Why Russia Resents Us
PAT BUCHANAN • MAY 2, 2016

Asked on his retirement as Army chief of staff what was the greatest strategic threat to the United States, Gen. Ray Odierno echoed Marine Corps Gen. Joseph Dunford, “I believe that Russia is.”

He mentioned threats to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Ukraine.

Yet, when Gen. Odierno entered the service, all four were part of the Soviet Union, and no Cold War president ever thought any was worth a war.

The independence of the Baltic States was one of the great peace dividends after the Cold War. But when did that become so vital a U.S. interest we would go to war with Russia to guarantee it?

  1. Man seeks restraining order against God

    An Israeli man has petitioned for a restraining order against God, claiming the almighty has been particularly unkind to him over the years and that the police are unable to do anything.

    The man, named by Israeli news site NRG as David Shoshan, represented himself at a court hearing in Haifa, a port city in the north of Israel. The report noted that God was not present to defend himself.

    The court heard God had been particularly unkind to Mr Shoshan, treating him “harshly and not nicely”, though no specific details were given about what exactly had happened to make him feel this way.

    Mr Shoshan claimed he made several attempts to contact police to report God’s alleged crimes, and that patrol cars had been sent to his house on 10 occasions.

    However, the measure was ineffective against the deity and police advised him to take out a restraining order.

    The request for a restraining order was denied by the presiding Judge Ahsan Canaan, who said the request was “delusional” and that the petitioner required help from sources outside of the court.

    God could not be contacted for comment.

  3. the fixed amount of fluid will eventually evaporate to a point where the boundary shear stress in the tube can no longer match gravity (i.e., it cavitates and produces a bubble, losing its siphon), but if the exposed fluid could somehow be placed in a high-humidity enclosure, that would at least slow the evaporative loss and prolong the collapse outcome. good one, that.
