    Do you think that maybe the way our leaders seem to be attacking any country that they feel like that maybe the Russians are getting nervous.We’ve been acting like Nazi Germany at the beginning of the war.We just bomb whoever we want to.Well not we,but our Council on Foreign Relations guided government.It seems to be at the point that our governmental leaders don’t care in the least what concerns Americans might have about our being aggressive all over the world.I’m not anti war but i’m anti bullying any small country that offends us.It’s not like we’d dare to screw with China or Russia.
