    Eh? The US is super friendly with two of the four other major powers -- Britain and France (and by extent the European Union). Russia's the isolated one here, not the US.

    That said, I think Russia will simply not be removed Crimea, whether or not it should be, so Obama ought to move on.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    France is a super power. You could have fooled me. I don't count either one. China (the new sleeping elephant), Russia and the U.S. That's my short list.

At least that's the way it SHOULD work.

    maybe he should use his pen to draw another red line?

    Then we should not have signed a treaty otherwise.

    What should stop is the pointless words about Iran to not obtaining nuclear weapons (or to any other country.) The USA is now known to be the land of liars who only make deals to scam countries into being set up for military invasion.

    We convinced Hussein in Iraq to destroy his chemical and biological weapons - and then attacked and killed Hussein after he had.

    We convinced Libya to give up its chemical and biological weapons program - and then attacked and killed the leader of that country after they had.

    We convinced the Ukraine to give up the 3rd largest nuclear arsenal in the world - and then told Russia we will actually do nothing over any part of Ukraine that Russia wants.

    Iran should consider any USA efforts to convince Iran to not obtain nuclear weapons as the USA declaring it intends to invade Iran and kill its leadership, only wanting make certain Iran has not dirty bombs or nuclear weapons before we do.

    Pressuring a country to disarm itself is the USA actually announcing there are plans to invade the country.

    I get tired of the trillions of words from politicians that have exactly no value whatsoever. ANY words about Iran and nuclear weapons are all totally worthless and essentially lies to claim something is being done with nothing is or can be done any more.

    The future is of rapid worldwide nuclear weapons proliferation with every dictator, theocratic and military junta having their own mini nuclear arsenal. Within 50 years you'll probably be able to buy older models at garage sales.

    We should not be party to ANY treaty or international agreements. We should not be part of ANY international organizations. PERIOD.

    I think that is impossible now that we live in a world of instant comunication.

    There isn't much we can do. Reasonably, at least.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
