It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Go Blow Joe

Once again it looks like the Pampers administration can't seem to make up its mind. Having made a whirlwind tour of Europe, in a humiliatingly botched attempt to retool America's image as the world's ex-policeman, bully, and enforcer. No more will America be dictating its favored policy to foreign powers, encroaching on their sovereignty by demanding that they comply with America's interests: unless the subject happens to be Turkey being admitted to the EU, or the survival of Israel.

The message this week: we're going to let Iran get the bomb, and Israel needs to sit back and let it happen, so it can risk being evaporated off the face of the earth. On 2 April American Defense Secretary Robert Gates informed us, via the Financial Times, that he would be "surprised" if Israel acted against Iran this year as it might be a year, or two, or three, before Israel would actually be in danger of being wimolated. I'm sure Israelis find that to be very reassuring.

Then today it was reported that Joe "Plugs" Biden warned Israel against making any moves against Iran. From the LA Times:
With his brief comment Tuesday, Biden became the highest-ranking administration official to caution the Jewish state against a military strike. In the interview, Biden was asked whether he was concerned that Netanyahu might strike Iranian nuclear facilities.

"I don't believe Prime Minister Netanyahu would do that. I think he would be ill advised to do that," Biden said.
Yep, it's a new era for American foreign policy all right. Radical Islamists are going to be allowed to get the bomb, and a sovereign nation is being told to sit on its hands and commit suicide.

Apparently the lesson that Pampers claims America has learned, not to dictate terms to other countries, has a caveat: Israel. What a surprise.

Here's a reality check Joe. I have a feeling that Israel is not going to be taking foreign policy and defense advice from a braying ass such as yourself, or any of the other chuckleheads passing themselves off as humanoid in the Pampers administration.

Thank goodness the Pampers administration is not running short on Stupid.

even Salon is turning on Obama, this is fun to watch. My hopes lay on Bibi, and my compatriot Avigdor Lieberman.

I just discovered your "Live free or Die" post at City Tavern. You say it so well! Excellent post!

I read those comments the other day and immediately thought of you. For some reason, my first thought was of Bush I and the Gulf War. Putting the validity, and practicality, and even possibly, the necessity of asking a vulnerable ally to keep taking hits on your behalf aside for a moment, you gotta wonder about the wisdom of repeatedly doing so.
But, maybe I'm reading things wrong.

Barack Obama: President Pantywaist - new surrender monkey on the block

President Barack Obama has recently completed the most successful foreign policy tour since Napoleon’s retreat from Moscow. You name it, he blew it. What was his big deal economic programme that he was determined to drive through the G20 summit? Another massive stimulus package, globally funded and co-ordinated. Did he achieve it? Not so as you’d notice.

Barack is not the first New World ingenue to discover that European leaders will load him with praise, struggle sycophantically to be photographed with him and outdo him in Utopian rhetoric. But when it comes to the critical moment of opening their wallets - suddenly it is flag-day in Aberdeen. Okay, put the G20 down to inexperience, beginner’s nerves, what you will.

On to Nato and the next big objective: to persuade the same European evasion experts that America, Britain and Canada should no longer bear the brunt of the Afghan struggle virtually unassisted. The Old World sucked through its teeth, said that was asking a lot - but, seeing it was Barack, to whom they could refuse nothing, they would graciously accede to his wishes.

So The One retired triumphant, having secured a massive contribution of 5,000 extra troops - all of them non-combatant, of course - which must really have put the wind up the Taliban, at the prospect of 5,000 more infidel cooks and bottle-washers swarming into the less hazardous regions of Afghanistan.

Then came the dramatic bit, the authentic West Wing script, with the President wakened in the middle of the night in Prague to be told that Kim Jong-il had just launched a Taepodong-2 missile. America had Aegis destroyers tracking the missile and could have shot it down. But Uncle Sam had a sterner reprisal in store for l’il ole Kim (as Dame Edna might call him): a multi-megaton strike of Obama hot air.

“Rules must be binding,” declared Obama, referring to the fact that Kim had just breached UN Resolutions 1695 and 1718. “Violations must be punished.” (Sounds ominous.) “Words must mean something.” (Why, Barack? They never did before, for you - as a cursory glance at your many speeches will show.)

President Pantywaist is hopping mad and he has a strategy to cut Kim down to size: he is going to slice $1.4bn off America’s missile defence programme, presumably on the calculation that Kim would feel it unsporting to hit a sitting duck, so that will spoil his fun.

Watch out, France and Co, there is a new surrender monkey on the block and, over the next four years, he will spectacularly sell out the interests of the West with every kind of liberal-delusionist initiative on nuclear disarmament and sitting down to negotiate with any power freak who wants to buy time to get a good ICBM fix on San Francisco, or wherever. If you thought the world was a tad unsafe with Dubya around, just wait until President Pantywaist gets into his stride.

HA HA HA!! "The Pampers Administration"? I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.

Great blog...I could kick myself for taking so long to discover it.
