    So what though? Do you honestly think Russia would start a nuclear war with the USofA???????

    That would destroy the entire world almost instantly. Russia would be incinerated, and turned into an unlivable wasteland for thousands of years.

    Why would they START something like that knowing what the end result would be?

    Are we really such pussies? Why are we so friggin scared of everybody and their brother?

    Is Russia our enemy?

    Is Russia a real threat?

    Or are people just panty-waists that have been brainwashed into fearing everything?
    A lot of us old timers never took Russia off the threat list, we just downgraded them when the USSR dissolved. Red China for us old timers is at the top of the list. On this current crisis though, we old foggies sort of view Ukraine as being in Russia’s back yard and if Russia wants to annex the Crimea, so be it. Especially if the majority of the Crimea vote to go with Russia. It is of my opinion the expansion of NATO to include the Eastern European nations, the old Warsaw Pact Countries was the beginning or the start of this crisis. I can understand the inclusion of Poland, Austria, etc. but no further east than Poland, Hungry and Romania.

    In fact I think it would have been better to disband NATO after the Warsaw Pact was dissolved. But that is just my opinion and some of us old cold war warriors. I suppose we, at least I in a way still believe in the spheres of influence. If the Crimea votes to go with Russia, that is their business, not ours.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Anyone who is antagonistic toward us and is powerful enough to cause significant damage to us and our most important allies is a threat.

    The signs were before my time, too. I think they were put up in the 50s...during the "atomic age". We have a lot of 'downwinders' in my state. It wasn't the Soviets we had to worry about...it was our own government using us for guinea pigs.

    You know what our High School policy was during a nuke attack? Walk south along the railroad tracks. When I asked why, they said we don't know.

    Basically, I took it as "you're screwed, so we'll give you something to keep your mind occupied."

    Russia is not a direct threat to the US but will be a stick in the gears in the future. China is a future and greater threat.

    I think that the majority of the people in Crimea want to break away from Russia but the percentages are exaggerated.

    I do think a new cold war is in the making at least the policy of containment will be renewed.

    No. The taking of a huge piece of Ukraine and it's trillion plus in oil, gas and resources making Ukraine permanent beggars of Russia now - after Ukraine gave up the 3rd largest nuclear arsenal in the world for promise from Russia, the USA, UK and other countries their border would be secure means there is no possible deal or treaty to make to any country for nuclear non-proliferation - as all such deals and treaties are 100% worthless.

    There is a new rule clearly established. If you do not want your country overrun by a nuclear super power, get nuclear weapons FAST! Lots of them. Anyway possible. Consider anything any super power tells you to be a lie and trick.

    That is what the lesson of Crimea is. Get nuclear weapons. Keep them. Get more.

    I don't think it will be long before those will be going up all over the world. A decade or so before back here though.
