    It isn't debatable. South Africa sucks, but it was not a better country under Apartheid. It was only better for those who weren't under the boot of a fascist military machine.

    well then do it like the Chinese, whom do not seem to get caught up in these things.

    seriously, man. really?

    we need to get the hell out of a lot of these places and never go back, regardless of which half of the duopoly controls the white house.
    When did I say you like Obama?

    When did I say we shouldn't pack up and haul ass?

    Why are you totally incapable if understanding my comments explaining why I believe Obama won't bail?

    Obama!s autheticity has been in question since he threw his hat in the ring. This is his big chance to prove he's an authentic black man.

    They get caught up in them it just isn't frequently reported. There have been hundreds of Chinese citizens killed in developing countries during times of instability.

    I agree with letting people take care of themselves. The US does not have the luxury of spending money and lives dealing with other peoples problems right now. Theres 6 billion other people and a few hundred other countries that can go get involved if they want. And any americans who want to help can go join the Peace Corps or whatever.

    OK.
    I would imagine the Chinese look at that more of a cost of doing business, rather then any kind of imperative to stabilize.

    Why would he want or need to do that? He looks black to me.

    As for embassies in every hellhole, I stand by my earlier statement : close them.

    Actually, he's only half black. Hence the reason he feels the need to prove his blackness.
