Barack Obama sermonized that there are no existential threats to the United States including Islamic State. Well, that should bring comfort to the millions of victims of IslamoNazi barbarity.
Islamic State is not yet a mortal threat to America.
But the Democrat party is, and right now.
Charles Krauthammer elaborates on the multiple disasters that constitute the Obama/Democrat party’s foreign policy.
If you’re going to engage in a foreign policy capitulation, might as well do it when everyone is getting tanked and otherwise occupied. Say, New Year’s Eve.
Here’s the story. In October, Iran test-fires a nuclear-capable ballistic missile in brazen violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions prohibiting such launches. President Barack Obama does nothing. One month later, Iran does it again. The administration makes a few gestures at the United Nations. Then nothing. Then finally, on Dec. 30, the White House announces a few sanctions.
They are weak, aimed mostly at individuals and designed essentially for show. Amazingly, even that proves too much. By 10 p.m. that day, the administration caves. The White House sends out an email saying that sanctions are off — and the Iranian president orders the military to expedite the missile program.
