Skip to comments.Barack Obama’s massive Middle East mea culpa
Posted on 06/04/2009 11:19:46 AM PDT by markomalley
- Obama attacked the decision to go to war in Iraq - "a war of choice" - it "reminded America of the need to use diplomacy and build international consensus to resolve our problems whenever possible" etc, without even mentioning the fact Saddam Hussein was failing to comply with several Security Council resolutions. This was completely gratuitous, wrong and unnecessary. There are still over 100,000 American troops fighting in Iraq, and this kind of message will only serve to undermine morale. As President, Obama should have paid tribute to his own soldiers who are putting their lives on the line everyday in a war against Al-Qaeda-backed insurgents. The United States does not need to apologise for removing a brutal dictator from power and liberating over 20 million Muslims from tyranny.
-Obama did not address the scale of the Iranian threat, or Iran's support for terrorism, or UN sanctions against Iran. Obama made no mention of the fact Iran is arming, funding and training some of the terrorist groups in southern Iraq responsible for killing American and British troops.
- The president drew a hugely controversial parallel between Jewish suffering in the Holocaust with the current plight of the Palestinians.
- Obama used the word "occupation" to describe the Palestinian refugee camps, a term more commonly used by Israel-hating UN or EU officials when attacking Israel.
- Once again the president brought up the Guantanamo/torture issue in front of an international audience, part of a ritual exercise in self-loathing that has become a hallmark of the Obama administration.
- Obama did not once use the words "terrorist", "terrorism" or "Islamist". When you are waging a global war, you have to identify who you are fighting against - in this case the free world is fighting against...

obozo’s (rahmbo) rope-a-dope
Yep. 2008 = the year the media died.
Our street agitator president (SAP)
Obama Bonds With Arab Street
Take out Saddam or get another 9-11. Easy choice.
This is disgusting...... Now I understand the Roman army policy of utterly removing all traces of an enemy. Removing all references in text, removing all buildings, salting the earth so nothing ever grows there.
This Presidents name is destined to become synonymous with the worst of American politics and on the level of dog poop.
It is said that he can oonly be separated from his Fraudi Arabian master with a crowbar..
Rush is calling them the state controlled media.
(SCM) I supposed that's pronounced scam or scum
It was the usual Obama Marxist drivel, but that comment that any world order in which one nation is more important than another will fail, scares me. Big time. This cult-leader President of ours is DANGEROUS.
I noticed he called it the “holy” Koran. Has he ever referred to the Bible as “holy”? A book (or anything) is only “holy” to those who view it so.
I believe that the Office of the President of the United States is vacant at the moment. He hasn't demonstrated that he is constitutionally qualified to serve in that office and until that happens, we have a pretender.
When is a representative of Islam going to apologize for the rape, murder and conquest of Christians and their lands? When do we get Constantinople back?
What scares me is all the people in the US who will convert to islam because President Tut was one, and still is.
Should we expect more shootings like we did in Little Rock?

(2) used by the Arab savages as fodder for fake outrage
That was an isolated “senseless act of violence” that had no other context beyond that single incident.
And one more thing.
Is America more important than some other nations. Damn right. We and our allies saved Western Civilization — more than once. We’ve liberated the oppressed, fed the hungry, and been the Light on the Hill. The remains of our young warriors are spread around this globe, and they died to protect, not to conquer. Is the United States of America head and shoulders above the rest? I think so.
The world is turned upside down
I agree. What has the Middle East ever given the rest of the world. Oil is the only thing I can think of and we developed that for them.
Does anyone know how all Obama’s trips compare to the trips by other Presidents during their first 6 months in office? Seems like he is constantly going somewhere; and changing it to us. Not a good time for these budget busting trips, not to mention the dates to NY!
That is the objective. Obama wants to make sure that the war in Iraq is a complete failure. He will destroy morale as part of his plan to weaken the US military. Of course, this will send orgasms of surrender throughout the multicultural left. It doesn't matter what they are surrendering to, as long as it has nothing to do with the traditions of the West. Surrendering to Islam as good as surrendering to anything else. But when are the woman on the left going to start wearing burkas?
I missed the speech...did he say he was going to lead Islam to modernity?
“Once again the president brought up the Guantanamo/torture issue in front of an international audience, part of a ritual exercise in self-loathing that has become a hallmark of the Obama administration.”
It’s a hallmark of American liberalism.
A) A delusional megalomaniac absolutely convinced that he has been “chosen” to solve all of the world’s problems.
B) A radical America-hating Marxist intent on destroying the United States as we know it.
C) The biggest idiot to ever hold the office of President of the United States.
D) All of the above.
I can go with A and B. I think Brother Jimmuh still has him beat on C.
2 muslims arrested for having explosives in their car
4 newly converted muslims in NYC plot to blow up post offices, military planes...
LR incident with newly converted muslim.
Not really isolated is it? We can expect more to come.
Oh, I was just giving the “official Obama” line on those issues...
Yes, from the Obamunist himself.
It is holy only that it is suitable for use in many of the one person occupancy wooden mosques that are found in rural areas. They are easily recognized by the crescents on them. Probably, they are Shi’ite..”Please don’t squeeze the Charmin’!”
The Telegraph is becoming one of my favorite media sources.
LOL. I misread the response.
It is also important get out in order to give these morons a chance nuke each other before their nukes are advanced enough to cause a nuclear winter.
No one in the MSM will dissect this speech in Cairo. 1. He is fullout using the Muslim roots as a prop . Jake Tapper now has proved that just yesterday. 2. He still has not mentioned the Black Muslim who murdered the Army recruiter. 3. He never mentions the fact that over the last 20 years the USA has aided Somalia, Afghans, Iraq, Kuwait, Georgia and Indonesia plus aiding natural disasters. 4. He invites Sunni terrorists from Egypt to his speech. 5. He disses Israel with moral equivalence to the Holocaust and the Pals. 6. He lies or has historical idiocy when he says Muslims have contributed many things that he mentioned that were NOT historically true. 7. He panders to tyrants like Hamas, Hez et cet. He thinks the Pals are are just fine. 8. He never mentions the fact that Islamofascists hate females and do not give them rights. 9. Lies that the USA is one of the largest Muslim nations in the world.10. Never asks the Muslim world to change their ways which might modernize them.
This is right on target. Excellent observations/points.
“Rush is calling them the state controlled media.
(SCM) I supposed that’s pronounced scam or scum”
skim works, too. I am sure they are both 1) paid and have 2) skin in the game in more ways than 1
Wait, wait. Now it’s Tut’s TOTUS?
March 20, 2009 = Chicago: Muslim arrested for threatening Jewish school
July 2, 2007 = Florida Muslim arrested after shouting “Allahu akbar” and “I am going to blow this place up”
Plus 100’s more....
I think W will go down as the last President of the United States
What happens when we start shooting Back ?not advocating anything, for discussion only
“What happens when we start shooting Back ?not advocating anything, for discussion only”
We will all be locked up before that happens. Pre-crime applies only to “right wingers.
We have less rights than muslims, drug gangs, etc.
It’s given us some fine horses. Those and oil are about the only good things.
0’s disdain for US citizens and this country couldn’t be more obvious when he calls reaction to attack on US soil on 911 an overreaction. In his mind, we should have welcomed sharia to stop any further attacks. Let’s see if that will be his solution when it happens on his watch.
