What is Putin's Plan for US?
destroy the United States
1. Cultivate and utilize Russian assets inside the US (such as Puppet Trump) to sow conflict and dissension within the United States. Using Trump, Russia has penetrated the FBI, CIA, Justice Department, Education Department, Department of Energy, EPA, Department of War ("Defense") and others. According to bragging by the Russian news media, the week before the State of the (Dis)Union Address, heads of Russian spy agencies met with Trump officials to give personal guidance and instruction to American traitors in Washington, DC.
While the collapse of all Federal Agencies would delight Putin, the disemboweling of the US State Department by Puppet Trump has been a particular pleasure for Putin to watch because it furthers the next goal.
2. Destroy American world power by weakening or dissolving America's alliances with other nations. NATO is a special target, as Russia wishes to occupy Eastern Europe in the manner the Soviet Union once did. It will make no difference how much money Putin's US Confederates (with great pomp) throw at the US military. If foreign governments do not welcome US troops on their soil, the US troops will go home or be defeated outright. American isolationists are thus fulfilling Putin's objectives.
3. Cut off the "brain drain" to the Disunited States by encouraging prejudice against immigrants, refugees, etc. If the US can be made an inhospitable place for immigrants, Americans will have fewer space scientists, fewer doctors, fewer highly skilled hackers(!) and greater poverty. Immigrants have been a primary factor in American world dominance. Arresting immigration will stagnate America and hasten its descent into mediocrity.
4. Dump the Dollar! Permanently relegate the Disunited States to third world status by replacing the dollar as the predominant world currency. Worldwide economic forces have substituted one standard currency for another before. (The previous standard was the British Pound.) As an enfeebled US is forced to withdraw from the international stage, economic decay will follow (actually, Putin doesn't care which comes first). The speed with which this objective is achieved will depend on the success of the first three goals. The dissolution of the various European Empires is the model here. Puppet Trump advances this goal by applying sanctions willy-nilly and starting trade wars. Eventually other countries will simply dump the dollar, making it essentially worthless.
Will Putin's plan succeed? Temporarily outclassed by the American military, Putin is doing this on the cheap, aided by cyber proxies and his American assets (aka traitors). It is clear what Americans must do to defeat Putin. The ball is in our court, and if we do anything with it, we may have a chance to defeat Putin's American allies.
