What do we know about Russia, right now… about Russia today? I mean, given all the hype and hyperventilating among our major news organizations, pronouncements from congress and their counsels, together with the constant whining of late night TV hosts day-after-day, hour-after-hour, what are we Americans supposed to believe about the great Russian Bear? Is everything we hear just ‘fake news’ or propaganda, as Trump would have us believe? Or is there even a scintilla of truth hidden here?

    There is something of a human problem at the very base of your emailed article. Yes!!!! Russia does have many problems … starting with it’s government, BUT that very problem applies to all nations on the planet. Governing in-and-of-itself IS THE PROBLEM.

    We think we need them … In reality we don’t … BUT “there’s the rub”.
    Psychologically we THINK we need government to protect us from the ‘OTHER’ guy … little realizing “We … (all of us) … Are The Other Guy.
    You’re thinking here is that the ‘OTHER guy’ is Russia.
