A *pussy*. This guy makes Clinton look like Eisenhower.
We also used to have a CIA that made sure that a whole bunch of sterile surplus military rifles and ammo that couldn't be tracked back to us (or at least with enough plausible deniability cover) would just show up at the right time when say, a bloodthirsty African dictator needed a bullet in the face. Or maybe that loudmouth MFer would get a smart bomb down his chimney while he's sleeping.
We need to go back to those days, because our President who's trying the opposite approach of bumping fists with dictators and low-fives on the back hand side and bowing to cretins along with a bunch of jive-ass speechifying is only emboldening people all over the world who just can't wait to be enemies of the USA.
Otherwise I agree with you. Nations do NOT get, keep or maintain their power by being nice. They do it with judicious use of POWER. When and where needed. If you don't have the balls to USE it, then you don't have the balls to lead this Nation. Obama has no balls at all.
