The GOP can't use the Al-Qaeda boogeyman anymore since Obama's done such a great job killing so many of them, so now they have to go back to the last great evil the US shiat their pants in fear of, which would be the Russians. Pretty soon it'll be the Japanese, Germans, Italians, and if we make it back far enough, the British.

So, ignoring for a moment the obvious, how have we abandoned "Czechoslovakia"? I mean, the two countries are sitting in the middle of a peaceful Europe, both are members of NATO, they're both members of the European Union. How exactly have we abandoned them? Is she worried that Soviet tanks will roll into Prague and we won't do anything about it?

God, these people are just stupid.

Why doesn't Cheney count himself lucky that he isn't on trial for war crimes and just farking disappear to his underground lair and take his brood with him?

There's a reason why the assholes from the last administration weren't invited to the RNC. That's like W.A.S.P. not being invited to the Monster of Rock tour because they were too embarrassing.

i would say its actually the opposite. By agreeing to not put the shield in, tensions in the region will go down, and the Czech republic will benefit from that.

if anything, the argument should be that we're letting down nations like england, since the missle shield was ostensibly supposed to protect western allies from "rogue nations" like iran who were supposedly willing to launch a suicidal chemical ICBM from the ME into a european capital (even though that argument was mind numbling idiotic, and typical of the neo-con inability to understand how the world works.)

Seriously though, Ms. Cheney would have been more in the know had she just listened to some Rockapella. They changed a line in the "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego" theme from:

"Chicago to Czechoslovakia - and back!"

to:

"Chicago and Czech and Slovakia - and back!"

The moral of this story is to listen to Rockapella before one makes a foreign policy statement, lest one errs in knowing exactly what post-Soviet Eastern Europe actually looks like.
 
2012-09-16 05:27:20 PM
Abandoning Czechoslovakia totally makes sense. Just like Romney back during his European trip mentioned the threat from the Soviet Union. They are still fighting the Cold War and their supporters are trapped in a time warp.

Gyrfalcon: He may finally catch Obama flat-footed when he says something like "My esteemed opponent has yet to tell us how he plans to deal with the aggressive expansion of the Japanese Empire," and Obama just stands there and gapes at him.


No, I have a feeling Obama could give a three-minute answer starting with the reason Teddy Roosevelt won the Nobel Peace Prize and ending with the treaty signed on the Missouri.

In 2000 and 2004, Gore and Kerry could only stand there and think about how stupid Bush was, and it left them flat-footed. Obama is too smart and too quick for that. It's why he's gotten as far as he has as quickly as he has.

Lemme tell you a story: I was a kid, and my father had picked up the next day's newspaper at the store. The headline was about the Soviets launching Sputnik before we put anything up into space.

In all serious though, let me answer the major underlying question here.

Psychics need doorbells because their psychic powers are not constantly manifesting themselves, but are brought forth through intense concentration. The few psychics in the world, over centuries, that have been the tales of legend, were usually batshiat insane BECAUSE they could not control when and where their powers presented themselves.

Not that I put great faith in psychics. I just appreciate the fact that, as humans, we know very little about almost everything. Just imagine what the citizens of the planet will think about us in two hundred years.

The Czechs believed it was important to their security. So did the Poles. That's why they feel abandoned by Obama. And the Iranians are getting close to developing ICBMs. This was a serious Obama blunder. It doesn't go away just because Liz Cheney said Czechoslovakia.


This. Why did Obama approve the Iranian nuclear program? Surely a nuclear Iran is a bad idea.

The missile defense program is not specifically meant to protect Eastern Europe. But the Polish and Czech governments were hoping for some US defense money and jobs. That's the only way they have been abandonded.

And also to appease the Russians. Now we learn that Iran may be only 3 years away from developing an ICBM that can even hit America. But never mind that, Liz Cheney said Czechoslovakia.

Brian Ross just said they were a few weeks or days from building it.

"Four to six weeks away, if they made the decision to do it," Ross claimed. "That's some of the intelligence. They haven't made that decision, that's the key."

He was poo-poo'd by Christine Amanpour:

"That is so vastly disparate," Amanpour pointed out. "Other's say it could be a year. So, this is a guessing game that's gone on for years."

"It could be two years," ABC Senior Foreign Affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz agreed.

"That's the latest claim," Ross argued.

Worse than that, I think he misunderestimated it. I heard Iran is bypassing ICBM technology and with 3 weeks will have the ability to teleport high yield hydrogen warheads directly into Nascar events.

You gotta love conservative logic (in the same way that you love explosive diarrhea). Because we haven't already nuked Iran, it's because we think they're harmless. And by the way, we didn't "appease" the Russians, we negotiated with them because they had the valid objection that a missile shield would violate the ABM treaty... that we signed. Only a warmongering GOP shill would wish for a return to the Cold War.

Also, I don't know what shape you think the earth is, but a missile shield in the Czech Republic won't do squat if Iran launches an ICBM at the west coast of America.

