The Emptiness of Obama’s Foreign Policy, He’s WORSE Than Neville Chamberlain

There is one expertly crafted sentence in news coverage of Obama’s witless “negotiations” with Iran over its nuclear ambitions that explains perfectly Obama’s total fecklessness in foreign relations.

Reuters reported this amazingly nonsensical *paragraph:

Negotiators have a tentative agreement on the rough outline of a possible public statement on the progress they have made so far that would also highlight areas of disagreement, diplomats close to the talks said.

Notice what this paragraph says. It is reporting that negotiators have agreed on a “rough outline” of what is only “a possible statement” on supposed “progress” but will also “highlight” the “disagreements” they have with one another.

In other words, they have a statement coming on nothing.

This is the epitome of Obama foreign policy.

Lots of meetings, lots of blather, no actual progress. The only thing this obtuse paragraph lacks is the ultimate Obama “achievement” of caving in to our enemies and giving them everything they want in the face of complaints from our allies.

But while this paragraph is illustrative of Obama’s fecklessness, a recent editorial in the Observer is even better for noting that Obama is so bad for the world that he’s worse than Neville Chamberlain.

The piece, entitled, “President Obama must not complete a disastrous deal with Iran,” makes some very excellent points in comparing the actions of Britain’s pre-WWII Prime Minister to Obama’s today.

The Observer rightfully points out that despite his disastrous “peace in our times” agreement with Hitler on the eve of WWII, Chamberlain had little choice to do what he did because he was dealing from a position of extreme weakness. Hitler held all the cards and Chamberlain could only cross his fingers and hope that “peace in our times” really was what he would have ended up with.

On the other hand, today Obama is the one with all the cards and yet he is still caving in to belligerent Iran’s demands to get nuclear arms so that it will be able to murder every Jew on the planet.

For more, David Rutz also has a great piece on all of Obama’s cave ins to Iran on this nuke deal.

In the end, Obama is the one sitting in Hitler’s chair in nearly every way possible, yet he’s acting like Chamberlain!

    Chamberlain didn’t help Hitler get the bomb. Obama would have handed it to him.

    • jim_m

      Come to think of it, nor did Chamberlain work to deliberately alienate our allies. Our allies now exclude the US from their planning because they believe (with good cause) that Obama is leaking their secrets directly to Iran. Obama has made the US synonymous with betrayal.

      • So… like I said… Obama is WORSE than Chamberlain. Far, far worse.

        • jim_m

          Absolutely. After being forced out as PM, Chamberlain became a solid supporter of Churchill and the war effort. When Iran gets the bomb and uses it Obama will ble someone else and he will work to obstruct efforts to contain the damage.

  • Hank_M

    I don’t think it matters what the “agreement” states. There’s no doubt the Iranians will do what they want, that Obama will lie about what’s in and that the MSM will hail it as historic.
    For the typical democrat low info voter, it’ll be another momentous accomplishment by Barry.

    All Barack needs is something signed by Iran.
    Anything bad happens down the line, it’s perfect because as is his wont, Obama will be able to point the blame elsewhere.

  • Walter_Cronanty

    Pertinent quote from Observer article: “The Iran deal is a march toward the nuclear abyss hand-in-hand with the world’s largest exporter of terrorism– the patron of Hezbollah, Hamas, Houthi militias in Yemen, Shiite militias in Iraq, and operatives killing Jews in Argentina. Regrettably, a naïve, petulant President Obama sees this as a crowning part of his legacy and nothing will stand in his way.”

    • Walter_Cronanty

      In keeping with the above, note the peace-loving words of Iran’s Commander of the Basij militia of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard had to say: “The commander of the Basij militia of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said that “erasing Israel off the map” is “nonnegotiable,” according to an Israel Radio report Tuesday. Militia chief Mohammad Reza Naqdi also threatened Saudi Arabia, saying that the offensive it is leading in Yemen “will have a fate like the fate of Saddam Hussein.”

