    Here We Go Again

    Back in 62 we came to the brink of therm o nuclear warfare.
    The Russians blinked. back then we had a President who would have pulled the switch. The Russians are probing, the Chinese are probing, we have to watch Iran, and hope Pakistan does not fall into Fundamentalists hands. These are dangerous times Line In The Sand, I know you will be ready.

    Time to practice the "get under the desk" routine again. (like that would help)

    Only a few days ago I stated Putin and Chavez should be feared much more than iL Jong. I still believe Korea is not a country to fear, even in their latest stunt it wasn't the US that jumped in it was JAPAN. Whereas, Putin and Chavez with civil unrest and in control of much needed natural resource they can ruffle a lot of feathers. Under Bush we had the AXIS of EVIL, and there were only 3. Now we HAVE 4. We can see a cold war coming at the least, very quickly again if these pals that have tons of oil unite together even more(IRAN, VENEZUELA, RUSSIA and CUBA).

    I guess Obama might not kill the 22 now, since he might need to use them shortly.

    He now needs to play this hand well.

    Check out the latest Foreign Policy journal. Interesting article on Russia's future as a member of the "Axis of Upheaval". Mexico's on that list too.


    Sabre's rattling....North Korea with the "launch" threats, China in the South China Sea harrass and strip incident, Russia, Cuba, and Venezuala with the strategic bomber comments...

    I appreciated Bolton's thoughts.
