And Israel?

Reader comment on item: A Call for American Boldness in Iran
in response to reader comment: Iranian Boldness is needed, not American boldness

I think more than just the Iranians have a dog in this fight. Those folks in the street not only need our verbal support loud and clear, so does Israel. But with this president, that's certainly not going to happen. And now we have Kim Jung Il taking advantage of weak, spineless leadership in Washington, even threatening to "wipe the United States off the map." And I guess we don't have a dog in that fight either.

We have become a joke. Daniel Ortega spent an hour slandering and insulting America in a diatribe of hate right in front of Obama a few months back, and what's Obama do? Nothing, and says nothing. It's become sickening and embarrassing. Obama makes of point of telling a Muslim audience in Turkey that "America is not a Christian nation." Whatever his point of telling them that, it was a very telling sign of how he sees his country and how disgustingly appeasing and butt sniffing he is to Islam, besides all the apologizing for Bush, yet never once mentioning our liberation of Muslims in Kuwait, Bosnia, Kosova, and Afganistan. I can't stand this president. I see him and hear him and I want to puke.
