Palin’s War with Russia

It’s no wonder Rhode Island Republican Sen. Lincoln Chafee called Sarah Palin a “cocky wacko”.

Sarah Palin wants Georgia and Ukraine in NATO noting that if attacked again the United States would go to war with Russia:

Asked by Gibson if the U.S. would go to war with Russia Palin said “Perhaps so. I mean, that is the agreement when you are a NATO ally, is if another country is attacked, you’re going to be expected to be called upon and help…. [As a] NATO ally if another country is attacked you’re going to be expected to be called upon and help,” she said.

Not in USA media:

In a blunt three-hour interview over lunch, Vladimir Putin turned the air blue and denied claims he is building a new Soviet empire as he defended his ’embattled and encircled’ country.

Reminding his guests that he had been at the Olympics in Beijing when the crisis broke out, Mr Putin said he was “astonished, astounded,” by the world media silence on the Georgian aggression. “What did you expect us to do? Respond with a catapult? We punched the aggressor in the face, as all the military text books prescribe.”

At this meeting, he seemed particularly intent on his new job as Prime Minister which he presented as being mainly responsible for Russia’s economy. Russia was facing problems today, he said, which demanded new solutions. “The solutions of the past wouldn’t do.” State infrastructure, housing, health and education all needed to be overhauled.

OK, don’t flame me, the point is Provocateur Palin should not enter the White House except to bring Obama her bear skin.
