Ok, Hawaii would face the same threats as AK because there's water seperating them from a potential threat Does someone need tell you the exact miles between Russia and alaska? I figured the bright colorful maps would have been enough. Apparently not.

It should be explained that the territorial sea means the waters 12 miles wide adjacent to the country's coast, including any islands, which are included in the country's territory. Twelve miles offshore is where the country's external border (or state border) runs.

Does someone need to tell you I know how far away Russia is from Nome? Does someone need to tell you I have been there, and seen it for myself? Does someone need to tell you how vast the wilderness is up there?

They still don't share a border, so stop embarrassing yourself.

The whole point was that Russia was a "close potential threat" if you really need someone to be mad at go beat your wife

And I don't think your "vast wilderness" would slow down a hypothetical nuke

We had this discussion at work today while watching the announcement of the VP. Girl at work said "well that won't stop me from voting for Obama." I said yes, but it might sway a lot of other people, as they are not very intelligent. She responded "no it won't. People are smarter than that". And then I decided to lump her into that stupid person category.

The State of Alaska thinks so...

Alaska - Russian Facts
  • Alaska and Russia share a border. The U.S.-Russian maritime boundary zigzags down the Bering Strait between the Asian and American land masses.
  • Alaska and Russia are less than 3 miles apart at their closest point in the Bering Strait where two islands, Russia's Big Diomede Island and Alaska's Little Diomede Island, are located. In winter it is possible to walk across the frozen Bering Strait border between these two islands. At its closest, the American mainland and the Russian mainland are 55 miles apart where Alaska's Seward Peninsula and Russia's Chukotka Peninsula reach out to each other.
But you knew that because you been there

No my point was that they don't share a border. To continue to insist they do just makes you look like you don't know what you are talking about. We can be hit with nukes most anywhere in this country, (And at far more desirable targets) and I don't think it is the governor's job to volley them back with a tennis racket. Nor is the any diplomacy involved-That is the Fed's job. Both sides of the strait are fairly desolate, and nothing goes on up there between the two countries.

I like how you think I am the one POed, though- you obviously don't know me very well.

Have I been on Little D? No. Can you walk between them? Yes. Could you walk from Nome to Russia? Yes, on some years. So what? It is not a border. It is a Maritime Boundary.

Her platform has always been run on ethics, Kwame has no experience there.

But maybe your right, we should have got the wife of Monica Lewinsky's ex-boyfriend.

Her bio is pretty impressive and definately not mainstream D.C..
Mother of five big deal so she hires babysitter. Her jobs were a part time job except for her 1.5 years as governor.

Dude are you serious. Both these issues are handled by the Federal Government. This chick didn't even make Forbes top 100 list of most powerful women.
Forbes Top 100 list

Bad choice. I can't imagine the Joint Chiefs are getting real excited about taking orders from a "hockey mom."

If anyone should feel slighted it's Condoleezza Rice. She has ten times the education and experience.
What does the size of the city or state have to do with anything? She has done her job, and done it very well. How can you say she doesn't have any experience when Palin has more responsibility in one day than Obama has in a month in Congress? He is an empty suit whereas she actually has done something.

Russia and Alaska share a border, just like Michigan is a border state to Canada.
