The Obama Doctrine of Foreign Policy

Jan 31 2012 Published by under salt


h/t IBD – Michael Ramirez Cartoon

The only thing wrong with this depiction of Obama is that the fear he expresses is ours, not his.  Obama, I have no doubt, believes that we can drop our military pants and continue to be safe behind the firewall of his awesomeness.  Handy thing, sociopathic narcissism.  Makes it possible to drone bomb half the f*cking Middle-East without a single declaration of war on any of the multiple sovereign nations he turns into rubble, and still go to sleep at night sure they don’t mind.  Also helps you sleep at night when you make yourself judge, jury, and executioner of American citizens.  Yup.  Sure is nifty to be Bam-Bam.

Obama 2008: Iran NOT “serious threat”

Nov 16 2011 Published by under salt

Then Senator Barack Obama, May 18, 2008, on the campaign trail in Oregon:

“They don’t pose a serious threat to us… If Iran ever tried to pose a serious threat to us, they wouldn’t stand a chance.”

He based this gem of foreign policy reasoning on the observation that they are a “tiny” little country.


Guess he never factored in waiting for the Mahdi, dramatic advances in computer chips & GPS guided technology and how the whole smack is one hell of a lot cheaper and easier to get now than it was in the 1980′s (When the Soviet Union loomed large, which he cited as the last time we faced a real threat from a real country.)

But… Annie… He’s super-smart so he couldn’t possibly be this facile in his understanding of the world, right?  Plus, he said this waaaaay back… in… 2008…

I swear to God you cannot make this stuff up.

Do I need to even bring up what would happen in Palin or Cain said this?

On Foreign Policy “Judgement” Obama Wins? Uh-NO

Oct 24 2011 Published by under salt

 If it weren’t so sad, it would be funny.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe opened this morning taking broad swipes at the GOP field for being foreign-policy-feckless, and furthering their point by insisting that we must have sound foreign policy judgement in the next President – like Obama’s… 

Got that?  Obama’s foreign policy judgement is sound.  Okay?  Now, let’s remember:

In a 2002 Chicago speech – organized, by the way, by his radical friends Marilyn Katz, Bernadine Dohrn, & Bill Ayers – Obama called Iraq the ‘dumb’ war and Afghanistan the ‘good’ war.  Bam-Bam’s been dining out on that speech as the shining jewel of his FP chops ever since.  Over the weekend we learn, that this GENIUS-of-Foreign-Policy-Judgement has led us to the following:

1. IRAQ: OBAMA’s cynically political decision to have the Iraqi troops 100% home for Christmas will likely result in the worst kind of back-sliding, VERY likely redounding to the benefit of IRAN.  Even lefty analyists say so.  Result?  Yet another enemy of Israel emboldened THANKS TO OBAMA.

2. AFGHANISTAN: Hamid Karzai just told the world that Afghanistan will choose Pakistan as their ally AGAINST the United States should there be a need to pick sides.  Doesn’t matter, frankly, why or when we have to pick sides.  The guy we spent 10 years trying to help in the war Obama APPROVED of, HATES US – LETHALLY.  Not just diplomatic hate.  Take up arms and KILL YOU hate.

So! Obama was 180 degrees WRONG about BOTH of the big ticket wars we have on the ground he’s been PREENING he’s been so RIGHT about since 2002.

There’s nothing Herman Cain lacks in judgement, as a man, as a leader, to make SOUND Foreign Policy judgement that he can’t learn in a briefing book.  

Obama’s problem is EXACTLY the OPPOSITE:  There aren’t enough briefing books in the world to help him – he’s too arrogant, too prison-bound in his ideology.

Sorry, Mika.

And do we even need to pick the scab of how he’s directly treated England?  Or Israel? When you consider that England & Israel have traditionally been America’s strongest and most important allies, and the unutterably shabby way he has treated them – IT’S LAUGHABLE that Obama’s FP judgement is admirable.

Laughable… Until you cry.

Protection for Israel

May 19 2011 Published by under salt

It’s hard to know what to say. I’m sorry. I’m thunderstruck. Sad. Fearful. I don’t believe in any one ‘brand’ of God, so I am reluctant to endorse that we pray for divine providence, but what else is there to do? Those poor, isolated people. They are surrounded on all sides by people who have been imbued since birth with hatred for them. Nations full of people who want to kill them. People who will try to kill them.

I’m so very sorry, Israel. May all the powers of heaven and earth which reside in the light of goodness embrace you and keep you safe.

If you only watch NBC, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, or rely on The New York Times, for news this is a bit of a surprise.

Then there’s the rest of us.
