Barack Carter Obama

There are 8 comments on the news.yahoo.com story from May 21, 2008, titled Barack Carter Obama . In it, news.yahoo.com reports that:

Mideast: He views Iran's nuclear threat as "tiny." He'd meet with its leader, who is pledged to Israel's destruction. His adviser wants Israel to disarm. Clearly, Barack Obama is running for Jimmy Carter's second term.

His latest foray into dangerous naivete came while campaigning Sunday in Pendleton, Ore. He told the assembled multitude: "Iran? Cuba? Venezuela? -- these countries are tiny compared to the Soviet Union. They don't pose a threat to us the way the Soviet Union posed a threat to us."

his foreign policy seems to be best summed up as: "let's all bend over and enjoy this--they will all like us better afterwards."

This isn't naive, this is true. These countries are not as powerful as the old Soviet Union.

The issue is not having talks with the enemy. It's mostly about what is going to be said during these talks. Maybe he SHOULD hear them out, them let Iran know that if they get out of line, we will bombed their a**.

What are we going to bomb them with?
Obama said he wants to cut the military weapon program.

WRONG! The Soviet Union was not run by a dictator. It was run by a politburo. A renegade dictator is much more dangerous, despite not having the power of a Soviet Union.

Obama is scary in his naivete. His views come from anti-american college professors.

Wrong! The Soviet Union was all about Joseph Stalin, the Man of Steel. The USSR lived by his will, and though he died in 1953 his legacy lived on for many years. Nikita Khrushchev, "the Butcher of the Ukraine", was his right hand man, a carbon of Stalin.

When the last breath of Stalinís will finally dissipated the USSR ceased to be. It had nothing to do with Reagan and everything to do with Stalinís associates finally all dying.

The USSR was owned by the greatest single dictator of the post-modern age. Your post is incredibly erroneous.
