So why are China and Russia saying "Not so fast" Mr. Bush....
With regard to imposing potent UN sanctions on the newest kid walking the Nuclear Block....

The Child-king still blusters, huffs 'n Puffs and walks tall with that manly jaunt that Chris Matthews so admires, but when reality comes rushing in on the US, we really can't do anything about North Korea...

So why is it that a country supposedly with the strongest economy in the world, unprecedented military might and a cowboy for president can't get its way in the UN...

Perhaps it is because of all the caustic chatter emanating from US Ambassador "I am the Walrus" Bolton... Or could it be that delegates to the UN tune into talk radio and hear the likes of Limbaugh, Hannity and Michael Savage mocking everyone who doesn't happen to be American...

(Why oh why do they hate us so....)

Or perhaps it is because Russia has a huge amount of oil, nuclear weapons and a steely eyed leader who knows when to fold and knows when to hold 'em.... Puttin must watch Celebrity Poker on Cable...

Or could it be that China is holding so much US paper that maybe we might be asked to do a favor, you know what I mean, by Chinese president Hu Jintao, Badda Bing... Faster than you can say Tony Soprano, we are beholden to the master Artists of War...

Or maybe it is simply the crash and burn foreign policy put into practice by the gang that couldn't shoot straight...

You know what Bush's America has become...

An impotent giant with little to no leverage when it comes to International Relations...

Bluster all you want Georgie, but when push comes to shove, one has to wonder who will be doing the pushing and who will be the pushie...

1. The neutering of the United States, courtesy of gwb. Any capital or
credibility that we may have brought to the international stage is long gone.

2. When the chimp opens his mouth..........
All it does now is reduce our standing even further.....

The goodwill of the world has been squandered by this clown.....

And all his posturing....

It will take decades to repair, if indeed it is reparable.......
