    Putin's Russia is bad enough, but Putin's Europe...? No, just . . . no.
    Although, honestly, I'd take Putin over the COMMUNIST PARTY OF CHINA any day. (But I vehemently despise both).

    What a stupid question. But what's even worst, is that it was such a waste of potential. There's a good discussion of whether a bipolar or multi-polar world is best.

    No country or people should be considered above another, that is my response. The idea that some lives matter more than others is the root of all that is wrong with the world.

    All lives matter. But not all countries matter as much as others. The US matters more than Liechtenstein. That's a fact.

    There would be no need to ask stupid questions if people in charge of implementing U.S. foreign policy did not do stupid things.

    Now here's why this one was stupid. Actually, there's two reason for this one (it was a doubly stupid comment).

    1. As others have point out, this isn't a mutually exclusive option. For instance, in the multipolar world we live in, it's very possible that we could end up in a nuclear war that we don't start. For instance, a couple of radicals launch a coup in Pakistan. India gets a bit nervous and launches some nukes, China responds and well I'll let you fill in the pieces.

    2. This is the most important one though, you actually had a chance to have a very interesting post as I said. Which is a safer world to live in? One where super powers stare down each other with enough firepower to blow up the world many times over, or one where a nuclear war could get started, killing hundreds of millions of people, and screwing up the world in the process... without us even so much as sending in a drone?

    If it is stupid to you, fine. You are entitled to your opinion.

    Fair point. I suppose that goes for the majority of posters on this thread that said it's stupid, yes?
