    As much as it pains me to listen to self-proclaimed “realists” like John Mearsheimer, who is characterized in a Wikipedia article as “developing the theory of offensive realism, which describes the interaction between great powers as being primarily driven by the rational desire to achieve regional hegemony in an anarchic international system,” I can’t help but conclude that the limitations of an international body like the United Nations are sewn into their very fabric. Might does truly make right. Simply put, Russia — whether or not it should have claimed the veto power of its predecessor Soviet Union — not only has the gas that some western nations need but nukes that we all fear. This is, I suppose, realism.

    Hey, Rogers, check out your buddy Kevin Kallaugher’s cartoon today. He actually gets it!

    Right. The Poles should have provided them directly to the Ukrainians instead of sending them to Ramstein.

    This is a pretty stupid argument. WWII ended with nuclear explosions over two Japanese cities. Fortunately, the notion of mutually assured destruction has prevailed among the nuclear powers following that war to prevent further, even more wide-spread use. Does Rogers expect that Putin would simply ignore his nukes and fight NATO with conventional forces? Talk about MAD.

    I get it now, thanks to this brilliant cartoon! Let’s match Russia’s military tank for tank! Heck, if it means a nuke or two just to show how tough we are, then why not?

    Liberals hated Bill Barr precisely because he carried water for Donald Trump. So now we should have the Democratic version?

    Per fivethirtyeight dot com, Biden’s poll numbers have actually started to inch back up since last week’s tornadoes. Just sayin.’
