Putin is about to turn his attention to the American way of life

According to the most recent United States intelligence community report on international meddling in American elections, Russia is "using a range of measures" to interfere in the 2020 elections. It is not surprising that, after seeing the outsized returns on a minimum monetary investment to create chaos in the 2016 elections, Russian President Vladimir Putin would be executing the strategy again.

If current polls hold true - and they may not - and President Trump is defeated and a new administration with a more combative attitude toward Russia takes over, many people may feel we can all relax. In particular, people may be tempted to feel a sense of triumphalism at having "pushed back the Russian threat" and negated the ability of Putin to meddle in U.S. politics.

This would be a mistake.

A United States at war with itself and unable to participate internationally long has been Putin's goal. He has used the past few years to his advantage to give Russia an outsized role in world affairs - certainly a role out of proportion to Russia's economic, military or political strength. Syria, Iran, North Africa, Britain, Eastern Europe and the rise of the right wing in Western Europe and America are all hallmarks of Putin's success in promoting Russia's power and influence abroad.

1. Indeed, even if we beat putin and his traitors, almost half the country will work toward

embracing white people in Russia over all minorities here, and they will never stop.
