to some of our closest allies in the world.
The message is clear. If you are a dictator, thug, or all around punk like Putin, Oretega, Castro, Chavez, or Ahmandinejad, the United States is on your side and willing to abandon friends and put American interests secondary to those of the rest of the world.
If you've been an ally of the United States in the past, like the UK, or Eastern Europe, then you get the set of CDs that won't work in your system, copies of the Chosen One's speeches and oh yeah, forget getting any protection or support from the United States - you're on your own.
For those of you in Europe who were thrilled to have an American President who was well spoken and non confrontational, how's that hope and change workin' out for ya?
