..saying Moscow is “going backward in time” with warlike actions that compel a U.S. military buildup on NATO’s eastern flank.
This is a deceitful statement.
The fact is that the West -- against Russia's strenuous objections -- is aggressively trying to expand NATO into the former USSR. In doing so, the West is threatening Russia's security and existential concerns.
That's why Russia's reacted aggressively.
In turn, the West is upping the ante by beginning to station troops on Russia's borders. The West's message is that Russia had better submit to Western aggression or worse will come.
This looks very ugly. The West is the antagonist here, not Russia.

Kerry, Obama and other members of the current administration have been supporting the Saudi and Turkish sponsored Islamic terrorists such as Al Nusra, etc. It is a scary scenario that the American government claims to be fighting terrorists on the one hand while simultaneously supporting a bunch of terrorists to further its aims of regime change.

Ted Cruz can now stop being a useless presidential candidate and return to his roots. Being a useless Senator. Ms. Clinton has successfully withstood decades of Republican attacks and brushed back Trey Gowdy's inquisitors in an 11 hour hearing. Drumph can't debate beyond two hours. I will enjoy his humiliation.

The idea of an apology by any sitting president for Truman's use of nuclear weapons would be an anathema. For those Americans who support the idea, I suggest they study the history of the moment. Truman agonized over the possibility that a million or more of our soldiers might be killed in an invasion of mainland Japan. Add to that the intransigence of the Japanese military to cease hostilities when they had clearly lost the war and a grim picture emerges. Truman made the best decision under the circumstances and a presidential apology would be an egregious insult to those who served.

Cruz is a nasty fake-Christian snake who ought to be out of office. He'll be hired by Goldman Sachs as soon as he's finished. Not only does Indiana not want him, the entire US doesn't want him. Send him back to Canada - wait - they don't want him either.

"The NATO alliance is considering establishing a rotational ground force in the Baltic states and possibly Poland, reflecting deepening worry about Russian military assertiveness, U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter said Monday."
But Russia disbanded the Warsaw Pact and the USSR. The West, meanwhile, chose to expand NATO all the way up to Russia's frontiers, even in spite of the latter's vociferous objections.
Who is really the aggressor?

Cruz is a conservative extremist. He owes favors to his super PAC contributers. Has few friends and many enemies in government. Has made an awful choice of VP. Has connived his way to electoral wins. Has lied his way through his Iowa win. In short, I neither like the guy nor trust him.

God bless Paul Bremer for showing the Iraqis how to do corruption properly. That $8.8 billion he "lost" was money well-slipped into politicians pockets, and the Summer jobs for young Republicans program, a master stroke!
Too bad that Maliki guy is gone now. It sounds like Sadr may be trying to put government on an honest keel. That'll be a real change.

VP Biden has been right for years about Iraq: It is an inherently untenable entity. Like it or not, Iraq is three separate nations ungovernable from any one capital -- Kurdistan, Sunni, and Shiite. Our British friends helped to create this mess called modern Iraq almost a century ago, and the laws of physics and entropy are driving it back into its three very distinct and uncooperative (beyond some occasional very short term agreements) component nations. Unless the U.S. is willing to spend decades there in a massive, expensive effort to keep a lid on the boiling pot, Iraq will soon disintegrate into three parts. It will never turn into something akin to a Western democracy.

Bush created that mess, the American taxpayer was handed the bill and we're still paying for it. Billions of taxpayer money magically disappeared and is still disappearing in the sandbox. American lives were lost and a lot more are disabled and all for what? Demand the politicians send their sons and daughters first if war is such a great idea.

'Musudan missiles have a potential range of about 3,500 kilometers (2,180 miles), which would put U.S. military bases in Guam within their striking distance.'
Actually, it's range is about 23 feet.