    ” a tentative agreement on the rough outline of a possible public statement ”

        Who? Well, that esteemed observer of politics and the human condition, Groucho, who else?

        What deal did the right want? Well, no deal, of course. They thought that Iran would completely abandon their program if sanctions continued. Was that realistic? Of course not. Would the other components of the sanctions continue in concert with the United States? Of course not.

        Just another example of the position of those that simply don’t compromise.

        “Politics and governing demand compromise.” Barry Goldwater.
        The younger generation of Iranians is much more like Americans than many would imagine. They are not children of the Iranian revolution, but seem to have the same desires and ambitions of most young people. A good job, some semblance of freedom and access to fast broadband. Not to be flippant, but a considerable delay to the Iranian nuclear program is not meaningless. Remember, the populations and governments of other countries are not static.

            I don’t think you and Obama know what “compromise” means. When it comes to a deal with Iran getting nukes, “compromise” does not mean “surrender.” When it comes to dealing with Congress, it does not mean “my way, or I’ll Executive Order your ass.”

    The U.S. foreign policy is running behind the events. While Saudi Arabia and nine other moderate Sunni Muslim states battle Shiite rebels in Yemen who are proxy soldiers for Iran, the U.S. tries to improve relations with Iran, while most of the neighbors are close to all-out war with Iran. This foreign policy seems to be out of date…

    • Walter_Cronanty

      Obama is “leading from behind the times.”

      • Paul Hooson

        Agreed. – Saudi Arabia and the other Sunni states have given up any idea of accommodation with Iran, towards containment of their proxy wars if not eventual outright war with Iran as well. – U.S. hopes of improving relations with Iran are running behind recent events…

        • Walter_Cronanty

          I’ve read a couple of reports that Obama is “pivoting” to Iran as being the next big power in the Middle East, with his policies apparently helping Iran ascend to that position. Again, only opinion pieces.

          • Paul Hooson

            I don’t doubt that at all. This administration no doubt thinks that Iran is a power to be recognized in the region. Iran has a lot of influence in Iraq for example with some groups the U.S, supports also backed by Iran as well. But, a coalition of most neighbors only see Iran as a military and political threat and do not appreciate any U.S. role that improves their clout in the region.

            In Israel, Netanyahu needs to recognize this reality….that Iran has nothing but enemies in the region, and actually derives good security from this. Israel needs to appear to moving ahead peacefully with at least the mainstream Palestinian Authority to not be seen as another enemy in the region like ISIS, al Qaeda or Iran.

          • Of course, “opinion pieces” are all that is possible in a debate on foreign policy. After all, we can only have “facts” when things are DONE. Ideas of what to do or what might result from what was done is always and can only be a matter of opinion until time has passed.

          Fuck the Saudis. They have been funding the most extremist type of Islam for years. They pay for the mosques and preachers that preach hatred. They give money to the likes of Boko Haram and ISIS. They imprison and whip guys for writing about democracy.

          Compared to Saudi Arabia, Iran is Denmark.

    • Commander_Chico

      Where is the evidence the Shia Houthis are “proxy soldiers for Iran?” That is a war propaganda theme. Their main adversaries are Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

      Some of the “moderate Arab states” like Saudi Arabia are the ones who funded Al Qaeda and are funding ISIS now. The 28 pages of the 9/11 report dealing with Saudi support are still classified.

    Typical neocon bullshit. Every adversary is Hitler, any attempt to negotiate is Chamberlain.

    There’s only one way to stop Iran from making a bomb if it wants it. Invade and occupy the country. Of course none of you chickenhawks will be a part of that.

    The bomb is 1945 technology. It’s not hard to make. If North Korea can do it, Iran can do it. If they’re bombed, they’ll just conceal, rebuild, and adapt. There are many historical examples on the ineffectiveness of aerial bombing on even large scale industrial production.

    The way to stop Iran from making a bomb is to remove the incentive – which are the constant threats of attack by Israel and the neocons and the economic isolation – and make sure monitors are given complete access to the country.

