Hawk Gold - Thanks for your commentary and especially the last one. I am following the war closely and do not see anything about your take that concerns me. My view of this is that we are mostly expending material that we would likely never use. The Russians (whom I have visited) have been responsible for a lot of wasted money on our part and the world would be better off if they are put down for awhile. This may end up saving us money in the long run.
