Do Tyrants Fear America Anymore?

Do Tyrants Fear America Anymore?
President Obama’s timid foreign policy is an embarrassment for a global superpower.
From The UK Telegraph - By Nile Gardiner
Nile Gardner is a Washington-based foreign affairs analyst and political commentator. He appears frequently on American and British television and radio, including Fox News Channel, CNN, BBC, Sky News, and NPR.

The débacle of Washington’s handling of the Libya issue is symbolic of a wider problem at the heart of the Obama administration’s foreign policy. The fact that it took ten days and at least a thousand dead on the streets of Libya’s cities before President Obama finally mustered the courage to call for Muammar “mad dog” Gaddafi to step down is highly embarrassing for the world’s only superpower, and emblematic of a deer-in-the-headlights approach to world leadership.

Washington seems incapable of decisive decision-making on foreign policy at the moment, a far cry from the days when it swept entire regimes from power, and defeated America’s enemies with deep-seated conviction and an unshakeable drive for victory.

Just a few years ago the United States was genuinely feared on the world stage, and dictatorial regimes, strategic adversaries and state sponsors of terror trod carefully in the face of the world’s most powerful nation. Now Washington appears weak, rudderless and frequently confused in its approach.

From Tehran to Tripoli, the Obama administration has been pathetically slow to lead, and afraid to condemn acts of state-sponsored repression and violence. When protesters took to the streets to demonstrate against the Islamist dictatorship in Iran in 2009, the brutal repression that greeted them was hardly a blip on Barack Obama’s teleprompter screen, barely meriting a response from a largely silent presidency.

In contrast to Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, President Obama fails to see the United States as an exceptional nation, with a unique role in leading the free world and standing up to tyranny. In his speeches abroad he has frequently found fault with his own country, rather than projecting confidence in American greatness.

From Cairo to Strasbourg he has adopted an apologetic tone rather than demonstrating faith in America as a shining city upon a hill, a beacon of freedom and liberty. A leader who lacks pride in his own nation’s historic role as a great liberator simply cannot project strength abroad.

It has also become abundantly clear that the Obama team attaches little importance to human rights issues, and in contrast to the previous administration has not pursued a freedom agenda in the Middle East and elsewhere. It places far greater value upon engagement with hostile regimes, even if they are carrying out gross human rights abuses, in the mistaken belief that appeasement enhances security.

This has been the case with Iran, Russia and North Korea for example. This administration has also been all too willing to sacrifice US leadership in deference to supranational institutions such as the United Nations, whose track record in standing up to dictatorships has been virtually non-existent.

The White House’s painful navel-gazing on Libya last week, with even the French adopting a far tougher stance, is cause for grave concern.

The Obama administration’s timid approach to foreign policy is the last thing the world needs at a time of mounting turmoil in the Middle East, including the growing threat of a nuclear-armed Iran, and Islamist militancy on the rise from Egypt to Yemen.

US leadership is now needed more than ever, but has embarrassingly gone AWOL on the world stage.

Timid foreign policy? 
What foreign policy?
The guy is simply NOT a leader...
It's time to throw him out!

The Elephants in the Room

In the Midst of the Egyptian Upheaval: The Elephants in the Room
By Dan Gordon at American Thinker

As the Middle East is engulfed in a series of often violent pro-democracy demonstrations and counter-demonstrations that have shattered the myth of stability in that region, there are a number of other myths which have been shattered as well -- about which no one has said a word.

These myths are the elephants in the room, and try as hard as some would to turn a blind eye to them, they are now more self-evident than ever. Borrowing from the Letterman Show, here is my own Top Five List, together with a few conclusions.

1.  Israel is an apartheid state - Muslim Arabs are demonstrating all across the Middle East to rid themselves of autocratic dictatorships and replace them with true representative democracies. From Algeria to Tunisia, from Egypt to Jordan, from Yemen to the Sudan, and seemingly all points in between, the cause is the same. People want to live in freedom. They want to have their human rights respected. They want democracy. There is seemingly only one place where Muslim Arabs have not taken to the streets against such regimes and in support of such ideals. That place is Israel (even though 20% of Israel's population is Arab). The lack of demonstrations stems from a simple fact: Israeli Arabs already live in a democracy. The rights they enjoy there make them the envy of the Middle East. They live in a nation of laws with one of the most vibrant democracies in the world, complete with a notoriously loud and free press, an independent judiciary, fair and free elections, and a military which is subordinate to the democratically elected civilian government. Simply put, what hundreds of millions of Muslim Arabs are clamoring for throughout the Middle East is what Israeli Arabs already have.

