Obama’s report card – foreign policy

A freind asked me what I thought of President Obama so far?

I first explained that I have been writing for more than eighteen months that Obama was a moderate Democrat (right of center DNC type – meaning extreme right wing by European standards). I wrote that Obama was -500, vs. -50,000 for Hillery Clinton, -500,000 for fighter pilot who crashed five planes and was near the bottom of his class at Annapolis before Palin and the McCain/Palin idiocrocay of -5,000,000 and the Cheney/Bush war-criminolgy-ocracy (work it out) at -5,000,000,000 but Obama was still -500.

Now, a year later I apologize.

I was wrong!

Obama is not -500 he is -5,000 and perhaps -500,000 on foreign policy where he is third term of Bush (light):

  • We still have Guantanamo.
  • Extraordinary renditions still continue (as far as we know – there has not been an executive order against them).
  • We still put our own national interests behind those of the extreme right wing Zionist movement in Israel (the Likhud party which was accused by the UN human rights commission of war crimes).
  • We still aid Ahmadinjad and other conservatives in Iran by not negotiating in good faith with Iran about its rights and obligations under the NPT (Nuclear non-Proliferation Treaty) which gives any signatory full rights to have peaceful nuclear energy and obliges all NPT signatories to put sanctions on the non-signatories which developed nuclear weapons illegally (India, Israel, North Korea, Pakistan).
    Note that we help three of the above countries even though two (India and Pakistan) have had multiple wars against each other and one (Israel) has broken every single UN rule with our help and veto power.
    Note – every time we talk about attacking Iran or putting sanctions we help the Iranian right wing. Ninety five percent of all Iranians believe in their countries right to peacefully pursue nuclear energy. And Iranians (like everyone else) are very proud people and the best way to get every Iranian to support Iran is to bomb Iran or place very general sanctions on the people of Iran.
  • We still support the extreme misogynistic fundamentalist Islamic dictatorships in Saudi Arabia, and Pakistan. We support the dictatorship in Egypt. This is not the way to win the hearts of the Muslim people.
  • We still have the largest military in the world – spending more than all the rest of the world.
  • There has been no trial of the torturers and war criminals.

I could go on but that’s enough so for foreign policy Obama gets an F-.
