Why would Putin want to destroy America's democracy? [View all]

He was a KGB officer when the former Soviet Union collapsed. It was a desperately agonizing time for him. The Berlin Wall had come down. They had been defeated in Afghanistan. Later, they were embarrassed by the defeat of Saddam Hussein in the first Gulf War. He wanted revenge on the democracies around the world. But, they would fight them in a different way.

He would train people to master the technology for information and propaganda purposes, with the goal of weakening and dividing democracies in Europe and in America. He found an ally in Donald Trump, for whatever reason? Many have suspected some sort of kompromat.

Whatever, it seems to have worked beyond his wildest dreams. He is finally getting the revenge he wanted for the destruction of his old country, the USSR.

America is only his latest target. He could not have hoped for a softer, more naive democracy. He never dreamed that the Republican Party would help him in his goal.
