Pathetic Pawns: Lie in Effort to Attack Palin


That was the headline from the pathetic pawns over at ABC. This teaser line takes what Sarah Palin says totally out of context and the left wing blogs are saying this is a hard line stance on foreign policy. But here is the reality of what the interview question and answer was:

"GIBSON: And under the NATO treaty, wouldn't we then have to go to war if Russia went into Georgia? "

"PALIN: Perhaps so. I mean, that is the agreement when you are a NATO ally, is if another country is attacked, you're going to be expected to be called upon and help.

But NATO, I think, should include Ukraine, definitely, at this point and I think that we need to -- especially with new leadership coming in on January 20, being sworn on, on either ticket, we have got to make sure that we strengthen our allies, our ties with each one of those NATO members.

We have got to make sure that that is the group that can be counted upon to defend one another in a very dangerous world today. "

Here is another reality. Any country that is a member of NATO has the guarantee of protection from the other member states. This is a basic tenet of the agreement with NATO countries. So while Gibson, the pathetic pawns, and the left wing propagandists try to take this out of context and smear Palin is another outrage. Either they are completely out of touch with the reality that America has responsibilities under that treaty or they will do anything to attack Palin. The truth is out there and the facts are clear.

McCain and Palin will put America first and fulfill our commitments while the left will leave our allies to fend for themselves while we break our word. There is a saying which says my words are my bond . America's word was to defend the member states within NATO, so yes if a NATO member State is attacked by Russia we may have to aid in that war. The left wing bloggers make the false attachment to all "Russian Satellite States". One of them had the audacity to cite Armenia. Palin never said anything about Armenia. Palin did not say anything about any satellite state. What she said was she would indeed enforce America's words and aid in the defense of NATO member States.

It is clear Palin has taken a tough stance on Russia for attacking and attempting to annex South Ossetia. Georgia is an ally whether they are in NATO or not. We have an obligation to take a tough stance. Gibson followed that up by asking if it was in our Nations National Security interest to defend Georgia. The answer is obvious. Yes it is in our best interests. Georgia is an ally whether or not the left, Obama, and the pathetic pawns believe it or not. America supports her ally's and does not turn her back on them.

Obama turned his back on one of his friends in Chicago. When one of his friends who was an ally for Obama ran for office Obama decided to support the status quo by remaining silent. Is this what the left desires? Should we as a proud nation really turn our backs on our friends? The answer is obviously NO. We can not turn our back on our friends. We have to stand up for what we believe in. We have to stand up for freedom. Our nation was founded on these principles. To do anything less would lead to our ruin.

Sarah Palin made the pathetic pawns at ABC look uninformed and out of touch. They tried to attack Sarah Palin on her foreign policy credentials. Palin showed she had a better grasp of foreign policy than the weak candidate they are actively supporting. Obama was weak and misunderstood our roles and the roles of the United Nations in his response to the Georgia crisis. Palin showed she not only understood our responsibilities but that she would take responsibility.

I have not watched the interview. I just read the transcript on abc's website.

Without even seeing her handle Gibson's attempt to get a "Gotcha" for the liberal MSM to distort and misrepresent, but just reading it, I could tell Charlie Gibson was gunning for her.

Media McCarthyism. Ba$t@rds!

McCain, Obama and Biden all support NATO entry for Georgia. Silly question from Charlie.
