i know this isnt relevant to your blog but idk who else to ask that is involved closely to presidential shit happening. what do you think this means for the US? what do you think trump and russia are planning or wanting to do?

personally i think putin’s ultimate goal is to use trump to change the international power structure, and put russia in a better position, which would likely involve:

  • lifting sanctions on russia
  • recognize russia’s ownership of crimea
  • make US cooperate in an international war against “terror” where the “terrorists” are anyone who opposes assad’s regime in syria 
  • weaken/dismantle NATO
  • weaken/dismantle EU
  • further promote instability in europe and the US
  • maintain or increase influence/control over former soviet republics

and just for comparison:

  • trump is willing to lift sanctions on russia [x]
  • he might recognize moscow’s annexation of crimea [x]
  • supports assad’s regime [x]
  • have repeatedly attacked NATO, and recently called it “obsolete” [x]
  • praised UK for leaving EU, and hopes other’s will follow [x]
  • won’t commit to defending baltic states [x]
An FYI

Especially regarding pallanophs, because I sense I have (somehow) confused some people, especially newcomers. So before I forget, I thought I’d elaborate/clarify some things.

Pallanophs are not: Anthropomorphic. Were-creatures. Anything that falls under “furry.” These terms would imply that pallanophs are half-human or human-like renditions of existing animals, which they are not. They’re independent of earth mammals, though bear superficial resemblances to them. Felines, primates (baboons), bears, hyenas, and equines were my primary sources of inspiration when I designed them. They live on an alternate universe Earth, after all, so it’s not that big of a stretch.

Also for the record, I’m not someone who identifies as a furry, and I’ll be honest, tagging pallanophs/etc. as such is inaccurate and as a result, a bit bothersome to me. I know this is probably not a popular statement, so if you wish to unfollow me, feel free to do so.

Thanks for your time and understanding.
