The extreme naivety of our foreign policy makers toward countries like Libya and Egypt is not only embarrassing, it is dangerous and disastrous.
With yesterday's storming of American diplomatic offices in Egypt and Libya, the world is now watching the true colors of Islamists -- something that those of us with experience have known all along. Unfortunately the Obama administration has been doggedly colorblind to the Islamists' true colors.
We give Egypt $2 billion a year. We give Libya military and financial aid to topple their dictator. But what do we get in the way of thanks? Death and destruction.
Make no mistake -- these recent violent events will not be contained to those two countries. It will spread to many other countries that we have supported in the past -- supported with our money and blood.
The extreme naivety of our foreign policy makers is not only embarrassing; it is dangerous and disastrous.
As Yogi Berra once said: "It's déjà vu all over again." By that I mean it's "1979 Iran" all over again. In that year, another group of naïve amateurs ran our foreign policy, and their ignorance ultimately led to the storming of our embassy and the hostage-taking of American citizens for 444 days.
Here is the core of our government's ignorance: We assume that everyone is like us. That everyone responds with gratitude to generous gestures. That everyone respects us with the same respect that we offer them. That when we bend over backwards, they will show appreciation for our efforts to please them.
But not only would they never respond that way; they view our actions as unmitigated weakness. And with weakness they see an opportunity: the further humiliation of the infidels.

Bammy's a slimey slammy!
His skipping out of meetings of state are a GOOD THING!!!!
No matter what you do for or to a muslim, at the end of the day, you are still the infidel (or Jew).
Zero has painted himself in a corner. Ha can’t blow up tents, we all recall the bent one. It’s not like he can drone these people live on all networks.. His backers are getting tired of that. What he needs to do will get him a ticket to the world court.
The extreme naivety of this author - and virtually all media analysis - in endlessly ascribing "naivety" to an obvious step-by-step Leftist plan is getting EXTREMELY tedious.
‘Every moderate Muslim is a potential terrorist. The belief in Islam is like a tank of gasoline. It looks innocuous, until it meets the fire. For a “moderate” Muslim to become a murderous jihadist, all it takes is a spark of faith.’
