Do you remember when you were in school, how there was always that weird kid who tried to suck up to the bully? You know the kid, the one who offered to do all these nice things for the bully, so that the bully would stop kicking his or her ass? Remember how it never worked? That poor kid always ended up becoming the bully's bitch. I think Barak Obama is that kid.
In Obama's latest attempt at Kumbaya Diplomacy (i.e. Smart Power), he has invited Iranian Officials for Fourth of July celebrations at US embassies around the world. The administration claims that this is all part of trying to engage Iran. Here is my question; what has Iran done to deserve such rewards?
In the absence of any "good behavior" on Iran's part, are we not rewarding their bad behavior? In some corners of the world, rewarding bad behavior as a way of getting people to behave nicely is still called appeasement.
The Obama Administration whole soft power approach is rapidly departing failure and venturing into farce! Gerald Warner at the The Daily Telegraph, has an excellent piece titled: Barack Obama: all the bad guys are giving President Pantywaist the finger. Unlike American journalists, the Brits tell it like it is.
