Obama’s surrender to Russia: betrays allies, scraps promised missile defense

The end of the world as we knew it ………. the mysterious elevation of evil

when I asked if Obama would bow to Putin. How right I was.

Obama abandons our allies in a breathtaking surrender. Perhaps if Poland and the Czech Republic go jihad and come out with some anti-American, anti-semitic rhetoric they can gain some ground with  the Muhammadan president. Sheesh.

All kidding aside, this is a nightmare. Unconscionable in the extreme. Sixty four years of American hegemony
down the drain. Fresh on the heels of the NIS report saying that China is becoming a
threat. (hat tip Van)

 

“It represents the appalling appeasement of Russian
aggression and a willingness to sacrifice American allies on the altar of
political expediency.”

 

WASHINGTON (CNN) — The Obama administration will scrap the controversial missile defense shield program in Eastern Europe, a senior administration official confirmed to CNN Thursday.

Vice President Joe Biden earlier refused to confirm to CNN that the George W. Bush-era plan was being shelved.

But he did explain the logic of doing so, saying Iran — a key concern for the United States — was not a threat.

What?

Happy Molotov-Ribbentrop Day! Jules Crittenden (hat tip Lovely Larwyn)

President Obama celebrates the 70th anniversary of the fruition of the famous
non-aggression pact … the Sept. 17, 1939 Soviet invasion of Poland* … with a big
present for Stalin wannabe Vladimir Putin. He scraps Euro missile shield! Reuters:

PRAGUE/WARSAW (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama has told east European
states he is backing away from plans for an anti-missile shield there, in a move
that may ease Russian-U.S. ties but fuel fears of resurgent Kremlin
influence.

Russia said it would welcome abandonment of the plans, which have been a
major source of Russian-U.S. tensions.

Tensions gone!

The shield, involving interceptor missiles in Poland and a radar complex in
the Czech republic, was promoted by Obama’s predecessor George W. Bush to defend
against any missile launches from “rogue” states such as Iran and North
Korea.

The Wall Street Journal newspaper said Washington had decided Iran was not as
advanced in developing long range missiles as it had previously thought.

The Obama administration seeks to “reset” battered ties with Russia so that
the two former Cold War foes can cooperate on Iran, on fighting Taliban
insurgents in Afghanistan and on reducing their vast arsenals of nuclear
weapons.

Russia is allowing the United States to move trains carrying supplies for
U.S. forces across the country via Central Asia to Afghanistan, avoiding routes
through Pakistan that had come under frequent attack from the Taliban.

Washington also wants Russian support in economic sanctions against Tehran,
which it accuses of developing nuclear weapons.

Diplomats in Moscow say Russian hardliners could read the shield backdown as
a sign of U.S. weakness. Far from doing the bidding of the United States, they
may instead press for further gains to shore up Russian power in the former
Soviet bloc.

No kidding. Hey, remember what a belly laugh the Russkies got out of leaking
Neville’s … I mean Barack’s double secret letter proposing the appeasement
for cooperation vs evil swap
?

“This would be very bad,” said Witold Waszczykowski, deputy head of Poland’s
National Security Bureau which advises President Lech Kaczynski. “Without the
shield we would de facto be losing a strategic alliance with Washington.”

Ignoring U.S. assurances that the system was not targeted at Russia,
President Dmitry Medvedev threatened last year to station missiles in a Russian
enclave near Poland if the United States implemented the plan.

For Poland, the timing of the announcement is particularly sensitive.
Thursday marked the 70th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of eastern Poland
following a pact between Moscow and Nazi Germany, an event seen by Poles as “a
stab in the back.”

“I hope this is just a coincidence,” said Waszczykowski.

Actually, it probably is. The Obama administration doesn’t study history. It
reimagines it. If there is any purposefulness to this date, then its because the
Ivans proposed it: “Hey there, my yankee imperialist capitalist lackey fellow
traveling tovarich. OK, we’ll make this deal. One thing, could you announce it
on Sept. 17? Works better for us. (Muffled giggle).”

Have to say, I like the part about Eastern European leaders getting their
phone calls after midnight. Kind of mean phone pranky way of telling your pals
it’s over. “Hi, Czech Republic? Poland? You awake? You might want to check
something. Is your refrigerator running? Ha ha ha!”

Dismay in Europe as Obama ditches missile
defence

President Obama dismayed America’s allies in Europe
and angered his political opponents at home today when he formally ditched plans
to set up a missile defence shield in Poland and the Czech Republic.The
project had been close to the heart of Mr Obama’s predecessor, President Bush,
who had argued before leaving office in January that it was needed to defend
against long-range ballistic missile attacks from rogue states such as Iran and
North Korea.

But it had hobbled relations with
Russia…CONTD

Polish PM wouldn’t take U.S. calls

Polish Prime
Minister Donald Tusk confirmed today that he declined last night to take a call
from the U.S. informing him of the decision to scrap planned missile-defense
bases in his country.Two U.S.-based sources close to the Polish
government said Thursday that Tusk also rejected a call from Secretary of State
Hillary Clinton — on the grounds that, as the head of the government, he should
speak to the president.
