PREVENTIVE WAR….Here’s the latest from Russia:

Russia is prepared to make pre-emptive strikes on “terrorist bases” anywhere in the world, the Interfax news agency cited the country’s chief of staff as saying.

“With regard to preventive strikes on terrorist bases, we will take any action to eliminate terrorist bases in any region of the world. But this does not mean we will carry out nuclear strikes,” General Yuri Baluyevsky said Wednesday.

(Italics mine.)

So….how do we feel about this? The Bush administration is both anti-terrorist and pro-preventive war, so we’re on board with this, right?
