Cain is definitely right on this issue, and Ron Paul is as wrong as he can be:


Rep. Ron Paul of Texas says it would be wrong for the United States to take active stands in the region. He says it's up to each country to determine its future.

Paul doesn't seem to grasp that the United States has interests that go beyond our borders, and that when one of these states becomes part of the caliphate, it increases the threat to us.

I don't think people give Cain enough credit on foreign policy, common sense is foreign to people today.

To obama, he is on the right side, because he is on the muslim side. The ONLY comment coming from the muslim in the white house is to tell th Christians to show restraint while they are being slaughtered.

Unfortunately, while Cain has the right instincts, he does have some serious blind spots on foreign policy. Not knowing that China is a nuclear power, for example, indicates that he hasn't really thought about it, since that's a no-brainer.

Obama's support for Islam doesn't come from being a Muslim. Any religion would get in the way of his obsessive self-worship. He supports anti-American regimes because he identifies with their anti-Americanism, not their religious worship. Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro are not Muslims, nor are the Chinese, but he has kowtowed to them as well.

He likes any system where the leader has absolute unquestioned power.

True, but my point is that he will approach issues with a commodity that is almost extinct among our current leadership, common sense.

Cain didn't go far enough; O Blah Blah is wrong on so many things it would be better to start a list of what he does well, I'll start:

1. Deflect blame
2. Promote class warfare
3 Promote race baiting

Please feel free to add to my list.:cool:

All true, but his sympathies are with the muslims. His support for the arab atrocities clearly come from anti Christian, pro muslim leanings.

His INSTINCTS seem to be correct, but his depth of knowledge do leave a bit to be desired. Still has my vote though.

No argument.

I'll probably vote for him, but I'd be a lot happier if he'd spent some time boning up on the global challenges to the US. Obama has demonstrated the problems that come with on the job training.

Exactly what I've been saying. That's the main reason I lean towards Newt.
Someone fresh from outside the political world sounds great, but at the
same time this isn't a job that you want someone having a big learning
curve in after he gets there. Newt has been out of the loop for sometime,
but he brings with him past diplomatic inside experience to build on. I'd like
to see Newt with Cain as VP. Let Cain get 4-8 yrs in on the inside, then he'd
make a good president.

Cain will never run as a VP. He's got quite an ego on him. To him it would be second position and he can't reconcile that with the word "boss". It's one of the failings of people that have most of their experience in the business world instad of politics.

Time will prove Cain right on this, although it is the opposite from what all the popular girls in the MSM are saying.

It's an interesting trainwreck for the Dems; they have laid full claim to all credit for supporting the Arab Spring (To the bemused 'He said whuuuut?' of every Arab interviewed about Obama in the streets while it was happening). But at the same time, the Bush administration was really responsible for sheltering and training a large number of exiles in a plan to 'foster democracy and promote radical reform' without the knowledge of the Egyptians in particular and the existing Arab governments in general. The Bush plan has proved to have possibly been less than a brilliant idea, and as wildly overoptimistice about Muslim readiness to embrace Western democracy as our Afghanistan adventure has been. Yet, the Democrats have already claimed this child as their own to the total exclusion of the 'Previous administration,' so they own the resultant pan-Islamic clusterfuck as thoroughly as if it all really had been their own plan from inception.

Who do you support when it's one muslim group versus another muslim group, and neither are sufis? Do
you support this guy's atrocities, or this other guy's atrocities?

The enemy of my enemy is my friend. At their core, all muzlims are the enemy. They are taught that from birth. :cool:

Once one clan defeats another, they'll refocus their hatred on the West.
