… The ObamaCraps are a Disgrace [#Palestinians at the U.N.]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,April 14th,2016

.. what should the ObamaCraps have done with the Palestinians ‘ draft resolution ? …

.. they should have vetoed it , straight out . No dilly dallying around …

.. just voting no is not enough . Especially rewarding the Palestinians for their obstinacy …

.. the P.A. upped the ante by petitioning to join the International Criminal Court . They are not just acting to pressure the U.S. : their target is Israel . His Lordship is , unfortunately , a possibly willing accomplice …

… The Iran Nuclear Sanctions are an Act of Congress [#a law]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,March 15th,2016

.. so , His Lordship has only limited to no authority to waive them …

.. many areas of foreign policy are the exclusive province of the POTUS . Congress does have some role , but it is circumscribed pretty heavily by the Constitution ..

.. [h/t — NYSlimes.com]..
.. [link] to the news article …

.. in this case , Congress has acted . It has enacted economic sanctions against Iran into law . There is normally a little bit of wiggle room for POTUS to waive those sanctions . That power is usually written into the law . Otherwise , no , it cannot be done …

.. So , if POTUS wants to reduce or eliminate the Iran sanctions , forget it . There is no moral or political support in Congress for the move . He might get some maneuvering room , but not much else other than that …

.. and until he and Europe get serious , Putin and Russia have no reason to fear anything that we are going to do …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,March 25th,2014

.. it is about time that other allied nations took notice . My own country (the United States) , plus other allied nations (the U,K, , France , Germany , etc..) should step up and take much more notice …

… What is POTUS thinking ?

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,March 8th,2014

.. has he learned nothing in 5 years in office ?

.. China — China is behaving like a regional bully ; Japan and India are linking up …. potentially , both those two nations , along with South Korea . What must the ChiComs be thinking ? …
.. Russia — look at current events … Putin has to judge how far he can go , and what he can get away with … if he miscalculates , then things could get real dicey in Europe …. and the Europeans will have no one but themselves to blame for it …
.. North Korea — North Korea is crazy , but how crazy ? Would they be nuts enough to start things all over again on the Korean Peninsula ? They just might ?
.. Israel — POTUS is acting as if Israel (and Netanyahu) is the problem . He thinks that by the animal magnetism of his personality that Bibi will back down and acceed to his wishes …. Well , he is in for a big surprise . Bibi will not back down . He will call POTUS ‘ bluff . It will especially be much easier to do since POTUS is not speaking to AIPAC , it will get even the DummyCrap jewish folks attention …

.. the WashingtonComPost editorial , blasting POTUS for his head – in – fantasyland foreign policy … [link]…

… My God [Venezuela] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,February 23rd,2014

.. it is more of Send in the Goons time ! ..

.. it has been , ever since Hugo Chavez and his crowd took power in an electoral ” coup ” many years ago . They continue to play out the Send in the Goons card , although there are far fewer Chavistas these days . They literally have to pay them in order to get them to show up , and their numbers are down sharply .

.. Now , it is the army that has to do the dirty work . Somehow , I do not think that they are too happy about it . They would rather have the National Policy wield the trunchions instead of plain ordinary mestizos . The higher ups cannot be entirely confident that their orders are going to be followed …

.. It would be nice if we had some strategic foresight here in America . POTUS , VPOTUS , and their crowd have no idea of what they are doing , or what they want to do . If they had any kind of strategic vision , they could end up having a ” B ” anticipating events , and thinking ahead towards what could or should be done , especially in foreign affairs ….

.. A ” B ” team would be a good idea in domestic politics , too . These idiots would not get caught so often when they get seen ” leading from behind . ” Thinking ahead and anticipiating events would help to avoid a lot of unneccessary grief …

… Cutting and Running is not the Answer ! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,August 2nd,2013

.. The State Department seems to think that it has accurate intel about terroristic threats about ongoing ops in the Arab World . Or , so it thinks that it does . I would tend to wonder . As a response , they have ordered the “temporary” closure of embassies and consulates throughout the Arab World . They think that that is the answer to an increased security threat ? Cutting and Running ?

.. The ObamaCrap foreign policy is a disgrace . We are the laughingstock , around the world . Our level of respect in foreign lands has never been lower . The so – called ” Russian reset ” is anything but an embarassment . It is but an excuse for our foreign policy establishment to kiss up to the Russians , while appeasing them to the n – th degree , while effectively getting nothing in return . The “Arab Spring” has been totally mismanaged . Our friends cower in fear , while our enemies advance their interests . They do so with very little , if any , fear of what we think , or what we will do . The Far East has badly destabilized , and , if we are not careful , a war could break out , one that could go nuclear very quickly .

.. We need better . We deserve better . We have to have better . The sooner , the better .
