So now I get it... Russia has quietly gone backwards, back to the good old days…. It watched, as we wasted the last two decades on military actions that wasted our financial and military capabilities. And worse, watched as the small minded tried to ruin the basic idea behind our great nation's historic meaning. And now, as the petty, and greedy, spew their hatred, causing division and strife, Putin, has begun his attack. First Ukraine and then what, Poland? 
As opposed to the enemy that we've been facing, Al-Qaeda's of the world... Putin's actions with Yugoslavia, along with his current meanderings of the facts, reveals what might be the truth of his plans for the future of his country and for the world. Considering the fact that his time in office, is supposedly ending soon, scarily that could change… dictator perhaps, Czah? He doesn't act like a man whose gonna give up command easily. Perhaps this is the legacy he wishes to be remembered for... the reformation of the Soviet Union. Perhaps he's just testing us to see how far he can go. After all, Georgia, is still under his control.
Scary thoughts I know, but as opposed to the battle we have been engaged in, the possibility of military action between the US & Russia means a real good old fashioned war might be a brewing! And listening to the Republicans, the zeal for that possiblitiy, of war, plus their hatred for President Obama have seemed to merge into one common denominator: whose gonna be taking over the White House in 2016? This possibility of War, could have a major factor in who wins the next Presidency. A women in charge of our nation's defense, during a time of war, against the biggest threat to democracy in our world? I can already see them spewing that garbage. Perhaps Biden might have his chance now? Or perhaps this opens up the Republicans... After all aren't they better at defense? Haven't they proven their military genius the last 15 or 20 years... Maybe, instead, they should take a back seat and let somebody else do the job. 
Maybe just maybe, rational minds will prevail. Right…
Post script
Maybe it's because of Hillary Clinton's recent commentary comparing what Putin is doing to what The Nazi's did... 
“Now if this sounds familiar, it’s what Hitler did back in the 30s,” Clinton said, according to the Press-Telegram of Long Beach. “Hitler kept saying: ‘They’re not being treated right. I must go and protect my people.’ And that’s what’s gotten everybody so nervous.”
Responding to a question submitted at the UCLA talk, Clinton said “The claims by President Putin and other Russians that they had to go into Crimea and maybe further into eastern Ukraine because they had to protect the Russian minorities, that is reminiscent of claims that were made back in the 1930s when Germany under the Nazis kept talking about how they had to protect German minorities in Poland and Czechoslovakia and elsewhere throughout Europe”  
But I just had the most vivid, mini-movie? You know when you imagine an entire moment, and see it in your mind as if it was occurring, anyway...Today's news report of the ever escalating events in the Ukraine, a map of the area, showcasing what possibly is on the horizon, specificity if no one stops, what now seems inevitable. The reformation of the Soviet Empire. A little dramatic, perhaps... And then the mini-movie began. 
The recent Russian Olympic games. Specifically, the opening and closing ceremony's. In my mind I watched as a second scene appeared, this one in black and white, that overlapped the first merging the two scenes together as one. The second scene was of the 1940's Olympic Games, and I imagined Adolf and his brethren, side-by-side with Putin and the guests at the Russian arena.
A little creepy, a little scary but mostly eye-opening. Making it more unnerving is the statements by some of the leading members of the Right Wing. Using their petty beliefs and personal ambitions to go after our Presidents policies and accomplishments. His character and worst, the ones whose tones radiate vile racist agendas. At a time when it feels like the Rise of the Iron Curtain is upon us, to have these vipers in our midst spouting off comments that can only hurt, more they will ever help our great nation. By trying to make our President into their twisted interpretation of who he really is. It is rather ironic that these so-called proud Patriots attack our President, they seem to be praising Putin. Really? What a great leader that Putin is! Lets sing his praises. Well fellas if you keep of the drum beat, maybe you better start learning Russian. Or perhaps some or all of you already speak it!
How do I say this nicely, get your heads out if your asses already!
