I feel, personally, that the aggressive stance that Putin has placed Russia upon is in direct response to the flagrant global belligerence displayed
by the current American government.
Be under no illusion, a war with Russia will bring utter decimation to the American and European continents. I doubt you will find a place safe enough
for you or your family. Any military conflict with Russia would entail a nuclear one...guaranteed! On that thought, America and Europe can expect to
be saturated with nuclear missiles and bombs of varying yeilds from 1meg to 60megatons. Their weaponry is not as accurate as America's, but with that
kind of payload, it don't matter much. In fact, it wouldn't really be a war, certainly not in the old context of its meaning, it would simply be a
species committing suicide. Bush messes with Putin at his peril!
My thought and vote always lays in the ideology of equal freedom and liberty for all, everywhere on the planet for each people to their own historical
and cultural precedence. For that I will fight: if a country (and I don't care which country) wants to try and take my freedom from me, then by all
means, let it try...I am not prepared to give it up...not for any country or any government...especially my own. Just remember one thing, terrorists
do not take freedoms, they take lives in making statements...there is no terrorist ideology extant that seeks to take away another country's
freedoms. This is why the so-called 'war' on terror is a misnomer.
Of course, you have to stop terrorists from taking lives...that goes without saying, but let such action be placed in its true context, and not as a
possible pretext to create and sustain a conflict with an enemy you cannot beat, whilst in the process make huge amounts of money from destroying and
killing the wrong targets. The best and only way to overcome terrorism is to change the mindset of the terrorist, and that often means changing one's
own mindset. We have to change our own mindset in order to accomodate a understanding of why the 'alleged' terrorist has commited a act of terror
upon us, but if one's nefarious government does not want you to understand, it will seek to obsfucate, disinform and deny you any perogative of
understanding...one's own government becomes a informational terrorist against you.
There is no greater or more noble cause to fight than that of one's own freedom and liberty, except the freedom and liberty of your countrymen,
women, and children. Freedom and liberty are the establishment of meaning and purpose to our lives, and we must guard them with every breath we take,
and act uncompromisingly and unconcernedly for our own safety when they are attacked, for both freedom and liberty are the incubators of our
children's future, and thus, we must tender to them a moral and justified obligated duty of acute watchfulness.
We should NEVER give up anything, not for a second, absolutley no part of our freedom or liberty just because a act of 'terror' has been visited
upon us, for it invites one's government to take supreme and sublime advantage over us, and from there, the real terror, the most pernicious harm to
our freedom and liberty comes not from the outside, but from within.
To answer your question...I would either fight or protest, it all depends upon the threat, and from where it truly comes.
