Ukraine Update: The new axis of evil

As liberals, we cringe at reductionist language like “axis of evil.” We hated it when former President George W. Bush used the phrase to justify his invasion of Iraq, and we cringe every time old-school neoconservatives utter one of its many variations.

Recent history shows, however, that there is indeed an axis of nations wishing ill upon the world. And unfortunately, it’s been proven once again that if the United States doesn’t lead the opposition, then no one will.

And that’s the reason every dictatorial strongman in that axis—from Russia’s Vladimir Putin to North Korea’s Kim Jong Un—is rooting for Donald Trump to win.
