Response to Iliyah (Reply #1)

Tue Sep 10, 2019, 10:13 AM

12. As a prized Russian asset, it is no surprise that he objects to any threat to Putin.

It is very simple he is a want-a-be authoritarian who covets the power of the Russian, Chinese and Korean dictators. He has increasingly shown favor to the emerging dictatorships in Turkey, Hungry and Poland. While he attacks our traditional allies, his silence regarding the emergence of authoritarian leaders is highly instructive. If he loses the upcoming election, I will be anxious to see what will be his reaction. I don't see him going quietly back to bilking the gullible and running confidence games. He has had a taste of real power and he has handled badly. As Lincoln remarked if you what to test a man's character, give him power.
