TRUMP EMBARASSES U.S. WAR HAWKS
HELSINKI July 16, 2018
President Donald J. Trump outraged American war hawks in both the Democratic and Republican parties by failing to pursue their aggressive points with Russia.
As Trump had done earlier this year in his summit with Kim Jong-un in Singapore, he returned to his campaign position. The United States must not provoke conflict around the world — which it has been doing since 1945. Believe it or not.
Arizona Senator John McCain (R) was appalled.
Sen. John McCain said President Donald Trump, appearing with Russian President Vladimir Putin at a press conference following their summit in Helsinki, had "abased himself ... abjectly before a tyrant.
Contrary to Washington's claims, the Russian Federation has been pursuing a non-aggression policy since 2000 when Vladimir Putin became the President. Putin reversed Russia's almost fatal decline under Boris Yeltsin. The American war hawks were delighted with Yeltsin. Yeltsin was their man. The Cold War had ended, but not for Washington.
The war hawks are unhappy with Putin who has derailed their schemes. That's the breaks boys and girls.
I would give Trump a Gold Star on his report card for Helsinki. Even though Trump back-tracked the next day, he deserves a star. I give him another star for Singapore too. We'll have to wait to see how Washington weasels out of that one. They will blame the DPRK, Trump, or both.
What do I know? Here's Patrick Buchanan. He's been around. Let's see what he thinks.
