Clinton on Putin: ‘Keep an Eye on Him, Because He’s Not Done’
“His numbers are shrinking,” Clinton said, adding many of those still with him are his diehard supporters.
Putin responds to low support by identifying with nationalist pride, and it works. A Slav nationalist still hankers after Russia’s chunk of Europe per Molotov-Ribbentrop. 2018 may well see another land grab, in Ukraine or Belarus, around the time of his World Cup hosting. His two European land grabs coincided with sporting events and he is all about those distractions. If Trump is in the White House still, we are in for a big game-changer. America, which until last year was pretty great, will never be as great again once she has deserted all of her democratic allies.
I know Clinton was just talking about Putin meddling with your politics and here I’m talking about his military plans. But since the USA has not qualified for the World Cup you should feel safe to meddle back and perhaps deny him the cover. Only massive corruption won Russia and Qatar the right to host it. Trump isn’t going to do much. Just sayin.
