Yeah, JC. I don't trust reco's from Joey and company or the NYT. If I were chieftain, I'd be bouncing ideas off of different people with a rep for accuracy in assessments, as well as foreign policy people. This is not a worry for you, but reflecting upon Joe's Afghanistan fiasco, I'd say it's rational to worry. My decision to comment was from a response to your by LC who briefly mentioned that Putin would want something back to get out of Dutch with his population. After our arguments about the nuclear defense triad, using and possibly detecting US submarines, then I still hold that, how many times they gonna kill us? The Pentagon used to call this "Make the rubble bounce." So if the capability to retaliate still exists for the foreseeable future then why should I complain? Notice please that unlike Obama before and Joey afterwards, foreign policy was better for US citizens or less threatening. This was true also of Bush 43! Was it Caligula who said, "It takes a dog to eat a dog." There's my reasoning so to speak. My question to you regarding my awful proposal, is; do you think it wouldn't work, and spell out why? As former Secretary of State under Bush 41, James Baker once said, "Bribe the bastards!" I never I liked James Baker the 3rd, only that his statement opened up a possibility to settle this and save lives by giving war criminal Vlad a way out. Last. On your faux shaming of me for not trusting Joey over Vlad the Impaler, is that I surmise that your party and its financiers, hate the Great Internal Enemy, much as Stalin, Mao, Kim, Pol Pot, viewed the prime enemy as within country. I size your voters as really good with this. You guys are always worried that Donny was soft on Vlad, and "How unpatriotic!" I would say (I am not complaining here) that you guys hate us, the Rep voter far more than Xi's China, or the Ayatollahs (look at Joey go!), or anyone else. It's us. Happy Easter.

And you pretend to be tough and yet you're so scared of Putin getting mad that you think he should be rewarded for invading Ukraine by having the USA invite him to put ICBMs with H-bomb warheads in Cuba aimed at American cities. And you don't trust Biden but you're perfectly willing to trust your life that Donald Trump will always do the cool, calm, rational thing in any nuclear crisis. Something does not compute.
