U.S. foreign policy failures with Russia and Israel continue
President Obama and Joe Biden further weaken America’s world image and piss off an ally .. all in one day.
Days after two Russian fighter jets buzzed a U.S. warship, Obama had a phone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The two world leaders discussed the disaster that is Syria, but Obama didn’t bring up the dangerous and provocative flyover according to the White House.
“That did not come up in the call between the two presidents”
White House Press Secretary Josh Ernest said that Putin and Obama had an intense discussion over the failed cease-fire in Syria but on the subject of the overflight, he said “That did not come up in the call between the two presidents.”
President Obama’s unwillingness to show strength against the Russia is not without precedent. When Putin confiscated a portion of Ukraine, the administration’s response was to prevent few Russian companies – including the makers of AK-47 rifles – from importing into the U.S. or having access to U.S. financial institutions. It is doubtful that Kalashnikov Concern is having any issues selling AK’s to the middle-east and sub-saharan Africa.
If projecting weakness wasn’t enough for our fearless leader – we go pouring salt in the wounds of our allies.
Just hours after a terrorist bus bombing in southern Jerusalem injured at least 21 people, Biden spoke to a George Soros-funded, Palestinian-aligned group and condemned Israel’s prime minister.
“I firmly believe that the actions that Israel’s government has taken over the past the past several years — the steady and systematic expansion of settlements, the legalization of outposts, land seizures — they’re moving us and more importantly they’re moving Israel in the wrong direction,” Biden said.
Did the terrorist attack on innocent civilians move someone in the right direct? How about when, in 2000, Israel offered Abbas a Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza and part of east Jerusalem and the Palestinians responded with a terrorist war?
Biden’s outrage is an expression of frustration at something else. A brokered peace between Israel and Palestine was to be a hallmark of he and Obama’s leadership, but their methods have produced nothing.
Speaking of failed foreign policy in the middle-east, it might be better served for Biden to turn that finger inwards – Syria, Libya, Iraq – yeah, those are all moving in the right direction, huh?
