Get d'Clu

Get a clue & wake up! The best way to lead a nation astray of its values is to keep it ignorant of its history.

Missile Defense

Whatever you believe regarding our continuation to defend eastern Europe, my thought is that we should have at least not pulled out on the anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia.  If the Obama administration is truly that stupid as not to realize, I cannot believe.  The alternative; however, is to relize they are utterly cruel.

Some key articles and vids regarding the BO’s foreign policy.

Barack Obama is gambling with Europe’s security
Telegraph (UK) View: a prudent defence policy guards against every realistic menace

Comments:

Don’t come crying now. It was the Europeans who were so in love with Obama, if I remember correctly. You people hated GWB, who would have kept you safe. So, deal with it!! –Jim

Europe now boasts that it is the richest region in the World, and yet we want America to pay for our security.  We have the money to pay for our own missile security system and to expand the European forces is Afghanistan to 20,000, but we love our spoilt life and will not cut back on our little indulgences.  The rich and feeble are an invitation to robbers. –N. J. Mustoe

Although, I agree that Europe needs to ante up on its own defense, this is weakness personified. It’s not even somewhat believable that the latest intelligence changed his mind. His excuse is shortsighted and ridiculous. There will be no meaningful concessions from Russia, and we can expect the US and her allies getting rolled again and again… –Chuck Dickens

I just can’t understand this. Wasn’t Obama an experienced Neighborhood Organizer? Hadn’t he been in the US Senate for all of 155 days? Isn’t it a fact that the US voters knew nothing about this man or his beliefs? Gosh, who could have guessed he was a black Jimmy Carter? —J Ronish

Once again Young Barack’s being taken to school.
There is not a chance that Putin’s band of thieves will put any pressure on their business partners in Iran. Doing so would hit them in the most sensitive spot: their personal accounts, into which flow a goodly portion of any state-supported deal, whether for materiel or technology or civilian equipment.
So, to review, Obama expected the House of Saud to lead the arabs in reciprocating the concessions he’s pushed on Israel. The saudis laughed at him.
Obama expected Ahmadinejad to make serious concessions in return for his dropping any pressure on Iran’s nuclear program when he assumes the UNSC presidency. Ahmadinejad is laughing at him.
Obama expects PutinMobutu and his fellow thugs to forgo many millions of Iranian quid for his quo of abandoning missile defense. The Kremlin’s ringing with laughter now.
Why did anyone believe that this naive and oddly arrogant young man would not get eaten alive by the world’s jackals? —thibaud

If my memory serves me correctly, wasn’t Mr Obama favored by overwhelming margins of the European peoples? You advocated leftist governance, and now you cry over the consequences? As a member of the the vast 48 percent of the American public who did not vote for Obama, let me say how gratifying it is to see the very people who lusted for his election now showing remorse.

And let us not forget that had he been defeated we would have been greeted with headlines in the British press about how stupid we were.

The EU is just as rich as the United States. Build the missile defenses yourselves. It really won’t matter anyway. In a few short decades Muslim majorities will rule your countries and European civilization will just been facts in a history book. –Michael Oliver
New Missile Defense Plan Is a Losing Proposition
By Baker Spring & Mackenzie Eaglen

 
Flashback: Obama Pledges Missile Defense Against Iran In April
Remarking in Prague, April 5, 2009: “So let me be clear: Iran’s nuclear and ballistic missile activity poses a real threat, not just to the United States, but to Iran’s neighbors and our allies. The Czech Republic and Poland have been courageous in agreeing to host a defense against these missiles. As long as the threat from Iran persists, we will go forward with a missile defense system that is cost-effective and proven. (Applause.) If the Iranian threat is eliminated, we will have a stronger basis for security, and the driving force for missile defense construction in Europe will be removed.”

Say one thing, do another strategy.
