“Is Russia an enemy of the United States?” NBC’s Kasie Hunt demanded of Ted Cruz. Replied the runner-up for the GOP nomination, “Russia is a significant adversary. Putin is a KGB thug.”

To Hillary Clinton running mate Tim Kaine, the revelation that Donald Trump Jr., entertained an offer from the Russians for dirt on Clinton could be considered “treason.”

Treason is giving aid and comfort to an enemy in a time of war.

Are we really at war with Russia? Is Russia really our enemy?

“Why Russia is a Hostile Power” is the title of today’s editorial in The Washington Post that seeks to explain why Middle America should embrace the Russophobia of our capital city:

“Vladimir Putin adheres to a set of values that are antithetical to bedrock American values. He favors spheres of influence over self-determination; corruption over transparency; and repression over democracy.”

Yet, accommodating a sphere of influence for a great power is exactly what FDR and Churchill did with Stalin, and every president from Truman to George H. W. Bush did with the Soviet Union.

When East Germans, Hungarians, Czechs, Poles rose up against Communist regimes, no U.S. president intervened. For those nations were on the other side of the Yalta line agreed to in 1945.

Bush I and James Baker even accused Ukrainians of “suicidal nationalism” for contemplating independence from Russia.

When did support for spheres of influence become un-American?

As for supporting “corruption over transparency,” ex-Georgia President Mikheil Saakashvili resigned in disgust as governor of Odessa in November, accusing Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, our man in Kiev, of supporting corruption.

As for favoring “repression over democracy,” would that not apply to our NATO ally President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey, our Arab ally Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi of Egypt, and our Philippine ally Rodrigo Duterte? Were U.S. Cold War allies like the Shah of Iran and Gen. Augusto Pinochet of Chile all Jeffersonian Democrats? Have we forgotten our recent history?

The Post brought up the death in prison of lawyer-activist Sergei Magnitsky in 2009. Under the Magnitsky Act of 2012, Congress voted sanctions on Russia’s elites.

Yet China’s lone Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Liu Xiaobo, sentenced to 11 years in prison for championing democracy, died Thursday of liver cancer, with police in his hospital room. Communist dictator Xi Jinping, who makes Putin look like Justin Trudeau, would not let the dying man go.

Will Magnitsky Act sanctions be slammed on China? Don’t bet on it. Too much trade. Congress will do what comes naturally — kowtow. Yet our heroic Senate voted 98-2 to slam new sanctions on Russia.

What are the roots of this hostility to Russia and hatred of Putin, whom a Fox analyst called “as bad as Hitler”?

During the Cold War, every president sought detente with a USSR that was arguably the most blood-soaked regime of the century.

When the Cold War ended in December 1991, the Soviet Union had dissolved into 15 nations. Moscow had given up her empire, a third of her territory, and half the population of the USSR. Marxist-Leninist ideology was dead. An epochal change had taken place.

Yet hostility to Russia and hatred of Putin seem to exceed anything some of us remember from the worst days of the Cold War.

Putin’s Russia is called imperialist, though Estonia, next door, which Russia could swallow in one gulp, has been free for 25 years.

Russia invaded Georgia. Well, yes, after Georgia invaded the seceded province of South Ossetia and killed Russian peacekeepers.

Russia has taken back Crimea from Ukraine. True, but only after a U.S.-backed coup in Kiev replaced the elected pro-Russian regime.

ORDER IT NOW

Russia has intervened to back Bashar Assad in Syria. Yes, but only after our insurgent allies collaborated with al-Qaida and ISIS to bring him down. Is Russia not allowed to support an ally, recognized by the U.N., which provides its only naval base on the Med?

Russia has meddled in our election. And we have meddled in the affairs of half a dozen nations with “color-coded revolutions.” The cry of “regime change!” may daily be heard in the U.S. Capitol.

Putin is not Pope Francis. But he is not Stalin; he is not Hitler; he is not Mao; and Russia today is not the USSR. Putin is an autocrat cut from the same bolt of cloth as the Romanov czars.

His cooperation is crucial to the peace of the world, the freedom of the Baltic States, an end to the Syrian civil war, tranquility in the Persian Gulf, and solving the North Korean crisis.

While our tectonic plates may rub against one another, we are natural allies. The Russia of Tolstoy, Pushkin, Solzhenitsyn and the Orthodox Church belongs with the West.

If America stumbles into a war with Russia that all our Cold War presidents avoided, the Russia baiters and Putin haters will be put in same circle of hell by history as the idiot war hawks of 1914 and the three blind men of Versailles in 1919.

Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of a new book, “Nixon’s White House Wars: The Battles That Made and Broke a President and Divided America Forever.”

  2. Vladimir Putin is not a thug. The real political thugs reside in Congress such as McCain, Graham, Cruz, Pelosi, Schumer, just to name a few, and not to speak of the heads of the CIA, NSA and the other criminal organizations.

    Russiaphobia and Putin-hatred have reached unimaginable proportions within the Beltway. The Hartland America, however, couldn’t care less. The whole Russian bashing is hypocritical and just disgusting.

    The entire Russian meddling-business is a media-spin. 95 per cent of it is anti-Trump and pro-Clinton and Obama. Didn’t the US government intervene massively in the Yeltsin reelection? So far, not a single evidence proves Russian involvement in the US election. It’s all baloney.

    The real reason for the Putin-bashing lies in his actions taken after he succeeds the criminal and corrupt Yeltsin gang. During the fateful 10-year term as Russia’s president, an unprecedented robbery by a mafia-style network composed of the CIA, George Soros, and his Harvard-Boys together with the KGB and the Yeltsin-clan took place.

    After Putin had become President, he stopped the plundering of Russia at once and started to rebuild Russia from the scratch to its relatively political important role in international affairs. Without the collapse of the Soviet Union, which was the greatest disaster, the US political class could not act so recklessly and turn the Middle East into chaos.

    Perhaps the thugs in Washington should put their own house in order before slinging mud at other heads of state!

Maybe also invite P-ssy Riot to the Kremlin for photos.

    , @Achmed E. Newman
    I don't know for sure what kind of meddling happened. I'd lean against any damn think I heard from the Lyin' Press though, but here's the thing: I have tuned out both TV via cutting cable, and the internet, via just plain not clicking, for YEARS now, so I have not received any part of this LP barrage of anti-Russian artillery.

    So, I am in general in agreement with you Mark, on this (oh-oh), and I don't know why Mr. Buchanan threw that line in there (and his stupid Pope line - I think PB is Catholic, so he's supposed to officially respect that Commie bastard - "Pope" Francis, I mean). However, let me put this out there. From what I've learned on internet sites that are worth reading - Unz, VDare, Zerohedge, LewRockwell etc. - all these Lyin' Presstitutes are claiming is that the Russians gave out information against the Dems and the Hlidabeast. Even if that WERE the case, so what? More information should be better, right? Trans-freakin-parency! Nobody ever even claims that Russian info. about the Hildabeast and Dems was lies.

    As, Pat and Ludwig Watzal point out, the US has been involved in a great many (too many to count on one's fingers) DIRECT interferences in foreign elections of the years, providing disinformation, propping up a candidate from stratch*, or just rigging the whole thing.

    Nice reply Avery. The millionaire Senators club is not the crowd I'd go to for advice on anything. It's funny how many of them become multi-millionaires while in office and those that were all ready multi-millionaires end up with 10 x the assets when they leave or are kicked out or finally thankfully die off (talking to you, Ted breast-stroke Kennedy, RIH).

    It'd be pretty hard to bribe or blackmail people like that - they are beyond reproach. Just try to reproach one of them (maybe in the bathroom in Minneapolis Airport) and see how that goes.

    "Putin is not Pope Francis." -- Thank God for that. If Putin acted like Francis, he would fire or smoke out the conservatives in his staff, replace the Orthodox liturgy for Lutheran, and flood Russia with "refugees", while making incoherent speeches about mercy and acceptance. Maybe also invite P-ssy Riot to the Kremlin for photos.

    Sorry, Excal, I wrote my comment before reading yours. Same point – different levels of snark.

    Russia has meddled in our election.

    Please Pat stop with that nonsense. Even the Congressman moron that Tucker Carlson had on last night just kept babling about stories on RT.com and Russian trolls. This is not meddling. It is a cable and internet channel putting out it's own version of the news and the person consuming it is supposed to try and verify if the claims are accurate. Are Russian trolls bad and Hasbara trolls good? They are neither, they are the same as RT.com, you have to verify everything they claim.

    I don’t know for sure what kind of meddling happened. I’d lean against any damn think I heard from the Lyin’ Press though, but here’s the thing: I have tuned out both TV via cutting cable, and the internet, via just plain not clicking, for YEARS now, so I have not received any part of this LP barrage of anti-Russian artillery.

