The problem is , IF you actually listen to what he says , he makes too much sense a lot of the time , whereas our explanations seem reactionary and paranoia based . Trump seems to be the only candidate that knows the cold war is over , and doesnt want a resurrection of it . He ( Putin ) definitely sees things in his own way , some are spot on , some not , but thats to be expected , even our allies dont see the same situation the way we do sometimes . He is right about it being better when the Soviet Union was still around . With the bi-polar world system , things were much more simple , we were the good guys and the commies were the bad guys , it made things more black and white , less complicated for everybody . At the time they were indeed the aggressor , such as communisms survival depends on . We were indeed liberators and defenders at the time , now nobody can be trusted , not them , not us . In the 2nd vid , you can hear some old style rhetoric , kind of amusing .
