Good news from the US:

https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/pentagon-alarmed-russia-gaining-sympathy-among-us-troops

Quote:
Perhaps American soldiers are simply sick and tired of the US military and intelligence machine's legacy of ashes across the globe and recognize the inconvenient fact that Russia most often has been on the complete opposite side of Washington's disastrous regime change wars.
...

The second annual Reagan National Defense Survey, completed in late October, found nearly half of armed services households questioned, 46%, said they viewed Russia as ally.

Overall, the survey found 28% of Americans identified Russia as an ally, up from 19% the previous year.

...While a majority, 71% of all Americans and 53% of military households, still views Russia as an enemy, the spike in pro-Russian sentiment has defense officials concerned.

...
Perhaps the "doubt and confusion" comes via trillion dollar endless wars of regime change and pointless occupations which cost American lives? In other words, this is not a 'Russia problem' at all, but lies too close to home for Washington pundits and pollsters to admit.


Big part of the turnaround, especially among Republicans, is because Fox News is now allowed sometimes to tell the truth. For example here Tucker Carlson about the staged syrian gas attacks

Good.

I'm quite tired of various forces embedded in our government agencies having a perpetual hard on for conflict with Russia.

Russia was recently an ally against ISIS. That's not the same as trusting them, though...

We need to ally with Russia against the real global threat.

China.

We like China more, they don't tell us how to rule our country (in terms of democracy, gay rights or whatever), and we don't tell them, they understand how peculiar the Ukraine's situation is for Russia, and we understand how it's the same for Hong Kong and South China Sea to them. Russia's and China's world views are so well aligned and complimentary that I basically see no even hypothetical possibility of Russia's realignment to the West.

Don't think, just consume product and get excited for next products.

God bless UPS and the troops that protect their valuable cargo

No they don't. They just tell US corporations how to act. And they hack government servers, and are intellectual thieves.

Their claims in the East China Sea are beyond ridiculous.

The American credo, isn't it? What wrong in consumption, since we had non of it for very long time, now it's time to rehabilitate.

After these corporations told them how not to act, if you mean the basketball case. Or if you mean apple, then they are driven by profits, nothing else, only profits command them what to do.
The US also hacks and steals oil, now what?

I'll tend to believe you if China grabs a major japanese island and you call for calm with Bejing.

If you want war with Russia, be my guest. Go sacrifice yourself. But don't try and use my fellow countrymen for your crusade.

We had our Putin murder in Berlin. Putin today officially announced the murdered person was a known terrorist in Russia and he named an attack in Russia and claimed he had demanded the extradition of the murdered person before. Nothing of it is real and everyone in Europe and in Russia now knows critics of Putin will pay a high price.

That just happened today with ukrainian president Zelensky present at the conference. They made progress towards peace journalists told us in the evening.

I am all for it to let be Crimea russian. This was a russian peninsula for hundreds of years. But peace is not easy in Europe.
