Putin is going to annex the Ukraine. Trump is too busy to stop him and the Europeans are too weak. It will probably be fairly peaceful because resistance would be futile.

China will threaten war over trade, but unless Japan gives them bases it is probably just talk.

"Putin is going to annex the Ukraine." It would be best for Ukraine but I doubt he will do that, only if the really force him to do so. Ukraine would be a big sinkhole for Russian economy and dead ballast for Russian people.

The free world trade market that’s been the American led model since post WWII is being toppled.

"The Trump administration has blasted Moscow's latest actions in Ukraine, a former Soviet republic, but the president himself has given a far lower key response."

Yes, not a word from Trump. When will Mr Mueller come up with goods. I have never in my long life seen a USA president beholden to the Kremlin. 

What's that expression: we, communists, will provide the capitalists the rope to hang themselves with.

Putin is testing all over the place. And I have feared that Trump will allow the butcher in the Kremlin to do whatever in Ukraine.

The Kremlin will annex the Ukraine on Trump's watch. He's been laundering their money for years. They own him like a kept slave.

Mixed feelings about China. I fully support going after them for stealing trade secrets and technology. And we should hit them hard over it. Trump can even make up a nickname or two if he wants.

The tariffs are a different story. Much of the deficit is from US companies moving overseas and putting US workers out of work so they can get bigger bonuses. Then they import their products back into the US and it's considered a "Chinese import."

That's grown tremendously over the years, and as a response to "China not buying enough US products (to match our corporate imports)" we use tariffs, and the Chinese respond, and now they are hurting US farmers. So at the end of the day it's the US farmers paying for the greed of corporate America. And in return we gave corporations, the richest entities on earth making record profits, a tax cut.

Enjoy that, Mr. Soybean farmer, courtesy of the GOP.

Bad news for the US State Dept. they keep signing defense agreements with countries they have no intention of defending. This is a European problem and requires a European solution.

Now who was it again that allowed Crimea to be annexed in the first place? Hmmmm....

Yes, not a word from Trump. When will Mr Mueller come up with goods. I have never in my long life seen a USA president beholden to the Kremlin. 

So the President should shun the only other nuclear superpower that has the ability to destroy us? Yeah, that sounds so emotionally smart.

What's that expression: we, communists, will provide the capitalists the rope to hang themselves with.

What?

Putin is testing all over the place. And I have feared that Trump will allow the butcher in the Kremlin to do whatever in Ukraine.

No, that’s the other President.

Trump will be getting his next set of instructions from the Russians.

The stock response of conservatives to justify Trump's utter incompetence.

Now who was is it again that hasn't held Russia accountable?

So the President should shun the only other nuclear superpower that has the ability to destroy us? Yeah, that sounds so emotionally smart.

Did you forget China is a nuclear power with the ability to destroy us? Yeah, that sounds intelligent.

No, that’s the other President.

Uhhh . . . There's only one president and he's doing nothing to punish Russia for its aggressive behavior.

It's hilarious that conservatibes constantly blame Obama for Trump's absolute incompetence and ineffectiveness.

Bass: So the President should shun the only other nuclear superpower that has the ability to destroy us?

Well, yeah. Are you afraid or something?

These new conservative men under Trump will take some getting used to. It really is just incredibly awkward to see them so submissive to the Russians and making decisions out of fear of repercussions. They went from Reagan and "Tear down that wall!" to Trump and "Don't make them angry!" In another thread someone said that we shouldn't even criticize the Saudis because the words might make them angry.

Like I said, it will take some getting used to.

President Putin is the scariest PotUS we've seen yet, true dat.
