The Obamination in Kyrgyzstan
With the announcement from rebel leaders in Kyrgyzstan that they were assisted by Russia in their coup d’etat which left blood flowing in rivers through the streets of the capital city, Bishkek, last week, our very worst fears about the abomination known as Barack Obama were realized.
Obama claimed to be “resetting” relations with Russia from the Bush years, and he sure has done so. Russia has ousted the pro-U.S. regime in Bishkek that had thumbed its nose at Russia and insisted on preserving the U.S. military base just outside the capital city. It has reached out to the maniacal Venezuelan ruler Hugo Chavez, promising him nuclear and rocket technology as well as billions in weapons. And it goes on shamelessly providing that same type of technology to Iran. Obama has even gone so far as to authorize U.S. soldiers to march through Red Square saluting Putin on V-E day. Rumors are beginning to fly, and we report some in today’s issue, that Russian troops will march into Georgia once again this summer. The new ruler of Ukraine has just repudiated NATO membership for his country.
Welcome to the Obamination. To put it mildly, we are appalled.
Thanks to Obama, not only does the U.S. now face threats all throughout post-Soviet space, in the Middle East and in its own hemisphere, but it has all but abandoned the defense of American values within Russia itself. America has given the neo-Soviet Putin regime a blank check on aggression both at home and abroad, and for what? For a nuclear weapons reduction treaty that is of far more value to Russia than to America (because it frees limited Russian resources from useless nukes to useful blunt trauma against the domestic population and in post-Soviet space) and vague promises about imposing sanctions on Iran, sanctions that would not be necessary but for Russia assistance to that rogue state. That Putin lied shamelessly and publicly when asked whether Russia had supported the Kyrgyz coup, and moved forward with it even as Obama was meeting with Dima Medvedev in Prague to sign the nuclear accord, shows the naked contempt he has for the neophyte Obama and his pathetic policies of appeasement.
Just as we feared he might, Obama has proven to be the worst manager of America’s Russia policy in more than three decades. Not since the imbecile peanut farmer James Earl “Just call me Jimmy” Carter has American policy been so benighted and dangerous.
It was for this very reason that we endorsed John McCain for president against Obama, and we were heartened by McCain’s impassioned speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate calling for solidarity against neo-Soviet aggression. it is time now for all patriotic Americans to join McCain and stand up against the betrayal of American values and security by the unqualified ignoramus who now governs from Washington DC. Those who support Obama now are culpable in perpetuating Russian aggression and dictatorship, and condemning yet another generation of Americans to wallow in the blight of cold war.
