Foolish and clueless is a bad combination for foreign policy. Next Obama will send his Acorners to Tehran to serve as human shields to thwart the coming IAF storm.

Yes.

I think that the White House is in a panic. Such complete reversals of standing foreign policy are typical of the nutty stuff that presidents under political pressure do.

But as far as I can remember, we have never done such with two different political entities in the same day. This indicates to me that the political pressure must be overwhelming and that the White House has utterly lost its bearings.

“Methinks it’s not a coincidence. I really hate to think what that may actually mean.”

IMHO, it has an exactly 1/365 chance of being a coincidence.

I am not a math major, but announcing this AND the North Korea meet on 9/11 is about a 1/133,225 chance of being a coincidence?

Obama, whatever the odds, your message is being received loud and clear. By friend and foe alike.

So he CHOSE 9/11 to do these two things in order to maximize SYMBOLISM:

He is trying to send the message loud and clear that WHAT WAS STARTED WE ARE NOW CONTENT TO BRING TO A CLOSE.

Honestly —would YOU want to be humping gear out in the field now..? KNOWING that you’re part of something that he essentially DOES NOT WANT...?

Remember those 4 Marines who got waxed the other day in Afgh cuz of no air support? Because of sensitivity and all that, because of those fuel trucks the other day?

THIS DOES **NOT** LOOK GOOD.

The whole Arab world (to say nothing of Jong Il) will construe this as weakness, and we will get WORSE treatment, not better treatment —just wait.

I cannot imagine anything more than this more sharply inducing Israel to strike Iran.

If they don’t do it NOW...? They simply never will, nope.

“This should stimulate Israel to launch a strike. We are no longer a dependable ally.”

To offer up a slight but significant clarification, the Obama administration is no longer a dependable ally.

The significant Christian majority of the US public is, and I would submit Israel knows this in its heart.

Interesting parallel, but in this case we have a rancid effeminate “king” in command. However, our warriors remain unbowed.

Makes for an interesting story line, n’est pas?

And to concede this Atrocity of Diplomatic Weakness on the Day We Mourn Our Losses of September 11, 2001 is OUTRAGEOUS!
First, OBOZO declares Our Day of Mourning a Day of Community Organizing with the Dispicable ACORN and Van Jones Trash running Parties and Barbecues and the POS OBOZO painting some crap building wall instead of traveling to Ground ZERO!
Then, of all days, OBOZO puts AMERICA’S PRIDE and POWER between It’s Tail and Lets Both the MUSLIM TERRORISTS of IRAN Pee on Us and the LITTLE FAT PIG of North Korea on the same Hallowed Day!

WHAT NEXT? AMERICA!! The DEMORATS ARE DESTROYING AMERICA! while We argue if Representaive Joe Wilson be forced to Kiss Piglousy’s Butt for telling the TRUTH!

“In a crisis, the American public can not order military support for Israel.”

True. There are other ways to provide support including the spiritual.

Something the Obama administration is unknowing of.

History has a way of repeating itself.

God Bless the Police, Firemen, Military, and civilian heroes of 9/11. We will never forget.

This is very bad news . . .

Obama could instruct his appointed representative to make a deal to allow Iran to manufacture nuclear material. I do not expect that 0 will appoint Hillary to go to Iran. She is a woman and would lack gravitas with the Mullahs. 0 has no doubt already received instructions from Putin.

The net effect of such an agreement would be to diplomatically isolate Israel.

No doubt Israeli PM Netanyahu has already heard this news directly from Vlad Putin. The weight of the world must be weighing on his shoulders right now.

If 0 does what you are predicting, it will be the end of the world as we know it now. Another president tried to change the world to this degree once before. It did not happen.

The planetary political system is controlled chaos. If one part of it fails to play it's role, the chaos becomes uncontrolled and cannot be put back into it's former state.

These Moonbats who are in control now, have a greasy, sticky strawberry jam encrusted hand on a very delicate trigger. This could be absolutely devastating in it's outcomes.
