someonelse: This is absurd. All the GOP talking faces complain that the president is being weak and indecisive. But not a single one of them offers anything remotely specific about what they would have him do. Even a halfwit who is barely paying attention can see the flaw there.


I'd be worried if I were you, because if they are going to start a war then you know they are going to send someonelse.

Thats all I'm sayin' everyone needs to take a deep breath and relax. Seriously last month a lot of these people were making Putin attention whore jokes on par with Fatty Kim and now all of a sudden he's going to conquer the world because Obama is a liberal painty waist.

ScaryBottles: hiker9999: ScaryBottles: hiker9999: meat0918: Obama's affection for the movie the Princess Bride is widely known.

Plus, we're already involved in one land war in Asia, why on god's green Earth would we get involved in another?

I think we should hold off on invading Russia....until wintertime.  Wintertime invasions of Russia always end well, right?

Do you really believe that A: if we went to war it would be fought on the ground not with drones and planes and B: Russia would stand a chance even if we did?

Air superiority cannot hold an occupy territory.

Why would we occupy it? All we need to do is make it too bloody for Putin to hang on to it and we can absolutely do that. We aren't the ones going after new territory so why occupy? Like I just said though why bomb at all when we can destroy their fragile economy which will have the same end result, they are forced to abandon Crimea.



Problem is, Putin is both violent, and crazy.  If we bloody his nose, there's no real telling what he'll do, or where.  At least with ground forces, the carnage can be (somewhat) localized.

Well as I said to a pp what you seem be ignoring is that China our top trading partner, who's economy inextricably entwined with our own is not going to allow us to lose or even be significantly embarrassed. Putin won't just be fighting us and he won't just be fighting in Crimea, he will have put himself in between the proverbial rock and hard place. Maybe you don't get that but I bet he does. This is all over the second the first U.S. boot hits the ground as I said it just remains to be seen if we will. As to the whys and hows I outlined them several times upthread. Sorry but I'm just not terrified of Russia militarily they might as well be fighting with sabers from horseback when compared to us or China.

Maybe we just misheard him and he really said the Republican Party SHOULD be the party of stupid. At least, if we judge him by what he has said since then, he definitely seems to be fully endorsing Republican stupidity.

whidbey: Mikey1969: whidbey: Get back to us when you know what volcanoes are and what they do, Bobby.

And we would not want a failure in you in office with access to air strikes.

How the fark did I miss THAT one? Seriously, I would bet that even Sarah Palin can understand why we would 'monitor' volcanoes.

They don't actually exist in most of the lower 48, so I guess he thought that argument was a bird.

And the ones that do exist are all covered in snow or are huge steaming calderas like Yellowstone, and aren't real volcanoes. Those are some hearty people up there in WY. They'll find a way to adapt if it does go up lots of caves up there, which if it did erupt certainly wouldn't happen in our lifetimes.

/and so on


The thing about that comment that struck me is that Bobby is old enough to remember Mt. St. Helens. He farking knows that there are volcanoes in the lower 48 and that they can cause huge amounts of damage.
