Obama’s Diplomacy

From even before Barack Obama was installed as the POTUS, he strove mightily to change the tone of America’s diplomacy with other world leaders and titular heads of state.  Since taking office he has been consistent in his efforts in this regard.

Obama Almost Always Extends The Hand of Friendship

So far, I would say that President Obama has completely reversed over 30 years of American diplomacy and foreign policy. That being the case, it’s only fair to say that Obama’s diplomacy is one area in which he’s well on his way to achieving his oft-if-carefully-nuancely-stated goals… 😉

    The above cartoon has a great point. The power of the Israeli state is greatly exaggerated.

    The power of many states are greatly exaggerated – once a POTUS decides that, not only are they no longer considered allies, but prefers to, at least tacitly, side with most or all of their enemies.

    Of course Israel is in a special circumstance. They’re surrounded by enemies who want to utterly destroy them in a genocidal pogrom and are dependent upon the goodwill of the US, who has always been they’re only ally against the Muslims and the UN, most of whose member states have a long history of brutal antisemitism.

    The only good news is that Israel is a nuclear power and, if the Muslims come in numbers to great to be defeated yet again, Israel can take a lot them with them to the grave.

    While I can go on about Israel for hours, I’ll just say that the cartoon does have a good point … Israel is America’s only friend in the middle east. Regardless of how wrong I find their tactics at times, Israel isn’t left with much of a choice and needs to protect her own first and foremost.

    Also, regardless of how the US and Israel bicker, nothing will really change of it. Israel can not exist without the USA, and the USA is tied to Israel in ways which can not be printed in the mainstream media … this is a bond that will last for generations.

    I do not think that the bond between Israel and the US is so strong that an apparent anti-Semite like Obama couldn’t breach it for all time. All it would take is for Obama to back Israel into a corner where they felt they had to finally take a fully aggressive stance in ensuring their survival as a nation and as a people.

    Israel, at that point, would have to strike and strike very hard. It’d be hard then for the US to come to their aid, either militarily or in the pro-Muslim, anti-Israel UN.

    Sometimes that’s what I think Obama is aiming for. Israel solves some of our problem for us and then Obama throws them under the bus.

    I would have to disagree. I don’t believe that Obama could make a decision like that, his bosses wouldn’t allow it. The fact is, as far as I’m concerned, Obama is a puppet just like everyone before him. Notice how quickly the tone changed? … some of his bosses are definitely Jews.

  7. jonolan Says:

    Obama has already blocked sales and delivery of previously contracted key military equipment to Israel, most recently the sale of 6 AH-64D Apache Longbow attack helicopters. At the same time they approved more than $10 billion worth of arms sales to Egypt and Arab League states.

    You describe Obama as a puppet; that’s entirely possible. Yet remember that his largest “buyer” is George Soros who, while of Jewish birth, has never had anything other than enmity towards Israel.
