Peace with Russia is fine so long as it’s not under Putin’s regime. Russia’s broke, there’s total political apathy among the people because “hey surprise Putin wins again” and they’re doing slimy deals to improve their land holdings to increase their oil export as they don’t benefit from petrodollar.
The USA benefits from the petrodollar relationship with OPEC and Saudis for our financial stability and that’s not changing.
I don’t like US foreign policy and never did. But I sure as heck don’t feel a need to improve Russia’s standing, particularly when decisions affected domestic policy such as treatment of our own.
The reason why a focus on Russia matters for the USA at this point in history is that Russia has its fingers (via financial backing) of not only government officials at the federal level but also at state (governor, including here in my state of Florida) and at even lower levels.
No other nation has as much direct influence at such levels and they’ve been working on this for a long time. This is known and should be no surprise.
Main difference with Trump /Gulliani / a lot of the state level corrupt etc is that they’re naked and stupid and sloppy about their connections. I’m actually glad for that as it’s bringing a lot of this shit out into the open.
