A World Without America


Pages: 1 2

Here we go again.

Even as Syria, Iran, Russia and China planned one of the biggest war games in Middle Eastern history, including 90,000 troops, 400 aircraft, and 1,000 tanks, the Obama administration was busily leaking more confidential information to the press endangering Israel’s national security. According to the Washington Post, “Western officials with knowledge” told the Post that the Flame virus, which helped cripple the Iranian nuclear effort, was a joint U.S.-Israeli project.

“The effort, involving the National Security Agency, the CIA and Israel’s military,” reported the Post, “has included the use of destructive software such as the so-called Stuxnet virus to cause malfunctions in Iran’s nuclear enrichment equipment.”

This is merely the latest in a long line of Obama administration leaks, many of which have violated trust with Israel, and all of which have undermined Israel’s ability to strike at Iranian nuclear development. Back in 2010, the Obama administration leaked information about Israel’s cooperation with Saudi Arabia to the press, quashing that program to grant Israel use of Saudi airspace for a strike against Iran. This year, the Defense Department leaked possible timing on an Israeli strike against Iran, as well as information on Azerbaijan granting Israel access to local airbases.

The Obama administration leaks, geared toward the singular goal of achieving Obama’s re-election, could, some observers think, become the match that sets the Middle East aflame.

Obama’s only goal with these leaks is to prevent Israel from striking Iran before the election. By the same token, Obama’s kowtowing to Iran, his inaction on Syria, his futzing on Egypt, and his silence on Russia all bespeak a candidate attempting to delay the course of events for as long as possible. If the United States takes no stand, Obama thinks, there will be no chain reaction of violence.

This perspective springs from both naivete and a post-colonialist worldview that suggests that international violence is brought about only by American action. If we just stayed home and let other countries handle things without our influence, the logic goes, the world will be a more peaceful place. This is the same philosophy that says that the War on Terror only bred terror, and that the American alliance with Israel only breeds Middle Eastern turmoil.

It’s a dangerous delusion.

  • Schlomotion

    This is some frightening writing. Day by day, Ben Shapiro sounds a lot more like Yigal Amir.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      But you sound a lot like a Sack of SHlTler.

    • stern

      Actually, it's your writing that's frightening. To think that today, people still believe the crap that you believe about THE JOOS, scares the living daylights out of me.

      • Schlomotion

        So build your wall higher.

    • Sage on the Stage

      ,,,and YOU sound like Josef Goebbels; you scare me to death, with your daily crapola of "Shoot the Messenger." Great article, Mr. Shapiro…the truth, and plenty of it.

    • JoJoJams

      Schlo ~ If you could take off your delusional ideological blinders of hate towards "THE JOOOOS!!", you would see that this is actually a very inciteful article based on the "reality on the ground" of human behavior, at the national level. The only thing I would add to this article is: The big O is also counting on these leaks to make himself look "strong" on national security, which has traditionally been a Democratic weak point. Look what we're doing behind the scenes, helping Israel to mess up the Iranians computers! I'm a big strong defender! ~ And there are millions of useful idiots that would thinnk just that, even while the reality is the rest of Shapiro's statements in this article are also coming to fruition. So, while the fools who can't find any wrong in Obama will eat this up, thinking he is making us stronger, he's actually making us weeker, per Shapiro's point – and anarchy will soon come upon the world.

      • Schlomotion

        It's "inciteful" all right.

        I believe you meant INSIGHTFUL. not inciteful.

    • Asher

      Listen up because we may not have much time to do anything about Iran. When Obama bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia it was to pay homage and say he had Israel and America's control in his sights. We have seen the destrution of our economy, national security, and Israel's attempts to stop Iranian tyrants from using nuclear weapons on the World. This has been the plan to hasten the Mahdi, Islamic Messiah through nuclear war and is no joke!

      • Indioviejo

        Then why in the world would Jews vote for Obama?

        • pagegl

          As my Jewish mother-in-law would say, "Because they're stupid."

