#4 "to allow transit of U.S. non-lethal supplies to Afghanistan."
Oh, food, medical supplies, new socks, but no ammo. No weapons. That's nice. That's real help.

#5 Russia wants to open discussions on thorny policy issues that Washington and Moscow have clashed on in recent years _ NATO enlargement, missile defense in Europe, a new strategic arms control treaty. More importantly, Russia's expectation is that Washington must go through Moscow where Central Asia is concerned.

Is the price worth it Barak Obama?

#6 I don't think Obama gives a rats patootie for foreign issues except insofar as they might pose a problem for his intent to force a hard left revolution here under the guise of laws and regulations. That's why he was perfectly happy to have Clinton at State and Gates at DOD for now.

#7 Clinton considered issues of acts of war a bother to his domestic agenda. The Big O is picking up where Clinton left off.

The US will appear weak, our enemies will take advantage of this to further their agenda. They will exploit weakness. They will slowly back us into a corner. They will infiltrate this country at an accelerating pace. The Big O will really mess something up that will cost this country thousands in casualties. Everyone will go apesh*t, the Big O's presidency will go down in flames, we will be bankrupt, and if we have enough stout hearts, we will rebuild this country from scratch. But we will have lost a great deal. A great deal.
