it seems that many people are brushing it off like it is none of our business or it will not affect us.
Is this a war that will eventually affect us? I'm assuming there is no possible way to help this small country without starting a war with Russia. What if we step in.. is it WW3?
A draft is inevitable if we step in, and we are in no way prepared to take on a Super-Power right now... how concerned should American Citizens be???

Then there's the other issue of two, count them TWO, presidential candidates; one a WARMONGER and the other a WARMONGER-LITE, both do not want to remove "no option" from the table.
"Gentlemen, Comrades, do not be concerned about all you hear about glasnost and perestroika and democracy in the coming years. These are primarily for outward consumption. There will be no significant internal change within the Soviet Union, other than for cosmetic purposes. Our purpose is to disarm the Americans and let them fall asleep".
-- Mikhial Gorbachev, former President of the Soviet Union, to the Politburo in November of 1987.
Further global progress is now possible only through a quest for universal consensus in the movement towards a new world order

If it's all for one, then the U.S. would be first to bomb Russia. But if the U.S. feels that one little country isnt worth more than that counrty being destroyed, then they wouldnt dare bomb Russia.
