1. Does ANYONE in obamas admn. know how to speak clearly & not
have2explain later ,   what they meant?????   (08.09.09)
2. US commitment to Israel's safety should be.......
Islam&Judaism= ,   Oil&Water!   (08.09.09)
that Jordan is Palestine because Jews and Muslims can NOT live together!
3. Trust Mrs. Clinton and 0-BUM-a as she trusts her husband, NO
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (08.09.09)
o-BUM-a is the first arab president of the US and no friend of Israel or any Jew. He is a traitor to the people of the US and Clinton kneels in front of him and says, "Yes Master."
4. #1 - ummm....compared to the last US president...
Andy ,   ramat hasharon   (08.09.09)
who was too stupid to put together a coherent English sentence on any given occasion, yes, they do. They are a hell of a lot smarter then "Dubya" and his neo-nincompoops and their policies are better accross the board as well. When W took office, the US was respected. Now they are laughed at. In 8 short years he managed to f that all up. Get used to it: Obama is in for 2 terms, then Hillary for 2 more starting in 2017. They inherited disasters on all fronts - and they are slowing digging the US out.

THE US IS WORKING FROM A POSITION OF FRIENDSHIP WITH ISRAEL Israel is full of idiots who will believe most bullshit thats fed to them but `i think most people can see now there is no US friendhsip with Israel. Relations have gradually been getting worse since the end of the cold war when we lost our usefulness to the US as they no longer needed a strong ally in a Soviet dominated region. The difference is before these thawing of relations were going drip drip drip now its become a flood. The US though is no friend of Israel only individuals Americans are. WE DO NOT INTEND TO ACCEPT NUCLEAR WEAPONS BY IRAN WE THINK THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE. Its only going to be unacceptable as long as diplomacy will stop it happening. If diplomacy fails and it comes down to military action or accepting Iran will get nukes they will accept Iran having nukes. Assuming the prophet Obama did do a deal US gives Iran all kinds of presents and in exchange they agree to stop developing nukes whats to stop them taking the rewards and later covertly develping nukes. Thats whst North Korea did he promised Bill Clinton he would end his nuclear program if the US gave him all kinds of electricty generating technology which they got and later Kim Jong Il breaks that promise he made. Breaking treaties and promises is alot easier than making them. A COMMITMENT BY THE UNITED STATES TO THE SECURITY OF ISRAEL IS ABSOLUTELY IMPERATIVE AND NON - NEGOTIABLE I doubt Obama would agree with a statement like that. Nothing would please him more than to see Israel destroyed and then its land handed over to the arabs. He would probably declare it a global day of celebration phone the country that managed to destroy Israel and wish them congratulations. The current regime in the US cannot be trusted on anything and we should not fall for any of their lies.
6. #2 - Dream on....
Andy ,   ramat hasharon   (08.09.09)
there will be a compromise solution that does not include Jordan as Palestine. Of course it will take a while, as the Palestinians get real. But happen it will.
7. #4: Slowing digging us out?
Steve   (08.09.09)
Speak for yourself. Maybe Obama is slowly digging you out. He's not digging me or the US out. Obama is digging a deep pit. One can only hope he falls into his own pit. As to your other point about George W. Bush, I agree. He was a disaster but make no mistake about it. So is Mr. Obama a disaster, and then some.
8. As usual, giving in to Israel lobby
Chanalau, Tova ,   London, UK   (08.09.09)
No matter what party, what colour the president. Its always Jewish pressure, Jewish influence that counts in Washington. Everything else such as justice, the world economy, US other allies, foreign relations ... forget it! Its ' little Isreal' that counts.
9. #6: there will be NO compromise only civil war!
choose a side.   (08.09.09)
10. Jordan was/is/and always will be Palestine.
Jordan is a myth.   (08.09.09)
