At the risk of sounding... a Republican, the Russians may have a point on one issue. According to Reuters:

Russia's defense ministry said on Tuesday it regarded U.S. naval patrols in the Black Sea as a potential threat to its safety because it was unclear what kind of missiles the ships were carrying, the RIA news agency reported.

See that map of the Black Sea, above? See how close it is to Russia?

Now just imagine if there was a Russian ship in the Gulf of Mexico. It might be enough to make even a Republican object, wouldn't it?

Ships of all nations are allowed in international waters. That's why they are called "international". Wasn't there just a Russian ship 30 miles off the coast of Delaware?
