American People Cherish Russia’s President Putin for Pounding ISIS

American people are very grateful to Russia and love President Vladimir Putin for launching a war against ISIS terrorists wreaking havoc in Syria, says Scott Bennet, a US counter-terrorism analyst.

Bennet, a former US army psychological warfare officer, made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Wednesday while commenting on a statement by President Barack Obama who predicted on Tuesday that a Democrat would win the White House next year.

"I am anticipating a Democrat succeeding me. I am confident in the wisdom of the American people on that front," Obama said during a press conference from Paris.

Clinton will be indicted for criminal acts

Bennett said frontrunner Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton will not win the 2016 presidential election because she will soon possibly be indicted for criminal acts.

“I don’t think, in fact, I probably would say absolutely not that Hillary Clinton would be the candidate, because she very well soon may be indicted for criminal acts, which include treason and misprision of felony and aiding and abetting international terrorists, because when she was at the State Department and sectary of state, she prosecuted a Union Bank of Switzerland whistleblower who gave us all sorts intelligence on terrorist financing,” he stated.

“Instead of releasing [this information] and giving it to the American intelligence community, she covered it up, and she prosecuted this whistleblower and she got $1.5 million from Saudi Arabia from the Union Bank of Switzerland to her president husband Bill Clinton and to herself,” he added.

As many as 14 Republicans are seeking their party’s nomination for president but only Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are considered serious contenders.

Hillary Clinton is competing against only one Democrat and one independent senator, Bernie Sanders, for the Democratic Party's nomination. Only Sanders is considered at all competitive in the early primaries.

Trump has ‘real chance’ of winning

Bennett said that leading Republican contender Donald Trump has the “real chance” of winning the White House in 2016 “because he represents an independent person; he is not an establishment Republican, and the American public does not like establishment candidates anymore, because they are the ones who got us into these wasteful wars, and have really created the police state (at home) and are constantly demanding that the government continues its surveillance and its various prosecutions of the American citizens.”

“So the American public are tired of that. So that leads me to believe that they are already inclined to vote for Donald Trump. The other candidates? Marco Rubio I think is too young and is far too much an aggressive warmonger,” he stated.

“And the American citizens are tired of war... the American citizens do not want to get into anymore unnecessary wars and fights,” the analyst observed.

According to recent polls, Trump is still leading the Republican field nationally but his support has fallen by 12 points in less than a week, mainly because of his recent controversial remarks against Muslims.

The decline in his popularity among Republicans is the biggest since he leapt to the top of the field in July, according to a poll released on Friday.

Americans throwing flowers at Putin’s feet

Elsewhere in his remarks Bennett said, “As odd as it may sound, truly the American public has a new love affair with President Putin and Russia. The American public -- although they may not say it -- is very grateful and happy and celebratory towards President Putin.”

“They’re clapping their hands, and they are saying ‘thank you Mr. Putin’, and throwing flowers at his feet for going into Syria and destroying the ISIS terrorists that have been blamed for so much of mishap and confusion and destruction in Europe and in various parts of the United States,” he noted.

“So the Russian infiltration into Syria and takeover of that battle space is a very great favor to the people of the United States. So any country – really – that attacks Russia will not be on the good side of the American citizens,” he pointed out. “The mainstream media may not report this, but they don’t govern the heart of American citizens.”

Syria has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011. The crisis has claimed the lives of more than 250,000 people so far and displaced millions of others.

On September 30, Russia began its military campaign against ISIS terrorists and militants fighting against the Syrian government. Moscow has carried out scores of airstrikes, killing hundreds of terrorists.

The United States has accused Russia of targeting so-called moderate militants instead of ISIL terrorists. However, Russia has denounced the accusations as baseless, saying they are attacking both pro- and anti-Western terrorists in Syria; Press TV reported.
