President-elect Trump praises Putin for "his very strong control over his country."

President Putin applauds Trump's election.

America, the world's #1 military spender, spends 60% of its discretionary income on war related budgetary items.

Discretionary Spending 2015

Russia, the world's #4 military spender, spends about 1/10th of what the U.S. spends on war-related budgetary items.

The U.S. military has 2.3 million active and reserve personnel. Russia has 2.7 million.

Russia has sneakily interfered in our recent national election.

Russia has openly helped Syria's Assad bomb the lives and homes of many Syrians.

For these and other reasons the shifty and sneaky Gods of Cold Wars are sparking thunder storms.

What should we do?

We should gear-up for the fight for heart and minds and stability by increasing our National Service personnel by one million a year for at least a generation.

But these one million should serve through winning, already existing, wound healing, heart winning platoons, such as: Peace Corps, AmeriCorps, Habitat, Doctors Without Borders, Head Start, Mercy Corps, Oxfam, America's Friends Service Committee, TechnoServe, Heifer, Red Cross, International Rescue Committee, State Conservation Corps, In-Need Schools, Hospitals Therapy Wards, Homes For The Elderly, etc.

We should challenge Russia to join us in force on these battlefields, kind of like how we served as allies in World War II, but in a brotherly, humane manner, with a different Lenin's words leading the charge.

US and Russia should begin more forcefully invading the world and get other nations to invade too.

One way to do that lies in reviving Congresswoman Boxer's House Resolution 1807 of 1989 and build that proposed joint Peace Corps program that has Russians serving alongside Americans, as teammates and roommates, doing peaceful service in our home nations and throughout the world.

Would you...would the world cheer the billeting of sandaled troopers, without AK-47s or drones, billeted in villages and cities around the world, walking a mile in their invaded hosts' shoes?
