So… Who Died And Made You The Queen?

Sometime last week I heard Obama saying 'We are closely monitoring the situation'. This was on BBC World Service and he was talking about the Ukraine Crisis / protests.

I couldn't help but chuckle, because this was pretty much the same thing he said about the situation in Syria. Lots of times!

Just the other day, I was listening to the news about the Ugandan parliament passing an anti-gay bill. Towards the end of that piece, there was yet another statement from Obama. He said passing of this bill would COMPLICATE Washington's relations with Uganda [Link].

I have absolutely nothing against the gay community… and I don't think that a person's sexuality is a matter of concern or discussion for the MP's. There are plenty of people who DEMAND a law legalising gay unions. Also plenty of people who DEMAND criminalising gay unions. I have never really understood the point of either groups.

That said, I do want to know why Obama / America feels the need to 'monitor' everything! I am sure there are enough issues within the US borders itself to keep the President busy. Why does he feel the need to interfere with what is happening in Ukraine or what bill is being passed in Uganda?

I mean… the Ukraine protest was an internal issue. A power struggle or whatever, but internal nonetheless. The anti-gay bill in Uganda is their issue. It has nothing to do with America. It does not effect any international trade treaty or similar agreement. So why does Obama feel compelled to 'warn' of said bill complicating relationships between US and Uganda?!?

I can understand that he would have to comment when asked by a reporter. Or he felt the need to comment because the Ugandan leader had sought advice… But the WARNING – that was uncalled for.

Daft Cunt.
