Obama’s giveaway: Oil-rich islands to Russia
Please read. Discuss.
Author’s addendum, Feb. 17, 2012: This is not a new issue. In fact the Bush and Clinton administrations are directly at fault for the same inaction. A maritime agreement negotiated by the U.S. State Department set the Russian boundary on the other side of the disputed islands, but no treaty has ratified this action. Consequently, it is within the president’s power to stop this giveaway. The Alaska delegation’s failure to put pressure on the administration is inexplicable. State Department Watch, an organization that assisted with this article, has confronted each administration and is currently confronting the Obama administration — and has been met by silence. I’m hoping this piece will help reinvigorate efforts to stop this handover.
I'll have you know America sent 34,000 troops to the Aleutian Islands to retake them from the Axis in 1943's WWII. It's only the second time in United States History a foreign enemy has taken our land away from us, the first being in the War of 1812.
The Obama BADministration is NOT WELCOME TO GIVE AWAY any part of the State of Alaska, we the people paid for it in our troops blood.
I've been disappointed with some things Obama has done in the past but there is very little background from which to draw a solid conclusion about this issue. So until more is known about Obama's motive in this transaction I'm keeping an open mind with consideration for the fact that Russia can be an extremely valuable ally -- especially in a hot conflict with Iran.
The notion that Obama just handed over such valuable resources with nothing in return makes absolutely no sense and seems like typical right-wing propaganda.
What's next. The Panama canal?
Oh wait..that was given away too..
World News Daily?
The Russians have contributed to an Atomic Iran. Guess who financed the schema. Washington politicians. For campaign contribution money from pro-Iranian benefactors. Who loses?
America loses. Miami. New York City. Gulf Coast States within firing range of Russian and Iranian missiles in Venezuela, where a paranoid Chavez who blames America for his cancer is happy to collaborate with lethal American enemies.
Democrat Jimmy Carter sold out American interests in Panama.
Bill Clinton defended America from Iran by bombing out a vacated aspirin factory in Iran on his watch.
Obama badmouthed working Americans in Europe, put the American government in charge of failed banks whose smooth operators got millions in bonuses thanks to money Obama collected from workin' stiffs, and now he's gonna have as good a legacy as Carter by giving away oil resources in Alaska after voting no on ANWR.
All he's gonna get outta the deal is one term. Enough for him.
Yeah, by another one of your democrats, Swallow.
obama is clearly wearing the blue dress for Putin
