Senate political pragmatism retards are pushing to continue momentum toward renewing the lost Cold War with the Soviet Union with the new Russia. Intelligence is required to be on good terms with Russia and the U.S. Senate leadership lacks that. Instead they are concerned with riches beyond their wildest dreams although actually they are likely to dream that as a kind of REM waking state with willful control. The military industrial complex likes to maintain a dual threat with Russia and China for arms sales and home arms producer factories and is intolerant of cultivating deep, lasting, friendly relations with Russia. Tards (as the teenage term goes).
