Two days after ending the war in Iraq, President Obama on Monday issued a “national action plan” aimed at giving women a bigger role in resolving conflicts around the world.

“Deadly conflicts can be more effectively avoided, and peace can be best forged and sustained when women become equal partners in all aspects of peace-building and conflict prevention,” the White House said in a 26-page document.

Margaret Thatcher, Golda Mier and Indira Gandhi...

Yep. Go a little further back and we have Elizabeth I of England, Catherine the Great of Russia, Maria Theresa of Austria, Zenobia of Palmyra, Isabella of Spain, Theodora of Constantinople, Livia of Rome, and that's just off the top of my head...

He has never met my ex-wife. We would be in nuclear winter if that was the case.

Yeah, but judging by insider reports, he doesn’t really spend much time around her - or her around him - both of which for reasons which should be obvious.

I wonder if Obama ever read, A Regiment of Women? I bet he’d approve.

One of the viewers suggested freezing this video at 0:01. Good idea.

When it comes to savagery that keeps on giving, women(with many exceptions, obviously) are capable of taking evil to unimaginable depths. Especially when they choose to never forgive or forget. Bitterness is a flame that burns until the last splinter is consumed.

The executive order directs the Defense and State departments and the U.S. Agency for International Development to “accelerate, institutionalize, and better coordinate our efforts to advance women’s inclusion in peace negotiations, peace-building activities, and conflict prevention.”

Yep—exactly-—Zero has been deserted by both “fathers” and had no decent role model (why he is a pansy)

He did have a tranny nanny in Indonesia, doesn't that count for something?

“We women have forgotten more about cruelty than you could ever remember,” she (Elizabeth I) spits, and adds that she wants the traitors “alive when you cut out their hearts and their bowels.”

LOL! I’ve got a wife and two daughters (and my brother-in-law and father-in-law are lawyers).

In the shower I sing that old ABBA song:

Waterloo - I was defeated, you won the war
Waterloo - Promise to love you for ever more
Waterloo - Couldn’t escape if I wanted to
Waterloo - Knowing my fate is to be with you
Waterloo - Finally facing my Waterloo

My only defense is threatening to become a Muslim and pronouncing Talaq-Talaq-Talaq

He lies... but my point was that he knows those three subjects... he knows nothing else... since he is evil... he is always lying... even if he tells the truth... it is encased in another lie.

Oh yeah....women are so peaceful

Just any of a zillion of the aborted babies whose first glimpse of life was to be chewed up and sucked out into the sanitary sewer system or the dumpster out back

At the hands of a peaceful woman

Obama: Women can make world more peaceful

if they could find a way to utterly eliminate the initiation of force in all forms of human relationships.

Obama desperate for Votes. Is openly pandering to the Feminist Vote which is not going to the GOP anyway. The war in Libya was decided by Three US Women. Susan Rice, Hilliary Clinton and Susannah Powers. So why not? Obama is a spineless coward. Who has no problem sending off other people’s Sons to War.

Indira Ghandi fought a war with China while Prime Minister. Margaret Thatcher sent the UK to retake the Falklands from Argentina. Golda Meir fought a war with Egypt and Syria while PM of Israel. Yeah Women are more peaceful what a bunch of nonsense and stupidity that is.

I believe it was in 1973 when there were three countries with the world with female heads of state, Israel, India and I-forget. Anyway, all three were at war with their neighbors, India with Pakistan, Israel with Araby and I forget.

Are women really more peaceful than men, or do they just not hit as hard?

PING!
