Dem. Congressman: "Let [Russia] Invade Georgia. It's Right Next to Them."
The Weekly Standard ^ | 11/03/08 | John McCormack

Posted on 11/03/2008 3:42:04 AM PST by DocT111

At an event at a Boca Raton synagogue, Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) said that the United States should let Russia invade Georgia. Beginning at the 3:50 mark in the following YouTube video, which was recorded by Pamela Geller of the blog Atlas Shrugs, Nadler says:

We have not been willing to put our priorities properly. We have not been willing to say ... "Hey Russia, we won't expand NATO into the Ukraine and Georgia, right next to your borders, if you cooperate with us on Iran." ...

I think Iran and Israel are a hell of a lot more important than expanding NATO to Russia's borders. Why should we? What do we need it for?

Someone in the crowd says: "Because they invaded Georgia."

Nadler retorts: "So let 'em invade Georgia. It's right next to them. Would we tolerate a foreign--a Russian army in Mexico? Which is more important to us Georgia or Israel, frankly?"

Another voice in the crowd asks Nadler: "What is more important to us Czechoslovakia or Austria?"

"That's a completely separate kind of question," Nadler replies.

I can’t believe we are about to turn our entire government over to democratic socialists and marxists.

This is the same event where Nadler said Obama was “not politically courageous” by staying in Wright’s church-afraid of offending blacks if he left the church.

Israel is right next to Syria and not too far from Iran. Should we let them attack Israel? Let him explain that to his constituents. Why any Jew would vote for ANY Democrat is beyond me.

Commie puke!!! I have to wonder IF the lunatic rage over removing Saddam in Iraq was really all about liberals creating a Russian dominated oil cartel. Little else makes sense considering how our liberals have made our own resources their places of worship.

Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) is such a fat fool.

According to his way of thinking then it is ok for mexico and mexicans to continue their invasion of the u.S.A.?

And yes, it is time for this human garbage disposal to go and a whole passel of others too.

Think that this speaks volumes about this assclown’s constituency if he's voted back in to office.

“Let Cuba have Florida, it’s right next to them”

NO! NO! Let’s reverse that, shall we. Many of the inhabitants of Florida would welcome the annexation of Cuba. Surely “The NAD” would not object to that.

The recent push into South Ossetia was about Kosovo and that BTC pipeline; it does not appear to have been about any sort of a Russian desire to own Georgia. The Russian (and Orthodox World) position on Kosovo is obvious. The position on BTC should be to American leaders or anybody who reads history at least. Russians almost certainly figure that but for the sacrifice of some 20,000,000 Russian lives in WW-II, the holder in due course of all that Caspian and Central Asian oil would have been Adolf Hitler and the Georgians and Central Asians would have been processed into soap and lampshades. They’re plainly not happy with the idea of anybody simply walking off with all that oil due to any accident of geography.

I thought Nadler had lipo or stomach surgery and lost a ton of weight. Is that an old picture? Can’t believe he put it all back on.

Let Canada have Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Upstate NY (they'd refuse NY City), the UP of Michigan (they'd refuse DeRot), Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana, Idaho and Washington (they'd refuse Seattle - heck, Chief Seattle would reject his namesake) and Mexico California, Arizona, NewMexico and Texas...it is right next to them!!

While we are at it... Lets give Russia Alaska, and the US Vergin Islands to the British!!

The Georgians didn't want to be invaded by the Russian Empire in the early 1800’s, they didn't want to be invaded by the Russian Soviet Federated Socialist Republic in 1918, and they didn't want to be invaded by the Russian Federation in 2008.

That Stalin and his commissars sent 20 million Russians to their death by their incompetent conduct of the war against Hitler does not constitute an obligation by the Georgian people to meekly submit to the rapacious greed of the evil kleptocrats in the Kremlin today.

What is there about the concept of freedom that you have difficulty grasping?

You’re claiming that Georgia could have stopped Hitler on its own?

BTC pipeline: Turkish, British and partly American owned. Sure. Take it.

Not likely.

I'm saying that Georgia owes nothing to Georgia's rapists.

If you feel the Kremlin Kleptocrats are owed something by all means open your bank account and send them your own money. Give til it hurts.

If I had to pick one country in that part of the world to describe as a rape victim it would be Serbia and not Georgia.

Try asking that question after the UN steps in demanding that we simply hand the entire American South West over to Mexico on the same perverted basis SlicK KKKlinton went into Kosovo over.

Does this mean we can invade Mexico, Canada and Cuba? (Well, counter-invade Mexico...)

So? Call Putin and no doubt he will be happy to rape the Serbs for you as well.

So far Russia is the only country which has made any serious effort to help Serbia rebuild.
