    Don’t worry, even if I weren’t I don’t have artillery. And my drone is unarmed.

    If the rebels were “our” rebels, we’d shell the government troops or make sure that the rebels could. If they weren’t ours, we’d drone the rebels to death.

    Both would be wrong, but that’s what ObamaLLP would do.

    Boxturtle (And they’d deny both if they could)

    Yup. One that he expected and was waiting for. Did it look to you like the movement of Russian troops into Ukraine was quickly planned over a few days or like it was planned and positioned weeks prior?

    Boxturtle (If the former, that’s pretty good planning for as fast as it was)

    No, I’m surmising that those protests were orchestrated by the US/NATO, per the recording of US Assistant Secretary of State Nuland.

    Boxturtle (The Protests didn’t start until AFTER the president signed with Putin)

    Max public stated altitude for a shoulder fired unit is about 12,000ft. The actual limit is probably a little higher, but nowhere near the 33,000ft that the aircraft was flying. It had to be a fixed or truck mounted weapon.

    Boxturtle (Nobody has suggested that it could be another aircraft that fired the shot)

    Ukraine just held elections, I wouldn’t use the word “free”. Both the US and Russia meddled and they’re not done. They had a free election not too long ago, the elected president accepted Putin’s offer over Obama’s, so we started a revolution to replace him with someone more to our liking. Boxturtle (And botched it [...]

    Ukraine lies. NATO lies. I think the plan was to put our own man in charge, then “drift” to NATO by solidifying links to the EU while reducing links to Russia. Eventually they’d be de facto NATO, as almost all of Europe’s gas flows through Ukraine and NATO would have to act to protect supply [...]

    Putin describes negotiating with Obama. Maybe true, maybe not.

    Boxturtle (FWIW, it seems a pretty accurate description)

    I don’t want another cold war and I don’t think we need one. We’re going to lose one of our pet dictators and Putin is going to get one of his. Or our dictators are going to share what’s there. There aren’t going to be free elections, neither side (US or Russia) wants that and [...]

    I haven’t reached rational conclusions yet. I just want a revolution.

    Christians and Atheists can find the silliest things to sue over. Bet I could find a cross on the Statue of Freedom on the US capital if I looked. And there are crescent moons EVERYWHERE. Ya ever notice Atheists always seem to sue Christians? Surely, Moslems, Hindus, Buddhists, and the Jews have offensive religious symbols [...]

    I don’t know what to do.

    1) Coffee
    2) Breakfast & coffee
    3) Brush teeth
    4) get dressed
    5) Step outside and start the revolution!

    Boxturtle (My step #5 is let the dogs out, step 6 is revolution. Adjust to your own circumstances)

    OT: Some local to me context on the current immigration. Short form: Dayton’s mayor has, at the request of HHS, opened Dayton’s doors to some. Ohio’s Congresscritter Mike Turner (R, Dayton) fears “severe negative impact” from these children.

    Boxturtle (He should fear them. I’ll drive ‘em over to egg his house myself)

    51 here, supposed to reach 74. Not bad for the dog days of summer, eh? Context is important, that’s why the MSM does NOT deal with it. Lousy SOB’s are trying to sell us another cold war, I guess we’re running out of terrorist enemies. And neocons cannot exist without an enemy. I read on [...]

    Prediction (US only): Russia: OMG OMG PUTIN IS A MONSTER OMG Gaza: Peaceful Israelis once more attacked by Gaza terrorists using Iranian weapons from tunnels produced when Israel kindly relaxed their inspections under heavy international pressure and allowed terrorists to acquire building materials. And Kerry sucks. Boxturtle (it’s tough to get all Israels talking points [...]

    Good Morning All! My, an early post. I thought I was the only OE up at this hour. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: This was a horrible accident. EVERYBODY, from the person who pushed the button all the way up the chain to the person who gave the order, wishes this [...]

    This is going to sound horribly sexist, but I wonder how many of them are zealots and how many are just doing what their husband/preacher tell them without really understanding the consequences.

    How bad can water be that is sent through the faucet?

    You don’t REALLY want that question answered, do you?
