We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
It's not so much that the ? is getting into political trouble: it is that the thugs of the world can detect a weak sister, which will get US, the US, into geopolitical trouble. He will take us down. I hope that at some stage his narcissism will kick in and he will strike back at those who are disrespecting him, such as Thugo, DinnerJacket, Putan.
For those who don't like their faces red, I suggest you read the full transcript of Monseuir Sarkozy's speech before You should check out the complete transcript of Sarkozy’s franceonu.org/spip.php?article4170. Sarkozy ain't mocking Obama, he's pointing fingers at the U.S.'s foreign policy for the past four years, and appaluding Obama's courage.
“The people of the entire world are listening to what we’re saying, to our promises, our commitments and our speeches, but we live in a real world, not a virtual world.
We say: reductions must be made. And President Obama has even said, “I dream of a world without [nuclear weapons].” Yet before our very eyes, two countries are currently doing the exact opposite. Since 2005, Iran has violated five Security Council resolutions. Since 2005, Secretary-General, the international community has called on Iran to engage in dialogue. An offer of dialogue was made in 2005, an offer of dialogue was made in 2006, an offer of dialogue was made in 2007, an offer of dialogue was made in 2008, and another one was made in 2009. President Obama, I support the Americans’ outstretched hand. But what did the international community gain from these offers of dialogue? Nothing. More enriched uranium, more centrifuges, and on top of that, a statement by Iranian leaders proposing to wipe a UN member State off the map.
If we want in the end to have a world without nuclear weapons, let us not accept the violation of international rules.
So, ladies and gentlemen, my dear colleagues, this is what I believe, in full support of what was decided in the resolution and in full support of President Obama’s initiative.
