Barry Rubin Obama

BARRY RUBIN: OBAMA PROVES THAT HE DOESN’T UNDERSTAND THE BASICS OF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS……..

There’s a remarkable exchange from a May 2009 presidential press conference that is extraordinarily revealing.

Question: “Aren’t you concerned that your outstretched hand has been interpreted by extremists, especially [Iranian President Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad, [Hizballah leader] Nasrallah, [Hamas leader] Meshal, as weakness?”

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, it’s not clear to me why my outstretched hand would be interpreted as weakness.

Yes, that’s the problem, isn’t it? I have often written that Obama does not accept the most basic principles of international relations.

Also includes discussion of the worldview of a leader from Egypt’s most important “moderate” party.

  1. The entire liberal mindset of softness and butt kissing does nothing but create massive economic and political chaos in the future. History shows us that only strength and political will (i.e. balls)l are the only thing respected, not spineless pandering and groveling at the feet of our adversaries.
