    MSM, you're kidding right?



    And in the Arab world? Al Jazeera is king, and Clinton says she can see why.
    “Al Jazeera has been the leader in that are literally changing people’s minds and attitudes. And like it or hate it, it is really effective,” she said.
    “In fact viewership of al Jazeera is going up in the United States because it’s real news. You may not agree with it, but you feel like you’re getting real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and, you know, arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff that we do on our news which, you know, is not particularly informative to us, let alone foreigners,” she added.

The difference between the two? We don't 'annex' anyone, and claim them as US additions.
    I need no rouse to cover my support of Russia's policing action in response of the West's support for toppling the elected government of the Ukraine, and instantly recognising an UNELECTED pro west government. Where have you been.

    Oh, I see....10,000 troops from the US in Afghanistan is imperialistic, but, 20,000 inside Crimea, and 80,000 more massed on the borders is a police action when it is 'Mother Russia' eh comrade?

    Who cares what the Arab world thinks about what? This is a general statement, Clinton made when testifying before a congressional committee, that MSM is fluff and no substance, if you want "real news" your obliged to listen to and watch Al Jazeera. Your fail.

    Even Obama stated, on the campaign trail in 08' (which was the precise moment he lost any chance of my vote) that he would "attack AQ inside Pakistan, with or without the Pakistani governments permission". He kept good on that promise, too!

    Good gawd, where do you get your information? That was a long, protracted process by the CIA to identify where bin Laden was hiding. Many years in the making.

    It is a matter for the US, as well as all other countries of the world, but it is not the responsibility of the US alone.

    I would be delighted for us to focus on the burden of our domestic problems and leave that issue to Russia and the Ukraine to resolve, with involvement of the EU, only in the event that all the fear mongering and comparisons between Putin and Hitler, and Putins alleged designs on Europe beyond Ukraine, were to materialise.
    BHO focusing on domestic problems hasn't led to a great deal of success. A diversion may be just what he needs. Comparisons between Putin and Hitler are inescapable and most everyone recognizes that.

    Hillary Rodham Clinton has sparked a political uproar this week by wading into the middle of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, likening the moves of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the actions of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler leading up to World War II.

    The former secretary of state’s provocative comparison drew swift rebukes Wednesday from U.S.-Russia policy experts — including some who served under her husband, former president Bill Clinton — while attracting rare notes of support from hawkish Republicans in Congress.

    Notice, only warmongering hawks supported her, as is typical.
    Ronald Reagan also received the 'swift rebuke' treatment when he called Russia the "Evil Empire", though of course, like Hillary, he was quite correct.

    The only 'warmongering hawk' right now is Vladimir Putin. That should be clear enough to everyone, as are the comparisons between him and Hitler.

    Will Putin continue into the Ukraine to starve millions of Ukrainian people like one of his predecessors did? Or attempt a 'final solution'? Probably not in today's world because of spy satellites.. But his excuse for entering the Ukraine certainly remains similar to Hitler's.
