Looks like the Obama administration is being outmaneuvered (again) by Vladimir Putin. Russia is seeking stronger relations with India and, to a lesser extent, Pakistan. The U.S. has long touted a special relationship with India because it is the world’s largest democracy. Last time I checked, Great Britain should share more of the dubious credit of bringing India’s democratic status about.
Meanwhile, the U.S. had to back down on its tough stance on including Russia on all of today’s talks regarding Syria. Hell. Why would Putin need Trump as a friend? He seems to be doing what he wants with Obama as an adversary, and if Mrs Clinton is going to be the continuation of Obama, then a Clinton victory will do Vlad the Impaler just fine.
