Go "hope and change"! Go ahead and stab our allies (with troops in Afghanistan) in the back!
Pres BO made a bad decision. He reversed Pres Bush's decision to put missiles in Poland and the Czech Republic.
What's wrong with this decision?
First, we are exposing Poland and others to Russian expansionism.
Second, there is no evidence that we got anything from Russia, such as more support in shutting down Iran's nuclear program.
Third, there are may Dems who don't get it either: Bipartisan Senate concern over Obama decision on missile defense
Fourth, it looks like Putin manhandled BO: Russia's Putin says U.S. shield decision positive
We agree with today's WSJ editorial:
"The European switcheroo continues Mr. Obama's trend of courting adversaries while smacking allies.
His Administration has sought warmer ties with Iran, Burma, North Korea, Russia and even Venezuela.
But it has picked trade fights with Canada and Mexico, sat on trade treaties with Colombia and South Korea, battled Israel over West Bank settlements, ignored Japan in deciding to talk with North Korea, and sanctioned Honduras for its sin of resisting the encroachments of Venezuela's Hugo Chávez."
We agree with NR:
"President Obama knows how to put a smile on faces in Tehran and Moscow:
This morning, he announced the abandonment of plans to develop a small missile-defense system in Eastern Europe."
We like this from Bill Katz:
"Have you noticed that only four groups have benefited from Obama's foreign policy?
They are Russians, North Koreans, Latin American reds, and Iranian mullahs.
Think about it."
We agree with The Economist from the UK:
"MAYBE some jam tomorrow, but none today.
That is the American message to its most stalwart allies in the ex-communist world as Barack Obama’s administration shelves plans to deploy ten interceptor rockets in Poland and a radar station in the Czech Republic.
The timing of the announcement is poor, coming on September 17th, the anniversary of the Soviet attack on Poland in 1939.
In a country highly tuned to symbolic snubs, it matters that nobody in Washington seemed to know or care about that."
Ironically, Pres BO is going to need countries like Poland and the Czech Republic to help us in Afghanistan.
Wonder what the Poles or Czechs will say when "hope and change" calls for more support in Afghanistan?
Again, we don't get BO's foreign policy.
We don't get why "hope and change" is so eager to talk to Iran and North Korea but won't release The Merida Plan funds because of investigations over "human rights violations" by the Mexican military.
We don't understand why "hope and change" hugs Chavez and declares a diplomatic war against Honduras.
It's BO's world and the bad guys are the only ones cheering these days!
Sooner or later, the "chickens of appeasement and beating up our allies" will come home to roost!
