While I frequently disagree with him, I don't think Arkady is an idiot by any means.

I am, though, a bit puzzled about what he means here.

All America's vaunted technological achievements (aimed at Russia) failed to prevent a Russian-backed president being elected there.

Don't think "Putin", think "gang".

In a gang the leader has quasi absolute power, but only to a point when the gang decides he's of no use anymore. It doesn't even have to be a decision by the whole gang, there are clans and fractions as the gang has grown in 100 years running the empire. Cases, when the gang ditched the leader, are well known - Khrushchev, Gorbachev, Yeltsin.

That being said, thugs are cowards by nature, they only attack when confident of victory. This is why they played nice in the 80/90's. They knew they can't keep up with the West. Even back in the 60's, when they probably had some advantage in technologies and numbers, they didn't risk a war during the Cuba crisis, and the assasination of President John F. Kennedy was their revenge for that humiliation. Fucking thugs.

I wondered why someone would call a stranger "Mr. Trump". Idiocy seems the only sane excuse for that silly failure.

If he could hit Washington with that thing, i say more power to him. That might be just the thing we need. Make sure Congress is in session and Trump is actually in the WH before you launch.

I was referring to Mr Trump, not addressing him - as I would have thought was obvious from the context.
