    Who cares?
    Obama does display weakness.

    Syria. Russia. China. He's a chump and the world knows he's not going to do a damn thing.

    Oh God I hope they don't let him speak. He will try to make the funeral about himself.

    I would imagine we 're pretty sick of perpetual war by now, but hey - always room for another.

    This has been going on long past any useful/rational world reason, as you say Commumisn is already in the "dusty page" of history.

    Yet we cling to this, for some odd reason, even as it's shown it's just bad policy

    You expect him to go full-on interventionist or what?

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Very true. I've quite a list of links to articles in foreign press that say just as much. And an unreliable ally as well. That's like a double whammy negative against him on the world stage.

    I expect him to be a strong leader, acting in the US's best interest-why is that too much to ask?

    Instead, the worlds B-team lives la vida loca, knowing Obama isn't going to do a damn thing.
