On Wednesday there was a very funny post at Exurban League: Obama Reaches Out to ‘Moderate’ Pirate Community. Well, why not?
If, like me, you are concerned about the path to perdition that is the Obama administration’s foreign policy (and domestic policy), you can still find an abundance of very dark humor (no pun intended) in this band of clever bumblers. How about President Obama’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (side note: how did we get to this??), who has signed on to the concept of talking to “moderate Taliban” in Afghanistan? Maybe the staff at CNN is taking this seriously, but you can almost hear the guffaws over at the Huffington Post, not exactly a hot-bed of conservatism.
So it’s not much of a stretch to imagine the One looking for a negotiating partner among the outlaw-Muslim terrorists of the Indian Ocean. Just a minute. He has done just that.
Remember Vice President Joe Biden’s words of warning to Mr. Obama’s supporters last year? “Gird your loins.” he said. “Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama …. 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.”
Here’s a question: What if the world tested “this guy” and nobody noticed? Let’s take a look at the events of the past three or four days. How about the North Korean test launch of a missile that could reach Hawaii or Alaska with a nuclear warhead? What about Iran’s “Nuclear Day” announcement that they now have 7,000 centrifuges (up from 6,000) and a new plant for developing uranium fuel? What about Somali Muslim terrorists hijacking an American ship on the high seas, and taking the captain hostage?
Never mind, because today the President is talking about housing.
