American virtue, free speech and renewal

The Obama spell doesn’t seem to work anywhere but here.

Posted by foundersfreedom on May 25, 2009

So Obama was what the world awaited?  Perhaps, but not for what he and his sycophantic media friends were selling during the election and everyday since.  The real truth is that the marginal players on the world stage wanted a weak President to capitalize on.  The weaker the U.S., the easier it is to make gains on their own homefronts.  With all that’s transpired in Washington since about day two of this administration, the World Apology Tour and the incredible amount of debt he’s piled onto an already precarious financial situation, the enemies of the free world are making huge strides. 

Look at it like the new administration has viewed our financial crisis, not one to let go to waste.  As Obama has grovelled for our enemies’ approval (of his narcissistic self – not America), they smell the weakness like sharks in the water.   Two of the emerging threats have been flexing muscle like there’s no tomorrow and if one of them, Iran, has it’s way, that just might be the case if we don’t take them seriously. They’ve been prediciting it for a couple years now. 

Sadly, I believe the rest of the Western world, France, the UK, etc. have given up.  They hated that George Bush made them come out of hiding to take a stand against a real threat to their way of life.  Their hope was that Obama would do just as he’s doing, not taking a position of strength, but one of going along to get along. 

Iran and North Korea are two of the most tyrannical and despotic regimes on the planet.  If they’re allowed to continue unchecked, what are the next “wanna-bes” planning?  Russia, certainly a wanna-be before their Olympic Games opening day attack on Georgia, is watching and playing.  We also know whose side they’d be on in a conflict.

China, the brutal communist dictatorship, is in the catbird seat and watching with glee as they may be replacing the US as the world’s only superpower.  Sad, but true.

But we were told that there would be a new day for the world when he would treat everyone as a potential ally rather than adversary.  Could it be we’ve been snookered?  I guess his puppetmasters, Soros and whoever else runs the show, might have overestimated the reactions of those that hate us, our religion and our success as a nation rather than just the President in charge at the time.  They hate Obama just as much as GW Bush.  The ideologues are too vain to see it.  Rose-colored glasses are not meant for these unstable times.

From Fox News

Iran thumbs nose at the Apologist-in-Chief twice.  First the launch of a missile capable of hitting Europe and now sending it’s Navy into an internationally sensitive area to strengthen “territorial integrity.”

Obama had better hurry with those unconditional talks with the terrorist Iranian thuggocracy.  They’re running out of ways to flip us off. 

         Iran has sent six warships into international waters in a move security experts are calling a “muscle flexing” show of defiance         following missile tests last week.  

 

“Iran has dispatched six … warships to international waters and the Gulf of Aden region in a historically unprecedented move by the Iranian Navy,” Iranian Adm. Habibollah Sayyari told a gathering of armed forces officials, Reuters reported.

Sayyari said the ships were moved to preserve Iran’s territorial integrity in its southern waters, but foreign policy experts are calling it an aggressive move targeted at a Western audience as much as for regional powers like rival Saudi Arabia.

The deployment is “a signal of military strength, resolve and continued defiance to U.S. and U.N. Security Council efforts to end the impasse over Iran’s nuclear program,” said Jim Phillips, senior fellow for Middle Eastern Affairs at the Heritage Institute.

“What’s very important here is the timing of this move — and this naval muscle flexing comes after Iran’s missile test earlier this week, which was saber rattling that was meant to send the same signal as this naval dispatch.”

Phillips said Ahmadinejad was using the opportunity to thumb his nose at the U.S. and U.N. to advance his own popularity in Iran ahead of the country’s hotly contested June 12 election.

Iran’s naval access stretches along the Gulf of Aden, the Strait of Hormuz and the Sea of Oman. Iran has threatened to block the strait, through which about 40 percent of the world’s traded oil is shipped, if it were attacked over its nuclear program.

Nearly 20,000 ships pass through the Gulf of Aden each year, heading to and from the Suez Canal, Reuters noted. Seven percent of world oil consumption passed through the Gulf of Aden in 2007, according to Lloyd’s Marine Intelligence Unit.
