    I am a realist, not a neocon fantasist. I have also studied history. I find reality more secure than fantasies of world domination. The US has been trailin Russian subs for decades. If the Russians are catching up in sonar tech, it is not entirely surprising. They have engineers and scientists, too. Nobody has or has a right to a monopoly. That is realism too. And Russia started to negotiate for a Syrian port when Cheney was in power. Those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it. Try some reality for a change. It can change your whole perspective.