    So, I am in general in agreement with you Mark, on this (oh-oh), and I don’t know why Mr. Buchanan threw that line in there (and his stupid Pope line – I think PB is Catholic, so he’s supposed to officially respect that Commie bastard – “Pope” Francis, I mean). However, let me put this out there. From what I’ve learned on internet sites that are worth reading – Unz, VDare, Zerohedge, LewRockwell etc. – all these Lyin’ Presstitutes are claiming is that the Russians gave out information against the Dems and the Hlidabeast. Even if that WERE the case, so what? More information should be better, right? Trans-freakin-parency! Nobody ever even claims that Russian info. about the Hildabeast and Dems was lies.

    As, Pat and Ludwig Watzal point out, the US has been involved in a great many (too many to count on one’s fingers) DIRECT interferences in foreign elections of the years, providing disinformation, propping up a candidate from stratch*, or just rigging the whole thing.

    Hey Pat - how much is Putin paying you write this spineless, Russophilic garbage? There's a good reason that 48 out of 50 US senators, that usually can't agree about what day of the week it is, recently all agreed to extend the sanctions against Russia. Next to Oliver Stone, you must be commanding the largest paycheck!

It’s funny how many of them become multi-millionaires while in office and those that were all ready multi-millionaires end up with 10 x the assets when they leave or are kicked out or finally thankfully die off (talking to you, Ted breast-stroke Kennedy, RIH).

    It’d be pretty hard to bribe or blackmail people like that – they are beyond reproach. Just try to reproach one of them (maybe in the bathroom in Minneapolis Airport) and see how that goes.

    Vladimir Putin is not a thug. The real political thugs reside in Congress such as McCain, Graham, Cruz, Pelosi, Schumer, just to name a few, and not to speak of the heads of the CIA, NSA and the other criminal organizations.

    Russiaphobia and Putin-hatred have reached unimaginable proportions within the Beltway. The Hartland America, however, couldn't care less. The whole Russian bashing is hypocritical and just disgusting.

    The entire Russian meddling-business is a media-spin. 95 per cent of it is anti-Trump and pro-Clinton and Obama. Didn't the US government intervene massively in the Yeltsin reelection? So far, not a single evidence proves Russian involvement in the US election. It's all baloney.

    The real reason for the Putin-bashing lies in his actions taken after he succeeds the criminal and corrupt Yeltsin gang. During the fateful 10-year term as Russia's president, an unprecedented robbery by a mafia-style network composed of the CIA, George Soros, and his Harvard-Boys together with the KGB and the Yeltsin-clan took place.

    After Putin had become President, he stopped the plundering of Russia at once and started to rebuild Russia from the scratch to its relatively political important role in international affairs. Without the collapse of the Soviet Union, which was the greatest disaster, the US political class could not act so recklessly and turn the Middle East into chaos.

    Perhaps the thugs in Washington should put their own house in order before slinging mud at other heads of state!

    “Russia is a significant adversary. Putin is a KGB thug.”

    Did top American pols go around calling the USSR an “adversary”? Perhaps more to the point, did Democrats let them get away with it?

    To Hillary Clinton running mate Tim Kaine, the revelation that Donald Trump Jr., entertained an offer from the Russians for dirt on Clinton could be considered “treason.”

    Nonsense. Democrats are being openly hypocritical on this, holding GOP to standards they don’t even remotely meet themselves. Lynch let the “Russian spy” through without a visa. Hillary met with Russians willy-nilly. Big Media met with Russians on several occasions to get opposition research on GOPers (Big Media carries water for Democrats, so the Dems don’t have to get their hands dirty). Hussein & Hillary conducted high-level back-door negotiations with the Russians. & on and on and on. The whole thing is a nakedly partisan & hypocritical dog & pony show from Big Media (D, USA).

    “Vladimir Putin adheres to a set of values that are antithetical to bedrock American values. He favors spheres of influence over self-determination; corruption over transparency; and repression over democracy.”

    “Putin does not celebrate men who suck cocks, men who chop off their cocks & balls to suck cocks, men who “marry” other men & groom their “children” as their homosexual pets, women who eat pussy, women who pretend to be men & eat pussy, women who groom… etc. These are all core American values and as long as Putin refuses to celebrate them, Russia should be nuked.”

    Big part of it: white country. All white countries must kneel before ZOG.

    Yet hostility to Russia and hatred of Putin seem to exceed anything some of us remember from the worst days of the Cold War.

    This is far too faint. Big Media never went anywhere near as ape over Russia when it was USSR, the same regime that killed tens of millions of its own people. Democrats are lower than a turd. Hell the whole Senate is lower than a turd.

    Russia has taken back Crimea from Ukraine. True, but only after a U.S.-backed coup in Kiev replaced the elected pro-Russian regime.

