    Oh boy! I can't wait for " all the latest coverage from the presidential election." I can't risk going to the bathroom and miss what our candidates have to say.
    Don't worry about Bernake disguising more bank bailouts as the QE3 stimulus. Don't worry about China taking over the world market with the Yuan. Don't worry that China and Russia are using the Yuan as accepted and payment for oil. Don't worry about hyper-inflation. I'm sure our candidates will address this and everything will be alright. Don't worry, move along, nothing to see here..........

    I see where the protestors set fire to the "German" embassy in Khartoum. I guess we don't have a US embassy there huh ? Someone probably figures President Obama will apologize for that one too.
    This just shows those people will use any excuse to start a riot.

  8. Backwhen

    Back when Bill Clinton was president and ardent supporter of the Taliban along with Pakistan, Usama bin Laden attacked a US embassy in Nairobi, Kenya. In retaliation, Bill Clinton ordered a cruise missile attack on a pharmaceutical production facility in Khartoum, Sudan! (Aug 20, 1998)
    1998. The year OBL made the FBI's Most wanted list.

    A husband and wife are waiting at the bus stop, and with them are their
    nine children.
    A blind man joins them after a few minutes.When the bus arrives,they find it overloaded and only the wife and the
    nine kids are able to fit in the bus. So the husband and the blind man
    decide to walk. After a while the husband gets irritated by the ticking
    of the stick of the blind man as he taps it on the side walk and says to him:
    Why dont you put a piece of rubber at the end your stick, that ticking
    sound is driving me crazy!
    The blind man replies:
    If you wouldve put a rubber on the end of YOUR stick, wed be riding
    the bus, so shut the heck up!

    We had a good excuse for protesting, @bobcat. It didn't do any good other than provide a vent for frustrations. The fed still hasn't been audited. Oh well. Maybe next time eh?

    all those wise folks decrying policies of the current admn vis a vis M.East forget that the mess we managed to land ourselves in and alienation of whole regions are the result of the policies from the Bush-Cheney era of infamy. unfortunately for this nation, the policies have not deviated from the same because the mindset up on the Hill dominantly hasn't changed.

    Iraq invasion was on the drawing board even before 9/11. Everyone now knows about the Carlyle Group connection and oil contracts.
    Bush-Cheney cartel needed a Pear Harbor to proceed with their agenda and 9/11 was made to happen. Iraq invasion,Afghanistan, from then onwards it has been downhill for American geo-political interests , loss of credibility, clout. And losing influence in strategic regions and loss to our economic interests.
    Our clinging self destructively to the notion of promoting Israeli regime interests at the cost of our own as pushed by the dominant mind set in the Congress is proving more harmful by the day.

      For the life of me can't remember who said it but ... it goes something like this; "man has always wanted to dominate man"
      You are on the mark with that statement as the human history is your "citation" 😉
      Good evening @ saywhat. I assume your sleeping peacefully in your fuzzy bunnies... Lol Just teasing
      Night hope to see you tomorrow

    'Blow back' in libya and Syria seems to be heading the same way. Our efforts to keep the military rulers in Egypt propped up after the popular uprising have back fired.
    Proof of our failed policy of interventionism and military adventurism.

      We keep propping up leaders then supply the "rebels" to take them out. It's a foreign policy trend that the world has been sick of and a lot of American's are finally being exposed to. It's old and broken and it has to stop.

      @ saywhat, I was under the assumption that we still owned the Egyptian Military ... Do we?
      Sounded like it to me when Obama said

      "If Egypt takes actions that "indicate they're not taking responsibilities, as all other countries do where we have embassies, I think that's going to be a real big problem," Obama said.

      Sounds to me like a threat...

    The likes of McCain, Lieberman and that whole mindset up on the Hill is to be congratulated for pushing the misguided and foolish concept of airstrikes, arming and abetting the 'opposition' every which place.
    blowback in Libya and Syria heading the same way.

      "Blowback" Ya know some terms just stick out... and this is DEFINITELY one of them ! 😉
      It causes much pain to the unintended; friendly fire tho is anything but... I'd stick to "blowback" , its' more accurate to me.
      Thanks for the new word @ saywhat 🙂
