The lady in your Maldives photo had best get a burka. “The emergence of hard-line Islam in the Maldives is stoking concern in neighboring India that it could be used as a potential base for Islamist militants.” I guess Obama has already given covert assistance there. From misusing the Argentine term for the Falklands, O has tipped his hand. Sorry Britian.
“...the idiot would know the difference between the two.”
Considering the preliminary work Hillary Clinton did in publicly stating “we need to look into it again” or similar, and who knows what behind the scenes, Obama’s use of the name Malvinas was a message for Argentina, the UK, and South America. I seriously doubt it was a slip, but rather an open message.
He knows which name goes with which sovereign nation. With Chavez on the way out, there are big changes coming to South America. Russia has been investing and providing Kalashnikovs and ammo. No accident the Obama crew including Hillary are in Columbia right now.
Let me amend and revise my statement...his mistake was getting the name wrong but he was clearly trying to use the name Argentina uses for the Falklands. Calling them the Maldives was a goof, but the primary intent was to make a statement of political alignments and loyalties.
