As in Brexit Britain, the military-industrial-financial complex consolidates it’s hold on power at the expense of peace and the prosperity of it’s people. I do not say there will be war with Russia but a continuation of the peace process Obama had initiated looks very unlikely. Clinton doesn’t want it and Trump will run into the same obstacles as Obama.
