To say the least...

Disappeared until WWI, was the start of WWII (in Europe) and the center of the dispute that became cold war and the beginning of the end of communism in Europe.

Wow, the WH is getting tough with Russia. Ooh, and our fearless leader called Putin to give a piece of his mind. He said congrats on the election. Funny though. He has not said or tweeted a harsh word about Putin, or Stormy Daniels.

I was married. I know that if some woman claimed than I had had an affair with her, if it were true, I'd lie as long as I could. And, I'd do it loud and long. The prez needs to clear this stuff up with Melania or he's going to be denied nookie, and that can't be good. Although, he's spending the weekends at Mar a Lago ... again.

I remember arguing that when US presidents try to work with the Russians things never work out. Which is unfortunate but it is how it is and will always be.

Dude, you can't take him seriously. He's in a very important position, but what he tweets and his words are irrelevant. What'd he call Kim? Just wait.

It's difficult to believe he thought this out, but last April 2017, you know the last time there was a completely unfounded accusation of Syria using chemical weapons, Trump threw some feckless Tomahawks at an airbase and killed a few people, which actually seemed to sate everybody's bloodlust for a little while without starting a war.

Once again, we're supposed to believe Assad would do pretty much the most counter-productive thing possible at the moment, and believe it without any proof whatsoever, but if it's a chance for Trump to show he's anti-Russia and also rally the troops, it's being smarter than believing Assad used chemical weapons in Douma.

I don't take him seriously but it is the first time he has criticized Little Putin.

Later he tweeted something about working with and peace the Russians. So yeah, I think he is mostly just blowing off steam but getting into a war would be a great way to make all these scandals fade away.

12 minutes from Putin's address to the Federal Assembly on March 1, where he discusses Russia's new weapons that were created after the USA pulled out of the ABM treaty.

awww,
I`m stunned by iron logic of the statement.
Bigger maturity of the contemporary society/s/ is our only hope,
but
chances are quite low, as I can see it,
`cause
if we look around the world for most of the leaders elections... -argh-

Little Putin pulled the same trick. Before his invasion of Ukraine his popularity was fading and then he starts a war and the Russians love him. It is the tribal mentality which is no different here although at least here you and your family won't poisoned for speaking out so there is some hope. Not to mention no American, I know of, see any glory in this.
