Do you really think that Russia cares that much about fate of Kosovo and Serbia? Russia is currently standing in the way of UN-enforced Kosovo independence simply to create an issue of contention with the U.S. - it is all about the big players, not Kosovo. This issue of contention can later be used in negotiations with the U.S.

And if the US and all the European powers are backing Kosovo independence, without anyone to support the Serbian side of the issue, do you think that's fair? I agree that the Kosovo people should work out the problems among themselves in some non-violent matter. But the U.S. is already present and it will not leave, so such negotiations cannot be fair.

And do you think that if U.S. grants Kosovo independence through NATO, since UN is blocked, that all will be great and peaceful? What about the Serb minority? Who is to guarantee their protection. It is not all that simple, and Russia's presence is simply insuring that the Serbian side has outside backing just like the Albanian side.

Can you blame him? If I were the president of Russia I would say the same thing. Its total b/s what the US is doing, and it is total "muscle-flexing". Shoot, if I were in Putty boys place I probably would have already nuked the MoFo's.

Good post man...


Noticed the Ron Paul 08 in your signature. Don't you think the very man you want for President would be against that ridiculous line of thinking that you just spewed? "Nuke the MoFo's" huh? Nuclear war is not something you use to threaten other countries. There is too much at stake just so Putin can show the world how big his balls are.

And just why do you think a one world government would be any different? Give it up, there will be no Utopia or paradise on this planet. Your one world government could be ruled by strict Muslim law. I beta lot of feminists on this planet wouldn't be real happy about that governement!

No joke. That's like bragging about winning a boxing match against a dude with no arms. How could anyone look past the fact we were the only ones with nukes then, also why would anybody proclaim that as proudly as that post seemed to.


NOBODY wins in nuclear WAR.

There was a major NATO exercise going on in which National Leaders were participating. All of the communications and Reagan's sabre rattling had the Soviets thinking NATO was going to attack during the NATO exercise.

Thats not quite right.
The Russians had a listening post close to where the NATO leaders were planning and organizing their training exercises. The spys listening at the post were unaware that it was only a exercise and reported to Russia that a major operation was under way.

Its NOT because of any 'sabre rattling', its because the Russians were being their normal commie self.


Reagan and his evil empire antics were Sabre rattling in the eyes of the USSR. There was far more than just a single listening post involved. For one the USSR had a mole at NATO HQ.

Sure they do!
Especially if you go to war with a country that does NOT have nuclear weapons. Look how great it turned out in Japan.

It worked didn't it? Umm...YES!
The problem with your logic is that you are confusing 'sabre rattling' or 'arrogance' with confidence and knowing what is the right thing to do.

The USSR saw it as Sabre rattling and Reagan was not Jesus. Iran-Contra among other things was definitely not knowing what is the right thing to do. Invading the British Commonwealth was one of the stupidest things he ever did. Thatcher gave him quite a scolding over Grenada.

Who cares how Russia saw it.

You did not answer the question though. It worked didn't it?
Again, it was NOT sabre rattling, it was standing up to commie ********.


and Reagan was not Jesus.

Ok, where did this come from?

Who said he was Jesus?

I want to know how it worked. Considering his behavior got the Russians so nervous that WW3 almost started. It wasnt part of any game plan. When he found out how close he had gotten us into war it scared the crap out of him. Thats what began the dialogue with Gorbechev.

I mentioned the Jesus bit, because for a second I thought you might be Hannity from Fox news

I would tell you how it worked but how did his behavior almost start WWIII?
Are you talking about the Cuba missile crisis? I hope not because you do realize Reagan was not President then.

OK, that was funny!

Don't be too sure. According to airforce personnel that testified during Greer's National Press Conference, it was the U.F.O's that shot down nuclear missiles that had actually launched.
