Having the United States threaten to walk away at a moment's notice, like Trump is tossing out there, helps Putin's threat seem more real. It forces Japan to capitulate to Putin, fearing that the U.S. won't be there for them. In speaking out like he did, Trump is doing Putin's bidding.
The beheading of a child and use of poison gas in Syria ought to awaken Obama and Putin to the dangers of sticking with their chosen allies. But it won't happen.

BSN was on site cramming the equivalent of 24 cable hours into one 60 minute show interviewing Schumer/Steele/Dionne as well as a leading gay/veteran/congressman/Bernie-or-Buster.
