When you’ve stated your opinion or belief about something important, do you defend your belief to the hilt? Or do you immediately begin questioning your own conclusions?

Brink of World War UPDATES

Am I the only person who sees that we are on the brink of world war thanks to those Russian sonsofbitches? Russian forces swept across Georgia on Monday, capturing the town of Gori and moving to within 35 miles of the capital city Tbilisi, FOX News confirmed.
