God help us all. Our leaders keep the saber rattling going…….Russia has to respond…..
It is time for us to get leaders who serve our national best interests rather than those of the war contractors. I am so sick of congress members, and our president serving every interest but that of the American people.
This is insanity. They could hit us, and if they did, it would be the west coast…….
I guess the jerks in DC don’t care if we get wiped out……we have fools in power, and they have destroyed us.
My God, look at those weapons! The sight is enough to shake up any sane person.
Here is a story that ought to be worrying every state of the EU and the US economy……..Greece.
Greek officials are meeting with Russian and Chinese leaders…..Greek leaders already assuring China they have a place in the largest Greek shipping port. Russia and China are financial and political allies, and together, they could easily step in and help Greece if they leave the Euro…..
If Greece leaves the Euro, it will start a financial unraveling that will spread throughout the Euro Zone and the US……
Another article on Greece from Bloomberg…..does not address many of the points the NY times did……..but at least they are mentioning it…