    Don’t worry though, there will be no deal, the plan to attack is already in place. Your masters have decided. Maybe we’ll have WW Three with the Russians and Chinese over it.

      What constant threats of attack from Israel ? What sort of drug induced hallucination are you talking about ?

      The only time Israel would ever consider attacking Iran , which is hundreds of miles away from its borders , is to put a stop to a nuclear arms program in a nation that has promised to use them as a first strike against the Jewish people.

      And btw, no one is being compared to hitler. The comparison is to the clueless, appeasing Chamberlain and his complete inability to recognize a threat. Only you are so drug addled as to claim that history has nothing to teach us and that we should not look to history to inform our ideas about the present. What a load of crap from you. This is even worse than the usual bs you foist off on us.

    That right-wing rag, the WaPo, is daring to criticize Obama’s deal with Iran. This deal is sort of the reverse of “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” In this case, if Iran likes its centrifuges, enriching uranium, and its impregnable fortress for enriching uranium, it really can keep them:

    “THE “KEY parameters” for an agreement on Iran’s nuclear program released Thursday fall well short of the goals originally set by the Obama administration. None of Iran’s nuclear facilities — including the Fordow center buried under a mountain — will be closed. Not one of the country’s 19,000 centrifuges will be dismantled. Tehran’s existing stockpile of enriched uranium will be “reduced” but not necessarily shipped out of the country. In effect, Iran’s nuclear infrastructure will remain intact, though some of it will be mothballed for 10 years. When the accord lapses, the Islamic Republic will instantly become a threshold nuclear state.

    That’s a long way from the standard set by President Obama in 2012 when he declared that “the deal we’ll accept” with Iran “is that they end their nuclear program” and “abide by the U.N. resolutions that have been in place.” Those resolutions call for Iran to suspend the enrichment of uranium. Instead, under the agreement announced Thursday, enrichment will continue with 5,000 centrifuges for a decade, and all restraints on it will end in 15 years.”

        I suppose that your claim is that it is unreasonable and racist to hold obama to the very promises he made on this subject and that your proof that the WaPo is right wing is that they actually published FACTS about what obama said he was going to do and then contrasted them to the FACTS of what obama accomplished.

        By your comment we can assume that you believe that FACTS are by their very nature right wing. Unsurprisingly, your stock and trade is lies so it comes as little shock that you would take this position.

          What is perhaps most remarkable about the tenth anniversary of President George W. Bush’s war of aggression in Iraq is that almost no one who aided and abetted that catastrophic and illegal decision has been held accountable in any meaningful way. . . .

          . . . . arguably the most egregious example of the news media failing to exact serious accountability for getting this major historical event wrong is the case of Fred Hiatt, who was the editorial-page editor of the Washington Post when it served as drum major for the invade-Iraq parade and who still holds the same prestigious position ten years later.

          How is that possible? I’ve seen senior news executives dissect the work of honest journalists searching for minor flaws in articles to justify destroying their careers (i.e. what the San Jose Mercury News did to Gary Webb over his courageous reporting on Nicaraguan Contra-cocaine trafficking in the 1990s).

          So how could Hiatt still have the same important job at the Washington Post after being catastrophically wrong about the justifications for going to war – and after smearing war critics who tried to expose some of Bush’s lies to the American people? How could the U.S. news media be so upside-down in its principles that honest journalists get fly-specked and fired, while dishonest ones get life-time job security?

    Excellent article: “Benghazi, Bergdahl, and the Bomb”

    “President Obama strode to the lectern in the Rose Garden Thursday to announce a “historic” agreement between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran. The preliminary deal made in Lausanne, Switzerland, the president said, “cuts off every pathway Iran could take to develop a nuclear weapon.” I hope he’s right.

    But I’m not counting on it. ..The president has a terrible record of initial public pronouncements on national security. He has a habit of confidently stating things that turn out not to be true. Three times in the last four years he has appeared in the Rose Garden and made assertions that were later proven to be false….

    Now it not nice to compare Chamberlain with Obama. Chamberlain never tried to destroy Britain, nor was he a choom fan,