11. THIS IDIOT MUST BE A TOTAL IMBECILLE !!!.
ORAO STRANKA. ,   TSARIGRAD U SRBIA.   (08.09.09)
"We do not intend to accept nuclear weapons by Iran. "If they believed that this would give them a more secure position, a greater capacity to influence events, to intimidate their neighbors, to expand the reach of their ideology, they were mistaken," she continued. "But for the sake of argument, and for the sake of their calculus, if that is among their objectives, they need to think again, because they will render their position less secure, they will trigger an arms race in the region and they will certainly put greater pressure on the United States to extend a defense umbrella in order to hem in and contain them. WITH NUCES IRAN CAN GO TO CONVENTIONAL WAR AGAINST ISRAEL AND THE WHOLE MIDDLE EAST. DEFENSE UMBRELLA ??? WHAT A SECURITY WILL THAT POSE, AGAINST IRANS INTENTION TO GO TO CONVENTIONAL WAR AGAINST ISRAEL, WHEN IRAN HAS DEVELOPED ITS OWN DEFENSE UMBRELLA ??? CAN IRAN DEVELOPE BOTH MISSILES AND NUCES, THEY SURELY CAN DEVELOPE ANTIBALLISTIC MISSILES ALSO. THE US LEADERS ARE A BUNCH OF IDIOTS, WHOS POLICY WILL LEAD TO CONVENTIONAL WAR. WITHOUT NUCES IRAN WOULD NOT DARE A CONVENTIONAL ATTACK AGAINS THE ISRAEL AND THE MIDDLE EAST. IRAN DO NOT GIVE A SHIT IF THE ARABS DEVELOPE NUCES AND A DEFENSE UMBRELLA. IT IS ISRAEL WHO IS IRANS TARGET, AND SURELY THE ARABS WILL NOT GO TO WAR AGAINST IRAN TO PROTECT ISRAEL WITH NUCES. Orao.
12. Clinton chosen to fail by Obama
Bernard Ross ,   St anns bay, jamaica   (08.09.09)
Clinton is a clueless diplomat who is seen to be an Obama puppet. she is a fish out of water. She was chosen for this position so that she would not be a problem in the next election. Obviously she did not see this coming but Obama must be laughing as she will never be a contender again.
13. Nukes
Mike ,   Liverpool   (08.09.09)
I believe Iran is in dire need of nukes as a deterrent to the only country in ME that has them. The U.S. and Britain are not falling for the same WMD rubbish and the story about the bloke who lives in a cave again. Our troops will be out of the region soon because the west will wake up to these pointless wars not in our interest.
14. Nukes Won't Insure Irans Safety
Neal Rothner   (08.09.09)
"Nukes may not insure Iran's security" But NO NUKES will insure everyone elses security. Neal The Hasmonean
15. #13.mike..YOU ARE LOST IN A CAVE WITH ONLY A POT OF TEA !
ABRAHAM ben JACOB ,   CANADA   (08.13.09)
MIKE, ENGLAND.....MIKE ---YOU BETTER WAKE UP ! MY RESPONSE TO MIKE'S STATEMENT " STATING THAT "Our troops will be out of the region soon because the west will wake up to these pointless wars not in our interest. " WHO DO YOU BLAME FOR THE BRITISH WARS AND CONFLICTS IN THE FALKLANDS, IRELAND, PAKISTAN, INDIA, ARABIA, AND THE MID-EAST AND MANY OTHERS ? WHAT A NERVE YOU HAVE MIKE ! YOUR COUNTRY BRITAIN HAS NEVER REALLY CEASED TO GET INTO MANY "POINTLESS WARS "....... IN FACT BRITAIN, FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS HAS MADE IT A POINT YO GO OUT OF IT'S WAY TO MEDDLE IN OTHER COUNTRIES AFFAIRS AND TO INSTIGATE MANY WARS. HERE IS MIKES ULTIMATE DISPLAY OF AUDACITY AND NERVE....HE BELIEVES THAT ...... " Iran is in dire need of nukes as a deterrent to the only country in ME that has them. ".......... IN DIRE NEED MIKE ? IF IRAN DID NOT THREATEN IT'S NEIGHBORS LOUDLY AND CLEARLY AS IT DID MANY TIMES THERE WOULD BE NO "DIRE NEED" AS YOU SAY FOR IRAN NUKES. " MIKE STATES THAT "The U.S. and Britain are not falling for the same WMD rubbish and the story about the bloke who lives in a cave again.' THE BRITS AND THE U.S. MADE THIS DECISION OF THEIR OWN CHOICE , OR DID YOU FORGET ? THE BRITS AND U.S DECIDED TO BECOME INVOLVED WILLINGLY AND SPEEDILY IN IRAQ . MIKE STATES THAT ......... " these pointless wars not in our interest. "......... THEN MIKE, YOU SHOULD VOTE FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO MAKE THE POLICY DECISIONS YOU FAVOR AND STOP YOUR WHINING.
