Media CELEBRATES Defense Secretary Who Refused To Pull Troops Out Of Afghanistan Reply

One thing that should be pointed out is that it is not uncommon for “strongman” rulers to have conflicts within their oligarchies and deep states. Putin is clearly a strongman and quasi-dictator even if he purged the corrupt oligarchy that ruled Russian during the Yeltsin period. Turkey’s deep state attempted a coup against Erdogan a few years ago. Trump the used car salesman is obviously not Putin, a former KGB operative, or Erdogan, an Islamist and neo-Ottoman expansionist. Trump is a Rockefeller-Nixon-Koch-Perot-Clinton-Guiliani hybrid and imitator. Anarchists and cohorts need to get past the need to take sides in these intra-state/intra-ruling class conflicts.
