Obama Gives the Finger To Poland and the Czech Republic

The Messiah today used the most twisted Orwellian Newspeak to defend his scrapping of fixed missile defense systems for the former Soviet-era states in Eastern Europe:

"This new approach will provide capabilities sooner, build on proven systems and offer greater defenses against the threat of missile attack,"
What "new approach, you may ask? This "new approach":

Under the new plan, the US would initially deploy ships with missile interceptors and in a second phase would field land-based defense systems.
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev hailed the decision, which removed an issue clouding US efforts to enlist Russian support on Afghanistan, Iran and nuclear arms control.

"We value the US president's responsible approach towards implementing our agreements," Medvedev said in an address shown on national television. "I am ready to continue the dialogue."
Critics accused the White House of dangerous weakness.

Senator John McCain, the Republican presidential candidate who lost to Obama in 2008, blasted the move as "seriously misguided" and former US ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton, a leading Bush-era hawk, was scathing.
"It's just unambiguously a bad decision," Bolton said. "Russia and Iran are the big winners. I just think it's a bad day for American national security."

You bet it's a bad day for American national security, just like the guy who should be secretary of state said. And it's little consolation to Poland and the Czechs that The Messiah wants to put a cheaper missile defense system on ships that could be hundreds or thousands of miles away when they are needed to defend them. If we are truly interested in national security and making good on our commitment to defend democracy around the world, why wouldn't we just do both? And a better question is why Russia was even worried about these missile batteries unless they intend to launch missile strikes in Poland or the Czech Republic? An even better question is why in God's name does The Messiah want to kiss the Russian's asses? What possible good can come of it? Here are the answers to these questions, respectively:

* Obama doesn't want to do either: he just uses the bald-faced leftist lie that a cheap ship-based system will make us safer to cover for the fact that he doesn't want to do what we know works: Missile defense of the type we were planning on installing that has been increasing its reliability with every test.

* Russia is rapidly heading down the road back to the old Soviet policies Reagan defeated 20 years ago and communist expasionism is a part of that plan. There is no reason for them to oppose this missile defense unless they have designs on dominating the sovereign nations of Poland and the Czech Republic once again.

* The Messiah wants to kiss Russian butt because it fits with the namby-pamby leftist foreign policy of dissing your friends and talking to your enemies in the hope that if you are really, really, really nice to them that they'll be really, really, really nice to you. This doesn't work, it has never worked, Russian has never given up the old Soviet desire to "bury us" and having the Russian president say good things about us is a bad thing. They are laughing their asses off at our weakness right now.

* No good can come of this. The world is a more peaceful and safer place when the United States is strong and makes it known that we will defend democracy around the world. We use our strength for good unlike any other country in the world and if we're not defending democracy, democracy will die. The Obama foreign policy doctrine is even more dangerous than the Clinton foreign policy doctrine that brought us the last worst terrorist attack on our soil in the history of our country. God knows what Obama's foolish foreign policy will bring.
