"“If we don’t deepen our ports all along the Gulf — places like Charleston, South Carolina; or Savannah, Georgia; or Jacksonville, Florida…” -Obama
Not only was there no reason for Putin to blink it was Obama who was scrambling in circles looking for a way out. Putin is now the hero in the Middle East, and elsewhere, for saving lives and we know that these chemical weapons, which were apparently supplied by Russia, will now never be found.
But you did give me my first laugh of the day so that's appreciated.
Of course, attempting to spin that a diplomatic solution was the hope all along, someone better tell Obama, Rice, Powers, and Kerry, who as late as this past Sunday, all stated that there will be no diplomatic solution because Assad cannot be trusted.
I would point out the 'they hate America' crap is worn out. The feeling toward the military isn't hate, just confusion on why we have a military larger than the next 14 nations COMBINED, most an ally, but couldn't keep up the operational tempo of in a rather weak nation like Iraq for the TRILLION or so dollars spent each year.
Any thought of scrutinizing the DOD spending practices gets called 'hating the military'
Yes, i pointed to that confusion in your previous post.I would point out the 'they hate America' crap is worn out. The feeling toward the military isn't hate, just confusion on why we have a military larger than the next 14 nations COMBINED, most an ally, but couldn't keep up the operational tempo of in a rather weak nation like Iraq for the TRILLION or so dollars spent each year.
DOD spending practices were not being discussed.Any thought of scrutinizing the DOD spending practices gets called 'hating the military'
However here's just a couple of quotes from a celebrated American leftist.
American soldiers [are] going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women, breaking sort of the customs of the historical customs, religious customs." --John Kerry in 2005"[American troops in Vietnam] personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, [blew] up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to...the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country. ... There are all kinds of atrocities and I would have to say that, yes, yes, I committed the same kind of atrocities as thousands of other soldiers have committed...." --John Kerry in his 1971 testimony before Congress
Of course. But now Obama has a political out.Russia isn't saving lives, the slaughter continues.
Then why did you say it?It would be foolish to think a artillery shell/ aircraft ordinance will have "made by the happy workers of Novorisk Factory #7" on them...
Okay blame Clinton for Kosavo, but the righties blaming Clinton for Iraq is stupid. Kosavo didnt cost a trillion dollars either. I think it would go a really long way if the Cons accepted the fact that Bush/Cheney were some of the worst "leaders" the world has ever seen. However, we all know that will never happen.
