As fears grow regarding Russias growing militancy and seemingly anti-western posturing after Russian President Dmitry Medvedev announced that he will deploy a short-range missile system on the doorstep of the EU in the enclave of kalingrad a prominent Jewish Refusenik has stated that the US will be at war with Russia within five years.

They’ve just been biding [Biden?] their time until we were stupid enough to elect a weak, appeasing, pacifistic sock puppet.
Welcome to Obamgeddon.
Well, ‘ol Dick Morris was saying a couple days ago that he thinks Israel will hit Iran’s nuke facilities in a few months, starting a new Mideast War. Life could get very interesting...
“nor have we?”
Remember what happened under Jimmy Carter’s Presidential rein.
Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan, Shah of Iran was toppled and they stormed our Embassy took our Americans hostage and Sadat was assassinated. Oh yea, double digit inflation and interest. Gasoline shortages!
...in five years? One year after Bambi is out of office, I hope. Have Palin pick a ‘bright and respectable’ US Senator or House Representative from the Foreign Relations Committe who has national exposure and credentials.
In 2012, Palin will have a much broader and deeper knowledge of “world affairs”.
Putin is crazy.
Is 'nor have we' the question or Russia seems not to have shaken it's cold war attitudes?
How is it that these people always seem to be given the thumbs up and a whole recent history of death and destruction is ignored? The only thing about the COLD WAR that 'changed' was the Clintons set in motion to spend what was called the 'Peace Dividend', stripping DOWN our military capabilities.
Russia has spent every day since trying to build back their military hook or crook.... remember 'oil for rotten food' and how many billions they paid Saddam for oil contracts....
BHO is going to be more than tested by countries that are anti-American.
I’ll bet Hippy Dippy is a troll, a spy. Member since Nov. 5th 2008.Yeah, nice try.
He sounds like an Obamabot a useful idiot for the socialist revolution.
The army of “the one” is out here to infiltrate and destort
Obama is their man. I think he has any interest in promoting the resurgence of the USSR.
peace through strength, war through weakness. That’s how the world works.
al qaeda saw Americans as weak after 8 years of clinton. Then came Bush. He appeared dumb and incompetent and remember his response during 9/11 with the kids? Bush had to fight 2 wars to make up for his weakness.
“Unless the new president completely emasculates our military, we’ll be fine.”
Precisely. That’s why I’m worried.
Notice that this troll is not responding to postings.
Everytime the bear is on life support, the USA has bailed them out with foreign aid. They always come back with the same belligerent attitude.
Like a fox!
Actually I put that ‘not have we’? thing in to simply avoid someone making that comment-as would happen on so many forums, I see that won’t be a problem here-ingore it.
I don’t see the problem with the post
He has any interest in promoting the resurgence of USSR?
I don’t know if Hippy is a troll...
Anyway Russia don’t need promotion from anyone to wage its wars and go on with its agenda.
OSSAMABAMA has no control here
The Russians are not to be trusted EVER. They will always use some perceived edge in power to their gain. They also have a mental defect similar to liberalism that makes them feel entitled. The stupidest things the W administration did was let them gain economic power. W believes a strong Russia is in our interest. Nothing could bee further from the truth.
Russia won’t have to go to war with us. Their plan with BO is to re-form the Soviet Union. BO will oblige when they ask us to join it.
Yeah Barry, let’s unilaterally disarm and decimate our military. Let’s forget about that Star Wars stuff, too.<p<Wetting your short pants yet, son?
As I said I put that ‘nor have we’ to avoid a dozen replies that would say ‘are we any better’ you cant win can you.
Not with a name like ‘hippydippy’ you can’t. LOL
Sounds like you aren't very familiar with Freepers. If you are serious about being a Freeper I would sugest mostly laying a little lower while you pick up the lay of the land. if you like what you see, stick around. If not, not.
This country has elected someone who will indeed emasculate the military.
I have a background in economics and math and I can say that is pretty much the case. Barack Obama is going to be Jimmy Carter II no matter what he does. We have countervailing forces in the monetary and fiscal side of the economy. Any policy to benefit one side, hurts the other given our economic environment.
Too bad he wussed out and got a poli sci degree in college. If he had taken anything economics related, he would realize how useless his advisors are and that we are headed for a solid 2-3 year recession, longer if we get another oil supply shock from a middle east war.
This is all a replay of the 70’s. I was in Iran back then, when Carter screwed up the world. I have the feeling that Obama will again totally screw up the Middle East, Pakistan, cause a regional war, desperately trying to be a “peace president” and wreck our power and economy. In 25 years Obama will also receive the Nobel Peace prize.
Is that 2-3 years factoring in the promised tax increases on the people who create jobs in this country?
Too bad Israel ha to do our bidding.
We had an opportunity to have a good long term relationship with Russia after the breakup of the Soviet Union and WE blew it! 70 years of dealing with the Russians and the “Russian Experts” (Idiots)in our government still don’t have a clue about dealing with the Russians. Above everything else they are PARANOID...they have a system of disbelief about EVERYTHING. Regardless of our intentions...until WE prove them wrong by OUR actions they will always believe we are out to get them. Our stupidity in dealing with them is the problem..and as far as I am concerned it all goes back to the statement President Eisenhower made.. “beware the military-industrial complex”. They want to restart the cold war..they made billions on it and are crying in their beer that it is(was) over!
Hippydippy obviously doesn't realize that
a) It's unlikely that anyone here would rush to retort "maybe we aren't any better," and
b) Many Freepers might actually argue that our Cold War attitudes back then were quite honorable and justified, and that there might be good reason today to resume an attitude of distrust vis-à-vis the Russians.
Russia is a dying country and Putin is delusional
Countries fall from within( as we are in the process of doing )
and Russia is a walking corpse whose male average age span is now 59 and a country where the population is declining
Oil revenues are falling and the economic disaster that is going to hit us will hit them also
China will probably gobble up Russia’s Far East areas in the future
Impossible. We now have a pansy in an empty suit in the “Office of the President-Elect.” There can be no war, only surrender.
Russsia knows that Americans will not sign up to defend our allies under an Obama presidency. As far as the military goes I believe many of our men and women will be retiring now and will NOT come back to serve under this marxist. Sign ups will also be down.
The rest of the world will see what its like to live under tyranny now that they have gotten their leader. Good luck Israel - Jews voted 70% for Obama - the people who would of stood up and supported you are gone - middle America, the ones that die for our freedoms have a new battle and its not going to take place in the military.
“Russia is a dying country and Putin is delusional”
Russia knows that its life depends on its death - therefore watch them gobble up the weak - and use the resources and the exposure to wreak havoc. This is not about land this is about power and percieved power.
Welcome to FR.
Putin is a closet Soviet Premier. Putin has said that the fall of the USSR was the greatest geopolitical calamity. Putin has never revoked his membership in the Communist Party Soviet Union or the Communist Party Russian Federation, and even spoke at a CPRF meeting saying that the US is at fault for the economic collapse.
To be added to or removed from this list, please FReepmail me...
OK I think I got the point-thanks.
The potential flash points the Kremlin will instigate will be the Polish border, the Ukraine, Estonia (again) and Georgia (again), coupled with Moscow’s weapons sales (support) for Islamic & communist tyrannies, such as Iran, Syria(Hezballah-Hamas), Cuba, Vietnam, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Libya, plus other anti-Western dictatorships. It’s back in the USSR time, just in time to test Obama and his Carter leftovers.
