It could only make sense to you. It's not so much Russia as the leader of Russia. But Putin's iron grip on his country makes him Russia.
It's ok with you that he has his enemies, journalists, political opponents or just people who disagree with him jailed, tortured, killed or all three. Steals billions of dollars from the Russian people for his family and cronies. Has shut down the free press. Commits war crimes in Syria. Invaded Crimea. Meddles in democratic elections throughout Europe and the U.S. through cyber crime and blackmail. He wants Russia to be the only world super power. Has replaced Russian democracy with oligarchy. He is a gangster, a war criminal and a despot. And hates a strong U.S.
Didn't know you had to be a liberal to think he and by extension his whole country is not our friend. Your theory needs work
TL, Buddy that is nice succinct recap of the Obama admin.
I could go through by item and site where the previous admin has done damn near everything listed above. The election narrative is a hot button topic right now I will stick to that. "Meddles in democratic elections throughout Europe" that would also be our CIA, we know this now as a result of the Vault 7 leak.
In Israel " a a bipartisan congressional report concluded that a non-profit funded by the Obama State Department attempted to influence the 2015 Israeli election to oust conservative Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a vocal critic of the Iran deal."
I am not making an excuse for Putin, lets not pretend that we do not do the same things. Something I was thinking about, we have members of the intelligence community actively trying to bring down the President. When they hurt the President they hurt the whole country. Are you willing to go to war with Russia just to damage President Trump?
