Obama’s Foreign Policy – August 25, 2008
Obama lacks understanding of foreign policy and here’s some proof.
He thinks American Presidents don’t meet with the likes of Ahmedinajad of Iran because they are trying to punish them! Absurd. It’s easy for most people to see that you don’t meet with people like that because it has serious ramifications.
These deranged leaders are clearly not rational, normal or rooted in the concept of right and wrong. They lie. They imprison those who disagree with them. They murder, or have their hit squads murder. They deny their citizens the basic freedoms that all humans should have. They enrich themselves and care not that their constituents are poor. They are power hungry and will do anything to gain power, to the detriment of their people. They are dangerous to the rest of the world, especially if they are building nuclear weapons. Some may not even be sane. They say crazy things as if they believe them. Ahmedinajad says the holocaust never happened. Ghadaffi says America is a dictatorship, not a democracy.
In a negotiation with one of these lunatics, America can only loose. These people lie and make promises they don’t intend to keep. America can’t trust them. So what is America supposed to do after negotiating, getting the big lie and then what? Why negotiate with someone you know you can’t trust or believe? It’s ridiculous.
Obama says we have the obligation to talk to these murderous power-hungry liars so we can move forward. To where? Who’s moving forward? We don’t move forward by dealing with murderers or accepting lies or trusting evil. Obama sounds naive or crazy himself. America goes forward without tyrants and dictators. The people whose freedom is denied by these tyrants and dictators can’t move forward.
When the likes of Ahmedinajad threatens other countries while building nuclear weapons, they must be told, and not necessarily in person, “Stop threatening and stop building nuclear weapons because you just might convince other countries that you mean it and they will drop a few well-placed bombs on you first.” That should do it. If it doesn’t, then they sealed their own fate, suffered the consequences of their own deplorable actions.
America does not have to feel responsible for saving these tyrants from themselves. Why does Obama have such compassion for them? They would kill him in a heartbeat, if it served their purpose.
Obama said he thinks it’s a disgrace that we haven’t spoken to these despots. Well, thinking of the people he’s surrounded himself with throughout his adult life, I don’t wonder.
He foolishly says that “We need to send a signal that we need to talk to Iran and Syria because they’re going to have responsibilities if Iraq collapses. They have been acting irresponsibly up until this point, but if we tell them that we are not going to be a permanent occupying force, we are in a position to say that they are going to have to carry some weight in terms of stabilizing the region.”
Does he not know that Iran was at war with Iraq for eight years before America went in? Iran did much to destablize that very region. Now Obama is just going to tell them to carry some weight in stablizing the region they helped destablize! Does Obama not realize that Syria funneled weapons and fighters into Iraq to keep it unstable? Iran and Syria don’t want a stable Iraq. They definitely don’t want a democracy in Iraq. Iran is destabilizing a region far wider than Iraq by threatening Israel.
Obama is severely lacking in foreign policy skills, even in understanding lunatic dictators and tyrants. He is a terrible judge of character, unless he likes hateful, criminal minds. Once again, I think of the people Obama has surrounded himself with all of his adult life.
There is no more time to do nothing.
