    However, India remains volatile, there have been many high level terrorist attacks there. Let us not forget the Mumbai attacks.

    I guess I'd say, why the fleet of Limousines? But anywho.

    Onward partisan soldiers....
    None of that explains 32 warships... I mean maybe those ships were heading to the region anyway - that would make sense at least. But first, if it's economic growth and trade you seek, you don't send the President to an already close ally - you send the Secretary of State or some other underling. Second, in the case where there are terrorist attacks and using your words here - "high level terrorist attacks" I don't think I want the President going there unless it's absolutely certain he is safe on the ground... not at sea. Third, it's not the military's job to protect the President when he is traveling to other countries it's the Secret Service's job. And fourth - limosines and protective personnel and vehicles as well as other security measures are obviously needed even where terrorist attacks have not occurred - so that little comment is just ad hominem nonsense. Then you make a jab at partisans? Hypocrisy much?

    There should be a rational explaination as to why these ships are going there and it can't be to protect the President.
    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.

    That might not work as well given the density of gold, it's thermal conductivity, and malleability.

    I want to know how you Liberals get away with calling another poster a Liar?

    And make no mistake that is what you just did, and I thought this was a rule violation.

    As to your pretending that Obama is not a follower of Black Liberation Theology you prove the point point that Liberal refuse to see the facts even when Obama says he's tied to it in his own words and it's proven by his own actions.





    There are none so blind as those who will not see.

    You really have to stop operating from the position that Obama is the Messiah and therefore is infallible.

    As to this trip there are reportedly more than 200 executives accompanying Obama on his visit to Mumbai and Delhi.

    What is that about? Obama bashes big business then takes them on a billion dollar trip.

    Oh I know what this is about. After this trip when you call the White House, it will be like calling your credit card company and the person on the other end of the phone will have such a heavy Indian accent you will barely be able to understand them.

    This is all about Obama getting another all expense payed vacation disguised as having a legitimate purpose.

    This total waste of money is just Obama once again using the office as if he won the welfare lotto.

    This whole trip is so Obama can see the Festival of Lights and have the whole trip payed for by you and I.

    US to announce major military aid package for Pakistan

    By Kim Ghattas BBC News, Washington

    The US is set to announce a significant package of military and security aid to Pakistan on Friday, the final day of the latest US-Pakistan strategic talks.

    The multi-year aid package will be "no-strings-attached", officials say.

    But the Obama administration will make clear it expects Islamabad to do more in the fight against Islamic militants.

    Since 2005, Pakistan has received more than $1bn (636.4m) of military aid a year from the US - and received close to $2bn for the last fiscal year.

    Looks like it pays NOT to be friends with the U.S.

    But the Obama administration will make clear it expects Islamabad to do more in the fight against Islamic militants (string attached).
    that's a pretty clear string right there.

NOT to change the nature of economy in natural evolution to give us that competitive edge again, doing things no one else can do or at least something more profitable. No instead we want to cling to the past, and try to halt world growth, world progress, so they can't compete with us, OR we want to cut ourselves off from the world so whatever they do doesn't matter to us.

    Both those solutions are impossible and if attempted will only leave the US dragging behind other nations in the long run. The economy is changing, the world is changing, and as powerful an economic power the US is, it cannot stop that change it must adapt and to adapt it must suffer as it changes as well. Thats a natural economic progression, its what recessions are for, to restructure the economy, cut off the fat thats slowing us down and make more room for muscle.

    .
    Yes, that's exactly what I said

    How is NOT wanting my job shipped to India 'clining to the past'? They need MY job in order to grow & progress?
