How can you stop playing World Police when
no one else is either stupid enough or wealthy enough to do so?
Let's face it, few if any European or Middle East countries even want to be involved for ANY reason. The UN is the most constipated, worthless, impotent organization that ever sucked the public teat.
I can't blame anyone for NOT participating. However, when you don't participate or provide support; IMHO you lose your right to criticize forever. Now I'm off to bake some bread you arent getting.
BTW, I don't fully support or condone what the US has done even though I live here. I DO have to live with the results however.
As far as the spying is concerned, you can't single out the USA when ALL of your various countries alphabet agencies are all involved (you just don't have your own Snowden (Yet).
The damage was done by others when they spied illegally and unconstitutionally, all Snowden did was let people know for sure instead of guessing.
Nixon was a little different because we do not expect that our President is a damned burglar, directly running a group of criminals. There could have been no plausible excuse for his actions.
Unfortunately, Oblama is just as big a crook as Nixon but he has an excuse that all governments can hide their dirty tricks behind, "National Security"!
The Liberal media is as guilty as Oblama is, one for rigging all media coverage and next for failing to report what he has done with same fervor they would use against Bush or some other GOP politician.
