    iran, iraq, syria, libya have all signed the nuclear treaty and violated it. there is no guarentee that a nation that wants nuclear weapons will not be able to get it because of a peace of paper. that is the reality of the world. we can all pretend, like chamberlain, that if we have conferences and everybody is nice, polite, shakes hands and drinks their tea with their pinky fingers in the air, they will abide by all the peaces of papers, but history shows different. the thing that obama has forgotten is that there is only one thing which may help nations to stick by their committments -- and even this is not perfect -- but democracy, and democratic nations, held accountable by their own people, can be trusted more than non democratic nations. here we have obama and the idiot idealists trying to get us to sign treaties with dictators and thugs and thinking that these people, who do not even respect their own people, will somehow respect the rest of the world? give me a break.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
