    I saw the stories and wondered how to write it. This is done well. The problem here is worse than the NAFTA problem, Russia is waiting and certainly going to be testing. Their first move would be against Poland if they think it's doable, they now have reason. Those of you who've said, "He's not president yet, well the calls coming from abroad now are not to GW, but to Barack Obama:

    Actually it was Hillary that talked to the dead (Mrs. Roosevelt).

    I said nothing about Nancy or Hillary. I wouldn't bother.

    Please get a hold of yourself. Russia is not going to invade Poland.

    They're not that stupid. They make seek to leverage their diplomatic and economic power to influence nation-states they consider in their sphere of influence. But rolling into Warsaw on the backs of tanks is not something they're going to do, nor does it serve their interests.

    Seriously, calm down. I'm just now getting over the shock of Neocons and republicans calling for war with russia over a minor border dispute in Georgia. I will bet you a months salary that four years from now, there aren't going to be russian tanks sitting in downtown Warsaw.

    Hope you are right, fear you are wrong. I don't bet, certainly not on something bad happening.

    December 6th, 1941 the very idea that Japan would attack the US was scoffed at by people like you.

    THAT worked out rather well didn't it? For the Japanese, anyway.

    Nobody ever wants to talk about December 7, 1941 do they? No, they don't. They just like to demonize us for bombing the crap out of Japan. We are so evil.

    The strength of the attacker is those people who don't believe he will attack.

    My track record is better than yours.

    I said Iraq wasn't an urgent threat to the United States, and Iraq had no plans or intentions of aiding al qaeda attack us.

    I suspect you were among the 50 million two time bush voters who were cringing in fear and demanding we invade Iraq.
