Countries like Russia, China, Iran and North Korea are concerns of many. Since their existence is beyond our control anyway consider this positive.
Were it not for the United States preoccupation with these and other countries think, just think how it would be for us, the American public if our government didn't have these countries to continually be worried about.
Heaven help us if out governments total efforts were only directed at we American citizens.
Sound like an 82 year old cynic? Damn straight.
