    I'm Mexican American and I don't find trump to be racist he's just a business man at heart and he tells it how it is and isn't gonna sugar coat it for all you feminism advocates and they are taking advantage of us canada, japen,Germany South Korea and etc don't pay us anything for watching over them if you ask me we should literally take all of canada and say fuck em we have more people in California then they have in all of Canada & if you simply just look at a map they have just as much land as our country who the fuck died and made them king I always hear about Americas part in slavery how about the whole history before 1776 there are still more years from 1492-1776 then there is from 1776-2017 my question is why are you people so ashamed for you're nationally born demonic ways be proud that you're all mainly Satan spawns and your whole families are cursed and will soon face thee real unltimate consiquences which is boredum and a lifetime of shiter and shiter reincarnations

    Thought Walt was a smart guy, but he doesn't seem to realise Russia hasn't invaded anyone's sovereign territory.

    IGNORANT, IMMORAL, ALT-RIGHT RACIST, and ILL-INFORMED, FASCIST LYING, CHICKEN-HAWK WAR-MONGER DONALD J TRUMP is very quickly destroying all US alliances, just as Trump's hero and comrade Putin planned all along. In addition to alienating long standing European allies, he is also destroying all of our hard fought Middle Eastern allies who are bravely sacrificing their own lives fighting ISIS along side of US troops.

    Trump is also seriously threatening the safety of our troops with the immoral, emperialistic suggestion that we "keep the oil"; and has already done more than any human in history to bolster ISIS recruitment and support due to his very obviously ignorant, immoral, ill-informed, racist, and strategically weak — NOT strong — chicken-hawk war-mongering; thus generalizing and alienating all 1.6 billion Muslims with his obvious racist, fascist fear-mongering and xenophobia — as if all Muslims are ISIS members, when the real fact is that 99% of Muslims are very anti-ISIS…until now, when all intelligent humans, Muslim or others, will vehemently oppose Trump's immoral, Putin allied fascism.

    TRUMP is already being banned from addressing the Parliament of the UK — with many UK Parliamentarians even suggesting that Trump is far too criminally corrupt, racist, and misogynistic even to be allowed to enter the UK — and is already Internationally despised by most, if not all, of our traditionally closest allies such as Mexico, France, Germany, Australia, etc.

    Trump and Michael Flynn, Steve Bannon, and the rest of the Alt-Right Islamophobes have us already firmly on the road to military conflict in the Middle East, especially in Iran — which Obama era diplomacy had us on the road to a lasting sustained peace and end of hostilities. This fascist war-mongering with Iran is also quickly destroying all US support internationally, and seems to be motivated purely by racist Islamophobia, and to benefit Betsy Devo's brother Erick Prince and Blackwater and Halliburton, and the rest of the Military Industrial Complex who only make money when there is war.

    Trump is, without question, the most hated man on Earth — even already much more hated than were Bush and Cheney ever were after starting the unnecessary war which has resulted in the formation of ISIS — and for very good reason — Trump's immoral criminal corruption, racism, war-mongering, and climate science denial is the greatest threat to all living beings on Earth in human history.

    wrong, wrong, wrong,,,,the usa doesn't make mistakes in foreign lands. it draws up very detailed economic/militaristic contingency plans to bankrupt / kill and take over other peoples resources. we've been conditioned to do these despicable things against humanity from our covert alliance with the most hated people on planet earth – the american jews of israel.

    Dr. Stephen M. Walt is an excellent commentator, whose analysis is always insightful and rational!

    Democracy Now should be having him way more often on the show.

    Stephen Walt makes sense for the most part but he comes off a bit too Russophobe to me. Trump foreign policy is a disaster thus far but what he said about US being bad in many cases is absolutely correct.

    BY FAR NONE THEY ARE NO MISTAKES.
    Correct that Democracy now.
    General Clark cleary stated in the memo that US is invading 7 countries in the next 5 years with Iraq being on that list. So Iraq is clearly intentional. It is no MISTAKE. Just another BIG LIE.

    An Australian senator had a Trump doormat made up for the senate so everyone can wipe their feet when entering. I don't think they like him! http://www.9news.com.au/national/2017/02/07/12/02/senator-nick-xenophon-says-australia-won-t-be-us-doormat

    Our foreign policy from Reagan to Trump now is Amarican is exceptional bow down. And when they don't we are confused Iraq was going to be a cake walk, week or months let alone coming up on a decade. But you know Iran will be the new cake walk, the scab of the Iran nuclear deal will be picked at till the high stakes game of international relations will be a game of who can blink first. JFK and Russia gave the world its tommarow's when they established red line between the two, but is that even possible when the both sides see the other as the mark of Saten?

    Trump bellicosity has blown foreign policy, boots on the ground in Yemen. I would say we are living in a first strike world. With Bushes Iraq blunder only to be eclipsed by an infinate in provoking the the Persian empire an empire that has stood for ages the a proud people, that would make the aftermath of the Iraq war look to be mere bees stinging at a picnic party.

    I loved how Mr Trump was honest in his interview . Look what has resulted in the Middle East as a result of US policy ? Millions have died . And this Stephen Walt character , downplaying the us foreign policy and blasting Russia , for Crimea ? I don't know why the west is so concerned with Crimea . From what I can tell Crimea is quite happy with the annex , and I don't blame them. Russians are being persecuted and killed in Kiev . They are a fascist government. The vast majority of Crimeans view Russia as liberators and overwhelmingly support Russia . How can Mr . Walt honestly say what russia is doing is worse than what the west has done ?

    It's not MISTAKES by the US, holy shit, hate it when liberal apologists seep through onto Democracy Now. Fuck their Neo-McCarthyism too, Putin fear mongering is just 'make NATO great again' from liberals, the same NATO ultimately behind the crisis of Ukraine https://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/russia-fsu/2014-08-18/why-ukraine-crisis-west-s-fault

    The well educated pundits and poll masters just don't understand, or don't want to understand his real genius. After 30 years of voting Democrat, I voted for Trump. So far, Trump is doing just fine… America First!
