Posted on 03/31/2014 1:08:54 PM PDT by jazusamo
Japan recently turned over to the United States enough weapons-grade nuclear material to make dozens of nuclear bombs. This was one of President Barack Obama's few foreign policy "successes," as part of his nuclear disarmament initiative. But his foreign policy successes may be more dangerous than his "failures." Back in 2005, Senator Barack Obama urged the Ukrainians to drastically reduce their conventional weapons, including anti-aircraft missiles and tons of ammunition. Ukraine had already rid itself of nuclear missiles, left over from the days when it had been part of the Soviet Union.
Would Vladimir Putin have sent Russian troops so boldly into Ukraine if the Ukrainians still had nuclear missiles? The nuclear disarming of Japan and Ukraine shows how easy it is to disarm peaceful nations making them more vulnerable to those who are not peaceful.
Ukraine's recent appeal to the United States for military supplies, with which to defend itself as more Russian troops mass on its borders, was denied by President Obama. He is sending food supplies instead. He might as well send them white flags, to facilitate surrender.
Critics who say that President Obama is naive and inexperienced in foreign policy, and blame that for the many setbacks to American interests during this administration may be right. But it is by no means certain that they are.
Another and more disturbing possibility is that Barack Obama, in his citizen-of-the-world conception of himself, thinks that the United States already has too much power and needs to be deflated. Rush Limbaugh, Dinesh D'Souza and some other critics have seen Obama's repeated sacrifices of American national interests as deliberate.

One thing we can all agree on. We’re in deep trouble with Obama in charge.
I’m sold on the idea he is deliberately crippling the USA.
I have to agree. If there were only a couple of these incidents it might be different but there’s been dozens.
and our allies...
PS Anyone really believe Japan does not have a huge stockpile left over? They have no nukes, but they probably have rows of parts that when simply clicked together become nukes. The Japanese are NOT stupid...
A definite pattern is forming.
Putin has exposed him as a hollow man.
Maybe by not being able to deal with such a hollow man we have been exposed as a hollow nation.
God help America to prosper and turn to Thee in faith. Forgive us LORD for our blindness to what has happened, and the direction America is being led. Thank fully we bow before Thee for Thy Grace, Love, Mercy, and goodness, and ask for forgivness, In Jesus name, amen.
