    All of this is such baloney! Putin and the Russian Federation is NOT going to be able to do what Hitler and Germany did in the late 1930’s and early 1940’s. It just is NOT going to happen! Does anyone here with even reasonable intelligence and an understanding of recent history, even begin to think that the EU is going to give up such former USSR countries as Poland and Hungary. Let alone allow the Russians and Putin to rebuild the Iron Curtain and isolate Eastern Germany from the rest of Germany? Like the Germans themselves (still with one of the best militaries in the world) are just going to sit still and allow that to happen? President Obama is doing exactly the right thing in keeping us out of it, now and in the conceivable future!!

    Come on, Scott. You were touting the Resurrection yesterday; today you’re saying the EU should be dropping bombs instead of doing what they’re doing?
    -
    Is that because death doesn’t matter (if a fella’ buys into the concept of Easter)? Or because you don’t mind seeing other people’s kids, half a world away, blown to bits? Or both?

    Boy oh boy are you wrong on facts…

    -

    a) Neither Poland nor Hungary were ever part of the USSR. They were part of the Warsaw pact, that’s all.

    -

    b) And Germany’s army today consists of volunteers and has shrunk to about 180.000 man, all branches counted. We’ve sold nearly all of our main battle tanks (Leopard 2) and have just 224 in service. The Russians once had about 6000 of these things, don’t know how it’s today.

    -

    c) The EU is not a military alliance. There is a European military force in the planning, but it’s no use right now. So defense would fall to NATO, meaning the U.S., meaning reluctance…

    That comment of yours was a major FAIL!

    How much are you willing to raise taxes to pay for another war? Thought so.

    No need to raise taxes.

    We actually need tax cuts for the Job Creators® to raise revenue and cut backs on all the give-aways to the lazy freeloaders.

    It would be more effective if the EU would threaten Putin with air dropping all their lazy deadbeat socialists on the country. Except there is one minor problem with that. 99.99% of Western Europe’s population would end up in Russia.

    After Chamberlain declared war on Germany, the RAF bombers were sent to drop leaflets since Chamberlain didn’t want the war to escalate.


    Chamberlain had read Churchill’s article, “Shall We Commit Suicide” written in 1924. Churchill said that WWII must never happen, because both sides would use new poison gasses against which gas masks were useless and which were much more lethal than the gasses used in WWI. Aeroplanes would drop bombs filled with those gasses over all the European cities and completely depopulate the continent.


    (In one old movie, the RAF crew assigned to open the boxes and drop the leaflets dropped the full boxes instead; when one crew member said to the other that they were supposed to open the boxes first, the other crew member replied ‘This way will ’ave more of an impact,’ and the other crew member began tossing out full boxes as well.)

    Such small-minded thinking. It isn’t an option of just war or sit back and do nothing. There are lots of ways to pressure Russia outside of military action. This administration is as bad as the rest, they can’t think “outside the box”. Use the press to expose how the russians were giving the Ukraine president all those riches. Use social media to humiliate Putin. Send Rock n Roll emissaries to the Ukraine to have peaceful concerts/demonstrations. Get the church involved. Get photos of individuals standing up to tanks-type photos… Give peace a chance.

    Western Europe gets around 30% of it’s oil for heating, gas, etc from Russia. On those grounds alone, there are good reasons to use diplomacy. The Ukrainians may want us to do more to help them, but does anyone really believe they want Ukraine to become the next battlefield between the nuclear powers of the US, France, Britain, and Russia? It does appear that Ukraine, like Germany, is going to be separated into Western and Eastern sections and with the US military overextended, it would take a draft to restore the ranks to the levels needed to put boots on the ground in Ukraine as well as the areas where they are already entrenched. There is also the factor of our young people not being educated or healthy enough to serve if a draft did call them up.
    It is sad that we have needed Russia’s help in Syria, Iran, and other places, it is also sad we need them to get to the International Space Station. The time in which we could feel closer with Russia is rapidly fading, and barring moves towards peaceful resolution by Mr. Putin, we may once more find ourselves in the old, us against them cold war.
    One wonders, did they find information on Mr. Snowden’s computer, or from his conversations with them, that have given them new confidence they can act with impunity against our military and fiscal power? Have they formed relationships with corporate friends in US companies that makes them feel they won’t suffer financial hardships? Our international corporate network has many reasons to keep the peace, and yet there is always money to be made in war.
    It would be good if our media would really investigate what is going on, and why Mr. Putin is picking this time, a time when our nation is divided, financially stressed, and war weary, to make these military incursions.
    Until our cannibalistic congress stops looking at the other party as the enemy, our real enemies will feel free to act with confidence that the “Sleeping Giant” that rose up in WW2 is now a couch potato that will simply roll over and ignore the situation.
    Respectfully,
    C.
