Polticians are postering and you've already got us in a war with plane shoot-down hypotheticals. Pathetic. Boss Putin's got a weak hand backing Syria. But if they don't sustain their creds are lost. There's plenty of wiggle room for all politicians to claim victory.
War? Don't be nutty. After Bush decided on a show of real power to secure regional oil, it took him nearly a year to build poll support.
