re: Interesting Conversation With A Friend In England


Well, I'd say. How were we harmed by posturing Russia into pressuring one of its allies to give up its weapons?

rex

Damn rex really? You just type sh!t and hope it helps BHO?

1. If BHO really thought bombing Syria was the right thing it should already have been done.
2. What has happened is a bunch of talk. Thats it.
3. Syria and Russia have come out looking stronger not weaker now. If you don't see that I can't help you. Take some international politic courses.
4. If the greatest power on earth starts making empty threats and backing down it begins to work less and less in the future which makes armed conflicts more likely in the future. Again if you can't or won't see that there is no help for you. Perhaps you realized that the bully picking on you was just full of hot air and then you realized he had no power over you or maybe he still did

He is a sharp guy. However, I don't think most Americans grasp that people in other developed nations pay close attention to what happens in America...much more so that most Americans pay attention to what happens in Europe, the ME or Asia and Australia.

What is interesting and I don't think it has been mentioned by anyone at all is that this threat/desire for military action by the US is only the second time that Kerry has supported such action in forty years. The first was when Clinton was facing impeachment and all of the dogs were being wagged to save his arse and now.

Neville Chamberlain would be proud.
Haven't you learned by now that there are some on this site who would argue that Neville Chamberlain did the right thing in Munich? How could Chamberlain possibly have known that Hitler would not honor the agreement they reached?

Based on Rex's assumption that the English do not know anything about American politics, particularly elections, do you think Rex would concede that Americans knew nothing about English politics when Chamberlain was screwing the pooch, and therefore should have remained silent on the matter?

Actually, Kerry did vote for W's Iraq war in 2002, though I suspect that had more to do with Presidential aspirations than conviction.

At least Americans in the 30's were legitimately ignorant of the goings on in Europe in overwhelming numbers and had greater concerns with the Depression to worry about. Today liberals and their followers are not ignorant but outright fools as Rex et al. Their masses of followers are kept comfy and on the farm with all of the welfare payments arriving on time each month.

Exactly.

John Kerry is a disgraceful POS.

The English certainly know what it feels like to have once been the mightiest super-power in the world. And then, not be...

This is an issue for the UN, period.
95% of this board seem to wish the UN didn't exist. I would bet that the same percentage of people who think Obama did poorly in this situation also feel that way. I wonder who they felt this was an issue for. Or msybe they are just straight up George W circa 2000 isolationists.

But I agree that teh UN should be allowed to lead on these issues. Would be nice if the US didn't have crackpots who hate the UN and politicians who catered to the simple minded.

most of the globe recognizes Obama got clowned about Syria.

By a despotic dictator and a KGB strete thug.

Think about that. Your "smartest evah" got clowned on international diplomacy when two evil men who kill hundreds of thousands of people made him look like a deranged war monger (peace prize just an added joke at this point), while they look like saviors of international life.

Only idiotic american progressive sheep think Obama somehow "won" here.

The sad reality is that O's complete focus in on 2017. All he cares about is how much money he is going to be making on speeches in Abu Dhabi.

He needed to be re elected in 2012 for the big payday. Two term Prez makes more after office than a 1 termer. The real payday for these guys is after office.

Obama could end up on Mount Rushmore. The Obama-bots will never stop the push to elevate him to Deity-status.

Schools. Newspapers. Journalists. Universities. Professors of all sorts. Teachers. Movie stars. Talking heads on TV. FedGov officials. All of them will be joining in the march, and never stop the push to elevate Oboe to Deity-status worthy of Mount Rushmore.

A moderately informed foreigner could easily be as informed as a majority of potential US voters. And to think Romney could have handled things better than Obama isn't a reach, Obama is incompetent, Romney obviously has some management skills. But Romney was kissing Israeli arse big time so he would have supported the "pipeline". But I doubt he would have shite on international law and public Opinion as easily as Obama. Romney would not have gotten a free pass from any of the media, wouldn't have been a lame duck , and doesn't have the awesome factor Obama possesses. Romney would not have been as stupid and reckless even if his heart had been in the wrong place.



Anyway, Russia is not our biggest threat. Getting into a new unnecessary war in the ME is a greater threat to US security than any threat Russia poses.

Rex, believe it or not, non-US citizens often follow US politics closely.


I'm sure Rex took seriously all the criticism emanating from Europe about Bush.

The BBC makes MSNBC look like Fox News.

Having just completed a trip to Europe I was amazed at how ignorant the Euros are about the US.
Their frame of reference is NY, FL, and CA.
And they say we're uninformed.

But the point is, is that the Community Organizer got played, much to our detriment. And now they've brought in 90 year old Henry Kissinger to pull their chestnuts out of the fire.
