I Spy: Obama Foreign Policy Mess

By Ron Hart

JewishWorldReview.com | With all the mistakes made on domestic issues like the economy, ObamaCare, unleashing the IRS on political opponents, rampant regulations, deficit spending, etc., we forget Obama's disastrous foreign policy.

This is the man who was going to "hit the reset button" and make the world like America again. Instead, he has angered world leaders with his trademark aloof arrogance, slowly eroding his credibility.

Obama will soon meet with world leaders, where he will brief them on the breakup of Bruce Jenner and Kris Kardashian Jenner and on the status of the BCS. He has lost gravitas on pretty much everything else.

The attack on our consulate in Benghazi was not his fault; it was a sitting duck. But sending U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice out to blame it on an obscure, anti-Muslim video was telling. Chefs know: Rice goes with anything.

You know the press has your back when you concoct a story like that. Obama clearly thinks Israel and the U.S. are the problem. The next thing you know, his administration will label "Fiddler on the Roof" an anti-Muslim musical.

Maybe part of our problem with the Arab world is that our diplomats who deal with its leaders are women like Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice. If we have learned anything about Muslim leaders, it's that they love being told what to do by women.

The U.N. is worthless. If you want to hear a bunch of out-of-control, pungent-smelling foreigners argue and scream at people, just take a New York City taxi.

Obama puts his faith in the U.N. because it operates in similar fashion to his template: using the force of government to achieve a political shakedown for his corrupt cronies. Instead of intervening to stop despots and tyrants from killing their people, the U.N. finds it more profitable to become a global warming alarmist. If you can guilt the deep pocket U.S.A. into believing we are doing damage to third world countries with our carbon footprint, then you can extract money from us.

The buffoons at the U.N. have reported that sea levels have risen 58% faster from 1993 to 2011 than they originally thought. Their precise report says the oceans have risen about two inches. My guess is that Michelle Obama's college buddy will get a no-bid contract to sell us three-inch sandbags for controlling this "man-made disaster." Failing that, the Obamas might have to move their Martha's Vineyard beach chairs back two inches.

Obama was given a clear "heads-up" by Russian intelligence on the Chechnyen brothers who committed the Boston Marathon bombings. There were more loud red flags in that case than fly outside the United Nations building in N.Y.

With his NSA snooping, (which he says he knew nothing about), Obama has recently angered France and Germany. France is always miffed, but to snoop on respected world leader Angela Merkel of Germany? She was livid. It's time for self-reflection when the country that brought the world the SS says you have gone too far.

In an apparent strategy to bore our allies into seeing things our way, John Kerry is Obama's new Secretary of State. While a Senator, Kerry married the wife of billionaire Senator John Heinz (of the ketchup fortune) only months after Heinz's death. With financial instincts like that, he might have better served our country as an economic advisor.

The one hope I had for Candidate Obama was that he would quickly extricate us from these two awful wars of occupation. Instead, he tripled the troops in Afghanistan. Then he tried to go to war with Syria. For the next Mideast war, we need to insist on "shirts and skins" so we might know whom we are fighting -- even if we don't know why.

Last year he overturned President Clinton's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy so gays can serve openly in our military. When we do march out of Afghanistan and Iraq, I presume that Neal Patrick Harris will host, and the troops will march out in an impeccably choreographed Conga line, stopping only occasionally for twerking. "A tour de force!" will rave the New York Times!

On the positive side, Obama gave a UN speech indicating he was changing our Third World policy. He plans on promoting free markets and commerce rather than just giving money away. Should this new policy succeed, he might try it in the U.S.A.
