…Sarah Palin is threatening to take us to war with Russia. Because, you see, we’re all Georgians now, or some such shit, and Palin learned all about Russia and foreign policy and stuff by osmosis, pretty much like Paul Constant is getting diabetes through osmosis right now because I left that cake from Babeland sitting on table behind his desk.
Anyway, war with Russia—neat!
So, um, how would we feel if Russia formed a strategic alliance with, say, Cuba, and maybe put some missiles, or maybe a missile-shield system, on that island? Or in Panama? Or Venezuela? Or Greenland? Or Mexico? I realize Russia is a piece-of-shit, crypto-fascist oil state run by a bunch of thugs, but don’t they get to have “zone of influence” just like we do? Do we really want to run NATO right up to their borders and dare ‘em to fire the first shot? Can’t we all just get along?
