Obama’s National Security Wrecking Operation

President Obama’s stewardship of the national security portfolio to date amounts to a wrecking operation, a set of policies he must understand will not only weaken the United States but also emboldens our foes. After all, the Communist agitator Saul Alinsky, a formative influence in Mr. Obama’s early years as a “community organizer,” made Rule Number One in his 1971 book Rules for Radicals: “Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.” 
 
According to this logic, the various steps Barack Obama is taking with respect to the armed forces, the foreign battlefields in which they are engaged, our allies as well as our adversaries will not only diminish our power. They will encourage our enemies to perceive us as less powerful – with ominous implications. Consider some illustrative examples:
 
 
This message is, of course, being strongly reinforced by the treatment he is doling out to nations in each category. 
 
 
Can there be any doubt what America’s adversaries make of all this? Great grief will come our way if they conclude, as Alinsky surely would, that our power is waning, and that they can exercise theirs with impunity against our interests – and those of whatever friends we have left.

It’s not a question of weakness. It’s a question of favoring our enemies deliberately, because he is a Communist Muslim.

And this article doesn’t even mention that Obama has deliberately insulted England and France, and has given Ireland the impression that he is an idiot.

Why has no Muslim anywhere issued a Fatwah against Obama for abandoning the Muslim faith into which he was born? Because he has, presumably, assured them behind the scenes that he is a Muslim.

The Obama administration is cutting the defense budget by 10%... The President is on a path to denuclearizing the United States by refusing to modernize the arsenal or even to fund fully the steps necessary to assure the viability of the weapons we have... For good measure, Mr. Obama is mounting a frontal assault on the armed forces themselves. The President plans to repeal the law prohibiting homosexuals from serving in the military... The effect will be to break the all-volunteer force... adoption of a deadline for withdrawing most U.S. forces from the former and his signaling that... he is preparing to turn the latter over to the oxymoronic-dubbed "moderate" Taliban... Under Barack Obama, it is better to be a foe of America than one of its friends... Friends like the Poles and Czechs have been left in the lurch as the Obama administration intimates that the United States now thinks Europe does not need after all to be defended against Iranian nuclear-armed missile threats. Not since Jimmy Carter abandoned the NATO deployment of so-called "neutron bombs" has a President conveyed such a devastating message of weakness and irresolution in the face of hostile threats to our European alliance partners... Israel is on notice that its security interests are going to be sacrificed... Britain has been told it neither deserves nor has a "special" relationship with the United States... the Obama administration... will reward Iran. Syria can expect the Golan Heights and removal from the terrorism list even as it pursues nuclear arms, renews its overtly colonial hold on Lebanon, supports the terrorists of Hezbollah and helps its abiding master, Iran, destabilize Iraq... Russia gets to be treated like a superpower again while it arms Iran, inserts bombers and naval units into our hemisphere, wields its energy leverage against our friends in Europe, Ukraine and Georgia and squeezes our supply lines into Afghanistan... no repercussions for China as it makes a mockery of the administration's beloved Law of the Sea Treaty... Obama... keen to embrace those in the Muslim Brotherhood and like-minded Islamist organizations who seek to impose the toxic theo-political-legal program authoritative Islam calls Shariah on distant populations -- and insinuate it into our country.
so, what's the problem?
