Whoever really believed the armistice that Lavrov and Kerry achieved for Syria a few days ago, was going to last, must have not paid any attention at all.

Not only was that cease-fire not respected by either Assad's forces or the so called "moderate rebels" (not to mention Daesh), but it was being actively violated in the very first hours after the agreement...

Hillary Clinton has said Russia can influence the US presidential election. Trump has actually openly welcomed the intervention of the Russian hackers, and though Putin denies any Kremlin involvement in the DNC email hacking (as he always would, in such situations; remember how he initially denied Russian involvement in Donbass), Trump has openly praised the act, and even (sarcastically? seriously? who knows at this point) called for Russia to go ahead and hack Hillary's emails, too.

The hybrid warfare seems to be stepping up a gear these days...

In a recent NYT interview, Trump warned he'd change things in NATO if he became president, the US likely refusing to defend those NATO members who refuse to fulfill their commitments to the alliance, namely investing at least 2% of their GDP into defense. His works may've caused a slight panic in some East European capitals, where it was interpreted almost as an outright rejection of the infamous Article 5 of the NATO code, which says any attack on any member automatically means a collective military response from the whole alliance. Now analysts also believe a possible Trump presidency would mean the money NATO member countries would have to pay would increase, which could mean another Trump idea could become fact: reducing the number of NATO members.

First off, Trump has said he admires Putin. Strong leader who knows what he's doing, and one who doesn't shy away from doing what's "right", no matter the consequences. Whatever "right" might mean - to me this sort of approach seems rather fascist-ish (to use another label we like to ascribe to Trump), but that might just be me.

It's not just about them admiring each other - there's the issue of money in politics...
