Remember how the leftists all cried during the 8 years of W "The world hates us!" Well, that may have been but as long as they feared the United States and didn't try anything stupid, it was perfect. Obama however, has decided to adopt a new kind of diplomacy. Forget "Speak softly and carry a big stick" ala Teddy Roosevelt, Obama's foreign policy derives of "piss on yourself and get in the fetal position". America's enemies know full well when they deal with a big foreign policy pussy. Just look at the Iranians and the contrast between Carter and Reagan. But here are several stories of B. Hussein being "tested":
North Korea announced Friday that all agreements between it and South Korea had become "dead documents" in an apparent bid to refocus Seoul and Washington's attention on Pyongyang.
The Associated Press reports that on Friday, Pyongyang accused South Korean President Lee Myung Bak of worsening relations between the two Koreas by adopting a hard-line position against the North.
[The North's Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea] warned that Lee's stance would only draw "a heavier blow and shameful destruction."
US President Barack Obama's offer to talk to Iran shows that America's policy of "domination" has failed, the government spokesman said on Saturday.
"This request means Western ideology has become passive, that capitalist thought and the system of domination have failed," Gholam Hossein Elham was quoted as saying by the Mehr news agency.
"Negotiation is secondary, the main issue is that there is no way but for (the United States) to change," he added.
After nearly three decades of severed ties, Obama said shortly after taking office this month that he is willing to extend a diplomatic hand to Tehran if the Islamic republic is ready to "unclench its fist".
In response, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad launched a fresh tirade against the United States, demanding an apology for its "crimes" against Iran and saying he expected "deep and fundamental" change from Obama.
HAVANA — Fidel Castro on Thursday threw his first punch at President Obama after several weeks of praise for the new leader, demanding the U.S. return Guantanamo Bay military base to Cuba and criticizing the U.S. defense of Israel.
CAMPO CARABOBO, Venezuela (Reuters) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said on Saturday Barack Obama had the "stench" of his predecessor as U.S. president and was at risk of being killed if he tries to change the American "empire."
Maybe this is the type of "respect" the left has been waiting America to have. No doubt The Big Zero will let these rouge dictators walk all over him, but what do you expect from somebody too stupid to tell a door from a window?
