Okay, so we’d like to get to know Sarah Palin prior to the election but maybe it’s better to put her back in the closet and just hope for the best.  Is she going to talk us into a war with Russia?  

Republicans may think that it’s oh so cute having a gun-totin’, shoot from the hip, “pro-life” hottie hockey mommy in smart glasses pretend to be VP for a day but the world is starting to listen to Sarah Palin —- and that —- that is a problem.   It’s dangerous.

Sarah Palin: USA might have to go to war with Russia ·

Sarah Palin, nicedeb.files.wordpress.comAlaska Gov. Sarah Palin, emerging from media silence for her first serious interview as the GOP vice presidential pick, said Thursday that the United States might have to go to war if Russia were to invade Georgia again.

Palin made her statements during an interview with ABC “World News” anchor Charles Gibson in which she was pressed on her foreign policy credentials and knowledge, San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Palin said she favors admitting Georgia and Ukraine to NATO. Asked if the United States would have to go to war if Russia again invaded Georgia when it was a NATO member, 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.”

Russia’s Navy is ready to response to any aggression

 

Russia’s Navy is ready to response to any aggression · 2008-09-09 16:38

Russia’s Navy, www.daylife.comRussia’s Navy remains a strong force capable of repelling any attack by a potential aggressor, a Navy spokesman said on Tuesday.

“The Navy remains a serious deterrent prepared to thwart any threat to Russia’s national security, and if necessary provide an adequate response to any act of aggression,” Capt. 1st Rank Igor Dygalo said.

Russia announced it will send a naval task group, comprising nuclear-powered missile cruiser Pyotr Velikiy (Peter the Great) and support ships, for a sortie in the Atlantic Ocean, and to participate in joint naval drills with the Venezuelan Navy in November, RIA Novosti informs.

Washington immediately responded by mocking the Russian move, which is widely considered a response to NATO’s increased naval presence in the Black Sea following a brief military conflict between Russia and Georgia over South Ossetia.

U.S. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack jokingly said that if Russia really intended to send ships to the Caribbean, “then they found a few ships that can make it that far.”

Commenting on this statement, Dygalo said: “Do not forget that the Russian Navy has nuclear submarines and surface ships capable of conducting training and combat missions anywhere in the world.”

    Ummm…Wake up? The US would be bound by treaty to render military aid to ANY country that was a member of NATO. That’s what the NATO treaty is all about.

    So what’s your problem? Do you dislike the US honoring its treaties?

    Wake up? You have to be joking.

    ___________

    Gibson: Do you agree with the Bush Doctrine?

    Palin: In what respect, Charlie?

    Gibson: What do you interpret it to be?

    Palin: His worldview.

    Gibson: No, No, the Bush Doctrine. He enunciated it in September 2002, before the Iraq War.

    The world might as well be listening to my 6 year old. He can deliver lines as well, if not better than the pit bull in lipstick. At least with him – I know I can trust him to deliver the right lines and I know that no one would seriously think that he’s doing anything other than delivering lines.

    Here is the truth, out of all of the people McCain could have picked for VP, he picked someone who knows ZIP on foreign policy.

    What did she know about foreign policy prior to the VP pick by McCain? The interviews show that 1) she didn’t know anything, 2) she had no interest in knowing anything, and 3) she disagreed with McCain.

    Her Alaska Business Monthly interview late 2006 or early 2007: “I’ve been so focused on state government, I haven’t really focused much on the war in Iraq,” she said. “I heard on the news about the new deployments, and while I support our president, Condoleezza Rice and the administration, I want to know that we have an exit plan in place; I want assurances that we are doing all we can to keep our troops safe.”

    Seven months into the surge she said this, “I’m not here to judge the idea of withdrawing, or the timeline,” she said in a teleconference interview with reporters during a July 2007 visit with Alaska National Guard troops stationed in Kuwait.

    “I’m not going to judge even the surge. I’m here to find out what Alaskans need of me as their governor.”

    As Salon.com pointed out, “That’s a little weird, since Fort Richardson, near Anchorage, has dispatched countless soldiers to Iraq, including many who did not make it back. And Palin’s own son, Track, is an infantry soldier who could go there any time.”

    Simply, the woman KNOWS NOTHING about foreign policy and you’re proud that she was able to correctly repeat her lines.

    Hey – the world is listening to his foreign policy midget. God help us if she flubs a line.

