War is a funny thing. So often these big guys point their guns and make their threats but never do anything. I was thinking about it the other day. Have you ever seen two guys getting into an argument, testosterone starts to flow and they stand up and challenge each other. They spout things out as a challenge and say stuff to rebuff the other guy. Fortunately, most of those outburts end up with both backing down because they dont' really want to fight as they know what will happen if they do. i worried about this too and mentioned how Russia has always wanted the U.S. to fall - and the response was, no they don't, of they'd fall too. So much of this is just bogus bull shit to see how far the other guy will go or get him to back down. The scary thing is, the whole world seems to be doing it right now. Kind of reminds me of the Cuban missile crisis we had with Kennedy and everyone was building bomb shelters.
