"Legion" has some thoughts on the Trump/Putin Summit. It's hard to know what liberals want or believe. Trump stands up to Putin for Russia's support of Al Assad, Kim and Iran's Mullahs, and libs scream that he's going to get us into a war. He wants to explore the possibility of building a relationship with Putin to address evil leaders who threaten the world and he's guilty of collusion. Libs then scream that Trump is a fool if he thinks America and Russia could ever live separate but cooperative lives. Since today's libs know zero about world history let me suggest three important events to review: WWII. Boris Yeltzin and Mikhail Gorbachev.
WWII: America came to Russia's defense and together with our allies saved Russia and defeated Hitler.
Yeltsin: The Russian who took charge after the Cold War and began the end to Stalin's brutal communist regime.
Gorbachev: a friend of America most recognized for ending CCCP and rebuilding Russia in a more moderate "Western" type government while maintaining sovereignty. Also remembered for being the first Russian president to visit America. (I still have photo of his plane at MPLS airport). He and Reagan built a more workable friendship that lasted until Putin.
I'm not ready to contend that Putin is a "good guy" who can be trusted, but I am saying that forming a new cooperative relationship with Russia is a worthy goal. Think what could be accomplished if our two countries would work together to end the Islamic terrorism threat, plus the NOKO insanity. A bit Pollyanna? Well, maybe just a bit, but I can't help but believe the same thing was said in the 30s about ever having a peaceful relationship with Germany and Japan. I rest my case.
