    This was a US drone in Ukraine, captured by Russians. Thats not the same as a drone being captured over Russia.

    So what? It shows a disregard for the US, and shows Russia has the capability to down our drone.

    Except he's not running inside, and he just broke your windshield with a rock.

    Not shooting down a drone. Shooting down a military jet. It's the existence of a pilot that makes it worse.

    Surely, we must have known that Russia had the capability of downing a drone. If Iran can do it, almost anyone can. Anyway, that's why we use drones, so there is no pilot to be rescued.

    And yet the violation of the territorial sovereignty of Ukraine by Russia, and their belligerence to US military aircraft aren't exactly great either.

    Iran was using russian tech, and Russia likely has been tweaking its techniques-and this proves they work.

    This is about much more than the loss of a drone. Its not clear you understand that.

    You're right, it is more than the loss of the drone. It's also an opportunity to compare Obama with Neville Chamberlain.

    Well, they both seem to want to appease aggression. How many more times do you need before you figure out where that gets us?

    Obama, by nearly every measure is a weak leader-and the world knows it-they can read him like an open book.

    Are you serious? Bush had nothing to do with catching bin laden. In fact he ruled out going into pakistan without pakistani permission. He, along with other repubs, even criticized obama in 08 for saying he would. He even said he didnt care about catching obl. Also the would thought he was a weak leader and thats why 9-11 even happened under his watch. Al qaeda has been decimated under obama. He has killed 30 of there top leaders. The disastrous Bush policy not only destroyed our economy, but our standing in the world.

    Yeah, Bush going into Asia, and employing our intelligence resources there had nothing to do with it.

    And sorry, but AQ is on the rise yet again, and in fact flies its flag over several cities it did not under Bush.

    Your failed attempt at revisionism is pathetic.
