Hard to understand

April 26, 2014

I do not understand why a U.S. warship is sitting in Black Sea off the Coast of Ukraine. If a Russian warship would be sitting in the Gulf Of Mexico just off the Coast of U.....

"This Russian Ukraine problem should be that of U.N. and NATO, not our problem..." - Howard Ebner

We ARE a major player of both NATO and the UN.

Howard Ebner-"When will we ever understand to mind our own business?? This Russian Ukraine problem should be that of U.N. and NATO, not our problem, so we should wise-up and clean our own door-step clean."

Yeah, that was our position during the early part of the 20th century... until we got attacked at Pearl Harbor by the Japanese and then Germany declared war on us too. How much shorter and how many less lives would have been lost had we not been pacifists back then?

We ARE NATO and we are the biggest financial contributor to the U.N. Without the U.S., it is doubtful there would be a NATO. I am somewhat concerned that our Rookie-In-Chief will ignore the advice of our military leaders and their recommendations on the proper course of action and instead rely on his cadre of lawyers on what to do. No matter what, if a shooting war does break out I am sure it won't interrupt his precious time on the golf course. Bless his heart.

Russian spy ship has been 'eavesdropping' off the US East Coast for a MONTH - Daily Mail

Once again, Howard Ebner is ill-informed.

Our President tolerates Russian, Chinese, Iranian, islamist,and North Korean aggression....on our soil and against our citizens.

"A Russian intelligence-gathering ship has been operating off the U.S. East Coast and near the Gulf of Mexico for the past month, the Pentagon said Thursday." --Washington Free Beacon, Washington Times, yesterday.

Or the other day, British jets meet Russian jets at the boundary of their international air space.

US deploys naval ships to the Arabian/Persian Gulf (name depends on which political country you support) to keep oil flowing freely.

Many countries always do it. If the US is out there patrolling anyway, why not send them to the Black Sea.

I would guess that we have a warship there because WE are Paying Ukraine to use their warships to patrol the Somali Coast to get rid of Pirates. Apparently our Navy can not take on Pirates.

And what happened to all of those Nukes that we bought to specifically Nuke Ukraine? Push the button and we don't need ships there. Bet the Republicans sold them.

"This Russian Ukraine problem should be that of U.N. and NATO, not our problem, so we should wise-up and clean our own door-step clean." - Howard Ebner

Maybe Howard is the one who should wise up. We ARE the UN and NATO. The whole idea of NATO was to have the U.S. defend all of the lazy Socialists in Europe, and the UN is just a way for the rest of the world to take advantage of the U.S. Like it or not, we are the world's policeman, and that is at the request of the world.

"Alsever,Was the article in the religious section a week or so ago about you? If so, thanks for sharing your story." - Texas

You're kidding, right? This was a near death experience where the person was not near death and had no experience. He was momentarily blacked out and everything he said was something he 'felt' or 'knew' or imagined. He actually saw nothing on this imagined trip to the afterlife. That was the lamest story I've ever seen in the SG and that's saying something.

enigma: You know we,"The United Stares" is the GREATEST contry on the planet? The only reason you call us the "policeman" of the world is because the "far right" seems to always want to put "boots on the ground"! Tell me how many people went to war from the U.S.A. since President Obama has been in office?

Enigma,

I agree that it was not an after/near death experience in the traditional definition. It was nevertheless a dramatic situation that had a large impact on his live and maybe even a metaphysical experience. I did have to go back and find the one quote that I vaguely remembered. It was "I knew that there was indeed a universal moral code." At least he understands there is an absolute moral code that God has given us all. Fairly significant in this day and age. Thank you to Mr Sever for his service.
