re: How would Romney be handling the Ukraine situation? - trackfan
[quote]Romney told us in a 2012 debate that Russia was a huge threat and he was damn near laughed off the stage by the Chosen One. [/quote] And he should have been laughed off the stage unless Putin has tried to put missiles into Cuba and I missed the news reports. [quote]I think it's safe to ...

re: How would Romney be handling the Ukraine situation? - trackfan
[quote]I find this very hard to believe. Romney and Obama were at nearly opposite ends of the spectrum in considering Russia as an adversary. Dropped into this spot, sure he wouldn't have much room to maneuver but if he came in on Jan 13, I think the world is a different place. [/quote] How can any...

re: Harry Reid calls Bundy supporters 'domestic terrorists' - trackfan
[quote]Well, I'm not sure they would be called terrorists since the purpose of a terrorist is to basically create terror among the populace. [/quote] Now you're just quibbling over semantics. Terrorism is politically motivated violence or the threat of violence, everyone knows that. [quote]I don...

re: If Carter's Hostage Rescue Mission Had Succeeded . . . . - trackfan
[quote]No, the key word in your question is "all". Obama is not deserving of all the accolades, but he did deserve a great deal of them. Carter was not deserving of all the criticism, but he was deserving of some of the criticism, which is what my statement intended to convey.[/quote] Personally,...

[quote]Apply Rumsfeld's adage about going to war with the Army you have to the hostage rescue mission. There was no unity of command among the various Air Force, Army and Navy units and personnel. They did not even have common communication and/or communication security equipment. That was the milit...

[quote]Seriously, if there were another group of people who claimed to be Americans, yet remained so attached and interested in their homeland, I'd tell them the same.

[quote]However, his reelection hopes were never going to be realized. [/quote] I wouldn't characterize it that way. Initially, Carter got a bump in the polls when the Iranian took the hostages, similar to W's post-9/11 bump. In February 1980, Carter was leading Reagan 60-31 in the polls. Carter was...

I asked a rhetorical qquestion to point of the absurdity of a previous post. W's Iraq War was a different war than HW's Iraq war, no matter how much you want to parse the facts. Otherwise, W wouldn't have bothered going to either Congress or the U.N. for authorization, since that had already been gr...

re: Obama Russia doesn't want war with U.S. - trackfan
In a way, Ukraine is to Russia what Cuba was to the U.S. In 1962, we were willing to wage all-out war over Cuba, and the Soviets weren't, which is why they backed down. Similarly, Russia is a lot more willing to go to war over Ukraine than we are, which is why Obama won't intervene. We should be tha...
