The strong friendship between America and England is actually an exception to the rule in that there's few if any instances where we would turn our backs on them - but England itself certainly has feet of clay.

    Obama's made some diplomatic mistakes - but his foreign policy successes are by any OBJECTIVE (i.e. non-Obama-hater's) measure are certainly greater than his foreign policy failures. And if he turned his back on Saudi Arabia, sit back and think on how that would affect our diplomatic dynamics in the region - there's no benefit (whether diplomatic or economic) at all for America by rejecting the Saudis...never mind the things that they do that are terribly wrong in our eyes.

    2. Yeah, we screwed up badly when we elected Dubya, didn't we?

    3. Most of America DOES want health insurance or single-payer health care for all Americans. It's just one certain sizable (and very well-funded) segment that wants to fight it.

    4. Every government screws up sometime...and (assuming you're completely on the up-and-up) I strongly feel that you should have the right to sue. That said, would you care to point out a nation where - given the same set of circumstances - you would be allowed to sue? There's very few such nations.

    In other words, we ain't perfect, not by a long shot. But (except for the insane war on drugs) we're not that bad, either.
    1. So WHY exactly in your opinion America still deals with Saudi Arabia?
    2. Yes, like Bush, like Obama, same song, different singer.
    4. That nation exists in my mind. it is a ONE WORLD NATION. details are on my web site

    If I was in charge of US, I would cut all funding not only to Palestine, but to Israel, Pakistan, all those nations. I would stop buying friends, I would instead make sure that each nation has real elections as are described on my web site

    You are not in charge of U.S.

    And you never will be.

    Don't take my word for this, just wait and see.

    Anyone who isn't happy in the USA should hit the road. Why stay where you're not happy?

    The entrance to the exit is wide open.

    Don't let the door hit you where the good Lord split you while you're on the way out.
    That brings the question what are all liberals and conservatives still doing in America today? or it's ok to bash one side, but both sides no? As I understand it, most people on these forums complain non stop about these or those politicians, I merely point out that they are all right, that America in fact no longer even exists, and your advice that I hit the road, is an ancient dogs advice - they all want the other dogs to hit the road so that they stay dominant - nothing new and nothing creative my genius friend.

    "America" is obviously too great a concept for you to grasp.

    I do not believe America as a nation even exists as I state on my web site, but why don't you geniuses help your homeless veterans first, it was a disgrace when I was living in Philadelphia, all your excuses "they are lazy, they are drug addicts" are not only offensive to your own people, but they don't make you look good in the world either.

    BHO has done something no one would have thought possible: brought Israel and Saudi Arabia together. Neither trusts the US. Btw: Happy New Year.

    If America doesn't exist why do you waste so much time talking about it?

    Get a grip.

    I thought it looked photo shopped. I did think it was funny how the pic made it look like Bush had a Hitler 'stache. I'm sure that was entirely unintentional.
