I think we have very real possibility of proxy war with Russia.

Russian military shelling Ukraine

We definitely don't have a President (Obama) that's capable to go to any kind of war with Russia. Very poor leader under fire.

Oh yeah... remember when Romney said Russia is our biggest threat and everyone laughed. Look who's laughing now. Not that I would want Romney as President. Hopefully the Democrats keep illegals from voting to a minimum so we can have a real leader in Rand Paul as our next President. That would be something compared to the failure we've endured since 08'

Yes, Romney was correct, but this was the "broken clock" kind of correctness.

Yes, I don't think Obama's administration are capable of handling potential escalation with Russia.

No, I don't think there is any merit to "illegals from voting" hysteria. There is just no credible evidence of this happening.

I'm still not sure how Russia is our biggest threat, or why we even care about what happens in Europe. Let Germany and France subsidize their own gas pipeline defense.

Derid, play out "EU in deep recession" scenario in your head. This is why it is our problem.

Yeah I have. And so what?

Even if it is the case... printing massive amounts of money to subsidize the EU - financially, militarily, in general - is one of the primary reasons the global economy is on eggshells in the first place.

The status quo of the USA subsidizing Europe's various fallacies cannot continue indefinitely. Its well past time for some tough love.

Well, at least you are consistent in pursuing both domestic and foreign monetary policy that leads to recession. Global economy in not a zero-sum game, everyone can win or everyone could lose.

Falling prey to what in terms likely most recognizable to you is analogous to the planning fallacy is not anti recession.

You are consistent in regards to short sighted thinking and missing the forest for the trees though.

We are now at the century mark of the US seriously meddling to no long term good with the affairs of Europe and Asia, starting with WW1. Still, very few have learned the lessons of history or realized that Washington had it right.
