They do not resent or resist America’s democratic influence in the world


Russian puppety prez Medvedev recognizes South Ossetia and Abkhazia as independent sovereign nations. Hurrah! This blog likewise recognizes the independence of Chechnya, North Ossetia, Dagestan and, oh, let’s say Tatarstan, ‘cause why not.

Speaking of independent sovereign nations, the “specific deadline” Maliki is supposedly insisting upon would be “conditions-based.” Who gets to decide if conditions are right? A joint American-Iraqi ministerial group. In other words, the US gets to veto withdrawal.

John McCain told the American Legion annual convention today: “when people in the oppressed nations of the world need support, and solidarity, and hope, they look to America. When they talk about our country, it is not with distrust or disdain, but with respect and affection. They do not resent or resist America’s democratic influence in the world -- they thank God for it.” Um, gosh, I don’t really... know... what to say about that particular, ah, view of the world. I guess he learned all about that respect and affection and stuff in Vietnam.
