Obama's words carry about as much weight as a wet paper bag. Thanks to Obama's decision to reduce America's military might no one fears or respects us anymore and you need just take a look round the globe to see all the wars flaming up with no end in site. Weakness breeds hostility while strength creates peace....but for liberals that is beyond their comprehension. A strong America could stand and make a statement where the bad guys would at least fear us and back off ...but the bad guys laugh at us now and ignore us so Obama's words are just so much spit in the wind. So much for weakness...

By the way - Iran is fueling this hostility in Israel giving weapons to all their suggogate bad guys to fire off misiles. Iran knows the US will do nothing ...and they are spot on correct. Russia knows the same thing..

Want more wars? Stay weak.

The President's remarks and setting looks like an old mad scolding recalcitrant children from his porch. They know he is powerless to intervene and they ignore him, and continue to throw rocks at his dog or run a stick down the stakes in his picket fence. Sad.

But all is not lost, we have a Secretary of State who is fluent in French, that language of diplomacy - that should help.

Surely the casualties way over there are concerning, but what about our Southern Border? Call me crazy but I'm a bit more concerned over the closer and more immediate threat. Perhaps we should start by labeling the drug cartels under the "T" word since they are. Hmmm. Or just keep ignoring the immigration issue until it slaps us in the face first.

@patriot and strider

Two thing, Our military is still larger then the next several countries compined and these countries act towards us the same way they always have. The size of our military and who are president is has never effected these Middle East conflicts.
What exactly do you suggest this president do differently rhetoric is cheap please give us specifics.

Israel cannot agree to a truce unless all the infiltration tunnels located and destroyed. Hamas would just use them to enter Israel again to seek out civilians to kidnap or kill.

When this first occurred, Obama while in Delaware, was laughing and joking as if this was no big deal.

The nest day he got serious to save face.

Re: Strider, Patriot and Worf

You and the rest of the Neo's pathetic never ending hatred and criticizing of the POTUS has done more to gut the administration and affect the worlds opinion of the U.S.

It is a figment of your lock step imagination if you think we are weak! You are the weaklings! I am thankful we have a POTUS that presses on inspite of the hatred and opposition to every little thing he attempts. He at least is trying, just what is it that you are doing other than trying to divide, delay and destroy!

@Ralph West Jordan,

* The word hatred comes from you. Speaking out is an American right few have had through out history.
* If Obama was concerned for casualties, why has he sent billions of dollars worth of military weapons to many countries?
* Why did he release 36,000 convicted prisoners from American prisons, and five murderous terrorists? He hasn't closed the borders.
* What happened to the stimulus money, and the shovel ready jobs? Solyndra?
* How many campaign promises have been kept?

What kind of person would sit back and say nothing? Wake up!

Re: Worf

" The word hatred comes from you. Speaking out is an American right few have had through out history." All very true! Hate is what I hear in your posts when you refer to the present POTUS! And speaking our is a cherished right, and I laud you for doing so, even if I disagree on the content!

"If Obama was concerned for casualties, why has he sent billions of dollars worth of military weapons to many countries?" Were you this upset when Bush, Reagan, Bush and every other president did the same!

"Why did he release 36,000 convicted prisoners from American prisons, and five murderous terrorists? He hasn't closed the borders." Forgive me I am not up to date on the 36,000 prisoners he allegedly release, would be interested in learning more about that. As for the five murderous terrorists, it was more than justified, as he received 1 American serviceman in return. A bargain at best, and save your breath about him being an alleged traitor. He hasn't been charged tried or convicted, you know another one of our cherished rights, innocent until proven quilty.

"How many campaign promises have been kept?" One word covers it OBAMACARE!

@Ralph West Jordan,

* Taking money from people to pay for someone elses medical bills is theft.
* I don't do other peoples homework. Finding the release of 36,000 prisoners is easy to find, and common knowledge.
* There were other ways to release our serviceman without freeing five terrorists who will kill again.

Re: Worf

" Finding the release of 36,000 prisoners is easy to find, and common knowledge." If it is common knowledge how come you are the first person I have heard mentioning it. Like I said I would like to hear more, espesially your take!

The rest of your points are pretty much AM Radio rhetoric, nothing origional, a dead horse that has been beaten adnauseum!

Re Worf:

You are right "Finding the release of 36,000 prisoners is easy to find, and common knowledge."! I just Googled it and it took me right to the source! Can you believe, Rush Limbaugh! Silly Me! It gives me great satisfaction knowing that this information came from the pinnacle fountain of truth and knowledge! Thank You Worf!!

@Ralph West Jordan,

If you trust the major news networks, they reported it also. CNN, CBS, etc.

As for Rush, state one false statement he has ever made. Plenty of false statements can be found with Obama, Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, and the major news. Who has been more trustworthy?

I actually do my own research. Much from people who are involved. I live a few miles from the Mexican border, and know some cartel members. I can tell you, the news distorts, and doesn't report everything.

um "Talent on lone from God" God doesn't use his position to incite hate, fear, and misinformation.

but here are 3 fav's

"Some of the wealthiest Americans are African-American now."

President Barack Obama shut down NASA space flights and turned the agency "into a Muslim outreach department."

Says it's not "accidental" that the villain in the Batman movie is named Bane.

Perhaps we should arm both sides, instead of giving Israel the means to destroy their neighbors,
and washing our hands of it, while blaming Russia for suppling the means to shoot down that plane.
