    Reagan's foreign policy resulted in over 200 dead Marines in Lebenon. And the Marines on guard were not allowed to have their guns loaded.

    The ME and North Africa are the most politically and religiously volatial places on Earth. We cannot control their reactions or the violence there. We can only make sure those that harm Americans with no reason come to a bad end. President Obama has been very good at making that happen, in contrast to the previous administration.

    Richard Hass was on Morning Joe today and said something that really stuck with me all day.

    If the host nation can not guarantee the safety of out embassy staff then what's the point.

    What's the point of having an embassy.

    I say what's the point of having diplomatic relations with that country.
    I feel we should sever ties with these countries and halt all aid until they gain control of their fucking people and can provide,more importantly guarantee the safety of our staff.

    First step...get the people that did this.

    This thread isn't about Reagan or Bush.
    Pointing to their failures does nothing to mitigate Obama's.

    I believe he is referring to the ones in Egypt.

    True but who ever had them shooting blanks to begin with needs to be relieved of duty. If not charged with negligence

    Except we're not discussing Reagan, numbnuts.
    It's Obama. The most failed president since Baby Doc Duvalier.

    He made an outreach to the Arab World with his Cairo speech. And this is the result.
    He made an outreach to Russia with his "re-set the agenda" speech. And they are arming the Syrian government.
    He promised to sit down and talk to Iran. And they are quickening their development of nuclear weapons.
    He went to Copenhagen to work on carbon emissions. Total bust.
    The Chinese are not only not very cooperative, they own our ass.

    Is there any bright spot here that you see, other than he will be out in January?