  • Steeloak

    Obama's actions are not naive if you understand his marxist roots.
    You are right about his post-colonialism, however the full scope of his philosophy includes actively assisting the enemies of America bring down the American Imperialists. He envisions a world free of American hegemony, where America is just another country, and a weak one at that.
    As an Alinskyite Marxist he cloaks his real beliefs from the public, but his every action is consistant with overthrowing the American system he reviles.

  • PDK

    I must honestly disgree Ben. Obama hates America and Isreal and loves socialsm and Islam. He is doing as much damage as he can while he can.
    This is in step with his mother and maternal grandparents creation of Barac the anti American Messiah, and his black heritage of anti whitey, black, social justice theology.
    Obama is the great wreckingball smashing into the good ediface America and American allies.
    Americans, real Americans, might want to start thinking about two, mutually exclusive Americas. I believe American, founding fathers culture to be more valueable than the Union.
    One and done! Nobama 2012, vote republican. Thank you.

            Which is precisely what Obama, Holder, and their backers want.

  • SAM000

    State Dept. subcontracts his Middle East policy with the private companies named " Centers of Strategic studies".
    Ray Takeyh, Trita Parsi, and Amir-Ahmadi, 3 lobbyist of the Iranian Regime in USA have registered the "STRATEGIC STUDIES CENTERS" and State Dept. subcontracts them about USA's Iran Policy.
    State Dept. puts his intelligence services under those "Strategic study centers" and integrates in his classified intelligence the wrong-information provided by those "Strategic Study Centers".

    By this way, the USA SENSITIVE intelligences become transparent to the USA's enemies, and USA policy makers are fed with the wrong intelligences.

    Obama's Administration ignores deliberately the Nuclear Islamists danger and welcomes all kind of appeasements of the Mullahs, this level of pro-Islamist policy has increased and encouraged Mullahs nuclear danger.

    • Steve Chavez

      VERY GOOD INFO SAM. PLEASE KEEP US INFORMED OF OBAMA AND IRAN CONNECTIONS.

    Tunisians are growing increasingly alarmed about the presence of al-Qaeda supporters in the country.

    A recent video from a self-avowed al-Qaeda member called for holy war against the Tunisian government, raising fears among citizens that extremist violence could escalate.

      Youssef, what are you taklking about, Tunisians are Muslims and they are at odds with western principles, as all good Muslims are.

  • Grantmann

    Overall accurate and certainly disturbing, but I do take exception to this: "The rise of the Iranian nuclear program can be attributed largely to the Obama administration’s failure to support any real uprising in Iran, and its pathetic insistence that only the United Nations (packed with Iranian allies like Russia and China) can solve the problem."

    Much of this can be laid at the foot of W. He didn't do anything either and outsourced to the G-3 back in the early part of the decade. One of the Iranian negotiators acknowledged sometime around '05 or '06 (and pardon the 'senior moment' of forgetting who it was) to the effect that they knew they were only stalling for time and the Western negotiators and were laughing at us.

    This in no way is to exonerate the president as he simply doubled down on the fecklessness of the foreign policy and made it worse.

    • mlcblog

      Wasn't it during O's time that the Iranians people were in the streets with green flags trying to get more freedom? What I remember is our govt doing NOTHING.

      • Grantmann

        Yes, you're right, but your comment had nothing to do with mine, which was strictly regarding the nuclear program, not the attempted "green revolution."

        • mlcblog

          I thought it had to do with Iranian people trying to be heard by their govt and getting no backing from ours. I must admit I am not sure of the significance of those particular green flags, but I got the idea they were more political/Iranian than green.

  • sceptic

    Mostly a good synopsis, but this paragraph:

    "The rise of renewed Russian militarism can be attributed in large measure to the Obama administration and its pusillanimous “Reset” policy. The rise of Chinese interference in the Middle East has been accelerated dramatically by China’s newfound confidence in American wallflower-ism. While we pay their military budget with our debt, they ally with American enemies around the globe."

    Is pure nonsense. Russia's militarism is primarily a consequence of Russians' character, and Putin's in particular. Russia remains nevertheless, for all its bluster, essentially a toothless tiger. A Russian resurgence will require prosperity, not the present poverty, a much higher birth rate, and a longer median lifespan. As to China, what was that baloney about funding their military with our debt? How exactly do we fund the PLA by borrowing money? Please explain.

