…while alienating more of our allies.
Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s hatred for America becomes clearer every day. He showers praise on the ruthless tyranies in the Muslim world while throwing a democratic and loyal ally of the U.S., Israel, under the bus. He equates the Nazi Holocaust with the Palestinian problem (caused by the Palestinians not the Israelis as he implied). He is hands off, not wanting to “meddle” in the Iranian regime’s brutality toward the protesters. He allies himself with a dictator in Honduras and is cheered by other dictators in S. America.
His latest contempt for America and its allies comes out of his agreement with Russia to cut 1/3 of our nuclear arsenal, while all but throwing out our agreement to provide a missile shield for former Soviet satellites and current American allies, Georgia and the Ukraine.
And what does this have to do with Islam you might ask, since Islam is the theme of this website? Apparently, Mr. Obama didn’t even discuss the Iranian nuclear situation during his stay in Russia. It’s no secret that Iran intends to become a nuclear power and Russia is its greatest supplier of nuclear technology. Funny that Mr. Obama didn’t seem interested in putting any limitations on Iran’s nuclear ambitions or Russia’s strong support of them. In fact:
Russia is responsible for construction of the Iranian nuclear power plant at Bushehr. Russia is supplying Iran with nuclear fuel with no provisions for dealing with spent nuclear fuel. Russia has provided “blueprints” for Iran’s development of a heavy water nuclear reactor. Official Russia turns a blind eye while Iran obtains uranium mining and milling technology from Russian companies. Russia is Iran’s close partner when it comes to delivery systems – building missiles. At least seven Russian companies expert in missile technology are operating in Iran.
Mr. Putin’s finger wagging lecture to Mr. Obama about the Cold War and American arrogance was met with Obama trying to share credit for America’s victory in ending the Cold War with several countries, including Russia, rather than giving credit where credit was due: only to America. And I didn’t notice Mr. Obama’s finger wagging in the face of Mr. Putin for his continuing support of Iran’s nuclear program.
Ironically, seeing this photo of Mr. Obama holding his hand over his heart at the playing of the Russian National Anthem in 2009, I couldn’t help but recall…
…this photo of Mr. Obama standing with his hands folded in front of him at the playing of the American National Anthem in 2007:
Here’s a very poignant piece from the UK Telegraph: Barack Obama holds a fire sale of America’s nuclear defenses in Moscow:
By Gerald Warner
The Looney Tunes President’s sell-out of US and Western interests is proceeding at such a speed that it is difficult to keep pace. Well said, Nile Gardiner, for asking if Barack Obama is the most naïve president in American history. The answer is undoubtedly yes – unless he has a secret agenda to cut America down to size.
It was always in Russia that Obama threatened to do most damage (to America) and, as Nile Gardiner has rightly pointed out, these forebodings have been fulfilled. His supposed missile deal with Vladimir Putin (let’s cut straight to the organ-grinder and by-pass Medvedev, the monkey) is very satisfactory to Russian ambitions and realpolitik.
The nuclear power balance, as at 2007, was a Russian superiority of 2,146 land-launched nuclear warheads to 1,600 US; this was counterbalanced by a US superiority of 3,168 sea-launched US warheads to 1,392 Russian and 1,098 air-launched US warheads to 624 Russian. The bottom line, however, is that it is Russia which is now in the lead in ICBM development, not America.
For America voluntarily to reduce its nuclear superiority is madness. Bien-pensant talk of a nuclear-free world displays total stupidity in a global situation where nuclear weaponry is proliferating, not receding. There is even a nuclear bomb in Pakistan, which is teetering on the brink of failed statehood at the hands of Islamist insurgents. Is this a time for America to disarm, to “sell the store” as one trenchant right-wing commentator has already described Obama’s posturing in Moscow?
For Obama, success is not the delivery of watertight nuclear security for America; it is a feel-good news conference and photo opportunity that will create huge approval ratings on liberal campuses where the delusions of 1968 and the anti-Vietnam war movement still linger on in these isolated Jurassic Parks.
It seems certain Obama will sacrifice the anti-missile shield in Europe that would have been our defense against a nuclear Iran after the ayatollahs, with Russian help, emerge as potential vapourising agents of the infidel. The interceptor missiles do not even carry warheads: they rely on an impact at 14,900mph to destroy any incoming missile, so Russian hysteria about this “threat” is synthetic.
Obama’s fire-sale diplomacy augurs ill for our future. UK TELEGRAPH
