We all need to look at the very real possibility of the Russians will get spooked by being surrounded by the US, and may act in haste, and do
something rather rash.
If this were to happen, there would be a war of immense proportions.
I may be a bit biased here, but are we looking down the barrel of a very long gun here?
I don't want to speculate on the result of a global-scale war between russia and the US. Even if the US destroyed the Russians once (Economically)
with the end of the cold war, It doesn't mean that we can do it again.
If It were up to me, I'd slowly back away from the situation.
However, it's not up to me is it? Nor is it up to any of us. It's up to some #ing moron in the white house who says whether or not troops move in
closer. And it's never up to us, since it's never on a ballot. We never get to vote where we want our troops, but one of the people in this country
to whom I wouldn't entrust the care of a colony of sea monkeys is in charge of our military.
What does this say to you about reasoning, or rather, the lack of reasoning that will be used in regards to the situation?
Take for example past precedence.
You have two options, in post 9-11 America, if you're the president.
1. Take reasonable steps to head off this happening again (assuming that it wasn't you in the first place) *no Comment*
2. Go off half-cocked, and turn three countries on their respective ears.
The face of civil rights may never be the same in the US.
People in Afghanistan went from being poor, dirty, and hopeless, ruled by moderately rich people who where pretty corrupt, to being poor, dirty, and
hopeless, ruled by Insanely rich people corrupted to the core, but with good public faces.
The people of Iraq will soon be force-fed the bull# of Bill O'riley over at Fox news, and various other piles of garbage that we're heaping over in
their country, at the low low price of us depriving them of the full use of their Best national resource.
So, back to the point; Reason?
I haven't exactly known the president to use reason in hot situations, and I for one will not be surprised to read once more in size seventy two
font, on the front of my local paper, WAR, and nor will I be surprised if My country never knows peace again. Lord knows what can happen once people
get a taste of blood, and I think that the US has more than a fair amount of it on it's hands, lips, and face.
Monstrous? Perhaps. But one only has to look as far as the commander in chief to know that we're being run into the ground economically, and spread
too thin militarily. I'm all for equal rights, but I don't think that the mentally handicapped should be able to run for president.
