    My comments are from an American perspective. I'm not so sure the US is as much of a paper tiger as you claim. Much of what we see might be a response to Trump more so than the US. American business and Intelligence have their tentacles in lots of places. They pull lots of strings.

    We are not so much Putin's enemy, as his puppets, these days.

    I'm not an enemy of the Russian people, nor am I a puppet of theirs. I doubt Putin is controlling events anywhere near where the media would lead me to believe.

    America is its own worst enemy. Capitalism's purpose is to go where it wills and waits for an equal response from forces that are opposed to its actions. That adversarial philosophy creates division, not collaboration. America is at war with itself, but as Spot accurately points out, its leaders and media project enemies onto their people to keep the focus off the actual problem.

    We have been witnessing a breach of this projecting within the intelligence community regarding Trump's election.

    Sorry that you cannot see the fact that what I said was not personal.
    I am not an enemy of the Russian People, either. The we to whom I refer is the "we the Americans" who have allowed this pustule of a human being to represent us and suck up to men like Putin, Kim, and the Saudi Princes. The Hawks he has put in his service have him dancing to a tune that will likely lead us to much more exciting future than we ever dreamed of.

    'Reality,' sa molesworth 2, 'is so unspeakably sordid it make me shudder.'


    A little late for a thread with 1236 posts perhaps, but it struck me as appropriate as we enter the lead-up to the Presidential Primaries.

    I take it, in answer to the thread title, that there will only be one Republican candidate?

    Actually, spot, there will be two. Former Republican Governor of Massachusetts, William Weld (who also ran as Libertarian VP in 2016) is a challenger.

    Four years ago you could get 33:1 odds against Mr Trump, I expect you could get even longer odds today on Governor Weld (who, I note incredulously, is even older than the fossil he's proposing to replace!).

    I'll tell you how to invigorate US politics - put a 42 year age cap on all Presidential hopefuls seeking a first term. Enough of these pensioned retiree geriatrics, if you have to use Viagra you're too old to serve. And Governor Weld got a medical deferment from Vietnam because of a back problem and he's still walking without a stick? How did that happen.

    I really hope that, for the sake of the world. this tub-thumping prat will not be voted in again. He's the sort of idiot who could easily throw his toys out of the pram and press 'the button' whilst settling back into his pram, if another country ruffled his feathers badly enough.

    I trust that the American people will be more careful and think round corners before they put their X on the ballot paper. I haven't the faintest clue who any alternatives are, but there must be some. I have enough trouble trying to fathom out our own pathetic idiots, who are supposed to be running this poor country of ours, let alone the prospective leader/s of the most powerful nation in the world ! Gawd help us all !

    spot, although you are right about Weld, it is important that someone Republican takes a stand.

    I also do not want a geriatric president.
