Senator McCain is spot-on.

Islamic State is ugly indeed, but last I checked, IS doesn't have MIRVd thermonuclear missiles aimed at all US cities.

Kind of like, If you don't hate Trump, then you must love Trump and everything he does and says.

School yard tactics. They work well on all Democrats.

McCain: Russia Is America's Top Threat, Nothing Has Been Done To Respond

It is a given that Russia is somewhat of a threat to all nations because of it's expansionist history. And Putin still wants to re-unite the old USSR. however,,,

Russia does represent a threat to it's neighbors. Especially those that were former USSR nations. But he doesn't represent a threat to the USA. Even if there was any credence to the accusation that Putin has somehow "effected" our elections. To date however, I know of no attempt by Putin to harm an American overtly or covertly.

Real threats to our citizens home and abroad, and our nation itself, are represented by ISIS, North Korea and Iran in that order.

To think this man wanted to old our nuclear keys.



I would ask the loony Senator from AZ "when was the last time an American was killed by a Russian activist?
McCain is a nutjob whose lips are firmly planted on the ass cheeks of the military industrial complex. He just wants another massive war.

Last I checked it has been a while since Russia threatened to bomb us.

ISIS threatens our children every day. Soft targets to which we cannot respond in kind. Russia lets fly it is assured mutual destruction.

Geopolitics 101 dude. Mot of us came out from under our school desks in the 70's

Where have you been?

I never said nor implied that. I was just noting that hypocrisy of the leftists on this forum that were cheering when Obama mocked Romney for that exact position. Then when the left wing media and the crooked Dems in Congress rediscover Russia for political purposes the moment Obama leaves office, there you guys are NOW showing concern. 6 months ago, nobody on the left had an issue with them.

Trump has requested an additional $64 billion in defense spending. Ordered a significant missile strike on Russian client state Syria reversing his campaign promise of uninvolvement. Trump has aggressively pushed NATO Deadbeats to increase military spending. Trump closed a massive weapons deal with the Saudi's. These are significant actions that directly counter Russian interests.
They are the opposite of what a "puppet" would do.

So, go ahead and explain in terms of these actions the proof that Trump is a Russian agent.

Certainly, Russia is an enemy of the United States--I long for the days of Boris Yeltsin, or even Mikhail Gorbachev (what with his policies of glasnost and perestroika)--but it does seem a bit of a stretch to declare that ISIS, North Korea (which is soon to acquire the ability to miniaturize a nuclear weapon; place it on a warhead; and reach the West Coast of the US) and Iran (which will have such a nuclear weapon the day after North Korea does) are somehow subordinate threats.

And, of course, there is always China, whose expansionism includes even the creation of some (man-made) islands. (This is not even to mention the dispute between China and Japan over the ownership of the Senkaku Islands--a.k.a. the Diaoyu Islands--or China's refusal to recognize Taiwan as a sovereign country; which, ever since Richard Nixon, we have sorta-kinda gone along with, what with our "One-China" policy...)

Teddy Bear just regurgitates talking points, he doesn't realize it, but he is actually a puppet for the left.
