He's no worse than the Sauds.

While I don't particularly agree with Putin, the fact is Russia is no longer interested in invading the US.

What I find troubling, is old-guard cold-warriors who seem intent on stoking another long term conflict with Russia. De-escalating meaningless conflict with Russia would be the one silver lining to a Trump presidency.

Also, Europe should learn to handle their own business. We no longer have the luxury of providing them with a free ride when it comes to defense.
