Game of Fools - Obama’s rejection of Israel is about to have very loud results
American Spectator ^ | November 11, 2013 | Jed Babbin

President Obama’s foreign policy record remains intact. Across the world from which he is withdrawing American power and influence, governments are recognizing that where once a superpower resided, now only a shadow remains.

First it was left to the Communist Chinese to admonish us against spending too much. Then they began a campaign to replace the dollar as the reserve currency of the world. The French led us into Libya because they needed to protect their oil interests there. Then Vladimir Putin bamboozled Obama into an agreement on Syria which goes against America interests by enabling Assad to remain in power while Iran flexes its muscles there. And that was after Putin suckered Obama into a new nuclear arms agreement that went against American interests and prior well-thought-out policies.

Now, Obama is eagerly chasing Iran, like a puppy chasing a ball, seeking an agreement that would relieve Iran of economic sanctions without doing anything to slow or stop Iran’s march to nuclear weapons.

The agreement that Vichy John Kerry — along with the rest of the UN Gang of Five Plus One — was about to foist off on the world as a great achievement toward peace was one that would have benefitted only Iran and those nations that choose to trade with it (some in violation of U.S. and UN sanctions). It has now thankfully been torpedoed by, of all nations, France.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius — not to be confused with American war-mad cowboys such as Ronald Reagan — called the proposed deal with Iran a “fool’s game.”

Fabius was being too diplomatic. The deal engineered by Vichy John Kerry would have begun by relieving Iran of...

-——governments are recognizing that where once a superpower resided, now only a shadow remains.-——

This is not a true statement. The foreign governments are now expressing the long known fact that America has a naieve fool for a leader. The super power status is not an issue

Obama’s foreign policy record is unblemished by success.

Obama is knowingly endangering us all for what he considers our past sins.

Obama is pro-Islam.

Islam is antithetical to America.

Islam is irreconcilable with America.

As there is no possibility Islam can ever change, the destruction of Islam is unavoidable.

Islam Delenda Est - because of what Islam is and because of what Muslims do.

Let the nuking begin with Mecca, Medina, and all Islamic cities on any size.

Fuel air bomb the rest.

Israel is going to have to take Iran out .... I hope they can do it successfully, not just wound the beast, because Obama will stand on the sidelines and give them no help. Love the author’s use of the moniker “Vichy John” ... very appropriate.

When Kerry announced this endeavor, I laughed out loud. As a lifelong resident of MA and a hostage to Kerry for years, I can testify that he is well recognized in the Commonwealth as a feckless fool.

And to think, Kerry speaks French.

This must have been a real kick in his face.

Once again, President You Didn’t Build That has aligned America with the forces of evil and idiocy against the forces of decency and civilization.

Looks like a pattern, not a hiccup.

I do not agree with Syria. Staying out of this is the right thing. Supporting either side means supporting radical islamists. It is not our fight.

The gall to use chemical weapons as the pretext for almost getting involved is astounding though.

Osumbo’s policy is NOT America’s policy, his is only a temporary ruling. Soon, when he is gone (hopefully forever), the world will easily recognize who we were, who we are and who we will be again.

Don’t sell the U.S. down the drain just yet.
