    "I don't answer to you." Something along those lines. Wow our descent into a 3rd world country is even faster than I thought it was. There is a link somewhere but I don't have time right now.

    LMAO, nobody has any respect for Obama. World leaders "tolerate" his trips and "tune out" his lectures. He draws a line in the sand, they cross it, he draws a new line, they cross it...he is either stupid for issuing the ultimatum or has no balz for not backing up his stupid rhetoric. He is making Jimmy Carter look like Benjamin Franklin.

    Ecuador gave assylum to Julian Assange. What did you expect - them to just hand over Snowden?

    im guessing you guys prefer the kind of lines drawn in the sand that costs thousands of American lives and trillions of dollars spent..

    why should Russia or Equador's leaders fear the US in this situation?

    US-Ecuador relations have been strained for a long time. Look at how many American tuna boats they have seized over the years.

    The president of Ecuador is/was a colleague of Chavez. Along with Bolivia and Cuba, you could could say US relations arent the best.

    It doesn't matter who it is...unless it is perhaps Great Britain, none of these countries give a damn about pleasing Obama. He's a frickin lightweight and they know it. All talk and it is all bull $hit. Those of you wearing Obama "knee pads" know it too. You sense it if you have any sense. Why you continue to defend this clown...who knows? Habit, I guess?

    I'm a bit lost here. Is the underlying premise supposed to be that if another nation disregards a request from the US government that it makes the US a third world nation in terms of geopolitical politics?

    Is this the new accepted standard of rating national power? Doesn't this also make China, Russia and several European nations also "3rd world countries"?

    Yes. Before 2008, every sovereign nation in the world has kowtowed to every request of the US without exception.

    Not every, but at least some. Now, countries frankly don't give a damn about US requests unless we are sending them a check that month. Our motto has gone from "Peace through Strength" to "We apologize".

    Wait until Hussein rises from the grave to hear this. If my intel is right, we are talking a zombie of mass destruction here.

    No, your boy needs to quit playing "tough guy" by drawing lines then wussing out. He just needs to shut his mouth when it comes to stuff like Syria. If he's going to say it, back it up.

    The only people who should fear the U.S. are U.S. citizens (and anyone who communicates with them electronically).

    Except he's not. They have not given him asylum yet. There's about $5B in tariffs that are at play. There have been a lot of back channel reapproachment.

    No there was a $23M lesser tariff easement that they voluntary gave up. Congress was not going to renew it anyway. So they made an empty symbolic gesture to make themselves appear tough. The fact that they still have not given him asylum is telling. They're also having second thoughts about Assange.

    Apparantly he told El Bozo (my spanish play...lol) "We don't want your stinkin' money." Something to that affect. At least that's what was reported as of this morning.