    • davarino

      The leaker in chief has done everything he can to give Putin the nod of approval by not deploying the missiles in eastern Europe, by negotiating fewer nuclear missiles than Russia, by not challenging them in their support of Iran, Syria. Plus we did get a glimpse of his true intentions when he was caught whispering sweet nothings to Medvedev on a hot mike. Oh you thought we forgot about that one aye?

    • Judas

      Not sure if you noticed, but that "toothless tiger" is now going against another tiger whose got it's own dental problems. Our "prosperity is in decline. At some point if the Democrats are successful in implementing Socialism here in America, the playing field will be leveled out.

    • kasandra

      The interest we pay the Chinese on our indebtedness to them will soon equal their annual military expenditures. That's how.

  • mrbean

    The very fact that Syria, Iran, Russia and China planned one of the biggest war games in Middle Eastern history, including 90,000 troops, 400 aircraft, and 1,000 tanks, tells us that Obama and hag Clinton are totally incompetent and incapable of running anything.

    • SAM000

      No, they are not incompetent, not at all, they are sharply competent, they do the personal business, Bill Clinton is one of the KNOWN BROKERS in Dubai for Iranian Business.
      Iran imports 70% of it's car fuels, and Dubai is the Biggest Middle east free Trade ZONE.
      Bill Clinton makes this kind of Business for the GULF countries, his best CLIENT is Ahmadinejad.

      Obama and his wife get the Commissions of the OIL companies.
      any instability in Middle east caused by the Islamist terrorism fluctuates the Oil Prices, the Oil Companies profits are multiplied by 16 due to the Islamist threat, OBAMA's inaction EMBOLDENS Ahmadinejad and Iran's proxies like Hezbollah of LEBANON, and the Oil prices raise.

      All the reactions of the Obama's administration are a part of the big deal.
      Chamberlain's Family during WWII were doing the same thing, they were payed for their appeasement.

      • mrbean

        Being shrewd as a criminal is not the same as intellectually competent.

    • mlcblog

      I think that's the idea….but as SAM000 is saying, this fits right in with O and all leftist plans. A weaker America. They cheer.

  • Steve Chavez

    It's those BEDTIME STORIES TO MICHELLE, who is more radical than Barack, if that's possible. The same was true for Bill and Hillary. Surely George would tell Laura a thing or two also BUT IT'S WHO THEY TOLD IN THEIR INNER CIRCLE. I would think Laura and Barbara would not even mention any bedtime stories but Hillary and Michelle are radicals who have sided with every traditional enemy of the United States since their university days and now they can reveal to them our deepest National Security secrets.

    But, Holder will get to the truth so till then, I'll just have my suspicions.

    • mlcblog

      Yer funny, Mr. Chavez. Thank you.

      We realize, too, that George and Laura were definite liberals, not conservatives for real, except in oh, maybe not drinking any more and being faithful to our wife.

  • Bartimaeus

    Good article. Our Nobel Peace prize winning president is helping to set up conditions for war in the Middle East and perhaps elsewhere. Putin of Russia must be seeing weaknesses in the Obama administration that he can exploit. He also continues the long held Russian desire to project political power into the Middle East. As the Russians are great chess players, I would not doubt that Putin might be thinking that now might be the time to start playing with more aggressive moves. At any rate, Ezekiel 38-39 cannot be to far down the road.

    In my trip to Algeria God is transforming the nation by bringing some freedom to Christianity to people by allowing them to have Churches under the protestant federation. The impact is being made within the Berbers, families will accept Christianity and making it their own personal faith, also within the Arab Algerian community there has been changes, for example a guy who I met wanting to become a jihadist and ended up accepting Christ because of the teaching of Jesus by saying, “Love your enemies”, but there has always been friction with the Arabs and Berbers

      The most stupid thing i've ever heard in my life is the line 'love your enemies'. If you love your enemy you will not fight him but surrender to him. If you surrender to your enemy you will likely be conquered, colonized and ultimately destroyed. It means that if you surrender to a hostile force you are in effect siding and collaborating with it. Collaborating with a murdering and raping enemy is the ultimate display of cowardice and treason. Love your enemy is ultimate sin in my books.

