What people do not realize is claiming stories such as this are true only ruins your credibility and makes you one not to take seriously in the future.

There many issues to go after Obama on. This is hardly one of them. It merely exposes you as a partisan hack who will lie for political purposes.

Both sides of the aisle do this. I have seen a liberal member here act similar by claiming Republicans hate women and children and will not be happy until they are chained to the kitchen and their vaginas are sewn shut.

Dramatics wins you no awards. It merely makes you look foolish and lowers your credibility.

Not a partisan hack but gullible.

No. When you are shown you are wrong and you continue to stand by your position in spite of facts, you are a hack.

This is simply not true.

A treaty that would have ceded these islands to Russia, more than two decades ago, was never ratified by the US Senate...

Your hatred for Obama is interfering with common sense.

See post #5.

I would suggest confronting REAL issues with Obama as opposed to chasing this ghost.

The Baker-Shevardnadze agreement (never yet ratified by the Russian parliament) places those islands on the US side of the boundary: USSR?USA Maritime Boundary Agreement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Where they lie geographically is irrelevant. What does matter is which nation owns them.

All of the islands listed in your article from WorldNetDaily belong to Russia.

Uh, the Baker-Shevardnadze agreement (which I cited; and to which, you were responding) is not about" [w]here they lie geographically"...

Well, all of Alaska is closer to Russia than it is to the lower 48 states; and it is actually contiguous to Canada.

Using the logic insisted upon, above, one should conclude that none of Alaska is actually a part of the US...
