Putin has now abducted a Estonian border guard. It is a direct, in-your-face response to Obama's speech that it will be war with the NATO countries and the U.S. Obama is such a bitch, he did absolutely nothing when the American Embassy was taken in Libya. He won't do shit. He thinks the Russians are so stupid , how can they live when there is another "Mc'y D's" closes as a sanction. Chelsea is looking for a new job and thinking about public service. There is a vacant post as Ambassador to Libya.... Hey mom, WOULD IT MATTER THEN? He can't believe the world is laughing at him. Don't they know he has the same job as George W and Reagan, the stupidest men that Obama can think of. The idiot can't even defend the store from the animals in Ferguson where the trouble began. He obviously thinks the store owner started the trouble by attempting to keep his Swisher Sweets from the brutal piece of shit. He sends a delegation to the funeral of a piece of shit and talks dereliction of duty of the men that rushed into harms way to try and save the Ambassador in Libya. Too much drug abuse.
But at the end of that day, nobody died, nobody lost their health care, thousands of ILLEGAL ALIENS didn’t come pouring over the border, and there was only a fraction of the chaos in the world as a result of his actions.
You think the USA has the monopoly of illegal aliens, lost health care etc. You think that the USA is unique in these and other countries don't have such problems?
You should try UK mate, the National Health Service is a mere shadow of what it once was, nurses pay became so bad they needed to bring in nurses from the Philippines, VAT is the highest in Europe, rising state pension ages so one contributes (pays) for longer to receive less, in a number of UK cities one can play "spot the white man", immigration officers at London (the world's busiest airport and gateway to UK) Airport wearing turbans, the train tunnel from France a "free for all" for every illegal alien from Afgan to Iraqi to Iranian, Asian (former British Commonwealth) supposed students coming to UK to study and work a maximum of something like 20 hours per week to support their studies ... they're not going anywhere near a school, they're too busy working full time jobs ...
And somehow you believe Obama is responsible for the world's problems? :)
I slept on a bench in Heathrow one night waiting for a connecting flight. At 5:00 A.M. the Costas Coffee kiosk opened. I was the only one in the area for 200 feet. There was an iron fence around the seating area about 2 feet high and tight quarters to take my luggage to the counter. I left the luggage at the fence about 10 feet away and without taking my eyes of the bag , ordered my coffee. Just then a security officer walked through a passage and my bag. She stopped and without asking I announced it was my bag. She said , "sir, don't leave your bag unattended" I told her I was watching it and she didn't even have to inquire about it. She repeated the same statement. I asked how far is unattended. She loudly repeated the same. I told her I wanted to understand to stay in compliance. She then told me, "It comes down to common sense". She about mid 50's, 4'-10", over weight, alone and unarmed. Thinking "common sense" ,,,,,, I pointed to the guy , working at the door with a turban, go mess with him. Two days later an employee at Frankfurt airport shot and killed U.S. service men on their way home and there are heavily armed squads that roam the airport.
YES! I do think he is responsible for many of the problems at home and abroad. He didn’t create all of the problems,,, but has made them many times worse.
I’ve lived here since 2008,,, and I lived here before!
Every time I watch the news on TV, or online,,, he’s doing something to hurt this country! I don’t think he is stupid or incompetent,,, so it must be intentional!
I know Europe has it’s own problems with illegals.
I'm not one for debating politics ... However Bush Senior, after the invasion of Kuwait, left Hussein in position because he was, conveniently for USA, keeping Iran in order.
Once it was realised that Senior had f*cked up it was left to his offspring to think of some excuse to have Hussein removed.
Ah yes, the infamous "weapons of mass destruction' that Bush claimed Hussein had but have never been found!
Junior intentionally invaded a country solely to remove it's leader, that is illegal under international law and Junior might consider himself fortunate that he didn't face a war crimes trial!
You say nobody died whilst Junior was in office, admittedly with hindsight the satellites had monitored the Al Qaeda camps emptying in the run up before 9/11, it was known that something was to imminently happen, then the US war on terror in Afganistan as a result of not doing anything to prevent 9/11 happening, then the illegal invasion of Iraq, are you quite sure that nobody died whilst Junior was in office?
The classic with 9/11 being that those guys learned to fly in USA flying school establishments so Junior supposedly clamped down on immigration for pupils coming to learn to fly in USA.
A few years later I was sending flying students to train on the Saab2000 aircraft in Vero Beach, Florida.
Unbelievably there was still no appropriate visa for students to come to learn to fly in USA. Admittedly the flying school needed to have each student TSA cleared but the only visa's we could apply for were tourist visas and every one of my flying students went through US immigration declaring themself to be a tourist on holiday when they were actually coming to learn to fly an airliner!

Martin,,, ultimately it was Bush’s (B1) fault for leaving Hussein in power,,,, but it was Powell and Schwarzkopf’s (the two heroes of the war) advice to do so. They thought it would be over kill for the mighty US to pick on a small country,,, and that’s why they didn’t over take Bagdad.
Between that and the “Read my lips,,, no new taxes) mistake,,, Bush (GHWB) would have won his 2nd term, and we may not have ever had a Clinton era.
And about those WMDs,,, Saddam did have them,,, we just didn’t find them, but ISIS did! But some people are trying to split hairs by saying that they have degraded,,, forgetting that 2003 was 11 years ago.
Did anyone expect them to be in pristine condition??
Martin: “You say nobody died whilst Junior was in office”
No I didn’t! I said/meant that nobody died from him not knowing who “Beatrix” was.
DONETSK/MARIUPOL Ukraine (Reuters) - A woman died and at least four people were wounded when fighting flared again in eastern Ukraine overnight into Sunday, jeopardizing a ceasefire struck less than two days earlier between Ukrainian government forces and pro-Russian separatists.
The accord, brokered by envoys from Ukraine, the separatist leadership, Russia and Europe's OSCE security watchdog, is part of a peace plan intended to end a five-month conflict that has killed nearly 3,000 people and caused the sharpest confrontation between Russia and the West since the Cold War.
Shelling resumed near the port of Mariupol on the Sea of Azov late on Saturday, just hours after Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian counterpart Petro Poroshenko had agreed in a phone call that the truce was holding.
Fighting also broke out early on Sunday on the northern outskirts of rebel-held Donetsk, the region's industrial hub. A Reuters reporter saw plumes of black smoke filling the sky near the airport, which has been in the hands of government forces.
"Listen to the sound of the ceasefire," joked one armed rebel. "There's a proper battle going on there."
