Problem with Republicans, you want the United States to play a leading role in every little crisis around the world regardless of American lives or the cost. In case you haven't noticed, that plan isn't working out too well.
what international community,? US and everyone else against US. Did you see France on fire, there is O'bama's only fry end.

Todd is one of yours LOL
Former congressman Todd Akin (R-M0.) said Thursday that he used a poor choice of words in 2012 when he suggested "legitimate rape" rarely causes pregnancy, but stood by his argument, asserting that if he should have used slightly different wording.
Akin, as he has done in several media interviews in recent week, argued that that his words were deliberately distorted.
"This is something that was intentionally misunderstood and twisted for political purposes," he said.
Akin is back in the spotlight promoting his new book,“Firing Back: Taking on the Party Bosses and Media Elite to Protect Our Faith and Freedom." Akin writes that he regrets apologizing for his "legitimate rape" comment in a television commercial.
————
Two years after he lost his 2012 Senate campaign, former Missouri Republican congressman Todd Akin still can't stop talking about rape.
Appearing on MSNBC's "The Daily Rundown" on Thursday, Akin sought yet again to explain the infamous comments about rape that roiled his bid to oust Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.). In a 2012 interview, Akin said, "If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."
Akin said that while he "misspoke some words," Democrats and establishment Republicans unfairly took him out of context ahead of the Democratic National Convention. He compared the attacks against him to those against Hillary Clinton, who was criticized recently for defending an accused rapist as an attorney in the 1970s.
"Well, here, let me just try to give you an explanation. Legitimate rape is a law enforcement term and it's abbreviation for legitimate case of rape," Akin said. He added, "If I had been choosing my words better, I should have said legitimate case of rape. And I have acknowledged that it is a poor choice of words."
"I never said that a woman can't get pregnant who is raped," he said. "I was simply talking about the fact that stress affects the statistics of people becoming pregnant."
After stating that he was "not presenting myself as a doctor," Akin proceeded to cite six "recent studies" he claimed backed up his assertion as to why stress has an impact on pregnancy.
Asked twice whether he believed abortion should be legal for someone who has been raped, Akin demurred.
“Should the child conceived in rape have the same right to life as the child conceived in love?” he said, adding later, "I think what doctors should do is try and save life."
Akin also claimed that a "number of people" on his campaign had been "conceived by rape."
The former Missouri Republican is back in the news, to the dismay of establishment Republicans, after offering a hearty defense of his comments in a new book,“Firing Back: Taking on the Party Bosses and Media Elite to Protect Our Faith and Freedom."
Save a life save the world. Right?

Limbaugh said he hopes Obama fails to ' fundamentally transform our country' int a third world country. Obama hasn't succeeded,but he has gotten very far in his quest to destroy our country as founded. Obama instituted ObamaKare,defeated DOMA,pushed DACA,used the IRS to disenfranchise United States citizens,used his anti-jobs agenda to put millions out of work,doubled the number of people on welfare, and doubled the number of people on other government programs,used Fast and Furious to supply weapons to the worst drug lords in Mexico that have killed thousands of people with Obama weapons,thus paving the death trail from Central America through Mexico,Obama has used his agenda to cause turmoil throughout the world and turned his back on our strongest allies. Obama lied about Benghazi,and caused four deaths and three dozen injuries, all to push his agenda. No he hasn't succeeded in 'fundamentally transforming our country' or turning our country int a third world country,but he has made it worst. Obama hasn't succeeded in destroying The Constitution,but he certainly has done his share in stomping it into the ground.

Why the GOP Can’t Take a Joke
Conservatives’ inability to offer up a little LOL proves they’re still the same rigid right they’ve always been— and they’re afraid at being laughed at themselves.
Comedian Frank Coniff, however, best known as “TV’s Frank” from Mystery Science Theater, saidt:“The best comedy is always on the side of the underdog, and conservatives are on the side the powerful.” Comedian/writer Leighann Lord echoed Frank’s sentiments:“Comedy is at its best when it gives voice to the underdog having the courage to say out loud what people are thinking.”
Jason Sattler, the man behind the popular satirical Twitter account “@LOLGOP,” which mocks Republicans, said,“Conservatives focus on being funny almost exclusively to people who agree with them.” He believes they won’t take the chance of doing comedy and publicly failing, adding conservatives,“usually prefer failing in private—like at bathroom stalls in an international airport, for instance.”

There's NO mention of the video in the indictment against the token terrorist Obama's parading around.
Why would it imbecile? The indictment only deals with the crime itself and not the motivation that was behind it. But it seems that the video was the reason. Abu Khattala told other Libyans in private conversations during the night of the attack that he was moved to attack the diplomatic mission to take revenge for an insult to Islam in an American-made online video.

Pay attention. Roxy claimed that U.N. agreements mean absolutely nothing unless they are ratified. That was the subject.
I thought you were being obtuse--I keep thinking you must be playing. However, someone else did respond to you. Just because the US approved of the UN DOES NOT mean we are bound to approve of everything that the UN proposes. Each "treaty" must be approved by the Senate.

I will attempt to be more patient with you and not assume you are deliberately missing what is being stated.

INTERFAX was the first to report a crashed plane so yeah the very first reports came from them then Reuters begin it's reporting and the others followed as time passed. The 23 US citizen's that was reported came from the Malaysian Airline itself which in a public statement claimed that 23 US passports were used by passengers on that flight. As it turned out only 1 dual citizenship passenger was identified who was a young man with both US and Dutch citizenship. Several Dutch citizens were killed in that flight.

This week, President Obama's $3.7 billion request to deal with the border crisis stalled as lawmakers introduced a bill that purportedly aims to help young unaccompanied immigrants but actually just makes it easier to quickly deport them -- a measure Rep. Luis Gutierrez, a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, dismissed as "the deportation-only agenda dressed up in sheep's clothing." .

Hey stupid, then I guess you're saying that the AP, ABC, NBC, CBS and Reuters all get their news from FOX, eh? Fox never said there were 23 dead Americans . They said there are unconfirmed reports saying 23 Americans died. You are extremely stupid, advertise it, and are further hampered because you obviously do not understand the spoken or written word. Talk about disadvantaged.
