Scary as it might sound, I believe we need stop Russia before they get any ideas about the
rest of the old Soviet States.
While we're on the subject.. it's about time Russia was told to
go swivel on their policy on Syria.. Putin's mafia is keeping Assad in power.
Hope the Russian people turn on Putin.

Who is WE? And whoever that is, why do you feel compelled that We has the right to stop Russia or any country for that matter to take a certain action? Who gives WE the right to act as a world police and decide who does what? And who said Assad regime is the bad guys and not the rats of Al Qaida who fight against him are the good one?edit on 26-2-2014 by Telos because: (no reason given)
WE in this case, are the Nato Alliance and Western Europe.
I guess you're just a kid or you would understand Divisions that still
divide East and West after the break of up of the old Soviet Union.

I agree. Especially that Russia is now sharing its intelligence services with China - together, China and Russia would make a mighty force against the US, who still holds debts to China.

But why would there be any Sino-Russian sympathy inside the US?
Like the old saying goes, if I borrow £1,000,000 that's the borrowers problem, but if I borrow £1,000,000,000,000 that's the lenders problem.

Surely you can find a less ignorant way to state your opinion... the overwhelming scent of racism covers an otherwise good point that Yes the US should stay out of it as we would expect others to stay out of our affairs.
It seems that Russia is not trying to win a physical war but an ideological war. Russia (or China) could be supporting Snowden, Wikileaks or Anon, and thus encourage the people of the USA itself to hate the American government (The Fifth Column tactic) and overthrow it. Once the people is in charge of the american policy, Sino-Russia could become the "wise guys" and thus direct this post-revolution world. Russia has an history of disinformation campaigns against USA, and people often agreed with the Russians (especially if Russia promises to get the World rid of "fascism"), one example is the Operation Infektion.

Russia might take Alaska as a down payment...but that wouldn't be enough to give up Sevastopol.
I think he'll go to open shooting before giving that up. They'd do well to just make peace with the idea the Russian Naval base is there until the lease is up or Moscow chooses to vacate.
