    O.T. - Russkies back at it....

    rather interesting read... not only do we have the "war on terror" to worry about, looks like the Russians are trying to regain military strength and agitate the Brits. Kinda reminds of a once traditional powerhouse football team trying to return to "glory." (had to make a football reference considering the time of year).

    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    At least you knew the ruskies would come at you openly. This blowing yourself up to kill people is so stupid. The thing with russians is they don't want to die...this is good for international relations. Its these yahoos that don't give a rip or would prefer to die that are the problem. How do you deal with someone that wants to kill themselves???

    With Islamic terrorism and all nowadays, it kind of makes you long for the Cold War.

    "Mutually assured destruction" worked rather well with them.

    Putin has gone nuts. I wonder how he will get around term limits.

    One more "issue" that has lost focus from both the administration and the media due to the obsession with Iraq. What do you really expect when a former KGBer is elected "president" of Russia?

    Good point. I didn't know it was possible to make this Bush's fault but you just did.

    If you would have balamed Haliburton and Chaney you would have gotten the trifecta.

    Great point? I am sure it has nothing to do with the fact that the former Soviet subjects in Eastern Europe have allied themselves with the West. It's probably just a loss of focus on Bush's part.
