  •  We live in a dangerous world. (8+ / 0-)

    Enemies are out there, lurking, waiting to invade and destroy our way of life and all that we hold dear. That is why America must be strong, powerful enough to defeat as many enemies as possible, simultaneously. So that we can defeat the enemies of freedom, democracy, and human rights. We must fight them over there before we have to fight them over here. Today, sure...just the Crimea. But tomorrow, Nebraska. Then what? It'll be too late.

    The time has come for America to stand up to everyone in the entire world. Putin and anybody else. We need to send a message to the world that we're America and we're ready for a fight. We will defend human freedom everywhere in the world, anywhere it is threatened, at any cost, no matter what.

    That's how neocons and their sycophants think. It has a robusty, wide stancy ring to it. its excitingy and boldy.

      Or, we can all be Bush-apologists, make peace signs, hold hands, sing kumbya, and ignore the world, hoping it will go away.

      It probably will go away, and take us with it. Iran should have it's first Nuke ready about now, and they're aligned with Putin.  Then there's Syria, who holds the world's greatest cache of chemical weapons. Russia has the greatest number of nuclear warheads, and with his incursion of Crimea, he can build a bridge from Russia to his seaport on the Black Sea, while taking over the two Ukrainian bases for his own military buildup.  

      That Russian seaport in Syria will be handy, there on the Mediterranean Coast, and only Turkey is in the way. Turkey will certainly surrender when the time comes, due to the total lack of credibility the USA will have by then, not supporting their allies or honoring treaties.

      Yeah, that'll work out swell!
