    Not the Russians, Chinese, Europeans, Pakistani, and especially not any in the ME. We have something in mind if they don't chill their asses out by the year 2500. Just sayin.

    The US started with one wooden ship and a few hundred interlopers that landed on North America and told the occupants to make room. We've grown a bit since then too.

    Ah there it is......I knew you could do it Monte. Blame **** on the US for their beginnings. I knew it wouldn't be long.

    Looks like Russia and China grew from what they started off as and last year too. What you got to say about that Monte? 22nd Century land grab.

    So you mean to say its ok grabbing all the land you want as long as at some point you stop grabbing land. Face it. The US has annexed its fair share of land, and Russia and China don't give a **** what you think about it, but they've voiced their opinion, and they'll be doing just like the US and going after their interests.

    Which says nothing of the Kremlin and how they feel.




    That being said one wouldn't necessarily advocate the consumption of too much Kool-Aid regarding Russia's belligerency in Eastern Ukraine and the general thuggish and increasingly autocratic nature of its premier, Mr. Vladimir Putin. These are indeed issues to be concerned about.....snip~


    Let me guess.....you want someone else to take care of our problem for us, Right? Hope someone will come and save the day, huh?
    So what do purpose besides military action? Or are you just complaining again with no real solution?

    It should be noted that this is but one geopolitical development albeit by one of the world's major powers. With various other countries increasing their military strength, it makes little sense for the U.S. to be on fiscal path that could reduce U.S. military power, including but not limited to combat manpower, in relative and perhaps even absolute terms. In the 21st century world, power matters, just as it has in earlier periods. The notion that hard power can be supplanted by rules or international institutions is little more than a hollow rationalization that makes little or no constructive national security contribution.
    What an absolute load of Neocon nonsense.

    Food stamp usage is up over 40% in the last 8 years, the federal government is running huge deficits and the economy is being propped up by the Fed...and you are stating how important it is that American military spending be maintained at it's present rate...even though she already spends MORE then the next TEN largest military spending countries COMBINED?

    Defense Budget by Country

    That is the dumbest idea I have read on here in some time - though I am POSITIVE their are tons of other right-wingers spewing the same Neocon madness.
    If America does not get it's fiscal house in gear and figure out a way to grow her economy without government/Fed stimulus (the answer is leave the economy alone while balancing th budget, btw), then America will not be able to afford such luxuries as outspending the next 10 larger military powers for long

    Neocons are so INCREDIBLY short sighted. They are like the Paul Krugman of the right...all they want is more and more money for their 'cause'...and no matter how much they get, it is never REMOTELY enough.

    Well, had Ukraine belonged to Nato with Nato troops on the Krim? You are right and the Europeans should have realized that, when they went about the association treaty with Ukraine. But I was thinking of a more intrusive mix of measures.
