I’m usually not politically active

… but this is so obvious …. I mean I will loose all my faith into the American people, the society and Democracy in general, if anybody but Obama is the next president.

And I already lost faith in US foreign politics … how can one be so stupid, planning to build a “defense missile” station in Poland and then wonder if the Russians think about reanimating their base in Cuba. What the heck is wrong with those people? And the Cuba-crisis was also never foreseeable … no, no, no, there were no rocket stations in Turkey. Fefe also has some nice comments (partially German) on this.

After skimming parts of Legacy of Ashes, I’m convinced that the “Intelligence” in CIA must have a very different meaning in (US) English than the German word “Intelligenz”.
