Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If you had bothered to read my comments, if you could actually find them among 13 comments devoted to a worthless discussion of how comment ratings are handled by the software on EuroTrib, you might have noticed this:

Not even the unspeakable Secretary Flory disputes the main facts about the deterioration of the Russian nuclear arsenal, especially the assertion by Lieber and Press that all nine of Russia's nuclear submarines are sometimes sitting simultaneously in port.

About the possibility of the Russians being "mad enough to believe we would ever launch a first strike on them"...

Remember the Russians are looking at a country that drops four times as many bombs on Afghanistan every day as we drop on Iraq, and we have already dropped more bombs on Iraq than we dropped on Germany in WWII, and most of those bombs we drop on Afghanistan fall on defenseless villagers who have nothing whatsoever to do with the Taliban or al Qaeda.

Just how "mad" do you think the Russians would have to be to think Bush/Cheney would do anything if they thought they could get away with it, and getting away with it is exactly what the second half of my diary and the article by Lieber and Press are all about.


(I only posted on European Tribune out of admiration for Jerome, and the rest of it is just a sad joke.)
