Chicken Little Time!

“The sky is falling!  The sky is falling!”

The Russians got the best of us.  Conned us.  Gulled us.  Not only the Russians, but especially that big, bad, bare-chested bully Putin.  He took advantage of our weak, vacillating, naïve President.

I have to think something is going right when the Wall Street Journal is apoplectic, Fox News is sputtering with rage, and the right-wing fulminators are fulminating 24/7.

Not only did the Russians take the lead in opening up the possibility that we might not have to bomb Syria to show that we mean business, Bad Vlad made fun of us in an Op-Ed piece in the New York Times.  He even questioned our exceptionalism mantra: God ordained that Americans are exceptional and the rest of you around the world better believe it – or else.  Shame on you, Putin.  Bad Vlad!

We have a new Axis of Evil – the triumvirate of Putin, Assad and Iran.  Watch out for those guys.  They’ll fool you and take advantage of your weakness.

Enough!  The sky isn’t falling.  Nobody won or lost yet, except the Syrian people who at least for now won’t be collateral damage.  The Tomahawk missiles are still sailing around the Mediterranean.  Who cares if the Russians get more credit than we do?

Take a break.  Take a deep breath – and do something really important – like telling those special people in your lives that you love them.
