Russia is Right

Russia is right to restrict certain NGOs. The NGOs are quite predictable and can be counted beat up Israel and ignore massive abuses in far left and Muslim states. In truth the NGOs don't add much. The same stories are in the far left press. The NGOs are pretty much jobs programs for lefties.

The agencies have zero integrity.

In re: your comments over at another blog:

"When Cheney became eligible for the draft, during the Vietnam War, he applied for and received five draft deferments. In 1989, The Washington Post writer George C. Wilson interviewed Cheney as the next Secretary of Defense; when asked about his deferments, Cheney reportedly said, "I had other priorities in the '60s than military service".[21] Cheney testified during his confirmation hearings in 1989 that he received deferments to finish a college career that lasted six years rather than four, owing to sub-par academic performance and the need to work to pay for his education. Initially, he was not called up because the Selective Service System was only taking older men. When he became eligible for the draft, he applied for four deferments in sequence. He applied for his fifth exemption on January 19, 1966."

The deferments were legal. As far as academic performance we still can't see Obamas grades or syllabus.

As the activity in question was legal you have no point.

As for my own record I failed the physical due to reconstructive knee surgery.

The issue is not the legality of Cheney's deferments. The issue is that you were flat-out wrong when you wrote, "Last we checked at the time we had a voluntary military enlistment. Cheney was under no special obligation to enlist."

It was not a period of voluntary enlistment; the draft was going full-force.

Splitting hairs cumwad. The deferments were legal and Cheney remains quite popular with actual serviceman, unlike Obama.

Apparently the boy wonder thinks the army employs zombies. What sort of imbecile pronounces Corpsman as Corpse Man.

This is why the folks at the VFW turn their backs on John Kerry and have no problems with Cheeney. Never heard an actual veteran complain about anyone aside from the protesters.

Communists are not popular among Vietnam vets or servicemen of any era.

Straight from the Commie playbook: disappearing something to make it seem like it never existed. Well played, Comrade!

You protest too much cumwad.
