    Obama denounces Russian 'aggression' in Europe.....

    Well here is one thing BO brought up at the UN.....what do you think of this little speech. While Lavrov sat there catching it all. Do the Russians even think he is serious? What about those watching BO make moves to get rid of Assad? What say ye?


    US President Barack Obama denounced Russian aggression in Europe at the United Nations on Wednesday, but proferred a hand to Moscow by offering to lift sanctions if Russia changes course. "We will impose a cost on Russia for aggression," he said. But the US president said a recent ceasefire agreement in Ukraine offers an opening towards diplomacy and peace.

    "If Russia takes that path -- a path that for stretches of the post-Cold War period resulted in prosperity for the Russian people -- then we will lift our sanctions and welcome Russia's role in addressing common challenges." He said Russia and the United States had cooperated in the past, from reducing nuclear stockpiles to removing and destroying Syria's declared chemical weapons. "And thats the kind of cooperation we are prepared to pursue again -- if Russia changes course," Obama said.....snip~

    I would think the Russians are mostly ignoring him because he bores them, and anyone that is listening is thinking he's a hypocrite given the US is bombing Syria and Iraq.
    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.

    Yeah I was really impressed as the Russian thugs has the audacity to mock him while he spoke. If you have any ounce of respect for this country, if you are an American, that should infuriate you even if you don't agree with your president.

    I think we know who will get the last laugh as Russia's economy continues to tank.

    Thugs always get their due in the end.

    Well the last thing Putin is thinking about.....is having cooperation with BO and his Team. But with our action in Syria.....how do you think BO looks with the Brits and others refusing to Bomb ISIS in Syria.

    Doesn't infuriate me at all, Obama is a clown. That said, let's not be under any illusion.... the cold war never really ended, and Russia remains our #1 geopolitical rival.

    I'm more concerned with their meddling in Iran and Syria than I am with Ukraine. Especially Iran, which I see as the big prize.

    This president doesn't have the fortitude, the brains, and the experience to challenge Russia on Iran. Hopefully the next president does.

    The Europeans don't want to bomb ISIS because they've got a LOT more Muslims in their countries (percentage-wise) than we do...and it's a LOT easier for terrorists to get into continental Europe than it is for them to come here.

    They agree with Obama that this is something that the Muslim nations in the region need to work together to solve...which is precisely what Obama's trying to make happen. He may or may not succeed, but it's a heck of a lot better (and FAR cheaper in terms of blood and treasure) than sending in 140,000 ground troops for another endless war.

    Heya Glen. Well we would be stupid to send in the bulk of any ground troops in the first place. As this is everyones problem and not just ours. Still.....all clandestine people should be removing any of these Terrorists they come across.

    Moreover Assad should know when we stop bombing and then should roll in and mop up.

    Also I am not against Mercs going in and hunting them down.


    Still, this would not change on how we appear in giving aid to the MB backed Syrian Rebels to help them take out Assad.

    No surprise there considering the history of your posts.

    Myself I stood behind Bush when we were at war even if I didn't agree with him. And I was expecting to be deployed at any time.

    It's easy to sit behind your computer and trash your president much to the elation of our enemies, but we have men and women putting their lives on the line, so I find that a line I won't step over. Didn't with Bush anyway. I guess I'm old fashioned that way.

    If a country cowers because they are afraid of retaliation it doesn't say much for their leader. Sure is a different Britain than under Churchill. And you can't blame our president for that.
