With the administration's handling of the Georgia/Russia dust-up, we have witnessed the most dangerous stupidity ever by a U.S. presidency. The Bush administration has done everything it can to poke a stick in the eye of the Russians, surrounding it with missiles and getting former Soviet republics to join NATO. Are you prepared to send your sons to Georgia to solidify its borders? I'm not. We should be cultivating our relationship with Russia. Look how far they have come. With closer ties, they can make it all the way — unless we provoke another Cold War.
