In a period of a few weeks...

the Anti-Trumpers have become frantic over both:

  • "Oh my God, he's insane, he wants to risk nuclear war with China!" and
  • "Oh my God, he's insane, he doesn't want to risk nuclear war with Russia!"

  1. Gene, most liberals don't want to start a war with Russia - they think that Hillary's Russian reset, had it been successful, would have been a great thing. The problem liberals have with Trump's behavior toward Russia is not that he wants cooperation rather than war - it's that he seems to want capitulation, not just cooperation. He doesn't seem to have any qualms over Putin's dictatorial tendencies, he seems unwilling to defend our NATO allies, he seems to have no outrage at all over Russian hacking of American citizens, etc.

    Liberals don't really want to be "tough on Russia", they're just uneasy with Trump acting like a puppet.

      They are just the witless tools of those who do.

      Suuuuuure, Keshav, he's going to hand Alaska and California over to Putin, and have the Russian army patrol Washington.

      Think I'm due back on planet earth now, however.

      They are just so insanely anti-Trump they will do it anyway, just to be contra-Trump.
