Invasions....

What is wrong with what the Obamessiah said about the recent Russian invasion as reported in Reuters...
Democrat Barack Obama scolded Russia again on Wednesday for invading another country’s sovereign territory while adding a new twist: the United States, he said, should set a better example on that front, too.

The Illinois senator’s opposition to the Iraq war, which his comment clearly referenced, is well known. But this was the first time the Democratic presidential candidate has made a comparison between the U.S. invasion of Iraq and Russia’s recent military activity in Georgia.
The problem of what this youngster bloviates about is that there is a major difference between invading a country that was inarguable a risk to their neighbors and was run by a madman and a country, such as the former Soviet Republic of Georgia, that has a democratically elected government and was being considered for inclusion in NATO.

So, what is Obama arguing about here? That the US is as evil as Russia? Or that the US should never be involved in any conflict irrespective of the need to do so so as to 'lead' the world in our pacifism?

Obama is a one dimensional candidate. A fellow, that as a state senator was opposed to the war in Iraq. A position with little portfolio since he was neither afforded the information that Congress had to consider and never had to go on record with a vote in those days.

Obama is an empty suit.
