Abject Surrender In Dead Of Night
IBD Editorials ^ | September 17, 2009 | INVESTORS BUSINESS DAILY Staff

Posted on 09/17/2009 5:25:45 PM PDT by Kaslin

Strategic Defense: With Iran on the verge of a deliverable nuke, the administration tells our allies in the dead of night that we will scuttle missile defense plans in Eastern Europe to please the Russians.


Czechs are used to betrayal by their Western allies. It was at Munich in 1938 that British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain sealed their doom in exchange for a piece of paper promising "peace in our time."

The fact that this further gutting of missile defense came on the 70th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Poland on Sept. 17, 1939, is an eerie coincidence.

"Just after midnight I was informed in a telephone call by President Barack Obama that (his) administration had decided to pull out from the planned missile defense shield installations" in the Czech Republic and Poland, the Czech Republic's interim prime minister, Jan Fischer, said at a Thursday news conference.

Coming after the Russian invasion of Georgia and Moscow's efforts to destabilize that prospective NATO member as well as Ukraine, it bolsters Russia's efforts to rebuild the old Soviet Union's sphere of influence and sends the message that the U.S. can't be trusted as an ally that can keep its promises.

In March, Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski noted that Poland had taken "something of a political risk" in agreeing to the deployment of 10 ground-based interceptors on its territory.

It can't be a coincidence. I am seriously beginning to consider the possibility that this guy is not simply a stupid leftist, a useful idiot or even just a traitor.

Perhaps he really is the Manchurian candidate or the Antichrist. ( I can't believe I just wrote that )

He is simply a man who grew up hating Americans, especially successful white Americans, simply because of childish beliefs that he didn’t fit in.

The man is one sick puppy with a lot of hatred for mainstreet Americans built up all his life.

Now this is the first thing he’s done that is really frightening.

It’s like he’s trying to alienate all of our allies and leave us totally isolated!

If he starts bringing down the defenses of the homeland, it’s time to get ready for the REAL march on Washington!

As the sign said...’This time we came unarmed...’

The United States is trustworthy, it's that liar 0bama who stabbed Poland in the back.

I swear that sometime in the late part of the 1980s that I read an editorial in Commentary magazine that stated that Putin was a revanchist whose objective for Russia was to revert back to the control and exploitation of the third-world nations through a ‘to-be-formed tripartite’ alliance of the then unnamed three ‘super-powers;’ is this the beginning of that unverifiable imputation?

Who, then will be the 3rd party nation?

His hatred of American values is not due to his not fitting in as a child. This man was raised in the inner circle of Chicago communist politics, was influenced and assisted all his adult life by leftist and is just following his instincts. He owes his beliefs to the likes of Frank Marshall Davis, Thomas Ayers (Bill's father), Saul Alinsky, Rev Wright and Valerie Jarrett.

I don't think he's like Chamberlain at all. Chamberlain at least believed what he was doing was for the greater good. He was a fool, but he wasn't evil. Obama hates western civilization is doing all he can to destroy it. He is evil!

Hard to accept this timing as a coincidence, along with the contemptuous ‘midnight’ call. It does, however, have an eerie symbolism about it that was associated with WWII initiatives of the Third Reich. Very disconcerting.

“Childish beliefs he didn’t fit in” — in the most racially mixed region of the land. He was getting force fed with this nonsense by his commie grandparents.

And puppets don't give up their Blackberries.

And puppets are heavily dependent on teleprompters.
