What do Putin and Trump talk about in private? Their secret collusion is promoting a sense of war so each make billions from arms sales.
Trump and Putin are co-conspirators in a game to increase the sales of complex weapons systems, tanks, jets, and Air Defense Systems. Their puppets are the American people and the brain-dead American press chasing its tail over the misdirect of Russia-USA 2016 election collusion. It is a classic information warfare operation while Rachel Maddow’s head spins over Mueller they loot America.
The two leaders have a push and pull relationship. Trump pulls his support from treaties like the JCPOA with Iran, pulls support from Korea and NATO, and pulls the plug on the Intermediate Range Nuclear Force (INF) Treaty and Putin pushes weapons sales for both countries, with his stoic glowering presence. It is the story of the Clown and Evil Wizard, and no need to define who is the clown, that has pushed both countries to increased weapons sales.

Trump and Putin have played their game no where better than in the Middle East. Trump stokes war between Israel and Iran by backing Israel’s aggressive bombing campaign in Syria and moving its capital to Jerusalem. Not one news anchor sought to explain why Trump turned his back on Qatar, especially when it houses America’s largest airbase in the region. The answer is simple: Trump could make money from arms sales. The following chart makes this only too clear.
Arms sales to Saudi Arabia has exploded. Middle East countries take five of the top 10 USA weapons buyers. The proof of this theory is South Korea. Trump edged South Korea into the top 10 buyers by getting it to agree to a 8.5 percent increase in weapons sales this year.
The final proof is the stock of Lockheed Martin, America’s largest maker and whose not so tongue-in-cheek motto is: “If it kills we sell it.”
It started 2017 at $259 a share and ended 2017 $360, a 30 percent increase in value. Compare this to Trump’s first year in office and the start of his money making strategy, the Dow Jones only rose 14% (February 17 to February 18.
What do Trump and Putin talk about? They laugh about how easy it is divide America and control the news cycle while America’s and Russia’s billionaires loot the world.
