    The GOP continues to goad the President into war around the planet before the election.
    Nothing is sacred with them any more.

    They know America is war-weary and are fully aware of the polls against war on the ground .

    Be skeptical of anyone who wears a political label - party or ideology - with pride. Most of our problems are because people love to "debate" (it isn't debate, but they pretend it is), but are not interested in developing solutions. Solutions require empathy, thought, and compromise, and most folks aren't interested.

    That anti-American propaganda does not become one iota less false, no matter how many times leftists who disdain the United States parrot it.

    Throat cutters in headscarves were not sitting around doing nothing and figured it would be fun to fly some some planes into American buildings.
    Rubbish. You are showing your profound ignorance of the 9/11 attacks and the history of events that led to them. If you would like to debate that history with me, come ahead.

    I know you probably think its because Saandan Francisco is homosexual capital of the country and that we don't treat women like cattle
    I don't give a tinker's damn about San Francisco, or any homosexuals who live there, or how they treat women.

    Putin point-blank threatens the West with his Nuclear weapons and the
    GOP fawns all over him and wants to have him be our leader for 48 hours.

    Putin invades Crimea and Eastern Ukraine in support of Russian speakers.
    Who did that during WW2 ?

    Putin uses Stalinist tactics against his own people when they dissent and he is strong according to the GOP.

    We are still at war in Afghanistan and against Terrorism from last decade as administrations have always overlapped in a "free" Nation.

    It's high team we readopt the Sedition Act we were forced to use during WW1 .

    The only minions I see on Sunday talk shows are those like Intelligence Chair Rogers of marbles and chess fame.

    Too bad if any of you are upset when I call this giving aid and comfort to Putin.

    Do listen to Senators Feinstein and Menendez if you think they're parroting the President.

    They are warhawks like McCain et al and are mentally butthurt because
    Obama no longer trusts them with good reason with any intel BEFORE he bombs and drones .

But only in so far as you can continue to instill "fear" into the hearts and minds of those who may oppose you. This is essentially what those who criticize Pres. Obama's foreign policy are trying to convince people about - that because he's not showing a strong military presence around the world (specifically in key hot spots, i.e., Russia/Ukraine, China/Taiwan and of course all across the ME). While I would agree with the politics of Pres. Obama's "war on terror" as ttwtt78640 describes it, I'd have to say it's a reasonable path to follow given that:

    a) our position on national sovereignty, self governance would be in stark conflict with "go over there, impose your will and bomb the hell outta them Jihadist rag-heads";

    b) Neither Congress nor the People have the stomach for yet another unprovoked war.

    c) regardless of your individual views concerning Pres. Obama's use of military might abroad, any action he takes military can only be limited in scope due to the mature of each conflict as most remain either 1-on-1 skirmishes (i.e., Israel/Palestine; Russia/Ukraine), internal problems (i.e., civil war - Syria; civil unrest - insurgency) or regional (i.e., ISIS/ISIL spewing over the Syrian/Iraqi border).

    To say that the world is coming apart because America won't get in the middle of any of it and assert their military might is a very foolish position to take. You're essentially asking the U.S. to jump into every "bar fight" the crops up. (Have you ever jumped head-first into a bar fight? Those things get out of hand in a BIG hurry!)
    You forget that we are stilll spending billions annually in the ME while often funding both sides of those "regional conflicts". To say that the US is otherwise not involved in the ME "bar fights" simply because we do not include a miilitary "option" in our ME policy is also dishonest.

    The question might be, not is he weak on foreign policy? but, is he perceived by America's enemies as being weak? Big difference I think.
