The NY Times destroys Obama
« on: January 03, 2014, 05:31:04 AM »
"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

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Great read and it explains a great deal about how things have ended up where they are right now in the Middle East.  It has been clear for some time that this Administration was full of amateurs, and this article backs that up. 

This kind of pretend foreign policy in the Middle East is quite reminiscent of British foreign policy leading up to and during the First World War.  There were Members of Parliament whose only qualification was inheriting their seat, who regularly traveled all over the Middle East representing themselves as speaking for the British Crown, and just as regularly caused more long term deadly problems than existed before they arrived. 

The biggest problem is a systemic and willful lack of understanding about who is who in the Middle East and how things really work.  The Obama Administration is applying imaginary values to warring Arab tribes who have no use whatsoever for Westerners and who scorn Obama as a weakling.  Nobody in this crew is qualified to deal with any of the Arab players or any of the different Muslim sects and that is what makes this so incredibly dangerous.
