    Sure I have. You told me you supported the breakup of Yugoslavia.

    Pointing out Western nations, and particularly US, atrocious foreign policies of the past, is the best way for any hope of not repeating them. Sweeping them under the rug, and pretending they don't exist, while pointing at others you accuse of the same, is immature. Stop lurking behind the guilt, accept responsibility, and then lobby for your new model, in that order.

    If China invades Taiwan tomorrow then all of a sudden the media will be reporting that China is our biggest threat and the sheep will believe it, and if the week after there's a Measles outbreak in Peoria and the media shifts fire people will think that infectious disease is our biggest threat.

    If our government does ANYTHING based on what "people" think we're doomed.

    There's a reason the Founding Fathers didn't give the "huddled masses yearning to breath free" the right to vote.

    Our government is beholden to a nation of people whose homes are underwater, who struggle to find minimum wage jobs, and who can't calculate compound interest rates, if they even know what those are.

    Americans are the biggest threat to America.

    Everything else is slight of hand.
    Um, yes. You have the American model down pat.

    Supporting the liberation of my people away from the Yugoslavian oppressive regime is suppose to mean that I am hateful of Russia?

    No, blaming everything about the break up of Yugoslavia on Russia, and ignoring the role that the US/NATO and the IMF played is.

    Not surprising at all. Americans are indeed keeping abreast of Russian military expansionism in Europe and Putin's dishonesty and manipulations.

    Remember the 2012 debates, this topic came up and Obama made a whiny sniveling snide remark to Romney, saying 'that the 1980's called and wanted their foreign policy back'? Well again, Romney has been proven to be 100% correct and Obama has been proven to be freakin' uninformed incompetent idiot.....AGAIN.

    I am really surprised Obama/Hillary's 'Reset Button' foreign policy has been a disaster. Who saw that coming?

    If you recall, the question in the debate was 'geopolitical threat', I don't think anyone fears Russia taking a page from Obama's buddies ISIS play-book and cutting off heads, burning alive, raping, enslaving, torturing men, women and children here in the US.
