The worst thing that an American President could do is to provoke a nuclear war with Russia.
I think that, based on her record and rhetoric, Hillary Clinton would put the USA at greater risk of nuclear war than her predecessors.
As adviser to her husband in the 1990s and as Secretary of State, she was a voice for war. Her campaign web site is about her credentials as a war hawk. It is no coincidence that so war hawks of the George W. Bush support her for President.
Her protege, Victoria Nuland, assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs, promotes economic warfare and covert warfare against Russia, while promoting regime change in Ukraine and attempting to draw Ukraine and Georgia into an anti-Russian alliance. This is as dangerous as Khrushchev’s placing missiles in Cuba in 1962.
Pro-Russian news sources predict war if Hillary Clinton is elected. I think Russian fears are significant because they could be a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you think somebody is poised to attack you, you’re going to be ready to strike at them before they do.
Vladimir Putin would rather see Donald Trump elected. Trump admires Putin and says he wants to improve relations with Russia. But Trump is so erratic there’s no telling what he actually would do. Trump is not an acceptable alternative to Clinton.
I do not admire Putin or Putin’s Russia. Too many of his opponents and critics die mysteriously. But I see no basic conflict of interest between Russia and the USA nor any benefit to the people of either country in a US-Russian cold war.
