Default McCain says Russia is our nation's biggest threat.

This is how far the Trump Haters have come.
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?

The Republicans rallying behind the Ruskies must have Reagan spinning in his grave.

Except no one is rallying...

Just because you don't have one extreme (Hate Russia! Hate Russia! Hate Russia!) does NOT mean that you have the other extreme (Rally for Russia! Rally for Russia! Rally for Russia!)...

I am unsure which the comment displays more ignorance of Reagan's opposition to the Soviets or Trump's opposition to the Russians. Reagan won the cold war by increasing defense spending they went broke trying to match. Trump has proposed major increases in US defense spending as well as calling out the NATO Deadbeats. Reagan bombed the Libyans clients of the Soviets. Trump ordered a missile attacks on the Syrians a Russian client state. Reagan started the Star Wars anti missile defense system. Trump wants to deploy the anti missile system cancelled by Obama, in Eastern Europe.

Yessiree supporting Trump is sure making Reagan spin in his grave, out of respect.

I agree.

The Russians are the Free world's biggest threat. They literally meddle in or election and helped install a Russian puppet as POTUS. They then tried to do it in France but luckily failed, and wil do the same in Germany also. McCain is absolutely right. ISIS and Islamic terrorism is nothing compared to the threat that Putin poses.

What was your opinion when Romney stated that Russia posed the greatest geo-political threat to our country at which point Obama mocked him?

Both of the Boston Marathon bombers were born in Russia and there's no question they were activists although they were basically anti-Russian activists that opposed the Russian persecution of Muslims in the Chechen Republic as well as the Muslim oppression (religious intolerance) in the United States.

It's always interesting to try and understand "Republican" logic.

Here the "death of Americans" was applied but that didn't matter when the US invaded Afghanistan when no Afghanistan activists had been responsible for the killing of any Americans.

Then we have Sen John McCain that obviously considers Russia a primary enemy of the United States because of Russia's use of military force to acquire territory but McCain doesn't seem to overly object to Israelis use of military force to acquire territory from the Palestinians. Why wouldn't both be on McCain's list of enemies of the United States?

The inconsistencies of Republican logic is never-ending.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.
