    fyi WikiLeaks cables reveal how US manipulated climate accord

    Hidden behind the save-the-world rhetoric of the global climate change negotiations lies the mucky realpolitik: money and threats buy political support; spying and cyberwarfare are used to seek out leverage.

    The US diplomatic cables reveal how the US seeks dirt on nations opposed to its approach to tackling global warming; how financial and other aid is used by countries to gain political backing; how distrust, broken promises and creative accounting dog negotiations; and how the US mounted a secret global diplomatic offensive to overwhelm opposition to the controversial "Copenhagen accord", the unofficial document that emerged from the ruins of the Copenhagen climate change summit in 2009.

    I thought the left claimed the world hated us for this type of behavior while Bush was in office?

    Funny how the egg is dripping non stop off the faces of the left in this country. I remember how they stood before the American people claiming that Bush was guilty of strong arming, threatening, lying and financially aided allies and enemies alike of America to get the world to believe what they wanted them to believe.

    Isn't it interesting how Assange and WikiLeaks are evil incarnate -- until they uncover intelligence that you find useful?

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Nope, I drew that conclusion from some of the other posts I've seen you make that had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with subject.

    So, here's your chance!

    How do you feel about WikiLeaks and Julian Assange?

    Actually you are lying because I have never stated one way or another about either one.

    For the record I could care less whom he exposes. If they are guilty then the public needs to know. The only problem is if he was to expose top secret info. Then I would have a problem with it. But for the record, I find it extremely funny that he has exposed Hillary for the bitch she is and how she gives the country a bad name and the fact that Obama is being exposed as the inexperienced train wreck we warned the country of back in 08.

    Um, actually, no. I'm not lying. I said flat out that the posts I read that led me to this conclusion had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the subject.

    In other words, I exhibited an honesty you'll have trouble finding in discussions on subjects this heated.

    At any rate, it sounds like I was wrong, so I apologize.

    Re: WikiLeaks cables reveal how US manipulated climate accord

    Our rallying cry against the Obama administration should be the same one we used against the Bush administration:

    NOT IN OUR NAME!!

    This is something where Liberals and Conservatives need to put aside their dislike of each other, and get together on. Don't like the abuses committed by the Bush administration? Call Obama to the carpet. Don't like the abuses committed by the Obama administration? Call Bush to the carpet. You can't have it both ways. ONE standard must apply for all. With what these clowns in office are doing to this country, I would think that the actions committed by these politicians should mean more than the political rhetoric that they are shoveling at the rest of us.

    Face it. When it comes right down to brass tacks, there is only one political party in America - The Republicrats. Their mascot is a donkey's ass sticking out of an elephant's ass. The freedoms that Liberals and Conservatives alike enjoy in America are very much at risk, and the hyperpartisanship and political bickering continues at their own peril, as well as the peril that exists for the rest of us.

    The sooner ALL these idiots are removed from office, the safer America will be. I have another suggestion - Adding the names of ALL politicians to the don't fly list. They are traitors.

    Seems like are leaders were actually more interested in politics in Copenhagen than global warming. I thought it was a dire global emergency?

    Perhaps they know it's just a hoax, too.
