    1. Biden: Obama will be tested:
    "It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don't remember anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."
    Biden: Obama will be tested - Ben Smith - POLITICO.com
    Even Biden knew this guy was a lightweight!
    a. There is some doubt that Senator Obama knew who the president of France was. Obama writes letter to Chirac - blogosphere goes crazy - CSMonitor.com
    b. And, this Illinois senator suggested that he would offer American diplomatic intervention to aid Pakistan toward Kashmir. Barack Obama's Kashmir thesis! - Express India

    2. “The Iranian regime, having spent the first couple of weeks of Barack Obama's presidency preemptively scorning his overtures, mocking his weakness, and assuring the world its nuclear program is nonnegotiable, last Tuesday reported it had launched a satellite into orbit, making clear that Iran intends to have a missile launch capability on which to deploy its nuclear warheads.” Testing 1-2-3 | The Weekly Standard
    a. “In the last several days it has been reported that Iran is planning to place medium-range missiles in Venezuela. Such information seems to confirm last November’s article published by the German daily Die Welt. The newspaper reported that an agreement was signed last October between the two countries; a fact that has remained mostly unknown to the public.” Breitbart

    3. “On the same day as the Iranian satellite launch, it was reported that, under pressure and inducements from Russia, Kyrgyzstan would no longer allow the United States to use an airbase that supports coalition military operations in Afghanistan. This came as Obama plans to increase U.S. force levels in Afghanistan, and the already overburdened supply lines from Pakistan seem increasingly vulnerable to attacks from Taliban forces in that country's frontier areas.” (Testing 1-2-3 | The Weekly Standard.)
    a. And, continued to back down: “Barack Obama has abandoned the controversial Pentagon plan to build a missile defence system in Europe that had long soured relations with Russia.”

    b. Announcing the formation of a “rapid reaction force” with six former Soviet republics, a regional Russian-led strike force meant to reassert Russian hegemony in the Muslim belt north of Afghanistan. Krauthammer: Obama faces foreign tests and shows a lack of spine - Houston Chronicle

    d. Obama begs Russians not to make him look bad before the election: “Obama tells Russia's Medvedev more flexibility after election” Obama tells Russia's Medvedev more flexibility after election | Reuters

    4. “And on that very same day, North Korea, having in the first week of the Obama presidency scrapped all its agreements with South Korea and warned of war on the Korean peninsula, was reported to be preparing to test a new ballistic missile, the Taepodong-2, which is intended to eventually have a long enough range to hit U.S. territory.” Kristol, (op. cit.)

    a. Foreign policy expert Arnaud de Borchgrave tells Newsmax that U.S. intelligence agencies exhibited serious flaws in being “totally blind” to the death of North Korea leader Kim Jong Il.

    Despite the massive resources of the United States’ 16 intelligence services, with100,000 employees and an annual combined budget of about $80 billion a year, they didn’t know about Kim’s death on Saturday until North Korea finally announced it on Sunday, the award-winning journalist noted during an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV.

    5. “Pakistan freed from house arrest A.Q. Khan, the notorious proliferator who sold nuclear technology to North Korea, Libya and Iran. Ten days later, Islamabad capitulated to the Taliban, turning over to its tender mercies the Swat Valley, 100 miles from the capital. Not only will sharia law now reign there, but the democratically elected secular party will be hunted down as the Pakistani army stands down.” Krauthammer, (op. cit.)

    So, is this President capable of walking and chewing gum at the same time? Is he competent to juggle all of the responsibilities of his office? Perhaps not, based on his inane statement to CNN's Anderson Cooper, in February of 2009: "Look, the only measure of my success as president, when people look back five years from now or nine years from now, is going to be, did I get this economy fixed?"

    6. With three years to negotiate with Iraq on a basis for leaving an American troop presence in Iraq to serve as a counterbalance to Iranian pressure in post war Iraq, and to protect the American diplomats and embassy there, he was unable to!

    Rather than this event as one of promise-keeping, it is one more sign of the incompetence of this President.

    He has no more achievements in foreign policy than in domestic.

    "The formation will be distributed as follows: 8,000 servicemen labeled US diplomats would be attached to operations command centers housed in secret, secure quarters at the embassy in Baghdad and in US consulates in Iraqi cities, including missions yet to be opened,” states the report. “Another 7,000 troops were classified as US security officers – 4,000 for protecting “US diplomats” and 3,000 as military instructors.”
    Prison Planet.com » 15,000 US Troops to Remain In Iraq, Renamed “Diplomats”
    (the source is the Depka File)

    By way of comparison, the US has some 60,000 troops in Europe.
    BBC NEWS | Americas | US troops to remain in Europe

    7. Failure to destroy the drone that landed in Iran is a dereliction of duty.
    “At the very least, this shows why the idea of Obama as “commander in chief” is absurd and laughable. Who ever heard of a Commander who was afraid to command troops into battle? At it’s worst, it shows a conspiracy theory of the highest magnitude. Many could rightly conclude that Obama’s refusal to either destroy or recapture the drone would prove that he purposely gave them the drone.” EXPOSED! Obama REFUSED To Recapture Or Destroy Million Dollar Drone In Iran

    8. Another foreign policy failure by the pretender in the White House:
    “The United States is "disgusted" by Russia and China's decision to veto a U.N. Security Council resolution today that called for an immediate end to the violence in Syria, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice said today….The vetoes came after a week of intense negotiations to gain Russian support for a resolution it had opposed from the start. The resolution supported an Arab League plan that called for an immediate end to the violence in Syria and a political solution to the crisis. “

    Israel
    Canada

    10. Obama engagement policy 'in tatters' after North Korean rocket defiance
    US officials expect Pyongyang to carry out third nuclear test in near future, respresenting significant policy failure for president.. Barack Obama's policy of engagement with North Korea lies "in tatters" after it was effectively shot down by Pynongyang's defiant but failed attempt to launch a long-range rocket.
    Former US officials closely involved with North Korea policy said Washington's attempt to win agreement from Pyongyang to abandon its development of nuclear weapons and rockets in exchange for desperately-needed food aid has failed.

    The world knows Obama is weak. I wouldn't be surprised if Iran says they've made a deal and Obama takes credit for it just to help in his reelection, of course if he is reelected...business as usual for Iran

    According to the 'logic' of Bush and Cheney and Rumsfeld and all you idiots who agreed with them in 2003,

    invasion of North Korea is now necessary.

    Why don't you attack Obama on those grounds?

    I notice that many of the Obama supporters capable of thinking have avoided this OP, as it is largely dispositive in terms of what a colossal failure this fraud-of-a-President is....

    ....then there is the lowly analysand who regularly falls into the quicksand.....

    ...that would be you.

    After what passes for insight on your part, you deftly pick your way through the intellectual Brier Patch, and find a solution: 'why not demand that Obama attack the Crazy-Kingdom!'

    Brilliant!

    Just brilliant!

    A multitude of foreign policy flops by this incompetent, and you find a solution which doesn't exist: 'why not demand that Obama attack the Crazy-Kingdom!'


    One cannot but be impressed by the multitude of manner which you find to humiliate yourself!
    You practically take the job out of my hands!

    At times I can see you almost at the level of being able to alphabetize a package of M & M's!
