The people who financed and conspired to install communism in Russia were capitalist bankers and US government collaborators, and the people who financed the end of communism in Russia were also capitalists and US government collaborators. Russians were manipulated both times because they trusted evil people. NATO expanded into former USSR territory because of similar trust in Western assurances. Putin is not so trusting now.
It would be nice if the truth was obvious at the time things were happening, but it never is. These plans go very deep, very long term, and are secrets kept for decades. We learn of the truth 70 years later. America was pushed into wars by these same capitalists for fraudulent reasons, yet much of that has still been kept secret. We find out only a tiny bit at a time, never all at once. We recently discovered that our president, JFK was murdered by our own government. Now they are threatening to do it again to Trump.
For the present time, the only guy we trust is Trump. He's tried to keep his promises, and he has kept many of them. The rest of the government should not be trusted at all. They are truly snakes waiting to strike. Trump can't control all of them by himself. It's horrible that this evil collection of snakes have been arming themselves with nuclear weapons.
