Why The Russian Alliance Is Not So Bad In My Opinion.
I understand Russia and the United States have had a bad relationship throughout history and there are fundamental differences between our countries, but would it not be better to ally with russia then constantly try to be on the brink of war with them? I look at it like a parent or friend situation. Russia is not going to listen to the United States because it simulates a teen rebelling against a parent. If America was a “friend” to russia, they would be more open to talks, willing to atleast listen to the United States, maybe even allow us to influence some of their culture. I think negotiations would go smoother and tensions would die down a little bit.
Listen I understand there are people way smarter than me and professions dedicated to finding all the facts that support the counter argument. I get it, as a nation we don’t like russia, but with everything going on at the moment, I think trying to calm tensions all across the world should be a high priority. There are bad people in this world, but sometimes it feels as though we focus too much on one thing and get lost. I mean just look at the news, broadcasters are still talking about “russians hacking the election”. Was russia capable of releasing a whole bunch of emails that could have persuaded people to go with trump? Possibly, but with everything trump has said in his lifetime, that did not dissuade his supporters from going out and voting.
It has also been proven that the actual voting poles were not hacked. So what did russia really do? What is the media really trying to say? That the american people were hacked? Essentially Russia prayed on the elections heightened emotions during a stressful time for our country. But that is exactly what the candidates are doing, when they attack each other during the election. Remember when Marco Rubio talked about “Donald Trump’s hands”. The fact that people are trying to use the “hacking of election” argument is tiring, especially when they attacked trump for saying it was impossible to hack the election, just months before when he said “Mexicans Were Voting Illegally”. There were experts, beyond experts that said it was impossible to hack the election, and voter fraud is even less probably. Now the very thing they said was impossible, is now possible because Hillary Clinton did not win.
Will an Alliance with russia all of sudden fix years of tension? Of course not! Will it stop Russia Agendas? No, But it does allow the United States to start focusing on other things while trying to build a new relationship with a country we have long had a lot of tensions with.
