“The US in its history has never put troops so close to Russia, going back to the eighteenth century.” (Okay, this is factually incorrect; the US invaded Russia with some 13,000 troops in 1918.) Now the US is “right on Russia’s borders. … Obama cannot hide from this one in the shadows as he sometimes does regarding foreign policy. This is his decision” and now “NATO is going to quadruple its military power around Russia.”
“Not one question about it has been raised in all this multitude of presidential debates. … You and I tonight have talked about something that is unknown to the American public.”