Still, go ahead and find any lame excuse to criticize Obama. Have you figured out how to blame the Chicxulub meteor impact on him yet?

Slovakia, I could see being a bit easier to forget; Czech Republic, not so much--some really nice briar pipes come from there, and some nice and cheap pipe tools, and it was where Pilsner beer was invented and where the real Budweiser is made (sold as Budvar in the US thanks to some annoying formerly-American company that hijacked the trademark and now is owned by Belgians).

MinkeyMan: SkinnyHead: Mentat: SkinnyHead: Mentat: SkinnyHead: Looks like the author has no serious rebuttal to her claim the Obama abandoned the Czech Republic.

Again, how did he abandon the Czech Republic?

Scrapped the missile defense system to appease the Russians.

And this threatens the Czech Republic how?

The Czechs believed it was important to their security. So did the Poles. That's why they feel abandoned by Obama. And the Iranians are getting close to developing ICBMs. This was a serious Obama blunder. It doesn't go away just because Liz Cheney said Czechoslovakia.

Liar. The government wanted it because the US promised them a fark load of cash to do it. The Czech people never wanted it. The idea never polled over 40 percent with the public. How do I know this? Because I've lived in the Czech Republic for 20 years. Skinny, pick a different country to lie about, you ignorant scum.


And, no offense to you, seriously, but why the hell should the U.S.A. be building missile defense systems in other countries to begin with? Even if 100% of the Czech people wanted the system, if the purpose is to protect the Czech's from some nebulous threat they feel from their neighbors, let them build their own damn missile defense system, if it's so damn important to them. If they can't live without one, I'm sure they'd find a way to get one.

Now, as for your point, it's clear even the Czech people don't feel abandoned by Obama, since they never wanted it to begin with. Thanks for putting skinny in his place.

Does the Czech Republic really need any help? Isn't it chock full of movie production companies and hipsters drinking fancy beer?

Slovaks maybe need some help, in terms of economic investment... But I don't think they're about to be invaded.

Because that is the OTHER option. Romney is a clear choice if you want to see increased contracts for weapons systems, and that certainly makes folks feel safer, right? Not like there is any sort of race then to test and play with those suckers, right?

There's a difference between fighting the last war and continuing to fight the Napoleonic Wars into the first third of the 20th century because your noblemen look so dashing on horseback.


Also, shouldn't a missile defense system be quite easy to adapt to shooting down drones? They will be bigger and (relatively) slower than a missle, so it would be the same technology but more reliable as the task to shoot them down is easier.

It seems that a number of policy makers either think it's still 1988, or wish it was 1988, because they totally figured out how to win the Cold War after playing Risk for a few years.

Solution: have a separate office called President of the Totally 80s, and let people run for that. They can talk all they want about the Soviets and mutually assured destruction and Twisted Sister using the H-word. No elections, no advertising: the office goes to whoever can solve a Rubik's cube first. 

The POT80S can spend his term visiting countries like Czechoslovakia and East Germany, and take little kids to see E.T.

Forget about Czechoslovakia for a moment. What have we done lately to protect Belgium from the German war machine? Isn't two invasions enough?

A swing and miss by Ms. Cheney. She really should have taken on Obama's complete failure to engage with the Ottoman Empire.

Xcott: It seems that a number of policy makers either think it's still 1988, or wish it was 1988, because they totally figured out how to win the Cold War after playing Risk for a few years.

Solution: have a separate office called President of the Totally 80s, and let people run for that. They can talk all they want about the Soviets and mutually assured destruction and Twisted Sister using the H-word. No elections, no advertising: the office goes to whoever can solve a Rubik's cube first.

quatchi: Soymilk: Why isn't anyone talking about Bohemia? Poor Bohemia.

Agreed. It's a scandal what's going on there.


Indeed. Lots of thunderbolts and lightning. Very very frightening.

xria: Dwight_Yeast: Gyrfalcon: ...except that the next "airstrike" is going to be hypersonic unmanned drones which will be too fast and numerous to be prevented by a missile defense system...

Keep fighting the last war!

There's a difference between fighting the last war and continuing to fight the Napoleonic Wars into the first third of the 20th century because your noblemen look so dashing on horseback.

Also, shouldn't a missile defense system be quite easy to adapt to shooting down drones? They will be bigger and (relatively) slower than a missle, so it would be the same technology but more reliable as the task to shoot them down is easier.


Maybe, but I seem to recall that the anti-missile systems have always had a pretty low accuracy when tested. They might be somewhat better at defending against drones, but as the drones get smarter, I imagine they'll be able to counter any static defenses in increasingly sophisticated ways.

Granted, with today's technology you won't see e.g. a coordinated squadron of drones where a few dive-bomb any ground-based defenses, others engage and shoot down any enemy aircraft that show up, and the rest deliver bombs and/or missiles to the desired target(s), but you can be sure that the military is working on that sort of thing right now.

