    We live near a defective nuclear plant - big crack in the containment chamber. Its turned off, but will take over a decade to totally shut down.

    Sometimes they broadcast a warning that if we hear a siren go off, we should promptly go into our houses and close all the doors and windows.

    That is the end of the advice too. Why? So they know where to find our bodies I suppose.

    Who cares what the masses think, other then the ignorant masses?

    These are the same political ignoramuses that re-elected both G.W. Bush and Obama...they are clearly clueless about the world we live in.

    here's what i want the US to do about Russia :

    1. fix our damned roads
    2. hire some damned people to do some damned **** so that our economy is better
    3. replace the damned transportation energy model
    4. upgrade the damned electrical grid


    that's what the US should do about Russia. that's also what the US should do about China. stop poking the damned tiger who is half a world away. Europe, this one is on you.
    Conservative reaction to Russian actions is the threat to America. Though the Cons never want to spend any money on anything meaningful, as soon as the Cons feel they are losing the Big Dick contest, the credit cards come out (as do the wackadoo ideas... like talking about nukes...)

    Economics and military industrial complex go hand-in-hand for the top bad ass countries. Economics slump...at the very least create tension between major players...then escalate it to the point of of the appearance of world destruction...then a huge peace keeping summit emerges. Meanwhile the production of military weapons, etc go sky high, lots of folks go back to work, governments print a lot more phony money...yadda, yadda, yadda....and the circle jerk continues on and on and on and on.

    So, you are saying massive government spending is a ticket to economic health?

    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?
    I voted not really in the sense that if we went to war against Russia we would win.But if did go to war against Russia it would cost us lots of lives and money.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Win???

    Do you honestly think there'd be a "winner" in a US-Russia war?

    In a sense where one country is the victor over the other? Yes. However there would be a high body count and massive environmental destruction..

    The "winners" would be possibly Australia and some other countries in the deep southern hemisphere.

    Just about anyone in the Northern Hemisphere would probably not classify themselves as winners if such a war happened today.

    Of course a lot might depend on prevailing winds and such........
