Why would the representatives of a nation walk out on the speech of the leader of a foreign nation they believe is:
A. actively trying to destroy one of their allies
B. may have had a part in funding terrorist organizations
C. may have provided fighters and/or weapons to the enemy combatants over the past 8 or 9 years
, at a global summit of an organisation known as the UNITED NATIONS?
How bad is the U.S. trying to make itself look? Oh sure, let's just poo poo anything this guy says, even though he is practically an enemy to our
Nice job people. Give this guy a reason to be insulted, and allow us to gladly remain ignorant of what someone who hates you and might have the
capability to act out on that hate, might have to say.
I'm reminded of the recent debate where Ron Paul was booed for speaking the words of Osama Bin Laden. The man clearly stated why the attacks of 911
happened, but awwww hell with it, we don't want to hear it.
I wanted to say that America's representatives are morons who clearly don't actually represent the thoughts and viewpoints of it's citizens, but
I'd be wrong. We really do present ourselves as pompous ***holes who have let our nationalism promote an incredible arrogance.
