    Might I remind folks and chickenhawks that Russia really DOES HAVE nuclear weapons with delivery capability? Ukraine is for Ukraine, Russia, and the EU to work out, we have no dog in the fight, and should muzzle our war dogs who shout big, while hiding in the very back of their kennels.

    Benson is truly the unthinking man’s conservative cartoonist. BHO made the same mistake GWB made with Putin & Georgia, the same mistake GHB made with Hussein & Kuwait… Sending in troops isn’t an option. Benson was gung-ho for Iraq, & seems to think there is no limit to how much money & how many lives we should spend on foreign adventures.

    Despite Da Trout’s suggestion that we don’t have a dog in this fight, we do. An unstable Europe isn’t good for America. We should be supporting Russia’s neighbors who are threatened by Putin’s expansionism because they share our ideals of free markets & Democracy.

    Economically, the US & Russia aren’t dependent on one another, but Europe & Russia are. The Euro-chucks have a lot more leverage. The response to Putin should come from the EU & (for those States that are members) from NATO.

    There really is no military option, contrary to what the right-wing pundits keep screaming about. They are only trying to make political points out of this, to the detriment of the nation.
    Then again, them’s the same folks who didn’t mind obstructing any kind of progress, to the detriment of the nation, for political reasons.

    Putin may have to be fought, just as we had no choice in fighting Hitler. He may take over Europe if we don’t, but we are no where near deciding that yet. There are 450 nuclear warheads aimed at Russian targets sitting in American silos. And, our Armed Forces are twice as big and much better armed than Russia’s. We have a much bigger and stronger economy than Russia. We can support a much larger and stronger war than Russia. All of those facts sitting right out of view behind that bicycle changes the picture quite a bit.

    The real issues don’t revolve around “unstable” areas, Europe, or elsewhere, but rather UNPROFITABLE to U.S. corporate interests, like well, the MIC.

    It’s cute how the Cons hate government spending, and yet expect our government to control everything in the world.

    can you explain that math for me? Thank you.
