It seems incredible that so few of the people that offer an opinion on the matter have attempted to approach the issue from the perspective that would be valid if (for example) the US was in the midst of civil-war and the Russian govt was of the mind that pre-emptive strikes against the Obama regime (oops, should that be Administration in a first-world country? :p) were appropriate.There would (quite rightly, in my opinion) be a massive outcry against the Russians and intense questioning of what on earth gives them the right to interfere in the affairs of a sovereign state.
That, wizdum,was the single-most level-headed approach I'm yet to encounter with respect to current world events. Wouldn't the world be a radically different place if we all empathized with, rather than demonized people!
oh that's just your overly libtard professor indoctrinating you into the communist democratic party (ducks and runs)(before anyone jump up my bum, I am highly moderate)
