Why are media people so stupid?
Were FDR or Truman happy to sit down with Stalin at Yalta? Stalin was responsible for more murders and genocide than anyone in history, yet American Presidents sat with him, smiled for the cameras and called him a critical Allie, why?
The answer is simple, the Soviets were part of the effort in defeating Nazi Germany.
Now Donald Trump views Russians as critical to defeating ISIS. After ISIS is defeated, then the relationship with Russia will be reviewed.
It’s not complicated when you have Trump as CINC. He understands better than any other candidate what’s going on. He knows the Middle East is full of bad guys and one must choose which bad guy to take out first and to that end it is efficient to make alliances with other bad guys to get it done. No other candidate is as smart as Donald Trump in this subject matter, none. And it is exactly coming from Donald’s prowess in being a smart and tough negotiator. That’s why he’s the best guy bar none for the job. We are so fortunate to have him at this time in American history.
Between Russia and the U.S. the principle of Mutually Assured Destruction still is in force. So Putin is really no threat to Trump, or vice versa. OTOH, Putin has been eating Obola’s lunch for years. Trump and Putin can work together at destroying ISIS.
However, at some point in the future Russia will move on Israel for her oil and natural gas. That will be a SHTF juncture.
