That's all fine Treadstone. I guess as you in the USA look inwards after the debacles of Iraq and Afghanistan, I shouldn't be surprised that you take constructive advice from someone who has admired the USA from afar for many many years badly.
It's absolutely your right to ignore my comments, though I think on a world wide message board, I have as much right as you do to express my views, don't you think, "fella" ?
You consistently refer to your President as a "pretender in chief". Why do you consider him a "pretender" ? Did he steal an election ? Did the majority of Americans not prefer him over Mitt Romney and John McCain ? Do you not view him as your President and Commander in Chief ? If not, who DO you consider your President ?
I agree than an opposition party absolutely needs to hold the governing party to account and to stress-test every piece of legislation and every appointment proposed. But this constructive attempt to ensure laws are fit for purpose seems to me to have devolved into outright obstructionism. And I'm not alone. The Economist for one, a well respected, free market and right of centre publication has written at length about Republican policy being bad for America and by extension, bad for the rest of the world.
It's your right to support politicians who spend potentially 16 years engaged in guerrilla warfare against it's own government and somehow view no progress on your many problems as somehow a success. I guess the name conservative by very definition connotes fear and suspicion of change.
And no, I'm not from Russia or Iran or Syria. Lol. I've made no secret of the fact I'm from the United Kingdom - cue limey, bad teeth, Islamic takeover, Euro-weenie insults. I'll be amazed if you can control yourself Treadstone.
