"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Modern warfare between powerful nations is economic, not military. Military conflict between Russia and the US could lead to some pretty serious consequences, as anyone can see.
and, Russia is losing the economic war just now. It seems to me that we're doing exactly what needs to be done.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
We could call back Boris Yelstin..a chronic alcoholic who was sometime too drunk to get out of his private plane..
1991 to 1999.
For 8 years this drunken old man had access to nuclear missiles aimed at America!!
Russia is its own problem because it produces nothing.
Vodka, caviar, and oil. That's it. Drop the oil prices, and you destroy them.
That's called poor planning, and their only response is to wage war.
