    Everywhere. And from her house, too. But Obama has already promised to Putin earlier, that in his second term, he will be more flexible. Translated from diplomatic language, this means that Obama will bend his body and sucks Putin's dick.

    Let me try to simply it. Only a person with a gun can stop another person with a gun. Doesn't mean you have to shoot the person to stop them. That's why, for example, I can not recall anyone trying to mug or rob a cop - even if the mugger or robber is armed.

    But, to your mind, having a gun for self defense means you are going to shoot someone because you have it.
    While I'm all for people owning guns, I completely disagree with the belief that "only a person with a gun can stop another person with a gun". You can disarm a person with a gun without using another gun. Sometimes talking them down actually does work. Sometimes threatening harsher penalties for not complying works. Sometimes simply tackling the person works. Tasers can even work. It all depends on the situation. And you shouldn't always shoot the person with the gun to disarm them either. It is not always necessary. Sometimes using a gun to disarm the person with the gun can make the situation a whole lot worse. And when it comes to the real point of the analogy here, that is definitely going to be the case in the majority of cases.

    More nonsense.

    Re: Drop a nuclear bomb on Russia to stop the Crimea from becoming part of Russia?

    Now, about the comment. Pretty sure she was talking about how much nuclear weapons we have.

    The issue I see with this though really is the fact that we have plenty to retaliate many times over should it become necessary. There is no need to have so many more nukes than it would take to actually do the job, and we already have that now, even with downsizing of our nuclear caches. If Russia attacks us or threatens to attack us with nukes, they know that it is a no-win situation, even if we have less than them. Some people learned nothing from "War Games". Thermonuclear warfare is always a no-win game. Both sides will always lose so long as they both have just a few nukes. What is the point of ensuring that you have the same amount of nukes as the other side exactly, if it doesn't take that many (at all) to destroy the other side?

    I will suggest that Tina plays stupid well, and you like her better because sarah isn't as dumb as you would like her to be.

    I got a laugh when Sarah said she did Halloween as Tina Fey.

    There are millions of people in that region who don't kill Russians only because they don't have the means to do so. We have piles of that hardware.

    Obama doesn't know how to play poker. Putin does.
    First many non nuke countries can stand up to nuke armed nations of have you forgotten Vietnam, and Afghanistan in the 80's? Course Iran sees the world your way and is busy trying to 'nuke up'.

    Next, it is more accurate to say there are millions of people in the region who would kill everyone not like them if they had the hardware and once given out VERY difficult to gather back up. Again have you forgotten Afghanistan and apparently Libya?

    Obama isn't willing to play Russian Roulette any more than BushII was in Georgia.

    She wasn't advocating a Nuke strike and the OP is highly dishonest.
