Who Lost The Western Pacific? Obama did.

Today the claim that the U.S. is the leader of the free world was again refuted. No one but a racist West-Asian colony of a few East-Europeans follows its lead:
The U.N. General Assembly has voted overwhelmingly to condemn the U.S. commercial, economic and financial embargo against Cuba for the 22nd year in a row.

The vote Tuesday was 188-2, with three abstentions. The United States and Israel voted against it.

The vote was lost despite Obama's alleged recent order to the NSA to curb some of its illegal spying on the United Nations. The outcome of the vote was worse than expected. Under Obama the United States has lost the western Pacific. This year Micronesia voted against the U.S. after abstaining last year. Palau abstained after voting with the U.S. last year.

Bernhard, Micronesia did not "vote against the US after abstaining last year."
This year. Against: USrael. Abstain: Palau, Marshall Is, Micronesia.
Last year. Against: USrael, Palau. Abstain: Marshall Is, Micronesia.

The voting on Palestine and Israeli Apartheid goes the same way

The only question is ... of the world's two most hated nations ... which is MHN#1 and which MHN#2.

But no one really cares. The hatred is measured in feet and the difference between the two in inches.
