    Help me out here. What is it you guys actually want?

    Is your goal to make Russia a client state within the Empire? You tried that in the 90s and failed.

    Are you just trying to stick a nettle up the bear’s backside? Well, missiles in Romania, arming neo-nazis in Ukraine, and forward deployments in the Baltics should crack that nut. I can just imagine the hysteria if the Russians started arming Cuba and Venezuela or the Chinese started forward deployments in Sonora. Oh, sorry – I forgot you’re exceptional and I shouldn’t be applying the same standards here.

    Or is it a nuclear war you’re after? Given recent changes in US strategic doctrine, I’m sure there are plenty of nutters inside the Beltway who reckon they could win that one. And they don’t all have bushy moustaches.

    Or is it that you just loathe Trump so much that you don’t give a damn what the consequences of undermining – perhaps dethroning him – might be? War…meh…at least you won’t have to put up with Trump. Yeah, well, regime change usually does have collateral damage, but it’s worth it in the end. Just ask an Iraqi. Or a Syrian. Or a Libyan. Or a Yemeni. Unless this time there’s nobody left to ask, of course.

      What we actually want, Vlad, is for you to go back to bed. Tell your buddies at the Internet Research Agency that they can go back to trolling Cletus on F*#$book.

    • Just the truth. If we can jail Trump at the same time, that’s the gravy. BTW, I think Russia today is closer to a fascist state than communistic. Ah, just like the good old USA.

    I feel much the same way as Error404, in that a new cold war and constant demonizing Russia is not good for the U.S., Europe, or anybody. But now I understand backlash against the “summit”. In diplomacy, style is often as important as substance. Subtleties and nuances matter. Here, the donald was totally out of his league, and he embarrassed many Americans (not all, of course) across the entire political spectrum.

    A souless computer analyzing what was said might score it as a typical ho-hum press conference.
    1. Frank discussions between leaders…..check
    2. Wide range of topics…….check
    3. Agree to disagree, but keep communications open……check.
    This is the standard stuff.

    But trump obviously conveyed a different message, especially to his audience at home. Where was the tough, straight talker that could stand up to anybody? Why tip-toe around the tough issues with Putin, but revert to campaign bullying against political foes, at the same press conference. Weird, indeed.
