US President Barack Obama’s Middle East policy is in ruins. Like no president before him, he tried to win over the Arab world. After some initial hesitation, he came out clearly on the side of the democratic revolutions. … In this context, he must accept the fact that he has snubbed old close allies such as Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Egyptian military. And now parts of the freed societies are turning against the country which helped bring them into being. Anti-Americanism in the Arab world has even increased to levels greater than in the Bush era. It’s a bitter outcome for Obama.”
Obama was naive to believe that one only needed to adopt a new tone and show more respect in order to dispel deep-seatedreservations about the free world. In practice, the policies of the Obama administration in the region were not as naive as they may have seemed at times, and the Americans have always been much more involved in the Middle East than the passive Europeans. But Washington has provided the image of a distracted superpower in the process of decline to the societies there. This image of weakness is being exploited by Salafists and al-Qaida, who are active in North Africa from Somalia to Mali.”
“One thing is clear: If jihadists believe they can attack American installations and kill an ambassador on the anniversary of Sept. 11, then America’s deterrent power has declined considerably. For a superpower, it is not enough just to want to be loved. You have to scare the bad guys to keep them in check.

America's government education system has succeeded in dumbing down a large portion of the American people as it was intended psychologically and emotionally conditioned to accept propaganda without any critical thinking. The old divide and conquer tactic utilized in political correctness, multiculturalism and the diversity scam has been more successful than the cultural Marxists in the Frankfurt school could have ever hoped for in deconstructing Western civilization. America is heading for a real hard economic landing and a very rude awakening and what we have in Greece could happen here in the US, and that will destabilize the entire world fiat money system, it's only a matter of when! If America is to survive it must return to its founding principles, the problem is that far too many Americans couldn't even tell you what those principles were.
I'm afraid you are right. Our country is in a really bad way with no real leadership. I believe that weakness invites attack and that is what we are seeing. Our own people are like sheep and I wouldn't be surprised if President Obama isn't reelected. The media, unions and leftists are all conspiring to keep him in power.
This has been Obama's "Desert One" moment. Hopefully, like it was for another failed President, it is the end of his Presidency.
Well nice to know someone out there is not sucking up,but the Europeans need to bare their fair share of responsibilities as well. They fell for Obama as well and help push his "we are all citizens of the world, can't we all get a long if we suck up to our enemies" clap trap as well.
