It is a sad state of affairs that our current administration learned nothing from the second world war. They missed lessons like:
- strength comes from superior firepower
- it is never better to practice appeasement
- “bring them to their knees, then befriend them” is an effective strategy
- those who want to kill you, will lie to you
Since the Obama camp has taken over we have thrown ally after ally under the bus. Israel? (check) Poland? (check) The Czech Republic (check) Iraq (a work in progress, as is Afghanistan). There is no excuse for the President of the United Stated failing to keep ties with allies strong while negotiating with the likes of China, North Korea, Russia, (remember the invasion of Georgia?). How about Saudi Arabia (who, contrary to popular belief is not an ally) Venezuela, Cuba, Lybia, or Iran. Aren’t some of these people the “axis of evil”??? The leader of our country has actively sought them out to negotiate. NEGOTIATE?? He is worried about how we are perceived.
Ann Coulter succinctly describes Obama’s “Apology Tour, ’09.”
Well, I’m glad that’s over! Now that our silver-tongued president has gone to Cairo to soothe Muslims’ hurt feelings, they love us again! Muslims in Pakistan expressed their appreciation for President Barack Obama’s speech by bombing a fancy hotel in Peshawar this week.
Operating on the liberal premise that what Arabs really respect is weakness, Obama listed, incorrectly, Muslims’ historical contributions to mankind, such as algebra (actually that was the ancient Babylonians), the compass (that was the Chinese), pens (the Chinese again) and medical discoveries (huh?).
But why be picky? All these inventions came in mighty handy on Sept. 11, 2001! Thanks, Muslims!!
Obama bravely told the Cairo audience that 9/11 was a very nasty thing for Muslims to do to us, but on the other hand, they are victims of colonization.
Except we didn’t colonize them. The French and the British did. So why are Arabs flying planes into our buildings and not the Arc de Triomphe? (And gosh, haven’t the Arabs done a lot with the Middle East since the French and the British left!)
In another sharks-to-kittens comparison, Obama said, “Now let me be clear, issues of women’s equality are by no means simply an issue for Islam.” No, he said, “the struggle for women’s equality continues in many aspects of American life.”
So on one hand, 12-year-old girls are stoned to death for the crime of being raped in Muslim countries. But on the other hand, we still don’t have enough female firefighters here in America.
Delusionally, Obama bragged about his multicultural worldview, saying, “I reject the view of some in the West that a woman who chooses to cover her hair is somehow less equal.” In Saudi Arabia, Iran, Afghanistan and other Muslim countries, women “choose” to cover their heads on pain of losing them….
This isn’t time to community organize, Mr. President, You are the leader of the greatest nation on earth and you had better start acting like it. You need to MAN UP and fulfill your oath to this country. Your primary job, first and foremost, is to protect the citizens of the United States. Woven in with that national security action is keeping our allies in foreign lands so we complement each other and can depend on them when we need them. Scrapping missile defense shields programs from Poland and the Czech Republic further weakens our stance in the world. Remember Sirik Matak, Cambodia?
With this administration, we now have a trifecta of failures, economy, domestic policy, and now foreign policy.
You are not keeping us safe. Your policies are rife with contempt for the country and our allies. You consort with enemies, believing your charisma will beguile them and make them want to stop hating us. You apologize for every sin, real or mythical distortion as you see it, and bow to Saudi kings. For this reason, if that only, you should be impeached for breach of contract and failure to fulfill your oath of office.
