The Media's Ridiculous Saber Rattling at Russia

The Media is stirring up all this silly tough talk about Putin, but I think they forget that Russia hold $154.3 BILLION dollars of American Debt.
The Russians won’t have to shoot a single round at the US, all they have to do is demand that the US pay back all the money we owe them!
Is the Media stupid enough to think the Russians will loan the US more money to finance an war with the Russians?!?

China's appetite for U.S. government debt expanded its holdings of Treasurys to a record of $1.317 trillion (as of November, 2013). That doesn't take into account their vast real estate holdings nationwide, except Rochester (they think it is to violent).
So our debt to Russia is walkin' around money.

Yes, You make a great point.
My point is that the US is in no position to intervene in international issues.
Our debt extends to China, Russia, India, and a huge list of other countries.
Our Spending problem has become a national security problem.
We can't afford a long term war with any country, as we would have to borrow the money to fight.
Since we can't afford to flex our war machine, our role in world stage can only be as an observer.

Unfortunately, we can't stay out of anything. We will continue to expend funds we don't have, and continue racking up an unfathomable national debt.
We dive in to any dispute, supply weapons and intelligence (in some cases boots on the ground). Its a long American tradition. We have to break this bad habit of involving ourselves in other government's disputes -- we are quickly becoming a third world nation with no respect globally. We can no longer afford the massive expenditures or human toll.
Time to cut Israel loose, or at least diminish our unlimited aid/support. The administration has grossly mismanaged our relationship.
