Mitt Romney wasted no time after accepting the GOP presidential nomination in heading to Louisiana to see the damage from Hurricane Isaac, changing his schedule on the fly to get there the very next day.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.:-)

The SEATO pact is a mere distant memory.

How true :)
The battle for the South China Sea is heating up and has the potential to blow up in our faces, China and Russian are trying to gain control of that area rich in oil and fish....they are choosing to go against their neighbours and are poking them with verbal sticks and encroaching into parts of the area that are owned by all by putting a base on one of the Senaka islands that Japan say belongs to them.... I think China is doing this to prevoke them to see who will back down, methinks.

The disputes have been there for decades.
American propaganda machines have been playing up the issue to justify a place in Asia.
People read only one side of the story. They don't read much about the Mayor of Tokyo who has been inflaming the situation with Korea Russia and China.

So selling consumer goods is so dangerous.
Is there anything less dangerous to do like scooping up earth or milking cows?

Romney is little more than a gutless, hypocritical Neo-Con who is hell-bent on supporting Israel,

"no matter what the cost"

Sadly, Obama is even worse. I feel sorry for all freedom living Americans right now.

The rich don't care about the poor. They just want to make more wars with borrowed money.

How Mr. Romney Would Force-Feed the Pentagon
By CAROL GIACOMO
Published: August 25, 2012
The centerpiece of Mr. Romney’s proposal is a promise to spend at least 4 percent of gross domestic product on military personnel, procurement, operations and maintenance, and research and development. That would add as much as $2.3 trillion to the defense budget over 10 years

The poor don't care about themselves.

A 4% of GDP would be a drop going back to the 2007 level. We paid 4.8% in 2010.

Yeah the poor are too stupid to know the difference. The rich gives them a little trick and the bite the bony bait right away but that's how it suppose to be to keep them working for the rich.

Well no offense, but I woudn't take you to be an unbiased critic of those who oppose China....These recent events do not appear to be incited by Japan if anything it seems China causing the unrest in the area...and if I were China I would be very weary about prodding Japan....unless they want their nose broken....Japan the quiet people, have had over 6 decades of peaceful years to concentrate on winning the next time they play shoot em' ups' with the big kids...

America is far from innocent or truthful with it's actions on why they choose to be involved both militarily and politically in certain areas of the globe, that have caused death, destruction and displacement....

It is just you. Clinton and the USA knows that China is buying support in the region by giving the small nations money towards their infrastructure....America sees what China is trying to do and how these countries could become a threat to the US so they have moved in with rhetoric and next, money to try and sway them in their direction.....Neither the Americans or China are willing to share. But it is a nice, if not naive wish

Please tell me how China provoked Japan recently?
Please tell me what u know about Mayor of Tokyo and his recent actions on the disputed islands?
I don't want to be hash on u because sadly I know how the western meedia are portraying the matter.
Japan is reviving their nationalism. The the right wingers are provoking Russia, Korea and China and the weak Gov of Japan is losing ground everyday. You will only hear about China not the rest of the story. In fact Japan just recalled her ambassador to Korea. If there is a hot conflict in NE Asia it will be 3 against 1 unless US want to get involved.

Please have a bit more respect for peoples intelligence Myth...I'm talking about taking jobs from people......and you know it....basically undermining another countries manufacturing industries, to cause unemployment. You are ,no doubt,aware of this......and confusing fragility with anger, is very dangerous.
