"These Countries Are Tiny" - Obama

Strong countries are supposed to talk to their adversaries to determine where their common interests lie - that according to Barack Obama. Further more, he states that we really have nothing to fear from Cuba, Venezuela, or Iran because they're tiny and that they spend 1/100th of what we spend on military capabilities. Well Barack, well educated man that you are, let's check on the tiny statement. Let's check wikipedia, shall we?
Iran is the eighteenth largest country in the world after Libya and before Mongolia. Its area roughly equals that of the United Kingdom, France, Spain, and Germany combined, or slightly less than the state of Alaska.
Oh, did I see Germany in there? Well not to worry, Germany is so small it would never threaten anyone. I guess maybe if they were ever bent on global domination and started attacking their neighbors. Or maybe if they started to pursue nuclear weapons. Or maybe if they ... oh wait, they did those things and we had to sacrifice over 400,000 American lives and almost 4% of the global population while we bombed them back into the stone age.

Barack, this is not the same situation as Regan talking to the USSR. You can not discuss global politics and playing nice with others with countries and dictators that openly sponsor terrorism. I tell you one thing that is not tiny, and that's how naive you are and how dangerous for our country you would be.

Waiting to show Iran our military strength, as you insinuate in your speech, until they have acted would be too late. It is not acceptable for either Israel, the United States, or any other country to suffer the devastating whim of Ahmadinejad when we have the right as a civilized planet to keep him in check.

Barack, America simply can not afford your naive approach to global politics or your wife's lack of pride in our country.

##That's my opinion##

I know Beth, I'm just a right-wing, bible toting, gun clutchin conservative.

Who are Obama's advisors anyway? People who flunked off the show, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? They all need to get some basic history lessons.

Lucid Guy said...

Nice. Barack, pick a category, "I'll take 3rd grade world geography".

You people have Barack Obama mixed up with Dan Quail.

Beth said...

Matt, you spelled Dan Quayle's name wrong, you'd flunk the show, too, lol.
