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.

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.

Mentat: And this threatens the Czech Republic how?


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.)

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.

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?

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.

"Those dumb sons-of-biatches didn't know 'smart' phones cause brain cancer? People even published stories supporting this basic scientific knowledge! They deserved to live in the dark ages of 1990 to 2020."

Dwight_Yeast: cameroncrazy1984: How would a missile defense system help stave off a ground invasion?

Better than their calvary did against the German Panzers in 1939.

/probably expect Russian airstrikes before an invasion


...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!

Coco LaFemme: 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.


I'm fine with that, as long as they scale back the war technology accordingly.

Smelly McUgly: Look at this: Liz Cheney is a gay and a woman, and yet the Fark Libtards (tm) show up to shout her down. Looks more like Obama's War Against Women and Gays, courtesy of the Libby Libby Lib Libs that are hypocritical about intolerance and free speech.

/Am I doing it right?


Considering that Liz is not gay, Mary Cheney is, I'm gonna have to say "no, you're not doing it right."

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.

Oh, you silly. Because obviously the only way that any European country can possibly avoid being immediately invaded and turned to communism anarcho-capitalism by the Soviets Russians is if the US is constantly swinging its huge dick in the way.

Paris1127: Also, why would a psychic need a doorbell? Wouldn't he/she know when someone's at the door?


I was going to ask exactly that question.

When I was a teenager, I saw posters for a "psychic fair" at the Cow Palace in San Francisco, and I wondered "why do they need to advertise? If you don't know already, it's not for you!"
