George W. Bush didn’t get it. Barack Obama doesn’t get it. In fact other than Ronald Reagan I don’t think any US POTUS has understood the Russian situation since John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson. There are mad dog leaders out there whom like to wave their dick-egos, like a swinging wrecking ball threatening your home. And worse, some of those leaders aren’t just paper tigers. Some like Vlad “the Slayer” Putin have doomsday weapon capability to back up their egotistical insanity. And you can bet that among his advisers, and possibly within his own egocentricity, there will be those whom think modern weaponry capabilities make a winnable nuclear war possible. And no doubt there are even some war hawks among nuclear nations, whose hatred for the opposition is so intense, they don’t care if a nuclear war is winnable. Of course in a nuclear weapons race another thing to worry about besides the Putin-Whack-Jobs is the possibility of human error. To all those Non-Boomer generations welcome to the New and Improved Duck and Cover realities. Tick-Tock-Tick-Tock-Tick-Tock!
