Check the temperature in Hell, there is a time I actually agree with you!
George W Bush’s invasion of Iraq left a bad image of the United States abroad and I have heard lots simili-rebels here who believe in “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” and fall into that Putin-cheering just because he’s not Bush…
It is as stupid to think the Russians are the good guys or to think that republicans are the good guys.
It’s called international politics. There are no good guys, anywhere. Only armies and billions of dollars of ressources at stake.
No good guys, just stupid humans on both sides.
