Thursday Afternoon Cigar

We burned a Romeo Y Julieta today as we relished in the TOTAL embarrassment of Obama's Berlin "Citizen of the World" speech.

As we speak, cars in Boston and factories in Beijing are melting the ice caps in the Arctic, shrinking coastlines in the Atlantic, and bringing drought to farms from Kansas to Kenya.

Poorly secured nuclear material in the former Soviet Union or secrets from a scientist in Pakistan could help build a bomb that detonates in Paris. The poppies in Afghanistan come to Berlin in the form of heroin. The poverty and violence in Somalia breeds the terror of tomorrow. The genocide in Darfur shames the conscience of us all.

In this new world, such dangerous currents have swept along faster than our efforts to contain them. And that is why we cannot afford to be divided. No one nation, no matter how large or powerful, can defeat such challenges alone.

What a joke.

Two corrections, your Messiah:

1) Karl's stogies are doing far worse to the ice caps than any Boston Prius, and
2) There is still one nation that CAN defeat the challenges of the day. If you were paying attention, this nation has put far more effort into RESTRAINING its forces than in fighting the enemy. Allah help the enemies that face our FULL wrath.
