    “The idea that the United States would leave Europe to fend for itself against Russia is wildly far-fetched and seemingly underscores the extent to which the President is either completely oblivious to how unshakable America’s commitment to European security truly is, or else has ulterior motives in attempting to undermine that commitment.”

    What the hell do you mean, “fend for itself”? Russia can barely hold itself together, let alone threaten peninsular Europe. Russia is under pressure from broken US/EU undertakings in Ukraine and forward US manpower and equipment deployments in Romania, the Baltics, and Poland. It is because of this NATO (i.e., primarily US) threat that the Russian Western Military District has had to be strengthened – but strengthened with purely defensive forces and a defensive strategic doctrine.

    As for the dozens of US bases and the hundreds of thousands of troops remaining in Europe……of course they will stay. The occupation must continue in order to ensure there’s no deviation from globalism and neoliberalism. Confusing Trump’s attention-seeking with the US Deep State’s policy agenda is naive, and the latter will prevail. At least, it will prevail until the US collapses in on itself economically and sociopolitically; who knows when that will be, but it’s at least a decade away and probably several decades.

    Last week’s OPCW report on the latest purported sarin attack in Syria makes it perfectly clear that the US and its allies have no compunction lying about the activities of Russia and her allies. The same is happening in Europe.

    • We’ve got a Deep State conspiracy theorist on our hands here, folks. This is laughable.

        Yeah, I say “fuck you” Error404 based on this and other comments they recently made. And I don’t say that lightly – give me a break. Guess the recent Russian indictments haven’t silenced the trolls.

      So, taking Crimea, meddling in eastern Ukraine,and screwing with the US election is defensive? I don’t think so.

    Besides, it wasn’t sarin, it was chlorine (bleach to the neophytes).
    Only a broke-dick country like Russia would use the cheapest stuff.