    “Shut Her up before she starts a war ? ”

    Come on Guy . Should Georgia or the Ukraine nations become members of NATO, Palins reply to this question is the very basis of the NATO treaty .

    If you don’t like the answer then “perhaps” you would be best advocating that the U.S. quits NATO in your next post . Isn’t this what you and hardcore Soviets want anyway , to have America step down allowing Russia to step up with more of what we have seen lately ?

  4. 2lesbosgoinatit says:

    Yes – shut her up. She is an idiot on foreign policy and the world is listening to our idiot not knowing if we’re all as cazy and stupid as she is or whether we’re running a comedy show instead of an election.

    Suggesting that we are ready to go to war with Russia should be way down on the Sarah Naughty Librarian list of “to do.”

    #1. She should have communicated our commitment to NATO allies in a more diplomatic way.

    #2. Georgia is not a member of NATO

    #3. The US should never feel that it is forced to go to war because of any treaty or reason.

    #4. It’s a non-answer because NATO can’t wipe it’s butt much less deal with Russia. NATO is too tied up

    #5 The treaty actually says, “The Parties of NATO agreed that an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all. Consequently they agree that, if such an armed attack occurs, each of them, in exercise of the right of individual or collective self-defense will assist the Party or Parties being attacked, individually and in concert with the other Parties, such action as it deems necessary, including the use of armed force, to restore and maintain the security of the North Atlantic area.”

    Such action as it deems necessary, including the use of armed force does not necessarily mean that other member states will respond with military action against the aggressor(s). Rather they are obliged to respond, but maintain the freedom to choose how they will respond.

    So, Palin does not need to hide behind the NATO treaty in claiming that we would be forced to go to war. There were so many better ways to answer this question.

    Bottom line – we’re listening to someone on foreign policy as educated as my 6 year old on foreign policy.

    Why are we playing this game?

    PS – we’re two “LESBOS” goin at it – not “guys” . . . which is no big deal but thought I’d clarify the meaning of lesbo for you

  5. steadycat says:

    I agree with 2lesbos. Shut her up before she starts a war.

  6. jonolan says:

    2lesbos,

    Firstly, after your point #3 I’m glad that you don’t run the country and that you don’t owe me money, or are otherwise engage with me in ANY legal or financial matter.

    Secondly, I believe that “perhaps” is a decent equivalent of “such action as it deems necessary” as it pertains to our NATO treaty obligations.

    Treaties are binding as are laws. Perhaps this is a problem for you?

  7. Brettski says:

    PS – “we’re two “LESBOS” goin at it – not “guys” . . . which is no big deal but thought I’d clarify the meaning of lesbo for you”

    No kidding , you’re LESBOs ? Gosh I would have never guess that from your handle you use , Nope , not even after reading it the first time around .LOL. But hey , just so you know my mother warned me about gals like you , to this day I still don’t know why she even bothered for all the good it ever did .

    Well lets see Les, sweetheart , it seems to me from this thread heading , your post script you felt inclined to share that you thrive on some sort of shock value as a way to belabor the points your trying to make . Even though I’m a newbie around here you need to trust me on this one . You see , when a person comes off sounding way over the top or out of balance most people will tune you out . Doesn’t really matter what side the fence your position happens to be on. Nope , most folks pay more attention to fair and level headed responses instead of listening to a unbalanced washing machine pounding its way across the floor during the spin cycle , well unless your part of that spin cycle it seems .

    Pretty presumptuous of me to share a little advise with you isn’t it ? Yes it is . I mean, I really don’t know you do I ? This being my second post I have to consider how judgemental your going to be towards my two posts or if you’re going to give me the benefit of any doubt before damning me the same way you did Palin after her first interview . Hopefully something both of us can think about LOL. —-I know I’m thinking about it just about now .

    I definitly don’t think we should be allowing Georgia into Nato…Thats ridiculous…It would put way to much pressure on the Russians…I mean lets be serious with ourselves the Georgians attacked Russian Peace-Keepers first…If Georgia was in Nato we would have been obligated to fight Russia right then and there, and that would have been ABSOLUTELY DEVASTATING…I think adding Georgia to Nato, would create almost a reverse Cuban Missile Crisis

  9. jonolan says:

    That’s a who different quest, Jameel, than the on that has the Left up in an uproar.
