Right back at ya' buddy. Right back at ya'.

Ms. Palin might not know what the Bush doctrine is, but Russia sure as hell does:
Russia underlined its right to a "preventive" nuclear strike this week in what military analysts interpreted as a move to introduce more clarity into the nation's defense doctrine. The statements, made by Chief of General Staff Yuri Baluyevsky on Saturday, were followed by naval exercises in the northern Atlantic that will feature over 40 aircraft of the Air Force. Though unrelated, the developments pointed to a Russia not so much on the offensive as a one that was eager to bring its defense doctrine in line with that of the Western world and make it more up to date with contemporary military demands.
I'm sure the administration is aghast at the whole thing. "How dare they!" they must be muttering in the halls of the 'monkey palace.'

When I first heard about the Bush doctrine, even I knew it was dangerous and irresponsible. And I'm just a nobody.

Yes, because it is "preventive war" which is outlawed by the UN, of which we are a charter member.

This is different than 'preemptive war' and we're not just talking semantics.

I'm stuck at work at the moment but if time allows I'll expand on this, with links, and use the material as an update to your post.

BIG diff between preventive and preemptive. HUUUUUUUuuuge.

Glad you're willing to delve into.
