I understand politically why the Media and the Democrats are highlighting the Russia angle, but outside of that, What really is the fear? Wouldn't an improved relationship with Russia ease tensions around the world?

What exactly is the fear? Is it residual energy from the Coldwar? I see, through netflix, how the Russian and Chinese national image is used to represent some nefarious, dark element.. but TV programming and internal political posturing aside..

What's the big deal?

I kind of like, "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer." In order to talk them into peace (Nice try) or get a sense of serious attitude, a slip of the tongue. It is intellectual recon.

You lie with dogs, you're going to come up with fleas.


The issue with Russia under Putin's rule, as I understand it is about jockeying for world power and domination. Destroy you biggest adversary. Who is "king of the mountain"? Essentially I view this as Russia knocking America off the top of the world mountain and replacing us. It's essentially the same thing for America, which is why we have the largest and most powerful military in the world. We claim to bow to no one. We have more than 200 military bases throughout the world. And why is that?

Because we are brilliant strategists? Yes. :em4000:

I know this is my first status update since 2020 begin, but all of us agree that 2020 delivered a low-blow
to each of us with the miscellaneous events we have recently seen which brought all of us great displeasure.
