Ross Kaminsky manages to perfectly describe the Obama administration's foreign policy apparatus, comparing to the legendary dog which chases parked cars. It bangs its head, is momentarily confused, learns nothing, and does it all over again. Yet, as Kaminsky goes on to point out, the administration has a dangerous (for America) method to their madness:
[...] President Obama has intentionally projected an aura of weakness, from his Mideast apology tour to his stabbing our eastern European allies in the back regarding missile defense. The world knows that America has a president who objects to American preeminence and strength, and he's doing all he can to make us just another nation. For those who didn't already believe it, the "more flexibility" moment with Russian President Medvedev was an unvarnished insight into the mind of the most anti-American president in this nation's history.
, the administration's apparent stupidity -- by which I mean inability to learn even from a painful lesson -- is equally well understood as a commitment to their goal of taking America down a peg in actual and perceived power. They're not just the stupid dog chasing parked cars -- though they are that in part. There's a method to their madness, and it's a method that has our enemies smiling as they stand around their uranium-enriching centrifuges while the Russians laugh all the way to the bank.As Kevin Jackson aptly noted at The Black Sphere back in February of this year, generally when a president has such a weak domestic agenda, he may be able to recover based on decent foreign policy. But this is not the case with Obama:
Obama's foreign policy has made America weak and the laughing stock of the world. It was said when Obama was elected that the world would love us, which is simply not the case. Obama has proven himself to be much worse than Carter in foreign policy, and Obama has created havoc all over Northern Africa and the Middle East. China and Russia are positioning to remove the dollar as the international monetary standard, which would devastate the U.S. economy. Their recent decision not to support the U.S. in the U.N. with respect to happenings in Syria prove that the Obama administration is not taken seriously. This will prove to be a huge influence on Obama's re-election chances, which is why he will try about anything to shore things up before November.... more
