hmmm

Who decides what goes in the news?
Who decided that even though Russia has decided to conduct live missile tests from Oct 6-12 (the first time since the 1980's) in the Arctic Circle (across Belarus and near Alaska) and it's being reported in England, in Israel, and in many other countries, that it wasn't newsworthy for America?
And why did we send a battleship off the coast of Georgia the day before Russia announced these tests?
Are these tests retaliation for that act as Israel claims?
Is it simply Russia flexing its muscles as England claims?
And why are our presidential candidates keeping mum on this issue?

#1 Everything I hear and see in the news says that Russia doesn't really have many muscles left.

#2 And a battleship off of Georgia doesn't bother me (perhaps they're going to a Bulldogs game? ;-). Now if it had parked off of North Carolina, then I'd be worried!

No, we put a battleship off the country of Georgia the day before Russia announced the missile tests.

You REALLY need to work on your sense of humor, Monica. Or you think I'm incredibly stupid (don't answer that). Either way, I'll have a talk with Bobby...

Stupid is as stupid does. :O)
