The great fallacy of progressive foreign policy is the assumption that other nations and ideologies are reactive. If we treat them well, they reciprocate. If we treat them badly, there’s blowback. That’s why the Reset Button didn’t work in Russia, but it did set the stage for a series of Russian humiliations of Obama
Muslims staged attacks on US embassies and consulates in the Muslim world. In Cairo they tore down the American flag and tried to replace it with a black obscenity that read, “There is no God but Allah and Mohammad is his messenger”. In the newly liberated utopia of Libya, they murdered an American consulate employee.
Even though Obama ran in 2008 on a promise to make the world love us again, this time around he’s taking a page from Bush by ignoring the world and trying to run on a national security record. His multiple failures in global diplomacy don’t give him the option of running on his record empowering Islamists, but his national security record is just as bad.
Leave it to Ron Paul to make Obama look like a hawk.
Ron Paul’s descent into self-parody continues. Earlier this week, the newly official presidential candidate offered his unique take on the mission that killed Osama bin Laden.
We knew this was coming. No American victory in this day and age, not even the long-overdue death of terror mastermind Osama bin Laden, is safe from political hijacking by the useful idiots of the Left. Within hours of hearing the good news, left-wing Daily Beast flunky Peter Beinart took to the keyboard to declare that the War on Terror is finally over.
Not even the Man of Steel can combat the forces of cultural Marxism. Superman no longer fights for the the American Way.
