No doubt the Kremlin sees American withdrawal of forces as creating a gap they can fill to their benefit and many American interests have the same view.

Of course such people are blind to the reasons America is so powerful.

America makes money, lots and lots of money and that is why it is so powerful.

So saving US resources by not interfering in other countries affairs, especially Muslim ones, would only make the US stronger and letting Russia seizes the poisoned chalice would only make them weaker.

Just because your opponent wants something doesn't mean you should deny it to them.

The problem is not American power, it's American ruthlessness. Russians are more subtle and that's why their power is not resented in the ME, and why their presence there will not make them weaker. Russia will be in the ME long after the US has withdrawn behind its North American borders...

Russia is welcome to whatever they want in the ME. Good luck with that.

I never argued that American power is a problem.
I gave your subtlety argument credit for being novel!

You misunderstand very much. Many who would have voted for Bernie had not he been cheated out of the Democrat nomination voted for Trump.
Out of sheer disgust at the Democrats Party?
Yes Bernie won the New Hampshire primary but Hillary got more delegates. The DNC has what they call super delegates. These are people that are delegates automatically. It works out to about 1/3 of the delegates over all. Plus the Sander's campaign pulled in some information about donors from the DNC and the DNC made a big deal about it. From what I understand Hillary took all of Bernie's donor list and the DNC did nothing. Lots of stuff like that. SO the Bernie supporters were indeed pretty disgusted with the Democratic Party.

Yes, many news outlets are touting Saudi involvement in 911 as a ‘conspiracy theory’.

It’s only a conspiracy theory if you’re blind to the obvious in my view.

They certainly know the sin of pride. OBL's father ordered his engineers to covert all of his bulldozers to tanks after one of the Arab Israeli wars. Apparently his pride was that hurt.
