With his economic house of cards looking particularly wobbly in the US, Obama has headed out to continue his charade of an international campaign over to Europe. There we were treated to a gushing media fawning over his generic speeches, which naturally always highlighted his own uniqueness and "historicity".
Not only did Obama bizarrely try to dictate to the EU who their members should be, urging them to let Turkey in, a presumption that ranks right up there with France suggesting that Haiti should join the US as a State. But Obama as usual was posing for the Muslim world, and in the process tweaking Europe some more.
The brokered deal that has Anders Fogh Rasmussen becoming NATO Secretary General in exchanging for apologizing for Denmark's freedom of speech, to the Muslim world, which isn't a fan of free speech when it comes to making fun of Islam, only when it comes to calls for the genocide of non-Muslims, is one more gift to the Islamists. The Danish cartoons represented a first world heritage of free speech that has been bargained away yet again.
With a Turkish Vice Secretary General for NATO, Obama has certainly helped do his part for the Muslim way, though just as when he bowed to the Saudi king, there were no signs of recognition or gratitude. But that has not stopped Obama from insisting that Europe bow to Islam, just as he has.
In Afghanistan and Iraq, Obama has dropped any talk of democracy. It's natural enough why the man who was elected thanks to ACORN voter fraud, mass media propaganda, racial huckstering and an economic crisis manufactured by his own backers-- would not be a particular aficionado of democracy. But that has been matched by a growing "partnership" with Iran.
And that has meant a broad spectrum of appeasement toward Iran, from legalizing sexual assault for Shiite women in Afghanistan, backing the UK's Hizbollah outreach plan and arranging to give Iran a great deal of power in Afghanistan and Iraq.
And of course Obama's guarantee that the US will prevent Israel from taking out Iran's nuclear program, and muscle out strong concession from Israel to Obama's new Iranian allies and their proxies, Syria, Hamas and Hizbullah.
Meanwhile Saudi Arabia has its own pricetag for reining in its Wahhabi terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan, to create "peace" long enough for Obama to hang a "Mission Accomplished" banner, withdraw the troops and turn over the country to them.
Little wonder that Europe had few troops to offer for Obama's Afghan plan. After Obama had deliberately ignored and insulted our European allies, the rejection was inevitable. But once again Obama had little sincere interest in soliciting troops from Europe. What he really wanted was to demonstrate to America's foreign policy establishment that Europe could not be counted on, requiring him to make even more concessions to win Iranian cooperation.
And that's how the game is being played. Obama's real message to Europe and Israel is, "BOW BEFORE ISLAM", and his timetable for demanding that obeisance is speeding up. The closest possible analogy to the Obama Administration is had a Communist President taken power in the 60's. Under Obama, America's power is turning into a tool in the hands of our enemies and a sword at the neck of the free world. Terror has taken up residence in the White House to the loud cheers of a gulled public little realizing that in Obamaspeak, Change means Submission and Hope means Islam.
