Reaping the whirlwind

Dear Editor

Oh how the mighty have fallen. 

Just when the U.S. points the finger squarely at the Kremlin for meddling and most likely determining the outcome of the U.S. presidential election in 2016, the gremlins (no pun intended) are already working on the result of next year’s U.S. mid-term elections. 

And with the U.S. President himself in the gremlins pockets, and attacking the U.S. intelligence services, they can meddle to their hearts content it seems and with impunity.

The history of US government meddling in other nations’ elections is as long as it is tragic.

The U.S. invariably meddled on the side of some right wing corrupt dictator that the champions of democracy and freedom were trying to free their people from. 

These were more often than not corrupt military men that took power by force of arms supplied by the U.S., and with the help of C.I.A. covert manipulation of people and information.  

Security for the U.S. was the aim and as President John once said about these brutal and corrupt dictators, “They might be sons of a bi**h, but they are our sons of a bi**h” 

But what is good for the goose is good for the gander. And what goes around comes around. When the Kremlin meddled last time, Trump came around. 

Let’s see who and what other horrors will turn up next.
