Obama Passes Test for Political Inexperience and Weakness

By Con George-Kotzabasis

Obama is like someone who has inherited great wealth (read political power) only to squander it in senseless profligate excesses. He appeased the Russians, as I predicted he would, with the withdrawal of the missiles installation from Czechoslovakia and Poland at the expense of close allies; he tried to browbeat Israel with his no settlement pronunciamento to no avail, as he and his close advisers, including Clinton, astonishingly misread the position of the majority of Israelis on the issue and paying the high price of increasing Palestinian expectations and inadvertently making it a condition for its leadership, that never existed before, for direct talks with Israel; he tried in his Cairo speech to reach a rapprochement with Muslims by praising with intellectual blindness the great achievements of Islam prior to the Renaissance while sweeping under the carpet the great failure of Islam with unprecedented wealth in its hands in our era, without receiving any conciliatory gestures from those who were so gloriously exalted; and presently he is opening negotiations with the illegitimate government of Iran with no explicit and clear restrictions on its nuclear program at the expense of the democratic forces of the country with their great potential to oust the Khamenei-Ahmadinejad regime, if the Obama administration had taken the prudent stand of not accepting its legitimacy and isolating it from the international community.

In short, Obama, the tyro in foreign affairs and the weakling that I said he was a year ago, is squandering America’s power and prestige in his doltish idiotic diplomacy and he is transforming, slowly but surely, the strength of America into weakness at a time when only the power of the U.S. wisely expended can protect Western civilization from the suicidal and deadly sallies of irreconcilable implacable enemies. Who was it in the Bush administration who said that “weakness is provocative?” Former Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld.

  1. “Squandering America’s power and prestige?” You have got to be kidding. He’s trying to restore those things. After eight years of the Bush administration, America is seen as weak, effete, and a joke. We’re the laughing stock of the world.

    At least now we have someone who is intellectually curious and can put a few words together to form coherent sentences.

    Claiming that Obama has appeased the Russians lacks any validity. Russia is now willing to work with us to constrain Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

  2. Obama indeed has a lot of eloquent words and “coherent sentences” in his quiver but he will be missing all the marks of US foreign policy as no “coherent sentences” or eloquent “words” ‘fired’ by his bow will ever defeat the implacable enemies of America.

    And as I indicate in my short piece above, Obama has already missed his marks in his foreign policy opening. And you are under a great illusion if you think that Putin’s Russia will be supporting Obama on sanctions against Iran.

  3. I don’t know If I said it already but …Excellent site, keep up the good work. I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks, 🙂
