Republicans have accused Obama of being too friendly toward Russia during his first term, when he attempted to “reset” U.S.-Russia relations. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called Obama “the most naive president in history” and suggested that he revive missile-defense programs and issue targeted sanctions against the regime.

Do you trust your leaders with your children?

“War” is a counterculture era soul song written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong for the Motown label in 1969.

Who wants to go to war against Russia over Ukraine? Those brave politicians with hawkish views of the world should be the first to volunteer to bring the stars and stripes into Crimea. Wasn’t there a boat shadowing our Olympians in that region when our rich kids were having fun in Sochi? Where in the world is our naval fleet?

Hopefully this doesn’t become another tug of war to destroy a nation by two super powers who always manage to choose a foreign fighting arena.
