    If you ignore the results when they occur, you're ignoring reality. I remember this being a big enough issue that Bush found it necessary to include himself in it.
    America's vital national interests are not affected by Turkish/Armenian relations. My gawd, you're grasping at straws.

Guess the Obama Cairo Speech really paid dividends in the region, LOL. Just goes to show we have an empty suit in the WH who is in over his head. If Hillary doesn't support the Obama policy thus the results being generated she should resign.
    I have this image of her playing this soundtrack in her mind every time she puts down the phone...

    This occurred within a period of twenty four hours.

    Who is in charge and what is American policy on this issue?

    I understand that Obama went to a party Saturday night instead keeping vigil in the War Room. Is that leadership?

    The whole world wonders.
    It is best if Obama keeps a low profile and lets it play out. Look at what happens when Biden and Clinton open their mouths.

    I love it when people take positions that can't be defended.

    Are you an American? Most Americans are interested in furthering the national interests of the American people, not the Muslim Brotherhood.

    I agree. But he needs to do his job. He needs to stay in the white house and manage a cisis of this magnitude instead of going to parties.

    Maybe this fellow is so sanguine because he is a commodities trader who is going to make serious money from the skyrocketing price of crude oil.

    Foreign policy has a direct impact on the standard of living of the American people. This disaster for America cannot be hidden.

    I suspect he is keeping silent so that when it all works it out whatever way it works they can say, yep...thats what we figured would happen... If you never take a position you can never really be 'wrong.'
