Obama’s Foreign Policy Like Milk & Cookies

Sunday, April 19, 2009

Who is a bigger media whore; Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of Venezuela, Hugo Chávez, or our Apologist-in-Chief, Barack Obama?

It’s not even a contest as the slobbering media and most of the world have crowned Obama their fave. It’s no wonder that at the recent G20 meeting in London and the Fifth Summit of the Americas in Trinidad and Tobago on Saturday, that world leaders are crawling over each other to shake his hand and garner a photo-op. They all hope his electoral luck will rub off on them.

Obama’s popularity however, has not translated into a coherent Foreign Policy plan. What Hillary Cilnton has dubbed “Smart Power” – has been anything but smart, powerful or even professional.

Obama’s world wide apology tour now includes Mexico, Cuba, and all of Central and South America.

In his opening remarks he said, “There is no senior partner and junior partner in our relations; there is simply engagement based on mutual respect and common interests and shared values. So I’m here to launch a new chapter of engagement that will be sustained throughout my administration.”

Which led to this at his closing press conference, “The whole notion was that if we showed courtesy or opened up dialogue with governments that had previously been hostile to us, that that somehow would be a sign of weakness,”

Courtesy and dialogue and respectful engagement is one thing, but Obama needs to defend America’s interests first, instead of apologising to the rest of the world.

So far he is batting zero. The G20 refused his request for more money, NATO turned down combat troops for Afghanistan, Russia snubbed cooperation on Iran, and North Korea fired off it’s missle-test over the Sea of Japan.

Instead of a strong American response, Obama let the United Nations put out one of their standard condemnations a full eight days after the missile firing.

Obama is trying to appease the Muslim world – in the errant belief that submission and apologies will suddenly stop Islamo-Terrorism. They have even changed the vocabulary – how stupid is that.

Buried in a supplemental request of $83.4 billion to further fund military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan is $200 million for the Palestinian Authority — meaning Hamas. Read this post from Mere Rhetoric.

Then there is even a more disturbing report about President Obama’s Mideast envoy, George Mitchell, who has stated that the only solution to the conflict is the two-state solution, which he presented with no strings attached.

The Arab plan actually is a prescription for the end of Israel as a Jewish state because it’s predicated on a “right of return” for millions of Palestinian refugees and their descendants to flood back into Israel.  Drafted on a take-it-or-leave-it basis, it also would put under Palestinian rule all of Judaism’s most sacred sites in the Holy Land — Temple Mount where stood the First and Second Temples, the Western Wall, the Cave of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs — every vestige of Jewish historical links in Jerusalem’s Old City and Hebron.  Safeguarding these holy sites would be entrusted to the same Palestinians who have used Rachel’s Tomb near Bethlehem for snipers’ target practice and who destroyed Joseph’s Tomb near Nablus.

“A more benign explanation is that Obama, when it comes to the Middle East, has created his own never-never land and blinds himself to any and all realities that don’t fit his pure, peacemaking instincts.  Obama simply ignores hard, nitty-gritty boulders on his happy-talk gambol on the yellow-brick road to a Mideast Oz.” American Thinker has the full story.

French President, Nikolas Sarkozy called Obama a “weak, inexperienced” leader who “never ran a ministry in his life” before becoming U.S. President.

The world and the Unites States voters are just finding out that they’ve elected an empty suit who’s every move is choreographed by David Axelrod and Rahm Emanuel and every word is carefully scripted so it can be read off a teleprompter.

I can’t wait for elections in 2010 and 2012.
