Saudis: “We Are Learning from Our Enemies How to Treat the United States.”

October 5, 2013 By Daniel Greenfield 10 Comments

The Saudis were hardly our friends to begin with, but the message that Obama’s pathetic diplomacy has sent is that he’ll like you more if you kick him in the face.


The Russians and Iranians demonstrated that for all the world to see.

The prominent Middle East historian Bernard Lewis applied Groucho’s famous line (“I wouldn’t want to be a member of any club that would have me as a member”) to misguided foreign policy, saying, “A principle of Western foreign policies is that we do not worry about the friendship of any government that would seek our friendship. It’s only our enemies in whom we are interested.”

That’s really the liberal foreign policy and under Barack Hussein Carter, it’s our only foreign policy. Screw our allies. Beg our enemies to be our friends.

And the only outcome of that is that everyone learns that the best diplomatic outreach to the United States is enmity.

Saudis now feel that the Obama administration is disregarding Saudi concerns over Iran and Syria, and will respond accordingly in ignoring “U.S. interests, U.S. wishes, U.S. issues” in Syria, said Mustafa Alani, a veteran Saudi security analyst with the Geneva-based Gulf Research Center.

“They are going to be upset—we can live with that,” Mr. Alani said Sunday of the Obama administration. “We are learning from our enemies now how to treat the United States.”

If the Saudis start openly acting like our enemies, instead of covertly, that could be an unintended positive outcome of Obama’s disastrous foreign policy.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

People tend to forget how much oil we get from the House of Saud and how much they influenced the price of oil through OPEC-yeah, remember those guys?

We have the ultimate fix though, if the oblumbler and his minions will stay out of the way.  Shale, Eagle Ford shale.  We don't need no stinkin' ME oil.
