Skip to comments.The Conspicuous Absence of U.S. Allies at Obama Nuke Summit
Posted on 04/12/2010 8:56:59 AM PDT by Starman417
Why do so many of our friends and allies have a problem with Obama?
With leaders of over 40 countries attending, Obama's two day pow wow on nukes and terrorism will be the largest gathering of world leaders in the U.S. since Franklin Roosevelt invited world leaders to form the United Nations in 1945. The big show, starting Monday, will be a lead news item.
But more interesting than an empty summit with little to no practical value is the list of friends and allies who will not be attending. Chief on the list are leaders from Israel, Australia, Great Britain and Saudi Arabia.
What's worse, treating key allies like Germany as if they are no more important than minor states like Nigeria, Malaysia, Ukraine and Armenia. German Chancellor Angela Merkel was not even guaranteed a meeting with Obama until late Sunday and only after Obama saw the states listed above first. Is it any wonder German newspapers only report the "difficult friendship with Obama?"
What's Obama's problem? Is it something in his DNA where he can't help but treat our friends like dirt while kissing the ass of our enemies? Just look at the body language he displayed recently towards Israeli Prime Minster Benajamin Netanyahu. Then, recall the photo showing how he had the Dalai Lama tossed out the back door of the White House along with the garbage.
Absence of key U.S. allies at summit amplifies doubts about Obamas foreign policy

President Obama is holding one of the biggest global summits ever on U.S. soil starting Monday, but for all the hoopla, the event will be missing Americas strongest allies.

“Absence of key U.S. allies”, BUT these are Obama’s NEW “Allies”!
The Nations not attending ids this as nothing more than a photo-op.
Obama has allies besides Putin and Chavez?
The absence is cuzz obama has jumped the fence and taken America unknowingly and unwittingly to the otherside. To the far side where the G7/ allies are Americas soon to be enemies.
He has done what he can to this point to weaken the bonds and history.
Its about the destruction of the G7 and western civilizations successes and his new muslim outreach program... to empower islam.
Hussein views our traditional allies as “enablers” of reactionary regimes such as that of George W. Bush and just about all of his predecessors (Carter being an exception). Therefore they will be ignored, insulted, shunned and criticized.
Picture of the Chicago Mafia Chief addressing an old American friend, telling him how this Marxist cow ate the cabbage....in other words, a cheap bully not worthy of carrying water for Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu - obama is rude to a Grand leader of the free world.
Is the nation of islam there?
RE: The list of U.S. allies NOT at the “summit”: 3 out of 4 isn’t bad, I guess.
I do not consider Saudi Arabia to be one of our allies.
People attending this conference must be asking themselves....”Why is the President having private meetings with some and not with others? What deals are being made in these private meetings that others don’t know about?” This alone breeds distrust with this President. November must be looked at carefully by this country. The American people need to take back the the House and Senate if they are to control what this President does. Hopefully, the rest of the world understands that the American people do not agree with what this President is doing and they will not turn their backs on our allies.
Who do you think is providing “security”?
Remember there were two parts to obama’s “hope-n-change” and only one was as fake as his Greek columns.
All those past US “Allies” belonged to the time when America was “ruled” by the white man. He wants every mandate of “white man” America changed including its international allies.
exactly. Done deal for Barry.
What isn't? Simply put: he is not a friend to Western nations, and never will be.
“Why do so many of our friends and allies have a problem with Obama?”
Because THEY know enough to cover their a#@%s, even if WE don’t
Obama is like Carter was; it can be useful for a nation to be our enemy with presidents like them and harmful to be our ally. That’s the loud and clear message he sends.
Wonder what this party is costing us.
The pipple need to wake up and rise!
This is not America , nor its thought.
Just check the backgrounds of his “mentors” of many years. We’re getting a first hand look at how the Really “hard left” thinks.
