    largest member by size. It would be an important friend for the US to have in Eastern Europe. Just last week, the news stories were all saying that Ukraine has an educated workforce that could be brought up to first world standards. That would result in huge economic gains and may be a much safer place to invest than in Russia proper, where Putin and his henchmen call all the shots. Perhaps that is Putin's real fear. Other Former Soviet Republics may begin to outshine him. But, now, all of a sudden people say 46 million Ukrainians don't matter. I don't think that is correct.

    I know you are often correct about many OTHER things, but even Armando and kos can be wrong sometimes.  

    Just doing my part to piss off right wing nuts, one smart ass comment at a time.

        You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.
