Maybe I need to take off this tinfoil hat I'm wearing

But would it be within the realm of possibility that Trump and Putin were scheming to gin up a skirmish in Afghanistan - right before the election - greatly enhancing Trump's ability to obtain by fiat a hold on the presidency beyond its expiration date -

and that the intelligence community, aware of the diabolical plot they were hatching, leaked this report to deflect it to the knowing eyes of the American people?

I know, I know.

1. Sad that it's even plausible.

2. I am more worried about a conflict with China at this point.

I know nothing for certain, but there are rumblings.

3. Sometimes I think that Trump has

a compulsion to do the worst, most base things he can think of. It's like he's in some devil-worship cult (not talking about Satanists here) who try to do just the opposite of what a morally upstanding person would do.

He thinks, "sell myself to Russia and betray my country? Sounds great! Now let me see if I can get some of our troops killed."

I'm trying to make sense of all of this and that's what I came up with. I used to think he did it all for the money, but I think it's more than that. He's evil and unspeakably depraved.

5. He stirs up trouble so he alone can fix it. He's been trying to fix everything inside

himself that his father couldn't. He has a broken soul.

6. I've Been Warning People To Watch Out For It For A Long Time Now.......

..........but even I think it's too late for him now. Anything he does now will reek of desperation and the vast majority of the American people will see right through it (his faithful 20% will never see through anything he does, but they're too far gone now anyway). All of the "reasoned and deliberate" things he's been doing the last few months have fallen flat because most Americans are waking up to the fact that he's insincere and ONLY doing these things because he wants to be re-elected.

So again I say, if he tries to salvage his image by starting a war, I think it will backfire on him spectacularly, just like the whole photo op in front of the church did. I think the vast majority of Americans have seen through his bullshit and have already made up their minds about him.

Just my opinion, but I think at this point, he KNOWS he's going to lose, and his one main focus is building up his "brand" so he can leave office and step into something profitable (I believe he's going to start his own TV network where he'll appear every night and try to take things even further right than Faux). That and keeping his ass out of prison.
