North Korea and Iran issue Biden-predicted Axis of Evil tests as Obama recruits al Qaeda terrorists with KSM "OJ" Trial promise
Other than, so far, staying the courses in Afghanistan and Iraq (albeit with enemy-friendly timetables for withdrawal) and continuing drone attacks in Pakistan, what has President Barack Obama done in foreign policy but exude weakness to allies and enemies since his Inauguration?
So why would anyone with even a rudimentary knowledge of history, human nature and experience with bullies as a school child expect anything but tests from Detroit underwear bombers, Times Square car bombers and even jihad Muslim Army doctors in Texas?
Obama appeases Iran's mullahs even as they mow down freedom-seekers in streets. So why wouldn't our Brazillian and Turkish allies deem us unreliable and settle for Iran's nuclear bucks, especially after our disgraceful abandonment of Honduras on the rule of law and Georgia, Ukraine and Poland's SDI umbrella.
Then comes Kim Jung Il. Would he have committed an act of war against the United States if the evil regime-remover Cowboy were still the Commander-in-Chief?:
A new American intelligence analysis of a deadly torpedo attack on a South Korean warship concludes that Kim Jong-il, the ailing leader of North Korea, must have authorized the torpedo assault, according to senior American officials who cautioned that the assessment was based on their sense of the political dynamics there rather than hard evidence.
The officials said they were increasingly convinced that Mr. Kim ordered the sinking of the ship, the Cheonan, to help secure the succession of his youngest son.
The United States is obliged to defend South Korea under treaty. North Korea knows this. They also have seen the Obama apology tours that seem to blame America first for the grievances of others against his own country (that would be the U.S., not Kenya or Indonesia, as he was born in Hawaii, a district that went Republican for the first time since his birth, but I digress...).
But then why would any enemy of the United States fear any Democrat since JFK was assassinated, given their abandonment of South Vietnam, Laotians, Hmong, and many other allies? Why would anyone trust a man that routinely throws lifelong mentor-pastors and typical white grandmothers under the bus?
KSM OJ trial a recruiting tool worse than "dead or alive", Abu Ghraib or "Bring it on"
Republicans and conservatives were lectured to after 911 by no less that former President Bill Clinton to consider "why they hate us". Pat Buchanan routinely said "they" (bin Laden et al) were over here because we were "over there." We were told that Gitmo and Abu Graihb terrorist-prisoner abuses were "recruiting tools.'
Never mind that 911 happened before Abu Ghraib and Iraq. Never mind that we have been "over there" teaching them how to extract oil wealth and maintaining free trade lanes with our Navy for over a century. Never mind that its a terrorist group that has come "over here", and not legitimate forces of nations whose people oppose us. Never mind that the people of Iraq lost over 100,000 political opposers of Sadaam in Abu Ghraib wood-chippers when the prison was under non-American management.
President George W. Bush stayed the course in Afghanistan and Iraq for seven years, killed tens of thousands of terrorists trying to protect their home turf that otherwise would have been available for operations across the Fruited Plain, and kept the homeland safe after 911 until Obama took office.
Upon taking office, the Obama Administration appeased Iran (the greatest sponsor of terror in the world); made clear that no more terrorists would have to endure nose-swabbings; and would be Mirandized and given free legal counsel and "OJ" civilian trials as Gitmo prisoners were transferred to a local jail near you.
Think a would-be terrorist that eschews martyrdom might not be more easily recruited if he can star in his own jihad teach-in in the Big Apple? Think all terrorists might feel like Osama bin Laden did in the 90s and before Bush's spine smacked him out of Kabul when he called Clinton's America a paper tiger and weak horse and be made more confident that they could fell the Great Satan again?
I think so.
Russia rolled Obama over nuclear weapons reductions and SDI development. France laughs at the boy. Obama treats Britain like an unwelcome guest.
The world is starting to understand that Obama considers his First Citizen of the "International Community" duties trump his Oath as the 44th President of the United States.
Prepare for more tests at Home and pray for the innocent lovers of Liberty abroad, for if a President of the United States won't defend us and won't be the leader of the Free World, then we won't be defended and the free world is imperiled.
Even if a Democratic Party-controlled Congress wanted to defend us they couldn't. Only a Commander-in-Chief can order military action, and B. Hussein Obama is no JFK and his party is not he party of FDR or HST.
During the 2009 campaign, then Vice-Presidential nominee Joe Biden predicted that the young President would be tested.
So far he is no JFK. In fact he isn't even Jimmy Carter.
I fear for my country, the free people of the world and those that yearn to breathe free. But Obama is too busy destroying freedom at home to care a whit about anything but Obama's radical agenda to fundamentally change a flawed America, as he sees it.
The fundamental change, after 5000 years of darkness, of liberty here and abroad that came to the world thanks to the America he loathes, was pretty good, I thought.
God save us from this reckless man and his kind. This ain't Camelot. Its Camel-Not because Obama don't know Jack! [h/t to Bill Clinton as Merlin the Magician on Rush]
