I'm sure I will have something to actually say about the situation in the Ukraine soon (since when does Green Eagle not have something to say about everything?) but at this point I just want to make a domestic comment. The Republicans are already whipping themselves into a fury over the situation, with the dumbass McCain screaming that we are all Ukranians (no we're not, Mr. McCain- Green Eagle for one was born in Ohio) and the usual right wing preparations to blame Obama for every single thing that happens there (unless like, with Syrians WMD's something good comes of it, in which case, of course, they will ignore it.)
This is not an accident. Republicans realize that they are riding a losing horse with their opposition to Obamacare, and they know that, with the budget deficit left to Obama by Republicans virtually cut in half, that standard Republican whine isn't showing any promise either. So, they have to fall back on the only remaining Republican fantasy- the claim that, despite the fact that it was Democrats who guided us through both World Wars, and Republicans who engineered the greatest military blunder in our history in Iraq, it is actually only Republicans that can be trusted to guard our nation's safety by starting another war or two- particularly one on the other side of the world, right next to the enemy, which we have no hope of winning short of blasting Moscow into oblivion with a couple of hydrogen bombs. Of course, in the process of a war, we could use up all of our military equipment insuring a major Republican goal- that any loose money in the government's hands that could be foolishly used to improve life here will instead go into the hands of military contractors.
Well, get ready for the latest round of Republican war mongering- a staple since 1952.
