Alexander the Great

Reader comment on item: The One-Minute Guide to Obama's Foreign Policy
in response to reader comment: I have to disagree with this one

A comment from Greece? Isn't that the most "failed state" of the European Union?

Didn't your country - so to speak - in ancient times, give us an Empire right before Rome?

Is that not why there is resentment that "the [Olympic] torch has passed" to the United States?

And why do you side with the Shias, as opposed to the Sunnis? I do not recall Aristotle having any thoughts even about Theocracies. In accordance with Ancient Greek Political Science I imagine that bringing gods, or God, into Political Science was a no-no. True, each city-state had it's patron god or goddess - but nothing resembling the current Atatollah.

Unfortunately our Obama is not a true American Cowboy - so Iran gets to keep it Ayatollah.

But one never knows - Houssein Obama did take out Osama Bin Laden!

I'm not that sure Obama is so bad for the United States - especially if a Republican gets elected next term and takes advantage of the situation Obama's administration has created. After all, as Churchill observed, the "United States always does the right thing - after it exhausts all the other possibilities."
