On Obama’s Foreign Policy

It’s difficult sometimes to decide whether to mark something as “Food” or “Poison”. This piece, a good, albeit chilling, piece on Obama’s foreign policy: A Snapshot of Obama’s Obscene Foreign Policy is exactly such a thing–is it “Food” because it educates on an important topic, or “Poison” because the topic itself is terrible.

I’ll opt for “Food” in these cases, I think, because by reading them, one’s intellectual health is improved. One has to know one’s enemy to defeat him.

So:

Caroline Glick has written a good piece summing up the global situation in the wake of President Obama’s recent travels to Britain, France, the Czech Republic, Turkey, and Iraq. Here’s an excerpt:

Somewhere between apologizing for American history—both distant and recent; genuflecting before the unelected, bigoted king of Saudi Arabia; announcing that he will slash the US’s nuclear arsenal, scrap much of America’s missile defense programs and emasculate the US Navy; leaving Japan to face North Korea and China alone; telling the Czechs, Poles and their fellow former Soviet colonies, “Don’t worry, be happy,” as he leaves them to Moscow’s tender mercies; humiliating Iraq’s leaders while kowtowing to Iran; preparing for an open confrontation with Israel; and thanking Islam for its great contribution to American history, President Obama made clear to the world’s aggressors that America will not be confronting them for the foreseeable future.

Whether they are aggressors like Russia, proliferators like North Korea, terror exporters like nuclear-armed Pakistan or would-be genocidal-terror-supporting nuclear states like Iran, today, under the new administration, none of them has any reason to fear Washington.

Read the whole thing.

I agree. Read the whole thing.
