was a fictional story at certain moments.

One really frightening scene was of a FSB lecture/training class on the approach Russia was taking. They plan according to final objectives, and reverse-engineer part of the plan. Like chess, every responsive move is anticipated, and the psychology of citizens and current leadership is a driving force.

They know exactly how to create chaos, division, civil war in western democracies.

I have been talking about this for a long time, that Russia and the GOP are at war with the US.

Hopefully people are beginning to see it.
