And Russia gave up nothing? White House amateurs.

The Messiah will make foreign leaders love us again, because they now have confirmation that they can walk all over the USA. They had a hint in seeing our SOS get swept aside the last 3-4 months, but now they know our leadership is weak all the way to the top.

Barack Obama is the greatest president in history. We should all be proud of the leader that will finally bring harmony to our nation.

Good, very good. Why? When the Judge gives a "Warrant of Arrest" to the paedophile Pope the lover of the USA the Door will be wide Open just like the Doors of Babylon (now know as Iraq)were. There will be not need to used ICMBs to Nuke the Catholic supporters who might try the Judge from reaching the Vatican. Obama junks Bush's anti-ballistic missile shield. Ha ha ha, the Roman Catholic Chuch is Doom Doom and the Vatican will become Ground Zero. Ha ha ha Obama does not love the Catholics paedophiles that abused over 60,000 USA children like Bush used to. There will be no Tomb Stone to remember the paedophile Pope when the Roman Catholic Church collapses and is no more. Thank Obama for opening the Door Wide and for removing the anti-ballistic missile shield. You won't have to share a prison cell with the paedophile Pope when he gets arrested as the last Pope. Obama will have tears of joy when he see from a distance the Pope in prison but not him because he decided to remove the anti-ballistic missile shield. Ha ha ha the paedoplhile Pope is not going to have the USA as his lover anymore and Satan the Devil the founder of the Roman Catholic Church won't hear the cries of the paedophile Pope because he has more worrying things to do. Ha ha ha ha haaaaa Finally the those people who were killed for refucing to become a Catholic paedophile will laught in their graves now that the Roman Catholic Church will get a taste of their own medicine. Ha ha ha ha ha the Roman Catholic Church is Doom Doom and this time no one will be there to help them. Ha ha ha ha haaaa haha ha ha Doom Doom Doom

I think our President is gutting our military and using this defense shield as the first article to go.

In a way I believe he thinks this is the way to stop terrorists and othe rthugs form spreading around the world.

Another bad decision by a President that is clueless.

Besides Obama actually is short for

Is this a decision to cut military spending, or to redirect the funds into other military programs? As large as our defense budget is, it is not infinite.

I agree that we live in a darker and more dangerous world than most are willing to contemplate, but today our main threat is not from the former Soviet Union, but from Islamist states who might be tempted to launch nukes against "the great Satan" for no other reason than "for the glory of Allah," or from Kim Jong Il, who might use his nukes just to prove he's not a pipsqueak.

This guy is an idiot - not qualified nor fit to be President...

If you start to put all the pieces of his mosaic together, a picture will begin to evolve which will clearly identify his true agenda

You are the one who needs a stronger Meds, dude. You are a USA citizen but you yourself are partly to blame for the over 60,000 USA children that were abuse by 49,000 Catholic paedophiles. You did nothing at all to protect your own USA children from the horny Catholic paedophiles. Maybe you do not care because you might not have any children but you should care because the Catholics have no respect for those USA children who lives in the USA, the Catholics of the Roman Catholic Church thinks that the USA children are very yummy like tasty Pizza or Hot Dogs.
You do not allow the Muslims to threat your own USA country like **** so you declare war on them but on the other hand you do allow the Catholics to sexually abuse your own USA children. Maybe you do not have the Balls to give the Roman Catholic Church paedophiles a taste of their own medicine because you only care about yourself. You do want the Police to help you when someone steals your money or your car isn't it? So, why don't you in return help protect your own USA children from the Catholics paedophiles? Do something about it and declare War on the paedophile Pope and the Catholics paedophiles because when you grow old you will wish you could have done something to protect your own USA children but you did not do anything because you were a coward.
