Obama’s foreign policy

I wonder where those Obama’s friends are now. In USA? Europe? Australia? Or still spreading democracy in Libya?

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.

One Response to Obama’s foreign policy

  1. Open Mind says:

    There’s no question the Borg Queen is a neoocn and an ideologue.Consider:1. she opposed the international treaty to ban land mines and voted against the Feinstein-Leahy amendment restricting U.S. exports of cluster bombs to countries that use them against civilian-populated areas.2. She opposed restrictions on U.S. arms transfers and police training to governments that engage in gross and systematic human rights abuses, such as Egypt, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Israel, Pakistan, Cameroon and Chad, to name only a few.3. She insisted upon continuing unconditional funding for the Iraq war and has called for dramatic increases in Bush’s already bloated military budget.4. She challenged the credibility of Amnesty International and other human rights groups that criticize policies of the United States and its allies.5. She’s one of the Senate’s most outspoken critics of the United Nations, even serving as the featured speaker at rallies outside U.N. headquarters in July 2004.6. She voted to authorize the U.S. invasion of Iraq despite its being a clear violation of the U.N. Charter and in July 2004 falsely accused the United Nations of not taking a stand against terrorism when it has opposed U.S. policy. 7. She was one of the most prominent critics of the International Court of Justice for its landmark 2004 advisory ruling that the Fourth Geneva Conventions on the Laws of War is legally binding on all signatory nations. 8. She condemned the United Nations’ judicial arm for challenging the legality of Israel’s separation barrier in the occupied West Bank and sponsored a Senate resolution urging no further action by the United Nations to delay or prevent the construction of the security fence. 9. She’s shown little regard for the danger from proliferation of nuclear weapons, not only opposing the enforcement of U.N. Security Council resolutions challenging Pakistan, Israel and India’s nuclear weapons programs but supporting the delivery of nuclear-capable missiles and jet fighters to these countries.10. She voted to suspend important restrictions on U.S. nuclear cooperation with countries that violate the Non-Proliferation Treaty.11. She insists that the prospect of Iran’s developing nuclear weapons must be unacceptable to the entire world, since challenging the nuclear monopoly of the United States and its allies in the region would somehow shake the foundation of global security to its very core. 12. She accused the Bush administration of not taking the threat of a nuclear Iran seriously enough, criticized the administration for allowing European nations to take the lead in pursuing a diplomatic solution and insisted that the United States should make it clear that military options were still being actively considered.13. She insists that the United States should maintain the right to use nuclear weapons against non-nuclear countries.14. She was an outspoken supporter of Israel’s massive military assault on the civilian infrastructure of Lebanon and the Gaza Strip, which took the lives of over 1,000 civilians — 500 of whom were children under the age of 12.15. She justified it by claiming it would send a message to Hamas, Hezbollah, to the Syrians [and] to the Iranians because they opposed the United States and Israel’s commitment to life and freedom. 16. She’s continued to cite a right-wing group’s 1999 report claiming the Palestinian Authority was publishing anti-Semitic textbooks. Like President Bush, she is more prone to believe ideologically driven propaganda than independent investigative reporting or scholarly research.17. She ignores substantial evidence that Iraq had already rid itself of its chemical and biological weapons and no longer had a nuclear program.18. She justified her calls for a U.S. invasion of Iraq on the grounds that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons. Even after it was discovered that Iraq no longer had weapons of mass destruction. If her voting record, policy positions and beliefs don’t qualify her as a neoocn and an ideologue, then I’m a conservative — not!
