re: Obama Russia doesn't want war with U.S. - trackfan
[quote]What Obama said was correct, Russia doesn't want and couldn't win a war with us. [/quote] But the reverse is also true - the U.S. doesn't want and couldn't win a war with Russia. Reagan and Gorbachev already went through this, so why are Obama and Putin trying to reinvent the wheel?...

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...

[quote]Well, if it's his, more power to him.

Within the U.S., the headline is accurate because since 9/11, it's so hard far Islamic jihadists to get into this country, while anti-government right-wingers are already here. However, world-wide, Islamic jihadists are far more dangerous, since they are active globally, while right-winger radicals ...
