"International Space Station.....the US now DEPENDS on Russia to send up our/all astronauts and supplies....HAVE YOU SEEN WHAT's GOING ON??"

Incredible....we JUST retired the US Shuttle Fleet......and
1) Now the US MUST depend on the Russians to launch up our/all astronauts AND more supplies..... and  (I never liked that solution....NEVER...and NOW!!!.......
2) THIS article just came out:  Space Station may be EVACUATED this November.
Last wekk it was "minor" news.....that a Russian supply rocket didn't make orbit and BLEW UP somewhere in Siberia...and now??......
"Space Station may be Evaucated this November????"
My question is......how long does it take for the United States to become a 3rd world nation??  
1) Our banking system brought the world to the BRINK of financial armageddon 3 years ago.
2) Our "Rating companies" rated bad mortgage bonds AAA...and sold them to banks in Europe.....and some of those banks COLLAPSED becuase of that. 
3) Our President is no longer "looked up to" by many nations around the world.

For the first time in a long time, the President of the United States is not trusted by our allies or feared by our adversaries, and is respected by neither. "
"Let me be clear: I'm not normally in favour of boycotts, and I love the American people. I holiday in their country regularly, and hate the tedious snobby sneers against the United States .  But the American people chose to elect an idiot who seems hell bent on insulting their allies, and something must be done to stop Obama's reckless foreign policy, before he does the dirty on his allies on every issue."
--London Daily Telegraph editor Alex Singleton, March 11.
There are other articles, too....
From Israel.......even one year BEFORE he told Netenyahu to accept 1967 peace lines.... (UGH!) 
Even the Muslims he has been "courting" since he came into office, still don't like him.......or us..... as a country.  GOOD JOB rasing THAT bar!!
4) The great United States of America is no longer a world leader in so many areas....and is no longer looked to with "respect" by many nations....even by our long term allies in europe and beyond.
and 5).... we will now have to depend on the Russians to get to and from the Space Station.....you gotta be kidding me!!!!!!!!!!!!!  
Remember how long it took for the US to "return to space" after rockets blew up along the way??  It took a minimum of 1-1/2 years to return to space.  And now, the same rockets that just blew up a cargo rocket, are to be used to launch OUT astronauts into space next month????  I don't think soooooo!!!!!
HOW DID WE FALL ('from Grace") so quickly......
And THERE IT IS.......how DID we fall from Grace so quickly???  Ah, the answer is right out of the Bible.  "Those who bless Israel will be blessed and those who curse Israel will be cursed.." 
I'll bet, years ago, the leaders of England wondered the SAME thing...."I say, mate, how did we go from the 'sun never sets on England'..." to just this tiny bloody island to call home??" 
I WANT TO GO HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
