Laughing at Hillary & Obama

It's hard not to laugh when reading front page news today about Hillary, Obama & Iran. It's a carnival of foreign policy cluelessness. Here's Hillary,
“We see that the government in Iran, the supreme leader, the president, the Parliament, is being supplanted and that Iran is moving towards a military dictatorship.”
From this quote it appears that Clinton actually thinks the current government has some sort of legitimacy, and that we should worry about it being supplanted, as if it were just some normal state rather than a theocracy that conducted a sham election, and is currently engaged in a vicious repression of dissent.
she reiterated that the United States had no plans to carry out a military strike against the Iranian government.
Yeah, that's real smart. We are trying to pressure them on their nuclear program, but let's tell them that the only thing they actually fear isn't going to happen.
Her comments on Monday underscored the Obama administration’s determination to single out the elite corps as a way to curb Iran’s nuclear program.
Translation: They don't have the slightest idea what to do. Appeasement hasn't worked, and they are looking for some narrow way to impose sanctions and pretend they are actually doing something.
“We have bent over backwards to say to the Islamic Republic of Iran that we are willing to have a constructive conversation about how they can align themselves with international norms and rules and re-enter as full members of the international community,” Mr. Obama said in a news conference last Tuesday. “They have made their choice so far.”
Yes you have. And it was pretty stupid. How about waking up? Obama still hasn't figured out that Iran isn't worried about the so-called "international community." Their entire policy toward Iran is a big joke, and they still don't get it. 


  1. His policies are the failed policies of JFK towards the Cuban missle crisis and Bay of Pigs. Diplomacy. JFK tried negotiating with Nikkita Khrushchev and failed miserably. Khrushchev saw right through JFK and saw it has a sign of weakness. This is what caused extreme action in Berlin and the aforementioned Cuban missle crisis and the Bay of Pigs.

    You can't negotiate with ideologues or religious zealots. These people are willing to do whatever in the name of their beliefs. Obama could prevent WWIII by playing off the USA's strengths--our military. Obama needs to grow a sack and start bitch slapping Iran. He also needs to become a student of history so we aren't destined to repeat it.

    Also Iran sees right through Obama. They know its empty talk because you have Obama going to the middle east apologizing and sympathizing with them. This is why you see direct disregard from Mahmoud. He knows Obama is weak. I fear for my country.


  2. Obama has been projecting weakness and appeasement since he was elected (with the major exception of Afghanistan and Al Qaeda.) I don't see him changing. He appears to really believe in the power of empty talk.

  3. When I read that Obama actually said 'we have bent over backwards' to Iran, it really jumped out at me. I mean, here we have by far the most powerful country in the world literally showing itself to be feckless against at best a medium size state. If the US decided at 10 am tomorrow that Iran needed to go, it would be a giant hole in the earth at 10:05 am. I of course don't mean do this, I just want to point out how ridiculous this situation is. Hillary Clinton also stated that a nuclear-armed Iran 'doesn't threaten the United States'. That just isn't true. What a joke this situation is. It's just like our relations with China, by looking at the last year, one has to ask, 'who's the superpower here?'

  4. I know I use the word clueless a lot with regard to the Obama administration foreign policy, but I can't think of a better word. Obama is naive and inexperienced, but you'd think people like Hillary wouldn't be quite as bad. Obama's personal cluelessness seems to have affected everyone around him.
