We have to show the Russians that we are tough? Putin is not that stupid.
Did you hear about Putin stealing somebody’s super bowl ring?
Man.....thugs....that whole country filled with thieves and thugs.
No, I think Cheney was right as he pointed out...all of North Africa is now on fire, and fertile breeding grounds for the murdering moslem hoardes, especially with the assistance of Obama enabling the elimination of the despot "safety valves" on those pressure cookers.
The unspoken reality is, those dictators (The Shah, Hussein, Kadaffy, Mubaric, A$$head etc) is they were evil bastards, but they were "our" evil bastards....holding down the very animals we are dealing with in the "War on Terror".
The proper way to deal with any one of them, who got out of hand, was to take him out, and replace him with another. Carter and Obama frigged up this concept, either through stupidity or deliberate design.
