Foreign policy, or the lack thereof

At least four are dead, including our ambassador.

Now, we send Marines. Too much too little, too late.

On September 11th and 12th, savage people stormed our embassy's in Cairo and Libya.

Those who are angry and have done the killing say they were outraged by a film done by an Israeli-American who was critical of Mohammed.

We're told it's all about the film. I'm still suspect of the date we were attacked, again.

These same people this administration encouraged to riot and overthrow the government are now attacking us.

The money we spend. The money we still spend. For what?

We are a decent people. We have free speech in this country.

I do not want to give one more dime to people who do not stand for our values. Don't give me this bull about the nuances of the world.

I'm sick of funding despots.

They attack us and the White House is slow to respond. They attacked us.

This can we be seen as an act of war. We've grown so soft.

You have our real ally, Bibi Netanyahu, pleading for our help and the president doesn't have time to see him.

Too busy campaigning.

His first job is still protecting the people of the United States of America.

The ecomony here is bad. Our foreign policy nebulous at best.

And some think this president needs another four years?

That's my point of view, what's yours?

If America never existed and neither did Israel, the nut jobs would still be ranting about what ever country did not bow down and obey their commands. Appeasement never works.

Mitt Romney says The "48, 49 percent" that supports President Barack Obama are "people who pay no income tax." But the polls and income tax data don't back this up. Obama gets substantial support from people earning more than $50,000 -- and 90 percent of them, or more, do pay taxes. And Romney gets lots of support from seniors, many of whom have no income tax liability. We rate the claim False.

According to mitt you are a bumb if you are on Social Security and pay no Income Tax on your SS and he said he does not care about you.

OBAMA / BIDEN 2012 FOR ALL AMERICANS NOT JUST THOSE IN THE TOP 5% INCOME BRACKET.

Robert Gates said it right "IT IS TIME FOR ADULTS TO START MAKING DECISIONS".
obama and his union failures must go.

Is this the Robert Gates that has been on the Government Dole for more than 30 years and is now living on a government pension. I thought you hated people like him as you have expressed those feelings in previous post. Are you a hypocrite or what? I bet you are one of those that Mittens said he does not care about in the big video that is out like everyone on Social Security, Medicare & Medicade or unemployment or on food stamps cuz your boss does not pay you enough.

Mitt Romney claims the Obama administration issued an “apology for American values” after U.S. embassies were attacked. Not true.
http://factcheck.org/2012/09/romney-gets-it-backward/

The Funny thing is, according to the FACTS more lies are and have been told by Romney, Ryan and the RNC than by Obama, Biden and the DNC. Both sides have lied but the GOP tell the most lies.

GOPUSA.COM???????? You could not find a non-partisan source for your proof?? Every link that I posted is from a nonpartisan source. Guess you are drunk on the Kool Aid again Woosterbullet.

This attack was a "planned attack' meant to show that 9/11 & its intent is still alive & well. Have any of you ever read Bernard Lewis or studied the Mideast situation for mor than 5 minutes? Mocking FOX or calling the director naive does not make YOU smarter nor increase your understanding it just makes you look like the"UGLY AMERICAN." Read about 5 of B.Lewis' books....then talk. You will then not show your ignorance as you do now. This is a serious situation to be taken very seriously.

Yup, Neal Barton, B.Lewis, rush Limpbomb, and those on fox so called news are the ONLY EXPERTS ON ALL ISSUES IN AMERICA AND THE WORLD. Everybody else is stupid and a bunch of liars.

You are catching on Don ald Duck the union steward, QUACK!

Yup Catching on to just how QUACKIE YOU AND THE T-PUBS ARE. Better start checking into which mental hospital you want to be admitted into when all real Americans win with the re-election of Obama / Biden in November 2012

PS - I agree with Martin.

Yeah, me to. FOX awt to be required to write only Obama fluff pieces like the Clinton News Network, CBS, MSNBC, and HuffPuff Post, or risk loosing their licence and face criminal hate speech charges for not doing so.

"These people" do not represent most of the people of those countries, and probably represent few, any more than Timothy McVeigh represent "those Americans." America doesn't have to be a bellicose bully to have a coherent foreign policy. Let those new governments formed after the "Arab Spring" have the opportunity to prosecute the perpetrators. If they fail then we can do more. We also need some good PR in those countries explaining what freedom of speech is all about.

Well "humpingBuffaloHeifer"

Americans are dead because of these TERRORIST......To little to late you sound like communist obama by sending Marines after the fact! DA.
Good PR is Napalm the hell out of the muslims, they understand power. Weakness is what has brought this on DA....Carter, Clinton and Obama. Demorats have a record that they should NEVER BE IN CHARGE AGAIN, DOMESTIC ECONOMY GOES TO SHEEEET AND FOREIGN POLICY FOLLOWS WITH AMERICANS MURDERED BY DEMORATS ILLITERATE FAILED POLICY.

Neal, your knowledge of this nations foreign policy is childlike at best. While you regurgitate media spiel, the simpletons answer to world events, you are lost as to what is really going-on. We attacked Libya with the UN and then NATO because Libya, like Iraq in 2000, refused to accept US Dollars for payment on oil. Our dollars are worthless unless backed by military might. We invaded Libya, killed their leader, and looted their national treasury of gold. Iran & Syria no longer takes our dollar

The whole business of Iranian rogue nuclear program is propaganda. The world knows the truth of the supposed threat to Israel, and Netanyahu is nothing more than an actor for US media as he plays the poor threatened Jew. In truth, he affords the State dept. justification to the American people for an invasion of Iran for regime change, a very deadly and costly proposition , but if it is to save "Gods chosen race then, what's 100K American lives? Thankfully China and Russia have prevented this.

"These same people this administration encouraged to riot and overthrow the government are now attacking us" .Sir, Do you really think about things or just spread Fox news rhetoric, This attack was committed by a small group of extremists who do not represent the Libyan population. That Libyans did not vote the radicals into office in the elections proves that Libya is not a nation of extremists. Your starting to sound like the same unthinking person the GOP is trying to get elected.

well said

Martin, you and your evil dictator mentality is asinine. No American media informs Americans of the truth, not fox, or any others. You'd do better to get your news from foreign newspapers using your translator. Even though most of the Internet is blocked these days; India, Russia, and China will report truth about what this nations state department is doing. It's as much about spreading democracy, as it is telling the truth to Americans. Wise-up before you vote, American lives depend on it.
