Let me say two reasons why Russia is and has been absolutely right, and the United States has been absolutely wrong. And further, let me say that the United States has been so wrong, that it is only by extreme luck that any of us are alive today.
Our luck in fact, is Russia’s stable leadership.
Here are the two reasons:
Russia is supporting, and the US is trying to destroy, the Syrian women in this video https://youtu.be/EhL8D0wYevo, Take a look at it, 18 minutes of interviews with people in Syria. These are the people, and this is the society, that the US is trying to destroy, and replace with a fundamentalist jihadist medievalism by arming and paying a terrorist invasion proxy army composed of ISIS and Al Qaeda and variants. I prefer Syria over fundamentalist medievalism. Syria is a secular, non-sectarian, multi-faith, modern, highly educated, and highly gender equal socialist nation state. This is FAR preferable to putting ISIS in charge, as is US policy. US policy is criminal, violates Nuremberg principles, violates all known human moral and justice principles, the makers of US policy on this are perpetrators of the most vile and gravest of crimes known to humanity. Russia is doing what it can to support the people shown in the video, the people that WE are trying to destroy. I don’t support their destruction. I support those people. I support Syria, and Putin and Russia.
The second reason is Ukraine/Crimea. 2) a less reasoned and measured and stable Russian leader than Putin, would have responded to US expansion of NATO all the way through Crimea via coup in Kiev in 2014, most likely the way the US would have responded if Russia had staged a coup in Virginia and claimed all of Virginia as space for Russian military control, including hand over of the US Naval base at Norfolk, to the Russian fleet. Such unthinkable madness would be met by an American president with nuclear war and we’d all be dead now. So thanks to Putin, we’re all alive today and talking about this now.
Now please stop with your damned asinine bullshit beliefs about both the US and Russia, and let’s see if Trump will do what he says and 1) stop arming terrorists and stop using them to do regime change (as in Syria, and elsewhere), and 2) normalize relations with Russia (and solve Ukraine via Minsk II)
If Clinton (and this Democratic Party establishment) had won the election, if Clinton did as she promised to do, then we would be at war with Russia in a matter of days. So please, knock some sense into yourself.
