The Messiah’s message to Islamofacist centers have been sent!
The message was crafted and sent weeks before he was elected. No, it wasn’t Bidens remark that the world is going to seriously test Obama in his first six months (though that utterance has proven correct).
It was found recently that the Obama team has been negotiating along diplomatic “back channels” to State sponsors of terror in the Middle East (Iran & Syria). This was quickly followed up on with the flick of a pen in signing a Presidential Order to begin closing down guantanamo.
In addition, the President chose to give his first interview as the “Leader of the free world” to an Arab Satellite TV network to proclaim to the Islamic World that “America is not your enemy” (without qualifying that the enemy has never been with Islam but with “radical Islam”).
The Bush Administration went to great lengths to stress that Islam is a religion of peace though you would never know this from Obama. He also made a reference that the same respect and partnership that America had with the Muslim world as recently as 20 or 30 years ago, there's no reason why we can't restore that." This was probably in deference to Jimmy Carter and his single handedly ushering in the “Islamofacist revolution” in Iran. What he also meant was the same ol, same ol “pre-9/11 mentality that treats terror as a law enforcement issue.
Couple this with his proclamations that his administration will hold talks with Iran without preconditions (I hope he keeps to his word because it is Iran that is laying out the preconditions to holding talks with us).
With all of this “talking about talking”, what exactly has been the message the Islamist terror street received? It was weakness or more aptly put “the paper tiger is back”!
The Obama “foreign diplomacy” plan is a failed one even before it got out of the gate. It is not even just confined to the terror issue, but of every anti-American despotic regime that is piling it on. For instance, in addition to Iran dictating that we apologize for over 40 years of Iranian slights and that we accept that they WILL acquire nuclear capabilities let’s take a look at the last 3-4 weeks of news.
Kyrgystan has ordered the U.S. to close its air base at Manas, "a vital link in the supply chain to NATO forces in nearby Afghanistan," reportedly under Russian pressure.
Hugo Chavez likened Obama’s stench to that of Bush. Additionally, Chavez has held joint Venezuelan/Russian Navy exercises. In addition it is said that Chavez “has the largest and best-equipped standing army in Latin America, Russian submarines and fighter jets, Iranian missiles, uranium mines, Hezbollah and FARC training and rest camps, and a cocaine and money-laundering operation that makes Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme look like tiddlywinks” according to an article written by Michelle Rowan.
Russia has re-animated diplomatic relations with Cuba and has stated that it is considering placing missiles on the Island again ala Cuban Missile Crisis.
Yemen has agreed to take 94 Yemanese prisoners held at guantanamo when they are released.
Yemen released 170 men it had arrested on suspicion of having ties to Al Qaeda, security officials said Sunday, two weeks after the terror group announced that Yemen had become the base of its activities for the whole Arabian peninsula.
In Pakistan, Abdul Qadeer Khan, the father of nuclear proliferation, has been released from house arrest and freed to re-enter the world of international nuclear intrigue.
Leon Panetta tapped to be CIA Chief even though he has no intelligence or spy experience, though he was part of the Iraq study group that recommended changing course in the Iraq war.
Zawahiri calls Obama “House Negro” and blames him for Israeli incursion into the Gaza Strip.
President Barack Obama's executive order to halt all terrorist court proceedings at the U.S. Navy base in Cuba resulting in the charges being dropped against the bomber of the USS Cole.
It is no coincidence that these events are starting to transpire when, for eight years, president Bush had kept these despots in check by not only talking like a tough unilaterist cowboy but by his actions as a strong Commander in Chief that took this fight to the enemy. Like he said early after 9/11 – “We’ll hunt them down and either kill or capture these thugs. We will smoke them out of their caves into the sunlight.
