I'm pretty sure youthful vigor does not significantly improve one's resistance to nuclear weapons.

And one of my worst nightmares is that smallpox will also be used, leaving those of us old enough to be vaccinated untouched while younger generations take massive losses.

Better would be actually understanding the Russian view of geopolitics and shaping our own strategy to match.  For example, placing U.S. ABM radar in Poland would be an excellent way to guarantee Poland's freedom, since the Russians would not want to invade a country with a physical U.S. presence.  A similar case was Russia's invasion of Georgia, which stopped in its tracks the moment U.S. transport  planes landed, even though they were delivering Georgian troops back from Iraq.  The latter case may not have been intentional, but the kind of thing that could be done intentionally.

The Obama/Clinton emphasis on Air Force based intervention is the  worst possible way to deal with Russia.

I'm not saying Trump will be perfect, but he's less likely to get us all killed.

Trump is a Russian tool who will let Putin take over Eastern Europe.

The U.S. is not the primary guaranter for Eastern Europe even now: the EU is. Even in Ukraine, the U.S. has done much less to oppose Russia than has Germany.

I guess Odin and Einzige think Ukraine is worth fighting for ....   with their own lives.   We're too old to fight, man. Cool

Meh.   US exceptional ism is for the birds.

Ukraine is not worth fighting for. But that doesn't mean we can't help the Ukrainians fight for it.
