I realize this is from Thomas Friedman at the New York Times. I only noticed it because it was referenced on Drudge. But my question prompted by this and other things I've read: Does anyone know what are foreign policy is these days? I don't recognize it! I can't tell who the bad guys are and who the good guys are.

"as the keystone of the entire region — Syria"

I'd suggest that Egypt is more likely the keystone.

Obama isn’t having a nightmare, he’s busy with his jihad against unbelievers

The big difference is the guy in the WH hasn’t a clue what to do. His main intent was to get re elected. He left four people to die. By the grace of God, and in fact the bravery of two of these men, 30 more Americans were not killed or made hostage.

I hold my breath, because it’s clear any day it will erupt. Does anyone NOT believe that the current assault on Israel is happening because of Obama’s reelection? This is just the beginning. They’re pushing Israel into war to test what Obama will do...

This is Obama’s dream come true—to destroy the US economy and to weaken us globally. Obama and the LEFT have worked very hard to get these results.

US foreign policy: Foment chaos, overthrow secular dictatorships, advance the Muslim mob, advantage the Muslim Brotherhood, prepare the way for the Creation of the Greater Caliphate, weaken Israel and encourage those who would attack her, run interference to give Iran time to perfect their nuclear weapons, ... That's a start on the Obama foreign policy.

The Antichrist will arise during Middle East war involving Israel and economic upheaval. He will be referenced with ‘messianic’ terms. He will be politically successful and hailed by the world. Just sayin’.

Obama’s Nightmare

Most of the problems cited stem from the naive and sophmoric foreign policies of the 0bama - klinton State Dept.

For A REAL NIGHTMARE, they should ask the families of the four men 0bama watched die at Benghazi while he didn't raise a finger to help because he was more concerned with his fund raising trip to Vegas.

Hussein’s foreign policy is to be flexible with the Russians and to give aid and comfort to Jihadists.

Our foreign policy is obvious...Appeasement to our enemies, alienation of our allies, and deception for those in the US.

Obama and his buddies are making money off of war in the Middle East.
Read the three part story on The Chicago Connection at chicagopaytoplay.com. Read Aaron Klein’s stories at WND. Look up RESPOSIBILITY TO PROTECT. Look up THE INTERNATIONAL CRISIS GROUP and see who is on their board.....George Soros.
Benghazi is inconvenient to Obama because it’s part of his bigger scheme to make money off the suffering and death in the Middle East.

The difference is that none of those other presidents caused war. They just had to respond. Obama directly fueled instability in eqypt and libya and it is now spilling over to other areas.

The problem with our foreign policy is that we can’t admit what it is: promote Islam and destroy the US. That’s essentially Obama’s goal, and the people under him are terrified of him and are carrying out his orders.

The Petraeus episode is not a “scandal” or “sexscapade,” but is being made to look like one because it is simply the way Obama has chosen to rid himself of someone who may have been complaisant but suddenly, when he saw Americans being sacrificed for this policy, woke up and said no.

Obama planned to hold the “scandal” over Petraeus’ head to control him and then get rid of him if he was the GOP’s candidate for VP, but he wasn’t.So Obama, favored by Satan, actually discovered an even better use for it.

This is not Obama’s Nightmare, this is Obama’s wet dream - this is actually part of the Arab Spring and the continue rise of Islamic chaos in the Middle East. It is the part of the rise of the Islamic prophet to return because of the chaos. The Islamic prophet is the Christian/Jews ant-christ, watch because will the precursor of things to come - rise in oil prices, more discord in America.

What foreign policy? Just ask Valerie Jarrett, she’s running the country through the auspices of Iranian apeasement.

Three questions for Benghazi-Coward Obama:

1.) Are you HIDING INFORMATION from the US Congress about the Benghazi Massacre?

2.) Have you been LYING to the US Congress, The Media, or the American Public about the Benghazi Massacre?

3.) Were you, as Commander in Chief, GROSSLY NEGLIGENT about your responsibilities to protect and assist those four Americans who subsequently were murdered in the Benghazi Massacre?

BTW, the large cap words were the same as the 3 charges handed down yesterday to BP for punishment of their Gulf of Mexico underwater blowout, a while back.

Since the US Government is going to hold a company accountable for their poor decisions, then it should hold its CIC accountable his poor decisions, AND use the same legal charges.
