I believe when it comes to the interest of the United States and the affairs of Russia it should be left up to our president to make the call. Not someone like Indiana Gov. Mike Pence looking to encourage a war.

We Americans encourage peace. There is enough killing going on all around us every day right here in the United States just because people cannot get along. Pence was hired to do his job. Well do it, and leave President Barack Obama to do his.

If Obama feels a missile program isn't the answer right now, great. With Russia bullying its neighbors, I would rather see it there other than Russia threatening us here in the United States. Look for a solution of having peace, rather than a war.
