Unilateral sanctions against Turkey is just more icing on the cake for Putin.

The retreat from the battlefield and abandonment of our allies was the main course, sanctions will actually be dessert for Putin.

Putin is using Trump to drive every country that was close to Russia even closer. The slow steps made by past U.S. presidents into productive agreements or some type of relations are lost and reversed as Putin’s power grows in:
Venezuela.
Iran.
Ukraine.
Turkey.

If and when a democratic president is elected in 2020, I fear the catastrophe that Trump will be handing over will be far worse than “just” the basket case economy and two wars that George W, Bush handed to Barack Obama.

World powers are realigning, new alliances will form in the vacuum left by the United States, Pax Americana is over. Ugly dictators who slaughter innocents and have no presumptions about human rights will rule.

If Trump stays in another four years, will we be warring with Canada too? Will we be donating troops to assist in, rather than deter, Russian dominance?

1. Remember Bush and his axis of evil?

I am not sure you can call it an axis but chaotic membership appears to be growing.
