You would allow Russia to march across all of Europe to avoid war is what you re really saying because if you let Poland go all of Europe will go up in flames with it.

Actually the issue is why is becoming a big issue that we have the first female VP candidate giving opinions on an issue that merits none either that or somebody has not inform the Madam VP candidate how the conflict with Georgia started.
So I guess when it comes to NATO allies they are the ones with the right to attack other nations but not to be retaliated upon without "serious consequences".
Any how we all know That Russia will retaliate if Georgia attacks another neighboring nation and is nothing that NATO is going to do against Russia.
Because we all know who is at fault here.

It is disturbing and worthy of discussion.
Do you have anything to add?

This question was obviously asked in relation to the current S. Otessia - Georgia / Russia conflict.
I do believe I am correct in noting that Russia was NOT an aggressor but acted to defend an ally, that is defend S. Otessia from an attack staged by Georgia.

How is a thread, in which the OP lies via omission to blatently and substansially change the nature Of Sarah Palin's remarks, not being held to the "stop the madness standard?"
I thought rumours, innuendo, and lies were no longer allowed?

Back to Sarah. The interview in question and today's ABC interview showed her to be still the mayor of Mayberry, Alaska and completely clueless about the real world. She obviously had a few things that she was to repeat no matter what the question. When the ABC interviewer asked her questions, she answered with the lines she knew, equivocated, and fumbled and did not even come close to answering the questions. Most people can tell when someone is faking it and Sarah was really faking it. The GOP has picked their hockey mom and will now have to live with the results. With her one heartbeat away from the presidency and even less aware than W, this was a bad choice. I have been a Republican for the last 40 years and couldn't vote for McCain-Palin if they were the only ones on the ballot.
I'm sorry John. I wanted a reason to vote for you even though you are past your prime. You would have been a much better president than W but the Bush fortune and big oil pushed you away and gave us the spoiled rich boy who had not a bit of your work ethic, skills, or honorable traits. Your team really selected her for her novelty and no closet skeletons but as soon as she opens her mouth on issues and is not merely cheerleading, it becomes apparent that she is an empty head; uneducated and too shallow for all but those in denial. I can't vote for you because a President Palin is not a good thing. I could have gone for Kay Bailey or another woman who knew how to run things but not Sarah. Buy her some lipstick for her pit bull and send her back to Alaska.
