Killing Bin Laden is not Foreign Policy

OU lost and this blogger needs to vent. Who else to take it out on then President Obama? I can't take it out on K State, they played flawless, and no one would listen if I did anyways. I digress, one of the things that is heavily in the media right now is President Obama's foreign policy record. It's much like his fiscal policy record, terrible. Why you say? Because just like the economy, we're worse off then we were four years ago.

We're out of Iraq you say, we killed Bin Laden you say, I say back that we couldn't have left Iraq in a much worse condition had we just dropped a M.O.A.B. on Saddam's house. The only reason we got Bin Laden is because of our presence in Afghanistan, remember the place that the Prez said when he got in office he'd be out of in a year? So on to the facts:


"tens of thousands of protesters clashing with police in Pakistan. And get this! It was the Pakistani government, who is supposed to be our ally, that called for today's protests."

"Under generations since Franklin Roosevelt, we have followed a "peace through strength" policy, that America's strong place in the world, politically, economically and military, help protect our interests. Barack Obama has reversed that. He believes in withdrawing American influence. He thinks we are too much in the world and that the world would be in a better place with a receding, declining America. I think that's a prescription for disaster, both at the level of grand strategy and in any number of imminent threats we face."

"On June 4, 2009, in Cairo, Obama promised “a new beginning” offering Muslims “mutual respect,” unsubtly implying previous disrespect. Curious, as over the previous 20 years, the U.S. had six times committed its military forces on behalf of oppressed Muslims, three times for reasons of pure humanitarianism where no U.S. interests were at stake."

" And his policies of accommodation and concession would consolidate the gains: an outstretched hand to Iran's mullahs, a first-time presidential admission of the U.S. role in a 1953 coup; withdrawal from Iraq with no residual presence or influence; a fixed timetable for leaving Afghanistan; returning our ambassador to Damascus; creating distance between the U.S. and Israel."

"Sovereign U.S. territory is breached and U.S. interests are burned. And what is the official response? One administration denunciation after another — of a movie trailer! A request to Google to “review” the trailer's presence on YouTube. And deputies' midnight “voluntary interview” with the suspected filmmaker. This in the land of the First Amendment."

"What else can Obama do? At their convention, Democrats endlessly congratulated themselves on their one foreign policy success: killing Osama bin Laden. A week later, the Salafist flag flies over four American embassies, even as the mob chants, “Obama, Obama, there are still a billion Osamas.”

SO... I thought we were electing this guy because he was "cool" and Europe and the Mid East liked him. Well those days are gone! Well, not totally, Europe still loves him. Especially Russia! Didn't his Mom and Dad meet in a Russian language class? Just a side note, no conspiracy theories on this blog, just the facts : )

This from uber-left wing website Huffpost:

"After three years of attempts to repair Washington-Moscow relations and appeasement of the Kremlin, the Obama administration now has to deal with an even more anti-American, aggressive, and assertive Russian leadership than in 2009."

Don't forget this little moment when President Obama didn't know his mic was still on: (30 seconds)

He does point out that Mitt Romney thinks that Russia is our biggest enemy... and that he doesn't think they're a problem at all in his speech at the convention:

Not to mention the fact that he abandoned Poland and Western Europe when he caved to Russia on missile defense:

You mean the Russia with more nuclear bombs then us? You mean the Russia who is blocking our blockade on Iran? You mean the Russia who's the #1 supplier to China's attempt to unseat us as the world's currency for oil? You mean the Russia whose aiding extremist Muslims to take over Syria (who has nukes already)? Oh, that's right, it's that Russia...

We all have seen in the news how he's treated Israel. Not talking to their PM when he was in the states and being on Letterman instead. They removed Jerusalem from the DNC platform. Put an ambassador in Damascus, etc, etc, etc.

The bottom line reality is this, he's anti-American influence, expansion, and colonialism ( the establishment, exploitation, maintenance, acquisition and expansion of colonies in one territory by people from another territory). Here's what he said about his own grandfather who advanced himself due to English colonialism and appreciated it: “My image of Onyango, faint as it was, had always been of an autocratic man—a cruel man, perhaps. But I had also imagined him an independent man, a man of his people, opposed to white rule… What Granny had told us scrambled that image completely, causing ugly words to flash across my mind. Uncle Tom. Collaborator. House nigger.”

If that's how he feels about his grandpa, what names has he called President McKinley who "colonized" Hawaii, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines.

Don't forget the scariest foreign policy move in my humble opinion:

I hope that you're never categorized as "being in a terror group"... so much for the due process that our citizens are guaranteed by the 5th amendment.


  1. Nice rip!! I agree with you completely. Taking Paden, my 14 yr old son to see 2016:Obama's America today. He will graduate high school in 2016 and also be old enough to vote. What frightens me is what kind of America will he be voting in and who will the candidates be?

    1. What kind of influence will we have? Who will align themselves with us? Will the world turn into the multipolar chaos that ensured the beginning of WW1 and WW2 with just a small domino falling. So many questions, so little answers.

  2. Pretty astute. You a smart man Jason Swann.
