    Blah. So he wrote propaganda. Whatever.
    Fine with me. There is also an endless stream of propaganda demonizing Trump. It is sad and silly, but... whatever.

    At the end of the day, did anyone really change their minds after reading this crap? Really?

    The US government sends thousands and thousands of soldiers all over the world to further its interests. But when the Russians write stories and buy ads, those are somehow a dangerous force. Damn, those Russians are smart and subtle!
