Russia is one country with a Stable Government we can use diplomacy with. Russia has fought back against a country that invaded it. Or should they wait for Moscow to burn before responding?

And I think TWO WARS with a THIRD ONE being promised if McBush is elected... That's kind of International.

I think the reason he said this is because the US can do nothing about this and that stings. They can try but then we'd all be screwed. HOPEFULLY, that means McCain has some sense after all.

Thankfully.

No it didn't. Georgia didn't touch Russia. At all. They didn't even touch the border.

Iraq and Afghanistan were invasion-occupations, not real wars. If this Georgia thing escalates too far, the US could be involved in an actual war, possibly with Russia. I think that's what he (and everyone else in the world) is afraid of.

If that turns out to be true then God help us all.

I sincerely thought we couldn't get any worse than the Bush-Kerry race in 2004.

We are close to hitting rock bottom with McCain-Obama. Two of the most ignorant, out-of-touch candidates every in history.


I don't think we are at rock bottom, we passed that back in 2000 when Bush stole the election. Ever since we plowed below the barrel.

Pretty soon it'll start to get warm if we keep going into the ground.


But I don't care what my co-workers and friends say about it (even my dad, as much as I try to point it out to him how McCain is Bush 3.0), I'll be voting for someone else, even if I have to write in someone. Maybe I'll take an idea from Lewis Black and write in Ronald Reagan. A dead President could do a better job than these wackos.

They were, and are wars. The Iraq War ring a bell? When it started it was a war, now that its gone to hell people try to spin things but its a war.

Um, Afganistan attacking America isn't International? This lead to TWO WARS involving the UN, United Nations, as in diferent Nations, International. Neocon logic is the only way to say something that invovles International response is not International.


A 10 year old could tell you that it wasn't Afghanistan that attacked America

Yes, it was. The Taliban controlled Afganistan, we invaded Afganistan, we overthrew the Afganistan Government and placed a new one. Duh.

Yeah sure, in the way that the War on Terrorism and the War on Drugs are wars
you can call anything a war these days, but you'll only know what a real war is when it actually happens and you're actually scared. I meant real wars. As in both sides attacking each other. I don't remember Iraq even getting close to the US, or any Americans being scared of losing that one, because it was a simple one-sided invasion.

Now if you were at war with Russia, that would be a real war because you'd actually both be trying to destroy each other and it would become a serious international crisis. That's what McCain is saying.

They've got to keep defense spending up somehow.

Who do you think bankrolls the GOP if not defense contractors and oil companies?

They want a return on their investment.

The united states government was conducting business with the taliban for the pipe deal - 911 was conducted by saudi nationals -

get an idea.

The reality of this is tha tif Russia is pushed and the west continue to push China and Iran as they have been then there will simply be a reaction from the political south - I can see the next global conflict not being a clash of civilisations between east and west - christianity and islam - rather between the south and the north.

Mark my words.

McCain is completely off his rocker. Even if you don't agree with Obama, at least he isn't nutz like McCain. People, when comparing the "lessor of 2 evils", Obama wins hands down. Our country may not be optimal with Obama, but our country is screwed if McCain gets to office. SCREWED.

Im not voting for McCain simply because of his and John Kerry's determend efforts to put a lid on any investigations into the Vietnam POW/MIA question.

McCain looks like Dr. Evil from Austin Powers. Top that off with the fact he was POW for 2 years and most likely tortured, I'm gonna bet hes not sane enough to be president.

Except Obama has recently pretty much said he is in agreement with McCain's stance and the recent stance taken by Bush...so...it's pretty much the same. It's like playing Russian roulette, maybe America will catch on one day and realize the choice of two parties nowadays is really nothing but choosing a different face for the same agenda.

Does everyone think we can discuss the topic and not each other?

And PLEASE stop with the "duh" comments... It really does not look good on either side...

Sounds like something one of the candidates would say..

I don't know which statement is more ill-founded or comical - McInsane's or the one above.

So Iraq isn't a war... ok... how about telling that to the families of roughly 4000 soldiers who have died in the 'simple one-sided invasion'. How did Iraqi fighters kill these 4000 US troops if they didn't manage to get close to them?

McInsane and Obama are two sides of the same coin. America, you're screwed in this election, no matter who you vote for. Which means that us Aussies are screwed by proxy, as we might as well be your 51st State.
