Astonished at Obama’s naivete, Sarkozy said:
“President Obama, I support the Americans’ outstretched hand. But what did the international community gain from these offers of dialogue? Nothing.” — French president Nicolas Sarkozy, September 2
Obama’s debut as head of the U.N. security council flopped (of course) and was met with Iran testing missiles and Russia reaffirming that it didn’t think Iran’s new secret weapons lab warranted sanctions.
Charles Krauthamer didn’t mince any words:
When France chides you for appeasement, you know you’re scraping bottom. Just how low we’ve sunk was demonstrated by the Obama administration’s satisfaction when Russia’s president said of Iran, after meeting President Obama at the U.N., that “sanctions are seldom productive, but they are sometimes inevitable.”
What is more astonishing is that France and Britain knew Obama had in his possession explosive information regarding Iran’s newly discovered secret laboratory, and were urging him to use it at his debut at the UN Security Council to call for more action. Obama apparently refused. Citing White House sources,
... Obama wanted the Security Council meeting to be about his own dream of a nuclear-free world. The president, reports the New York Times, citing “White House officials,” did not want to “dilute” his disarmament resolution “by diverting to Iran.”
Diversion? It’s the most serious security issue in the world. A diversion from what? From a worthless U.N. disarmament resolution?
The pathological ego of Obama is so dangerous that he threatens the world with nuclear disaster.
Oh. I forgot other ‘slap-in-your-face’ activities were underway with the $2.2 million (jet fuel) ‘sacrifice’ trip to Copenhagen. My bad.
There is something else going on behind the scenes of this display of disrespect, stupidity, and ego. Obama plays the part willingly, but this has everything to do with our security right now. As they say, sleep with one eye open! 😯
