Re: Who are the bad guys?
They're the ones committing the big crimes. Example: look at Putin's bounty on US troops, It's the same thing as Syria, send US troops back in body bags, Trump does a photo op with the body bags, pretends to have empathy, withdraws the troops from Afghanistan, and Putin takes over those bases. The body bags are supposed to be Trump's excuse. *Big* crimes.
Uh, OK.. Except there seems to be very little evidence that the bounty claim is actually true. There is however evidence of US financing groups in Syria, or supplying weapons. Then there's the issue of US bases and troops in Syria, in a "non-invasion honest" sense. And then there's the usual geopolitics. So Soviets invaded Afghanistan, US (and others) used it as a proxy war supporting the warlords that are now causing problems for coalition forces there.
But such is politics. Russia's been a theme from the last election to the next, with a remarkable lack of evidence.. Except perhaps revealing murky goings on at organisations like the FBI. Which privacy-wise is perhaps more of an issue, ie dubious survelillance of political opponents. In theory, that had been eliminated post-Hoover, and a new, apolitical agency created.. In practice, perhaps not. So regardless of left/right divides, is it really a good idea to give future governments the tools to fight even dirtier? Maybe they can use them to provide real evidence, maybe given all the 'anonymous sources' and leaks.. nobody will believe them.
Do you think they would do that if there was any chance they would be out of power next year? Do you think they'd tolerate all these back doors and US surveillance laws wielded by a Democrat? Obviously no!
Do people really want those tools wielded by Democrats? I guess we'll find out in November, and remember, vote early, vote often! Personally, and as a non-US citizen, I think the Democrat's biggest threat is Biden. But he's the DNC's choice, so they'll only have someone else to blame.
