Palin and the Russians ......world war 3 and nuclear holocaust "perhaps so" How do you feel about that ?

The 44-year-old Alaska Governor said she favors admitting Georgia and Ukraine to NATO.

When asked whether a McCain administration would go to war with Russia if it invaded Georgia, and the country was part of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), Palin responded, "Perhaps so."

"I mean, that is the agreement when you are a NATO ally, is if another country is attacked, you're going to be expected to be called upon and help," she expounded.

SARAH Palin warned yesterday she would be prepared to go to war with Russia to protect Georgia in her first interview since John McCain chose her as his vice-presidential nominee.

Calling Russia's invasion of its neighbour unprovoked, the Republican said she supported Georgia's application to join Nato even if it meant the United States could face a future confrontation with Moscow.

Update:

From the blog of Paul Craig Roberts former Republican under Secretary of the Treasury to Regan

War With Russia Is On The Agenda

Are You Ready For Nuclear War?

Update 2:

From the link above (Aug 18th) here is a direct quote from Paul Craig Roberts - the last line in his entry for that date

--------------------------

If you desire to be poor, oppressed, and eventually vaporized in a nuclear war, vote Republican.

---------------------------------

Wow - is he right ?

Will a Republican government take the world into a war that wll end civilzation as we know it ?

Has Palin been misquoted by all major news agencys ?

Is Roberts wrong - ?

    I feel Palin shouldn't be allowed anywhere near the White House, that it's amazing Americans take the threat of Nuclear war so light and I believe it shows despite the economic crisis and so on Westerners and especially Americans are spoiled to an extend it clouds their reason. Peace and prosperity are taken for granted and it will be a very rude awakening should this catastrophe hit.

    I suspect the US & NATO have adopted a "surrender now" policy to Putin's demands & he knows it. Most Americans would surrender to any demand made by Putin... they have no freedom now & very few deserve it in the future. I wonder when Russia will demand France, Germany & the US state of Alaska be returned to them? Face it, if a Russian citizen lives there, then that country belongs to the KGB.

    If Russia invades a Nato ally we have to go to war, it doesn't mean we have to go to nuclear war but I'd rather politicans running for office threaten the enemy with nuclear war then not

    And now the rest of the story....

    Obama and Biden both favor NATO for Ukraine and Georgia. If that happened and Russia attacked Ukraine by treaty we would respond.

    Palin is correct, her views match that of the Democrat contenders, this is not the issue you want it to be.

    Well when someone asks a pointed question your going to get on askew answer.

    So no one thinks anyone Russia dislikes should be allowed in NATO?

    She never said she "wanted" or "desired" to go to war with Russia she was talking in generalities.

    If China chose to takeover England would that mean we would fight against China, perhaps so.

    I feel that Palin is an off-the-hook extremist who needs to be a heartbeat away like a fish needs a bicycle.

    How could McCain have done this to America? Is the Presidency really worth destroying the country?

    Luckily Congress has to declare war. Most people aren't stupid enough to go to war with Russia. The Russians aren't that stupid either. Everyone knows the nuclear consequences. Everyone except Sarah Palin. Remember, she doesn't know what a Vice President does.

    she is not going to sit on her hands like the dems would.

    she will defend this country UNLIKE the dems.

    she is prepared to make the tough decisions UNLIKE the dems.

    she has convictions and love for this great country UNLIKE the dems.

    Biden has been in congress 35 years and did the same old sh!t that he is doing now,,

    there is a phrase that goes,,,"if you keep on doing what you've always done,,you're going to keep on getting what you've always got"

    Nobama is in the elite crowd along with Biden and they will have "politics as usual"

    not defending this country is their plan

    country first
