch of speculative (on BOTH sides), paranoid-to-the-point-of-near-delusion (on BOTH sides), back-and-forth finger-pointing and name-calling about Hillary, Donnie, and the Kremlin is going to be THE factor (histrionics and hyperbole and hysterics, oh my!) that brings us to world-ending holocaust (after, y’know, the U.S., Russia, and respective allies already survived a 40-year Cold War) — as OPPOSED TO, say, this stuff:
Manchester attack: government 'furious' at US leaks of forensic photographs - live updateswww.theguardian.com
Fighting between Islamists and soldiers erupted in the city of Marawi yesterday It was sparked by a raid on the house…www.dailymail.co.uk
And this is JUST what I can manage to keep up with in a 48-hour-period, btw. And, lest anyone think I’m being naïve about what AmeriKKKa and its allies (Australia among them) have done and continue to do to civilians in the ongoing (read: generational) attempt to keep-the-West-safe, let me post this —
Listed below are all known reports for May 2017 - via generally credible sources unless otherwise indicated - of non…airwars.org
— and say that there’s not one molecule of me that’s happy good ol’ Uncle Sam is still killing women and children in other countries (best-intentions-or-no). Point being: my WWIII money is still on crazy people wanting to KILL EACH OTHER in the streets (and, y’know, acting on that impulse), as opposed to crazy people having Conspiracy Theory Wars (pardon me: Info Wars) on the Internet. In case I need to spell out why: one is still a tad bit scarier than the other.
Hell, if you go to the trouble of reading that RCP piece on Cohen (from way back a week ago), he offers: “… if you had asked me a few days ago: What is the #1 threat to the United States today, I would have said international terrorism… Today, I would say it is this assault on President Trump.”
Awwwwwwwwwwww. [Grabs the Kleenex.] So, I thought DJT’s whole calling card is that he’s a big TOUGH GUY who can handle any problems/adversity by-him-self (while other people get called snowflakes). So the “assaults” on him are worse than the daily assaults on civilian women and children (in the name of Allah or Apple Pie)? Color me inspired.
Mind you, I’m well aware that Russia can be a most valuable ally in a WORLD WAR — once the chips are down, of course! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_Union_in_World_War_II
*Oh, and I also realize it doesn’t mean much here to employ the term “Putin apologist” — when certain writers PRAISE Saint Vladimir’s “bold actions”: https://medium.com/@caityjohnstone/someone-just-edited-seth-richs-reddit-posts-b5f185b0aab
