And Obama is America's first Third World president.

What's this got to do with Britain, or indeed with Europe? Plenty. Obama is the first US president who was raised without cultural or emotional or intellectual ties to either Britain or Europe. The British and the Europeans have been so enchanted with 'America's first black president' that they haven't been able to see what he really is: America's first Third World president.

If you doubt it, remember the kick in the teeth he gave Britain over the Falklands just a few weeks ago. Obama had his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, fly to Buenos Aires to give American support to President Kirchner's call for international negotiations over the Falklands. Amazing. What was more amazing is that all we've heard out of Number 10 and the Foreign Office since then is that it doesn't mean anything.

Oh, yes it does, and Washington insiders know it does

Odd thing: I went to the Daily Mail site to read the whole thing, and the page is there but the article isn't. Hopefully just a temporary glitch. Or did enough leftists scream that the paper took it down?

If your running Ad blocking extensions or whatever, temporarily turn it off?   Or try that link with another browser?   I was seeing just 'white space' instead of the article until I turned of my ADP extension in Firefox.   After that the article you refer to was visible.   YMMV?

Yeah, I only got it to show when I turned adblocker off.

Now to lobby the Brits to enlarge the Falklands garrison, and even better, for the Falklanders to take up 1,000, 2,000 and 3,000m target shooting...
