I would have thought the Russians would be more interested in Alaskan secession, and would even give back the $7 million they got for it in 1867.
I also sense that Californians are less interested in secession when Governor Brown was asking for federal aid to deal with a potential disaster because one of their long neglected dams is in danger of catastrophic failure.
The irony is palpable.
The Russians are bitter over the collapse of the Soviet Union.
So it shouldn’t be surprising that they will use every means at their disposal to create chaos in the West.