The bigger problem with anti-missile defense systems, especially for ICBMs, is that they're on the losing end of the arms race equation - it's cheaper and easier to develop a countermeasure to a given missile defense than it is to develop the missile defense itself, and there's no indication that would ever change.

shower_in_my_socks: The GOP shills who shiat all over Fark threads every day are part of the reason their party is dying. They have embraced the dumbest, most out-of-touch morons in their party, and it is now intellectually bankrupt. Not a single good idea has come out of the GOP in many, many years.



Give them some credit. It's hard work masking their pathological greed and sociopath thinking.

Keizer_Ghidorah: Iran's been 3-5 years away from making some devastating superweapon for the last few decades. One of these days it'll be true and we can genocide them with impunity, I'm sure.



And during the Iran/Iraq war, America was arming BOTH countries.

War is big business

rnld: I'm trying to remember the president that went to war to topple a Sunni leader in a shiate majority country that ended up giving Iran more influence. I think his last name started with a B.



Don't even bother, man. Using actual intelligence was never top of the list for the conservatives that barely passed community college classes.

RyogaM: And, no offense to you, seriously, but why the hell should the U.S.A. be building missile defense systems in other countries to begin with?



Because it's a billion dollar handout to defense contractors.

The missile gap was a myth created by those same defense contractors to get America to build up its military to unGodly proportions. And to this day the buildup continues, and any real talk of cutting back on spending and numbers is met with calls of treason.

Shadowknight: You know what sucks n a personal level about this? I have always wanted to go to Russia. I wanted to see the Red Square, see what's left of the palace in St. Petersburg, and just generally see the history of what I always fond to be a fascinating land. I was planning a trip for early next year with a couple friends for Moscow and a few other places.

But with the Republicans trying to ignite the cold war and Putin going all KGB on us, I don't think it's a great idea right now. Freaking politicians have to ruin everything.

/oh, yeah, and the whole "possible nuclear war" thing sucks too.


Don't be afraid of anything. Russia was just accepted into the WTO. They know they will have to start kissing up to western nations to build up all their trade

It's about as probable as China starting some conflict. They just rattle their sabers to stir up nationalism and get more suckers to vote for the ruling party... just like Republicans in America

Mart Laar's beard shaver: And you wonder why American tourists are sometimes shiat on in Central Europe.



Because most tourists there are ignorant conservative hicks from the military

And their knowledge is just as large as yours. Be proud, fellow conservative.

That would make sense if the system being installed was meant to stop Russian nukes. It wasn't, nor would it be terribly useful in such a scenario. The Russians even know this.

RyogaM:

And, no offense to you, seriously, but why the hell should the U.S.A. be building missile defense systems in other countries to begin with? Even if 100% of the Czech people wanted the system, if the purpose is to protect the Czech's from some nebulous threat they feel from their neighbors, let them build their own damn missile defense system, if it's so damn important to them. If they can't live without one, I'm sure they'd find a way to get one.


You have to understand how missile defense works. Don't think of it as Missile Command where you're hitting them as they descend. You have to intercept them way, way earlier, and to do that, you have to be close enough. If you have a boost-phase interceptor, you can't put them in the US.

Yeah-similar things were said in 1912 about the economic consequences of decisions that would move towards war over increasing economic ties. Never underestimate the power of stupidity to trump peace.

That's more what I'm worried about. Even here in the "Melting Pot of the World," people sometimes get beat down for looking different in times of national stress. And, since national stress is something politicians love to stir up to get everyone riled to their cause...

I mean, I know that the governments themselves won't do much and risk an international incident. Random person on the street who has heard all their lives how evil I am? Well, I've learned to not underestimate the stupidity of anyone of any nation.

Cheney's daughter? The lesbo democrat?


Wouldn't it be easier to refer to the Czech Republic and the Slovakian Republic as Czechoslovakia? Kind of how people call the USA "America" and ignore Canada and Mexico?

Please enlighten us.

Gwyrddu: Mart Laar's beard shaver: The ahistorical derp on this thread is amazing. You don't know why the Poles, Czechs, Slovaks feel dumped by Obama? God, my country is screwed. As is apparently, yours.

Which is why 80% of Europeans approve of Obama, more than in the US or any other part of the world (Only the Japanese come close to matching the Europeans). Why don't you tell us why the Poles, Czechs and Slovaks feel dumped [on] by Obama then.

Mart Laar's ball swallower is a well-known shiat-and-run artist, folks. I'll be shocked if you get an answer out of him, but I suspect it has something to do with missile defense.

Jesus, you might want to check the difference in time zones there, slim. And now I'm at work, so I don't have time to respond to your droolings.

You have Part A correct, but you're missing the complete context. And you wonder why American tourists are sometimes shiat on in Central Europe.


So, you didn't have time to respond, but you had time to ignore the basic question of "why" Poles, Czechs etc feel dumped by Obama. Got it.

Anyway, what's the complete context, beard boy?
