Bush and Obama-Two peas from the same pod

When German troops invaded Poland in 1939 to start World War II,an American diplomat said, “If I’d only had a chance to talk to Hitler,this could have been prevented” ! There are some diplomats and leaders so naive that they actually believe that. There is no need to talk to the Hitlers of the world. They perceive that as weakness in their adverary’s part. The only thing tyrants understand is sheer,brute force. Barack Obama is a naive,gullible man. He says that he intends to sit down and talk to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Talking to him would be like a criminologist trying to reason with a serial killer to persuade him to stop killing. What would the criminologist say? That killing is bad? Serial killers know it’s bad. They kill because they enjoy it. Some of the leaders of the world are insane. Literally. Kim Jong Il is more than just ruthless,he is truly insane. This will not deter Obama. He will try to sit down with him and reason with him. He will also try to persuade Ahmadinejad to abandon nuclear weapons,but this is futile. The Iranian President is full of hatred toward Israel in particular and Jews in general. He wants to drop nuclear weapons on Israel. The nuclear weapons today are far more powerful than those dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Today’s bombs can each kill up to a million people ! Since Israel only has six million people,simple arithmetic tell us that once Iran acquires these weapons they won’t need very many to totally destroy Israel. Ahmadinejad has said time and time again that he wants to “wipe out” Israel from the face of the earth. He said it as recently as two weeks ago while he was at the UNITED NATIONS ! Hillary Clinton said during the primaries that if Iran used nuclear weapons on Israel the United States would “obliterate” Iran. She was attacked viciously by the press and by Obama’s supporters,but she was right. Fear is an essential component of a superpower’s arsenal. Does anyone think that any of the former Soviet Union’s republics will dare to challenge Russia again after the way Russia crushed Georgia a few weeks ago? Nobody is going to fear Obama. Everybody knows he is all bluster. Everybody will fear John McCain because they know he means what he says. The Iranians laughed at Jimmy Carter. They were terrified of Ronald Reagan. George W.Bush and Barack Obama are two peas from the same pod. They reduce complex problems to simplistic solutions. Reason and logic have no chance against hatred and intolerance or against madness. Obama’s naivete and gullibility are a threat to America’s security and interests. His supporters like to say he is another John Kennedy. That’s a joke. Kennedy was a hawk. Obama is another Neville Chamberlain.
