    You may remember this one better than I, as I'm battling a nasty flu.
    When did the USA create the phenomenon known as the 'Sandinistas'?

    Kissinger was also good at playing politics with the Vietnam draft, ending it during an election year 1972.
    And, coincidentally, 1972 was the FIRST year there was no '2S' college deferment.
    I know, I was '1H' for 7 years while my buddies went to the National Guards all over the Nation .

    I'm thinking this was in the Reagan admin.

    As usual, you think inaccurately. The Sandinistas took power before Reagan became POTUS.

    But, the Russians also have an advantage. Putin is not only well, relentless in his pursuit of Russian interests, but is also highly intelligent. My bet is that though Russia would get hurt more than the EU in an embargo, none of their leaders and nobody in the Obama adminstration has the nerve and experience to call Putin's bluff and then out play him.
    That's because that would be a big bluff to call. Better we leave well enough alone.

    I'm not the one that thought "not all" meant "none". I'm not one that, when told that a classified portion of the Church Committee proceedings exists, assumed the person telling them that was unaware of the larger, unclassified portion. Your critical thinking errors go far, far beyond your opinions and corrupt the actual way to get to them.

    You claim to be "for peace", whatever that means, but go out of your way to excuse Russia's actions solely because "they're not hypocritical about law." Which isn't even true anyway, but even if it were it would make no sense.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    Any poster who quotes Chesterton deserves my support.