2.  Israel's policies toward the Palestinians are the root cause of unrest and instability in the region - The crowds demonstrating in Tunisia and Tahrir Square, in Amman, in the Sudan, and in Yemen, and indeed those protests scheduled to take place in both the Palestinian Authority and Hamas-run Gaza, have nothing to do with Israel. These demonstrations are aimed at the corruption of those governments, including those Palestinian entities which rule over the Palestinians themselves.

3.  In the Middle East, Israel has become Goliath, threatening an impoverished and downtrodden Palestinian David - One of the edifying effects of this crisis has been the number of maps of the Middle East which have been shown on the nightly news programs. In those maps, one sees a veritable Islamic sea stretching from the Mediterranean to the Persian Gulf. Hundreds upon hundreds of millions of Muslims in scores of countries, and in their midst there is one tiny dot, so small that its name will not even fit within its borders on the map. That is is why you see "Israel" posted in the Mediterranean alongside the tiny sliver of land which is the Jewish State. The very elements the West fears most as the possible replacement governments for the dictatorships on the brink of collapse, are those that would ally themselves with the most radical elements in the Palestinian camp. Who is David? Who is Goliath? Who's kidding whom?

4.  The West has a number of strategic allies and partners in the Middle East and can't sacrifice their strategic interests with those partners because of an intransigent Israel - Looking at those same maps, it must now be abundantly clear that the West has only one reliable ally in the Middle East: Israel.

5.  Egypt and Jordan made peace with Israel and have gotten nothing to show for it - This is perhaps one of the most tragic myths. Though both of those governments have signed treaties with Israel that ended active hostilities, neither of those governments has taken the steps necessary to educate its people for peaceful coexistence with Israel. Indeed, the Egyptian government has fomented some of the most virulent anti-Semitism imaginable, and literally hundreds of projects between Israel and its neighbors which could have provided tens of thousands of jobs and a new era of prosperity have been shelved in order to cultivate the image of an Israeli boogeyman in order to deflect the shortcomings of those very governments. The tragic truth is that the key to prosperity for both Egypt and Jordan is a warm peace with Israel, full of cooperative regional ventures that could provide the life and livelihood for their citizens which are now being clamored for in the streets of Cairo and Amman.

So what are the conclusions one is to draw from the past month's events?

1.  A peace agreement without educating the population toward peace and coexistence is only a piece of paper.

2.  In a region without true democracy, there is no true stability. For Israel to survive in the neighborhood in which it lives, there have to be concrete security arrangements that can stand the test of time -- because the peace treaty you sign with one regime today may be ground to dust by the one that takes its place tomorrow.

3.  Consider all the arms that the United States has given to Egypt, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, the Palestinian Authority, and Saudi Arabia. If the demonstrations now boiling over throughout the Middle East topple those governments, or if those governments ally themselves with expansionist Islamist aims, all those weapons can be turned not only against Israel, but against the U.S. -- and her vital interests, as well. For that reason, Israel must maintain a qualitative edge in weaponry. That is not only a vital Israeli interest, but it is also a vital American interest.

4.  Don't blame Israel if she thinks that she can't depend upon anyone but herself. That is the inescapable conclusion to be drawn from the unseemly speed with which the United States has shown herself capable of throwing an erstwhile ally under the bus to accommodate "the Arab street."

5.  The policy of appeasement, accommodation, and engagement has utterly and completely failed. The U.S. has sought to engage with Iran while tolerating dictatorships with which the U.S. thought she could do business. That policy has sent a message of weakness on the one hand and venality on the other. The U.S. must stand up for her own values with everyone. Of no less importance, however, is the fact that the U.S. can no longer afford to turn a blind eye to policies and incitements that would start with the destruction of Israel but end with the destruction of the West. Those policies, to paraphrase Churchill, have been the equivalent of the vain hopes of being the last in the room to be eaten by the tiger.

I like Mr Gordon's assessment very much.  For the U.S. to have ANY influence in the region we MUST stand tall with Israel...  For it is with Israel that friendship can be found.  The Arabs cannot be trusted!
