    Russia Spits in Eye of UN & America

    General Patton wanted to go into russia right at the end of world war 2 and Ike Eisenhower thought he was crazy. We will pay for what we can call "eisenhowers error" for eternity.


    Now...how do we make a positive out of this? I say we take military action against one of our greater enemies in the middle east, someone who is an ally of russia, but not that important, and now they have nothing to say. Im not saying to be vengeful, but simply therre has to be a military advanage here for us somehow with russias actions. what is it?

      Mince38, Seems to me that Gen. Patton was a classic warrior in the mold of the ancient Greeks and Romans and what he lacked as a politician was more than offset in his leadership and strategic battle skills. It was his lack as a politician that proved his undoing and sadly there are no places for warrior heros in our culture, today. Political choices that cost thousands their lives and treasure are easily made by those who have never spilt an ounce of blood. Timidity has cost us more than lives and fortune, and now threatens our very sovereignty and the lives of our children. Dialogue with men such as Ahmedinejad and Putin are not only impossible but mean little to those not possessing honor. Statesmen look to the next generation. Politicians look to the next election. JMHO

        Well said.

        I will become even more concerned when I hear those dreaded spoken words again.
