Obama Foreign Policy: Barry, don’t you hate it when reality intrudes on your fantasy world about how to deal with terrorist regimes?
Remember this little exchange from last July, when CBS’ Major Garrett dared to ask the One about the hostages being held in Iran?
In just a little three hours, Barack Obama will put on another clinic in delusion, celebrating his many domestic and foreign policy “successes.” This latest excursion into his beautiful fantasy world is facing a serious collision with an inconvenient reality, this time in the form of the Iranian mullahs, who don’t seem the least bit concerned about spoiling his little propaganda fest, the State of the Union.
As we witness the humiliating spectacle of the taking of 2 Navy boats, and holding 10 American sailors hostage by Iran, let’s review where we are with the Iranian under the able stewardship of our first affirmative-action, Marxist occupant of the Oval Office.
They continue to hold American hostages, including
- Robert Levinson, retired FBI agent and CIA contractor
- Pastor Saeed Abedini
- Amir Hekmati, a former U.S. Marine
- Siamak Namazi, an Iranian-American businessman
- Nizar Zakka, A Lebanese-born IT expert with U.S. permanent resident status, who was invited to Iran by the country’s vice president
They have convicted Washington Post reporter American Jason Rezaian of espionage. (More about that here,)
They have fired nuclear capable ballistic missiles, at least one with a range of at least 600 miles, in violation of U.N.resolution. Even democrats who once supported his ridiculous Iran deal are scratching their heads and asking for more sanctions in view of these violations. When the mullahs threatened to walk away from the deal, the Obama Regime backed down, delaying sanctions.
They have allowed the torching of the embassy of long-time U.S. ally, Saudi Arabia.
They fired unguided rockets near the USS Harry S. Truman, which came within 1500 yards of the vessel.
This WaPo editorial headline from last month captures exactly what is going on: “Iran provokes the world as Obama does nothing.”
What’s that thing that Donald Trump likes to say? Oh yes. We are governed by very stupid people.
That’s very true, but remember all of this coddling of the terror Iranian regime is not because of incompetence or stupidity. It is by design. Obama, who has despised the notion of America as the world’s sole super power his whole adult life, cannot wait to build up Iran as a regional power. We explained that all here.
