Mr. Obama & John Kerry's Foreign Policy Blunders Continue

In his fight against our #1 enemy, Climate Change, Mr. Obama drew a red line on the weather map, but the storm went right across it...WH Press Secretary Tweet (satire)

I've often written in the past that Mr. Obama erased his red lines only to be replaced by red lines soaked in blood. Unfortunately, my observations of this administration's failed foreign policy have usually been right on target. 

As most of the world now knows, under Obama, the United States is no longer feared or respected. The evidence is overwhelming. For example, when the Iran Deal was finally negotiated, many of us knew---almost instinctively---it would be a huge blunder.  Last Sunday, Iran announced it had tested a new precision-guided, long-range missile. Yesterday, Iran broadcast footage of an underground missile facility. The facility houses launcher units as well as missiles.

Several weeks ago, the Obama administration touted its new relationship with Cuba. This week, it's being reported that the Cuban military sent troops to Syria to help Russia and Assad fight Syrians rebels. Now ponder this. These are many Syrian rebel troops we're supplied in the past. As I wrote just a few days ago, Putin appears to have outflanked Obama again.

And then there's John Kerry's insult of Israel. It's his State Department's official position that both sides should restore calm. Yes, both sides. In the last two weeks, Israelis have been dealing with random stabbings, shootings, fire-bombings and even cars ramming Israeli pedestrians on the street. In one very disturbing video, pedestrians are struck down by an SUV at a bus stop. As a Rabbi lay dying, a thug jumped out of the vehicle and begin stabbing the Rabbis multiple times until an armed citizen showed up and took one of the terrorist out. By the way, from the pressititutes in our media? White Noise. And when they do report, they portray Israel as the aggressors as MSNBC did earlier this week and as its done in the past. But they are not alone. This from the IDF (Israel's Defense Force):

  • Oct. 15: Attacker stabs Israeli citizen near Jerusalem bus stop. Assailant shot on site (by the way, my favorite phrase)
  • Oct. 13: Assailant runs over and stabs four civilians at bus stop in Jerusalem. Attacker shot on site. There as an earlier attack that day at a bus stop in Jerusalem. Attackers were shot on site.
  • On the same day, a rocket landed in the Golan Heights.
  • Oct. 12: Assailant attacks Israeli soldier and civilian at a bus stop. Assailant shot on site.
You get the picture. This has been going on for over a week now. And to add insult to injury, the UN always sides with the thugs and not with Israel. And if you recall, Israel pulled out of southern Lebanon in early 2000 and Gaza in 2005. What's the outcome? Those areas now have 1000's of missiles aimed at Israel. It's as if America and the UN want Israel wiped off the face of the map. After all, in the past seven or more years, this administration has been cradling our enemies while antagonizing our allies.
