    Malaysia is a constitutional monarchy with an elected monarch as head of state. The Yang di-Pertuan Agong is one of the few elected monarchs in the world.

    depends on the situation. watching a bully do so on innocents while you wring your hands and talk about how someone should do something....

    ...yeah, that's a lack of testicular fortitude.

    for another example, if i were to use my fists to beat your wife into a bloody pulp in front of you, and instead of trying to protect her you screamed about how I was being a Big Meanie... you would'nt exactly be acting much of a man, now would you?

    Yeah, takes real balls to start a war 8,000 miles away that none of your family are ever likely to be hurt by. Unsurprisingly it has left her as the most hated ex-PM of all time, and that's in a race that includes Tony Blair, Neville Chamberlin, and Lloyd George.

    Two things:

    - People have been talking about the no-fly zone for many weeks now. Palin is not ahead of the curve on this. Not to mention that I have a sinking feeling that, if a conservative were in power, liberals would be screaming for a "no-fly zone" and conservatives would be defending the isolationist option.

    - We really, really don't need yet another war in the middle east.

    President Obama's inaction is the right thing to do here (although I'd prefer a more manly Washington-esque admonition to stop trying to get involved in other countries' business every time **** goes down overseas). We're barely able to keep our own government running, we don't need to be shooting down other countries' planes and starting a war with another bat**** dictator.

    This proves that despite her blood libel foot in mouth disease and her regrettable target crosshairs on Gabriel Giffords, she needs to be the 2012 GOP nominee. Maybe this will bring her back from the walking dead?
