    I have no love for Palin but the OP is so incredibly dishonest and uninformed, I actually had to defend Palin.

    Yep.

    I can't believe people here are putting up with and enjoying such dishonesty.

    And Sen. Graham quipping we'll lose Alaska to Putin.
    With friends like GOPs at this Present Moment Awareness, .......
    Palin compared it to gun control. Listen to what she said.

    And that would be a stupid comparison because nuclear warfare is used to destroy entire cities, and the levels we have entire countries or even the whole planet. Guns are used (properly anyway) as self defense or in defense of others. You don't use guns to take out the entire families and neighbors of your enemies, possibly even killing yourselves in the process, to halt the actions of some in power (unless you're a "bad guy").

    We had a nuke in the 40's and japan didn't. If they also had a nuke, we might have been afraid to drop ours on them.

    But that is not the situation we are discussing when it comes to Russia. We both have nukes, and we both have way more than enough to basically wipe out the human race on the planet (or at least take it to hunter-gatherer society levels), and everyone knows this. There is no need to have that many nukes on either side. It only takes a few to be able to counter the other side, no matter how many they have. You don't need to match their levels.
