There are lies on both sides, and it’s clear that there is a faction of insanity that wants to push a war with Russia. That said, the defense of Russia’s gov’t is ridiculous.
Putin makes the Clintons look like a children’s choir.
For folks to knee-jerk to the defense of the Russian gov’t over everything these days speaks volumes about how good their propaganda machine works.
Russian aren’t the enemy, I agree. The Russian gov’t OTOH - should be treated like China.
I would be surprised if the Russians were not involved somehow in our elections. We certainly have been extensively involved in the elections of other countries - Israel and Russia among others. We witnessed the extensive efforts by the U.S. to get Shaakasvilli elected in Georgia.
A war with Russia would spell disaster for us.
The Russian *people* are responsible for Putin - make no mistake. Just as the Israelites described in 1st Samuel 8 were when they asked for an earthly king instead of trusting God in freedom.
The Russians wanted the false glory of the USSR instead of humbling themselves and investing in the rough task of building a truly free society...and the West was not in a place to offer genuine support nor leading by example.
So the Russians have been their own worst enemy- not ours. We just need to keep focused on “MAGA” and Trump’s agenda. That is how we “win,” by being strong from within. By proving *in practice* the endurance and superiority of our institutions, rule of law, and economics...
And of course by re-embracing “In God We Trust” for real, so that Putin’s fake Christianity won’t fill the moral vacuum.
