#3 Donald Trump. Slavishly subordinate? To anyone?That's some lefty wishful thinking ... they are just pissed he is not subordinate to them (nor, apparently, is his new AG).

#4 I would think the last thing Putin wants is a strong American economy and an America that becomes the worlds largest oil producer. Trump has delivered both.

#5 Peters jumped on the Never-Trumper bandwagon and is now relegated to the lowest-rated airport monitor Cable News Network

#6 Brilliant mind, author, speaker, nearly on a level of VDH. I'm withholding judgement on this one. I think he must of snapped.

#9 GIGO... It does seem like a case where one, or several, flawed premises can cause an entirely logical framework to wander off into La-La Land. Ralph Peters seems to be acting like a computer trying to "divide by zero" over and over again hoping to get a rational answer this time.

#10 I still remember his book Red Army fondly. But now that I recall he had the Soviets win the war for Europe (as opposed to Team Yankee and Red Storm Rising). Ralph has always sided with the losers it seems.

#11 I vote for / second "snapped". A shame.

#12 From Woodrow’s second link, the key bit, I think, from Colonel Peters’ letter to his colleagues explaining why he left Fox:

And by the way: As an intelligence professional, I can tell you that the Steele dossier rings true--that's how the Russians do things.

I understand being an upstanding professional, and therefore trusting that your colleagues in the profession are also upstanding. But really — how much of a dupe must he now feel, poor man. That's exactly how I felt when I learned that Global Warming was about manipulating science for political ends, and I had not devoted my life nor derived my identity from the thing.

#14 Russia just quadrupled it's monthly borrowing to 6Billion USD.

He's not very good at being a puppet of Putin is he?
