WWIII? Thank Bush & Obama

TheDailyMail has an article on the activities in the Ukraine lighting off WWIII. I pray that this doesn't happen, while I also pray that Russian expansion ceases.

This situation is what we get for involving ourselves in too many theaters with a bumbling execution and vision for the role of the US. I'm not a war hawk by any stretch - war sucks. The point I'm making is that we're too stretched because our leadership of the last two administrations has committed our blood and treasure to half-baked expeditions, and the current administration has proven itself rudderless and inexperienced with the gentle art of making enemies. It's easy to see why Putin would execute his territorial grabs now, perhaps it was even predictable. I can just hear the bar conversations of the analysts, frustrated at the leadership and feeling like they're pissing into the wind when they raise the difficult points.

About the only good thing one can say about the last decade-plus of war is that our troops are well seasoned, but their exhaustion and that of society detracts from the experience.