      I think this line is a misquote. Jesus might have said those words but in a some specific context. Jesus propably had an idea of stopping some mindless quarrel with neighbours or something like that. But the idea that when facing a murderous conquering army, for example, one desides to show some love to them is absolute madness.

      Life on earth is a practical business. Warring with evil is part of life and therefore practical business. Rational men are the best in pratical business. Use your brains brothers.

      I am sad you deteriorated your post with the non-necessary and abhorent "coon" repeated twice for no apparent reason than racial overtones. Otherwise, I could agree with you.

  • BLJ

    I have said it before and I will say it again. Barack HUSSEIN Obama is an enemy combatant of America. His actions and associations have demonstrated this all too clear. It continues to amaze me that they are still idiots in the U.S. who support this lowlife.

    I will gladly die before I ever bow to any a-hole from Russia, China, Iran, Syria or the rest of our enemies. I stand by Israel and pray to God that he continues to bless both America and Israel. We don't deserve it that is for sure.

  • onager

    Yes to Catharos. Affirmative Action is based on the premise that all people are really equal in all things which is guff and the leading example would be the imposter in the Whitehouse.
    His main goal is the destruction of Israel. Why? 1. It is a humilation to the islamic world by it's performance which has been brilliant. 2. It is a firm belief among some blacks that their dysfunction is institutionalized. O believes this and he wants to say to the hated Jews "See…your're not so hot afterall." 3. It is a firm belief among many(O) that with Israel gone there would be peace in the m.e. which is B.S.

    • mlcblog

      I think it's based on emotional favors to those "less fortunate" and who can influence the most voters.

  • Ghostwriter

    Unlike some others,I think President Obama is living in a fantasy world. He believes if we coddle nations and people like Iran,Vladimir Putin,and those like them,they'll be nicer to us. Sadly,he's mistaken. They hate us for who we are,not for what we've done. I've said it before,I'll say it again. We need leaders who live in the real world,not the Fairy Tale Land that those like President Obama inhabit.

    • mlcblog

      That's part of the leftist mind set, that fantasy that if we just don't pick up our gun to shoot, the runaway monster will not run over us.

    Imagine America reduced to a 3rd world country, we would not be helping any one anymore, especially Israel.

    We have all the friends we can afford to buy!

    This would be a good time to start pulling out of all the countries in which we have our noses and U.S. taxpayer money. We should cut off the funds we give them, reinforce our defenses here at home, put all of the troops we withdraw on our borders, get busy drilling for oil and natural gas, produce more coal, and strive for more renewable energy(with no taxpayer subsidies)! We should begin to keep within the states the amount of money sent to the Federal government, and send the Federal government the amount the states normally keep. To a man, all countries of the world hate us!! So I say, let them go on their own and let's take care of our own people. We are now being held hostage by the Islamists!! Let's leave the rest of the world to it's own devices!!

    Egypt will release results from disputed presidential elections Sunday, the country’s top elections commission official said — an announcement that will put an end to the country’s nerve-wracking uncertainty about who is the official winner, but promises no end to the power struggles between Islamists, the military and other factions.

    Article was to the point about ‘pusillanimous’ white house. If US retreats from the arena of global power game a new constellation of power will emerge. But the claim that “While we pay their (China) military budget with our debt” is ludicrous. US is not paying Chinas military expansion but China is. In addtition China is currently paying US trade deficits and federal budget deficits at the same time by lending to US economy.

    When one economic entity chooses to save ie. produce more than consume it will create create excess, surplus. Other entities in the same economic system then must borrow these excesses and invest and/or consume them. The choise of how other economies are using the available extra resources will dictate the economic success of their respective economies. Some economies will choose to invest in the future and their future will be more prosperous. Some will choose to consume and live easy today and not mind about the future.

    If some economy is so prosperous that it has zero debt and huge amount of assets (debt obligations from other economies?), it could make sense to live easy for couple of generations perhaps.

    On the other hand, if some other economy is already in debt up to neck and chooses to go more deep into debt, it will crash soon when the lenders stop lending.
