Phil: Let's just send a bunch of lawyers over there to start a class action lawsuit against Russia. With congress' override of the President's veto, they have created a new warfare arena, civil court. It may work in the end to keep countries inline (ideologies are one thing, money's another), but it'll be a long bumpy road for everyone before we get there, especially for the US among our enemies and "allies" alike.

And now every lawyer in the world will primarily see America as the world's biggest insurance company and open for business. I didn't think the schmucks in congress were this stupid, but like Forrest's mom said, "stupid is as stupid does."
