Editor's Note: I wish my readers a happy Thanksgiving: I plan to take tomorrow
Following the recently-ended year of "negotiations" with Iran, Caroline Glick concludes the following regarding President Obama's foreign policy goals:
When we consider Obama's decision to wait for a year to sign the deal that enables Iran to become a nuclear power in the context of his main activities over the past year, we understand his foreign policy.That is certainly a tempting and understandable conclusion, but it might be giving too much credit to the feckless empty suit to attribute to him enough long-range thought to have overall goals of his own. That said, Glick's kind of analysis can be extended to the President's actions generally and is spot-on in this crucial respect: Actions speak louder than words. Whatever is going on between Obama's ears, it is undeniable that its consistent effect has been to undermine his own country at home and abroad.
His goal is not to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power. It isn't even to facilitate a rapprochement between America and Iran. The goal of Obama's foreign policy is to weaken the State of Israel.
PS: It is most instructive to note, as Glick does, that in over a year of "negotiations" with this state sponsor of terrorism, "the final deal reflects Iran's opening positions."
