    Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev says if tensions between Russia and European powers over Ukraine go unchecked, it "would unavoidably lead to a nuclear war."http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/gorbachev-nuclear-war-ukraine/2015/01/10/id/617762/

    Well the radical Muslims would stand to lose the most if Europe goes nuclear. Then their new Mecca will be unlivable for a few hundred years.

    What I find strange is the 180 in Gorbachev. A few weeks ago he was not singing praises to Putin, and now he is. He must have had a visit by the secret police :smilewinkgrin::smilewinkgrin:

    The Road To War With Russia – We’re not only on it; we’ve already arrived

    For several weeks now the anti-Russian stance in the US press has quieted down. Presumably because the political leadership has moved its attention on to other things, and the media flock has followed suit.

    Have you read much about Ukraine and Russia recently?

    I thought not, despite the fact that there’s plenty of serious action — both there as well as related activity in the US — going on that deserves our careful attention.

    Don't know what the slang name for them is. The general category is swimming suit. I think that I saw the picture of Putin and your prime minister. Americans call that beefcake.

    It used to be that leaders set the standard, not the bad example:
