    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.

    You may entirely believe with the philosophies and ideology of President Obama. Many people have lofty ideals. But it is coming down to the raw question of competency to carry out any goals, programs or ideals to any workable form, and an apparent lose of what to do on foreign policy matters lacking both any experience or knowledge himself, nor does his staff.

    This is not only becoming a national and worldwide embarrassment to our county, it is increasingly causing real harms domestically and real dangers internationally. Where he previously was praised throughout the world and this nation for his lofty idealistic speeches, he is becoming seen as incompetent, indecisive and weak both at home and aboard by both the populous and foreign leaders.

    The president is the leader of what still hangs on as the wealthiest country on earth and is commander of the unquestionable most powerful military on earth. Yet he is being openly ridiculed by world leaders.
    Well, to his credit he hasn't let his ego make rash decisions. He's fed his ego on the results of poor decisions, but I don't see him changing DEFCON because of a bruised ego.

    Any nation with the capacity to annihilate the United States in nuclear hellfire, stage foreign interventions anywhere in the world, keep a permanent UN Security Council seat and direct the world's largest economy (some say even run it), is, to me, a great power.

    My list reads: the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Russia and China.

    Sorry. Don't see France. We'll just have to disagree.

    In terms of "The World Stage," I suppose I do. But really? They're not in my mind. Here's something:

    The terminology of a superpower is not clearly defined and as a consequence they may differ between sources. However, a fundamental characteristic that is consistent with all definitions of a superpower is a nation or state that has mastered the seven dimensions of state power; geography, population, economy, resources, military, diplomacy and national identity.
    I see the UK as lacking in geography, population, economy, resources and military. *shrug*

    DEFCON has nothing to do with it.

    I gather your view also is the only thing police can do is either gun down a suspect or do nothing too.
