Theres a threatening bear on the loose and its name is Russia.
ts been hibernating for some time but never really sleeping. This bear which was deemed lean both economically, militarily, and politically has risen to power on the back of U.S. economic aid. Billions of U.S. dollars was given to Russia to keep them from total collapse. We also thought because of this aid they would turn to a freer move capitalistic form of government.
Well guess what? We were duped once again; not surprisingly by Russias leadership which has been led by former KGB head President Putin. The KGB is their political secret police agency at the USSR. The bears claws are reaching out for all known potential prospectives for energy and also attempting to gain control over its former empire by attacking its neighbors; specifically the republic of Georgia; a pro-west U.S. ally; helping us fighting terrorism in Iraq.
Just a couple parting thoughts, didnt we even get a thank you? Not a chance. Instead the bears appetite is alive and well and those extended claws are leaving the U.S. with scars and bruises. In other words, Im afraid were in for a mauling. Not a pleasant thought, is it?
