Alienating Allies, Appeasing Enemies

This post's headline pretty much sums up Obama's foreign policy that seems to be growing more nauseating by the week.

This week's specific alienating our allies while appeasing our enemies policy maneuver on the part of Dear Leader is to throw our Eastern European allies under Russia's bus.

Obama's apparent hope is that placating Russia will help them cooperate with the U.S. over Iran's missiles. All Obama has done is shown Russia and Iran that Obama will spinelessly cave at the slightest pressure and shown Poland and the Czech Republic that America will no longer help protect them.

Obama is giving preferential treatment to governments that have a history of socialism and communism over America's natural democratic allies. Obama is placating fascist-Islamic countries over democracies. Obama is weakening America, making us vulnerable to both attack and bad treaties.

So long as America is a superpower (and thanks to Obama's domestic policy that standing is increasingly in doubt), America will be disliked. To try to make friends with some of the most vicious and despicable governments on planet Earth - at the expense of our long-time allies - is idiotic at best, dangerous at worst.

Obama should be ashamed. I know I am.

UPDATE - My views are shared by many.
