    Are you going to join when you're old enough?

    These small countries have far larger Russian minorities to subvert than Ukraine has after all so they have plenty to worry about
    If the European high court decides to grant asylum to an American deserter tomorrow? I don't kknow how we can dedicate troops to any European problems. That would make it really diffucult to trust them.

    I didn't say those tank divisions had to be American.

    Putin is a Russian of the old school. Unless diplomacy has some muscle behind it it will be ignored just like it has in Ukraine.

    You are certainly right about the nature of the beast.

    Thats true and he can read Obama like an open book-and the word muscle isn't in there.

    Yet weirdly many of your countrymen feel he is the one complicit in causing the conflict in Ukraine and not Putin ! As a non American I actually view his administration as perhaps the most isolationist we have seen since WW2. It just shows you how easily some people can be willingly propagandised and the Russians have launched a concerted assault on the free western media and cyberspace in order to confound and confuse the gullible about their latest military adventure.

    They will do the same with the Baltics too once they decide its their turn

    Maybe as an officer. It's definitely something of consideration.

    Is it not true that we have, on paper and from what most people believe, the strongest military in the world?


    "rah rah rah"

    Nationalism, deal with it. There are American nationalists, that's a thing.

    How many countries has Obama attacked? I dont know that I'd call him isolationist-but rather an indecisive fool. Its going to take a stronger leader to address Putin, we dont have one with Obama-and both the US and Europe need that right now.
