Overall, it has been hard to define any underlying strategy to Obama’s wild & unconventional foreign policy reactions. Clearly Realpolitik is in effect, as there’s little discernable moral high ground or sweeping American exceptionalism to be found in these weird machinations and appeasement efforts spanning the globe from Jerusalem to Honduras, or from Tehran to Venezuela or Poland.
What we have seen are enormous doses of moral & cultural relativism washed down by chunks of appeasement to unsavory nations & characters, all usually at the expense of America and allies.
Video: Remember when?
Obama’s top National Security Adviser Samantha Power of Realist & Harvard fame - Hey, let’s send American troops to Israel in order to protect Hamas & the Palestinians from Israeli Genocide!
The realists are on the rampage in Washington it seems.. Buoyed by a President well known during the campaign as a foreign policy Mr clueless (one infused with radically left liberal influences for good measure), a President himself now being being described as weak & timid.
Nothing Pleases Realists More than a Good Israel Bashing!
Israel is the Realist obsession.
Carter, Brzezinski, Baker all of ‘em realist heavyweights are well known ‘Israel Lovers’. Chas Freeman, of the House of Saud is another big Israel proponent.. and of course who can forget the realist philosopher king and co-author of the Israel Lobby smear, Harvard’s very own Professor Walt?
You can’t forget them because they are always there, either tapping or at times loudly banging the squeeze Israel to oblivion drum.. it’s a central tenet of realist policy it seems.
Here’s Walt admonishing Obama for not schooling the naughty Israel child even harder this weekend.
It’s a robust fantasy piece where he asks such burning questions as:
- “Why is Netanyahu defying Obama so openly?”
- followed by the riveting “Why is Obama letting Netanyahu thwart his efforts?”
The real question we should be asking is why are Walt & his realist pals all so eager to destroy the American Israel alliance? Or perhaps, why are so many of Washington’s prominent realists all seemingly Israel haters? Maybe we could all debate how it is when the nonsense they are peddling fails strategy wise, those who call for the sacrificing of allies like Israel proceed to then blame (again..) Israel? Convenient.
You know, take the gloves off and shoot directly at America’s allies in order to appease a Nuclear Iran! Crazy old man talk? Not for a realist Israel hater. For such an individual the notion of American air force pilots engaging with and firing at Israelis is a dark and deep fantasy that seems so normal it can just be expressed out loud, casually in the cause of Realpolitik as Brzezinski advocates this weekend:
“We are not exactly impotent little babies,” Brzezinski told The Daily Beast in an interview published Sunday.
“They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch? … We have to be serious about denying them that right. That means a denial where you aren’t just saying it. If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a ‘Liberty’ in reverse.”
The USS Liberty was a US Navy technical research ship accidentally struck by the OAF on the fourth day of the Six Day War, after being misidentified as an Egyptian warship. [...]
Yeah! All of it goes nicely with the latest Ahmadinejad genocidal speeches, or Carter himself calling everyone racists for not worshipping ‘Mr. my policies are craptacular in chief’ like he does. In the end, we need to get tougher with those damn Jooz, they are walking all over us & our Arab benefactors.. er I mean President Obama. We aren’t ninnies or fairies, we’re Jooo haters dammit and we need to start acting like it! No one ‘wishes for it’ per say, we just fantasize about it.
Nothing to see here, move along.
This is like Kennedy, who didn’t kill that poor young woman.. He just drove her into the lake and left her there to drown / die. There’s a big difference on the left, you have to look at the Realpolitik! Incidentally, Brzezinski is no pioneer. Plenty others on the left long ago joined the Israel Derangement Syndrome crowd. This UK Socialist leader was calling on America to attack Israel in defense of Iran moons ago. He must also be a hate.. uh, Realist.
Reminds me also of Mr. Garlasco of HRW, who doesn’t advocate for Germany in WWII per say, he just fantasizes about it & collects Nazi medals.. Or Pat Buchanan who’s not a Nazi apologist, but rather a ‘historian of Hitler’ – Pat just ‘fantasizes’ about all kinds of alternate WWII scenarios you know, for historical purposes.
Meanwhile, Israel’s deputy FM Danny Ayalon puts all the fantasies squarely away, and states Israel’s military option is on the table. Someome better notify Carter, uh I mean Obama.. and scramble those US fighter jets out of Baghdad for the interception..
