On the Fact that the Left Made Fun of Romney in 2012 for Proclaiming that Russia Was Our Biggest Strategic Challenge Moving Forward and Now a Shitload of These Same Leftists Are Falling All Over Themselves Demonizing Russia, Sabre-Rattling, and Claiming that Trump Isn't Being Hard ENOUGH on Them - Quick Addendum

And, yes, the leftists are just as wrong today as Romney was in 2012. Russia is NOT a threat to the U.S. in that a) their beef with Ukraine is none of our damned business (with what the U.S. and N.A.T.O. having done already probably making the matter much worse) and b) their actions in Syria have actually helped us in terms of debilitating ISIS (we still hate ISIS, no?). I mean, I understand that there are elements on the right AND the left (the neocons, the Military Industrial Complex, numerous factions in the government that are literally drooling at the prospect of consolidating more power, etc.) that see another "cold war" with Russia as good for "business" but we've already been there and done it and only an insane moron (can you say, John McCain and Hillary Clinton?) would ever want to pull that stunt again.
