    I do not understand all of the pride in a foreign leaders influence in our US government by those who claim to be the most patriotic in America....


    Anyone care to enlighten me on how this makes any sense?

    99% of the time there is no way this could happen.

    But once in a while there is a Churchill, or a Bismark or something similar. I was only able to come up with two names.
    (The competition for those two here were Andrew Johnson and the likes of Rutherford B Hays.)

    Netanayahu is pretty special as a politician. And right now the quality of Leadership in Washington is conspicuous by its absence.

    Sometimes the leadership in several different countries is of high quality. Reagan and Thatcher were running around at the same time.

    And sometimes leadership is appalling. During the 20's England had Chamberlain and the US had Coolidge.

    I admire Israel for all they've accomplished since 1948.

    That being said, I can't understand why they picked the absolute worst place in the entire world the set up a Jewish homeland.

    They had to know what they'd be up against going in.

    Checkpoint Washington - Netanyahu: 'America is a thing you can move very easily'


    I know what America is," Netanyahu told a group of terror victims, apparently not knowing his words were being recorded. "America is a thing you can move very easily, move it in the right direction. They won't get in their way."

    Netanyahu also bragged how he undercut the peace process when he was prime minister during the Clinton administration. "They asked me before the election if I'd honor [the Oslo accords]," he said. "I said I would, but ... I'm going to interpret the accords in such a way that would allow me to put an end to this galloping forward to the '67 borders. How did we do it? Nobody said what defined military zones were. Defined military zones are security zones; as far as I'm concerned, the entire Jordan Valley is a defined military zone. Go argue."

    I don't understand a President who kowtows to our enemies and treats our allies like shit.

    Netanyahu might decide to run for political office here in the US with these new developments.


    Essentially everyone in his own country hates him, he's a lame duck. He doesn't speak for even a large minority of Israelis, so I don't know why everyone is blindly assuming he's speaking for all of them.

    Ahh you mean freedom fries and such while forming the alliance of the willing? Cutting off aid and such for those who would not go along?

    See the whole picture keep partisan blinders out of reality.

    No, that's not what I meant.

    Here's some of what I meant:

    President Obama
