thompson call-out

Wow.

Would-be Presidential candidate Fred Thompson just called-out most of our "allies" in his latest blog post. He was particularly hard on Russia.

Take time to read it.
He brings up a lot of good points.

Most of all though, i am surprised that he is saying what he is, given his possible likely political ambitions. If he wins the election, he will have to sit across the table from these world leaders soon. This is either great, of very stupid. I'm not sure which.

Here's a quick summary--

Our 'allies' in general: "We're also hopeful that, eventually, our ostrich-headed allies will realize there's a World War going on out there and they need to pick a side...most of our European Union friends continue to dismantle their defenses"
Mexico: "[has] an economic policy based on exporting their own citizens, while complaining about US immigration policies that are far less exclusionary than their own"
France: "Jail perfectly nice people for politically incorrect comments, but scold us for holding terrorists at Guantanamo" and "our natural tendency is to tell [them] that we'd rather not hear from them until the day when they need us to bail them out again."
Russia: "Criticize these guys and you might accidentally drink a cup of tea laced with a few million dollars worth of deadly, and extremely rare, radioactive poison. Oppose the Russian leadership, and you could trip and fall off a tall building or stumble into the path of a bullet"

I appreciate a person who can be open about his thoughts, but that's some balls-y comments.
