Obama to European allies: Drop dead

President Obama sent out his flack, Robert Gibbs, today to announce that the U.S. would be abandoning its plans to construct limited ground-based missile defenses in Poland and the Czech Republic. The missile defense system was targeted at preventing Iran from using its nascent nuclear capability from terrorizing our allies in Europe. (Let’s leave the debate over whether they should’ve been paying for this protection rather than the U.S. for another day.)

In return for kowtowing to an increasingly belligerent Russia’s demands, did the Obama administration get Vladimir Putin and his puppet Dmitry Medvedev, to stop their weapons sales to the Iranian regime? Did they get agreements for tough, new sanctions against the world’s premier terrorist-supporting state?

No, they didn’t.

I thought we could survive four years of an naif like President Obama in the White House. I may yet be proven right – at least about Americans. Israelis and various Europeans within Iranian missile range? Not so much.
