So, as another week begins and Snowden has been spirited of to Russia (we think), Syria continues unabated, Eygpt is about to sink into another rebellion, and Hong Kong did not honor our extriadition request. The white house and John Kerry have responded:

- We are deeply troubled
- We are very concerned
- We are very upset
- This could affect future relationships
- We plan on issuing a stern response
- We had hoped it would have turned out differntly
- The current situation is upsetting

And my personal favorite: Stop, or I will say Stop again...
Am I the only one who thinks the current administartion has made the U.S. seem about as threatening as a smoke bomb and a sparkler? Russia continues to embarrass us, China has no qualms if the U.S. is "mad" at them. The bottom line folks is the rest of the world sees us as vunerable and all talk. John Kerry has been running amuck and pledging support or lack thereof prior to white house sanctioning which ironically has led the white house to "distance" themselves from some of Kerry's comments. All we need now is the shriner clown cars and off we go. What happened to the "superpower" we were once regarded as? One word: Democrats. obama went from whispering to Putin "I will have more flexibility once I am re-elected" to asking Russia to stop supplying arms to the Assad regime and oh by the way "Have you seen Mr. Snowden?" We are no longer regarded as a force to be reckoned with. The rest of the world to include some of our allies thinks we are all talk and you know what, for the most part they are right. Example, obama stated that if chemical weapons were used a "red line" would be crossed. So, chemical weapons were used and we take six months after to once again talk and to date still have not acted. At the end of the day I would rather be considered as a bully that has no qualms whipping your @@s if you step out of line as oppossed to the "time out" to discuss the negitive impact your behavior has on the "group". I would at least like to revert to "Speak Softly but Carry a Big Stick". As it stands right now we are known for "being upset" but not doing anything tangible about it. I am not a war monger, I spent a good portion of my life serving this great country and you know what? It was nice to be on the "winning" team, part of a kick @@s and take names, and make no doubt in your mind that the U.S. is the last country you want to mess with. Something has to give, at the very least if we say we are going to do something if a "red line" is crossed; then do it! DO it hard, do it swiftly, and remind the rest of the world that you just dont mess with the U.S.

All, it sounds like we are really mad now and plan on issuing a "harsh" statement. Really? Obama has zero respect from the rest or the WORLD! The only people that "like us" are those receiving aid from the U.S. and even in that instance is not always the case. We have three more years of this inept administrations attempt at foreign policy. Pretty scary if you ask me...

'White House spokesman Jay Carney, in unusually harsh language, said China had "unquestionably" damaged its relationship with Washington."

"We consider the attempts to accuse Russia of violation of U.S. laws and even some sort of conspiracy, which on top of all that are accompanied by threats, as absolutely ungrounded and unacceptable," Lavrov said."

"Members of Congress so far have focused their anger on China and Russia, not on Obama's inability to get either country to abide by U.S. demands. However, Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said in an interview with CNN on Monday that he was starting to wonder why the president hasn't been "more forceful in dealing with foreign leaders."