    The idiots need to get over Crimea. It’s Russian territory & that isn’t going to change for the foreseeable future. Russians making this official in the wake of events in Ukraine was inevitable, & everyone knows it. America would have done exactly the same in their position (at least; in reality we’d just invade Panama & install a friendly regime if they give us any shit).

    Russia has meddled in our election.

    “To Hell with Jorge Bergoglio.”

    Dude, he’s the Pope. Show some respect.

    He’s a heretic and a Mammon-worshiper. That is the proper respect.

    I don’t watch TV, so I don’t know, but word in the alt-right is that Carlson is fully red-pilled. I say if that is true, his days on TV are numbered.

    Re El Dato’s linked antiwar piece:

    For the neocons, it’s always 1938. The enemy is always the reincarnation of Hitler, and anyone who questions the wisdom of war is denounced as an “appeaser” in the fashion of Neville Chamberlain or Lindbergh. Yet no one ever examines and challenges the assumption behind this rhetorical trope, which is that war with the enemy of the moment – whether it be Saddam Hussein, the Iranian ayatollahs, or Vladimir Putin – is inevitable and imminent. If Putin is Hitler, and Russia is Nazi Germany, then we must take the analogy all the way and assume that we’ll be at war with the Kremlin shortly.

    Maybe the solution is to finally dismantle the “good war” WWII bullshit that still thrives today solely because it serves ZOG/globalist interests.

    Peters has no real argument, and so he resorts to the method that’s become routine in American politics: accuse your opponent of being a foreign agent. Tucker, says Peters, is an “apologist” not only for Putin but also for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Again, Tucker answers smears with cold logic:

    We’ll know the battle’s won when the Carlsons of the world snap right back “you’re an Israeli agent, you take your orders from Tel Aviv, you’re an AIPAC apologist.”

    Indeed, Trump’s “America First” skepticism when it comes to foreign wars made the crucial difference in the election, as a recent study shows: communities hard hit by our endless wars put him over the top in the key states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. This, and not “Russian meddling,” handed him the White House.

    Anti-war types always ignore everything that doesn’t confirm their mania. No, it wasn’t anti-adventurism that won Trump the Presidency, it was anti-immigrationism, the economy, and anti-Hillary/elite sentiment.

    https://www.voterstudygroup.org/reports/2016-elections/the-five-types-trump-voters

    Four issues distinguish Trump voters from non-Trump voters: attitudes toward Hillary Clinton, evaluations of the economy, views about illegal immigration, and views about Muslim immigration.

    Immigration, economy, anti-elitist. Anti-war nowhere to be found.

    BOOT: What have I been wrong about, Tucker? What have I been wrong about?

    It takes a Jew/MENA/South Asian to have Boot’s record and ask that question on national television.

    Tucker keeps asking why Boot thinks Russia is the main threat to the United States, and Boot finally answers: “Because they are the only country that can destroy us with a nuclear strike.”

    Then let’s invade China/India/Pakistan/Israel/Britain/France as well. It’s the only way to be sure.

    At which point, Tucker avers: “Okay. I am beginning to think that your judgment has been clouded by ideology, I don’t fully understand where it’s coming from but I will let our viewers decide.”

    Which is, sadly, as close as anyone in Big Media can come to calling Boot what he is: a warmongering ZOG Jew.

    I know where it’s coming from. Tucker’s viewers may not know that Boot is a Russian immigrant, who – like so many of our Russophobic warmongers – arrived on our shores with his hatred of the motherland packed in his suitcase. There’s a whole platoon of them: (((Cathy Young))), who recently released her polemic arguing for a new cold war with Russia in the pages of Reason magazine; Atlantic writer and tweeter of anti-Trump obscenities (((Julia Ioffe))), whose visceral hatred for her homeland is a veritable monomania; (((Gary Kasparov))), the former chess champion who spends most of his energy plotting revenge against Vladimir Putin and a Russian electorate that has consistently rejected his hopeless presidential campaigns, and I could go on but you get the picture.

    Yeah we get the (((picture))).

  58. Putin is not Pope Francis. But he is not Stalin; he is not Hitler; he is not Mao; and Russia today is not the USSR. Putin is an autocrat cut from the same bolt of cloth as the Romanov czars.

    What IS the same re the demonization of Putin, like the demonization of Stalin and the demonization of Hitler is the people who are doing the demonizing.

    And if it is true that Putin is not Hitler etc., maybe it’s the case that Hitler was not “Hitler” until the demonizer started their dirty work.

    Incidentally, those demonizers considered Pope Pius XII cut from the same cloth as Hitler.

    (oh, and wait a minute: FDR and Churchill just luv’d Uncle Joe Stalin.)
