This and That

The U.S. has a history of supporting dictators and unpopular leaders, who always fall. Why the heck don't we support the leaders who are popular with their own people for a change?

Some have said that Islam shouldn't be afforded the same freedom as other religions. Their reasoning is that Islam is a political movement disguised as a religion. Others don't buy that. I don't know. Maybe it's food for thought.

Why hasn't Obama exploited the most glaring weakness of McCain? It's on record that as a POW McCain readily gave the enemy military classified information and made propaganda broadcasts for them. He did this to make a deal to get medical treatment from the enemy. This was in violation of the Military Code of Conduct.

Russia, or any other country for that matter, can thumb their nose at us and invade who they please. We can't do a damn thing about it because George W Bush has weakened our military in Iraq to the point that we couldn't defend ourselves against the likes of Russia or China. And they know it.

We need a great president to get us out of the mess we're in. Does either Obama or McCain strike you as great?

Let's hope that the next president immediately rebuilds our military and focuses on getting our real enemy--Osama Bin Ladin, perpetrator of 9-11.
