Barack Obama blames US Navy for increased North Korean tensions.
Red State ^ | 4/7/13 | Moe Lane

Posted on 04/07/2013 10:47:54 AM PDT by Nachum

Ever notice that this administration is only lightning-fast when it comes to shifting blame when things don’t work out perfectly? They practically left a vapor trail in their zeal to anonymously accuse the US military of being responsible for our tense situation with North Korea:

So, it’s the Navy’s fault that the U.S.-North Korea spat has gone so far?

That’s the apparent message from senior administration officials who, according to the Wall Street Journal on Thursday, said that they had long planned to send B-52s, B-2 stealth bombers, and F-22 fighters to the Korean Peninsula as part of preplanned wargames with South Korea, but that they had not planned the recent deployment of Navy destroyers.

Last weekend, the U.S. ordered two guided-missile destroyers to the Western Pacific — the U.S.S. John S. McCain and the U.S.S. Decatur — to provide additional defense against North Korean ballistic missiles.

In his usual childish manner, Barry Soetoro blames somebody else for his screwups. The Obamanoids love it!

Thanks for posting the article.

"So, it’s the Navy’s fault that the U.S.-North Korea spat has gone so far? "

No. It's the US and NK 'public' who were made aware of the ship's movements by the MSM (and Internet). This was made clear in another 'similar' article recently posted on FR.

It's our fault.

The first thought that entered my mind when I read the headline. I didn't even have to read the rest before coming to the same conclusion.

Please, comparing President Obama to Captain Queeg is an insult and a slander to fine officer, with a long service record, who may have had personality quirks, but who rendered honorable and loyal service to the United States.

Captain Queeg's a fictional character in a play, and... well so is Obama.

There is far less than zero probability that the Navy ordered those destroyers into that region without explicit clearance from the White House, by someone speaking for the President. Delegating authority does not relieve one of responsibility.

Herman Wouk served in a DE during Typhoon Cobra (”Halsey’s Typhoon, the typhoon of 1944) and knew whereof he wrote. Queeg was a “composite” character, who exhibited in excess some of the characteristics of an inadequate commander in a crisis.

Read from the original. As much as I dislike Obama, that statement isn’t blaming the Navy. It’s just saying the other actions had been planned for some time.

Cowardly, weasely,lying, phony American Chicago sewer denizen.

I want a military man as Commander-in-Chief not some scrawny little fairy wanker who hasn’t done anything significant other than frequent bath houses, smoke dope, and lie like hell. He had to make up stories about having a girlfriend.

He is an experiment gone wild! He spends money like it belongs to someone else. Isn’t that strange?

How he was able to father those two girls will remain a mystery known only to himself and the wookie.

No, dereliction of duty.

I've heard the quote attributed to Henry Ford, "It's amazing what a man can accomplish if he doesn't care who gets credit."

It is right down embarrassing how little this Obama person really is....he was even blaming someone or something while he was missing hoops playing basketball recently. Barry and Hillary are really a pair to draw too....together they made huge mistakes in that area over the last four years.

Several different quotes to keep in mind about Obama, use at your leisure.

“The most deceitful persons spend their lives in blaming deceit, so as to use it on some great occasion to promote some great interest.” Francois de La Rochifoucauld (1613-1680)

“Blame is a lazy man’s wages.” Danish Proverb

“draw the Curtain, the Fraud is over.” Francois Rebalais

Obama wasn’t born here so he doesn’t know:

A commander-in-chief is the person exercising supreme command authority of a nation’s military forces.

According to Article II, Section 2, Clause I of the Constitution, the President of the United States is commander-in-chief of the United States Armed Forces.

Which goes to even further embolden our enemies including North Korea. They certainly know the US Navy doesn’t move ships around without authority especially into politically sensitive areas.
