    Violence Erupts as Islamic State Rises (1881)

    The United States should welcome Russia as a full partner in the struggle to destroy the Islamic State, Republican preisdential candidate and billionaire businessman Donald Trump told a rally in Milford, New Hampshire.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Trump noted that the United States should embrace Russia’s readiness to use its own air force and weapons to fight the Daesh. The terrorist group is outlawed in the United States and Russia, as well as in numerous other countries.

    "Wouldn't it be nice if we got along with Russia so we could knock out ISIS [the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, which is outlawed in Russia] with them?" Trump stated on Tuesday evening. "Let them beat the s**t out of ISIS also. We'll beat the s**t out of them."

    Trump revealed that pressure had been put on him to denounce President Vladimir Putin after the Russian leader publicly praised him. But Trump did not identify the source of the pressure, and added that he has refused to comply.

    The Republican candidate also said the United States should no longer act as the "policeman" for the rest of the world.

    "We've become the policeman of the rest of the world. They pay us peanuts," Trump pointed out.

    On Monday, Trump came in second in the Iowa caucuses behind US Senator Ted Cruz, but he is now concentrating on the primaries in the US state of New Hampshire set to be help on February 9.

      Russia should welcome Donald Duck to sit at the foot of the table and keep his mouth shut along with the rest of the US establishment of lying murdering thieves and other assorted rabble.

      Donald Trump appears to be his own man and not easily controlled by the powers that were.... its the vote counting that needs to be double-checked and there are no systems in place to do that... the whole world cannot afford another stolen American election through vote counting fraud and the people must demand it

      To become a partner with Russia, one should have passed a few simple tests: absolute respect, no arrogance, no domination or imposition of one's will on others. The Us of NA has a long way to go. It should ,to start with, de-escalate its programme of spending billions in Europe, waste of money. But then I must be consistent: the more they waste, the quicker they will be bankrupt, the better for the world. Us of NA, I hope the world allows you to save face with dignity, and then a new era will begin. But remember, you are not vitally needed in the cockpit. The world is now multi-polar, M.P, M.P., M.P.......

      Trump makes a sensible assertion, but as with most if not all of what he says, can this be backed up with deeds also.

      e^(0^(iπ)) = 1, and trace the financers and weapons dealers that created daesh=isis=is=alcaida (is not so Islamic), lets beat the s**t out of them. And don't forget the military instructors/trainers of daesh=isis=is=alcaida (is not Islamic at all), and lets beat the s**t out of them as well. Then we go after the politicians and world leaders behind the financers, weapons dealers, and military trainers/instructors of daesh=isis=is=alcaida (are bloody zionists) and lets beat the s**t out of them too. An Islamic "State" without state boundaries? Just another stateless nwo scam, classic problem-action-solution strategy.

      Russia, the Russian people, were there in the beginning (America's war, for Independence) for us, loaning us money and help in any way they could. Russia, and by Russia I mean the people who are Russia, when it wasn't in the hands of the Rothschild's Jew Mafia under the leadership of J. Stalin, when it wasn't the USSR, has always been good too and good for America. What has changed, well, America has changed, America is now in the hands of the Rothschild's Jew Communist Mafia under the leadership of President's, starting with Reagan, until today. Our dear and trusted friend, Russia, was changed when it was infested by Rothschild's Jew Communist, murderous people, like the world had never seen before, financed by American Jew wealth, Armand Hammer and the Rothschild's, to name two. America's war of Independence, if you want to know, was a war against the same foes we have today, the Rothschild's Bank of England, wanting to handle our finances and man have they ever handled our finances, all the way to the Rothschild's vast and many vaults. America lost that war and we have lost every war since then, America is for sure losing the war(s) today. How dare any human being call the Russian people an enemy and in the same breath call the Bush family and/or their ilk, a friend. Read you many and completely foolish people, find out the truth, don't let the biggest bully on the block tell you who to love and who to hate. Stand up for yourself and country, stand against liars and murders, for they will surely kill you when they get a chance.
