    I'd like to agree with you, but unfortunately, we live in a time where Mr Putin is killing his journalistic dissent, and as much as he wants, the reality is Trump will never have that power in the short time he has left.
    a resurgent russia is a lot less dangerous than a demented reality tv star at the helm of the world's largest nuclear arsenal.

    but we're just asked to accept that, even when said demented individual seems to think that you can buy pieces of countries willy nilly.
    No matter how badly Cheeto Mussolini fucks things up, he’s not there forever. I’m not saying the next guy will be a lot better or anything, just that there is a certain impermanence to the American system. Not so much with the way comrade Putin and his financiers see the world.
    yea, so you're going to elect somebody even more demented in 2024 to replace him.
    meh

    He might not be there forever, but the U.S.' bad reputation/untrustwortiness he created will remain for quite some while, I'm afraid. Willy-nilly disregarding international treaties that former governments negotiated is a sure way to burn your reputation on the international stage.

    That will be the excuse, yes.

    It will really be German and French banks screeching at a socialist and a prairie populist

    German and French banks probably have a future of screeching anyway considering their levels of leverage and all the terrible debt on their books.

    Russian nuclear accident: Medics fear 'radioactive patients'

    Russian medics who treated radiation victims after a military explosion in the Arctic had no protection and now fear they were irradiated themselves.

    Two of the medics in Arkhangelsk spoke to BBC Russian about the victims' evacuation, on condition of anonymity.

    Five nuclear engineers died on 8 August when an "isotope-fuel" engine blew up at the Nyonoksa test range, officials said. Six other people were injured.

    Trump already basically did just that. That's at least the impression his European allies have. The U.S. is no longer considered to be a reliable partner, when it comes to fulfilling the NATO defense pact/duties. Him complaining about the military spending*) is actually one of the few things he got right, though.

    Which somewhat is a good thing, as it forced the Europeans to get their act together in terms of organizing their military in away that it could handle at least a minor engagement themselves a bit.

    *) Although the way "military spending" is defined leaves lots of room for stupid decisions, i.e. if a country just raises the wages of the soldiers enough that it reaches the agreed upon 2% of GDP for its military budget, contractual obligations are formally fulfilled ... while in reality it doesn't increase the capabilities of that army.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel said her country must take “pains” to improve its armed forces amid U.S. threats to move American bases from Germany unless Berlin boosts defense spending.

    Merkel played down U.S. diplomatic warnings about the possibility of relocating some of the roughly 35,000 troops in Germany to neighboring Poland.

    “I think that the German (bases) are good locations for the American soldiers,” she said after a meeting Wednesday with Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda, as cited by the German t-online news website.

    “There are good reasons for the (U.S.) bases here in Germany but at the same time we know that we must take the pains to get the German military in better shape.”

    Merkel's bluster has disappeared now that the US has fully embraced Poland.

    I think even with a reasonable president you will have to become more self-sufficient. More of the military will be diverted to the pacific as time goes on

    Germans are more reliable partners than US to us, it's just our political elite who grew up worshipping US during Cold War can't see past this. They love US so much that even they adapted the worst aspects of capitalism economy during transformation, taking example from Reagan and such.

    This is an idiotic situation, I can't see US continuing this line of politics when someone else is elected there.

    It will be less antagonistic, but the same basic disagreements will continue to exist

    I also think it's fair to predict that we won't have a foreign policy focused President for most of the next decade, because America is very, very sick and probably needs surgery.

    We won't have an incompetent idiot game show host and the unamerican morons he surrounds himself with, who, with the full help of the conservative movement in America, are somehow *innocently* achieving all of Putin's foreign policy goals for him, for much longer, I think.
    meh

    Uh? That's exactly reason to focus on foreign policy in politics. Poverty -> find external enemy.

    Do you really think Bernie or Liz will give a flying fuck about going back to 20th Century American realpolitik. I personally don't think it's going to get much attention under either of them, and that's probably a good thing. They probably won't do the purposeful, treasonous damage that Putin's pets in Trump and the russian-backed Republican reds have done to our foreign policy and our allies, but we're not really going to be doing any other than focusing inward and fixing the rest of the damage these retards are doing to everything.

    If an establishment Dem gets in, expect massive propping up with NATO and a possible hotter cold war with Russia, and if Cheeto Shitler win again, then we basically execute Comrade Putin's foreign policy, and western civilization is effectively done. Probably human civilization, tbh.
