My god, you people are unhinged. Seriously. Do you not see how this type of rhetoric is common, historically, to the mob mentality?

While Donald Trump’s budding bromance with Vladimir Putin is well known — the two men have called for improved relations between Washington and Moscow — Putin’s hostility towards Clinton draws less attention.

Hillary is starting to scare me with her hard line towards Russia!
With this train wreck of a presidential campaign, I've not noticed how much our relationship with Russia has deteriorated to where some say it's even worse than a new cold war and we are very close to a possible conflict. I blame the media for this as well for being so fixated on every damn thing Trump says or does that we don't get much reporting about this.

I really noticed her going after Russia in the last debate. She's known to be a hawk. I worry that if she gets in, she would spark a war with Russia. Trump is actually giving them the benefit of the doubt but then Trump would only be emotionally invested when someone insults him and so far, Russia hasn't, so that isn't really saying much.

I rcroy thought Hillary was the safe, sane choice here and now I'm beginning to wonder.
I hope I am wrong about her but I wish she'd tone it down, calm things down and try to make peace instead of escalating it.

Someone doesn't know who the real hawk is.

As much as I can't stand Hillary "then we should bomb them the hell away" Clinton, one thing I have ZERO concern about is her willingness to use military force, if necessary.

Which, given the current state of the race, is a good thing.

Why would Putin even want to influence the US presidential election? There are several reasons Russia might want stir up trouble in an already contentious campaign.

Putin thinks the US already did it to him first
As far as Putin and his inner circle are concerned, it was the United States that moved first to meddle in Russian politics when Putin decided to return for a third term. In 2011-’12, Russian demonstrators took to the streets to protest electoral violations in the parliamentary elections

Putin thinks and acts like a KGB operative
Putin also knows how to play the media. Russia already has a long tradition of propaganda and information warfare, but Putin is a master manipulator. Early in his presidency, Putin described the press as an instrument that he would deploy in the service of the state just like the Hillary operatives.

Does not fear weak leaders
There is much speculation that Putin may see Donald Trump as someone he can do business with, and that he has a grudge against Hillary Clinton. Trump’s praise of Putin as a “strong leader” is a notable break with the general trend of US politicians and opinion leaders castigating Putin and criticizing Russia, and Putin has made seemingly complimentary comments about Trump in return.

We must keep him off the ability to use nukes at all costs. We can only imagine what disasters could happen if he is insulted and nukes are on the table.

Most people want peace and do not want to suffer a nuclear Holocaust because of Trump's hurt feelings.
With Trump, we have a 50/50 chance. With hillary, we have absolutely no chance.

Its bad enough that he wants to eliminate all restrictions on bribe money in politics by nominating clones of Justice Scalia to the supreme court. This will usher in 30 years of politics where the people would have essentially no say and the ultra rich donor class will ram policy down our throats whether we like it or not.

But even worse is his sociopathy. Thats the really scary part. We do not want to risk our lives for Trump's hurt feelings.
Give it up, it has been proven over and over again Don was against the Iraq war. Just stop with your lies... None of what you state as facts are true. You are a gullible sucker

Putin is expected to run for a fourth term. The Kremlin does not want a repeat of the protests of 2011-’12, and certainly no pronouncements from the US about whether the elections are free and fair or whether Putin has a genuine popular mandate for his next presidency.

Against this backdrop, the information from the DNC files underscores for the Russian public, and the outside world, that US party politics is just as dirty as in Russia or anywhere else.

Irrespective of whether Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton is elected, from Moscow’s perspective, at the end of this ruinous political campaign, the new US president will look as wounded as Putin did when he took office again in 2012.
