Russian involvement in Syria gives U.S. a breather

The current Russian involvement in Syria should be looked at in a positive way instead of blaming Democrats or Republicans. If you really want to blame Democrats, then blame them for handing out, and the Republicans for having the boxing gloves on, every minute.

The Russian involvement in the current crisis will help us in the long run. We will be stronger economically by not spending trillions of dollars in this escalation, and using the money in modernizing our infrastructure, spending on research, improving our educational system and the overall condition of American people.

The stronger we are financially at home, the stronger we will be on world stage.

By no means I am suggesting we do not have to be the world leader, but it's time to take a break, not like the break that hare took and let the turtle win the race.
