Lost in all the election nonsense is the fact the fecklessness of America’s worst president has so emboldened our enemies that they now parade warships through the English Channel.
The Kremlin is sending the full might of its Northern Fleet and part of the Baltic Fleet to reinforce a final assault on the city of Aleppo in a fortnight, according to Western intelligence.
The assault on the city will also serve to highlight US inaction in the run-up to election day and may aid Donald Trump.
Royal Navy warships are due to escort a group of eight Russian warships, including the country’s only aircraft carrier, as they sail past the UK on their way to the Mediterranean.
The media has been infatuated with this “Putin wants to aid Trump” nonsense for months now. I’m not buying it. While Putin may prefer Trump to Hillary – and really, who wouldn’t – I believe his unbridled assertiveness has more to do with insulting Barack Obama than assisting either of the candidates.
Russia sees Obama for what he is; an unqualified 98-pound weakling who would rather golf and smoke weed than govern. Embarrassing King Putt is Putin’s favorite hobby.
