    Dissidents or dictators? Hard to tell nowadays. I'm not so much in favor of sending money or troops, but speaking out is something the administration can do:

    Aw c'mon Grump, it's a no-brainer here. Of course America is becoming isolationist since Gibbs isn't yelling about democracy and freedom while denouncing our "enemies" 24/7. We all know if the White House spokesman isn't posturing about it for the cameras, especially in foreign policy, nothing is happening and we officially don't give a shit. :rolleyes:

    What does the US stand for, well as one living outside the US, I can tell you it stands for freedom, democracy, and it stands for the advancement of Enlightenment values. That is what the rest of the world wants you to stand for.

    Despite your economic woes, you guys and gals are still the Superpower the rest of the democratic world counts on.

    My own nation is with you more often than not, I would hope the rest of the democratic world feels the same. Australia may sell rocks to China but it looks to America for fellowship.

    We all hang together, or we all hang separately.

    I gave my comment. I guess you are favorably impressed by the administrations foreign policy? It bodes well for both US and world? It's much safer with Obama and his crack team? Seriously, I'd love to hear your take on his policies abroad. Iran? Syria? Russia? Israel? Poland? All great in your opinion?

    The Wall Street Journal isn't exactly what it used to be either. That article was pretty partisan and commonplace for them of late for example.

    Well the OP is right... Our "President" is not with US... He's a Marxist, who stands against everything America stand for... and as a tyrant, he tends to stand with tyrants.

    It's the nature of the beast; and it'll get worked in November... when he is convered to a lame brown-duck.
