It is possible


that the Russians are getting exactly what they planned for: They connived to place a person full of terminolog­ical inexactitu­des in the White House with the sole purpose of that person destroying U.S. credibilit­y in the world and alienating all of our allies. As the United States slides back into obscurity, the Russians will expand their involvemen­t in world affairs, as will the Chinese. This is not just a possible scenario; it is happening now. As this country reneges on various treaties, the Russians and Chinese will step up to the plate and spread their influence. The shame of it all is that the American people will suffer, not the person who caused the nation’s downfall. Alan Huckerby, Manassas
