    Ralph - Important events like this go by completely unchecked in this administration. The Senate has basically given itself over to Trump at this point.

    Intermediate nuclear missiles on continental Europe is a huge development that only gives Putin more leverage. He isn't afraid to use it.

    This coming from a Cold Warrior who always felt the Russian Superman military threat was overblown. Our tactical battlefield equipment is superior and Putin knows it...this puts him on a much more even playing field.

    Who really wins in an Arms Race II? Three guesses and they all start with Boeing, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Northrup Grumman, General Dynamics, Ball Aerospace, etc.

    I wonder what Trump will serve up next from Putin's Wish List?

    joewillie, Trump supporters see Putin and Russians as being closer to their social ideals than they see the liberals being. Scary for America.

    Good job Trump. Europe will soon be held hostage by your buddy Vlad Putin.

    No wonder you want your meetings with him off the record.

    Putin helped control East Berlin as a KGB agent until the wall came down (another example of an ineffective wall btw). Russians have not forgotten their embarrassment over losing the Cold War.

    Indeed, they've never stopped fighting it and won't until their government changes forms again.

    What don't Trump supporters get about this?
